Simple to use; don't need to read the manual to operate the mircowave. The pre-set buttons and display are very easy to understand and use.

I bought this because I needed a ventilation hood that would recirculate into the house with a clean exhaust. Everyone said "I'm perfectly happy with a recirculating hood! This will be fine!" Well, it isn't. Here are my beefs about the hood function: 1. It's noisy, with an irritating high-pitched whine; 2. Smoke and grease from the front burners of the stove go up the front of the microhood and aren't captured at all; 3. Smoke and grease that ARE captured are exhausted out the top of the unit, where they leave greasy marks on the front of the cabinets above. (This microwave, like most, is an inch or two deeper than the surrounding cabinets. Therefore, the top-venting exhaust runs along the face of the cabinet doors above.) I had looked at another combination microwave/hood that vented its exhaust out the front instead of out the top. I wish I'd gone with that one. More to the point, I wish I'd figured out a way to ventilate to the outside world, where I'd wanted to send the exhaust in the first place. And yes, all the filters are in place. The microwave functions themselves are awesomely good. As another reviewer noted, the keypad can be a bit stiff and the sweet spot for each button is small, but that's only a minor quibble. The programming functions and the power are great. It's neat to be able to microwave on racks. I haven't explored half the possibilities but I can see that this microwave, like my home computer, has a lot of features that I'll love. So: great microwave, but poor range hood. Given that the range hood was more important to me, I probably wouldn't buy it again. In fairness I'll note that my husband, who is not nearly as fussy about odors and grease as I am, does not share my reservations.

Solidly built but noisy fan
from Charlotte, NC
This is super hot compared to my last one. Foods heat evenly. I don't like having to pick a product, i.e., pizza for reheating. I'd rather have a number range. I was sold on this model because of the noise rating - on low, it is loud. I replaced my outside vented jenn-air with LG range. The venting on the micro does not clear odors. I open windows and run ceiling fans - problematic come winter.
Very Good Unit
from Windsor, CA
Bought this unit to go over and match an LG range. Works great and it is quiet. Would like to be able to turn off turntable. (Maybe you can, but we have not figured out how)
from Newington, CT, USA
I actually thought that it wasn't working when I hit the Start button! It's that quiet! But don't let that fool you, this microwave is solid as the stainless it was made with. Has every type of setting that you would ever need and it cooks EVENLY, no cold spots. Another solid performer from the LG line!
LMV1813ST Over the Range Microwave
One of the nicest features is the quiet while it's cooking. It's possible to carry on a normal conversation, or listen to the television while cooking in the microwave. The fan is pretty noisy, though. This is a sturdy feeling appliance, not tinny feeling like some of the others I looked at. Has some features that I haven't used, but might be nice to have, such as being able to turn the turntable off and on. Good value for a nice looking, sturdy over the range appliance.
It's a Microwave Oven
from Schaumburg, IL, USA
I hadn't bought a microwave in a long time. I've only had this one for about a week. Lot's of control. Seems to cook evenly. Little bells and whistles like the exhaust fan and night light. Plus it looks great in my kitchen sitting over my LG stove.
By Down n' Out in MV
from Montgomery Village, Md.
I loved this microwave when I purchased it. After ten months of use, the microwave would run but no heat. This happened once on that month. It was running fine until the 12th month. The timer and electronics were functioning, but no heat, and the warranty ran out. So now I have this appliance above my stove (also an LG) for looks until I figure out what to do.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Two repairs in two years
from Farmington, MI, USA
We like the unit very much but have had to have the LG technician out twice. On the plus side, LG did the second repair at no charge even out of warranty.
First time Appliance Buyer
from Anderson, IN
I am a first time home owner and therefore a first time purchaser of appliances. Having an accounting degree and working in the business world has molded me into the type of person that researches everything to the "nth degree". I did so prior to his purchase and must say that I could not be happier with this LG Microwave. The look coupled with the functionality and space in the microwave make it a great buy. Highly recommend.
Another LG Product a cut above the rest.
from Carmel, CA
Purchased this over the range microwave a few month ago. It is a beautiful addition to my other LG stainless appliances. Works great, very quiet and has great power. Very bright under unit lighting for working at my stove. Features easy to use. I highly recommend this product.
