Best Microwaves

If you’re looking to buy a new microwave, then how do you decide which one will be the best microwave for you?

Firstly you need to establish which kind of microwave you need.  A solo microwave will provide just the microwave facility.  A grill microwave provides the addition of an electric grill feature, and a combi microwave provides both of those features with the addition of a convection oven.

The next step would be to read some microwave reviews, and pick up on any weak points, faults or criticisms that certain models may have.

Thirdly, make sure the manufacturer of the microwave is a well known brand, and that they offer a decent after sales support service.  Also check that spare parts for the microwave are readily available – such as the bulb, and the glass turntable.  This will help avoid problems later on, and ultimately mean you will be getting better value for money, simply as your microwave’s life span will be increased significantly.

Bear in mind that virtually every microwave on the marketplace will have negative reviews – people are statistically more likely to write a review if they are disappointed with a product than if they are satisfied.  Also bear in mind that a tiny percentage of all products will fail, and so one bad review is not necessarily indicative of a microwave being poorly made, especially if it is countered by dozens of positive reviews.  However, if a certain model has several negative reviews all highlighting the same issues, then the microwave in question is probably best avoided.

Also, just because a microwave is discounted and listed as cheap, doesn’t mean it is a bargain.  It may feature an artificially inflated RRP to make the microwave seem more of a bargain than it actually is, or it might simply be bankrupt stock without much in the way of a warranty

Lastly, make sure that the microwave in question is designed for your needs – if your eyesight is poor, then you’re best off looking to purchase a microwave with larger buttons and icons for example.

To summarise, choose the type of microwave most suited to your needs, that is made by a well known manufacturer, with decent after sales support, and as few negative reviews as possible.  This will help eliminate a bad purchase, and save you from having the hassle of having to arrange any returns or ordering spare parts.
