One of the main reasons this model is in the top 5 is down to its looks. The sleek black finish gives it a really modern touch and the digital display is typical of Samsung's devotion to technology.
It's got a pretty large capacity inside too, with 23 litres to play with. It also has a triple distribution system. In human terms, this means you get more even cooking from top to bottom as the waves enter at different positions and angles. Cleaning is also easier, which is a big plus, as it has a ceramic coating on the inside.
If you've just re-heated a curry or cooked some smoked fish, then you can make use of the handy deodorizer function. It draws in air from your kitchen, then circulates it around the oven to relieve it of nasty odours.
When it comes to cooking, I like to do as little thinking and preparing as possible. Fortunately, this model comes with automatic cooking programmes to make life easier. You simply pick the food type, enter the weight, then the microwave works out the best way to cook it. Simple.
