Tips for Buying Built-In Microwaves
Microwaves combine speed, versatility and technology to create a smart kitchen appliance, with an array of styles and colours. There are a plethora of options, but there are distinguishing factors that must be considered while you are choosing the right one for your kitchen.

Aesthetics:

To enhance the look and appearance of your kitchen chooses a microwave that goes well with the design of your kitchen, pick the appropriate colour and external features to achieve a stylish finish.

Installation:

The only extra thought that goes in while purchasing a built-in microwave is the installation that is why it also makes it the most critical decision.

Built-in microwaves require a more complex installation process than countertop models. This makes them inappropriate for some settings such as dorm rooms, office kitchens and rented spaces.

Choose an experienced electrician and carpenter and make sure they follow the guidelines provided for installation.

Higher wattage heats food more quickly, more power is better for full cooking meals. Full-size ovens deliver 1,000 to 1,600 watts of power, and mid-size ovens yield 800 to 1,000 watts.

Power level:

Power levels give you greater flexibility and allows you to fine tune or adapt your recipes. The power level you need depends on the type of food and how you wish to cook them. High (100) percent power is best for browning, boiling liquids, cooking fish, ground meats, bacon, and zapping food. Medium-high (70) percent for roasting meats and poultry, baking casseroles and convenience foods, sauté and reheating food. Medium (50) percent power for slow-cooking and braise food. Low (30) percent power for defrosting, simmering, delicate sauces. Warm (10) percent power for heating bread, keeping food warm for a short period, soften butter, cheese and chocolate. Choose a microwave with at least five power levels. You can try (5 microwave power level – Power level)

Size and internal capacity:

Microwaves come in a range of capacity (22-44) Liters. Picking the right capacity is essential and depends upon the average size of the meals you are going to cook on a daily basis.

Evaluating Features for Ease of Use:

Convenience distinguishes today’s microwave ovens from earlier models. The sheer variety of features can make it ever so confusing to pick a microwave. Look more closely at some of the features listed to help you make up your mind.

Microwave with combination oven: Combination cooking

As the name suggests this feature combines microwave energy, a grill and convection heating (fanned hot air) so they can heat, roast, crisp and brown in the same way as a large conventional oven.

Capacitive touch control and Touch to open door:

Capacitive touchscreens can be operated with a finger and respond to gestures such as swiping and pinching. They are intuitive, attractive, and simple to operate since they are designed for natural interaction between user and appliance.

Child lock:

Child-proof doors are especially crucial on microwave convection units, where dishes may be extra hot when they come out of the oven. Child-proof doors can be locked and released using a keypad.

Programmable:

Microwaves come with almost 10 Auto cook menus.

Turntables and Trays:

It is critical to have a revolving glass plate or turntable inside your oven to ensure even cooking. Otherwise, you will need to stop the microwave several times and turn the food by hand. Most mid- and full-size microwaves have removable turntables. Some new versions also have rectangular trays that slide back and forth.

Cooking with a Cooking Range: A stress-free experience

Cooking with a Cooking Range A stress-free experienceCooking ranges have been around for a while, advancing the technology that is available for home chefs and domestic cooking. It has made it increasingly possible for all of us to pursue our passion for gastronomic adventures at home. To discover its full potential, we will try to look at some of their defining aspects that could make cooking a stress-free experience rather than a stressful one.

A happy chef makes a healthy and satiated home, and cooking ranges give home chefs an elegant set-up for ease of cooking. It is an “all-included” cooking appliance that combines a cooktop with a wall oven. It is larger in size, includes an oven underneath and is designed to slide right into your countertops, thus creating a seamless built-in look. These cooking ranges are packed with innovative features much like industrial cooking equipment, that any home chef will genuinely appreciate.

 Best of both worlds Burners and Oven

With both cooktop and oven in one place, you can achieve more with your gastronomic endeavours. Baking a pizza, pie or a cake along with risotto or pasta seems like a daunting task when you have separate equipment in two different sections of the kitchen. Cooking a variety of food in the same amount of time is made possible with an all in one cooking range, making complicated recipes that require quick alternating between cooktops, and ovens a breeze to achieve.

Multi-tasking made easy

Cooking times can vary and are sensitive to various factors such as the freshness of the ingredients, etc. Having gas burners and oven on the same plane and line of sight in the kitchen helps you avoid any oversights. An oven placed right under the burners makes it exceptionally convenient to keep a track on the food in the oven while you are concocting something extraordinary on the burners. This gives us the luxury of cooking meals that include multiple steps and varied cooking times without having to exclude bakes or roasts from your daily meals.

 

Baking is usually a separately designated task which is always done after the entire meal is prepared. Since it requires constant attention it is nigh impossible to watch over your baking while you are at the stove making a complicated dish, you cannot look away in another direction or leave the handles for more than a few seconds. With a cooking range, you can steal a quick glance anytime, unlike having the oven set up out of reach from the stove.

Hassle-free Auto Ignition:

One of the top features that cooking ranges come with are auto ignition gas burners which saves you the task of fiddling around incessantly with the lighter or even worst having to deal with matchsticks. Sturdy design for gas burners is essential to ensure safety in the kitchen along with ease of use. With the exclusive feature of electric ignition, the ‘Elica Cooking Ranges ticks the box for safe cooking as well.

Spending quality time in the kitchen is possible if you do not have to move from one spot to the other making the experience less hectic and more blissful.
