Sharp microwave

An appliance sales person told me "Sharp is making microwaves for all the high end brands, Wolf, Thermador, Dacor, Viking etc." ...I'm thinking this is a good thing since Sharp has a great reputation for Micros, and I've chosen a Viking based purely on looks, and I've read GW's general opinion of Viking...

RE: Sharp microwave

I guess I should have phrased this more as a two part question: is it true Sharp makes all these microwaves? And therefore can I assume that the bad rap Viking gets, doesn't hold true for their microwaves? Any info about Viking warming drawers? They happen to make one that will fit in my old Thermador spot, and accepts a wood panel front which I want...

RE: Sharp microwave

Maybe I should have titled it "Viking microwave" ...might have gotten more response?
ordered the Viking Micro today, guess I'm on my own on this one ;)

RE: Sharp microwave

I read your post this morning and meant to answer. As I understand it, Sharp has the monopoly on making microwaves in the US (however Panasonic may make their own). Anyway, I believe KA, Viking, Jenn Air microwaves are just " rebranded" Sharps in their own exterior finish/design.

Here's what an appliance expert says on this matter:

By the way, Viking appliances (rebranded Kitchen Aid interiors) do indeed have a nice finish.

RE: Sharp microwave

I thought the Viking was made by Whirlpool, but I haven't looked that closely at them.

OP-my post applies to microwave drawers.
