I would have preferred to have kept my 30 year old Philips with its non turntable design but I could not find parts. So I wanted a large microwave without all of the added grills and oven features. (I have a Panasonic one of those and it is poor all round!). My spec was not easy to find so I settled on this Samsung. It works very well. Easy to use. Takes my large bowls. I am incredibly impressed for the price.
Shopping for a microwave isnt always as easy as it seems. What you need for the kitchen is something that isnt going to stand out like a sore thump, neither do you want it to look and feel cheap. In my opinion cheap microwaves usually always look cheap. As soon as i clapped upon this stylist Samsung number I just had to have it. If you are looking for a microwave that will not only do things microwaves usually do (!) but will also look good, this is the one for you. The simple lines and the jet black body with a simple brushed steel effect handle make sure nobody walks through the kitchen without noticing it. There are just two simple controls on the front and surprisingly it is very easy to keep clean. when you turn the microwave on the first thing you will notice is just how quiet it is. Most microwaves I have owned have always being noisy but not the Samsung.
Unfortunately there are just a few bad points with this microwave. The beeping noise it makes when the timer goes off is a little on the loud side and can become annoying after a while. Also, the capacity is limited, just 23 litres. This is an 850w model and has 6 power settings - which more than suffices. Overall this microwave is more of an object of extreme beauty than a real hard working microwave. For the price, though, it isnt much more expensive than a base model cheap white plastic monstrosity.
