Today, Microwaves have become every household’s need. For reheating and doing a little cooking, you need a Convection Microwave. But due to the enormous models available in the market, it becomes tough to choose the right microwave as per your needs. But don’t worry. This article will help you choose the best Convection Microwave oven. Watch this video by clicking on the Youtube icon.
Some Important Points to consider before buying a Convection Microwave
- A 1000-watt microwave will cook quickly and efficiently, so that’s a great baseline. Microwaves with 700 watts or less, which might even be available at a cheaper price, are slower and may not cook evenly. In general, the higher the wattage, the faster the cooking time.
- The main part of the Microwave is Magnetron which is responsible for Heating. Check the warranty of the Magnetron before buying a Microwave. And in most cases, you don’t need an Extended Warranty.
- If you are buying a Convection Microwave primarily for Reheating, or maybe if you want to Roast or Grill once in six months, I recommend you not to waste your money on a Convection Microwave. A Solo Microwave will suffice for the same.
- Most Brands make Fancy Looking Microwaves with one or two additional features and cost 5-7K more. Those features are in most cases useless. Buy those Fancy Looking Microwaves if you have extra Cash to Spend. Otherwise, the Microwaves on this list work as well as the Fancy ones.
- Many Models available online and offline were released even before 2009. There Spare Parts are not easily available. Avoid those Models because once it is out of warranty, it won’t be possible to repair it, if needed.
