The festive season is just around the corner and soon we’ll be feasting with family and friends! In typical Malaysian fashion, food is always the main attraction at any celebration and this Christmas holiday period is no different. Why spend all your time slaving over preparations? With the right tools, you’ll be out of the kitchen and back in the party in no time!
With Hot Blast, you’ll be blown away!
The Samsung Convection Microwave Oven can do it all!
In this fast-paced day and age, we expect all our smart devices to perform multiple tasks, so why should our microwave ovens be any different? The Samsung Convection Microwave Oven is a multi-faceted unit that boasts a myriad of functions—it can air fry, grill, bake, steam, and microwave.
This oven comes with a Crusty Plate, specially designed to heat up your food while preserving the crispy, crunchy elements of any dish. The structure of the plate is made to drain oil easily and if you’re looking for a healthy option, it can also be used without oil via the Air Fry or grill modes on the oven. This way, you can still enjoy a guilt-free meal as you chow down during the many meals the festive season is sure to bring.
This 35L all-in-one oven is a major powerhouse in the kitchen, thanks to its signature HotBlastTM technology, which is a brand-new way of cooking that reduces cooking time significantly. Powerful hot air is blown through multiple air-holes directly onto the food, so it’s evenly cooked with a crispy outside, and a juicy inside. This innovative technology combines both microwave and convection heat sources, resulting in significantly reduced cooking time.
Convenience is Key
Adding to the oven’s appeal is its durable ceramic enamel finish on the interior chamber which is scratch resistant and easy to clean. The smooth ceramic lends non-stick properties to the oven, meaning that splashes and spills will effortlessly slide off with a swift wipe—no elbow grease needed!
Preparing a delicious meal is made easy with the oven’s Auto Cook feature—all you have to do is assemble the ingredients and let the oven do the work. Simply choose from a range of pre-set cooking modes to prepare perfectly cooked dishes that are healthy, moist, and most importantly, full of flavour.
