Samsung MG23F301TAK Freestanding Microwave - Black

We love it. It’s in our Top 5! This model’s great if you’re into techy machines. It has 20 pre-programmed cooking times to allow you to cook food properly and nutritiously. You can make anything from spinach to brown rice. If you’d prefer to do it all manually, you can just press the start button to add 30 seconds of cooking time, which is perfect if you just want to reheat last night’s tea.

"Good but be careful"

Pros: Value for money, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, easy to clean

Cons: cannot view food whilst it is cooking

"Excellent product but with one major drawback.

The interior light is too dim or the glass in the door is too dark. You cannot see how the food is cooking or if porridge is about to boil over."

"Good microwave"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, looks good

Cons: Noisy

"Good size, great to have the grill function. 2 drawbacks - as others have said the glass on the door is quite dark so it's hard to see how the food is cooking, and the grill element rattles a bit sometimes when the microwave is on. But good for the price, looks smart and is easy to use."

"Great product"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: none

"Chose this model as it is a Which Best Buy. I liked the look of it too. The controls are very easy to use and very precise. The results have been great - but that may be because my last microwave was so bad. It is not easy to see what is cooking inside the oven but, to date, that has not caused any problems. One downside is the lack of a Samsung recipe book which would help to get used to cooking in this oven. This product is definitely excellent value for the money."

"Good value good-looker"

Pros: Value for money, looks good

Cons: grill element not great

"I needed a black fairly compact microwave with grill which matched our new kitchen without taking too much worktop space but still able to take proper size dinner plates and robust enough for daily use by all 4 members of our a busy family.

The Samsung satisfies on all these counts and is very good value as well as being a smooth design which merges well with our other black appliances in the kitchen (even though the handle is brushed stainless steel and not black like it looked of some of the website photos)...

I guess the only reason I find it difficult to be more enthusiastic is comparison with what I am used to! In our case that was a big old 1000w Panasonic combination oven which served us well for 13 years.

The Samsung is smaller (which is what I wanted) and lighter and more plactic-y which means it moves on the worktop and gives the feeling of being not as robust as the Panasonic. The rotating control knob seems a bit primitive and breakable too (but it has been OK so far!) The dark black glass of the door looks great but is, as other reviewers have pointed out, very hard to peer through to assess if your food is about to explode! I have also noticed the difference in cooking speeds that 800 rather than 1000w makes.

My main disappointment, though, is the grill feature. On my old Panasonic this is concealed in the "ceiling" of the oven cavity which helps to protect the element from any food spatters which inevitably burn off setting the smoke detector screeching! On the Samsung I was surprised to see the grill heating element sticks out from the back wall of the oven taking up valuable head room so that I can't fit my 16cm tall rice micro-cooking pot on the turntable. Needless to say, I haven't grilled anything or cooked rice yet!

If you read the instructions it doesn't take long to know how to use the Samsung (though my husband didn't and wondered why it was necessary to stand by and press the start button every 30 seconds...it isn't!) The deodorising feature is interesting and seems to work. The micro-cooking finished warning "beeps" are very shrill and loud so no worries if you are up the garden pottering and want to know when your peas are done!

Overall though, I think I have got a compact smoothly designed and reasonable quality microwave for a fifth of what I would have paid for a replacement Panasonic combination oven plus a lot more worktop space so I cannot complain!"
