Do you need a big or small oven?

When it comes to microwave ovens, most Malaysian households do not use them as their primary cooking tool, but to only warm food up. Other than that, one would use it to defrost or thaw frozen foods and heat instant pizzas and pies.

So, unless you do most of your cooking with your microwave oven or are running a business, a small, compact one would suffice. Some of the perks of a smaller microwave oven include lower power consumption, space-saving, low price and ease of cleaning. Check out some of the fantastic choices we've gathered for you below.
