Samsung is a well-known manufacturer of a wide range of consumer electronics in the United States and globally. The company is well known for its ability to put products that look stunningly good and package them with some of the best features around.

The Samsung ME21K7010DG black stainless over-the-range microwave stays true to this reputation and is one of the best microwaves that you can get from the manufacturer. With a 2.1 cu ft capacity, it’s easily able to prepare many large volume meals, making it best suited for large families.

Anyone looking around for the best Samsung microwave might have to glance at it before making any final decisions, and if you get to the end of this review, we’ll show you why.

Why We Like It – Samsung Black Stainless Microwave

The ME21K7010DG Samsung Black Stainless Microwave might be slightly costlier than your regular microwave, but it’s got a large capacity, sleek look, and a bunch of awesome features that’ll make it well worth your while.

  • Fingerprint resistant stainless steel body
  • Sensor cooking options
  • Large 2.1 Cubic Feet capacity
  • Slightly expensive

Power & Performance

Similar to the Samsung ME19R7041FG, the Samsung ME21K7010DG microwave has about 1000 Watts in power output, meaning it’s capable of cooking up a wide variety of foods within a very short period. The Samsung MG11H2020CT also has the same wattage, but the only significant difference between the two is that the latter is installed over your cooktop. At the same time, the former is a countertop microwave. With both microwaves, you’ll be able to adjust the cooking power by up to 10 levels or even rely on sensor cooking to choose the best settings with which to prepare your meal.


Like most home appliances, including the Panasonic Stainless Steel microwave, this black stainless steel Samsung microwave comes with a 1-year warranty that covers both its parts and labor, so in case your unit starts misbehaving within the first year of use, all you have to do is reach out to customer care, and they’ll have you sorted out. Keeping it clean is also easy to do thanks to its fingerprint-resistant black stainless steel body, and its ceramic enamel interior, which you’ll find on most Samsung microwaves, is super smooth and never really scratches or cracks.

Ease of Use

Being an over-the-range microwave, the touch key panel is almost at the base of the microwave door to allow for easy reach. This is pretty different from that of the Samsung MC12J8035CT, which has its control panel on its top part. All the touch keys on the ME21K7010DG microwave are well labeled with an easy-to-read font, so you shouldn’t have any problems figuring out which button does what. The 2.1 cu ft countertop microwave also has sensor cooking, where after you put in the food you need prepared, the microwave will calculate how long to cook it for and at what cooking power.

Added Features & Versatility

As an over-the-range microwave, the Samsung ME21K7010DG is fitted with a 4-speed 400 CFM Vent Fan, which is great for eliminating any steam or smoke from your cooktop. Unlike the Samsung – 1.6 Cu. Ft. Over-the-Range Microwave – Stainless steel, it also comes with a grilling element, which is excellent for preparing crispy food. You’ll also be able to defrost your frozen foods by either time or weight, which is a great option to have when you’re not sure what instructions you need to input.


The fingerprint-resistant black stainless steel Samsung microwave is well suited to handle most of your cooking needs. On top of that, it’s got an eco mode that you can switch to reduce or lower the rate and level of energy consumption. The microwave is also very well designed and should add a very modern look to your kitchen. If you want value for money, the GE Profile microwave retailing at over $500 may be considered expensive by most standards. Still, it also delivers the kind of value you’d expect from a $500 microwave.

Samsung Black Stainless Microwave Wrap Up

You’ll only be able to get this Samsung microwave in black color, and while this may be disappointing to some people, we think this is the only color that brings out the best of the microwave. You’re also welcome to have a look at the microwave’s Amazon page to find out what other first-time users had to say about it and see if it’ll still be worth considering.
