Review of the LG LCRT2010ST 2.0 Cu Ft
This microwave will probably feel at home in your kitchen, on the counter with your favorite toaster oven. There are several features that are sure to put a smile on your face, but there are also disadvantages as well. We judged the LG LCRT2010ST 2.0 Cu Ft based off of the following characteristics:
Design and Usability
This microwave is stainless steel, so may match the rest of your kitchen. Though not exactly unique in design, it is sized to fit on your countertop or in a cabinet.
It is easy to use, so you can cook your food efficiently and quickly. The TrueCookPlus feature allows you to enter a code on the frozen food box so that they microwave can select a specialized cooking time.
The round cavity wall and the Easy-Clean surface make this microwave easy to clean as well and includes a child lock as well.
This microwave has a great automatic sensor for cooking and popcorn popping. It distributes heat evenly so food cooks throughout, without any unequal hot or cold spots.
Automatic sensor technology is a microwave oven feature that can ultimately determine what microwaves excel or don’t these days, so this is important to note.
If you’re using the defrosting feature, however, you may leave disappointed. The cooking sensor can sometimes leave your frozen food unequally heated, with warm and cold spots.
You should also know that this microwave may run a little louder than you are accustomed to. It is up to you to decide whether or not this feature will bother you when you are at home.
What You Should Know
This microwave works best if you leave it alone. Plug in a code to activate a heat sensor and your food will cook almost perfectly.
The TrueCookPlus option is truly automatic and can cook frozen food very well, as long as you follow the instructions given to you. However, know that if you’re trying to defrost food, it may not end up cooking as well so you might want to consider defrosting using a different method.
Overall the LG LCRT2010ST 2.0 Cu Ft Counter Top Microwave Oven with Easy Clean is a solid choice for a microwave. The 2.0 Cu feet of space is larger than many microwaves out there and produces 1200 watts and weighs almost 40 lbs, again, greater than most microwaves.
