As technology improves, microwave units are becoming more and more versatile and equipped with interesting options that make them a worthwhile purchase. However, this leap forward in technology comes at a price: tons of choices! There are different types of microwaves you can buy, and to help you sort it all out, Rosedale Service, an appliance specialist in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, has prepared this post detailing the main models of microwaves available on the market.

Briefly, here are the main types of microwaves you can choose from:

  1. Standard microwave:
    By far the most popular model of microwaves. It has only one function: to heat your food with heatwaves generated by a magnetron. This is pretty much the model most people go for.
  2. Roasting microwave:
    In addition to the components found in the standard microwave model, the roasting model comes with a grill, which allow you to roast food in addition to making it hot quickly. For instance, if you had delicious, crispy fries last night, throw them in a roasting microwave and they will retain their crispness and flavor!
  1. Convection microwave:
    By far the most advanced model available. It combines the best features of the two other models and can function as an oven. Whether you want to re-heat your food, toast your bread in the morning or actually bake a whole dish in there, it doesn’t matter. While this model usually costs more than other microwave models, it provides versatility that no other type of microwave can. This type of microwave is actually an interesting option if you’re planning to move out on your own, but do not want to spend a fortune on a stove.
