    Two weeks ago, I decided to get rid of our old GE microwave for a couple of reasons. The paint on the inside was peeling after years of cleaning, the wheels on the turn table had rusted and left rust stains on the floor of the microwave. The worst offender of all was the infernal beeping, which drove my husband up a tree. My husband and I also wanted a smaller microwave that would take up less space on our counter. Finally, we budgeted between $100 and $150 for our next microwave. We went to three stores before we ended up at Best Buy, because this store was the farthest out on our route. My husband's main criteria was a microwave that could be muted with a button on the panel, or at least with a series of panel pushes. We'd read about this feature online, but once we were out on the road, finding one was like trying to find the elusive leprechaun. None of the models at the other stores had a mute button, and the majority did not have a manual to ascertain if muting was an option. When we arrived at Best Buy, we were approached by a sales person in the appliance department, and my husband described what we wanted, mainly the mute feature. He looked at my husband like he had two heads and said, "Most people want to know when their food is done." I was sort of stunned. I think we are pretty capable of telling when the microwave stops without a beeping alarm that sounds like a garbage truck backing up. There were two microwaves on display with the mute button function. And wonders of wonders, manuals were available to peruse! While I realize I could have looked up a manual on-line with my iPhone, that is time consuming. How great of Best Buy to have a manual available! Because it was Labor Day week-end, this model was on sale for $144.00, which obviously fit in our budget. Besides the mute feature, I was super impressed with the ceramic interior (no peeling paint), and the metal free turn table (no rusting). At this point, we didn't even know about the crisper feature! We just wanted a microwave that was in our budget, didn't beep, and was easy to clean. I was also surprised at how quietly and easily the door closed. Our old one sounded like we were closing the vault to Fort Knox. After using this for a week and a half, I have to say that I am extremely impressed. The food heats evenly, even during defrost mode. The crisper feature works, although that isn't very important to us. It's more like a novelty than a necessity. The microwave is a little larger than we wanted, but sacrificing an inch of space on my counter is worth all the great features. I am extremely happy with this microwave and would recommend it to anyone.

    Samsung Microwave - MG11H2020CT

    JustAThoughtFromMe

    First of all, I don't think I should be FORCED to check Yes or No whether "I would recommend this to a friend". Or, there should be a NEUTRAL answer available to check. I checked YES only because to check NO would seem to cast a more negative rating to it. It is an okay microwave - it does work, even if there are a few things I would like to be different about it. Anyway, I bought this microwave on 11/05/14. It has worked fine for warming up and cooking food. I don't usually use the preset buttons nor the Cooking Chart shown just inside the door. It came with a Ceramic "Crusty" Plate and a Wire Cooking Rack, but I haven't been using them, nor the Grilling function. It would be nice if there were pictures and/or videos that I could look at to help me understand how to use them. Does the grilling unit and microwave get splattered with grease from cooking hamburgers or other raw meats, since you can't cover them with paper towels like you could if you were just microwaving them? It seems like the rack would put the food too close to the grill unit, but maybe it isn't as hot as the ones in regular ovens? Where do you find cookware that is both microwave and oven safe? Although the microwave works fine for my purposes, there are some things that I think should be different. 1. The buttons are kind of hard to push. Our old microwave's buttons were much easier to push. 2. The cord is a little too short, so I can't center the microwave on the microwave cart where it should be. 3. The turntable sits on a small center part and on a separate rotate ring. This design is harder to put in place correctly. It also allows the turntable to be easily knocked out of whack, and then it won't rotate until you put it back in place. Our previous microwave had a much better design with a three-pronged plastic support piece that fit in a center hole. It supported the turntable much better and was easier to put back in place after cleaning.

    Terrible warranty service from Samsung

    After 90 days the whole panel was dead. We reached out to Samsung Customer Service and ended up bringing the unit to a local repair center that said we should have it fixed by the end of the week. After almost a month, we finally got it back and everything seemed great, until it died again with the exact same problem after less than 3 weeks!!! After calling Samsung Customer Service and explaining that with 2 young children and having to heat milk in the morning, trying to do another repair is just too much of an inconvenience, Samsung said that normally they require another attempted repair but said we could forward them the bill of sale and request a refund instead because of our situation. After almost a dozen or so calls, emails, and uploads to get the refund issued, only now, after over 2 weeks of back-and-forth, we are being told that we still need to attempt another repair??? Terrible customer service and completely misleading to their loyal customers!!! My last ticket with Samsung was #5117590643. Stay away from Samsung products is you value spending your time with your family rather than Samsung Customer Service.

    MY MICROWAVE WAS STILL UNDER WARRANTY WHEN IT BROKE. I CALLED THE REPAIRMAN THAT WAS RECOMMENDED BY SAMSUNG. HE PICKED UP MY MICROWAVE AND CALLED ME TO LET ME KNOW THAT THE PART THAT WAS BROKEN (MAGNETRON?) COST MORE THAN A NEW UNIT SO HE WOUD NOTIFY SAMSUNG AND I WOULD GET A REFUND OR REPLACEMENT. WELL AFTER DEALING WITH SAMSUNG FOR OVER A YEAR...YES OVER A YEAR AND JUMPING THROUGH HOOP AFTER HOOP...THEY FINALLY TOLD ME THAT THEY CAN NOT GIVE ME A REFUND UNLESS I SEND THEM A PICTURE OF THE CUT CORD!! WELL SINCE THE GUY NEVER RETURNED THE MICROWAVE TO ME AND I WAS NOT AWARE THAT I NEEDED TO SEND A PICTURE OF THE CUT CORD, IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SEND THIS TO THEM. THEY EVEN CALLED THE GUY AND HE TOLD THEM HE PICKED IT UP AND DID NOT RETURN IT TO ME AND THEY ARE STILL NOT WILLING TO ACCOMMODATE!! I JUST BOUGHT ALL NEW APPLIANCES FOR MY HOUSE AND THERE WERE SOME REALLY NICE LOOKING SAMSUNG APPLIANCES THAT I MIGHT HAVE BOUGHT IN THE PAST BUT I WILL NEVER EVER BUY ANOTHER SAMSUNG PRODUCT BECAUSE OF THE HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE THAT I HAVE RECEIVED FROM THEM OVER THE PAST 1 YEAR AND 4 MONTHS!! I TOLD THEM WHEN I KEPT CALLING THAT MY PERSISTENCE WAS NOT ABOUT THE REFUND BUT ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE AND THAT I WOULD NOT STOP CALLING UNTIL THEY DID THE RIGHT THING BUT THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS OBVIOUSLY NOT GOING TO CHANGE AND I'M JUST TIRED OF WASTING MY TIME!! BUT I WILL BE GOING ON EVERY REVIEW POSSIBLE TO WARN EVERYONE ABOUT THIS!! DO NOT BUY SAMSUNG!!

    Extremely unhappy with this product. Purchased December 2016, within two weeks the door would not open when the latch button was pushed. Called Samsung, they arranged for me to bring the unit to an authorized service repair center. 45 minute drive, dropped off, “repaired” and then was told to pick it up. The door didn’t line up properly after the repair, but the door latch worked --- for 2 more weeks. Called Samsung again, told them the door was broken again, and would like a new unit. Not possible, they said I must bring it back again to be repaired. Another hour and a half round trip to have it repaired for a second time. Door still doesn’t line up but works, for now. Not optimistic at all that it will last. So what I am I to do when it breaks again? The service people on the phone were polite but not helpful or knowledgeable. This included speaking with a supervisor as well. I don’t ask much from a product, just that it work properly and as advertised and if there is a problem, that the manufacturer stand fully behind it. Samsung has failed me on both counts and I would be very hard pressed to ever purchase another Samsung product of any kind.

    A nice, simple, small microwave

    Posted
    SeaSawSung

    I bought this Samsung over a slightly taller Panasonic because of a sale Best Buy was having. I've only used it for a week so far, but I'm happy with my choice. I don't know if this is normal for microwaves, but the electric cord is very short. It's the same length as the microwave and comes out of the far right side. Unless you are putting the microwave directly in front of an electric outlet, or to the left of an outlet, you will need an extension cord. The only other surprise so far is that symbols appear during operation but there is no explanation for the symbols inside the owner's manual. My guess is that it's to show what mode (microwave versus grill) the machine is currently in, but I think it's odd how there's no explanation for them. Other than those 2 things, I've been satisfied so far with my purchase. The machine heats food/liquid well and looks great. The interior light illuminates food during cooking fine. The machine is small enough to fit in limited counter space but large enough inside to properly heat a meal. I don't eat microwave popcorn to be able to test it, but it looks tall enough inside for a bag to full inflate and still rotate. Operation is straightforward, easy. The small size also made the box a manageable weight for one person to lift alone. All in all, if due to space or budget, you have to limit yourself to this smallest/cheapest of the in-store Samsung models at Best Buy, then this is a nice Samsung choice.

    perfect size and features for my apartment

    I bought this to replace a much older one that finally stopped working. This microwave is a big step up with a lot of features that I never had before as well as more power and it's a little bigger. The extra space is nice but it's not so big that it takes up the whole counter. I read some reviews were people thought it was confusing to use but I don't understand what's confusing about it. There's three buttons on the keypad where you select the type of heating that you want. You can choose the microwave, grill or both. If you read the book that comes with it they suggest which settings will work best for most heating situations. There's a rack included that you can use to hold food up close to the grilling element but it also works great for heating things that you don't want to get soggy on the bottom, like rolls and bread. As long as this continues to work properly for a long time I'll be very happy with it. So far it's been at least a month and I love it

    We had been without a microwave for a few months when we finally decided to purchase a new one. Normally we just purchase the cheapest box store one, however this time we wanted something a bit more reliable. Being fans of other Samsung products, we decided to add to our collection. Until narrowing down the brand we were not aware of the new function that Samsung offers, the grilling function. We tried it out the first time with frozen corn dogs and were not disappointed. They came out crispy, just like when you use an oven. That being said, since there is an electric heating element in the microwave the inside is built more like an oven, with the enamel coating, which in turn makes it easier when it comes time to cleaning. Over all like the size, power and options of this microwave.
