Sharp R-1405 Over the Range Microwave
The Sharp R-1405 offers a cheaper option than many other brand name models, while still offering better quality than cheap generic models. This over-the-range microwave does not include too many features in an effort to remain budget-friendly, but offers good basic performance for the price.
The R-1405 has a 1.4 cubic foot capacity and 950 watts of power on high, making it large and powerful enough for most tasks. Although the built-in exhaust fan can get a bit loud at times, it works well. Venting can be set up to be horizontal, vertical, or recirculating, providing a variety of installation options. Features include a programmable display with touch controls, as well as an add minute feature and timer.
