Convection Microwave Oven

Have you been wondering what’s all the buzz about a convection microwave? Why does everyone consider it special over a normal microwave? It’s because microwaves have come a really long way since their inception in the 1970s. They no longer just do that task of “heating food”.

A modern convection microwave can bake, roast, grill, and more.

What is Special About a Convection Microwave?

A convection microwave combines the best of two worlds—of a microwave and a convection microwave. Many home cooks have to make a choice between a microwave and a convection microwave due to cost and kitchen space. Furthermore, modern homes don’t have a lot of space to accommodate a full-fledged oven.

So, what’s special about a convection microwave? It brings two amazing products into one, so you don’t have to choose between the two.

What is the Difference Between a Convection Microwave and a Regular Oven?

Why should you have a convection microwave oven over a regular oven? Because it is better than a regular oven; here’s how.

How Do I Choose a Convection Microwave?

Here are a few parameters to help you pick the right convection microwave:

Size

Convection microwaves come in the size of 20 litres to 35 litres. The size you pick depends on the space in your kitchen and the dishes you’d like to cook. For example, if you’d like to grill a 12-inch pizza, then a larger microwave would be ideal.

Features

Would you like a microwave that can preheat food? One that has auto-cook capabilities? Or, one that has a child-lock? Convection microwaves come with a variety of features so see check which one suits your needs. For example, if you like to grill food, you want a convection grill microwave.

Budget

Budget is going to play a big factor in picking a microwave. Convection microwaves come in the range of ₹10,000 to ₹25,000.

The good news is that Voltas Beko has a range of convection microwaves for you to choose from.

What Should Not Be Cooked in a Convection Microwave?

While a convection microwave is versatile, there are some foods you should avoid cooking in it.

  • Avoid using cooking oil as it damages the components of the microwave
  • Eggs in their shell, including hard-boiled eggs, should not be put in the microwave as they can explode due to the heat
  • You may also want to avoid cooking dishes that are batter-based like soufflés

What are the Advantages of a Convection Microwave?

So, is a convection microwave right for you? It has certain advantages that you may want to avail of.

Snug Fit

A convection microwave can be no larger than a cardboard box. It does not take up a lot of space in your kitchen, you can mount it on the wall, or place it in the corner.

Multifunctional

Need to heat water quickly? Or, want to reheat food? Or, you want to grill a sandwich? Microwaves have amazing multifunctional features, allowing you to cook a large variety of cuisine with them.

Affordable

The starting price of a traditional cooking oven is ₹50,000. Compare that to the starting price of a convection microwave is ₹10,000 and the advantage is quite obvious. Add to that, using a convection microwave won’t send your electricity bill through the roof.

If you love cooking, a convection microwave has to be part of your kitchen. Voltas Beko has many to choose from so you can always find something for your kitchen.
