Best Microwave Oven in India 2020 – Buyer’s Guide

Before staring the buyer’s guide first we need to know want are types of microwave oven are available in the market and their usefulness.

Types of microwave oven

There are three types of microwave oven that are available in the market i.e, solo, grill, and convection. Where a solo microwave oven is the basic microwave oven, a grill microwave oven is one step up from a solo microwave oven and a convection microwave oven top-level microwave oven. All these types of microwave oven can be distinguished by their features.

Solo Microwave Oven

Solo microwave ovens are the entry-level microwave oven. This type of microwave ovens mainly uses to quickly reheat foods, defrost frozen fruits, defrost frozen meats, etc. Even you can cook food in a solo microwave oven but your food will not cook evenly as it does in grill and convection micro oven.

Due to fewer features and low wattage solo micro oven are comparatively lower price than grill and convection microwave oven. In India, you can get a solo microwave oven in between 4000 – 8000 rupees. Price completely depends on watt power and oven capacity.

Solo microwave oven emits electromagnetic radiation which pass through glass or plastic bowl to cook food. In simple, Solo micro oven convert energy into heat to cook food.

Solo microwave oven power consumption level can be in between 700 -1400 watts. As we know more wattage means more quickly cook food. Wattage can be increase according capacity.

Solo microwave oven can be found on domestic kitchen as well as commercial shops.

Grill Microwave Oven

As I said earlier grill Microwave oven are one step up from solo microwave oven. As its has all the basic microwave oven features with additionally it has a grill heater to grill your food.

So with a Grill Microwave oven, you don’t need to buy an outdoor grill. This type of micro oven is very popular in India, as most of the people don’t have enough outdoor space to set up a grill machine, but will this microwave oven they can taste grilled chicken, fish from your kitchen.

Using Grill microwave oven you can do all the cooking that you did in solo microwave oven and now you can grill your chicken, fish, etc.

Grill microwave ovens power consumption’s are in between 900 watts -1700 watts. Like solo microwave oven, here watt power increase means, increase in microwave capacity and price. One thing keeps in mind, Here I describe only the power consumption range. A microwave oven Power consumption and output emission both are not the same. Power input and output completely vary on product capacity, features, brands, etc.

Grill microwave oven price is slightly higher than the solo micro oven and lower than convection microwave oven.

In grill microwave oven you can do power grill, plus combo grill, turntable on/off. Where the power grill does only the grilling part, plus combo grill do grilling and microwave simultaneously. Even for grilling, you can off turntable.

Convection Microwave Oven

Convection microwave ovens are the most powerful and most featured micro oven among all other types of the microwave oven. It has solo and grill microwave oven features and a different kind of heater and fan to cook food evenly. In words, a convection microwave oven is a small oven that can cook many types of food quickly. Convection microwave oven is very popular for baking cake, baking cookies, bread, etc.

Convection microwave oven power consumption is in between 900 watts – 2000 watts. Even you may found some more powerful microwave. Like grill and solo microwave oven convection microwave oven price is not directly depends on power consumption and capacity.

Convection microwave oven price is slightly higher than the grill microwave oven. This type of microwave oven has so many features, so you can do many different types of cooking.

Power consumption – While discussing types of microwave oven I already discuss how much power consumes each type of microwave oven. as we know higher wattage means faster cooking. So if you want faster cooking then go for a higher wattage microwave oven. As per my recommendation, anything in between 800W-2000W is enough to do all the cooking stuff. Choose a 500W-800W microwave oven iff when you are looking for a solo oven to do only reheating and defrost like stuff.

Auto cook – Generally auto cook feature is not avilable in lower end microwave ovens. Auto cook features means where you don’t need to set cooking time or temperature. All you have to do just choose your desire dish name, it will cook automatically.

Timer – Timer is the most essential part of any microwave oven. Timer gives you the power to set how much time you are going to cook this product whether its 30 seconds or 3 minutes.

Size & Capacity – Microwave oven capacity completely depends on no. of members in your family have. Sometimes kitchen space plays a vital role when size matters. In India countertop or tabletop microwave oven are very popular. Because a built-in microwave oven might cost you around 50000 rupees. whereas by spending around 15000 rupees you can get a good convection microwave oven. that’s why peoples often tend to buy a tabletop microwave oven instead of a built-in microwave oven. In terms of capacity as per Flipkart, 15-20 liters microwave oven is best for 2-3 members family, 25-30 liters microwave oven is best for 3-5 members family and more than 30+ liters microwave ovens are suitable for more than 5 members family. So choose size and capacity according to your space and need.

Pre Programmed Settings – Most of the lower end microwave oven you will not get any pre-programmed options. Having pre-program option is always helpful to cook any dish without spending time on the internet to learn what are the temperature and How much time I should set. Most of the higher end convection microwave oven comes with several pre-programmed settings.

Built Quality – Build quality is another important aspect is any microwave. If you want to last your microwave oven for longer years then invest some money a go for a stainless steel build microwave instead of cheap plastic build microwave oven.

Child lock – This feature mostly found in a higher-end microwave oven. It’s like a password, that you have to enter to open the front panel.

Panel Types – Microwave ovens come with 3 different types of panel type i.e, Mechanical, Tac dial and feather touch. Where mechanical and tac dial is found in the lower-end microwave. Feather-touch is like a touchscreen display that works on a touch sensor.

Accesories – Most of the microwave oven are comes with different types of accessories. It doesn’t mean you will get all the accessories in each and every microwave oven. It depends on brands. If you want to do regular cooking in your microwave then buy some microwave-safe bowl from Flipkart and amazon.

Price – I already discuss the price range in types of the microwave oven. So buy a microwave oven according to your need.
