Anybody who have used either of one of these microwave oven with grill and convection ?

Which is the better brand in terms of ease of use and trouble free.

Samsung has enamel coating, it this good ?

Any other brand that is superior to Panasonic or samsung ?

We've been using a Panasonic microwave oven with convection and grill features since 1998...10 years on, it's still going working fine. I would go for Panasonic.

Best bet is to go for Panasonic.After sales service is reliable in the remote chance of malfunction their service centre is at shah Alam near Sri Muda.
have used Panasonic and find them user friendly and trouble free.Get the right size or you will have a white elephant sitting and occupying space.Serious cooking or just food reheating,that is what you should think about.

:pI use Sharp, that has microwave oven with grill and convection
It has been with us for 15 years, only recently giving problems.
Samsung was not a known brand when we were shopping for MV ovens way back then.
Today while looking for the sharp replacement, I notice price plays a very important part in my choice.
Good mv ovens cost thousand plus.
To me good is well constructed, easily clean and able to stand abuse.
Why I say able to stand abuse is because I have seen some mv ovens on display with knobs missing,
or door handles broken
or door coming off its hinge.
Some have casing cracks.
To think, in this forum some people scare of the radiation from handphone!

I do use a lot of samsung electrical appliances,
but this time I skip and go for panasonic.
err...one of the high end with stainless steel casing.

Sadly but true at the end of the day most of us use the microwave just to reheat or defrost..so why spend so much on an Microwave if this is going to be utimately the purpose.
Any brand will do.

Any brand will do.Quite correct but do choose one that has good service and is well built!

For me the mv oven is not just for reheating or defrosting, even though I also have an electric oven that comes with the stove.
So my choice will also takes in account of the other features like grill, steam and convection.
And because of small kids, safety features.

i use a samsung microwave. had it for about 2 years now. i have no problems with it. i love the simple one touch function keys for the commonly used cooking methods and timing.

Finally one user using samsung. :)

Did you buy the model with the blue enamel internal coating which is supposed to be easier to clean ? Is this claim true ?

mine doesn't have any blue enamel internal coating. mine is just normal white internal. i use my microwave quite a bit. i just wipe the internal walls with a soft piece of cloth every week or so and it's fine. sometimes i just put a glass of diluted lemon juice and turn the microwave on for a while to get rid of the smells and stuff. that's all.

I just bought my panasonic microwave since most users here like panasonic.

I've a question, everytime I switch on the power, the microwave is at full blast 100%, this will fry all my food to DARK CHARCOAL because I forgot to lower the power at 50% several times already !

How to set it such that I don't have to change it after switching off and on the power ?

Our family also uses Samsung. I have had it since 1999 and still no issues.

Recommended due to 'cheaper pricing' than others such as Panasonic/Sanyo.

I prefer separate! Oven, micro and grill. Else you run into the spork syndrome...a contraption that attempts to be spoon and fork and knife at the same time but isn't really good at anything....and in one breaks, you're out of all three.... same with those combined fax, printer and scanner monstrosities....if one piece breaks your out of the other 2 as well...
