Over The Range Microwave (1.6 cu.ft.; Stainless Steel)
Behind the stylish, stainless steel exterior of this microwave oven lies a high-performance cooking machine. LG’s powerful vented airflow system makes microwave cooking more pleasant by reducing food odors.
What's great about it: Get food hot
What's not so great: Had to have warranty service
"Bought refrigerator, range, dishwasher and microwave. All have required service under warranty and after expiration of warranty. Their customer service rep does not stand behind the appliances. After warranty period the appliances are costing me big bucks!!"
I bought this for my new kitchen renovation. I was getting rid of the huge vent above the stove and wanted a nice place for a microwave that would vent. You can use it to vent up and out, or it can recycle the air and let it flow back in the room. I'm using it for the latter. The fan is very loud, I find, but not so bad that I wouldn't use it. The microwave is nice and has a lot of nice features on it like quick start (also known as Add 30 Seconds). I would recommend it. You probably won't find a better one for a price like this.

This review is for the LG Electronics 1.6 cubic feet over-the-range Stainless Steel Microwave (dang, that's a mouthfull). We're busy renovating the kitchen in our new-to-us house, and doing it all on a budget. I popped into Home Depot to pick up paint, while it was being mixed I wandered around and saw this microwave on sale for $200!!
The design is fabulous, it's sleek and elegant, my husband is very handy but he said even if you aren't it's pretty easy to install, you would need another person however, as it is fairly heavy. It has a hidden venting system which I love because I had to clean my old microwave vent with a toothbrush, and it never looked super clean.
