Summary: We bought this same model twelve years ago along with the trim kit for a built-in installation in a cabinet above our main oven. After 12 years of use, the magnetron recently died. It is just amazing that we were able to get exactly the same model after all those years and were able to use the old trim kit saving about $100.00. Apparently Sharp found the model to be a winner and stuck with it. I agree.
Summary: Received unit in 24 hr after placing order. Unit is performing as it should. As a foodservice tech I work on these units and have seen them in use in a large grocery chain store used for cooking demo. This is a good oven that does hold up in that type of operation so it should be real good in the home enviroment.
Summary: Purchased another Sharp micro/convection over after my 30 year old one finally died. NOW no one will help with a serious problem with the convection part of the one we just received last week. The person and place it came from said they would know accept a return and Sharp gave me only two places to have it repaired, both miles away from my small town.
Summary: This is the third Sharp Carousel convection/microwave that we have bought. My wife really loves the convection component for baking. My rounded paunch agrees. I like it because of the interior size (1.5 cu ft) and the fact that it fits my built-in space perfectly (26"). Noisier than the one it replaced, no new features. Was relieved that it had been manufactured only four months prior. Bought through Amazon, fulfilled through DataVis.com.
Summary: It works really well and has great features like "sensor heat" and "sensor reheat". It has convection heating, as well, so I am using this oven more and more and my wall Ovens les and less. Great product.
