Rated 4 out of 5 by LoomisShred Good Microwave
Nice attractive microwave. Works well. The control pad is a bit hard to see as others have noted. Our old microwave died and we had a limited choice of store models for replacement. This was the largest one they had in the store (our old one was 2.1 cf). Actually cost more than the one we replaced so we had to pony up a few extra bucks over the warranty amount to get it.
Easy to use, the features are typical for a microwave. The cabinet vibrates a bit. Holding the side with your hand can stop the vibration so I may need to tighten some screws (don't want to void the warranty though). All in all, it's a nice microwave that will hopefully last longer than our old one did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by nanaboo Difficult to unpack, Controls hard to see
Needed immediate replacement due to lightning strike. Seemed closest to the GE which was zapped. Nearly returned item before I finished unpacking. The film covering took 3 hours to remove, and still shreds remain. The controls are not lit, so I use a flashlight to see. Settings are complicated, requiring multiple references to the manual. Operation functioning is good. Defrost works well. Food does not become tough. Good power for liquids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FireproofWoman Simple to use
The keyboard and features for the most part are self explanatory and intuitive. I am glad all you have to do for most uses is just hit the number buttons for the amount of seconds you want your food to cook and press start. Simple. The instant-on button is really handy, too. I love just hitting it once or twice and not even having to push "start." It has good power for fast heat-ups. If you want a basic, unconfusing oven, this is it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ma'am works great
pros heats and cooks great very quiet. easy to use i like the feature of being able to control the lowered max to minimum heat level.
cons- the instructions upon taking off the plastic film were not clear that the entire oven was covered and needed to be completely removed. also why would you put the screws on after the plastic was placed cannot remove it .

Rated 4 out of 5 by Review022013 intuitve panel, good design
This microwave is sleek looking with an intuitive panel. A backlit panel would be preferred in order to easily see the features. Otherwise this oven is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CincyGal A POWERFUL BEAUTY
This Stainless Steel LG Microwave is beautiful as well as very powerful and easy to use. The ceramic interior is very easy to clean and the exterior can be cleaned with just a wipe. It is very sturdy and well made. I am now considering other LG major appliances for my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best ever
I've owned 8 microwaves over the years , this is the best. The power is great . Easy controls. But the best yet ,it's so easy to keep clean . The inside corners are rounded, no crevices to trap food.. I love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EVGMB You won't go wrong buying this microwave
I bought this microwave about 2 months ago. It has several good features, including variable power settings. I do not have a problem seeing the numbers on the keypad, as others have noted. Sometimes you have to search for a function on the keypad (such as the kitchen timer). Once you get used to the keypad, there is no problem. The only issue is with the length of the electrical cord. It is VERY short. The owners manual has a silly disclaimer about 'reducing risks from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord' -- when did a power cord ever drag on the ground??? It also recommends having 'a qualified electrician install an outlet near the appliance'.... That would cost about as much as the microwave itself. As also recommended, I purchased an extension cord with the same electrical rating (meaning the amps) as the microwave and so far, so good. (They don't tell you that electrical rating means amps).
