This microwave replaces a 15+ old Samsung microwave. It is good looking and functions as designed. There are features I may never use but that's OK. I just wanted it to be easy to use to heat up food. I wanted to address two of the most common reasons that people gave this microwave a bad review. ONE: You can't see inside. The door is very dark. If you are someone who needs to watch for spillover or you like to watch the food cook, then this is NOT the microwave for you. The only time you can see inside the microwave with the door closed is at night OR if you have a really dark room. This hasn't been an issue for me. It's the only downside to an otherwise great microwave. TWO: the dial doesn't work. YES is does. Read the manual. If you want to set a specific time, you need to press the MICROWAVE button, then the button to the right of the dial (hand/finger symbol) to select the the power setting, THEN you can turn the dial to choose the time. I find that for most quick reheating, I'm using the Start/30Sec button to select the amount of time. This is easy enough for 1 or 2 minutes of cook time. Overall, I love the microwave. It fits in well with the other appliances in my kitchen and you can't beat the price. I've only had it a couple of weeks but hopefully it will last as long as our first Samsung microwave.

WARNING- Do NOT buy this microwave if you just want an ordinary working microwave. There is no way to set it to work for 20 minutes without pushing the 30 second button 40 times!!! (At least the control knob didn't work for me or for my kids!) The instruction booklet will tell you what program to use for some foods (that I never use a microwave for) BUT you would have to memorize not just the program number but the additional number to push after pushing a button in between! I really have to wonder if the other reviews are legitimate people. I mean who in the world would want this?! If you do choose a program there is NO TIMER that counts down until the last minute! You will have no idea if it's going to run for 20 or 2 minutes! It's CRAZY! I'm taking it back! Good riddance! The sensor cooking doesn't work either! I thought it would be a nice feature, but I always stop the microwave when food starts popping and it was always overdone in this microwave even before the time ran out. And who knows how much longer it was going to run, because as I stated there is no countdown until the last minute! Be glad you read this before purchasing. I wish someone else had taken the time to explain it. This is the first time I have taken the time to write a long review, but if I ever run into something like this again you can bet I'll be doing it again!

Simple to use.

Comments about Samsung Silver Sand Countertop Microwave:
bought this model because of size limitations in my kitchen. Love the door handle as opposed to the push button door openers which have a tendency to stick. Interior is super easy to clean. Controls are very easy to understand and use. It's exterior is visually appealing.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy to use
Love the features and ease of functionality. Ceramic makes for easy cleanup as well. Highly recommend!
Can't beat the price
from San Francisco, CA, USA
This microwave unit does an excellent job and the design is top of the art. The price is a really a great value and deal to have in my kitchen for my routinely cooking needs.
The perfect microwave that mixes old and new
For a microwave I was actually impressed at the performance and how well it re-heats stuff up without any problems or complaints. Would recommend to anymore that wants a new microwave with a touch of the old looks
I just brought this microwave and I'm already in love. The design, the quality and performance makes this the best microwave ever. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.
I like the dial to add more time. Can also change the power level easily. Quick setup and the look inside and out are great!
So far so good
from New England, USA
Bought to replace microwave that died. Hoping the ceramic interior will be easier to keep clean. It is dark inside, due to blue finish.
from Philadelphia, PA
Very sleek design. Heats food well. We use just the simple features so we haven't made use of all the options yet. The blue time display is bright and modern.
from Chicago, IL
This refrigerator is the definition of confusing. And to make matters worse our home is on their second one in less than a month. Sometimes unresponsive too. Other than that it's a fairly amazing microwave
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Nice little microwave!
from Dunedin, FL
I love the features of this microwave, especially the deodorization feature. I haven't seen that one before. I also like the clean design, and the interior is very easy to clean. Another feature I like is the surface and the buttons. I specifically bought this model because of the buttons. They are actual little plastic bars instead of the touch pads. I had those before, and they get all scratched up by your fingernails and become unreadable. The only thing I don't like is that is doesn't have a kitchen timer, which I used all the time on my old microwave. Although I don't have kids, it also offers a child lock feature. All in all, a great value for the price!
