A Pretty Good Microwave, But Nothing To Rave About.

By 

from USA

Comments about Sharp Family-Size 1.3 Cu. Ft. 1000W Microwave Oven:

This is a microwave that will serve a pretty good function, but if you want a stylish or pretty utensil for your kitchen this isn't it. If you simply want to have your food cooked or heated adequately, then this will do the job.

Performance
It performed exactly how you would expect a microwave to perform. It cooked and heated the food adequately. There was nothing spectacular though and no special features to mention.

Settings/Features
I found the setting features to be easy to figure out and to use. I was able to use them to do everything I needed with the microwave.

Ease of Cleaning
I found this microwave relatively easy to clean. The plate was detachable and could easily be washed in the sink. The inside and outside surfaces were also easily wiped off.

Ease of Use
I found it quite easy to use, I can't imagine that many people would find it all that complicated as microwaves go.

Durability
We have had this microwave for a while now and it still seems to be working fine. It still does exactly what it did on the first day we got it.

Design
It's design is practical. It isn't the most stylish or the prettiest but it would suit most kitchens in my opinion, unless you have a very unique style.

Cheap microwave that does the job

By 

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Sharp Family-Size 1.3 Cu. Ft. 1000W Microwave Oven:

For as cheap as this microwave was it sure did the job. I was nervous about buying it but I was low on money and needed a microwave. I thought for sure I would have buy a new one in a year but this has lasted me 6 years!

Settings/Features
There is a kitchen timer on it which I use quite often. It also has a few different buttons to cook specific foods such as baked potatoes, soup, veggies, and popcorn.

Ease of Cleaning
The turn table comes apart and you can put it in the dishwasher to clean it. The inside and outside are pretty easy to wipe down.

Ease of Use
All of the buttons are pretty self explanatory. You can even hit a number like 1 or 2 and the food will cook for 1 or 2 minutes. If you want 1 and a half minutes you just press cook and enter the time you want.

Durability
This has held up for 6 years and I do use the microwave daily. My son loves french toast sticks and they are frozen and he eats them every morning for breakfast so it definitely gets used daily. It still heats up food great. My son's french toast sticks do not come out soggy or tough.

Design
It is not the most fashionable and flashy looking but the black color does go with the rest of my kitchen and appliances.

Great value

By 

from Grand Rapids, MI

Comments about Sharp Family-Size 1.3 Cu. Ft. 1000W Microwave Oven:

I have had my microwave for just over a year. I have had many microwaves. This one is one of my favorites. It didn't cost a lot but it's well built. The inside cleans up really nice. We seem to have a lot of splatters and splashes so I always worry about cleaning. Just a damp cloth and the junk comes right off. No major stains, the inside seems to not get many of those. The turntable is very easy to clean also. The microwave has a lot of power. I like that you can choose how much power you want. The preprogrammed settings work well. The soup and popcorn work great, they don't burn. The defrost is good, I use the speed defrost a lot. It works really well and doesn't cook the food, just defrost. I find this microwave is very consistent. If I microwave for 30 seconds the liquid is always the same hotness. I would recommend this microwave to anyone. It is a great value for your money and great quality product.

Powerful, Roomy Microwave w/ Annoying Beeping

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Sharp Family-Size 1.3 Cu. Ft. 1000W Microwave Oven:

This is a roomy, powerful microwave that has lots of options. My only real complaint is that it is noisy. It's a little noisy when running, but the real issue is that the microwave constantly beeps when done cooking. The annoying beeping stops when you open the door and that's ok if you plan on getting that food out immediately, but that's not always the case. In the past, I used to use my old microwave to heat up a cup of tea and I could then get to that tea whenever it was convenient. Now, that's not an option, I have to get the tea out right away.

The black color works well in my kitchen, so it works for me. I think this microwave looks nice on my countertop that contains black and fits in with my black fridge and stove.

Settings/Features
There are lots of features on this microwave and honestly, I don't use most of them. I do use the melt/soften button to soften butter. In my old microwave, it wasn't as easy to make sure I just softened the butter.

Durability
I have had the microwave for around two years with no issues.

Design
This microwave has a very big interior. There is enough space to rewarm casseroles.

Great microwave

By 

from USA

Comments about Sharp Family-Size 1.3 Cu. Ft. 1000W Microwave Oven:

This microwave is wonderful to have in my kitchen. It really does a wonderful job. First of all I love that this microwave is affordable. When we went shopping for a microwave I could not believe how expensive some of them were. This is one of the more affordable brands but I'm really glad we bought it because it works great. First of all in my kitchen we have all black appliances so this microwave looks wonderful in my kitchen. It does not take up too much space and it's not too big and bulky. I feel that one thousand watts is just enough for us. We don't use the microwave all the time. Usually just for re heating leftovers. This microwave does a great job at re heating. I would recommend this microwave.

Performance
This microwave has great performance. It always does the job.

Settings/Features
Great setting and features on this particular microwave.

Ease of Cleaning
It's not so easy to clean.

Ease of Use
Extremely easy to use!

Durability
Have had it for over two years and it's still working!

Design
Great design and matches my other kitchen appliances.

Our family microwave.

By 

from USA

Comments about Sharp Family-Size 1.3 Cu. Ft. 1000W Microwave Oven:

This microwave has been in our family for quite a while now. I would say that we have been using it for at least four to five years now. It comes with a warranty, so if anything ever happens to it, the company will replace it for you, free of charge. However, our family has never had an issue with this microwave, so it has not had to be replaced. This microwave is durable, reliable, and great for large families that need something to eat while they are on the go.

Performance
This microwave performs at an outstanding rate. It heats up your food very fast, and it never goes out on you while you are using it.

Settings/Features
This microwave has a lot of neat settings on it. It has several buttons on it that explain the amount of time an individual item will need to defrost or cook. Some of many examples include meats, potatoes, and vegetables.

Ease of Cleaning
This microwave is just as easy to clean as any other microwave you have owned in the past would be.

Ease of Use
This product is very easy to use.

Durability
This microwave is very durable.

Design
The design of this microwave is simple, yet modern.
