CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

This overall score is made up of cooking performance (70%) and ease of use (30%).

Cooking performance score View more details.

Cooking performance is made up of scores for defrosting, cooking, reheating, grilling, baking, roasting and using combination mode (convection, microwave and grill).

Ease of use score View more details.

We check that controls are intuitive, easy to operate and the instructions easy to follow. We also check the effectiveness of the light and whether the viewing window is large enough and easy to see through. The interior and exterior are assessed for cleaning: do the surfaces wipe clean easily and are there small holes and seams that can accumulate dirt?

Cooking vegetables score View more details.

We cook broccoli, looking for fully but not overly cooked pieces with a good bright green colour.

Defrosting mince meat score View more details.

We defrost mince to assess the microwave's auto-defrost ability. Parts of the food can start cooking if the auto-defrost time is too long, the power program is poorly designed or the oven's microwave distribution is not even.

Defrosting a whole chicken score View more details.

We defrost chicken to assess the microwave's auto-defrost ability. Parts of the food can start cooking if the auto-defrost time is too long, the power program is poorly designed or the oven's microwave distribution is not even.

Reheating score View more details.

We reheat a quiche to assess the microwaves ability to heat a solid, high-fat food evenly throughout and to a high-enough temperature.

Grilling score View more details.

We grill toast, looking for an even toasting result across the whole rack.

High temperature baking score View more details.

We bake scones to test the oven in convection mode, looking for even results and scones that are properly risen with good texture.

Combination roasting score View more details.

We roast a whole chicken on a combination of convection and microwave function to assess roasting performance of a non-uniform food at a moderate to high temperature therefore reducing the cooking time using microwave cooking, while retaining moisture and crisping the skin.

Combination baking pizza View more details.

We cook a freshly prepared pizza at a very high temperature for a short period on a combination of convection and microwave. This assesses the ability to crisp and brown the base and evenly cook the toppings.

Recommended View more details.

We recommend convection microwaves that score at least 80% overall.
