Steak night

I had the privilege of enjoying a steak dinner out of young Nathan's convection oven a while back.

The steak was great!

Another question, probably best directed to Nathan and Daisy. How difficult or easy is the Sharp 820 to clean? Since i haven't seen anything but pictures of the exterior i don't know how the interior looks. I haven't owned one of the toaster ovens in about 25 years because they used to be so difficult to keep clean, perhaps they are better now but i haven't wanted one enough to find out :). I like things relatively clean but i don't like to have to take lots of time to keep them that way so cleaning and upkeep is often something i try to factor in when considering a purchase. I am glad that you joined in on this conversation since you have had the first hand experience with this microwave. I am glad to hear about the way the microwave is vented, had not noticed that information on any of the web pages i visited.

stainless steel

The interior of the microwave is stainless steel. It is not difficult to clean. After use, when it has cooled enough to keep from getting burned, take a damp cloth and wipe it out. If you have cooked something very sticky/gooey/messy on the turntable it may need to be washed in sudsy water. If you have used the rack for broiling, it will need to be washed in sudsy water and perhaps scoured a bit with a steel wool pad.

I have noted on the one that we have in the house that I'm getting some grease buildup. The way I handle this is to microwave some lemon juice then scrub the sides of the microwave with a nylon pot scraper; the grease peels off. I plan to inquire of Sharp if there is a better way to get the grease off.

The bottom line is this: The microwave is not too hard to keep clean. The stainless steel wipes clean pretty nicely. It would be nice if this had a 'self clean' cycle but that'd probably be too much to ask. Maybe Charles'll come by and clean the microwave for me!
Then it'll be Charles-cleaned rather than self cleaning!

Nathan and Daisy

Peace of mind

For those concerned about the heat, Sharp makes a built in kit (RK82K) for the 820 convection microwave. It is only available in black but provides the ventilation necessary and the trim pieces to mount the oven in a cabinet. It is expensive ($136) but would ensure no heat problem.

When you're ready to chuck one let me know. You can throw it out at my house. I'll clean it.

Ken,

How does the built in kit provide ventilation? Is there a fan? I saw on the web site that there was a built in kit but assumed it was just to trim out the opening.
