An "all in one" product
This is the second LCSP1110ST I have purchased in the past three years. The first was a Sears brand labelled one (which the buyer of my house purchased fro me),the second was an LG label. Product has been upgraded with additional features including an easy clean interior. We use this for traditional microwave cooking and re-heating which it does with very good results but the mini oven is a real useful feature. It bakes pizza perfectly with the user selected choices. Not just good results, but Excellent results with DiGiorno frozen pizza (12"). The crust comes out perfect every time. Just set the cooking time and come back in 14min to a perfect pizza. Oven is perfect for cookies, garlic bread, etc., anything under 2" high. We avoid using our convection oven in favor of this unique product whenever possible.

Overall rating of good, unique pizza oven feature
Overall the 1000 watt is great, just need to microwave a bit longer since most food products provide instructions for 1100 watt microwaves. But very satisfied with microwave. Pizza oven is good and easy to use instructions with quick button temperature and cook time. But food products don't obtain the crispness as with a regular oven and while the pizza oven comes with a baking pan, it would have been nice if the instructions provides FAQ like if its ok to use foil or parch paper in the baking pan for quick clean up.

excellent addition to a modern lifestyle
I love it. It's easy to use with all of the presets and controls we have all come to expect from a microwave. Pick your power, your cook time, add or subtract 10, 20, 30 seconds with a touch of a button, warm, defrost, popcorn, etc, it's all there but beyond that I've made pizza, popper type snacks, cookies, garlic bread, bagels, etc in the oven with no preheating and treated this as if it were a second oven, because it is. The first time I used it for pizza I really wanted to check it as it cooked as I thought it would burn it because of the additional couple of minutes -beyond the cooking instructions on the pizza- of cooking time on the presets for the oven -I'm guessing it's because there is no preheating and it starts cooking from a zero temp- but it literally cooked the pizza perfectly. It actually made me laugh because it worked so well in a world where we expect things not to live up to the hype.
Plenty of power -1000 watts- in the microwave without it taking up a countertop -as the front to back length is less than most microwave housings, without the interior/cooking space being any less than any microwave at this wattage level-
It's stainless with chip proof grey accents -not black sides like in the picture- with a deep grey interior to the microwave, a push button door release and electronic door lock and the oven has a non stick cooking pan that you simply pick up to remove/clean/fill with whatever you are cooking.
There are tons of options for cooking everything and the out of the box ease of use is perfect. The fan that cools down the oven isn't loud at all and only takes a couple minutes to do its thing and the microwave is also relatively quiet compared to most microwaves.
The height is a bit more than a typical countertop microwave but it has an oven in it too and still leaves at least 4 inches open under the upper cabinets without blocking the under cabinet lighting.
It could use rubber feet to keep it in place better but nothing those little round cabinet door pads didn't fix in a couple seconds.
