Who dreamt up these controls???
Controls are counter intuitive and the english users manual an imperfect translation. Controls are exponentially inferior to all our previous convection microwaves and so difficult I continue to use our cheaper back up unit. The dials apparently are multi layered; after you press them once they control different functions or parameters. Not clear from symbols on screen what parameter is being amended. Ive used machine so few times I cannot comment on its cooking performance.
Purchased in June 2020 for A$600.00.
Great oven and microwave but a little bit hard to use
Its a great conventional oven the size is great and cooks really well. The dial can be confusing at times with having to double check what setting it is on. I am a little unsure if this product will hold up as a error came up saying SE it has since went away but i am still concerned if it will last.

Not easy to use
Not as easy as it seems to use. Flimsy booklet doesn't really explain anything. Maybe OK if you have used Samsung before but my mother was getting more frustrated by the minute (quicker than it took the food to heat). Think seriously about this before buying it.
Sad I purchased it
Had a sharp convection for 17 years. It out performed the Samsung in every way. Samsung has a big external footprint and does not fit in the cupboard, the internal racks are flimsy, the turntable wheels will probably last a year, turntable jerks as it turns. Tried to do garlic bread in tin foil in convection mode and everything inside was sparking. The sharp never did this. very sad that I did not get the sharp again.
Booklet seems flimsy without easy to follow basic instructions but there is easy to see basic cooking guide inside the door. Once you've read the booklet a couple of times it makes sense and then you have plenty of cooking methods and options. From yoghurt and prooving yeast dough to cakes and roasts, steaming crisping and microwave, finishing with its own steam cleaning setting. Buttons are fairly easy to undetstand, food seems to retain moisture, I'm still learning more about it as I go, my regular oven doesn't work well so the microwave is taking its place and doing great job so far.
This is a relatively new release convection microwave and it is brilliant. The cost is very much less than the other convection microwave combinations available and it does everything you could wish for in this type of appliance. I was particularly looking for a mix component which uses both convection and microwave in the same operation. This setting gives excellent results when baking chicken and roasts without the extra cost from straight convection cooking, takes less time and gives a beautifully cooked meal with moist and tender meat or chicken. It is very easy to use and attractive looking. It is a reasonably large microwave with a large turntable as well as a grill option. I am delighted.

I can't open the manual. I didn't get one with my machine and this 'copy' comes up as corrupted. Samsung can open it because THEY are the ones with the copy.
