I purchased this as a replacement for my previous Daewoo microwave oven, which recently stopped working after over six years of trouble-free service. With the previous Daewoo being so dependable, I didn't even consider replacing it with anything other than a microwave oven by Daewoo, so I purchased the most up-to-date version of the model I had owned previously.
Not only has it proved to be extremely dependable, it is the best looking microwave I have ever owned. It has a brushed stainless steel front, with a black cabinet (top and sides). The inside is also stainless steel for ease of cleaning. The front panel is attractively set out, and easy to understand. It's not a big microwave, at just 20 litres, but with a small kitchen I'd rather have the extra worktop space. While cooking, the light is not particularly bright, but definitely bright enough to see if your reheated coffee is boiling over! I don't use the oven for any fancy cooking, but it makes great scrambled eggs and porridge. Also perfect for simple tasks like reheating soup, beans etc and for defrosting.
If this oven lasts even half as long as its predecessor, then I'll be delighted. If you're looking for an attractive, simple to use microwave oven that doesn't take up half your kitchen, then go for this one. You won't be disappointed.
Further to my original post... It's now March 2013, three years, almost to the day, since I purchased this microwave back in March 2010. I hate to tempt fate, but I'm delighted to say that I have not had a single issue with it during that period. Apart from a few cosmetic imperfections, due to wear and tear, it has continued to function perfectly. I'm now wondering if it will beat my previous Daewoo microwave for longevity, which kept going, trouble-free, for six years. Fingers crossed that I'll be back here in March 2016 with confirmation of a new record. Highly recommended!
It's now March 2014, and after four years of daily use I'm happy to report that our Daewoo microwave is still working perfectly. Apart from the previously mentioned cosmetic wear and tear (which is slight, and to be expected) we haven't experienced a single problem with the oven since the day we purchased it. Needless to say, I continue to highly recommend it!
Here I go again... March 2015 and still going strong. This is a Duracell Bunny of a microwave. Only a year to go before it equals the life of my previous Daewoo microwave which lasted six years. A fantastic product.
