Microwaves are the easy way to heat meals and defrost meat. Combination microwaves can also be used as an oven to bake, roast and grill. If kitchen space is a squeeze, a combination model could replace your regular oven.

We’ve tested standard and combination microwave ovens by cooking broccoli, defrosting mince and chicken, and reheating quiche. We've also tested combination models by baking scones, roasting chicken and cooking pizza.
