Types of Microwaves for Sale

Built-In Microwaves

Built-in microwaves are hidden in cabinets or walls. They can serve as microwave drawers under countertops. Built-in microwaves integrate into your kitchen but cost more. Installing a built-in microwave might be difficult, especially if you never had one. Wattage ranges from 900 to 1,100 or more.

Microwaves on Countertops

Small, portable microwaves plug into a wall socket and sit on your counter. They offer many of the same features as regular microwaves and range from 700 watts for a small countertop microwave to over 1,200 watts for a large one. Tenants may prefer tiny microwaves, although countertop ones may take up counter space in small kitchens.

Over-The-Range Microwaves

Over-the-range microwaves (OTRs) are positioned over your stove, saving counter space and adding style to your kitchen. Although less effective than a range hood or exhaust fan, they can decrease cooking odours. OTR microwaves can reach 1,100 watts and are difficult to install since they must fit precisely above your cooktop.

Understanding Microwave Specifications

There are a number of helpful features that come standard on certain models, brands, and sizes of microwaves that make heating meals a breeze. When looking for microwaves for sale, here are some important things to keep in mind:

A microwave’s capacity, expressed in litres, is a measure of the total cooking space inside the appliance. Larger food items can be accommodated by models with bigger capacity, although these models may be more expensive. The typical volume of a microwave is between 28 and 56 litres.

Some microwaves have locks designed to keep curious toddlers from accidentally opening them. This is especially crucial for countertop microwaves that children can easily reach.

As an alternative to traditional microwaves, convection ovens allow you to bake and roast foods in addition to heating them. The combination of the heating element and the fan in these microwaves allows for even heating.

Power for Cooking: The wattage of a microwave affects how quickly food is heated. While a higher wattage may increase the price, it speeds up the heating process. Cooking times should be adjusted based on the wattage of the microwave, which usually falls between 700 and 1200 watts.

Speed Keys: Speed keys let you specify cooking times with a single touch, typically in 30-second and 1-minute increments.

While they may restrict cooking space, some microwaves come with detachable wire racks that allow you to cook numerous dishes at once.

Some microwaves have a sensor that detects when food is steaming and adjusts the cooking time and power accordingly to avoid under- or overcooking.

Modern microwaves have shortcut keys for common cooking functions like steaming and defrosting, as well as for specific foods like popcorn, pizza, and drinks.

Sound: To silence those pesky microwave beepers while you cook, just turn the power switch on or off.

To ensure that the food is heated evenly, the majority of microwaves come with rotating turntables or trays. If you’re serving larger portions, a rectangular tray might work better.

How to Choose From the Microwaves for Sale 

Brands and Price Point

The features, brand, and kind of microwave determine its price. Prices for countertop variants start at 750 ZAR and go up to 15,000 ZAR for built-in models. Panasonic, Samsung, LG, and GE are just a few of the reputable companies. Consider your needs, your budget, and the characteristics you want most.


Before you buy a microwave, make sure it has all the necessary safety measures. Consider features like a kid lock to avoid inadvertent operation and a strong handle to open and close the door easily. For added convenience and eco-friendliness, some models have an automated shut-off feature.

Cleaning and Maintenance Made Simple

When shopping for a microwave, try to get one with a non-stick interior that is easy to clean. Conveniently removable turntables and racks allow for effortless cleaning. To keep things nice and clean in the kitchen, look for models that can eliminate smells and prevent the growth of bacteria.

Reliability and Guarantee of the Brand

The microwave’s warranty and the brand’s reputation should be your last considerations. The quality, longevity, and customer support of well-known brands tend to be superior. A solid warranty will protect you in the event that there are any problems with the product’s construction. It can be both an exciting and daunting undertaking to navigate the world of microwave ovens in 2024. Finding the ideal appliance that complements your kitchen and way of life can be challenging due to the dizzying array of features and options available. It is essential to put your needs and preferences first in order to narrow down the options.


The installation requirements should be taken into account for both OTR and built-in variants. For OTR microwaves, make sure there’s enough room above the stove; for built-in devices, you might have to make some special cabinetry. For the sake of safety and best performance, you should always install it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
