With a Samsung microwave you will never go wrong

THE Samsung ME21F707MJT over-the-range microwave has standard features and a stainless steel design and is a good choice for a solid and basic microwave.

By detecting the moisture in your food, sensors automatically adjust the cooking time so your food reaches the perfect temperature. This over-the-stove microwave has more sensor options than many models we reviewed. The sensor cooking includes settings for popcorn, pizza, potatoes, veggies and frozen foods. And the sensor reheat brings your leftovers back up to temperature, ensuring that foods like pasta will not be dry or overdone.

Several auto cycles are programmed for specific foods. Auto defrost will take care of your frozen beef, chicken, pork and fish. There are presets for softening butter and cream cheese, melting butter or chocolate, and kids’ snacks like chicken nuggets, French fries and pocket sandwiches. The keep-warm setting makes sure that your food is waiting for you at the perfect temperature if you aren’t ready to eat right away. Unfortunately, it does not offer convection cooking, so you can’t bake with it.

This built-in microwave has an average-sized exterior and a larger interior capacity than most – 2.1 cubic feet – which is always helpful. You get one cooking rack to increase your cooking space, and you can turn off the turntable if the dish you are cooking is oversized or extra heavy.

The over-range microwave has a strong power level of 1,000 watts. In case you need to cook certain items with more than one power level, this microwave offers multi-stage cooking. You can program up to two cycles with any one of the 10 power levels for a specific time, and the microwave will automatically adjust the power level while your food is cooking. If you know best how much power and how long your favorite item needs, you can program the custom-cook button.

Clearing the air at 400 cubic feet per minute and at four different speeds, the ventilation system in this model is second to none on our lineup. It can move air to the exterior of your home, but if your kitchen can’t support exterior venting, this over-the-range microwave oven still filters and recirculates polluted air in the kitchen, and it even starts clearing the air automatically when it detects too much heat, steam or smoke radiating from your stovetop.

This microwave is available only in stainless steel, which means it doesn’t fit every kitchen’s color scheme. The manufacturer offers a solid warranty, with the standard one year on parts and labor and a full 10-year warranty on the magnetron, the main cooking component in your microwave.
