Pretty good for the price
I bought this a few months ago and so far it's pretty good. It's so powerful you have to be very careful about how long you put things in for as it really goes hard and fast. The way it still makes a noise as its cooling really annoys my partner as the old one went quiet once it stopped cooking but it doesn't bother me. The grubby finger marks on the stainless steel opening mechanism really drive me nuts. It's almost impossible to keep it looking clean. But overall it functions well and wasn't a bad purchase.
makes cooking so much easier
Bought the microwave as an everyday necessity. It has indeed serve the purpose. Cooks/reheat food quickly. Takes a little bit of time to figure out the length of time, power for different foods. But most people can definitely figure it out without even referring to the manual. Relatively easy to clean and low maintenance. Light-weight and easy to transport when moving house. Overall, pretty decent everyday kitchen product.
Happy with the product.
Haven't had it long but very happy so far .Easy to use and does everything we need . Have to get used to the cooling down cycle.Very easy to see what's cooking inside.Had a Smeg previously and it lasted 12 years,hope this lasts as least as long.Would like the Beeps to say cooking or timer is finished to be a little louder.
This is perfect microwave
If you are trying to get the best microwave oven. Choose this product, as it works really well for me and my family. We use it a lot and has everything that makes family happy to warm food and cook some food as well.
I would greatly recommend it for everyone.
This is perfect
We have had this for a while really good one just watch the kids they don't put in it as you should no plastic in microwave it very loud it seems to be very well structured touch system is very soft and the one thing they should have changed the finish buzzer sound when it's done.
It’s a great relief to have this in the kitchen, in 1 minute the food gets heat. No other problems, it is a great product, andworth for every penny spent. This oven has express defrost and it also have 2 sequence cooking which lets to cook with multiple powers simultaneously.
Microwave is super quiet and very easy to use. I love that the defrost option is simple on the front as many microwaves as annoying to work out the defrost function. Works as well as any other microwave and it’s simple, heats quickly and worth the money to be honest
Great microwave, good price for features
Bought this after our 12 year old microwave died. At $229, I wish we’d upgraded sooner! Heaps quieter than older models. Cooks evenly. Looks great, nice and understated compared to some of the others in the shop eg LG. Only gripe is some features are a bit odd eg the four meal pre-selects are not dishes we’d choose and a waste of a button. Happy with the purchase.
Get what you pay for
Before this microwave, I hadn’t owned a microwave for over two years and had gotten used to not using a microwave. But this microwave is miles better than my previous one. There are many different settings like defrost and pizza mode, as far as I know it does everything a microwave should do. The microwave is quieter than my old one but still quite loud but normal for a microwave I guess. The hinge is a bing weak, feels sometimes like it will break if too much force put on.
Does the job
I haven't noticed any uneven cooking as other posters have put, but I generally over-microwave my food to ensure it is all hot and then I mix it anyway. I find this microwave very easy to use, and it is quite a quiet running microwave. So far I haven't seen any technical or physical faults in it, if you aren't looking for a top of the line microwave but something that does the job, this is the one for you.
Starting to have issues after 12 months...
The microwave has worked well for around the last 12 months, but has recently started having issues. When heating for prolonged periods it appears to start overheating, and then it appears to keep making all the right noises, but stops heating the food. Was great when it was working, but now starting to question longevity.
I expected a very good product but it heats unevenly. Sometimes too hot sometimes very little. A bit noisy too but it has large space and easy to clean. Its better than my previous one but not as per my expectations.So far it is working alright. Would recommend for reheating not for cooking.
The defrosting setting doesn't work like other microwaves I have used - can take longer and makes the food unevenly heated. 30 and 60 secs heating up makes it a little too hot instead of just warm or toasty. The beeping lasts a long time so you have to make sure you are there to stop it and note that it can't be changed. It has not worn down in 13 months since I have has it though.
This microwave does justice to its brand. Having had it now for a quite awhile, I can see it going the long yards and doing what it does best until we move houses. The microwave is really easy to use and for its price, you cant really complain. The noise is there, however what microwave doesn't have any noise?? Would recommend
This microwave does its job as in heating up cold meals and defrosting frozen meat. Also it has big space inside and easy to clean. At the beginning it was pretty quiet but recently I have found that the noisy has become louder. Other than that this is a pretty good microwave.

very strong microwave
This microwave heats stuff up really fast and is at a 1200W so you have to reduce the cooking time given in instructions (usually for 1000W microwaves). Easy to use and very sturdy and I'm satisfied with it. It has a cooling period for a few seconds after every use though and I'm never sure what that is for and if it will damage my microwave if I switch it off halfway.

Good for price
It has everything I need. It is easy to operate and has a function of cooling down. The space is quite large so you can heat several items at the same time. But sometimes the power is not strong enough and I have to heat the food several times to get it ready. And 7, 8, 9 buttons are not working. Planning to return to kmart.
Microwave sharp brand was very well priced and estetically nice to look at with the stainless steal front door. Its extremely easy to use and very easy to clean. It’s a perfect size and is quiet compared to my old microwave. I will have no hesitation in recommending the product to my family and friends.
Quality microware from a solid brand
We are really very pleased with our new microwave. It was delivered quickly and we began using it the same day.
Had a browse through the easy to understand instruction booklet and had no problem with operating the appliance.
Cooks and heats well and has been used several times daily with no sign of trouble. It's a very handy appliance and we've come to rely on it.
Cooks Fast, but noisy
Probably one of the more annoying microwaves as it makes noise after it finishes. For an extra 30 seconds, it just 'cools down' with a noisy engine.
Apart from that, it actually cooks really fast, so that comes with no complaints. Would not mind this otherwise! Use is easy too.

Can I turn off the unnecessary second beep after cooking? We are finding if very annoying. Also just used timer for 15min and it was done in 5min. Can we adjust the timer? I have used sensor for defrosting and it almost melted my tupperware microwave container which I had to throw out the lid as it is now warped. The heat in the whole microwave just seems too hot after the previous microwave and after reading the reviews it seems it could be a problem. Can we turn it down?
