Didn't Your Mother Teach You to Avoid Sharp Objects?


In my experience bigger microwave ovens tend to be more powerful and cook faster. The Sharp R-530BS is close to the largest microwave I've ever seen so I was looking forward to incredibly fast cook times. Unfortunately I was bound for disappointment. ...

touchpad controls easy to press

cooks slowly and unevenly, big, hard to see inside

big fast cooking requires frequent cleaning


Some of the features we liked about this microwave above others were:

ease of use features, power (wattage)

light bulb change requires factory service, short power cord, power(wattage)

I used to think microwaves were just for heating things up...


This Sharp 530 Carousel microwave is wonderful. It is smart, it has sensors, and walks you through each step. My mom wanted to reheat a cup of coffee. She is not into high tech things at all. She pressed the beverage center button and it asked her...

Dining Room Must


With five teenagers coming home at all different times, this product has enabled me to serve up hot meals in a matter of minutes. In the time it takes them to take off their coats, I can have their meals ready and on the table.

Large capacity--easy clean up

Good Value


We purchased our Sharp R-530C a few months ago after our old (10 years) Sharp Carousel died. We decided to buy a Sharp microwave again because of the good reliability of our previous one. This one is bigger (1100 watts) than our previous one because...

This was one of my best purchases ever


My old microwave just dropped dead one day, and I was a really unhappy camper. I envisioned a lot of shopping around to try to find what I wanted at a good price. Well, I really lucked out. First of all I was sure that I wanted to buy another Sharp...

Great product with lots of options


After 21 years, my old Sharp Carousel microwave gave up the ghost, so I began searching for a replacement. The man at the first appliance shop I visited sang the praises of Sharp, and the old machine had done a pretty fair job, so I decided on the...
