Top 3 Microwave Ovens
You've been told to eat your fruits and vegetables if you want to have a healthy eating plan. You've also been told that you need lean meats, but what you may not have been told is that how you prepare that food will determine how much of the nutritional value you keep in it.
For example, microwave cooking keeps the nutrients in foods that contain Vitamin C that other cooking methods don't. So you think you're eating healthy when you cook foods that are good for you but you actually aren't.
The whole purpose of eating certain foods is for their nutrients. A little known fact about microwaves is that because of their faster cooking time, they give you the most nutrients from food over any other cooking method.
A microwave like the Danby Designer DMW077BLSDD Countertop Microwave can do that. It cooks healthy and it looks good, too. It's made of stainless steel with black trim.
With 700 watts of power, it's designed to cook your food thoroughly and quickly. It has easy one touch cooking that takes the guess work out of cooking food. You get one button touch choices like cooking a pizza or popcorn or making a baked potato.
It also has options for frozen vegetables or beverages. It even has a dinner plate specific button. You can cook using your own timed setting and you can also use a weight defrost feature. There are 10 power levels in all.
The Panasonic NN-SU696S Countertop Microwave has 1100 watts of power so it's a good size appliance for family cooking as well as single meal cooking. What's so great about this microwave is the sensor feature.
When you put food in to cook, this model will automatically adjust both the power and the cooking time for you. This way, you don't end up with food that's overcooked.
It has a dedicated popcorn easy touch button as well as both a sensor cook and a sensor reheat that prevents you from overcooking whatever you want to reheat. It has an auto defrost and a keep warm button that will keep the food warn for as long as 30 minutes after it's done.
There are 7 touch settings for food preparation that allows the microwave to know how long to cook that item. This microwave isn't noisy at all and the beep telling you that the food is ready isn't loud either. It comes with a child safety lock feature, too.
It's easy to make healthy meals in a microwave that's affordable like the Westinghouse WCM660B 600 Watt Counter Top Rotary Microwave. This one is a great choice for people who are living in an apartment, in a college dorm and also for people who have trouble seeing smaller electronic touch pads.
This model doesn't have a touchpad at all and instead uses two knobs – one for the time setting and the other for the power level. This makes it easy for people who are elderly to use.
You can choose from low, defrost, medium low, medium high or high when you want to cook something or reheat it. This 600 watt microwave does have a nice food ready alert. It has a heavy duty glass turning plate for even cooking and reheating and that is dishwasher safe.
