Summary: Bought new, I infrequently used this microwave for 2 years. It worked "ok." It was not the fastest cooking microwave, it's small, it cooks unevenly, the turntable is poorly designed, and the presets are bogus. I would have given this microwave a 2.5-3 star rating until the fatefully day when it exploded. I placed a mug of warm water in the microwave; put the timer to 2:00; and, within 10 seconds I smelled smoke, burning plastic, and hot metal.
Summary: We bought one at walmart & it worked fairly well.Then it started to shut off when we used it for more than a few minutes. It is only 4 months old & walmart refuses to exchange it & dawoo refuses to answer the phone when we call for warranty service! I reccomend you never buy this or any other product from these people!
Summary: Bought this Daewoo microwave to replace a Panasonic model that lasted about 5 years. The Daewoo blew out this summer, leaving burn marks inside. While the turntable stopped working, the unit was still able to heat food up so we kept using it--that is until yesterday when it blew up again. From the smell I thought there was a fire in the kitchen. Surprisingly, the clock still works. Can't believe they sold this junk at Costco...good thing for their return policy though.
Why are there so many crappy reviews. This machine is awesome!

Summary: bought this microwave at Costco nearly 6 years ago. We use it daily and it has been wonderful. I love it and i am saddened that i can't really purchase one in any of the stores near where I live. It was a cheep microwave, had buttons even my daughter could figure out to cook foods she is allowed to warm up and it was wonderful. When it did go it went in a blaze of glory.
Summary: I have read a few reviews her about this item and I have to say that mine has been in use quite sometime, first by a lady who bought and second ly by me, at least three years. It is a mid sized microwave made for larger family meals, has a 1.1 capcity interior which is actually too big for me I would do better with a .07, as a single person just heating things. All it's components have worked perfectly and no complaints at all.
Summary: I came across this microwave when I was looking for a cheaper one in the store. I did not know much about this product and the company that time. But I still bought it since it was cheap and it seemed to be a good one to me. I have been using it for more than 3 years now. I do heavy use of it almost on daily basis, starting from warming up the food to cooking rice. I never had any issue with it yet. It is very powerful, still it is a mid-size microwave.
Worked well, for just 11 Months. Then went pop. Poor quality

Summary: While it worked it done the job well. However after 11 months it has stopped working, the food doesn't heat at all but the microwave outer casing gets very hot. The build quality is not there at all with this piece.
Summary: As a microwave, excellent value for the money, but after only seven months has begun to rust like hell inside. My ex-wife bought one around the same time, and hers is rusting in exactly the same way, leaving razor sharp flakes of white enamel you can cut yourself on when cleaning inside it if not careful. If the inside had been stainless steel, it would have been superb.
