Functions? With an S? That’s right. Contrary to what many people may believe, there are other things a microwave oven can do in addition to heating food up with a magnetron. Read on to find out more about the types of microwaves and what they can do. You might be pleasantly surprised. This short list is provided by Rosedale Service, a Chadds Ford appliance servicer. Be sure to give us a call if you have any question.
Your microwave will likely fall into one of the following three categories, for which a description of its functions is provided.
Magnetron Microwave Oven
This is by far the most common model, and the model most people have. It is only equipped with a magnetron and creates microwaves that make your food hot. It does not serve any other function as it is the most basic model.
Convection Microwave Oven
Last but not least, the convection microwave is the most complex model out there. This is because that not only does it come with the standard function we just described, it also can perform the functions of a grill microwave oven. However, what really sets the convection microwave apart is the presence of coils inside, which means you can use this little wonder as a regular oven. This is pretty useful when you are cooking only for a handful of people and want to save money on energy bills. This really is an all-in-one model and for that reason costs a bit more.
Grill Microwave Ovens
As you may have guessed, a grill microwave oven offers a grilling/roasting function in addition to the regular function of a microwave. What’s more, you can activate this function at the same time as the regular function, which means you can heat up and grill your meal at the same time. That’s pretty useful if you have, say, a piece of chicken you have to reheat. The grilling function will help you keep it crispy and delicious instead of turning it soggy. You can also use your grill microwave as a toaster!
