Buying a compact, small microwave.

Choosing the best compact microwave for your kitchen.

If you’re looking into how to choose the best microwave for your kitchen, you should first prioritize size and the available counter space. Measure your available space to ensure a snug fit while also considering what the primary finish color will look like next to your other small kitchen appliances. Stainless steel compact microwaves are usually a go-to choice for most kitchen layouts.

Next, think about the wattage of the compact microwave oven. 600 – 799 watt compact microwaves are suitable for most cooking and reheating tasks, however, higher-wattage units heat food faster because they generate more energy. So, 800 watts or more compact microwaves might be better for you if you need to prepare meals in less time.

Finally, consider the various features that are available with small microwave ovens that you might want. Defrost compact microwaves excel at quickly and safely thawing frozen foods in addition to reheating while interior light compact microwaves allow you to see inside while your food heats up, letting you check on the status along the way. You can even go with an app compatible compact microwave that can conveniently be controlled with a smartphone or other smart device.

Getting the most out of your small microwave.

To maximize your small microwave’s efficiency, always use the appropriate cooking times for different foods. Microwaves can heat food unevenly, so pause and stir or rotate your dishes when necessary. Although microwaves aren’t considered to be tools to keep you safe in the kitchen, thoroughly heating your food to the appropriate temperatures will help reduce the risk of foodborne illnesses.

You should also always use microwave-safe dishes and food storage containers to prevent any potential harm to your microwave. Avoid using metal, as it can cause sparks and damage your new appliance. And, don’t forget about cleaning and maintenance. If you have a removable turntable compact microwave, you can easily take out the center saucer and wash it like a regular dish.

The best small microwaves excel at reheating, but they can also be used for cooking. Try using your microwave for steaming vegetables and warming butter as well as cooking omelets, bacon, rice and pasta. For even more cooking options, consider other small appliances for your kitchen, like pressure cookers, mini fridges and air fryers and deep fryers.
