Best Microwave Oven in India 2022-Under 10000

Did this ever happen that you wanted a Samsung microwave but somehow ended up buying an LG microwave? Don’t worry! This is not your fault. This happens as shopkeepers influence you into buying something they are eager to sell. They can sell you an IFB microwave even if you want a Samsung microwave. They do so in order to make maximum profit.

Shopkeepers are not considerate regarding your requirements and needs. However, in this article, we have catered the list of Best Microwave Oven in India 2022 under all categories. Browse through the list to find the most suitable one for you.

Microwave Oven Buying Guide –

1. Types of Microwaves-
There are primarily two types of microwaves and they work absolutely differently-
1.1 Solo microwaves that produce heat by vibrating water molecules and
1.2 Convection microwaves produce heat with the heating elements.

Their purposes are also different. For reheating, go for a solo microwave and save money. But for grilling, baking, etc, go for a convection microwave oven.

2. Convection Microwaves-
A convection microwave is a blend of a Solo microwave and an OTG with many modes. These are the commonly used modes. Their power consumption is between 700W to 3000W. They can be used in a varied manner.

3. Size-
For 2-3 members, we recommend the 28L model as it has more space and much better power options. The price difference is mere Rs 2,000-3,000. Invest your money wisely.

4. Popular marketing gimmicks-
2017-built microwaves are as good as microwaves built in 2022. You can buy a 2017 microwave as well because microwave technology has not evolved in the past 10 years. 2017 model is as good as recent models.

Don’t fall for the ‘latest model’ marketing gimmick. The only evolvement is a charcoal element in LG microwave ovens. LG claims that their patented ‘charcoal element technology’ improves the taste of food. However, this is still a topic for discussion.

The next gimmick is the ‘Auto Cook Menu’. Brands claim 100-250 auto-cook menus. But how many options have you used till now? Spending money on this feature is a waste. It is a big marketing gimmick. Do not fall for it.

5. Cavity-
Cavity, which is the inner part of a microwave, is an important part of a microwave. It is of two types-

Stainless steel cavity which difficult to clean and doesn’t get cleaned properly.
Ceramic cavity offered by Samsung and other brands. It is usually easier to clean.

6. Magnetron-
Magnetron; the heart of the microwave; is responsible for heating. Without it, the microwave is nothing. Do check its warranty before buying a microwave.

7. Extended Warranty-
An extended warranty plan is a must and we highly recommend Go Warranty. Buy it from anywhere but protect your appliance from day one.

SOLO MICROWAVE

1. Samsung 23L Solo Microwave – Best Microwave Oven in India 2022

 If you only want to buy a microwave to reheat food, then buy solo microwaves. The only model that we recommend is Samsung 23L solo microwave with 800W power. It comes with a ceramic cavity and auto-cook menu (good for cooking a variety of rice). They are not meant for grilling or toasting. Heating can be regulated as per your need with a power level regulator. It comes with an auto-defrost option and a deodorizer.

Deodorizer will eliminate the aroma of the previously cooked or kept food. The newly cooked food will have its own aroma and it is good. In eco mode, microwaves will use less electricity. The tact and dial control of this best Microwave Oven in India 2022 is actually a jog dial. It has a child lock too.  

*It has 1 year comprehensive and 10 years warranty on the ceramic cavity and costs Rs 6000 only. This is an amazing price for a 23L microwave. However, prices are subject to change.

4. Whirlpool 30L Microwave- Best Microwave Oven in India 2022

The fourth on the list of the best microwave oven in India in 2022 is the Whirlpool 30L microwave with 900W-2000W power. It comes with stainless steel cavity along with 7 cooking modes with a 300 auto-cook menu. Brands have a habit of playing with your psychology by providing these huge numbers but nobody uses them.

According to Whirlpool, its turntable diameter is 315mm. The turntable of this best Microwave Oven in India 2022 is the circular plate inside the microwave.

5. LG 28L Convection Microwave- Best Microwave Oven in India 2022

Number fifth in our list of the best microwave oven in India 2022 is the LG 28L microwave. It has 900W-1950W power. It comes with stainless steel cavity and a 251 auto-cook menu. A large number of auto-cook menus is not an advantage. The intellowave technology will evenly distribute the hot air for even cooking which however is the basic work of any microwave. It is not a good feature, rather it is a good marketing gimmick.

The fermentation function is good as it allows you to ferment curd. LG has also overhyped the 12 min ghee feature. LG 28L microwave has Quick Defrost is a feature provided by almost all brands that are good. Frozen food can be easily defrosted before frying which is good for health. ‘Keep warm for 90 minutes is a good feature. The food can be kept warm at the same temperature for 90 minutes.

The grab handle is convenient for opening and closing the microwave door. Keypad buttons on the front give quick responses.

*It has a 1-year comprehensive warranty and costs Rs 12,200.

  3. The third option has 4 years warranty on magnetron.

Pros & Cons –

PROS

  • It is amazing with almost all its features.

CONS

  • The only issue is the lack of a warranty on magnetron. Its magnetron gets damaged after 1-2 years and its replacement costs Rs 2000-3000. That is why we don’t recommend it. If you are a fan of LG, then you can buy its third model. This Rs 15000 model has a total 5 years warranty on magnetron. This will secure your microwave.
