How to choose the best microwave

A microwave is a common appliance in many households. It can be handy to quickly warm up a dinner later in the evening, cook beans or to make more complicated meals. The best microwaves make light work of heating and defrosting, and you can rely on them to cook and thaw food properly. Some Microwaves double up as mini ovens which can be handy if you are trying to cook a lot with only a small oven space.

You may assume that the best microwaves will be the most expensive but this is not always the case. Each microwave had a power rating in KW’s. The higher this rating is the quicker it will be to cook, or warm food. To truly find out which microwave is best for you, you need to do your research and read plenty of reviews. For simply tasks such as cooking a jacket potatoes, reheating food and defrosting, a standalone microwave is probably the best option. If you want to be able to do a bit more such as roast or brown food, then you will probably find a combi microwave (which combines a conventional microwave, grill and oven in one), the best. These are usually more expensive but has a vast amount of functions available. They are often a little hard to use to start with, but once you learn how to do each of the cooking styles, it can make life a lot easier.
