The Sharp R270KM is no longer widely available, as it has been replaced by more advanced microwaves. If you need a 20L model, we recommend the Russell Hobbs RHM2076SBClick here to view its price.

The Sharp R270KM 20L black microwave is a compact model with a large number of automatic cook menus. It’s designed to make microwave cooking simple and fast, while providing good value for money. In this Sharp R270KM review, we’ll go through the main features of the product in more detail, before discussing buyer’s opinions.

Sharp R270KM Features

The Sharp R270KM is a 20L microwave, meaning it’s compact and should fit in most kitchens. While 20L isn’t enough capacity for big dinner plates or casserole dishes, it’s usually enough people who don’t regularly microwave large amounts of food. If you need an even smaller mini microwave, we recommend looking at the Whirlpool Max 35 or Daewoo QT1.

The microwave is an 800W model, which means it should cook food relatively quickly. It also comes with ten different power levels, allowing you to adjust the microwave output depending on the type of food.

Unlike some other budget microwaves, the Sharp R270KM comes with a range of automatic programmes. These include eight automatic cooking menus, two express defrost functions and three express cook menus. If you need a microwave that makes it as easy as possible to cook a range of different types of food, then the Sharp R270KM could be an option to consider.

Overview of features:

  • 800W microwave
  • Attractive black design
  • 20L interior capacity
  • 10 microwave power levels
  • 2 express defrost settings
  • 3 express cook menus
  • 8 automatic cook menus
  • Compact design
