LG MJ3281BCS Combination Microwave & Convection Oven, Black / Stainless Steel

Product information

Everything you might desire from a microwave is embodied in the LG MJ3281BCS microwave and convection oven, finished in black and stainless steel.

Use this oven’s convection heating to bake and cook food, or the microwave to heat, reheat and defrost, according to your fancy. More even browning for baking and faster roasting is a big advantage when using a convection microwave oven, and the Quad Convection heating system employs top and back plate heating for efficient convection. The inclusion of 2 shelves gives you plenty of room to cook as you please.

This chic appliance boasts a streamlined design, supported by the accolade of a 2010 iF Product Design Award. An oven-style pull-down door gives this microwave a unique touch, while sleek electronic controls make the MJ3281BCS easy to use.

Within this housing is a charcoal lighting heater, offering high power density and a fast response time to give you tasty, crispy food. The grill temperature control ensures even temperatures when cooking, while a child safety lock prevents accidents and ensures your food cooks without interruptions.

Q & As

LG MJ3281BCS Combination Microwave & Convection Oven, Black / Stainless Steel 4.1 5 22 22
Unreliable and innacurate I bought this product approximately 3 years ago. It has broken down twice, both times outside the warranty period. The microwave generator failed and took a transformer with it. Then, about 3 months ago, one of the grill elements failed. My repairman was unable to source a replacement LG part, but was able to fit a Panasonic part. I checked whether the part was available from LG who referred me to 4LG, their spares stockist, who were unable to quote for the part I use the convection oven facility a lot, but the temperature control is inaccurate. Set it to 180 degrees and it says it has reached temperature when, it reality, it is only at 150 degrees. When left heating, it reached over 200 degrees. If you buy this oven, buy a good oven thermometer at the same time!! 04 October 2014
Good for multi-tasking Good all-round combination oven; temperature indicator particularly useful when heating up the oven for convection cooking. Clear information panel lets you know what's going on and gives you total control over your cooking. 21 August 2014
third time lucky Wanted this to replace my ten year old solardom which was excellent. First one was damaged,second one faulty but third one was perfect. As a full time worker plus a mum and horse owner this makes meals in minutes. I rarely use my main oven but cook most things in this using the multiple options. Food is cooked quickly but browned and crisp. A roast dinnerin 40 minutes for four people fits into my hectic life 29 July 2014
Best ever present ! Bought this for my parents in October, apparently it is the best thing ever to enter the house lol, this from my 83 yr old father who uses it to supplement his conventional oven, he bakes roasts and heats etc in this oven, he finds it easy to read and easy to use. The oven has not failed to live up to his expectations and they are more than pleased with it. 28 December 2013
not as good as our 10 year old Panasonic it is replaceing Bought through JL last December; has broken down twice in eight months, first time they replaced almost all the insides, second time we are still waiting for a resolution after nearly three weeks. Not as reliable as the 10 year old, fault free, Panasonic it was meant to replace. JL could have done more to help us, LG customer service non existent 24 September 2013
Thank goodness for John Lewis I have had a few problems with Panasonic microwaves so I thought I would try LG. Big mistake, only used the machine for 8 days and the turntable stopped turning. Thank goodness John Lewis, without any hesitation, agreed to exchange the product for me. Needless to say I will not be buying LG, which is a shame as I have had one of their washing machines for over 16 years. Once again it pays to shop with John Lewis their customer service is second to none. 05 August 2013
A necessity! This was the first time I have purchased from you on-line and to collect my order within 24 hours from my local Waitrose store was unbelievable! Excellent service and one I shall use again. Thank you. 17 January 2013
great After 10 years with the LG solar dom, which died,,,,,, I have now the new model. it's great. A little different in set up but cooks a roast within 30 minutes to perfection, roast tatts n all. As a single guy this is a wonderful buy. All my cooking needs are there. no need for full blown cooker when this beaut can do all in less time. Another great LG product delivered on time from John Lewis, many thanks 04 January 2013
