The Samsung Contrabass Convection Microwave Oven Whispers Healthy Living Notes in a Large Capacity

Jul 05, 2013

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – July 5, 2013 – Extending the success of its SMART convection microwave oven with a built-in SMART Sensor Cooking function, Samsung Malaysia Electronics unveils the new Contrabass convection microwave oven (MC455) to incentivise more consumers to embrace healthy living.

The Contrabass MC455 45 litre volume ensures that consumers continue to create delectable meals for their families, but at a larger capacity, which comes in handy – especially during festive occasions. The new convection microwave oven's various cooking modes enable creative home cooks, ranging from microwave, convection and grill, and fermentation.

The Samsung Contrabass MC455 Smart Sense Technology allows consumers to prepare healthy and delicious meals through a built-in sensor. The sensor detects the humidity of the food surface, calculates the optimised cooking time and power before starting the cooking process.

"Samsung digital appliances are designed with astute consumers in mind, so that we can continue to offer them a fresh perspective in the home appliances space. Samsung's continuous effort in creating advanced innovations for all has resulted in our latest comprehensive range of digital appliances with enhanced features and high performance," said Kwon Jae Hoon, Managing Director, Samsung Malaysia Electronics Sdn. Bhd.

"Armed with breakthrough technologies and a deep understanding of different consumer needs and lifestyles, we hope to offer new living experiences for consumers by delivering effortless and convenient lifestyles," Kwon added.

Healthier Cooking Makes Healthier Families

To reinforce the ideology of healthy living, Samsung has fully coated the interior of the Contrabass MC455 convection microwave oven with ceramic enamel to protect foods from bacterial contamination. As tested by the Hohenstein Institute, a reputable international research and service centre in Germany, ceramic enamels offer a 99.9% anti-bacterial protection.

In fact, ceramic enamels are seven times more scratch and rust-resistant than other microwave cores. The scratch-free and solid surface of the interior does not discolour even after long usage. When coupled with Samsung's innovative feature – the Steam Clean – the Contrabass MC455 convection microwave oven becomes a state-of-the-art cooking device that creates scrumptious meals, and cleans easily without the need for any chemical detergents.

To elevate the user's experience, the Samsung Contrabass MC455 is loaded with additional features for simple user control, and smarter and more convenient cooking. First of all, a wide centred display allows users to easily view cooking options, while a dual dial control offers clear, concise user instruction – upper dial for mode selection, and lower dial for weight or time adjustment.

The Samsung Contrabass MC455 comes with accessories, so consumers need not worry about finding supplementary items before setting off on their cooking adventures. The wide ceramic tray is spacious and especially useful to cook items such as lasagnas and pies in convection modes. The tray's smooth and durable surface is easy to clean, to facilitate quick utensil turnaround for the next meal.

Avid bakers can now enjoy home-made bread and yoghurt, thanks to the fermentation feature incorporated into the convection microwave oven. The crusty plate is especially handy for the reheating of frozen foods like pizzas, so that they are as tasty and as crisp as when they were first ordered.

The Samsung Contrabass MC455 is available at all Samsung retail outlets and authorised dealers.
