Excellent quality and simple to use.
We’re not huge microwave users in our house — we don’t need a lot of bells and whistles — just the ability to warm a cup of coffee or defrost from time to time. This was as good as the high dollar microwave we pulled, bolted right into the location, and looks decent. It’s about 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of any microwave we could find locally. Great price, decent features. Only annoying thing is the ‘hey, i’m finished’ bell, which was too loud and too long.
I got it on time and it works great.
I really like this microwave. It’s very plain but also very efficent. I have had ones with all kinds of buttons but this one is easy to use and works very well.
The microwave is good, but the beeper repeats like three times and doesn’t let you push stop till it’s done.
Easy install – worked great out of box – paid big $$ for ge profile which decided to short out its pad. This unit equivalent in many ways and much more affordable.
- Does what I need
- Perfect for our needs.
- Performs well Good price
My old one died mysteriously and sat there taking up space for months. We turned it into tupperware storage for a while. After months of procrastinating we finally found this one on amazon. Yes, the beeping after food is done is a teenie weenie bit annoying, and the clock seems to gain 5-10 minutes every few days, but it’s a nice machine. The buttons and setting are so easy and intuitive i don’t have to explain it my wife or guests. It cooks well and looks nice.
**** 3 year update ****this frigidaire unit was pressed back into service when our kenmore died again with a much more expensive problem. At least the frigidaire has been operating well for 3 years. No problem in that department. The handle is now ready to fall off for good. The spider cracks that were forming from almost the beginning are now extensive around both the top and bottom of the handle. I expect the handle to come off completely in the next month or so, so we’re ordering a new microwave. No, it will not be a frigidaire. Once the handle comes off, we would have to replace the entire door if we wanted to keep this unit. This is because it is not the handle that is shattering, but the door itself.
This microwave has been great. It was easy to install and we have had no problems.
Looks good, cooks quickly and the added features are a bonus. As for the beeps, it isn’t any louder than my old microwave,maybe a little quieter. Only annoyance is having to hit stop after cooking is complete, to keep it from beeping again.
As with any over the counter microwave it is best to have two people to install. I managed to install it myself, by propping up the unit on a box. The unit gives a triple beep when cooking cycle is done. I do not find the beeping objectionable.

The unit gives off the most annoying beeps, 3 of them, when the cooking is done. I’ve already scoured the internet looking for ways to configure those beeps and have determined that it is not possible. But the price is right, and performance is good, it’s just your neighbors also know when you popcorn is done.
The microwave arrived about 4 days after it was promised but the microwave itself is great. Works great and had everything needed for installation.
It does everything it’s supposed to and it looks great.
The pros: it’s a microwave and it matches our range. I assumed by the price and brand it would be high-quality. It does perform as it should, heats evenly, spins food, has a built in hood vent. The cons: very loud latching mechanism. Shutting the door on it sounds like an 82 buick being slammed shut in your kitchen. It is absolutely loud enough to wake others in the house. Another major gripe is the alarm when finished heating. This is the only microwave i’ve ever used that insists on emitting its loud beep even after you open the door to remove food. You can push ‘stop/cancel’ if you wish to end it early but opening the door doesn’t silence it. Additionally, if you set the timer and don’t start it within 5 seconds it reverts back to clock.
I was looking for a microwave for over the stove. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, as this is a house i’m renting that doesn’t have a lot of counter space. It doesn’t have a ton of buttons, but the cooking space is perfect and it works nicely.
Purchased a month ago as replacement for 1989 over-the-range ge model on which the 3 cent ‘stirrer’ finally broke. This frigidaire with less power (1 kw vs 1. 35 kw) is more efficient (i. , faster) and the shortcut buttons are welcome. But here’s what you’ll hate: (1) though the 30′ x 15′ front face exterior dimensions are comparable to the old ge (i. , it fits the old space between the cabinets), the frigidaire is a couple inches larger in the front-to-back dimension, so it juts out past the cabinets just enough to look out of place (tip: measure the depth of your cabinets before purchasing; frigidaire front-to-back exterior dimension is also 15′); (2) the internal lamp is so dim, and the black painted pattern on the window so dark, that it’s hard to see what’s going on in there (e. , microwave oatmeal boiling over??); (3) as others have said, the 3 long beeps announcing the end of any operation is often irritating, but i found (after many attempts) that pressing the stop/cancel button just right will interrupt/cancel the beeping, which leads to. (4) the keypad is pretty non-responsive. You gotta hit those buttons in just the right way; i found slow full fingertip pressure (as if you’re trying to leave a fingerprint) works best; a quick stab at a button does nothing. Anyway, decent basic microwave, but a couple irritating features.
This is a great replacement microwave for my sharp. At first i thought it wouldn’t work but if take your time and review the old verses the new, this unit will work.
