Sharp R272SLM Microwave Features

Let’s start with the design. The Sharp R272SLM silver microwave isn’t as attractive or streamlined as other models on the market. While we wouldn’t go as far to say that it’s ugly, there are definitely better looking 20L microwaves available. The silver colour scheme with black front panel isn’t going to stand out in your kitchen, but at least gives the microwave an appearance of quality.

Now let’s look at the microwave’s performance. It’s an 800W microwave which means it can cook food relatively quickly. 800W models usually cook food more evenly than less powerful microwaves too – which is important if you don’t want cold spots in your food! The 20L capacity makes it larger than compact microwaves, so it’s a good option if you need to cook medium/large meals but don’t want a huge combination model.

The Sharp R272SLM solo microwave doesn’t have many advanced options, but it does come with 11 different power levels. This is more than many other microwaves on the market. Other features include eight automatic cook menus, defrost function and touch controls.

Overview of Sharp R272SLM features:

  • Silver microwave with black front panel
  • 800W power output
  • Touch controls
  • 20L interior capacity
  • 11 microwave power levels
  • Defrost function
  • 8 automatic cook menus

Sharp R272SLM Microwave Reviews

Reviews of the Sharp R272SLM microwave have been mainly positive, with buyers appearing to be pleased with both the function and convenience of the model. It has achieved a high average rating on many shopping sites.

Some of the positive comments from buyers include that the microwave include that it’s simple to use, reheats food efficiently and cooks relatively fast. One reviewer also mentions that it’s compact despite its 20L capacity.

A downside is the microwave uses a one minute automatic start. While this isn’t a problem for most items, it means the auto-start function can’t be used for short microwave bursts. We would have preferred if the model came with a 30 second option.

Sharp R272SLM Rating and Conclusion

The Sharp R272SLM silver microwave is a relatively straightforward microwave that doesn’t come with many advanced features. It is a solid microwave, but is more expensive than other models in this power and size bracket. For these reasons, we’ve awarded it three out of five stars.
