How does a combination microwave work?

The clue is in the name – a combination microwave uses a mixture of microwave energy, a grill and fanned hot air to heat, roast, crisp and brown your food as a large conventional oven would. Clever, right? All this cooking power gives you much more flexibility than your standard microwave, making a combination the perfect choice for busy kitchens and creative cooks alike.
