I have had a lot of bad luck over the years with microwaves, so this time around I was willing to spend a little bit more on one that got rave reviews across the board. I haven't had it long enough to know that it will continue to work as well as it has, but I can say that it has all of the features that I need and it has yet to let me down in any way.
Easily the best thing about this microwave is that it is quiet, but that doesn't keep it from cooking my food at the right times. I hate loud microwaves because I am usually close to them while they are cooking, so it is nice not to have that loud humming going on in the background all day.
Other features that I really like about this Sharp microwave are the quick start button, which allows you to add time by 30 seconds, and all of the presets that it has. This has every feature that I have liked on past microwaves, plus two or three more.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this microwave because it isn't too expensive and you can rely on it to cook what you need in a short amount of time.
