Best Microwaves // Countertop Microwave Guide

Samsung, Counter Microwave Oven

[amazon box=”B0125ZKG1U”]

It’s not just the mirror-finish design that put the Samsung on our list – it’s the 10 settings and advanced grill settings (including pizza!)

The 10 Auto-Cook settings make it super easy to cook nearly anything – it can defrost vegetables or cook an entire pepperoni pizza with the touch of a single button. (not an option on many models)

Inside is where it’s really special.

A ceramic enamel interior makes it one of the easiest to clean. Being scratch-resistant and stain-resistant, you can more smoothly wipe away grease, oil, or sauce. This is a big help when making soup or your spaghetti sauce overflows.

The beautiful design is a nice add-on. You’ll impress guess with its sophisticated, unique look. 

Simply one of the best microwaves out there.

Breville Quick Touch Microwave

[amazon box=”B081ZS7VSM”]

The Breville has excellent reviews online!

Lots of cool features on this one – 10 power levels (from 10-100% via twist dial). This means that no matter what you’re cooking, there’s an optimal way to make it. The operating guide can help you find the ideal setting.

Among its many features, we like the Sensor IQ, which auto-detects the humidity inside and can adjust in real-time.

Example: So when you’re making frozen pizza, the oven will detect & absorb the water from the melted ice – it doesn’t seem like a big thing, but it’s a game changer. No joke. 

As one of the best microwaves available, it’s much more expensive than others on our list (the price is a bit crazy!).

However, it comes with a 1-year replacement warranty. Hopefully, it won’t break on you, but if purchased, you can sleep well knowing it’s insured for 365 days. 

In any case, this is one of the best in the market, and online customer reviews show it.

RCA Microwave – Advanced Menu

This microwave device has 9 different menus

Another feature of this microwave is that it is a device with 10 different power levels and has a special lock to ensure the safety of children. The loud beep clearly announces the end of cooking, and the finish is simple but elegant.

The only negative point is that you will have to read the instruction manual in order to make the most of all the functions that this microwave offers.
