This microwave determines if the popcorn is ready by listening to the frequency of the pops. This helps prevent burnt popcorn, but will still leave about 20% of the kernels unpopped. This isn’t a terrible result, given that many microwaves struggle to cook popcorn anyway. See More
Although microwaves are primarily used for reheating food and cooking simple snacks, this one does way more. It has a built-in convection unit and a grill, making this a very versatile appliance that can bake cakes, roast a chicken and make grilled sandwiches. It even has a reversible grill rack. See More
This microwave doesn’t have any control dials, knobs, or number pads. Instead, it uses nine touch sensitive buttons with a simple display. For standard reheating, you only need to press the start button to activate the microwave for 30 seconds. The rest of the buttons are clearly labeled and are meant for popcorn, power level or defrosting. See More
In addition to all the sensor-based microwave features, it also has convection and grill features. This allows you to cook food much like in a real oven. The convection and grill modes work exceptionally well and hardly differ in results with the actual ovens. See More
This microwave measures just 20 inches wide, 15 inches deep and 11 inches tall. This allows it to be used in tight spaces, like tiny kitchens, sheds, or caravans. Despite the small size, it still has 0.8 cu-ft. capacity, which is enough for a full-size dinner plate or a bowl. See More
A lockout function helps keep small children and anyone unfamiliar with this microwave safe. Press and hold the stop/clear button for three seconds to activate/deactivate the safety system. This also prevents the oven from operating while the door is open. See More
A lockout function helps prevent the microwave from being accidentally started and used by children. Press and hold the cancel/off button for three seconds to activate/deactivate the safety system. When the control panel is locked, the lock indicator will be lit. This also prevents the oven from operating while the door is open. See More
It has a zero-standby function which means there is zero power usage until it's actually turned on. It has a lower wattage (700w) compared to common microwaves running on 900w. This means you'll save more power compared to using traditional microwaves that you leave plugged in even when they're not in use. See More
Instead of number pads and multiple buttons common on traditional microwaves, the Daewoo only has a power button, four buttons around the timer screen to adjust for Popcorn, Power Level, Defrost, and Auto Cook, a knob to set the timer, stop/clear button and a start+30 sec button. It doesn't has complicated buttons and is very easy to use. See More
The dials are very easy to interpret and use, requiring little effort on the part of the user. Simply turn it to the power level you need, set the time and leave it be. You won’t have to struggle to figure out what buttons to push so that the microwave does what you need it to do. See More
With this microwave, you can reheat yesterday’s leftovers with excellent results. The built-in moisture sensors will determine how ready the food is. All you have to do is place the food in the oven and press the reheat button. The microwave will do the rest. See More
Unlike the reheating mode, the dedicated presets don't perform that well. While they also use a moisture sensor to cook the food, the microwave will almost always err towards undercooking the food. You can add a minute or two after the microwave has finished cooking, but that makes the automatic preset feature useless. See More
