Summary: Never, ever buy an LG microwave! Three years ago, I splurged and spent $800 on a microwave/convection oven combo. I trusted that it was a quality product and that would last -- wrong on both counts. In less than three years, the control panel failed and the repair was a control panel replacement at $670 which could only be made by a LG approved repair shop. LG customer service offered anything but service.
Summary: We are adding LG appliances to our kitchen every time we need them. This microwave warms, cook, defrost and all in a simple way with selections for every kind of food you need to cook or warm. We recommend it as a valuable addition to any kitchen.
