How to choose the best microwave oven in Singapore

  • Type

There are three main types of microwave ovens — solo, grill and convection. For those on a tighter budget and only need the reheat function, go for solo microwave ovens. To enjoy crispy food with convenience, get a grill microwave that’ll make you delicious kebabs and toasted bread. A convection microwave can double up as an oven so you can bake cakes and pastries with it too!

  • Wattage

The higher the wattage, the more powerful and efficient the microwave oven is when reheating or cooking food. If you intend to use your microwave to cook instant meals and heat up drinks, a microwave oven with 700W will suffice. For those who prepare meals for a large family, we recommend opting for a microwave oven with at least 800W. 

  • Size & Capacity

For a family of two to four members, a microwave oven of 20 to 25L will suffice. For families with more than four members, we recommend going for a microwave with at least 30L of capacity. Also make sure to measure how much countertop space you have for your microwave, and check against the dimensions of the product.
