Buying a microwave is essential for most people, those who are purchasing for the first time, an upgrade or simply replacing an old one. Shopping for a microwave is just as hard as shopping for an oven. That is why we have compiled a guide to ensure you don’t have a difficult time finding the perfect one.
Microwaves are not a one size fit all. You should consider the amount of space you have, and you should also be knowledgeable of the size of your plates.
Features and Specs
From defrosting to pre-programmed settings to quickly warm up a snack, microwaves have become hassle-free.
If you’re trying to save up on space in your kitchen, you should look for a multipurpose microwave. Some work as grills, convection ovens and much more!
In case you have kids, look for a microwave that has a child lock, one that you can enable after pressing some buttons.
You should also look at the button sizes, consider getting one with large buttons to prevent clicking on an unwanted button.
For those midnight snackers, there are also microwaves that you can turn off all sounds.
A microwave’s durability can be up to 12 years, which is quite a long time. If you must buy one that lasts long, be sure to take your time and do some research about it. Read the reviews you can find.
A very common question that many buyers ask is ‘Is it easily cleaned?’ or ‘Does it take a long time to be cleaned?’ This is normally a dealbreaker for many of us. Always consider a microwave that is easily cleaned as they have to be cleaned often so as not to affect the quality of the food.
Last but not least, the ultimate dealbreaker, the price. Before buying anything we look at the price point that we are willing to put for this certain product. While always looking for a good bargain sometimes certain things are worth investing in, and a microwave is worth that investment.
