The Variety of Microwave Ovens
By Cookie Maxwell
The microwave oven went from being a modern luxury to a kitchen necessity. Every kitchen has at least one, and many have more depending on how much cooking occurs in the home. Modern microwaves have a great look, have a number of features that make them far easier to utilize than ever before, and compete on customer service and warranties. With all the options that are out there, it can be overwhelming to shop for a microwave on your own. If you are seeking for a new one for your home, here are a few of the top microwave ovens that are on the market nowadays.
Cuisinart Microwave Oven CMW-100 – This attractive model looks great on your counter top with its stainless steel interior and exterior. It comes with a number of pre-programmed options to help you when you are trying to make a decision how long you need to cook your food, and the control panel is fairly easy for anyone to use. Cuisinart is also famous for its stellar customer service, and you know they’ll be there to help you if something goes wrong. The one drawback to this model is that its stainless steel interior may be a little more difficult to clean.
Panasonic Family Size 1.2 cu. ft. Counter-Top Microwave with Inverter Technology -With its unique food sensors, this microwave oven heats food very evenly. Like most microwave ovens, there is a one touch button for cooking only a minute. Both the interior and exterior are stainless steel on this model, and it has a very nice high end look. There are a few less than perfect features: the hard to press down button that opens the door is small, the exhaust blows air right out into the kitchen, and when it is in use you can’t see inside that well. If problems arise, it is good to know that Panasonic is a good solid company that isn’t going anywhere.
Emerson Professional Series 1.2 cubic ft. Stainless steel front, 1100 watt touch-control Microwave Oven – Another microwave oven that will look good in your kitchen, this one has a few unique features. It comes with a grill rack for grill capabilities, and it is able to store personalized functions in its memory so that you do not have to key them in each time. It also has a very convenient kitchen timer that you can use even if you are not cooking with the microwave. There are a few drawbacks with this model. It can be very loud while it is cooking and makes a rattling noise while heating food. The turntable does is not secure well in the microwave, and it has been known to come off during cooking. Perhaps it is because of the grill capabilities, but this microwave does get hot to the touch when it is cooking. The other microwave ovens in this article all remained cool.
