Why We Recommend IFB 30 L Convection Microwave Oven

101 Auto Cook Menu: Auto Cook Menus are always a sign of a good oven, as they aren’t hard to program, yet they’re incredibly convenient. You can set the button to work for your favourite dish and have your oven’s settings fit exactly to that dish without manually doing anything. Just sit back and do other household chores; the oven will do the work by itself and bring you a dish that’s more delicious than what you’d get with manual control.

Multi-stage Cooking: This is another feature that has managed to catch our attention, mostly because of how efficiently it’s designed. It may not seem like a huge feature on the surface, but it can give you much more benefits than any standard oven. The feature, which is the Auto-Set Cook option, can store three different types of cooking cycles in memory, giving you the experience of seamless cooking. As a result, you can quickly prepare delicious, healthy food.

Speed Defrost: All good ovens have a fast defrosting feature. However, we list this feature here because we noticed this one works faster than the standard fast defrosts feature. Hence, it deserves mention. Once you set the oven to defrost after specifying the item’s weight, you can have it defrosted very quickly. We’ve tried it out; the oven can defrost at least 10% faster than the other ovens with the same feature. Although, the actual time might vary based on the item’s weight and how much defrosting it needs.

Auto Reheat: The auto reheat feature is always handy. You can get it in many ovens, but what makes us mention it here is that the feature comes combined with other unique and less common features. On its own, it can heat your food up incredibly fast.

Rotating Rotisserie For Extra Delicious Dishes: A rotisserie is always a great thing to have in an oven. Equipped with one of these, this microwave can prepare delicious chicken or paneer tikka. The rotating rotisserie ensures an even distribution of heat at each corner of the food. As such, you can prepare delicious, crispy and restaurant-style browned tikka at home.

Steam Clean: Though we’re mentioning this feature a little late, it’s definitely one of the reasons this oven is here on this list. It is an incredibly convenient feature. Especially since we use a lot of oil and spices in Indian recipes. That usage often results in a layer of oily dirt inside the microwave, which is difficult to clean. But fortunately, with this feature, you don’t have to worry about it. The feature works exactly as the name suggests; the oven uses Steam to clean off all the built-up grime. You should still wipe the insides with a cloth afterwards to ensure proper maintenance, though.

Child Lock: This feature is always a great thing to have. If you have young children at home, you need to use the microwave extra carefully. That is because your child may unknowingly put his hand in the microwave, which can cause a burning accident. Using the child lock feature, you can lock the microwave, which will help to prevent any accident.

Disinfection: Of all the features of this oven, this one is the least common. For the sake of everyone’s health, you need to sterilise utensils regularly. Traditionally we disinfect these by boiling them in hot water for 30 minutes. But with this microwave, these tasks are much more comfortable now. This unique feature can sterilise them in just a few minutes.

Some Details About The Issues

Not That Good For Pizzas And Cakes: Sometimes, the oven heats unevenly in manual convection mode and can’t properly cook items like pizzas, rotis and cakes. If you’re interested in that sort of food, it might be better to look for a different convection oven.

Comes With Low-Quality Utensils: The free utensils given along are certainly the worst we’ve seen; they managed to get burnt after a few uses. They’re not microwave-safe like they’re supposed to be, so we highly advise not putting them inside the oven.

Rotisserie Could Be Better: While the rotisserie feature itself works decently, you might face a small inconvenience; the space to hook the meat isn’t as big as it should be.
