“ Brand: Samsung / Cooking Power: 1250 Watts „
* Prices may differ from that shown
In our recent house move some items did not make the switch and one example was our microwave which was on its last legs and starting to look a bit tatty so when we moved I went out and bought this Samsung microwave from Argos for £119.00 which was a lot less than the product was available for on Amazon.
It is a nice matt black colour and looks very stylish indeed. It is a combination microwave and it came well packed and it was very easy to set up. The turning plate is nice and large and the microwave has a pretty standard 900 watt output and a 28 litre capacity. The interior is ceramic and is supposed to be scratch proof. It has a digital control panel that is fairly intuitive to operate however for those bits that I could not work out for myself the instruction manual is well written and easy to follow with nice clear instructions.
Cooking wise it is very efficient when operating as a microwave, it is a little noisier than I expected it to be and the timer end alarm is a rather large and persistent beeping noise which for some reason I find annoying, rather like a too loud persistent child I always feel like it is demanding my attention immediately. The nine settings that are available cover all of the options that you could want and there is a handy 30 second booster option when something is not quite cooked enough.
It is very easy to clean after use and the interior has an anti bacterial protection as well to help keep everything nice and hygienic which is so very important when it comes to food preparation. I tend to find that I clean it after each use unless I have just heated up some milk but after any sort of cooking I make sure that it is kept nice and clean.
Being a combi it can also operate as a cooker and a grill, I have yet to use it as a grill just because the cooker has a larger and better grill installed. The grill has a 1250 watt output and the oven can go up to 220 degrees centigrade. I have used this only once when entertaining as the oven was already at full capacity and it worked well. If you do entertain a lot then the extra capacity this can provide can be very useful.
So far so good, it looks cool with regards to the design and works efficiently, now if I can just work out how to disable or turn down that annoying beep I will be very happy.
