Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is a steam function?
AThis is a way of cooking foods using bursts of hot steam rather than direct heat or microwaves. It's a more delicate form of cooking, best suited to vegetables, dumplings and even pasta.
QWhat is combination cooking on a microwave?
AThis involves using both the microwave and oven or grill functions of the appliance simultaneously - frequently the microwaves are used to cook the food quickly, while the grill crisps and browns the top.
QWhat is a rotisserie?
AA rotisserie spit is a special rotating skewer available as an add-on for some premium microwaves. It allows you to spit-roast chicken and meat in the microwave - meaning the appliance can be used to cook many more dishes.

Microwave Buying Guide

A microwave is a necessity of any modern kitchen. It is a versatile tool that can be used for far more than just reheating leftovers - it can be used for all manner of cooking, from poaching salmon to baking potatoes.

loading image

Capacity

Microwaves come in all different shores and sizes, and are primarily differentiated by their capacity, measured in litres (L). The bigger the capacity of your microwave, the larger the food you can cook in it. Some microwaves just fit single plates or bowls, while other models are large enough to fit an entire chicken or soup pot in.

Oven & Grill Functions

Some microwaves have the ability to function as ovens and grills in addition to standard microwave cooking. Microwaves that have an added grill function combine the normal microwave cooking with a heated element either on the top or the sides of the machine - this allows it to function similar to a standard grill. Microwave ovens, on the other hand, can cook and roast food exactly like a convection oven. Whichever model you pick, these types of microwaves greatly increase the types of food you can cook, and turn your microwave into the central cooking tool in your kitchen - you can roast fish and beef, roast vegetables and grill cheese toasties!

More advanced models of microwave may also have a steamer function. As the name suggests, a steamer addition to the microwave uses boiling water to generate bursts of hot steam inside the microwave. This is a great method of delicately cooking vegetables so they retain the maximum amount of nutrients, and can also be used for cooking fish, dumplings, or Chinese-style pancakes for roast duck. While normally only found in the most high-level and expensive microwaves, it allows the appliance to become even more versatile as a cooking tool, and therefore may well be worth the extra expense.

Power Levels/Cooking Programs

Microwaves are all given a power level, rated in Watts. The higher the power level, the faster your food will be cooked. Most modern microwaves come with a range of power levels, allowing you great flexibility when preparing your food. They also come with specific setting for warming, reheating or defrosting food - extremely useful in speeding up cooking times, or reheating food previously cooked. Defrosting is an especially useful setting, meaning that joints of meat and frozen food can be brought up to room temperature in a matter of minutes.

Many microwaves now have a selection of automatic cooking functions as well. These allow you to input a type of food to cook (potatoes, chicken, soups, etc) and a weight, and the microwave will automatically calculate the power level and time needed to cook it perfectly. Conveniences like this can make preparing dinner hassle-free, and remove the guesswork and constant checking to see if your food is ready.

loading image

This automatic cooking function can also extend to defrosting and reheating leftovers, making the microwave an invaluable tool for easy food heating and prep. Some advanced models of microwave also offer a 'power defrost' setting, which can defrost frozen meat far quickly than usual defrost programs. However because this defrost cycle is far more powerful, care has to be given to make sure that you don't accidentally part cook the food while it's being defrosted.

Extra Features

Finally, some microwaves comes with a collection of extra features, to make cooking easier or more convenient. These can include recipe books detailing how to cook different types of food, baking trays designed to fit comfortably into the machine, or racks to allow multiple dishes to be cooked at once. Some microwave ovens even include a rotisserie spit, allowing you to cook spit-roasted chicken or pork.

The top rated microwave brand is Panasonic with an average rating of 90%. The second best brand is Samsung with 87% and the third best brand is Hotpoint with 87%.

Biggest Microwave Retailers

We found 600 current offers for microwaves from eBay making it the biggest microwave retailer. That is more than twice as big as the second biggest retailer, AO for whom we found 250 current offers for microwaves. The third biggest retailer is Appliances Direct with 204 current microwave offers.

When Are Most New Microwaves Released?

Over the last 3 years we couldn't see any clear pattern in the release month for new microwaves. Last year most new microwaves were released in January, with nine new microwaves released that month. In May 2018, 40 new microwaves were released making it the biggest month that year for new microwave releases. 68 new microwaves were released in April 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new microwave releases.

How Fast Do Microwave Prices Drop After Release?

On average, in the first 6 months after release, microwaves drop in price by 2%.

If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of £5 on a typical £246 new microwave by waiting 6 months before buying.

Case Designs

The case design of the microwave shows whether it is meant to be free standing, or designed to be built into fixtures unobtrusively.

The most common case design amongst new microwaves is freestanding. We found 718 microwaves that are freestanding microwaves. Integrated is the second most frequently found case design amongst new microwaves. We found 76 microwaves that are integrated microwaves.

Microwave Powers

'Microwave Power' denotes how strong the cooking power of the microwave is, measured in watts (W).

Comparing all microwaves, the microwave powers range from 220W to 3,300W. The microwave powers of the majority of microwaves range from 900W to 1,000W. The Hotpoint MP676IXH, which is available at £318.97, has the biggest microwave power and is a 2,800W microwave. The Panasonic NNCD87KSBPQ, which currently retails for £308.98, has the smallest microwave power and is a 220W microwave.

A higher power level that food cooked in the microwave will cook quicker and more efficiently.

Interior Capacities

'Interior Capacity' is how much the microwave can hold, measured in litres (L).

Comparing all microwaves, the interior capacities range from 1.5L to 62L. The interior capacities of most microwaves range from 22L to 26L. The Panasonic NNSN936B, which currently retails for £114.34, has the biggest interior capacity and is a 62L capacity microwave. The microwave with the smallest interior capacity is the Hotpoint MWH1331B, which is a 13L capacity microwave and can be purchased for £99.99.

A bigger capacity means that the microwave is capable of holding - and therefore cooking - more food at once.

Available Colours

We found 456 microwaves that are microwaves that have a black coloured, which makes this the most frequently found colour amongst new microwaves. Stainless steel is the second most common colour amongst new microwaves. We found 451 microwaves that are microwaves that have a stainless steel coloured.
