Microwave Oven Ratings: The Top Nuker

Because I have an existing trim kit, getting a particular microwave oven size is extremely important to me. Unfortunately, Sharp microwave keeps changing its models. Fortunately, this one not only fits perfectly, but it has more features than the last one. And, it is less expensive. And, it works faster. The good: fast, attractive, lots of features, big. The bad: nothing really, except my wife wishes the buttons were slightly larger. I think microwave oven ratings are needed to know what of the few products that get better and cost less with time. Highly recommended ratings.

The thermostat on my stove died with a lukewarm casserole in the oven and dinner guests arriving. I had to transfer the potatoes, chicken and cheese into two round baking dishes and then I cooked each for 8 minutes in my new Sharp microwave. My Chicken & Potato Mexican Casserole was perfect, my dinner party was saved and I love my Sharp Carousel Microwave! Also, this is my third microwave and the first one that makes a perfect bag of popcorn – no scorch and all the kernels popped. Everything about this purchase was exceptional rating- it even arrived a day early.

In addition, the black microwave’s menu-action screen adds to the overall convenience. It scrolls step-by-step cooking instructions across the display in English, Spanish, or French, while the function key simplifies the programming of 10 useful, non-cooking functions. Just press the function key and the menu-action screen will display the steps necessary to complete the desired function.
