Still availbale to buy at this price.
Is it 4K?
How many channels ?
Out of stock
It should be noted that Samsung sell this directly for 139 quid (possibly a sale price?), but are also out of stock at the moment. I've been researching combo microwave ovens in case my (huge 40L! Don't need one that big really...) Sharp dies on me and am very annoyed that the specs almost never mention the maximum temperature of the convection oven, but they *always* quote the microwave power!

This model is no different - had to do some serious Google-fu to find out it only does 200C max - my Sharp does 250C, so anything less than about 240C I would consider a downgrade. For me, the word "microwave" is synonymous with "cook as fast as possible", so I want the highest microwave wattage and convection oven temps (plus the ability to use both at once!). I never use less than 100% power as you've probably guessed (even when defrosting - no namby-pamby slow auto-defrost for me!).

So far, I've only found 2 combo microwave ovens that do 900W+ and 250C - my Sharp and an interesting 300 quid Panny with inverter tech (no turntable) and a pull down door which is a good idea that I'm surprised more microwaves don't do. I know Amazon have an Alexa microwave out in the US - I think being able to talk to your microwave is a good idea: tell it the food you're putting in (state if it's frozen if it is), it should then use the food type plus humidity and weight sensors to calculate the cooking time. Sadly, the Alexa microwave is a puny 700W, not a combo and doesn't have any sensors :-(

We have bought this one instead... how does it compare?

I appreciate it wont be the same level as a £300 plus microwave.

**Edit** - Its also worth noting that our previous microwave was only 20L and we only realised it had a grill feature last night after havint it 4 years... We tried to use the grill last night and it set on fire, probably due to all of the crap stuck in the grill vent

The price is very good on that Kenwood for a combi, but it has a 230C max temp for the convection oven (admittedly that's as good as or better than most combis) and its idea of "combination" cooking - again like a lot of combis - is microwave+grill only. My Sharp also does microwave+convection, but annoyingly limits the microwave to 30% power in that case (maybe to stop things getting too hot?).

I never use the grill on my Sharp - too much faffing with the grill rack and the big clean-up needed afterwards if you're doing meat/burgers/sausages. I use a teflon sheet (cut to the max size I'll need) in my microwave and just clean that if it gets dirty - the sheet cools very quickly and can be removed with food almost straight after the oven stops without needing a towel or oven gloves.

One slight annoyance with the Sharp is that after the convection oven timer hits zero, the fans continue to run for 2 mins afterwards to cool it down. Since I'm almost never in the kitchen when that happens, the bell dings for completion are drowned out and I don't realise the time is up until the fans finally turn off 2 mins later.
Still on offer and in stock on the Samsung site. Plus I belong the Perkz discount scheme so got another 15% off. Unfortunately the cashback offer on the Samsung site has finished..
