    Pros: fast, easy, versatile, convenient.

    Summary: I am on my 3rd of this same Sharp product. I know, how stupid is that? I always love the new one, it works great, and then about 1-1 1/2 years later, it starts to fritz out on me.  I guess I keep thinking the newer ones will hold up longer. I ... read more

    Pros: Powerful, large, bake and nuke
    Cons: Turntable mechanism breaks, hard to clean

    Summary: I bought this as a display model from Sears. I'd used many Sharp carousel microwaves before and been quite pleased with them, and I knew about the convection baking, so I wasn't squeamish about parting with $250+ for it. It bakes, it roasts, it ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use and operate and does an excellent job baking.
