The Sharp KB-6524PS microwave drawer is a stainless steel 2 in 1 microwave that’s designed to be installed in line with your kitchen cabinetry. It offers about 1.2 cubic feet of interior space and is available in either a 24-inch size or a 30-inch size. The Sharp microwave is also one of the few that comes with all the required hardware for installation, so you won’t have to spend more money purchasing them separately.

Opening and closing its microwave drawer is also a very seamless process. With just a simple push or pull, the microwave’s motor system engages to automatically get it open or closed, making it very convenient to use when your hands are full. Read on to find out if this could be the best microwave for you.

Why We Like It – Sharp Microwave Drawer

The Sharp Microwave Drawer is a 1.2 cubic feet built-in microwave that is a great option especially if you don’t have that much space to work with on your countertop. The microwave can be installed into island peninsulas or cabinetry in your kitchen, and the great thing about it is, that it comes with all the hardware necessary to have the installation done.

Pros
  • Sensor Cook technology
  • Comes with required hardware for installation
  • 1 Year Parts, 1 Year Labour Limited Warranty
Cons
  • Expensive

Power & Performance

Similar to its cousin the Sharp SMD2470AS, this Sharp stainless steel microwave drawer packs a power output of about 950 watts, which is enough to prepare family meals but slightly on the lower side for commercial use. With it, you’ll get up to 11 power levels, as well as sensor cooking technology where all you need to do is input the type of food you’ve put into the microwave and it’ll figure out what power and time limit to do the cooking at. The Samsung MC12J8035CT microwave also comes with a similar feature. The only major difference between the two is that it’s a countertop microwave.

Durability

Just like the Sharp Over-the-Range convection microwave, this Sharp microwave oven comes backed with a 1-year warranty for parts and labor, so should anything unexpected occur to it, you’re free to call up the customer service center and arrange for a home visit by one of their technicians.

Ease of Use

As opposed to having a hidden control panel, the touch control keys on this Sharp wall oven are easily accessible, and they’re also angled to allow for easier visibility. One particular feature that most people will appreciate on this Sharp stainless steel microwave drawer oven is its Warm feature, where it radiates low energy to keep the food inside warm in the time after it’s done cooking and you’re still yet to remove the food from the microwave. This is one of the features that give this Sharp microwave a slight edge over the Samsung MS14K6000S. If you want a microwave with Inverter Technology Cooking and Turbo Defrost, check the Panasonic Microwave.

Additional Features & Versatility

To prevent unauthorized individuals from using it, the Sharp microwave drawer oven comes with a child lock feature that you can activate, and this can prove to be very important especially if you have very curious kids running around the house.

Value

Opting for a built-in microwave over a countertop microwave allows you to make the most of your kitchen especially if there’s not much of it to go around. The Sharp microwave drawer is also available in two sizes, so you can go ahead and pick the right one for you. Its sensor cook option makes the microwave so easy to operate, and dramatically reduces the amount of time that you need to spend in the kitchen preparing food.

Sharp Microwave Drawer Wrap Up

Available in white, black, or stainless steel, the Sharp KB-6524PS would make a great addition to your kitchen, and also allow you to spend a lot less time preparing your meals. It might be expensive compared to a lot of other available options, but its build quality is top tier.
