Heat without drying

So often we need to keep food warm when we are entertaining, or for partners and children coming home late. Look for microwaves with food warming technology that either keeps your food warm (at 50C) or hot (70C) for up to one hour, without drying it. Samsung's Smart Sensor measures the level of moisture in the food, and adjusts both temperature and time to help ensure deliciously prepared dishes — no more tough, dried-out food.
