I've actually come to write my review about this LG microwave as mines has just broke! I'll try not to be too harsh on it but the fact remains it has broke after 16 months. I got it for £70 to replace one that I inherited from my parents which in reliably informed was as old as me. (27 years)
The LG looks the part in my kitchen. Much more stylish than the brown one it replaced, it also looks and feels more expensive than the £40 options that are available from the supermarkets. It has some pre-programmed options that I have never actually used or read up on (who does) as well as a variable power setting, up to 1000W, which in my opinion is industrial strength! 1000W really does make the soup bubble and leave a cleaning job so down to seven or eight hundred is good enough for me.
Digital display and timer all make this a painless cooking experience...until now. The door is strong and has taken a lot of slamming closed without problems.
Today however, I turned it on as usual and loaded it up, only to come back after the "ping" to cold food. Had another go and watched closer this time. The light comes on, the plate goes round, but no heat. Shame as I'm not that long out of warranty.
So I guess i'll be reading a few microwave reviews over the next few days. I'd like another one of these but don't fancy replacing it again.
Summary: Sorry to say it's let me down
