Microwave Strengths and Weaknesses
Cooking BEST - Convection microwave that can bake, grill, and operate as a conventional microwave. Convection baking produces browned, crisped foods more quickly and evenly. Also employs a grilling mode that allows you to broil or grill meats and toast foods.
Cost POOR - Each cubic foot of internal microwave oven capacity costs $322. This price level is 193% higher than the average new countertop microwave. Ranks in the bottom 15% of the countertop microwave class with POOR affordability.  
Power FAIR - Maximum cooking power of 900 watts is 10% lower than the average new microwave oven. Ranks in the bottom 10% of new microwaves for FAIR power generation. Will generally take longer times to cook dishes and heat foods or beverages.  
Sensors GOOD - No automatic cooking sensors that can detect steam emitted from hot foods and drinks. Power levels and cooking times must be preselected by the user. Sensor cooking is available on about 60% of new microwaves produced today.  
Features BEST - This Sharp microwave has 4 of the following special features that can make a difference - Staged Cooking: Yes | Even Cooking Tech: Yes | Keep Warm: Yes | Non-Stick Interior: Yes | Halogen Heat: No | Speed Cook: No.
Warranty BETTER - Sharp provides a 5 year limited warranty on the magnetron, one of the primary components in a microwave. This warranty length is significantly longer than the standard one-year warranty found on about 50% of new microwaves.
