SHARP SOLO MICROWAVE: MODEL R-372M 900W – 25L

5/5
This microwave is ‘plug and play’; the only requirement is to make sure that you install it on the work top with adequate space around it for circulation of air so that it does not over heat. Setting the clock was simple and the digital display is clear and bright. It has a decent size oven that can accommodate a decent size dinner plate with a little more space if needed. There are 10 power levels the highest being 900W and going down to 10%. This is fantastic for cooking specific recipes as ingredients that are high in fat or sugar will burn at higher percentages. The 0P (%) will operate the fan with no power, this feature is used to remove strong odours within. Selecting the cooking time can be done in two ways; either by using the 10min; 1min and 10sec buttons, to use these first a power level needs to be selected. Or by pressing the start button which gives 1 minute and by repeating this goes up by a minute a time, at the default of 100P. There are several foods on the auto menu function that can be used with just a push of a button; taking most of the guessing out of the cooking. The baked potato function is fantastic, I have used it several times and the potatoes were nicely cooked with no hard patches (I even forgot to turn them!). I can see these been used regularly. Defrosting can be done either manually where you select a time period and power level – see the manual for further information that is required. Or you can use the weight of the food to determine how long it will need to defrost. The food may require stirring at regular intervals to have it heated evenly. Watch this as I have found there are times when the time and power setting needs to be adjusted and the food has started to cook when it has not defrosted properly. Having a sequence cooking function is something that is very useful, especially when cooking ready meals that are frozen. Being able to defrost then cook the meal gives a better heating of the meal and found that it does not dry the edges of the meal as much as cooking it at one level. The kitchen timer is amazing for using when cooking something on the stovetop or in the oven; I bake a lot and this has been a lifesaver as I now have a reminder; plus with it being on the microwave I do not need to hunt for the small kitchen timer. The function that I really found amazing is the child lock function. This is something that will be used when little ones are around to avoid accidents. The only downside I have experienced is that with cooking it does have a buildup of moisture and can get wet. I just wipe the oven after cooking so that it does not form a puddle under the turntable.

Hi

5/5
I have just got one of these from you and I am very happy with it. It is easy to use a bit bigger than my old panasonic one. The only thing i find not good is sometimes you have to push the pads a few times for it to work. other than that , I am very happy with this product.

Sharp R372KM 25l Microwave review

4/5
This microwave is very stylish and upto date with the touchscreen front. The amount of different options you have available is also a great bonus. Having things automaticlly on there eg cooking a jacket potatoe and defrosting a chicken is a brilliant idea. All you need to do is have a quick glance at the manual to check the settings and away you go. The size of it has its pro's and con's. Great as you have a large amount inside to put your items in however this then means the size of the machine itself is huge. It doesnt fit on my shelf and so now takes up half of my worktop space. I would recommend buying this as it is a good quality product but only if you have a large kitchen.

It Was a Sharp buy!

5/5
Deliberated long & hard and decided on this. It's a replacement for our previous Sharp model which lasted 26 years. That's pretty reliable! Slightly smaller at 25Ltr. but we can still use or oval dinner plates with space to spare. Looks Good & Works well.

Good product, glad I brought this. I was looking for a big plate inside and it has the same. It's slightly bigger than the normal microwaves and it's also 900 watts which is a plus.

This Microwave is easy to use and very smart looking! It has a lot of features, including pizza, popcorn, re-heat tea & coffee, frozen vegetables, dinner plate and jacket potato, which makes everything so much easier! I absolutely love this microwave at 900W its very powerful! My only issue would be the size of this microwave, it is very large which is not great if you have a small kitchen but its a comprimise I'm willing to take for all the features this comes with. Over all a good 9/10 from me!
