LG LMHM2237ST Over-the-Range Microwave Review

Whether you’re a gourmet chef or a beginner cook, microwaves make cooking easier. Over-the-range microwaves combine top-notch microwave technology with ventilation hoods. As the name suggests, they are installed above the stove or over the range. This is our review of the LG LMHM2237ST over-the-range microwave oven.

Design

The LMHM2237ST fits perfectly in most modern-day kitchens. The designers have really made an effort to make this microwave oven look simple, sleek and compact. Regardless of your kitchen’s color scheme and overall design, the LMHM2237ST should blend in nicely.

The control scheme is horizontal, which may seem unusual at first, but this is common with over-the-range microwaves. Even the most inexperienced of cooks should be able to get used to the horizontal control scheme pretty quickly. It’s pretty easy to use.

One of the most impressive features of this microwave oven is the expandable vent – the appropriately named Extendavent 2.0. This impressive addition is, according to LG, meant to improve steam and smoke extraction. This combined with simple design, the functional control scheme and 2.2-cubic-foot capacity, is enough to conclude that LG have done a good job when it comes to design.

Performance

The LMHM2237ST excels when it comes to defrosting meals, boiling water or simple cooking tasks, like preparing popcorn for example. If you freeze a lot of food this microwave oven will certainly be welcome. But if you’re used to fully cooking meals and side dishes using your microwave, the LMHM2237ST delivers subpar performance.

The inaccurate cooking sensor has quite a few design flaws that make the cooked food a blend of over and under-heated hot and cold spots, resulting in unevenly cooked meals.

As with any other device, the overall user satisfaction depends a lot on preconceived expectations. Simply put, the LMHM2237ST is decent and efficient, but certainly not top of the range when it comes to performance.

Final Verdict: A Solid, But Flawed Over-the-Range Microwave Oven

Essentially, this makes the LG LMHM2237ST the perfect microwave for those of you who need to quickly reheat or defreeze previously prepared meals or do some simple cooking when in a hurry.

If you are used to preparing full-blown meals using your microwave oven, then this one will not fulfil your cooking needs. As long as it fits your preferences and cooking habits, the LG LMHM2237ST will supplement your kitchen wonderfully and prove to be a powerful addition to your home.
