Sharp microwave reviews
In the Which? lab we test microwaves on a wide range of criteria, and have found a significant difference between the best and worst models.
Sharp microwaves have achieved varying success in our tough tests, highlighting the importance of choosing a microwave by model, rather than by brand.
Scores for speed of cooking range significantly – one model is rated excellent for this, but others are very poor. Scores for quality of food and evenness of cooking also range from excellent to very poor.
If you’re considering buying a specific Sharp microwave, check how well it scores on a variety of criteria by looking at our microwave test results.
When testing speed of cooking, we measure how long a microwave takes to heat a ready meal to a minimum of 70°C. If you want a microwave that cooks particularly quickly, check the speed of cooking scores for each microwave in our microwave reviews.
The table reveals customer scores and Best Buy information for Sharp microwaves. Logged-in Which? members can find out how good Sharp microwaves really are - if you're not already a member, discover the benefits of getting full access for one month with a £1 trial membership.
