Daewoo KOR6N9RC Review

It's cream - there aren't many cream microwaves available! That said, the KOR6N9RC also works well, and is reasonably priced. The KOR6N9RC's display could be a little brighter - however it is still pretty legible.

Our Daewoo KOR6N9RC Microwave Review

Daewoo KOR6N9RC

The Daewoo KOR6N9RC is one of the few cream microwaves available on the market - if you're after a microwave oven to match the rest of your cream kitchen appliances, then your choice is slightly limited. This particular model provides a fairly standard capacity of 20 litres, and offers 800w of power.  Externally it measures 27.9cm by 46.5cm by 38.2cm - and so should suit even the most modest sized kitchens. As a solo microwave, the KOR6N9RC doesn't feature a built in grill or convection oven - however considering the specification we feel it is fairly reasonably priced at around £65 at the time of writing.  The microwave's display is reasonably sized, but could do with being a touch brighter - in sunlight it can be a little difficult to read - a minor complaint.  In normal conditions our testers found it to be perfectly legible.  In terms of features, the Daewoo KOR6N9RC provides a few handy additions:  Firstly the Autocook and one-touch cook menus - these include a useful auto defrost setting, which our testers found to be fairly accurate during the testing period.  These settings help to take the guess work out of cooking, and help avoid over or under cooking your dishes.  As with most modern microwaves, the KOR6N9RC also provides a child lock facility, which helps to avoid accidents with inquisitive little fingers.  The power saving mode enables the microwave to enter an Eco mode upon ten minutes of inactivity, which uses less electricity and is more environmentally friendly, saving you money from your power bills.  Overall the Daewoo KOR6N9RC looks attractive - this model is also available in a variety of different colours, such as red, purple and black, should you not like the cream colour scheme, so there's plenty of choice.  The design is slightly retro - and will appeal to those with a 50's style kitchen - overall we liked the aesthetics - it's a refreshing change from the usual modern themed microwaves on the UK market.  In particular the handle's design appears to be based upon the iconic fridge design of the 1950s, with it's striking chrome colour scheme contrasting with the cream of the main body of the Daewoo KOR6N9RC microwave.

The KOR6N9RC's controls were easy to use and fairly well labelled - and as such this appliance will be suitable for the elderly - the small size of this cream microwave means it's probably best suited to smaller families and households.  As with most Daewoo microwaves, the KOR6N9RC comes with a 1 year warranty for added peace of mind, should any issues arise.  The Daewoo KOR6N9RC worked well whilst in use, and cooked evenly - we did not noticed any uncooked areas or cold spots during the testing period.  It heats up fast thanks to it's 800w power output, and our testers were impressed by the overall performance and build quality.  In short, the KOR6N9RC is a basic solo microwave which offers reliability and performance for an impressively low price tag.

Our Verdict for the Daewoo KOR6N9RC

The KOR6N9RC is an easy to use cream coloured retro looking Daewoo microwave, priced at around £65.  If 20 litres is a large enough capacity for your needs, then we'd recommend the Daewoo KOR6N9RC - it performed very well in our tests, and we feel it's offers excellent value.  If you're after a economical yet effective solo microwave, then the KOR6N9RC comes highly recommended.

Daewoo KOR6N9RC Microwave Customer Reviews

"I was looking to buy a new cream microwave to match my redecorated kitchen. I don't use the microwave that often, just usually for reheating and cooking basic dishes - my main criteria was finding a microwave that fitted in, looked slightly traditional, but worked well. I didn't need a combi microwave, as this seemed a bit excessive as it wouldn't get much use, and a grill model would probably end up unused too. I eventually settled on the Daewoo KOR6N9RC - I think the C denotes the cream colour scheme, as they do several similar looking solo microwave ovens in a range of different colours. It's pretty well constructed, and is a slightly off white cream colour (as opposed to a more yellow cream). The retro design appealed to both myself and my wife - it shouldn't date too much. In terms of operation, we found it simple to use. The KOR6N9RC's controls are well marked, so you shouldn't have to check the manual, and the round display illuminates brightly. It heats up fast, with it's 800 watts, and despite the pretty modest 20 litre volume, it still fitted all of our round dishes. Overall my wife and I were satisfied with our purchase - it is pretty good value, looks smart and does it's job." Jason, Norwich

"I needed a new microwave as the old one was producing much heat, being around ten years old! Our kitchen now has cream coloured cabinets, so thought I'd look for a microwave oven to match. I've had a few Daewoo products over the years, and for the most part they've been reliable - thought I'd try one of their solo microwaves as it was in my price range, looked stylish, and was cream coloured. The KOR6N9RC is straight forward to use, is reasonably priced and heats up dishes considerably faster than the model it was replacing. It suits my kitchen quite well, with a traditional look to it which gives the impression of a 50's appliance, but with modern technology. It's not the biggest microwave, so if you're after a large model, then maybe it's not the oven for you - for everyone else it should be fine. I'm pretty happy overall, and would happily recommend this microwave to my friends." Claire, Newcastle

"My friend noticed that the Daewoo KOR6N9RC was in a sale, and knew I was looking for a cheap microwave for my new flat, so recommended it to me. It just a basic model, so doesn't have a grill or oven, but it does heat up and cook food as a regular microwave. It doesn't take up much room on my kitchen side, which is a bonus as I don't have the largest of kitchens, so didn't want a bulky microwave taking up all of my free space. It's a creamy colour, which matches my tiling, and feels solid to touch. I've had it for around a year now, and it still works as well as it did out of the box, can't criticise it. If you're looking to buy a cheap microwave that works, then the Daewoo KOR6N9RC is worth the cash." Hazel, London

  1. Jackie Stimpson

    We have just purchased a Daewoo KOR-6N9RC cream microwave and used it for the first time to cook jacket potatoes for 14 minutes. All worked well but the door appears to have condensation trapped inside the front glass – this does not appear to be clearing. Condensation was present on the inside of the microwave as we would have expected but easily wiped away. We are unable to reach the condensation trapped in what appears to the thin glass on the front door. Could you please let us know if this is normal and will eventually clear or if there could be a fault with our particular microwave.

    Many thanks

      Hi Jackie

      Daewoo state on their website:

      http://www.daewooelectronics.co.uk/daewoo-support-details.aspx?folderguid=0039D237-8626-41AE-9D67-8F347C0C3B26&itemguid=EC303F16-1421-47BC-B6B4-E7BEAAC821CC

      “There is water/moisture in the microwave oven. If you cook food with a high water content, such as jacket potatoes, it will produce moisture/condensation, which can lay in the cavity well. This needs to be dried out fully after each use.” – so I presume this is an ongoing issue which they are aware of – it might be worth contacting them to see if they can offer any advice.

      Hope this helps :)
