Comment:
Died after two years and despite numerous complaints Samsung will not service this product. I bought a house with a full Samsung kitchen set. Fit and finish is mediocre and clearly the electronics are not durable.

Comment:
Lacks express setting. It takes 3 key presses to set and start 2 minutes of cooking without express, 1 key press with it. CR says this unit should be reasonably quiet, mine is loud.
