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!

It cooks hot dogs
The hot dogs are meaty and warm in the middle, don't know how we could of done with out it.
LOVE this microwave
from Columbus, OH, USA
Our last microwave died after only 3 years, and I think we owe it a thank-you card-- SO glad it conked out & we got the Samsung!! It's more solid (the old one always felt "rickety") and I think the slightly retro dial control is genius. I don't miss the 10-digit touchpad at *all*. Someone commented they couldn't enter a long cooking time because there was "only" the 30-second button, but they can't have read the manual. You press the "Microwave" button, rotate the dial to choose the power, press Select, then *turn the dial* to set the cooking time, & press Select again (or you can press the 30-second button, multiple times). If I don't want to adjust the power level, I discovered that I could hit the 30-second button, and then when the cooking starts, I can rotate the dial ("on the fly") to add or decrease time. The button that really sold me, though, is the Soften/Melt Butter. For a baker like me, that's heaven. If I'm doing margarine, I just have to stop it early. The Eco setting for the display light is also a nice perk. Another comment was that the dark interior made it hard to see, but since there's a light that comes on when you open the door, I have no idea why that's a problem-- I can see just fine, and I don't need to see inside while it's cooking.
Great Microwave and great design. easy to use appliance
from Southwest City, MO
I love the design and features of this microwave. Extremely easy to operate.
Simple yet functional
from Grand Rapids, MI, USA
What a simple and easy design. You can get right down to the second on the dial for how long to cook your food so once you master your oven you can cook with precise timing.
Best Microwave Ever!
from Midlothian, VA
It's outstanding. Best microwave I have ever had. I like that it tells me on the inside how to soften butter so when I am baking, I'm not messing up and melting the butter. Small things make it easier for me and I love it!
Lots of great features
from Texas, USA
We have been looking for microwaves for awhile now and I found this one at Lowes! It has a lot of features and a ceramic interior which is great! It is a reasonable price and has everything on it a person could want and then some.
Full size oven, easy to use, large turntable
from Chicago, IL, USA
I replaced a 900 watt with this new Samsung 1.1 CF model. The larger turntable and oven size makes it easier to cook larger portions. Popcorn came out great. Boiling water and reheating coffee also works as expected. I really love the features and controls. There is an temperature sensor which I am still learning, but seems to 'know' the temperature of the food and adjusts for it. As for warming coffee, if you forget it , the oven beeps to remind you its still inside. Aesthetically , the stainless steel and silver painted sides looks very sharp. The blue clock is even able to be turned off. Also a child lock feature for those who might need it. The porcelain interior woll be easy to keep clean. Worth the few dollars more for the great features.
Compliments the kitchen counter, this is a great buy.
