Works great, easy to use and easy to clean.
The microwave looks great and also has good functionality. The programming and features are all useful. It heats food evenly and is very easy to clean with the inside surface. A little expensive compared to others in the same category but i feel that you are paying more for the design and looks.
Bought this today, and used once, but sending it back. Cannot see a thing through the glass door while cooking in progress. The light is so dim and the glass is so dark that you are unable to see anything inside while heating is in progress. A bit of a safety issue that you cannot see if something is about to overheat or explode.

Great except it broke after 2 months of use
Was going great until the door mechanism broke after 2 months meaning that it couldn’t be used as door fault kept showing. Samsung doesn’t offer replacement so has to be sent away meaning no microwave for 6 weeks. Wouldn’t recommend, our Kmart microwave before was better.
It's OK, wouldn't buy it again. Reflects the price
The pro is that it's powerful & decent space inside, at least compared to my previous microwave. The beep once it's finished & the reminder beeps are a great touch.
the thing I absolutely hate is that the window is DARK you can't see inside no matter what you do, so frustrating! The microwave wasn't too loud at first but after only 12 mths the noise is louder than you'd like.
My elderly parents also find this a little difficult to use as the buttons aren't colour coded. I've actually resorted to putting stickers over the buttons to help them.
Great - except for the interior colour
Good microwave. Does what is needed. Easy enough to work out cooking options. I like the 30sec cooking button. Stylish, but like all stainless steel items finger prints and wipe marks stand out. Main negative is the interior and the lighting. Because its dark grey and the light is not strong, you can't see if liquids are bubbling over. I wouldn't buy another grey or black interior microwave again. But the Samsung build and quality is high as usual.

Quite happy with this microwave as it does everything we need.
As stated in many other reviews, only a couple of slight drawbacks:
-Difficult to see food being cook inside while microwave is operating
-when pressing buttons can't be in a rush as they take a second to register.
Purchased in August 2020.
So sorry I ever bought this microwave. It states clearly on all paperwork/receipt that it doesn't rust and I DOES. Ive only had a under a year and Rust is in all the joins inside . Now looking for another Brand as Panasonic don't close properly so thought I would try Samsung. PLS DONT BUY THIS.
Can't see inside
Can't see inside when on. Glass too dark and bulb too dim. What a stupid oversight by Samsung.
1000w is a little low powered too.
I would recommend no one ever buy this microwave.
Purchased in July 2020 for $172.00.
Have had it for 3 hours. It has worked...once.
The microwave was used for the +30 button, pushed 4 times, heated up a cup of water. Then I set the clock. Then the microwave failed to heat. I reset it, did not reset the clock, tried changing the power to 10, turned off eco...nothing. I don't have time for this. It's going back to the shop tomorrow and I will buy Westinghouse. And yes, I did look on youtube, and read the manual...

Love this appliance
I've had my Samsung microwave for 8 months now and I have no complaints, apart from the darkness of the front door panel which makes it difficult to see through but that's a minor irritant. I defrost food in it, cook and also reheat. So far, I haven't ruined anything! It's definitely a lot quieter than the last microwave I had so I'm very pleased.
Cannot see food cook, totally useless
Cannot watch your food cook, useless piece of crap, would not buy another, why they did this is beyond thought, can only wait till it blows up, I might assist it a little, this is how much I dislike it
Purchased in January 2020 for $230.00.
Broke days after warranty ended
It was fine. I liked it, and it looks good. But then it just broke. The fan constantly just runs and the buttons do nothing. So angry at this. I expected better of something I paid so much for.
Purchased in December 2018.
Good microwave at a good price
We bought this microwave a couple of months ago, and have found it to be excellent. It is easy to use and works very well. There are a range of customisable features, and it looks good too. It was great value for money, we are happy with it. I would be happy to recommend it to others!

Love the sleek design. We have had the same model for over two years and when I bought my own place I bought another as it serves every need. Heats up fast and no fuss. easy cleaning. Love the guide setting sticker at the top. Works well for everyday needs.
Cant see food
The microwave functions fine, though the tint on the door is WAY too dark and you are not able to see the food as it is cooking. When the door is open the interior light is functional, though once the door is closed it is useless.
When heating up a jug of milk for custard etc, you really need to be able to see as it comes to the boil. With this microwave that is not possible. I feel that in an attempt to make this microwave look "funky" from they have completely sacrificed usability. Not sure why they put a window on this model at all.
Great so far!
We have had our microwave for a month now. We like it! Although, my husband has mentioned that it should have the feature where you can press “start” and it will automatically cook for 30seconds rather than having to press the 30second button and then start. Our old microwave did this so he wishes this did the same lol.
I have been using my microwave for 7 years, non stop with no problems whatsoever. It is easy to clean, I can watch what is happening during cooking, and it cooks evenly. Defrosting, reheating and cooking are made so quick and easy that I would recommend this to anyone wishing to buy an economical and efficient device.
Good classic sttyle microwave
Really solid traditional type of microwave from Samsung with a beautiful style to it. It does look nice but the main thing is it cooks VERY well indeed and never acts up. It has clear simple menus and a really nice touchpad too. Its nice when things "just work". Delivers the goods every time.
This is a one stop shop for a micro wave, nothing you put in ever overcooks or burns, and it make rice amazing you will not be disappointed with this gem. I have had this for 4 weeks best microwave I have owned to date, I definitely recommend this one to friends and family.
Very happy wth this
We upgraded from a crappy old Aldi microwave to this and didn't look back. Its a pleasure to use in comparison and looks good in the kitchen to boot. Menus are very intuitive and I find the cooking times pretty much spot on. I really like the smart defrost that doesn't cook the food while defrosting - very good. Its fast on full power too. Overall very happy, literally no complaints.
Questions & Answers
Hi. Whats the point of having a globe in this unit?
Is there a higher wattage globe i can use for the interior...
My microwave was a white one but I sent it back for a refund, cannot see a thing through the darkened glass. If you cannot see your hand behind the glass with the door opened then a higher wattage globe is not going to make any difference. I am pretty sure that changing a globe in a microwave is no longer possible for the consumer. It has to go back to a service agent if it blows, so I doubt if a higher wattage replacement is possible.
Hi Brenton, we do not recommend users to replace the interior light. For more information on the interior light of your microwave:
Is there something that I am doing wrong when trying to change the clock from 24 hr to 12 hr display ..... the clock is showing the correct time in 24 hr mode and I follow the instruction to press clock and then 0 for 1 -3 seconds and then 1 ... the display shows .01 and just stays like that ... no 12 hr shows ...what am I missing in the instruction??
Is it possible to bake in this microwave?
Hi Harish, this Microwave Oven does not have the ability to bake. We recommend for you to look at convection microwaves if you are interested in this kind of feature.
