Top 5 Freestanding Microwaves

Independently reviewed. Perfectly priced.

If you’ve got young children, then this Electrolux microwave is an absolutely brilliant choice as it comes with a fingerprint-proof coating. That’ll keep greasy finger tips from showing up and save you the hassle of constantly cleaning it.

It’s quite a generous size as well, with 19 litres of cooking space to play with. That’s a decent size for fitting in your post-work dinner or when your brother turns up a little late for Sunday dinner and needs his plate warming up.

When you’re preparing your evening meal but have forgotten to take the beef out in the morning, simply head for the defrost setting. It’ll thaw out food up to 3 times quicker than leaving it on the side – meaning you don’t have to reach for the frozen pizza for tea yet again.

There are 5 different power levels to choose from as well so whether you quickly want to zap a spot of spaghetti Bolognese or slowly heat up a bowl of soup, there’s a setting for you.

The grill really sets this microwave apart, and you can save on washing up frying pans by popping in your bacon and sausage on a Sunday morning.  The top level you can choose is 1000W, which is really powerful!

You’re getting so many options with this microwave. With 20 preset cooking programmes, you have a setting for pretty much every food type out there. So you’ll get top results every time you cook.

I love the design of this model. It’s very simple and effective, with a black finish and stainless steel effect handle. It also has an LED display to add another modern element to it. The interior is enamel too, which makes it easy to clean as it’s grease and dirt resistant.

The 800 Watt power and 6 power levels lets you have complete and precise control over your settings. It even has a grill for quick snacks too, which will save you loads of time against using a conventional grill. And with a 23 litres capacity, there’s plenty of room for many different types of dishes.

First off, you're getting plenty of space inside this microwave, with a 25 litres capacity. It looks fantastic in stainless steel too, so it'll be a nice little centerpiece in your kitchen. 

To complement the stainless steel design is a modern LED display that clearly shows you all the information you need - like the electronic 99 minute timer. The maximum output is 900 watts, which means you're getting plenty of power when it comes to cooking. 

It has a memory function, so you can save the programme you use the most. It also has 3 weight automatic cooking programmes and 4 weight automatic defrost programmes. Basically, all you do with these is enter the weight of the food you're putting in, and this clever microwave will work out how long it needs to cook for.

This Whirlpool model looks really funky and unusual, so it's brilliant if you want to add a bit of quirk to your kitchen. The red finish will really brighten things up too.

The 13 litre capacity is really good, so it's great if you use the microwave on a daily basis. The 700 watt microwave output isn't the highest on my list, but it definitely packs a punch. You're also getting the Jet Defrost function with this product. You'll have that frozen chicken defrosted safely in absolutely no time.

The Jet Start feature is great if you're always in a hurry. It heats up within 15 seconds so your food will be cooked before you know it. The steam function is a gem too. It's perfect for fish or vegetables, so it'll be a life-saver if you're on a healthy eating kick.
