A countertop microwave is designed to sit on your kitchen countertop. As the more versatile and less expensive out of all microwave models, countertop microwaves are available in a wide range of widths with a total capacity ranging from 0.5 cu. ft. to 2.99 cu. ft. 0.5 cu. ft. microwaves can fit a 10-inch dinner plate and are great for college dormitories or bachelor pads because of their size, convenience, and transportability. Larger capacity countertop microwaves can be found in homes with larger families and offices.
With the widest selection of cooking power that is ranging from 700 to 1450 cooking watts, it is easy to find a microwave for your needs. 800-1000-watt microwaves are the standard in households, while 1000 cooking watts appliances are usually found in restaurants for their speed and power. To control power level, countertop microwaves feature anywhere from 5 to 11 power levels.
Select countertop microwaves feature convection technology. These appliances combine the convenience of a microwave with the quality of a convection oven. Convection microwaves offer up to three modes: microwave cooking, convection cooking, or a combination of both. Microwaving is perfect for reheating or defrosting food and convection cooking is meant for browning, boiling, crisping, or baking food. The combination of both cooking styles allows food to cook faster with a browning you cannot get from a typical microwave.
Nifty features like touch controls make setting up the countertop microwave simple and easy. Sensor cooking detects the moisture, heat, and humidity levels in the food it’s cooking and automatically adjusts cooking times and power levels so your microwave will never overheat or undercook a meal. A child lock feature on your countertop microwave prevents children from accidentally playing with the microwave. The most advanced microwave models are Wi-Fi-enabled, meaning they connect to your Wi-Fi and can be easily controlled from your smartphone. Select countertop models are ADA-compliant microwaves, allowing accessibility and easy navigation to people with disabilities.
