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.

Dead in less than 2 years
from Austin, TX
Comments about LG LMV1813SB Black Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
We had a problem with this microwave from the beginning. The unit we've got was poorly assembled and was making an annoying noises. So it had to be fixed only a couple of weeks after it was installed. After that microwave worked OK for a few months and then it just died. The control board was replaced multiple times. After the last fixed microwave worked for another year and then it died again. Since waranty is already expired we are going to replace it and never buy LG product again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not too bad
from Massachusetts, USA
This microwave has good power. It works without problems. I don't have any need for a shelf in a microwave. I like the different speeds for the vent with low, high, and turbo. Also the lights underneath are helpful. My husband installed it and said it was extremely easy to do.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from San Clemente, CA
Microwave has just enough of what I need. Nice style, easy to keep stainless clean. Easy to clean. Like the rack for double cook use.
Cooks evenly and is very quiet
By 6 Buckeyes
from Worthington, OH, USA
I purchased my OTR microwave in 9/13. This OTR microwave is very quiet. Cooks food thoroughly and evenly. The instrument cluster makes for easy choices. The only draw-back is that the panel require multiple selections for the "reheat" button. You have to look at the reminder sticker on the inside of the door to figure out what number to select. Another plus,is the vent is hidden and pointed upward and works very well. Also comes with a kitchen timer and a bright under mount light that illuminates the cooking surface of your stove below.
Great value for the price
from Broadview Heights, OH, USA
90+% of microwave use is for warming and popcorn. This unit is easy to use for the other 10% of the time and is getting more and more use for things besides the usual.
why review there just going to reject it
this product has big flaws.lmv1813st it worked 17 days and quite.
from Pittsburgh, PA, USA
I have a small kitchen and the turbo fan feature on this microwave is great. It clears out steam and odors fast. I also like the speed of heating. It heats really fast and evenly. The sleek look makes my kitchen look more updated. This is my first LG product -I'll be buying more!!!!
Best on the market
from Webster, MA, USA
I have had other microwaves but nothing compare to this LG. For the price it was more than I could imagine. The ease of use, the setting options are all one could want. LG keep up the great work with your innovative products that are a great value for the money.
Has all the features I wanted and more.
from Conroe, TX, USA
It looks nice and has many great features. Light is brighter than other brands and fan is also stronger than other brands I have purchased.
from Green Bay, WI, USA
Tons of features and a removable rack is really convenient.
