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.

Comments about LG Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
I bought this microwave almost 2 yrs ago and it stopped working 4 times. It was a good thing I bought the extended warranty for 3 yrs. They gave me my money back to buy a new one. It won't be an LG.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've owned this microwave for more than a year now. It has some very useful features that we use regularly. Sensor reheat, defrost, popcorn etc. Works perfectly. No complaints.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Not Good, expect better
from Leesburg, GA, United States
The door on this unit was poorly designed and breaks easily. A quality manufacturing company would provide a door that does not break with normal use. 3rd door in 31 months
bought microwave 2 years ago, stopped working, very poor quality
from Orange, CA, United States
Easy to use, variety of great sensor features, roomy interior, low sound level, who could ask for anything more!
Great functioning microwave!
from Standish, ME, United States
I researched microwaves that had the functions of my 12 year old appliance that eventually broke. This product was affordable, the features were perfect for what I needed and it looks great! The only downside is that you need to press buttons a bit harder.

At first was overwhelmed with the options already set up in the program for this micro, but after just a couple of weeks it is easy to use. The style is so nice and is the final piece to my complete LG kitchen.
Nice looking, good quality, works great! meets my needs
my wife loves this microwave
from Anaheim, CA
I am very happy that I purchased this particular microwave. It looks great, has all the features I was looking for and my wife is happy with this model. She says she really likes the one touch reheat preset function. For example, when she reheats pancakes she says they are not soggy or hard. I found my microwave at best buy for a great price.
from Suwanee, GA 30024, USA
Love this microwave. Love how quickly food cooks, the power save button, and all of the features. Downside no express cook button, but you don't have to press time start then numbers then start. Just punch in the numbers and press start. Easy to use and clean!
