Summary: Replaced the original Sharp in our RV after 17 years of use with exactly the same make and model. It fit perfectly and looks great. The look and operation of the oven is very close to the original. Look forward to many years of use from this one.
Roll the dice to see if you get one that is not severely damaged upon arrival...

Summary: Never able to use it. Ordered one, it arrived damaged. Returned it and ordered another and it was in worse shape than the first. It was obvious that BOTH were previously opened. I wonder if they were returns from other customers. The factory packaging is awful and really insufficient. It is little wonder it was tore apart in shipping. Amazon return was just fine...I just hated to use it and now I still don't have a microwave.
Summary: We have had Sharp Microwaves for many years and when the Microwave Convection Oven in our Motor Home got tired we shopped around and found that the Sharp Model 1874 would be a perfect replacement due to it's measurements and the fact that the door opens within the framework of the Microwave Oven, not hinged on the side.
Summary: We used the Dacor labelled version of this aplliance for 10 years before it gave out. Found out this is the exact same appliance as the Dacor, at half the price. So we ordered this one, but returned it immediately because it had dents, so obviously had been dropped, and seemed to be making a louder noise than the old Dacor when operating and I was afraid it had internal damage. Amazon was as always good on making full refund on its return.
Summary: This oven MIGHT work but UPS tried to destroy it on the way. The UPS delivery man, put the oven box on the porch, ran the bell and RAN to his truck. I opened the door and hollered "Thanks", his reply was " It's really heavy" and drove away. The exterior of the box was in such bad shape that I took pictures of it before bringing it in. I followed the directions to open the box and when I lifted off the exterior box, pieces of broken styrofoam fell every where.
Summary: We gave this to my daughter for her birthday. Her husband installed it over their range. She loves the convenience of both another oven and the option of a microwave. the convection is large enough for a big baked chicken.
Summary: Fits perfectly in previous Sharp model space. Heating seems the same as the previous model although this one states 850 watts and the old one said 1100 watts. Exhaust does not work as well as the other model. Fan seems to work same on low and high speed, no difference in sound or intensity of fan sound. One would think the low would seem quieter.
Summary: The microwave/convection oven broke in my RV and this is the replacement. I had it installed by a professional RV repair tech and it went in easily. You do need to correctly measure the opening! I reviewed the instructions slightly, but the use of this product is pretty intuitive if you have used a convection oven before. I absolutely love the built in turntable, which I didn't have in my old oven.
