Great Item, missing a Feature!
from Elgin, IL, USA
Comments about LG 1.6 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave - Stainless Steel:
I love this microwave, bought it after my 1998 died. I liked the idea of the warming rack, though don't use as much as hoped. DOWNSIDES: Display is numeric only so no prompts to "turn over" or anything else for that matter. No Express Setting (1/2/3/4 minutes) of previous model. Pizza "Button" : Really and one for melt and soften...ARGH! There are NO instructions for AM/PM setting of clock and most sadly, there is NO TIMER. Seriously, the timer SO important...since there is no delay start option, I can't even time my marinade then put into the microwave to start.....sort of the point of a microwave oven. We checked the manual before we purchased the item in the store, but the item we have, doesn't have the previous mentioned. UPSIDES: Much lighter unit than previous unit. Installation a breeze (with excellent instructions and all hardware options), it's quiet and was a very fair price. Any chance of fix or update?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works and operates great.
Installing the item was a little challenging and you indeed need 2 people to accomplish it. I had a little problem locating the front mounting holes using the diagram but got it in the end. The only thing I don't care for is that when carrying a dish to put in the oven, you can't push a button to open it. You have to set the dish down and pull the handle. Otherwise I haven't found any problems.

This is a great microwave. Heats food items so quick we use it only a short time compared to our other model. Also very quiet. Looks good with our other appliances also. Only item I was worried about is that it does not have a timer but that has turned out to be a non issue as you use your smart phone for the timer and you can leave the kitchen and go to other areas and hear the timer. Works better anyway!

Has a modern look in black and stainless
from Joliet, IL, USA
This unit adds a rich look to my kitchen. It is easy to use no matter what you are using it for. A great deal for the price. There are only two things I would change if possible: There is only one 30W light over the stove top area, which is not bright enough for anything but a night light, and it does not have an independent timer which I was accustomed to. The timer is only for cook time settings. Because of the its size and weight, I recommend hiring someone to install it.
We are delighted!

Our handiman recommended LG products and this microwave when our old one 'died.' He was right!
Great microwave for the price!
from Navarre, FL, USA
It met all of my expectations and then some! It has all of the features anyone needs without the high price tag.
Best looking of all the Micros.

We had two GE over the range products before and were about to get another until we saw the LG product. The features were similar but the design of the LG was far better and the value was right. We bought it!
Easy to use and works great!

The divider shelf is nice plus. Heats food evenly and quickly. Preset features are easy to use. I enjoy defrost features because frequently have to cook on short notice.
Everything you need in a microwave
from West Islip
I thought my old microwave was good. This LG is terrific. When a package meal states heat on Hi for 6 minutes, in 6 minutes the meal is perfect. The inside is easy to clean. I am very pleased with this product.
I like it
from Utah, USA
I have no complaints about this microwave's performance. It looks nice and works easily as a microwave should. My husband, who is very handy and experienced and is a licensed electrician, installed it and that was not easy,(but it was not as bad as the LG dishwasher that he also installed. That one had horrible directions). Directions were not the best for the microwave. He exhausted it to the outside so the fan would be more useful as the old one wasn't.
