Comments about Sharp 650 Watt Warm & Toasty Microwave Oven:

This particular microwave has helped me cook for my family in numerous ways. I especially enjoy the convenience of not having to heat up the whole house with the large oven attached to our gas range. One can save on gas and mess. It's awesome for mini pizzas, just the other day I even cooked a cornish hen, so I proceeded to cook a small roast . I'm in a wheelchair so ease of operation is a big factor . The model says it's fr 2003,hoewver, I got it at a steal price . 7years ago and haven't stopped using it since.this convection oven is perfect for cookies even a single layer cake. It also has features for grilling items and even microaving and toasting up to 5 pieces of bread. who needs any other piece of equiptment .

Great multi-purpose microwave/toaster oven - Sharp R-55TS

Comments about Sharp 650 Watt Warm & Toasty Microwave Oven:

Space is a premium in our kitchen so when I went looking for a new microwave, I wanted something that could do at least double-duty. That's how I found the Sharp 650-Watt Compact Microwave Toaster Oven. This device claimed to be able to microwave, toast, bake and broil, all in a package that wasn't much bigger than a compact microwave oven.

The idea that I could combine my microwave and my toaster oven was quite alluring. It turns out that reality isn't quite so perfect, but overall I've generally been happy with my Sharp Microwave Toaster Oven. I'll be honest the first thing that caught my eye with this oven is that it looks good.

This is a 0.5 cubic foot oven so it's not that big. Don't be expecting to put a turkey or even a chicken in there and trying to cook it. On the outside, this oven takes up a little more space than your standard compact microwave oven, which is mostly to the heat dissipater shield in the back I think. Dimension wise, the oven on the outside measures just under 18 inches wide, about 11 ½ inches high and just over 15 inches in depth. I have to admit to being a bit confused by the controls. There are a series of 12 buttons along with a dial, three buttons above the dial and an LCD screen above those buttons. This lets you cook via a number of different pre-programmed settings but at the same time can make it a bit intimidating to microwave something for say, 2 minutes.

I have always been disappointed at the power of the microwave in this oven. It just seems to lack some strength. Things that take a minute or two to warm up in other ovens may take several minutes in this oven. Besides microwaving, I use the baking settings more than anything else for small baking jobs. It's great for cooking the store-bought rolled biscuits, rolls and stuff like that. Just put them in a small pan, pop them in and use the biscuit pre-set and off you go. Toasting is okay in this oven, not great. I've only broiled a few things in this oven over the years, but it has worked well. It just tends to make a mess in the oven as the food tends to splatter a bit as it broils and you've really got to get in afterwards and clean the oven, otherwise it just cakes to the sides and is a real pain to get out.

Besides the power of the microwave and the potential to accidentally bake or broil something you were going to microwave, I really like the Sharp 650-Watt Compact Microwave Toaster Oven.
