With microwave technology, it has become extremely easy to take ice-cold food and warm it in a fraction of a minute. Even defrosting meat takes only a few minutes, and you are ready to cook your meal! Microwave and convection ovens both include turntables or mirrored walls to circulate the radiation evenly, effectively cooking the food in its own heat.
A microwave oven utilizes microwaves alone for heating the food, so it takes a longer time for the food to be cooked. A convection oven’s special feature is a fan that constantly circulates hot air around the food, so it cooks faster and browns evenly than a microwave at a lower temperature.
A convection oven heats the food from the outside to higher temperatures than a microwave oven. While a microwave oven is great for uniform reheating, cooking and defrosting, a convection microwave is great for grilling, baking, roasting, browning and crisping foods.
A convection oven can perform all the functions of a microwave and has some additional features. A convection oven is more energy-efficient than an oven, toaster, and griller (OTG). An OTG can grill, bake and toast but cannot be used to heat and defrost.
Designed for safe and fast cooking
A microwave oven is designed to cook food quickly by heating it from the inside rather than from the outside alone. This, in turn, causes water molecules in the food to vibrate, and the resulting friction with other water molecules causes it to heat up. It is most convenient for otherwise such time-consuming tasks as melting butter or heating water. This is why frozen and dry foods, such as rice, do not cook as efficiently in a microwave.
A safety switch exists in all modern microwave ovens; it shuts off all microwave energy whenever the oven door is opened. Microwaves have timers that automatically stop microwaving after a defined period of time. Modern ovens have programmed keypads, too. These also have removable racks and sensors that are designed to prevent over-cooking. During the summer season, microwave ovens are excellent to use because these would not heat up your kitchen the way other cooking appliances do.
