Sharp R-842SLM review

  (Rating Hidden)

Clad in black and silver with well-designed controls and a clear digital display, the Sharp R-842SLM combination microwave really looks the part. But how good is this microwave at heating and defrosting food? Our full review will tell you everything...

Great oven


Have only used it for 2 weeks but the oven function is great, and work just as good as conventional oven. The metal plate is much better than the standard glass ones which can break easily.

Good machine


we had a sharp one for quite a few years which eventually gave up the ghost and so we purchased a different make which only lasted 10 months and was no good at cooking pizza. Sharp came to the rescue you can't go wrong.

Sharp R-842SLM


Capacity just right for our needs. Looks good Easy to clean Seems to cook well although not tried everything yet

Has a 1 min more button, but no less button Prefer digital press cooking time to turning a dial, but works ok. Baked potato option is microwave only. Last Sharp did it on micro/grill for crisper skin.

Useful addition


Pleased with purchase so far. Microwave - easy to use. Convection oven works well although still experimenting with times etc. Not used grill. Overall I think this will be a very useful addition and money saving as for two people it will be much...
