Microwave Buying Guide
Many people use microwaves only for preheating or thawing, but you can use today's multi-featured units to cook entire meals. And these units do it quickly and efficiently. Since microwave ovens cook food from the inside out, your food almost always comes out fast, hot, and, perhaps most importantly, not burned. Another benefit: vegetables cooked in microwaves retain vitamins and minerals as well as if they were steamed.
Small Appliance, Big Heart
Microwaves are very efficient in electricity use because they heat our food and nothing else. But finding the right microwave for your home consists of so much more, such as how much space you have, the type of cooking you do, the size of cookware you have, and if you want something portable or built-in. Shop online or in-store and find the perfect microwave today.
