 Sharp R-530EW Microwave Ratings
Price Per
Cu. Ft.
 The Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) per cubic foot of microwave area is $90. This is less expensive than average and is priced in the bottom 6% of new microwaves.
Premium Features Considering only those functions and capabilities that really make a difference, this microwave has an average number of premium features when compared with other new microwave designs.
Power This Sharp microwave oven can generate up to 1200 watts of cooking energy. This is more powerful than average with a higher level of heating watts.
Magnetron Warranty The magnetron warranty is good for 4 years. Compared to other manufacturers, this microwave has a magnetron limited warranty with about average duration.
User Ratings Rated 4 of 5 stars by 48 users from retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Sears, and others. Compared to other user reviews of new microwaves, this appliance is rated about average.
Bake / Roast Standard microwave without convection heating. You can't brown, bake, or roast dishes and meats like a regular oven.
Grill / Broil Standard microwave without a grilling or broiling element. You can't grill or broil meats such as steaks, hamburgers, or chicken wings.
Staged Cooking Can be programmed with a series of power levels and heating times that you perform frequently. Allows you to automatically cook your favorite dishes without constant monitoring so you can perform other tasks.
Sensor Cooking Uses sensors to monitor humidity levels and automatically determines the appropriate power and time required to cook, reheat, or defrost selected foods.
Even Cooking Does not use special technology to help ensure that dishes are cooked evenly. Most standard microwaves do an adequate job, especially at higher power settings. Moving dishes or stirring periodically is helpful.
Keep Warm Dishes can be automatically kept warm after they are done cooking. A preprogrammed setting employs low-power microwaves or sometimes uses a heat lamp to keep foods warm.
Non-Stick Interior Does not have a special non-stick interior that makes clean-up easier. Splattered foods or drinks take a little more effort to wipe off, especially if you let them dry and harden for a period of time.
Turntable Turntable is large enough to rotate a standard 9 x 13 inch baking dish. This is a convenient feature if you frequently cook larger dishes for your family or entertaining.
Stainless Steel The exterior is not made of stainless steel. While stainless is popular in kitchen appliances, black and white are elegant, timeless colors.
Size Above average capacity with 2 cu. ft. of interior space. More room may be important if you have three or more people in your household, or you like to quickly heat larger dishes for parties and entertaining.
