The release also includes Sharp’s SuperSteam+ “superheated” steam and convection built-in wall oven. Sharp announced its smart convection microwave drawer oven at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show last month.
"Forward-thinking innovation has always been a top priority for Sharp, especially when we look to propel our brand promise of ‘Simply Better Living’ to help consumers live healthier lifestyles," said Jim Sanduski, President of Sharp Home Electronics Company of America. "The Smart Convection Microwave Drawer Oven is our next step in advancing the modern kitchen, and we're excited to see the benefits this appliance will bring to home cooks everywhere."
Sharp's Smart Convection Microwave Drawer Oven
Sharp says the smart convection microwave drawer oven is the “appliance technology that home cooks everywhere have been pining for.” The microwave drawer allows homeowners to bake, roast, toast, grill, and air fry, according to the company.
In addition to those cooking abilities, the appliance offers a warm mode that keeps meals steaming, two racks that allow for individual or simultaneous cooking on up to two 9-by-13-inch baking dishes, and built-in airflow controls that redirect any hot air away from surfaces, which allows for a flush mount. It can also appeal to homeowners interested in better hygiene thanks to Sharp’s Easy Wave Open function.
“Beyond the glamour and luxury of this new appliance, our focus at Sharp is always to deliver products that make life easier in the kitchen, and the SMD2499FS comes with all the bells and whistles to achieve that," said Peter Weedfald, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Sharp Electronics Marketing Company of America.

Sharp's SuperSteam+ Superheated steam and convection built-in wall oven
Smart features include access to recipes, cooking tips, and remote control capabilities through the Sharp Kitchen app. Homeowners can also voice control the appliance through Amazon Echo devices or use the glass touchscreen control panel.
Sharp’s new built-in wall oven features 1.1 cubic feet of space at a 24-inch width. This appliance includes a smartphone app, SuperSteam+, where homeowners can remotely start the wall oven, receive notifications, and access recipes.
The steam wall oven gets its “SuperSteam+” title from its temperature capabilities. Sharp says typical steam reaches just 212 degrees Fahrenheit whereas this appliance goes up to 485 degrees Fahrenheit. Its capabilities aside from steaming include grilling and convection cooking. The oven utilizes a removable water reservoir, which holds up to 24 ounces of water.
Homeowners can also clean their wall ovens through two preset cleaning modes and sanitize small kitchen items such as utensils, jars, and lids.
