Distributor Apuro has introduced the low-cost Samsung semi-commercial microwave oven to "fill the gap between light-duty domestic models and more expensive, larger commercial microwaves". The Samsung Superlite CM1039K has a power output of 1,000w and has a black metal outer cabinet and stainless steel inner cavity. Apuro says it is "designed to withstand the demand of a semi-commercial environment" and is suitable for small cafés, where microwaves are not the main source of cooking.

The Superlite has large, manual-dial controls for power and timer settings and five power levels to offer versatility in cooking. It has three cooking levels from 500 to 1,000 watts, plus two defrost settings. The pull-open door has a large display window. No special wiring is necessary as it plugs straight in to a standard 13-amp socket.
