Microwaves

We will shortly be launching a microwave ovens section to our website, covering and reviewing all of the latest microwaves and other kitchen appliances on the market.

A microwave oven is a kitchen appliance which has gained popularity over the last 30 years, becoming one of the main and most commonly used appliances in the average household kitchen. The modern microwave will often include a built in grill, and combi models will include the combination of an oven and grill together with the original microwave facility. These appliances are primarily used to cook and re-heat food – this is carried out via dielectric heating by electromagnetic radiation. This radiation causes any water molecules within the food to vibrate, and this energy helps to heat the item. As a result food tends to be evenly cooked, assuming the food has a uniform water content.

Microwaves come in three distinct categories, each providing slightly different features to the end user.

Solo Microwave Ovens

These solo microwave ovens are pretty basic in function, offering a variety of settings from defrost to high.  Primarily used for either heating up or cooking food, they are typically the cheapest form of microwave oven, with prices usually starting at round the £30 mark.  These microwaves don’t include traditional convection oven or grill functions.

Grill Microwave Ovens

Grill microwave ovens provide, as their name suggests, a microwave oven with the addition of a grill facility, enabling you to brown and crisp food as well as cook it conventionally via the microwave facility.  These kitchen appliances cost a little extra than the basic solo models, but are handy for those without room for a standard electric or gas grill.

Combi Microwave Ovens

The Combi stands for combination – essentially these appliances combine a traditional oven with a grill, as well as a microwave.  A combi microwave oven allows you to do everything from baking cakes, grilling food as well as making pies, stews, casseroles – they are incredibly versatile, providing a great deal of practicality from within a relatively small appliance.

Included in this section will be all of the latest solo, grill and combination microwaves available in the UK, in a variety of colours and specifications. Our listings will be fully searchable by colour, size, features, power rating and type – so if you’re looking to buy a microwave oven then you should be able to find the model to suit your kitchen. Each model features a full specification, so you can make sure it fits your kitchen, as well as provides the features you require.

Whether you’re after a cheap microwave, or looking for a top of the range combi model, you’ll find an appliance to suit your needs.
