What People Are Saying

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Popcorn and Fish We were in the market for an Over the Range Microwave/Convection as ours was 25 years plus in age. It still functioned but we could barely see the display. We selected LG because Costco offered a free install and delivery. It is incredible that this unit cooks perfect popcorn everytime without a burnt kernel. It also cooks perfect Salmon and other fish. We haven't used the convection part yet but we are sure that the results will be great. The ventilation fan has 5 speeds so it's a great range hood and it has 2 filters that are very easy to remove and clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Product I would have given this microwave 5 stars, but gave it 4 stars only because the display is not back-lit which makes it difficult to read in the absence of an outside light source. Other than that, it appears to be an excellent microwave. It has many nice features such as "sensor cook", a 5 speed fan, a switch to turn the turn-table on or off, convection, "sensor reheat", and auto cook options. Using the "sensor" options, you don't need to worry about entering a time to cook the food. The microwave just does it automatically. The microwave was delivered with some physical damage on it's back side. Unfortunately. I was not at home when it was delivered, but they just left it on my front porch. When I opened up the package 2 days later, I saw the physical damage and reported it to the place where I purchased it from. Because the microwave appeared to operate normally, and the place of purchase offered me an extended 10yr warranty at no cost, I decided to keep it. Once installed, you can't see the damage in the back at all. The microwave's black, stainless steel finish is highly aesthetic and the unit looks great. So far, the unit works great and I'm happy with it. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new microwave. I would also suggest to LG to include a back light for the display that can be turned on or off. With a back light, this microwave gets 5 stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible microwave Was not functional. After using fan, the inside of the microwave would drip grease for days. Four service calls, each tech said they'd never seen anything like it. LG said it environmental.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can only cook in 10 second increments. Its a beautiful microwave oven but its useless and terribly inconvenient. You cannot set a cook time of anything unless it is in 10 second increments. I reread the book over and over looking for how to set it to cook for 25 seconds and could not find anything. Finally, I called in to support and there is no function to set the seconds in the cook time other than in 10 second increments. This is not mentioned in any of the information provided by LG Electronics in any Specs for the product. But of course support says it is working as expected so its not broken. Considering I used my microwaves for cooking by exact times since the beginning of microwaves. And my last convection oven (another brand) was capable of it with no key pad, I never fathomed that one would not have adjustable seconds. I would seriously just rather have a regular microwave that is usable.

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
