This microwave looks very stylish and worth paying that little bit extra for.My microwaves don't last too long so I purchased an extended warranty for 3 years with this aswell,so I hope this one lasts me a little longer.The microwave so far is working very well.I have now had it for two months and it performs as specified but more importantly it isn't as noisy as my old one.The interior is ceramic so you won't be spending ages cleaning it.Looks very good on my kitchen counter top as it is black also however the dark panel cover means you can't see what's happening to your food when the microwave is on.The overall size of the interior in proportion to the rest of the microwave is a bit small but is only an issue if you are tight for space.the buttons are easy to operate and the handle design is very stylish but more importantly sturdy.Good product and would recommend to anyone looking for something practical aswell as stylish.
This Samsung microwave was a replacement for an old cheap model that I bought, it lasted about 2 weeks before the door fell off, and I only used it twice! So I thought it was about time a spent a little extra money and got myself something decent for a change.
On first appearances it is quite a stylish looking piece of kit, the neutral black will go well in most kitchens. The function buttons are big and bold, even the clumsiest of fingers will find it difficult to hit the wrong one. It is quite large in size compared to some microwaves, but this solves the problem of having plates that are too big for the microwave, which I have experienced in the past.
I would advise giving the manual a good read, or keeping it close to hand the first few times of using it as it doesn't give much away on the actual facia of the microwave, and it can take a few times of using before you know exactly which buttons to press if you aren't using the +30 second function.
The main function I use on the microwave is the defrost option. As this Samsung model has a "rapid" defrost function, I thought this might be useful. I have used this function quite a lot over time and I can safely say that they have used the word RAPID in very much the right context. It can take 3 - 6 minutes to defrost half a kilo of mince or four chicken breast, which is a lot faster than what I am used to. I rarely use it for cooking anything, but I do use it to warm up plates of food or the odd bowl of soup, and I do find that it all it takes is one and a half to two minutes for it to be piping hot.
