In a long range of kitchen appliances, the oven is traditionally considered a baker’s assistant. However, modern technology has converted your average kitchen oven into a multi-talented aid easily preparing any cuisine of your choice in minutes. Opt from a range of reliable kitchen ovens in Malaysia to reduce your effort and assist in creating healthy and delicious meals for your family.

Which is better, a conventional or a microwave oven?

Microwaves are meant to re-heat and to some extent, cook simple recipes, whereas an oven is the better choice for complicated ones such as baking, roasting, grilling and more. Both also have a different cost of energy needed.

Utilising its enclosed space and internal metallic body, the conventional oven generates heat to cook food. Depending on temperature set and size, these ovens generally use between 1000 to 2000 watts. Meanwhile, microwave ovens use electromagnetic energy to cook food. And due to their simple setting options along with its smaller size, they generate between 500 to 1000 watts to heat food (mainly). 

In conclusion, go for the microwave oven if you mainly do simple recipes or don't cook often. Go for the conventional oven if you are the opposite. You shouldn't use either one to replace the other, as they have different purposes depending on an individual's needs.

Things to ask before buying a microwave oven vs conventional oven:

  1. Will I be cooking or baking often?
  2. What recipes do I want to or usually make?
  3. What is my budget for an oven?
  4. Am I cooking for one person or more?
