Summary: This is a replacement oven for my 14 year old which had a part that went out. The cost of the part was almost as much as the full price of the NEW microwave with more cu ft and higher wattage. I couldn't be happier and the cost was so very low compared to the price of a new replacement of the old model. The old model was not a Sharp but from what I hear was probably manufactured by Sharp. At any rate I couldn't be happier.
