Difference between a microwave & an OTG – oven vs microwave

Microwaves use electromagnetic waves whereas OTG uses electric coils for heating. Heating is more even in Microwaves than OTG. Microwaves use more electricity than OTG. Temperature can be controlled in OTG but not in the microwave. Microwave is good for baking & defrosting whereas an OTG can be used for baking, grilling, toasting, and rotisserie. Grilling, Toasting, and rotisserie can be done in microwaves too but it is the best in OTG.

A microwave uses convection & an exhaust fan for cooking whereas OTG uses a heating element for cooking. Only glass & ceramic can be used in microwave whereas in OTG- glass, aluminium, steel & heavy ceramics can be used.

1. Capacity-
For 2 or 3 members, a 20L oven/OTG is good. But we suggest you don’t buy it at it is very small. 25-30L OTG is sufficient for 4 to 5 members. But for people who love to cook, bake, or grill, a 40L OTG is the best. Food lovers must go for it.

2. Power-
Less power (1000-1200W) of OTGs is a problem as the food cooks slowly and sometimes it leads to uneven cooking of food that needs high temp. Thus a good OTG with the right Wattage and correct power delivery is a must.

3. Pre-Heating-
Pre-heating an OTG is essential before cooking or baking. Skipping the pre-heating will wear off the crispiness? Pre-heating is essential for crispy pizzas & cookies.

4. Utensils-
Bakeable glass, aluminium, steel, and OTG safe ceramic can be used in OTG. Greasing is essential before cooking. Avoid plastic in OTGs.

5. During the Use-
The outer body of OTG gets heated and processes a’ tick’ sound which is completely ok. This is a normal function.

6. Customer Service-
Do check the customer service of brands as a technician near your home can’t help you. We called the customer care services of all our recommended OTGs. We told them the same 3 problems from different locations. We will rate their services on this experience.

Pros and cons –

the 40L size is amazing. Food lovers must go for bigger-sized OTGs. It has all the good features but it lacks 2 things which were disturbing.

1. The short power cord of 1m (it should’ve been 1.2 or 2m) and

2. It has only a 1-year comprehensive warranty.

5. Philips 36L OTG – best otg in India

The best OTGs in India 2022 is Philips 36L OTG with 2000W power. It has a cold-rolled steel body. The steel was not heated and this makes it sturdy. It has 7 level browning or heating modes. It has convection tech with an adjustable temp control knob (there in all OTGs). It comes with a motorized rotisserie and a one-touch pre-set menu with a digital display. It has a timer function.

We called this customer care number and our review is ‘average’ as Philips said it will provide services only till halfway of your location is far away. For 100km, they will only come 50km. Rest 50Km must be travelled by you. That is why we rated it average. It has 2 years warranty and costs ₹9,300. The price is high but considering the brand and features, it is fine.

Pros and cons –

it has all the good features including convection mode & rotisserie. The best thing is the digital display which is not there in other OTGs. However, the lit buttons of OTG are not of that good quality. This is a good OTG. The service is good for metro and tier 1 cities. We recommend this 36L OTG. This is the best OTG.

One thought on “Best OTG in India 2022 | Oven vs Microwave

  • January 25, 2022 at 2:01 am

    Your genuine evaluation is applaudable . Just a little feedback to you based upon my research last year . My personal preference on common points is – Two heating elements , convection , 6 +1 modes of heat settings , lower element on , upper element on , both on , with and without convection fan on , + keep warm in one switch ,; rositerre , light , min 38L , min 1800 W ( preferably 42L or even 48 L , with 2000 W) . Some additional important factors of consideration that are left out are are 1) Temperature setting range -some start with 90 and some with 100 C , the highest varying from 180 to 250 C . In exceptional cases it is starting from 50 C or so with an extremely useful function of fermentation . Fermentation requires a setting of lower starting temperature ranging from 35 to 50 C . I could find this feature only in Panasonic OTG ( or in LG/Samsung convection /charcoal microwave Cum oven ) and not in any other OTG . Hearing above 55 -60 C kills fermenting bacteria . Fermentation is useful and convenient when we want to bake bread , particularly millet or whole wheat bread at home as genuine whole wheat/millet /Sridhanya millet bread is not available in market . It saves manual work of fermenting otherwise . We can also make curd quickly with this function .Panasonic is expensive and service quality in NCR for this is doubtful as customers are only a few . Do you know if any other brand with this feature is available ? I already have LG charcoal microwave which is very expensive and common use by my servants or such OTG functions damages it frequently . I want to keep a separate OTG . 2) Sathe new models now have double glass door , which is new standard . 3) Some brands overstate their capacity in Litres . Actual inside dimensions for same Ltres of different brands are different . I have serious doubts on Agaro too overstating it . That is why I am thinking of 42L and 2000 W .

    Any alternative suggestions from you considering above factored too .
