What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design and features The LG NeoChef 9 cu ft microwave is just as advertised and fits our needs and more. Like the clean lines of the design inside and out. The recessed handle on the side of the door is so easy to use. The turntable is more stable so no more tipping of the glass tray. The control panel simple. This is our second LG appliance and we are so happy with the quality that we will replace other appliances with LG as needed. Would recommend this LG NeoChef!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't keep it started, keeps shutting off If you want to hold your finger on the start key the entire cook time, then do it. Most people, are too busy to do that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great little microwave! We have always had monster size microwaves. When I was getting this one I wondered why are we getting the monster ones? We never have anything that big in it. So this one I took a chance on after the last unnamed one toasted itself. This one has a new design philosophy which I like. It has melodies it sings when things are done and it has three ways to adjust the cook time and it's really cool to have a choice like that, one is a slide device like swiping a phone. The microwave does a good job at heating our food or cooking frozen stuff. I highly recommend it, especially if you've paid for other microwaves that just suddenly died after a couple years. I won't buy them anymore. I will give LG Electronics more chances in the future. Their stuff is very 5th Element. I wish they were more so.

How do I change the power level? I keep pushing the actual word, "power level", and nothing happens.

Asked by: Twhiz
When not using the auto cooking functions, the cooking time and power level are set manually. 1 Open the oven door. Press Stop/Clear 2 Press Cook Time once. 3 Press + or – until the desired cooking time appears in the display. 4 Press Power Level once, P-HI appears in the display. (note) P-HI indicates that the power level is at 100%. 5 Press – to decrease the power level in 10-percent increments, if desired. 6 Close the oven door. Press START. (note) When cooking is complete, a chime sounds and "End" appears in the display window. "End" remains in the display and the chime repeats every minute until the door is opened, or any button is pressed. ^CP

Hello, Does the 18.7 width include the trim ring so we'd be able to cut 1/4" off each end of the trim kit? Our cabinet shelf will be 18" wide, so we need it to fit the 18" width.

Asked by: CMAL
The 18.74" width is the measurement from side to side on the LG 0.9 cu. ft. NeoChef™ Countertop Microwave with Smart Inverter and EasyClean®, Model # LMC0975ST. LG does not offer a trim kit that is compatible with this model...^IFV
