Microwave technology has developed over recent years, with some models featuring an incorporated grill or fan oven, giving you more flexibility than ever before. They can vary in function and size, with solo, combi, and microwave grill models emerging on the market.
Basic models will have a setting for weight and temperature, while more advanced models allow you to select pre-set cooking times – this is all reflected in the price range. They’re also energy efficient and economical if you want to heat small amounts of food quickly, while different sizes allow you to fit in larger kitchenware. Microwaves are perfect if you’re short on space, and some models can be integrated to fit in with your kitchen units. Just bear in mind you’ll need a gap of 15 cm above and behind your appliance for ventilation if it’s sitting on your countertop.
