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:
This unit replaced one we had for ten years. The LG model is simple and stable with the turntable inside. The stick free surface makes cleaning a quick swipe of the cloth.

It's a great microwave. Works well. Heats and keeps time well.

I've installed two of these, one in my house and one in my parents'. The model has nice features, but between the two units, the number of mechanical and electrical failures has been ridiculous. The one at my parents' house is now scrap just outside of warranty, the fix too expensive to be worthwhile.

We bought this microwave 3 years ago and it has performed without any problems, since installed.
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.
