Microwaves are extremely beneficial for quick cooking and exceptionally fast defrosting times. Many foods can be cooked in the microwave so they can be ready in moments. Using a microwave means that you won't let out heat to the room like an oven would, and they are much easier to clean. Microwaves can make a safe alternative to an oven or be an additional feature so you can enjoy a range of different cooking techniques

Countertop Microwave

One of the most common types of microwave is a countertop microwave. These can be located on any convenient surface as long as they are in the vicinity of a plug socket for power. Countertop microwaves can be moved as necessary and can be manoeuvred so that you can clean around and underneath the microwave.

Built-in microwave

Designed for fitted kitchens, when purchasing a built-in microwave, it is essential to check the measurements carefully to ensure it fits in your required space. Built-in microwaves offer the benefit of being seamless in your kitchen design and not taking up any of your workspaces. Built-in microwaves come in a range of different fronts so you can find one that suits your kitchen design.

Combination microwave

Offering the best of both worlds, a combination microwave uses both microwaves and hot air to cook your food. This means food can cook quickly from the microwaves that penetrate the food but the convection air means that it can help to add cooked colour to your meal, such as browning the top of a dish.

Many brands produce microwaves such as Samsung, Russell Hobbs and Sharp. You can find your perfect microwave by choosing your favourite appliance brand or by selecting the level of power you require from your microwave. As with all appliances, the design will play a factor in your decision, but fortunately, you'll be able to find a colour that suits your kitchen décor.
