Appears good

published

This was purchased on reading reviews in this site. Bought last week. Initial view is that it is quite good. Minor issue with timer. Only seem to be able to set at 10 sec increments. Would like to be able to use 1 or at least 5 sec intervals. Also the door glass is quite dark. If you are using dark items in the cooking area, a little difficult to see the items. Overall pretty happy at present. Will definitely update if any issues identified.

I like the size and the tint also the notification it gives when the food is ready. I decided to up date my microwave and this one was definitely cost effective.

Great Microwave, love the look of it too

published

Needed a new microwave to replace our old one so decided to purchase this one. So glad we did as it is great! Love the black and white look as a point of difference to the usual looking microwaves, I prefer this to the stock standard all silver or black. The music it plays was nice at the start but can become a little annoying if you don’t take the food out of the microwave as soon as it’s finished as it keeps chiming to alert you it’s done, that’s the only thing that annoys me about this microwave. It’s a great machine. Loved the fact it was anti bacterial coated inside.

Best Microwave Ever

published

This microwave is so easy to operate compared to others we've used. The outside panel lets it start operating for 30 secs with one touch and continues the add 30 second intervals with each touch. The panel inside lets you program any combination of power and time and has a special defrost function. Special programs include Reheat, Soften, Melt, Keep Warm and Make Yoghurt. I haven't used any special programs yet. The outside is very sleek looking with stainless steel and black glass and inside is easy to clean enamel. The time is very easy to set which is important to us since we have frequent power outages.
Best of all is a two year parts and labour warranty and an additional 8 years on all parts of the magnetron.

Where's the Timer function?

published

The microwave is good to live with, however we couldn't find the Timer function. We looked in the instruction manual and Online and yup, you guessed it, no mention of it. So this was disappointing on an appliance that rates itself up there with the best.

Great microwave easy to use

published

Bought this microwave during goodguys ebay sale. Great machine. When finished cooking music is played instead of a ding sound. But easy to leave finger print on the control panel. Because it is piano black

Simplicity to a T!

Programming and controls are well designed and intuitive to use. Absolutely love the minimalist and sleek look. The cute tunes and noises are not too loud of offensive either. 10/10

Perfect microwave!

published

Needed a new microwave so we brought this one. Great so far. Heats up real quick, kids love the sounds it makes. When you are busy, the sounds don't let you forget there's something in it. We have brought an LG fridge so this matches perfect!

Elegant looking and reliable cooking and reheat of food

published

Its simple and elegant looking with flush flat face that is easy to clean.
Most importantly it cooks and reheats food EVENLY. Love the defrosting function that actually thawls throughout. Only con is the tune it plays when it ends.

No Problems after 2 years

published

Have had this microwave for nearly 2 years and have had no issues. Cooks well and is easy to operate and clean. Looks very good in the kitchen. Grandchildren like the tune it makes when finished though i can take it or leave it. Sliding controls work well. When finished it has a fan cooling down cycle which should help in increasing its life.

Worked well but frustrating.

Sounds like a fault to me. Call LG, it will still be under warranty.
Never had that issue with ours.
