The LG LMV1680ST is a low mid-cost 1000 watt over-the-range microwave oven, the base model in this series of microwaves. The 12.7" turntable of this microwave is equipped with Dual Distribution technology, which circulates the heat inside (with turntable rotation and use of the top fan) for even and thorough cooking. Touch the turntable once to turn this feature on, and twice to turn it off. The sensor cook feature of the LMV1680ST, a common feature on LG microwaves, gauges the humidity of the cooking food, and automatically stops when the food is at the ideal temperature, thereby eliminating over and under cooking. The melt/soften setting is ideal for butter and margarine. This microwave is a step down from the higher cost LMV1813ST in that it has a lower wattage (1000 as opposed to 1100), smaller turntable (12.7" as opposed to 14.2"), a smaller cavity capacity (1.6 cubic feet as opposed to 1.8 cubic feet), and lacks features such as EZ-On, Popcorn Key, QuietPower and Custom Set. The LG LMV1680ST comes with a one year parts and labor warranty. There are model variations available for the LG LMV1680ST.
