What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of features I've had this microwave for about a month and so far it's worked great. The door is a lot quieter than my last one and I think it's a little quieter running also. Even though it's a different brand than my range it still looks good with it. Overall I'm happy with the choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features looks sharp ! I just renovated kitchen and added brand new appliances. My LG bottom freezer refrigerator is quite a change from my side by side that I’ve had for years! Still getting used to it but love the quality and the functionality of this refrigerator!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't judge a book by it's cover! We purchased this microwave last weekend. We were distracted by the beauty and the feel of the solid door (when opening/shutting). We also purchased the gas stove in the same store display so the presentation is beautiful. Unfortunately, in our thrall we failed to inquire about wattage and learned at home that it's just 950 watts. We had 1200 watts in our last microwave. Seems like the horsepower is a little short for such a high end device???

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to read information panel The unit was installed approximately 5 weeks ago. I am still trying to understand how to operate it. There is definitely much to learn and remember. Certainly not as user friendly as our GE Advantium 120. It does cook very well once I have set it correctly.

Can the lights be changed to LED?

Asked by: Martpav
If you know what the equivalent LED light is for the candelabra-base 50-watt bulbs used in the LG STUDIO - 1.7 cu. ft. Over-the-Range Convection Microwave Oven, Model # LSMC3098BD and they can fit into the sockets, then you can replace them...^IFV
