Summary: We had our original microwave replaced in our 5th wheel under our warranty policy, they installed the Sharp R820BK-2. We used it the first time as a microwave to heat some food. It worked OK. Then I put some microwave popcorn in it and set it for 3 minutes. Only a few kernels popped, then reset it for four minutes, same thing, it actually burned the popcorn instead of popping it., it did not have enough power to even pop the popcorn.
Summary: We purchased this unit when the microwave oven that came with our new house gave out 3 years into the house. It has been nearly 8 years since we purchased this thing and it has worked wonderfully, its been a great back up oven for heating up chrispy fried foods. Making all kinds of toasted breads, mini pizza's etc when heating up a giant oven seemed like a pain in the arse... It has been a wonderul appliance that's been used pretty much every single day.
great service, nice product at a competitive price

Summary: I ordered this product on the morning of 6/25/13 and received it via ups on 6/26/13 in the early evening. Delivery service was great.the product though does have an irritating problem but minor to me. that is the led display uses a yellowish color light making it difficult to read the numbers/msg unless you "cup" your hand over the light. or view from a distance. otherwise the product works great.
Summary: i had a very similar sharp convection microwave model that had many of these advantages as far as settings and had it for 21 years. when it finally no longer worked i purchased this one from another vendor and it was considerably much more expensive, but so worth it. it is so easy to use and program, and the numerous presets are great. it is a larger foot print and perhaps the back is not attractive, but i have it on a kitchen cart and the front looks great.
Summary: "This Sharp Microwave seeks to combine your zapper with a convection cooker and toaster oven. Can it deliver on this triple threat? Reviews online are very positive. Customers say that the unique combination cooker does a great job on meat and other dishes since it combines the speed of a microwave with the browning of a grill.
Pros: Hybrid Cooking Elements can heat and grill and bake like much pricier countertop brands.
Pie Plate Popcorn and Coffee -- It's a Convection Oven Too

Summary: Adequate. To pop popcorn efficiently requires we insert a glass pie plate upside down--so the bag of popcorn is about an inch above the turntable--otherwise only about half pops. A cup of coffee also reheats better on the pie plate. Do I like the pie plate on the turntable routine? Well it is better on the turntable than setting on the counter waiting for the next time we want popcorn.
