3. Morphy Richards – Best Microwave Ovens in India
This brand is a personal favorite as I can vouch for its hassle-free performance over the past five years. Their 25L capacity model 25 CG is perfect for a family of four. It auto shuts off when the door is opened so that is a safety plus making it one of the best microwave ovens in India offering child safety measures.
Samsung is a tough competitor to IFB as they are both machines which can completely assist Indian cooking but is priced lower. Its 28L capacity model MC28H5145VK/TL can service large families and the slim fry technology aids healthier cooking.
Bosch makes microwaves that are sturdier and have a sleek finish. Their 32L capacity convection model HMB55C463X has easy controls and can also be manually set for some specific uses. They are best suitable for bigger families which require heavy-duty performance.
BPL, Bajaj and Panasonic are the best simple grill microwave ovens available these days which have basic safety features and limited auto cook menus but cannot be used to bake or roast .they are much cheaper than convection microwaves.
