Found 10th Aug 2013
was in tesco silverburn and they had these microwaves stating half price, had quite a few.

Online they are £51.50

A bargain for £36.50 methinks for a half decent branded microwave.

reviews have been really good too.

But still a cheap microwave so heat for that.

Apple phones aren't made by Apple ...
In fact half of what you buy is badged stuff. I wouldn't lose sleep over it;
Sharp must be happy it won't tarnish their image ...

That's a poor analogy,

Apple products are designed by Apple and manufactured/assembled for them, same as AMD do not manufacture anything.

These microwaves simply carry a Sharp badge, they are not designed by Sharp, have no relation to Sharp apart from a name used under licence, just like Hitachi/Toshiba with Vestel TV's

People think they are getting a good quality item, but these are just the same as the supermarket own or no-namo microwaves.

I've repaired enough to know.

Go and look at them all next to each other, open a Argos Cookworks, Russel Hobbs, Daewoo, Non Inverter Panasonic, they are all the same! Same insides, same magnatron, All made by the same Chinese factory just badged under licence, with different controls to make them look a bit different.

Pick any they are all the same, I think there are only 2 manufacturers of budget microwaves, what ever looks the best and has the best controls, but make sure it has a glass door, some just have a plastic film sticker!

For what it's worth, this and the same Panasonic model does not do seconds, the minimum increment is 10 secs, not that it would bother me but just pointing that out.

If you can find one a UK made Panasonic Inverter are the best, but they are only full sized and not that cheap, though the PRC made models are a bit cheaper and are actually Panasonic.

Its sad because the Sharp Carousel used to be the best you could get IMHO, built like tanks and would see 10-20 years use!

I have one of these, or one like it for about three years now. Worst microwave EVER.

1) Mine does not have a clock. The display flashes constantly with the : when it's not in use. Checked the manual, says "does not have a clock". Mind blown. It probably costs more NOT to have a clock than it would to have one.

2) I think it cooks at the speed of a microwave with 100watts less power than stated.

3) The paint on the inside is peeling off and the metal is rusting.

4) The bulb has blown

Now, many will say that 3 years is longer than a £35 microwave should last, and they might be right, but my parents have had their Panasonic for probably 20 years and it looks like new.
