Sharp R662KM Review

Easy to operate, with clearly labelled button controls. Build quality feels reasonably solid too! As the microwave is a 20 litre model, the turntable is relatively small (25.5cm) so best check the measurements prior to buying.

Our Sharp R662KM Grill Microwave Review

Sharp R662KM

Looking for a small and cheap grill microwave?  The Sharp R662KM provides a powerful grill together with an 800w microwave and 20 litre volume, and is priced at the lower end of the microwave market.  The exterior is finished in a black and grey colour scheme, which shouldn't date too much and is fairly neutral in style.

In terms of specification, the R662KM offers a 1000w grill, together with the aforementioned 800w microwave, split into 11 different power levels. The control system is a touch panel based, with each individual button very well labelled for easy operation.  The viewing window for the microwave is relatively small, yet the interior light is more than adequate to see how well the food is cooking.  The handle feels firm to the touch, and we can't foresee any issues with reliability, as well including a standard child lock facility to avoid accidents.  The LED display is refreshingly bright and very legible, even in bright kitchens. 8 auto cook functions and included, which should prove to be a time saver for cooking popular food types.

In operation, the R662KM drew praise from our testers.  It performs very well, especially considering the low overall price tag.  Food was heated and cooked fast, with no noticeable uncooked or cold spots.  The grill takes a little time to heat up, as with most grill microwave ovens, but once it reached temperature it crisped and browned food nicely.  Overall build quality is pretty decent, and the microwave as a whole feels solid to the touch.  Granted, it might not as stylish or flash as higher end grill microwaves, but purely from a performance basis, we couldn't fault the Sharp R662KM - it works well, and offers excellent value.

Our Verdict for the Sharp R662KM

If you're looking for a modest sized budget grill microwave, which will offer dependable performance, then the Sharp R662KM will tick your boxes.  It works well, is solid to the touch and offers good value.  Recommended!

Sharp R662KM Microwave Customer Reviews

"I needed a new microwave for my flat, but didn't want to spend the earth on it.  I was only after a small sized one, but needed a grill as well.  I had a quick shop around and plumped for the Sharp R662KM - it looked pretty good in the pics and online the reviews were largely positive.  Upon receiving it a couple of days later, it was relatively easy to setup and get running.  The buttons are marked clearly, so you don't really need to check the manual at all to get it working.  As it's a 20 litre microwave, the R662KM is reasonably small - that said it still functions well and fitted all of the plates I tried, with the exception of one very large square shaped dish.  I wouldn't let that put you off though - it will be fine for the vast majority of customers.  My older microwave that this one is replacing was quite old - this model heats up far faster and makes less noise too.  Overall I'm impressed with it - it works really well, didn't cost too much, is easy to use and clean and feels like it will last a long time.  If you're looking for a cheap grill microwave, then the R662KM is worth looking at - I'm very happy with mine." Chloe Walker, Oxford

"I ended up with some vouchers for my birthday, and shortly afterwards my old microwave broke - so spent them on a new appliance rather than something fun!  That said, I was pleasantly surprised with the Sharp R662KM - it does heat up food very quickly, and the buttons are much easier to learn than my old microwave oven.  It is quite small, but it is deceptively large inside, and it easily fitted my plates and containers.  The grey and black looks smart, and doesn't look too cheap despite the fact it's probably a lower end grill microwave.  In short, it's cheap, small, simple to use and works!" Sheila Roberts, Notts

"My older microwave didn't have a grill, and was on the way out so I decided to upgrade.  The Sharp R662KM is a decent solid microwave, which I found easy to use, despite not being the best with technology.  It doesn't cost too much, and although it doesn't look as nice as some of the more expensive microwaves, it still appears aesthetically pleasing.  I was expecting much for the money, but so far it's certainly exceeded my expectations.  Sharp products tend to be well made, and this microwave is no exception.  5 stars from me!" Barry, Devon
