Daewoo KOG3000SL Features

The Daewoo KOG3000SL stainless steel microwave with grill is a fairly basic model. It doesn’t come with the extras of more expensive models, but considering the low price this is to be expected.

This is an 800W microwave which means it should cook food relatively quickly. The 20L capacity probably isn’t large enough for big families, but is perfect for small kitchens. The grill of the Daewoo KOG3000SL provides greater variety in the food you can cook, and the 1050W grill power should be enough for most applications.

We’re not sure about the stainless steel, curved edge design of the Daewoo KOG3000SL. While some people might love it, the small viewing window and front panel layout make the microwave appear quite dated in promotional material. This isn’t a major issue though, and the microwave certainly isn’t ugly.

Overview of features:

  • 800W compact microwave
  • Stainless steel design
  • Dual wave system for more efficient cooking
  • Ten microwave power levels
  • Automatic defrost function
  • Automatic cook menus
  • Safety lock
  • Kitchen timer
  • 1050W Grill

Daewoo KOG3000SL Reviews

The Daewoo KOG3000SL has received mainly positive reviews on sites such as Asda.com. The general consensus seems to be that this is a basic microwave and is a useful model, but for just a bit more money you can get a microwave with more features. Examples of an alternative is the powerful  Panasonic NN-GD371SBPQ.

Pros of the Daewoo KOG3000SL according to reviewers:

  • Grill is a bonus considering the microwave is a similar price to solo ovens
  • Easy to use and well designed
  • Attractive design that suits most kitchen designs
  • Reviewers mentioned that the microwave looks far better in real life than it does in promotional images
  • Excellent value for money considering the low price
  • Relatively fast cooking speed

Cons according to reviewers:

  • No grill plate included
  • Dial can only be set in 10 second increments
  • One reviewer mentions that it would be a bonus if the interior was stainless steel for easy cleaning.
  • Can be difficult to see food when cooking due to the coloured window.

Daewoo KOG3000SL Conclusion

The Daewoo KOG3000SL stainless steel 800W microwave with grill is a good budget option if you want more versatility than a solo microwave. With its efficient cooking speed, powerful grill and auto defrost/cook menus, you can’t really go wrong at this price. If your budget can stretch further you may want to consider the Russell Hobbs digital microwave with grill or Whirlpool Max 38.
