Sharp Carousel Microwave Oven Review

With its small footprint and ample interior, the Sharp Carousel Microwave Oven (R-331ZS) won’t take up too much of your countertop space.  Invented by pioneers of the microwave carousel, Sharp, this efficient model has 1,000 watts of power and a carousel turntable that rotates automatically as your food is being cooked, for more consistent heating and even cooking.

While very different to the original Carousel which was created back in 1962, with a Sharp microwave oven you know you will be getting a top quality product. Available from Amazon, it is in stock now.

Anyone who is looking for a simply stylish, well-priced, compact stainless steel microwave oven with a medium-sized interior should be happy with the R-331ZS.


Measuring approximately 15 inches by 20 1/4 inches by 12 inches and weighing just over 29 pounds, the Sharp Carousel Microwave Oven has a 1.1 cu. ft. capacity and an 11-1/4 inch Carousel turntable. While it doesn’t have as large a range of programs as some of the more expensive models, it has more than most in its price range.

These include 5 Auto-Cook and 4 One-Touch Programs and there are 11 power levels to choose from plus time and weight defrost options. The Auto Cook programs are Bread, Soup, Baked Potato, Fresh Vegetables and Frozen Vegetables. Select one of these when cooking the relevant food item for a perfect result every time. One-Touch programs include Defrost, Popcorn, Beverage and Frozen Pizza and there is a Dinner Plate program that can be used if you want to warm your dinnerware and crockery.

Another handy feature is the microwave’s one touch + 30 second button, while will enable you to add an extra 30 seconds cooking time with each push of the appropriate button.

A clear and easy to read LED digital control panel makes using the microwave a pleasure, not a chore, while a digital clock will allow you to time your dishes perfectly. When your food is cooked, the machine will emit 3 fairly loud successive beeps to alert you. A child-proof lock makes the Sharp Carousel Microwave a great choice for families with young children.
