Will never buy sharp ever again until they start using parts that last more then a few years. Inferior parts means loss of confidence in your products
Convection works great fpr roasting chicken, microwave is good.
In the 5 years I used it the turntable has played up 2 times in the last 2 years. First time it cost me over $200 to fix and second time I couldn't be bothered to fix it. I had a top of the range sharp convection microwave over that lasted me from 1990 to 2004. But this model only lasted me 5 years because sharp is now using inferior parts and making them outside Japan. The latest model R990kw is made in Thailand. Sharp pickup your act won't be buying sharp ever again.

nice but unusual high fire danger for a microwave.
So if you have children or a cat or if you are a bit forgetting sometimes better don't buy it.
cooks well, very handy when cooking Roast chicken etc, even pizza, pies.
Get's REALLY hot on the outside, so hot that you must not put any paper, plastic or material (eg a tea towel) on the top, it will burn.
