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.

The product has many options for microwaving!

Comments about LG Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave Oven:
The unit is very nice looking and has many options for cooking, warming and defrosting. The programs installed pretty much take the guess work out of the timing. I am very much satisfied and my guests have remarked, the LG unit would be their next microwave purchased in the very near future. The price, installation, appeal and ease of useage has been far more than expected. Very satisfied!!!!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love my new LG Microwave. It was easy to install ourselves over the range with the templates they provide.
from town of menasha, wi
my wife and i love our new LG microwave! the ease of use with the various preset buttons is levels above what we had before we upgraded to this. the ease of installation is another BIG plus. i would have thought this would cost more than what it did, but am thankful it didn't.
Great addition to my home

Exactly the microwave we wanted!
from Daytona Beach, FL, USA
Needed to replace a 10 year old Goldstar that was a great unit, found out Goldstar became LG, bought the LG, fits perfectly over the range where the Goldstar was, does everything we wanted in a microwave, WE LOVE IT!!
Sensor cooking is spot on.
from South Boardman, MI 49680, USA
We have had this microwave for a few months now, and it seems well built and the sensor cooking feature is great. Clean up is easy inside and out. We think it's a great product for the price.
Love the features
from Norcross, GA
This microwave has this "sensor" feature. So for something like "dinner plate" or "pizza" you just put the food in, find the corresponding number and let it go. No programming of minutes or power level or anything. Every time I've used it it's warmed the food all the way through and it comes out perfect. Thanks LG!
Quiet and easy to use

I love the quick guide just inside the door at the top and the ez-on button which zaps 30 seconds and more!
Great features for a good price

I had researched on Consumer Reports and other consumer reviews for this microwave and decided to buy it. It has great features and the fan works quietly, A great product for the price.
