New features include convection and sensor cooking, an
over-the-range (OTR) venting system, and a special pizza baking drawer. The new
additions are available in OTR and countertop models and in a variety of
finishes.

"Our microwaves offer consumers superior performance and
time-saving features that make cooking more convenient and enjoyable," said
Ellis Mass, the company's brand communications director for home appliances.  "By expanding our lineup with greater
functionality and new design palettes, consumers can enjoy a variety of
appliances that are sure to complement any kitchen decor."

The new models, which extend LG's microwave line to about 30
ovens, include:

  • an OTR convection microwave (model LMVH1711ST)
    that     can serve as a second oven where
    consumers can pre-heat, bake or roast foods in less time. Humidity sensors determine
    when food is cooked and automatically turn off the microwave to help prevent
    the over- or under-cooking of meals; the suggested retail in a stainless-steel finish
    is $629;

  • an OTR microwave (model LMH2016ST) with LG's
    "Extenda" vent, which covers the entire cooking surface, including the front
    burners, for better, more complete ventilation in the kitchen, the company
    said; the unit features humidity sensors and stainless-steel finish, and
    carries a suggested retail of $419; and

  • a 1,000-watt countertop microwave (model
    LCSP1110ST) with a 1,400-watt pizza drawer that can cook and bake at the same
    time. Featuring an Auto Pizza mode that automatically adjusts cooking times for
    fresh or frozen pizzas, the unit is available in stainless at a suggested
    retail of $209.
