The Kenwood K25MMS12 black microwave oven is a powerful, large solo model with an attractive black design. It’s certainly a contemporary microwave when it comes to appearance, but does it provide enough features to justify its relatively high price tag? Keep reading our Kenwood K25MMS12 review to find out.

Kenwood K25MMS12 Features

The Kenwood K25MMS12 microwave is designed to bring convenience to any kitchen. It features a large 25L capacity, making it suitable for families or those who regularly cook big quantities of food.  While large dinner plates probably won’t fit, the K25MMS12 is capable of cooking much more food than a standard 20L microwave.

It’s also a 900W model, meaning it cooks food quickly and efficiently. If you’re used to using an 800W microwave, then the extra power of the Kenwood K25MMS12 will almost certainly be noticeable.

Other features include a digital timer, six microwave power levels and automatic cooking programs. This means you can use preset programs to cook certain types of food. The microwave also comes with jog control and a glass turntable.

  • Powerful 900W microwave
  • 25L interior capacity

Kenwood K25MMS12 Reviews

The Kenwood K25MMS12 900W black microwave currently has a relatively high average rating on Reevoo. This shows that buyers are generally happy with their purchase. The microwave scored particularly highly in the “ease of use,” “capacity” and “value for money” categories.

Positive comments according to reviewers:

  • Cooks food quickly with the 900W power output
  • Provides value for money despite the relatively high price tag
  • Simple to use
  • Wide range of settings for different types of food
  • Attractive design

Negative comments according to reviewers:

  • Lightweight construction so sometimes slides on the work surface
  • Beep continues until the door is opened
  • The top of the microwave has vents, meaning it can’t be used as a storage shelf


The Kenwood K25MMS12 black microwave is an attractive and powerful model. If you need a relatively large capacity, and want to cook and reheat food quickly, then this could be a model to consider. Alternatives include the Russell Hobbs RHM2561BCG combination oven and the Sharp R82STMA combination microwave.
