Pros:Diminutive size, Good Price, Easy clean, well thought out cooking features

Cons:Timer takes getting used to if this is not your first microwave

The Bottom Line: An excellent design oven that brings the microwave back to what it should be - a small appliance. Easy to use and clean, perfect for normal daily use.


This is an innovative design for a microwave which has the controls behind the door eliminating the need for a side panel which greatly reduces the size of the unit.

This compact 13" box comes in a multitude of colors. I would love to have one in stainless steel, but mine is black.

There is a turntable which measures nearly 11 inches in diameter, which can hold a large plate or cooking bowl. It has 600 watts of output power which is more than enough for any kind of microwave cooking.

Although at first glance you would think that this is ideal for a small kitchen or a student, and it is. However I think it is more than acceptable for any family that uses a microwave for anything except perhaps roasting a turkey. Its big enough inside the small box to do almost anything. For our family it was decided to go for this for the simple reason we evaluated how we use the microwave and found this to be the perfect size. We generally are not preparing meals in the mic, just some warming, reheating, and defrosting sometimes. So the Microwave form sharp became a small appliance in our kitchen instead of a focal point.

It has a quiet operation and a good touch pad control panel behind the door. The timer takes a bit of getting used to, since the timer is set in intervals of 15 seconds. So if you want 20 seconds you press it twice for 30 seconds and watch the clock for 20 seconds, not that 30 seconds will damage your food, but it takes a bit to get used to if you are buying this as a replacement. If this is your first microwave then disregard this timer part. (You won't know the difference)

Having said all that about the seconds timer - it does have 3 very handy other settings that I believe compensate for that. It has a one button minute setting Called Minute Plus and Compu Cook which has automatic setting for a large variety of foods and an Express Defrost system that works very well.


It is easy to clean up as it has a smooth exterior surface that you can gently wash with soap and water or a damp rag. The interior is also easy to clean as there major bulges or caverns that some of the older microwaves had inside.

hope this helps.
