What does the microwave button mean?

A microwave oven is an electric or gas oven that has microwave functionality added to it Using the microwave function in conjunction with other modes of the oven significantly speeds up the cooking process.

  • Place on a table, shelf or other flat place.
  • Switch the appliance on by inserting the plug into the power socket.
  • Now start the appliance. Different models can be turned on in different ways:. button “Start” or “Cook”;

Defrosting and standing time for various types of meat

The time for defrosting meat in the microwave and leaving it to stand depends on the type of product and its weight.


So, a half kilogram of beef cut into pieces defrosts for 4 to 9 minutes. After this, the meat will need to stand for half an hour. Beef cubes with the total weight of half a kilogram are defrosted for 5-10 minutes and left to stand for about 8-10 minutes. Ground beef is completely defrosted in 5 to 9 minutes (no time to rest). Veal will take 4-10 minutes to defrost, 15-20 minutes to defrost.


Pork defrosts according to different rules than beef. We’re talking, again, about half a kilogram of product. For example, pieces of pork are defrosted for 5-10 minutes and left to stand for half an hour. Frozen chops will be ready to roast after 3-7 minutes in the microwave. Bacon pieces should be kept in the oven for 6-10 minutes and then allowed to stand for another 30-40 minutes.


Half a kilogram of lamb meat is defrosted in 7-11 minutes and left to stand for about half an hour. Lamb chops stand in the microwave for 4 to 10 minutes, defrosting only 5.


If you have frozen sausage products (any kind of sausage themselves, wieners or frankfurters), it will take 2 to 6 minutes to defrost 0.5 kg of product. Standing time. 2 minutes.


It is worth noting that not all meat products require mandatory defrosting. For example, from the frozen chicken pieces you can start cooking broth immediately. this is more correct from the point of view of experienced cooks. Chicken thighs in general is recommended to fry just frozen. so the finished dish will be much juicier.

“Do Not Use Popcorn Button“. Breaking All the Rules of Microwave Popcorn

Virtually instant defrosting of precooked meats is not a myth but a reality. If you follow the basic rules for defrosting meat in the microwave, you’ll have a juicy piece of pork or beef ready to roast or bake in just a few minutes.

How to choose a microwave oven: helping you decide on the criteria

The microwave oven has long moved from being an unusual appliance to a standard or even downright boring appliance. In fact: everyone who wanted to get a microwave oven, most likely, already did it long ago.

And you don’t see many ads for new microwave ovens. The reasons are the same: almost everyone who needs a microwave oven already has one, and the failure of these appliances is so rare that there is no need to regularly renew the microwave oven.

As a consequence, a new microwave oven is bought either at the end of the repair in the apartment (or kitchen renovation), or when the previous model is finally and irrevocably obsolete. That is, not too often.

Let’s take a look at modern microwave ovens and see what they have overtaken their ancestors, and what has remained the same. And at the same time let’s determine how to choose a microwave oven best suited for your needs.

Microwave oven design

The heart of a microwave oven is a magnetron: an electronic device that generates microwaves by interacting a flow of electrons with the electric component of an ultra-high frequency field in space, where the constant magnetic field is perpendicular to the constant electric field, as Wikipedia tells us.

What it means in practice? Microwaves are electromagnetic radiation of ultrahigh frequency, which transfers its energy to molecules, thus making them move faster (i.e., increasing the temperature). The electrical component of electromagnetic waves accelerates the motion of molecules with a dipole moment, and since the most common dipole molecules in the food are water molecules, the microwave radiation mainly heats any product is located in the water, and from the water heats everything else.

Once you understand the principles of microwave, it is easy to understand that no additional damage to health, which can cause the food, heated or cooked in a microwave, of course, is out of the question. The only effect that microwaves have on food is normal heating.

I must say that when we started preparing this material, we were unpleasantly surprised to find that the arguments about the harm of microwaves, apparently, belong to the category of very tenacious grandmother’s tales, and they can still be found on numerous (usually local) forums and in discussions of the principles of healthy eating.

Freestanding and built-in microwave ovens

When choosing a microwave oven, the first thing to decide is whether your microwave will be built-in or freestanding. Built-in microwave implies the need to calculate the kitchen furniture according to the dimensions of the device (including, perhaps, ordering cabinets of the right size). These microwave ovens are usually purchased at the stage of kitchen design, because later attempting to build an appliance in the wrong place can turn out to be quite significant cost and time.

Freestanding appliances are simply placed on the table or in the niche provided for them. They can be easily moved or stored away for long periods of time (e.g., if you rarely use the microwave and need the free space to accommodate other kitchen appliances).

Let’s also mention that at the stage of selecting a microwave, it is necessary to understand whether it will be convenient to use, namely to decide on the design of the door. The hinges of the microwave door can be on the side or at the bottom. The door, therefore, can be opened sideways or hinged on itself (as in a classic oven). The choice is determined by personal preferences or peculiarities of the design of the kitchen set.

Dimensions and size of the oven cavity

The next obvious parameter, which is quite easy to decide is the size of the working chamber of the microwave oven and directly related to the size of the device itself.

The size of the microwave depends on how many servings of food it can heat (or cook) at one time. It is believed that for a small family is enough capacity to 20-23 liters, for three or four people 25-28 liters.

Larger microwaves are only worth considering if you have a good understanding of why you need them. For example, if you know exactly what you will cook in the microwave or regularly reheat large portions at a time.


The more microwave power the better. Sounds good? The truth is that microwave power is quite important, but by no means the most important parameter. Although you can find microwave ovens on the market with microwave power of only 500 watts, and powerful built-in appliances that consume 1500 watts, in most cases the power of the appliance is chosen according to its size. That is, it will almost always be sufficient for the task at hand.

If you still decided to ask about this parameter, then do not forget that often indicated on the box power is the total power of microwaves, grill and convection. These are the values to be guided by if you choose a microwave oven based on the load that your power grid allows.

If you are interested in the microwave power, you may need to refer to the instructions that come with the appliance to find this information.

In medium-sized microwaves, the microwave power is usually around 1000 watts and this is perfectly adequate for all tasks.

The interior of the chamber

The inner walls of the microwave oven may be covered with enamel, ceramic, bioceramic enamel or stainless steel.

The most common today are enamel coatings, which are relatively inexpensive and easy to clean. They are quite difficult to damage, but relatively easy to keep clean. True, enamel coatings do not like prolonged exposure to high temperatures, so in more powerful and expensive models you can often find coatings made of ceramic and bioceramic. These coatings are difficult to scratch, almost no fouling is left on them.

The most durable, but also the most difficult to care for is the steel coating. They can withstand all temperatures with ease, but are just as easy to pick up grease stains. Grease stains cannot be removed with an abrasive sponge. there are very visible scratches on the steel wall.

Grill, rotisserie and convection

The simplest microwave ovens can perform only one task. to heat food at a set power. modern models are able to partially replace the oven, taking over some of its functions. Thanks to this microwave oven becomes possible to fully cook a variety of dishes. This solution seems to us quite adequate in several cases:

  • When it comes to small apartments, where there is no space for a full-size oven, or if the microwave is the only available kitchen appliance, for example, it is installed in the construction shed or in the country house;
  • If you often want to cook a portion of dishes that require cooking in the oven, but it does not seem reasonable to heat up the whole oven for it (for example, hot sandwiches for breakfast) in this case the microwave with convection oven will perform the role of a small oven.

In modern microwave ovens, in addition to microwaves, several solutions are used, and often they can be used simultaneously with each other.


Many microwave ovens are equipped with a grill (usually upper, although sometimes there are models with upper and lower grill). Basically, the grill is an additional heating element that allows you to cook, for example, a hot sandwich or grilled chicken with a nice crispy crust. Two types of grills are used in modern microwave ovens: quartz grills and fan grills.

The familiar fan coil is exactly the same as that found in a full-size or compact oven. But the quartz grill, which is, in fact, a powerful infrared lamp, you can meet less often. It will cost a little more expensive, but beneficially differs in that it does not take up space in the working chamber, heats up faster, and works faster than its more simple counterpart.

Lower grill is relatively rare. Its task is to ensure that the dish heats more evenly. It is usually infrared and is built into the bottom of the microwave oven.

The rotisserie

Together with the grill, a rotisserie is sometimes used. It is traditionally used to cook pieces of meat, fish, and roast poultry whole. The rotisserie is commonly used with the grill and the convection mode: the fan blows hot air and the food is evenly browned under the heat from all sides.

In modern microwave ovens, the rotisserie is not very common, as a rule, it is abandoned in favor of the usual metal grate: convection mode, which drives hot air evenly throughout the chamber, in most cases allows you to do without rotating the product itself.


Convection mode in the microwave is completely similar to convection in the oven: thanks to a special fan, the food is cooked in streams of hot air circulating around the dish. This mode allows the food to bake most evenly. The convection mode is often used in combination with the grill for best results (e.g. for the same chicken). At the same time, a microwave with convection will be predictably more expensive, as well as consume more electricity.

Conventional and inverter microwave ovens

In traditional microwave ovens the magnetron can be in two states. on or off. Accordingly, different heating power modes are implemented by periodically turning the magnetron on and off. The longer it is on the more the food is heated. The greater the number of pauses, the more time the food to be heated has to distribute the heat evenly within itself. It is clear that a mistake with the choice of mode can cause some parts of the food to be heated too hot and others, on the contrary, to remain cold. It is also not uncommon to find that the food is too dry.

These are some of the problems that the inverter oven is designed to solve. Its main difference from the traditional microwave oven is the presence of a special electronic control unit of the magnetron power (inverter). Thanks to such a device, the microwave gets the ability to work not only discretely (on./off.), but also on an arbitrary power setting and heating of the food evenly.

As a bonus, the inverter microwave has no transformer, which takes up a lot of space in the body of the device, as well as some energy savings, which may be more (or less) relevant depending on the electricity tariff.

As a minus, the price is expected: the cheapest inverter microwave will cost you about 2 times more than a traditional entry-level microwave.

Controls and built-in programs

Microwave ovens today can be controlled mechanically (made in the form of rotating round knobs and buttons), electronically (usually looks like a few buttons with a digital screen), or touch sensitive (based, as you can easily guess, on touch, not mechanical, buttons).

The mechanical control is simple and inexpensive, but somewhat restricts the user in the choice of appropriate modes. Microwave ovens with electronic button control, as a rule, have built-in programs for heating or cooking different dishes.

Microwaves with touch controls provide access to the maximum range of useful features, allowing maximum flexibility in setting the speed and heating time, or the cooking mode for a particular dish. And the touch panel will be easier to care for (dirt will not get into the gap between the buttons and the body of the device).

Virtually all models have audible alarms (and a built-in oven backlight). And only the most advanced models (or those that want to look like such) have smartphone control or a companion app with recipes and other useful information.

Finally, let’s talk about the presence of built-in programs. It’s not a secret that the most commonly used function in a microwave oven is a button such as add 30 seconds to the current mode. However, even apart from that, modern microwave ovens have many useful automatic or semi-automatic modes that allow you to perform a particular operation easily.

  • The automatic defrost will calculate the most appropriate mode for defrosting the selected product. All you need to do is to select the freezing weight and the type of food (meat, fish, vegetables, etc.). д.);
  • Automatic reheating performs the same calculations, but not for defrosting, but for reheating ready meals;
  • Automatic temperature maintenance this function can be useful if you need to keep a dish warm for a while;
  • Recipes for cooking many models allow you to cook the most popular dishes (soup, sandwiches, chicken, etc.). п.) literally at the touch of a button;
  • Programming the cooking process and recording recipes into the memory for those for whom the built-in recipes were not enough, the developers have added the ability to create your own program (a sequence of different modes), which allows you to apply the recipe function to your favorite dishes that are not included in the list of standard;
  • Child lock Although any microwave will automatically shut off when the door is open, many models allow you to completely lock the control panel, which will prevent a child from cooking something inappropriate in the microwave (for example, an egg);
  • Delayed start with this function you can program the microwave to reheat the dish at a certain time. For example, you can take the dog for a walk in the morning and have a heated breakfast when you get home.

Choosing a microwave oven, the user will have to answer a number of fairly simple questions, after which the whole intimidating range of models will shrink tenfold (and at best to 3-5 models).

First, you need to decide what type of microwave you want and whether it will be a built-in or freestanding. The second question dimensions (which directly depend on how many people we will cook/heat food for).

Then decide if you need a rotisserie, and grill and convection functions (that is, decide whether you will cook simple meals in the microwave, or are going to use it only for warming up).

At this stage it’s time to decide on the price category. Or to decide if you’re willing to pay more for a more expensive oven, for touch controls, or for a greater choice of built-in automatic programs. And do you want an inverter microwave or a conventional one?

And finally, the best part is choosing a suitable design (body color) and brand, which you trust more.

As we can see, choosing a modern microwave oven can be a very simple task, if you approach it systematically.

  • Place on a table, shelf or other flat place.
  • Turn the appliance on by inserting the plug into the power socket.
  • Now start the appliance. Different models can be turned on differently:. with the “Start” or “Cook” button;. by turning the timer. after setting the time, the oven turns on.
  • Take the rack from the oven (if present), put a piece of meat on it, and place a deeper dish underneath. During defrosting, the water will drain into the dish and not into the oven cavity
  • Set the oven knob to “defrost”
  • Switch the oven on.

Review of LG MW25R35GISH inverter microwave oven with universal programs

Microwave oven LG MW25R35GISH from series Neo chef is not equipped with popular functions now Grill and Convection, but promises faster and more even heating of food thanks to the clever inverter. The number of automatic modes is also appealing 25.


Contrary to popular misconception, this is not the period in which the device will necessarily break. After this period, however, the manufacturer ceases to have any responsibility for its performance and has the right to refuse to repair it, even for a fee.

The package

The box where LG MW25R35GISH arrived to us can not be called super-informative: there is no picture of the device as well as conspicuous model name, the advantages of the furnace are listed in English: smart inverter, whatever it means, LED-lighting, touch control, stable rotary table, anti-bacterial coating of Easy Clean cooking cabinet.

After turning the box we finally found a sticker with the model name, power and contacts of importer and manufacturer.

Taking the microwave out of the box, we found in it:

At a glance

Image of LG MW25R35GISH is elegantly reserved. The case of wet asphalt color is not overloaded with decoration, moreover it has no handle. LG designers freed up the catching area by placing the control panel at a slight angle to the plane of the door. When the oven is in standby mode, the door appears completely black and mirrored, but when you turn the unit on, it reveals a darkened viewing window. Glossy door looks stylish, but needs constant care or it will quickly become covered in fingerprints.

On the ledge on the top surface of the microwave oven is a hot surface sign.

The walls of the oven are embossed and have two semicircular protrusions on them, so that the unit cannot be pushed up against the wall.

Multiple ventilation holes in the bottom. Stands on three rubber feet.

On the back, there are additional ventilation holes and a sticker with information about the appliance. Electrical cord extends from top left corner of back panel, protected against kinking by cord stop. On the right side is a safety stop to prevent the device from moving too close to the wall and damaging it or the surface.

Capacious chamber is treated with Easy Clean coating. According to the manufacturer, it prevents the spreading of bacteria and the absorption of grease, which means that it is easy to clean. In addition, it is supposedly resistant to mechanical damage. Glass turntable stands on an unusual hexagonal support, so it can bear up to 2 kg of weight, and placed on the edge of the dish will not topple.


The manual is written for many models at once, but they differ, apparently, only in the control panel, so you don’t have to look for your manual is universal.

First comes the section Safety Instructions, and it is dumbfounding with its insane layout. This is probably a trick to attract attention, because the rest of the text looks completely sane.

The manual is written and presented very intelligently: where necessary, there are illustrations, important points are highlighted graphically, each mode is dedicated to a large section, which certainly has an example, after reading it you have no problem with any analogy to heat or cook any dish.

Every aspect of oven operation is mentioned in the manual. The mechanics of heating, the permitted utensils, the influence of food characteristics on the cooking process, even the answer to the question of why eggs burst in the microwave, everything is here.


Eight touch-sensitive buttons below the display are responsible for the control (it shows the selected power and, during cooking, the remaining operating time and the current mode).

  • Choice of power (1000, 800, 600, 400, 200 W).
  • Inverter defrosting (categories: dEF1-meat, dEF2-poultry, dEF3-fish, dEF4-bread). The category is selected by successive button presses, confirmed with the Start button, the weight is selected with the and buttons −.
  • Keeping temperature/yogurt cooking (categories: 1 cooking yogurt, 2 keeping temperature to keep food warm). Category selectable by successive pressing of the button.
  • Inverter cooking (categories: 1 warming (subcategories: drinks, casserole, dinner plate, muffin, pie, pizza, rice, soup), 2 Popular menu (subcategories: 1 borscht, 2 buckwheat porridge, 3 broth, 4 jacket potatoes, 5 potted meat, 6 meat hodgepodge, 7 dumplings, 8 trout with vegetables), 3 softening (subcategories: 1 butter, 2 cream cheese, 3 ice cream), 4 thawing (subcategories: 1 butter, 2 cheese, 3 chocolate)). Category is selected by successive button presses, confirmed with the Start button, the sub-category is selected with the and buttons −, It also sets (if necessary) the weight of the food.
  • Increase/decrease parameter buttons. Increase/decrease the operating time after starting the program.
  • Stop/Reset
  • Start/Confirmation

Above the display is the blue Smart icon. A customer service operator can ask to turn the phone to him to run diagnostics during a call.

The start key can be used to start the oven quickly. When pressed in standby mode, it starts the heating process at maximum power. Each subsequent press extends the operating time by 30 seconds.

The oven emits a pleasant beeping sound when the button is pressed and operation is started. At the end of the work there will be a short melody instead of the usual beep.

Child lock will prevent unauthorized use of the oven. To lock, hold the stop/reset button for a few seconds. The panel will be locked when the long buzzer sounds and the display lights up Loc.


Before using the oven for the first time, wipe the body of the oven with a damp cloth. It is advisable to wash the glass pan and the roller ring in soapy water. The oven must be placed in a safe place: in the open, 20 cm from walls, shelves and other surfaces. Keep a distance of at least 30 cm from the top.

Safety measures when working with LG MW25R35GISH do not differ from those for any other microwave oven. The choice of dishes is also standard: plastic, paper, glass, ceramic.

When connecting the microwave to the network, you must set the clock, the time can be displayed in 12- and 24-hour format. In case of a power outage, these settings are reset.

It takes a little effort to open the door, but the oven does not move a single millimeter. The hexagonal support is very solid, even on the edge of the glass dish the glass will not tip over.

Operation is simple, but at the beginning it is scary with a lot of automatic programs. The detailed instructions and hints on the side help you to master them, and soon the most used combinations are registered in the memory. A set of presets is universal, it is easy to find the right one for any dish. The settings of these programs are quite adequate. Sometimes the soup felt a little overheated, but not critically: for example, a 250gr soup took 3 minutes and 10 seconds to heat up to 78° C C and the restaurant rule is to serve the first course at 6575 C. Unfortunately, the oven does not allow you to see the power at which it operates during an automatic program.

There are some nice pictures on the LG website that show a cup with evenly heated contents. In practice, we did not observe anything like that: the food, as usual, heated up more at the bottom.

Before cleaning, you should unplug the appliance and let it cool completely. The oven should be cleaned regularly and any crumbs or splashes of fat on the walls or base should be removed immediately after cooking. The oven cavity and seals should be cleaned with a damp cloth and non-abrasive detergents should be used. The housing should be wiped periodically with a damp and then with a dry cloth. Do not use rough wipes or sponges, abrasive pastes or aggressive chemicals for cleaning the microwave oven and its accessories.

Our measurement

We tested the speed of heating water in a standard half-liter jar at maximum microwave power. Initial water temperature in the jar is 20 C, heating time 5 minutes. The data is summarized in a table.

Time Temperature, C
30 seconds 29
1 minute 39
2 minutes 56
3 minutes 72
4 minutes 84
5 minutes 94

At idle, the oven consumes 1.3 W. The maximum power we recorded was 1558 W.

Defrosting the minced meat

This test for the microwave oven has long since caught on in our lab. We put 800 g of mixed minced meat into the microwave and started the Inverter defrost mode. The device decided that it would need 13 minutes and 24 seconds noticeably less than we are used to.

After five minutes the buzzer sounded, but the oven did not stop operating. On top the minced meat remained stony, although the frost had melted. But on the bottom we managed to scrape off a layer of thawed meat about a centimeter and a half thick. Turned the stuffing over and returned it to the chamber.

At the end of the program we waited for 5 minutes to stabilize the temperature inside the piece, and then we opened the device. Our meatball didn’t leak or lose its shape, we even thought the mincemeat hadn’t defrosted. But we were wrong: after removing the thawed parts in front of us there was a small hard piece of 100g. We sent it to defrost further, this time the device measured 1 minute and 48 seconds.

After about 50 seconds a buzzer warned us to turn the plate upside down. We removed the thawed stuffing and put the rest of the stuffing in the oven for the rest of the program. It defrosted perfectly, no sign of protein denaturation, although the edge was close: the stuffing was visibly hot.


We poured 600 ml of water over 300 g of washed cereals, added salt, covered the container and put it into the oven (automatic program 2-2). We were not prompted to set the weight, and the microwave measured itself for 20 minutes of operation and went off.

After 20 minutes in the oven we had what looked like ready mush waiting for us, with a few grits stuck on the lid. We let it stand for 15 minutes. There are smudges on the sides of the bowl: the water was evidently boiling heavily and spilling out of the bowl.

Buckwheat is fully cooked, it can be with a minimum of stretch to be called crumbly.

Get the kids away from the screens, we’re going to dabble with the food! (You wouldn’t call making borscht according to LG recipe any other way.) So, following the Popular menu in the instructions, we cut up 300g of meat, half a potato, half a beet, half a carrot, 100g of cabbage, one tomato. We added a tablespoon of tomato paste, a crushed clove of garlic, salt and pepper. But we still allowed some deviations: we put dried herbs instead of fresh herbs, and we didn’t add a spoonful of vinegar, for the acidity is better to correct in the end. And so it seems that something strange is waiting for us, we need more hard potatoes floating in it.

We poured water over it all: it was suggested to have two cups, but we poured two and a half. The 2-1 program requires 25 minutes of operation. Let’s go! The main thing is to remember to stir the bowl a few times, as the instructions say.

At the end of the program we checked what had turned out. The color of our brew was quite borscht-burgundy, the potatoes were boiled, but the cabbage was quite raw, and the beets also didn’t have enough time. We added another 10 minutes in the same mode.

Finally, we were satisfied with everything: the beets were ready, and the cabbage was slightly crispy and perfect. Well, of course, it was not restaurant and certainly not our house borsch, but from the table itself. Well, we put some aromatic dried herbs, because they made up for the lack of taste of root vegetables, which bypassed the stage of steaming in oil. And we should not spare the garlic, one clove seemed to us disastrously insufficient.

Naturally we would not serve this kind of soup to the householders or guests with pride, but when there is no hot plate and one wants hot soup, such a variant has the right to live on.


Couldn’t resist cooking yogurt, since it has a separate program. We took 0.5 liter of whole milk and 100g of plain Greek yogurt.

The instructions advise heating the milk at maximum power for 1.52.5 minutes to 40-50 C. That’s a bit much, so we heated it for less than a minute to 35 C. Then we mixed the milk and yogurt thoroughly, covered the container with the mixture with clingfilm and put it into the oven with the proper program.

The microwave functioned for 5 hours. Unfortunately the yogurt curdled and was floating in the whey in a layer, which suggests that the cooking temperature was too high.

We mixed the contents of the container and left it in the fridge overnight. In the morning we start to prepare breakfast. The yogurt was lumpy.

We ate the yogurt with muesli, honey and jam. With this masking it was indistinguishable from store-bought.

The LG MW25R35GISH inverter model is the perfect microwave for the modern user, spoiled by smart devices. It is no longer necessary to calculate the time and power ratio and constantly check whether the dish is cooked to perfection: the microwave will do everything for you, just select the desired mode and indicate the weight of the food to be heated. We’ve noticed slight overheating on a few occasions, including while cooking yogurt, but this can be accommodated by shortening the program time.

As for the appearance and the device LG MW25R35GISH we do not have the slightest complaint: elegant design of the oven will fit perfectly into any interior, and the inverter has provided a small weight and a roomy chamber of the device.

About the grill

Imported models can be marked with the word Gril. these are combination options. The heating element itself can be infrared (IR) or traditional. Cooking with the grill gives the dish a golden crust, for which many customers prefer microwave ovens to conventional electric or gas ovens. Particularly enthusiastic reviews online can be found for poultry, meat products, casseroles, cheese and vegetable dishes.

You can activate the grill at the end. just for the sake of crusting, and before that cook using the waves.

What is a solo in a microwave oven. What is a microwave oven solo. Solo microwave: what is it

Microwave oven helps when you need to cook or heat food as fast as possible. But at the same time, few people know that there are different types of them, such as a solo, and which one stands in their kitchen. In today’s market, you can find three main categories of appliances: conventional, with a grill, with a large set of functions.Regular solo microwave oven. Uses only microwave radiation and is best suited for heating food.

With a grill

Devices additionally equipped with grill function.

With other features

Ovens, implying the functions of frequency waves, grill, convection.

First kind. With basic configuration. Most often found in the kitchen. Can’t cook or bake anything elaborate in it, but it does the job of heating and defrosting just fine. That’s why it never loses its popularity.

Although small in capacity, this microwave is a good substitute for an oven.

What is an eco-mode in microwave ovens

Microwave ovens from well-known European and Asian manufacturers are not only distinguished by a great design or a wide range of programs. Many microwave ovens have a special eco mode that allows the appliances to use significantly less electricity. Reduction of energy consumption is not to the detriment of the speed or quality of cooking, because the option works only during standby time.
