Summary: I have owned the unit since 2009. While it is convenient to use and looks stylish, it has broken twice. It is now not even repairable. My old Sharp carousel that is 12 years old has out lived and out performed this much more expensive one.
Summary: We bought this unit for a remodeled high end kitchen. I has been installed for approximately six months and we are extremely happy with our purchase. No issues whatsoever. I love the easy automatic open/close feature and not having to bend down to put items in the microwave. The unit holds much larger plates and platters than I was able to put in my former microwave, which is really nice.
Summary: Do not use this product! Should be recalled. Our 2.5 year old microwave started making a grinding noise and smoking. If I were not there to stop it the whole house would have caught on fire. After this happened I googled this problem and saw so many people saying the same thing. All i keep thinking about is what would have happened if i had left the room. Sharp fix your product now before someone gets killed or they loose their house.
Summary: Since this appliance is quite pricey I am very disappointed in the lack of durability. I really loved the idea of the microwave in a drawer and not over the oven or on the counter top. We have been using it for 7 months now and I am happy with it so far except for one flaw. The laminating over the control buttons seem to be made very cheaply. After only about 4 months of use it started to come lose over the buttons that are most frequently used.
Summary: I've had this a relatively short time so my review is subject to update. the controls require a little reading to understand but other than that this is like something from the kitchen of the future. The automatic pop out / pop in is smooth and quiet. The power is sufficient to get the job done quickly and the microwaves are dispersed so there are no hot spots.
Summary: This machine is just becoming an ongoing nightmare. The company that pumps these items out, does stand by their product. I would be very hesitant to buy and make sure you have some insurance. Get ready for breakage.
Summary: Great product. Love having my microwave in the island rather than over the range. Limited options for island microwaves. This is the cheapest option. I went high end with the rest of my appliances since this is the island it's not that visible so I was happy with my choice.
Summary: I love this microwave. I needed something that could go in my new kitchen island and I did not want to spend a fortune for something that had mediocre ratings. This microwave has had mixed reviews but it is working great for our household. I would say the only somewhat negative is that the door is slightly slow to open, compared to a regular microwave door that opens manually. Overall, I am very pleased with this purchase.
