Summary: We purchased this microwave convection in July, it is a built in unit. When using the convection feature it has never reached the programmed temperature. So we tried to get it serviced through Sharp.
Cons: Microwave just Stopped heating after ONLY 22 months!! Convection and ALL other element of unit work just heating of microwave??? Took in for service Seems that wiring harness needs to be replaced?? Sharp called me today They DO NOT HAVE THE PARTS TO FIX IT!!!! ARE U KIDDING ME MANY VENDORS STILL ...
Summary: I cannot remember a meal in our household where we have not used the convection feature of this oven. It's great for heating rolls, chicken nuggets, frozen lasagna, etc. Simply put: life would be more complicated without it.
Pros: This is the third Sharp Carousel we have purchased since 1991. The first lasted until 1999 and was damaged due to an electrical power surge. The second lasted 16 years of daily use and still worked when we replaced it with our current one.
Summary: This is the third time we have purchased this oven from Sharpe. The first unit we bought in 1991 lasted until 1999, at which time it was damaged during an electrical storm. This was entirely our fault. We replaced the first unit with a second, which lasted until 2015-16 years.
Pros: Dual function Design Value for you dollar Life expectancy Heats to 450F Makes great popcorn

Summary: I had this microwave installed in May 2013. I use this as a smaller second oven when cooking for just 2 or 3 people. The unit I'm using has been great for cooking both as a microwave and convection oven. No complaints on that. But I have three major disappointments.
Summary: My rating reflects the probability that it will arrive damaged and have to be returned. Before noticing the damage on the first one that was shipped we ran it and it seemed to be just what we wanted. If I could be assured that I would receive one undamaged I would rate it 5 stars.
Pros: Well designed combination microwave and convection oven. We have owned an earlier version of this machine for 35 years and it is still going strong.
Cons: We ordered...and returned two of these. Both arrived with the outer case damaged, even though the shipping box did not show signs of damage. The metal case is made of fairly light gauge sheet metal, and there is apparently not enough styrofoam to hold it in place inside the box to prevent damage ...
