We have listed some of the most popular features that really make a difference on the functionality of a microwave to help you identify which one is a better fit for your needs:

  • Wattage Power: Represents the power of your microwave and impacts how quickly and evenly food cooks: the higher the voltage the more efficient and quicker your food preparation will be. If you require basic features for food preparation for one or two people, medium power should be enough. If you need microwave to help you prepare heavy dishes or in bulk, you may want to consider more power.

*Tip: Make sure your current wiring meets the wattage and amp requirements of the oven you choose. 

  • Quick Keys: 1-minute or 30-second key requires just a tap to extend the preset cooking time, maintain whichever power level that you selected. This feature allows for quick adjustments to your pre-existing settings without interruption.

  • Auto Menu: They take the guesswork out of cooking popular foods such as popcorn and frozen vegetables. You can easily select from the Auto Menu to cook your favorite dish.

  • Defrost: A popular feature that heats frozen food to help you expedite your cooking time

  • Grill Cooking: The heat generated in the microwave is brought to the surface of the plate so that you can enjoy crispy food in minutes as the grill function crisps your food on the outside without drying inside

  • Combi Cooking:Providing a combination of cooking capabilities which can include features like grilling, steaming and baking, which is great if you love to cook and want everything in one appliance.

  • Convection Cooking: The convection cooking transforms your microwave into a convection oven, which uses a heating element and a fan to evenly distribute heat throughout the appliance.

** A convection oven heats the food from the outside to higher temperatures than a microwave oven.

  • Pre-set Timer: This feature allows you to configure the cooking duration of your favorite dishes.

  • Child Safety Lock: Specially if there are children in the house, a lock function prevents children form opening the door of the microwave.

  • Accessories / Racks: These organize your cooking space so you can warm more food at once.

  • Easy to Clean: Interior coatings make cleanup easy. Simply wipe plastic interiors with a damp cloth. Stainless steel interiors also wipe clean and won’t absorb odors.

 Bottom Line: Microwave are essential in every kitchen to make our cooking routine easier and faster. Important to choose the one that fits in your kitchen design and has the features that will complement your lifestyle.
