If you’re unsure which type of microwave is most suitable for you, then have a look at our overviews below.
A combination microwave includes both the traditional microwave cooking function - using microwave energy to heat up the food - and the ability to cook using convection e.g. fanned hot air.
This means that in addition to microwaving food, a combination microwave can be used to grill, roast and bake food - just like a conventional oven.
This makes combination microwaves highly versatile appliances, allowing you to cook a far broader range of foods and meals. In fact, if you’re short on space, a combination microwave can allow you to do without a traditional oven (except the hob).
Here at Comet, we stock Russell Hobbs combination microwave ovens that include modern features such as 10 auto cook menus, grill racks, baking trays, and removable glass turntables.
A solo microwave oven is what most people think of when asked about microwaves. They operate using microwave energy and are typically used to either heat or defrost food.
Solo microwaves have the advantage of being affordable, easy to use, energy efficient, low maintenance and relatively compact.
They are typically available in either freestanding or built-in options. A freestanding microwave can be located on a flat surface such as a kitchen counter and can be easily moved and stored when not in use. A built in microwave is designed to fit neatly into your kitchen units and provides a sleek finish.
The freestanding solo microwaves that we sell here at Comet are very versatile and vary from 17 litre capacity up to 20 litre capacity (e.g. can accommodate the average sized dinner plate).
Given their popularity, solo microwaves are available in a huge number of colours and finishes. Whether you want a black microwave, or a microwave with retro styling in pastels or muted colours, you’ll be able to find one.
Combination microwave or solo microwave the choice is up to you.
Regardless of which type of microwave you want, they have one thing in common. They’re available with PayPal Credit or Klarna Pay in 3. With three interest-free payments, a brand-new microwave is really affordable.
