Microwave Ovens are kitchen appliances which are used to heat, re-heat, defrost, grill and bake food.  They are available in three main categories, which we have outlined below:

Solo Microwaves

A solo microwave oven includes the basic microwave function, but no grill or convection oven.  These are the cheapest type of microwave, and are used mainly for heating and cooking food.

Grill Microwaves

A grill microwave includes the same facilities as a solo microwave, but also includes a grill function, which will enable you to crisp and brown food.

Combination Microwaves

A Combination Microwave (or combi microwave) is the most versatile of the three, as it also includes a convection oven, so you can bake and roast food.  They also usually include a grill as well as the basic microwave functions of the solo microwave.  Typically these are the most expensive of the three types of microwave.

Microwave Ovens are available in a variety of colours, so you should be able to find the perfect microwave oven to match your kettle and toaster.  Our microwave reviews will help you to locate the ideal microwave for your home.  Popular manufacturers include Whirlpool, Daewoo, Panasonic and Russell Hobbs.
