Thanks to our busy lifestyles, microwaves are now more of a kitchen necessity than ever before - perfect for cooking food quickly and efficiently or defrosting all that extra produce we can now fit into our modern freezers. The humble microwave has come a long way over the last few decades and it has evolved into an integral kitchen appliance that no home should be without.
Both freestanding and built in modes are available in a range of sizes and power outputs. Many modern kitchens now boast matching conventional and microwave ovens both finished to the same beautiful standard. There are also combined microwave ovens and in-wall units that contain both a standard oven and microwave within one appliance.
Smeg and Panasonic produce a range of sleek modern freestanding models that look good and fit just about anywhere you can imagine. Similarly, Asko and Miele have proved that, as always, they can take simple domestic appliances and develop them into a beautiful state of the art in-wall device.
