Why are microwaves so important?
Along with shoulder pads and mullet haircuts, microwave ovens suffered a fall from grace since their 1980s heyday. But its 2020 and now microwaves are a firm favourite in families kitchens up and down the country, this time for all the right reasons.
Crisp on the outside, moist on the inside and cooked in a flash – microwave food is a far cry from the dry, burnt mishaps that used to emerge. Now you can expect golden roast chicken, fluffy rice, moist cakes, smoothly melted chocolate and perfectly refreshed leftovers – no wonder, then, that almost three out of four us say that we couldn’t live without our microwave.
What microwave should I buy?
Freestanding models are the most popular as you can just plug and play, but take up worktop space, so if that’s at a premium, consider a built-in model. It will need to be professionally installed but often has more features. Whatever configuration you go for, however, it will be a big step up from the models of old.
You can also get combo microwaves, for example, ones that come with convection ovens. So if you feel like you rely on your microwave most days for meals, a combination microwave may be worth looking into.
Are microwaves expensive?
It really depends on what you’re in the market for. If you’re looking for a non-essential, quick and easy cooker to heat up your soup every day, then you could get away with buying a cheaper model, which you can shop around and get for as low as £30.
But if you need a quality, long-lasting microwave that comes with a host of helpful features, sleek and modern design features and helpful extras like warranty and free delivery, then consider flashing the cash.
