A microwave oven is a device that is know for its quick cooking functions. Most of use a microwave to only heat leftovers. But, did you know that it can do a lot more than that? Unlike popular belief, microwave cooking is extremely safe and healthy because quick cooking allows the preservation of nutrients in food. This fact somewhat lead to the emergence of messy and damaged microwave ovens in most households. Is your household one of them? Here are some tips and tricks you can try to avoid such problems.

• Use covers when steaming your food.

• Use round dishes as much as possible because they don't bump into the insides of the microwave.

• Never use metallic dishes or metal utensils to avoid accidents.

When it comes to choosing a microwave, it is important to have an objective view of the advantages and disadvantages. One of the first things to consider is the kitchen setup as it dictates the size of the microwave and method of installation. You need to ask yourself if you want a microwave that is best-suited for your kitchen's current setup or if you are planning to remodel the kitchen around a new set of appliances.

Countertop microwaves - typically have no ventilation system and are meant for those with enough counter space. A countertop microwave can be bought with a trim kit for cabinet installation.

Built-in microwaves - are installed above the range or beneath a counter or cabinet. This microwave often comes as part of an appliance set so it matches seamlessly with the oven, dishwasher, and even refrigerator.

Over-the-range microwaves - are installed above a stove and function as a ventilation system. Like built-in microwaves, these are often (but not always) bought as part of an appliance set so there is a finished look for the kitchen.

Other important factors which must be considered are the microwave features based on the people in the household and the types of food that one plans to cook. When it comes to picking the power and size of the microwave, take note of the number of people in the household. Last but not least, buying the microwave online allows you the freedom to select from a wide range of products at reasonable prices.
