LG LMV2031ST gives you the optimal performance because of its cooking sensor, as it senses humidity level and adjusts the cooking time according to it. Auto and rapid defrost makes life easier for the busy people. It has a preprogrammed popcorn button for making popcorns.
It's a powerful beast but works silently without making any noise.
How to use
You can use this function as a kitchen timer. Simply press the “TIMER” button and enter the desired time at touchpad e.g. 5 minutes. Press “START” and your microwave will beep after the 5 minutes. It will remind you.
This feature enables you to quickly start cooking without even touching the Start/Enter Button. Just press the EZ-ON button and it starts cooking with full power for 30 seconds. You can toggle the “EZ-On” button to extend the remaining cook time by 30 seconds. Great for quick reheat food.
For the best results always position the dish in the center of the turntable. It's best to cover your food with a microwave safe dish lid when cooking to reduce any food splatter or mess.
Avoid using metal dishes or plates, it will damage your microwave.
By default LG over the range microwave oven automatically defaults to the power level of 100%. But you can adjust your power level in increments of 10 according to your cooking needs. Just follow the below steps.
- Enter the cook time
- Select power level button
- Enter desired percentage
- Press start/enter
Some recipes need different power levels during different stages of cook cycle. LG LMV2031ST can be programmed up to 2 or 3 stages. For example, maybe at first stage, you need to defrost. You can choose to cook for 4 minutes for 50% power. And then 70% power for 5 minutes and 30 seconds.
For 2 stage cooking
1. Select “COOK TIME”
2. Choose “POWER LEVEL” 50%
3. Select the 2nd “COOK TIME”
4. Choose “POWER LEVEL” 70%
5. Press Start
For 3 stage cooking
1. First of all select “DEFROST” option
2. Select “COOK TIME” and enter desired cook time
3. Choose “POWER LEVEL” for example 40%
4. Press “COOK TIME”
5. And at last select “POWER LEVEL” e.g. 60%
6. Press Start/Enter
TIP: Turn Off the turntable if you are using the large dish in the microwave oven.
LG lmv2031st is the best for cooking quick meals, defrosting, popcorn and frozen food. Yes its not the top notch over the range microwave in the world. But in this price range it does a pretty awesome job. It comes with one warranty so you don't have to worry, if anything goes wrong. It was came out first in the September 2013 so its been in the market from long time.
