What People Are Saying

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does Everything I Expected and More Bought to replace a failed Microwave Combi Oven (from another manufacturer) the MJ3281BCS is attractively priced and very well featured. It has comfortably exceeded my expectations and does a great job as a microwave, oven and grill - an excellent combination of specification, performance and price. Highly recommended!!! 02 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by I would recommend this product Excellent customer service. Only fault I can find with this combi/micro is the fact that the cookbook is pretty useless for everyday cooking, looked at some of the recipes and decided no use to me, so it has gone in my kitchen drawer, probably never to come out again. I hope LG listens to the comments and takes heed. I'll watch their site for any info on the above. One more thing I do wish they had made the "stop" "start" easier to read. 27 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by What to expect from a microwave? Great design, better backside as the others have a huge backside and sometimes does not fit properly in the kitchen. Very noisier when the microwave it's on. The oven it's great and low noise. Happy overall. Well LG could improve the dial functionality as it's exactly the same as another cheap brand so let's put the technical engeniers on ghia and deliver a great and innovative, cost efficient product, it's like buying a Maserati with a Ford engine!!!!!! 23 December 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good all round microwave. Got this for a replacement for a Panasonic which lasted all of 3 days, so have not used all the features yet. However, it is well-made, looks good, and performs very well indeed with the features we have used. Have not tried combination cooking in the microwave yet, but will give it a go soon. I would recommend the machine to others. 16 December 2015
