What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks Good! I like the fact that this microwave is easy to clean. The overall looks are great. I only have one issue...Why would you put dark grey numbers and letters on a black background? It's very difficult to see anything on the keypad even in normal lighting conditions. I would hope that LG could come out with a self stick overlay in white lettering. I own a lot of LG products with no issues or concerns and would like to see LG remedy this problem. Other than that the microwave does exactly what it's supposed to.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Panel Visibility Have had this microwave since August 2015. I purchased it from Amazon, sight unseen basing my decision on other LG appliances I own and LG's reputation. It cooks well and has some convenient features but the control panel is the most difficult and bothersome feature of this product. The panel itself is dark and the letters are difficult to see unless a light is shining directly on it or I'm using it in daylight. Night use poses a problem even with lights on in the kitchen. Other than the numbers the controls are too small for large fingers to easily push and the words almost fade into the black background. When you re-design this product please consider i;uminating the words in some way and making the touch controls larger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot to like about this Microwave Very high capacity for the overall size. Really like the look of the product. It could use a lighted keypad and the finger prints are hard to keep off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product, good price and clean lines I'm very pleased with the functions: heats in less time than my previous microwaves, the thaw feature works very well. I love the rounded interior which gives more room for different size bakeware and makes cleaning easier. It's smaller than my other on the outside but inside is actually larger. Looks nice on the counter My only change would be the volume of the signal at the end, it's a little loud, but that may a personal thing. I do like that it signals again about a minute later so you don't forget you have something that's ready. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

How much clearance does this microwave need if inside a cabinet? Also, is it rounded on the outside back as well as the inside?

Asked by: Pennyd
My cabinet had no side clearance for this microwave. The vents are on the lefthand side and rear of the unit. I think you need to have the vent cleared. It probably will work fine as it has an automatic overheating cut off switch. I cut a large hole in my cabinet for the vent.

Interior Lighting

Some microwaves do not have interior lights, some have them but don't come on when only the door is opened and others have lights that come on when the door opens and when in operation. Being this is Nov 2014, are the new models equipped with LED lighting or incandescent light bulbs? Are all models made using the light feature that turns on when opening the door and when in operation? Also, it would benefit buyers to list the dimensions of the LED display or how large the numbers will display and the color of the display as well as how large the touch panel numbers are as many users have complained the display does not appear good unless the user stoops down to counter top level and views the display perpendicular to the panel as well as the number pad.
Asked by: Garth
The interior light comes on when the microwave is operating allowing you to see while its cooking and when the door is open.

single button for one minute

concerning the LG LCRT1513SW Countertop Microwave Oven, 1100-watt, White, can you push the #1 button once and then will the microwave cook for one minute? I miss microwaves that have a button that states "one minute". Should be standard. I use this button many times a day
Asked by: pippirate
This model has a 30 second timer and if you press it again it will go up 30 seconds for a minute. I like that I have a choice of 30 second intervals.

What are the power levels in the defrost modes of this microve

LCRT513ST, 2 defrost modes, Auto Defrost and Quick Defrost, 1100 watts @ 10 settings = 110 watt increase from 1 to 10
Asked by: Gehrmo
Hi Gehrmo. The only microwave power level table shown in the owner's manual for the LG 1.5 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave Oven with EasyClean™, Model # LCRT1513ST is that for the 10 power levels for cooking. This microwave has 3 Auto Defrost preset in the oven. The three different defrosting levels provided are dEF1. MEAT, dEF2. POULTRY, dEF3. FISH. For added convenience, the Auto Defrost includes a built-in beep mechanism that reminds you to check, turn over, separate, or rearrange to get the best defrost results. Regrettably the defrosting levels are not given as wattage levels, but there is an Auto Defrost Table for which level to use for specific food groups. There is also a Quick Defrost feature that should be used only when you defrost 1.0 lbs of frozen ground meat,fish and poultry...^IFV
