Daewoo KOR6LBD Duo Plate Microwave 800 watts
on 13 April 2017
Takes up less space than our original microwave but is about the same size internally and is a lot lighter to move. Front panel is clear and has a useful 24 hr clock as well as timer settings. Defrost button can either be pressed once then weight of food to defrost can be entered via the hours minutes and seconds buttons (but this is grams so don't get confused) or you can press it twice and simply enter time to defrost in the same way. I found the defrost needed longer when entering weight but I supposed this will depend on the thickness of the food. I tried it with chicken breasts and it definitely required extra time to be fully defrosted. Has some useful pre-program functions already built in such as beverages and cooking various foods such as pasta, frozen pizza and has a power button with percentages so you can cook more slowly. Haven't used it a great deal yet but appears to work fine and the second plate shelf is a useful addition to heat two meals at once. Haven't tried this function yet but would assume you may have to stop half way through and swap plates around to get the same even cooking distance from the magnetron. The instruction book is clear and quite easy to read. We bought the white version of this microwave which is about £10 cheaper than the black version for some reason. Appears to work fine for the price paid.
