Sharp is dedicated to improving people’s lives through advanced technology and a commitment to innovation, quality, value, and design.

Sharp Microwave Ovens, with thoughtful touches and convenient features, are accessible and easy to use. Finally, Sharp offers innovative, built-in products like our Microwave Drawer™ oven and the revolutionary, SuperSteam+™ oven, which uses purely superheated steam at browning temperatures to grill without smoke and roast without drying.
“With our new suite of kitchen appliances, we’re taking Sharp and the home kitchen to the next level,” said Peter Weedfald, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Sharp Electronics Marketing Company of America. “Our goal for each product is to deliver on our brand promise to service the imaginations of home cooks across the U.S. We believe our innovative products and technologies are both practical, and valuable contributions to any modern, smart home.”

24 in. IoT SuperSteam+™ Built-in Wall Oven (SSC2489DS)
This smart, Wi-Fi enabled, 3-in-1 built-in wall oven with superheated steam, steam cook, and convection bake includes an edge-to-edge black glass and stainless-steel design. This second-generation SuperSteam+™ oven includes “Steam Bake” and “Water Bath” for professional quality results at home baking cheesecakes and artisan bread. The Sharp SuperSteam+™ oven is not a traditional “steamer”. Regular steam only reaches 212°F, but the SuperSteam+™ Oven also creates superheated steam at 485°F. Meats will brown. Sugars will caramelize. You can grill without smoke, roast without drying and your food is crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. This IoT-enabled product pairs with a companion mobile application powered by SideChef for basic operations, as well as smart cooking time and temperature settings, and smart recipe guides. With 24 recipes built into the oven and 43 additional recipes found within the app, everyone can get started cooking with superheated steam right away. The removable reservoir means no special plumbing or wet-wall installation is required. A standard 120V power requirement means you can plug it into a standard outlet and you’re ready to go.
- SuperSteam+ Grill: This cooking mode creates delicious grilled and sautéed items such as fish, vegetables, onions, and steak. Like the broil function in a traditional oven, food cooks for shorter lengths of time at high temperatures.
- SuperSteam+ Roast: SuperSteam Roast mode makes it possible to roast dishes such as whole chicken, beef and pork roasts to perfection. Your food will be brown and crispy on the outside, moist and delicious on the inside.
- Water Bath: Steam Bake and Water Bath settings make impulse-baking your favorite treats a breeze. Create creamy desserts such as cheesecake, pudding, and custard with the Water Bath feature, without handling hot pans of water.
- Steam Bake Bread: Steam Bake makes it easy to create French and artisanal bread with crunchy, golden crusts and soft, light and chewy centers.
- Convection Bake: The Convection Bake mode evenly circulates dry, heated air throughout the oven and is perfect for cookies, cakes, biscuits, and pizza.
- Steam Refresh: Don’t call them “leftovers.” Steam Refresh mode revitalizes pasta, vegetables, bread, and meats. The Steam Refresh setting keeps food so moist and flavorful, you can call them “second helpings”
- Steam Keep Warm: Steam Keep Warm mode is your go-to mode for family dishes such as casseroles, vegetables, and quiches you want to keep warm and delicious.
- Steam Cook: Steam Cook mode allows you to cook with regular, traditional steam, up-to 212°F. Perfect for delicate vegetables, seafood, and fish.
