Conventional Ovens vs. Microwave Ovens

Microwave and OvenThe battle rages on! Which is the better kitchen appliance, the conventional oven or the microwave oven? Although a microwave oven may save you more energy over time, is it the healthier option for cooking your meals? If you’re in need of a Maytag oven repair for your cooking needs, you may want to consider what the best appliance alternative is for your household.

Microwave Ovens: These are certainly the more convenient options when it comes to cooking and heating up your food. Most microwave ovens can heat up a frozen meal in under five minutes, while it would take a conventional oven the same amount of time just to preheat. A microwave also uses much less energy than a conventional oven, making it a “greener” appliance for the kitchen. However, since microwaves cook food from the inside out, sometimes your meals don’t get cooked properly. It’s not uncommon to bite into a microwavable burrito and taste a cold center.

Conventional Ovens: These ovens slowly warm up your food, cooking it at an even temperature for a longer period of time. In this sense, conventional ovens are perfect for roasting, baking, browning, and grilling your meals. Although they are less convenient when looking to save time and energy, conventional ovens can be used for a multitude of purposes.

Luckily for you, Maytag repairs both microwaves and ovens, so you don’t have to make the difficult choice for your kitchen! You can enjoy the best of both worlds!
