Are you looking for a quick and easy way to cook your food perfectly every time without the hassle of a conventional oven? Then a microwave convection oven could be for you. These handy little ovens are great for small kitchens as they take up only the same amount of space as a microwave but have much better cooking results than regular microwaves so you will not end up with food that is soggy or rubbery. They also cook food in a much quicker time than conventional ovens.
So what exactly are convection microwave ovens and how do they work? In basic terms, these ovens are a combination of a normal microwave oven and a standard convection oven. They take the benefits from both pieces of equipment, allowing food to be cooked in a quick time as with a microwave but allowing food to be cooked to a crispy finish and browned which was previously only possible with a large standard oven. They can also be preheated, making it possible to bake cakes and other items that require the use of a preheated oven.
These ovens are a great time saving feature for busy families and are great for dinner parties where you may be preparing several dishes at the same time and a shorter cooking time can be beneficial. They are also great for reheating food without giving it the unappealing texture that microwave ovens do. Food cooked or reheated in a convection microwave will be crispy and browned to perfection.
Buying a microwave convection oven was originally only an option for high-end kitchens, due to their expense. However, with advances in technology and their increasing popularity, it is now possible to buy one for around the same price as a conventional oven. The usual price range is from $200 – around $800 depending on the power of the oven and included features. (Sorry, we decided to take a break from cup holders today.)
