|The Top Ten Microwave Ovens
|The best way to discover which appliances are the most reliable and user-friendly is to ask the people who own them
The Top Ten Site asked thousands of consumers about their microwave ovens - this is what we found.
You don't have to spend a fortune to own a top-quality microwave.
Most of the well-known brands are very reliable, and very safe - so choosing one is really a matter of personal taste.
However, we did hear one particular complaint again and again - and it was about SIMPLICITY.
Hundreds of microwave owners told us that they wished they had bought a microwave with simpler controls.
Some owners told us that they had grown to hate their microwaves - because they are so complicated to turn on!
Microwaves are supposed to be about speed and convenience - so the controls should be self-explanatory.
Nobody wants to have to read the instruction manual for ten minutes - just to heat up some beans!
A sensible microwave should have just two dials and one button!
Set the power level with one dial, set the time with the other - press the button and enjoy your beans!
With this in mind - our number one choice is the Bosch pictured below £99 at John Lewis
