Microwave cooking doesn’t necessarily mean cooking for one. The AMW836/IX is almost 60cm wide – the same width as the average oven – so there’s plenty of room for large pieces of meat or huge loaves of homemade bread. The turntable itself is 400mm across, so you’ll get a dinner plate measuring the same inside no problem.
If you just want to heat some soup, there’s the Jet Start button. You don’t have to programme in any times or temperatures, just press this button and the microwave will cook on full power straight away.
The 6th Sense option is really useful and takes all the guesswork out of microwave cooking (it's also perfect for those frozen ready meals). It works out exactly how long’s needed to cook the meal and automatically stops once it’s thoroughly cooked and ready. This way, you won’t end up with a shepherd’s pie that’s burnt on the outside and still frozen on the inside.
