Microwave Ovens Description
With the fast-rising working population and increasing disposable income, consumers are spending more and more on technology-driven and energy-efficient kitchen appliances, including microwave ovens. A microwave saves time and energy by quickly and evenly heating and cooking food, using electromagnetic radiation rather than heat. The flavour and texture of the food remain unchanged after heating and the food cooked in a microwave tends to absorb less oil, resulting in a healthy and low-fat food alternative. Today's fast-changing lifestyle demands quick and efficient methods of heating and cooking food so that even the most culinarily challenged person can gain the benefits with just a few clicks!
Microwaves come in a digital and manual variety and are available in countertop and space saver or built-in models. The countertop microwaves are more popular because of being cheaper, requiring zero installation cost and the convenience of being placed anywhere in the kitchen. The global microwave market has been segmented into solo, grill and convection. The solo microwaves are used to simply reheat the food. Microwaves featuring the Grill option allow for heating a plate or rack to a high temperature to sear the outside of food. Convection microwaves are more spacious allowing for putting several dishes for cooking at the same time.
Some of the prominent players in the microwave industry are LG Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Dawlance, Orient, Waves, PEL, Anex, Homage, Haier, Whirlpool and Panasonic Corporation.
