Rated 5 out of 5 by epsilonkore Well this was a surprise...
Bought all new LG kitchen and laundry appliances due to the excellent reviews in several leading websites and consumer publications. I have yet to regret it! The stainless metal exteriors are a snap to clean, and each device feels solid, well thought out and constructed. The microwave purchase was a bit of an after thought. My old microwave was the only device from my original home purchase that I actually liked. I hated to see it go, but it was a hideous white that would not fit in at all with the new LG kitchen. So I ordered the largest available at Best Buy simply because the wattage of the LG's was no where near what my old unit was. This unit is rated around 1000 watts where my old one was 1600, so I was concerned about how well it would cook. The thought was quickly vanquished from my mind. After cooking two chickens and some popcorn I could immediately tell that technology has truly advanced from my 13 year old unit! The new features such as a built in convection oven (wow) just kind of spun me around. You can microwave WHILE cooking with convection for crisp AND fast!? I had NO idea this microwave (if you can call it just that) had combined two of my kitchen appliances into one. After using it for some time I can tell you its not quite as good as my toaster over at crisping, but the fact it can thaw, cook, crisp "close" to what my toaster oven does, in HALF the time... its a done deal. Bye toaster oven, hello counter space! Popcorn... my old unit did it great, this one... its just showing off! Throw any size in, the LG detects its size and starts popping. I stand by as it cooks to be sure it doesnt burn, and so far it hasnt. Several different brands (i love my popcorn...) have all come back just right. The only thing I wish was improved... its a small thing, the light bulb on the inside needs to be about twice as bright. I can barely see inside while it cooks. Energy savings all around compared to my old unit, but I will bump the wattage on the interior bulb next time its replaced. (if possible)

Rated 2 out of 5 by sandi very disappointed
Purchased a Washing machine that was fantastic and wanted to continue with the LG brand. Bought a MW/ convection and had problems from the onset. F5 error code, microwave counted down with no microwave activity, the door handle latch turned off the Mw, you name it, Had the guy out twice in the first 2 weeks. after replacing the control panel, dehumidifier switch, door latch it still does not work. Called, set up a 2nd service call, to see if it could be replaced, and the service man called and told me that he could not replace the unit unless he jumped thru hoops and that I should go back to where I purchased it because I would never be happy with this unit. :-(

Rated 1 out of 5 by Maizie Convection does not work
Microwave works fine, but convection has not worked since installed. Thermostat and Control board have both been replaced, and still does not work. Temperature is highly erratic and inconsistent. Very disappointed. Have had previous MW/Convection so it is not user error. It simply does not have accurate temperature control for some reason which cannot be determined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by oldman78 The best microwave we ever had
We are adding LG appliances to our kitchen every time we need them.
This microwave warms, cook, defrost and all in a
simple way with selections for every kind of food you need to cook or warm.
We recommend it as a valuable addition to any kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kathy6 Great features, and looks amazing!
I love this microwave convection oven. I wanted a double oven range but did not like the idea of picking up heavy roast etc. on the lower level of the stove. I have baked with the convection oven and it cooked great, so I have two ovens without heating up the kitchen. I would like the light to be brighter,(can not see the food cooking). Very easy control panel and lots of short cuts. Popcorn feature works great.
