A party at home? Does your menu have cupcakes or delectable cherry pies for desserts? How about your favourite spaghetti bolognese or shawarma for the main course? If you want to make all of this yourself at home and not keep ordering from a restaurant, all you need to do is buy a microwave. Rest assured it is going to be the best thing that happened between your family meals!

Obviously, you’d want to buy the best microwave ovens brand/model available in India so you can metamorphose into a professional chef. Here’s a simple buying guide so you can choose the ideal model for your family.

Kinds of microwaves

Most brands have microwaves in three types: convection, grill and solo type. The convection microwave has a heating element and a fan to ensure the food is cooked or browned uniformly. If you intend on baking a lot, you should use a convection model. This type is also ideal if you are cooking food that needs to be crisp both inside and outside.

Grill microwaves are ideal to cook your favourite kebabs or chicken tikkas. If you love making parathas, you should pick a grill microwave, which has a metal wire rack, and keeps food crisp. A rotisserie is for those who cook a lot of meat; the rotisserie allows food to be cooked evenly while lending a roasted flavour. This is ideal for those who cook large pieces of meat, for instance chicken. Don’t buy it if your frequency of eating meat is low, or if you are a small family that doesn’t entertain much or doesn’t eat large quantities of meat.

Go solo

A solo type microwave oven is a basic model which you can use to reheat, bake and cook. It also helps defrost stuff from the refrigerator. The solo microwave has a turntable which distributes heat evenly. This is ideal for a young working couple, who use the microwave a lot for reheating or basic cooking on a busy working day.

 While buying a microwave, you should also ascertain whether you want to place it on your kitchen counter or built it into your modular kitchen. When you use a countertop, you can move around the microwave, depending on availability of space on the kitchen platform. In the range microwave, the gadget is integrated into the cabinets, and ensures that the aesthetics of the kitchen stay the same way. It lends a neat look to your kitchen.

Price factor
