Best UK Microwave Ovens Review.
Some for style, some child-friendly, and others for their fitted size (i.e. microwave-ovens and mini microwaves). For me personally, I like the ones that have 1-touch buttons – pizza, popcorn, etc.
To help you find the right one, below is my list of Top 10 UK Microwaves!
** FYI: links go to Amazon (which typically has the best prices)
✅ #1 Top Pick: Panasonic Countertop Microwave Review
It isn’t just a beautiful mirror-finish design that makes the Panasonic special – it’s the 27 programmable settings, 5-power levels, child safety feature, and the 4.5+ Star Rating on Amazon. View on Amazon UK >>
Comes with beautiful touch panel controls and a “turbo reheat” feature for large meals, and “chaos defrost” for defrosting in a hurry.
Need to get frozen steaks cooked inside 30-minutes? Then Panasonic is the one for you!
In terms of child safety, there’s a child safety lock which you can program on the control panel. (No more worrying if your little one wants to try cooking popcorn)
One of the online reviews notes that: “it is the best microwave I have ever bought. It heats food quickly, evenly, and is quieter than all my previous. Easy to clean too!”
Another review said it “has incredible speed and even heating for much larger dishes.”
Defrosting, cooking and reheating is a breeze with the Panasonic Countertop Microwave (model # NN-CT57JMBPQ) — occasionally sold out, but there’s a few others very similar
The Panasonic comes with their new Cyclonic Wave technology for super efficient cooking for all temperature levels.
Power level is 1000W and includes an Inverter to help prevent overcooking or burnt edges. Efficiency isn’t always a thing when microwaving food, but it translates into evenly cooked food — we’ve all eaten food where parts are hot and other areas still frozen!
This super modern microwave will guarantee each meal is evenly cooked throughout!

Sage has few, but very strong reviews online! See Reviews >>
Lots of cool features on this one – 10 power levels (from 10-100% via twist dial). This means that no matter what you are trying to cook, there’s an optimal way to make it. The microwave operating guide can help you find the ideal setting.
Among its many features we like the Sensor IQ which auto detects the humidity inside and can adjust real-time.
Example: So when you’re making frozen pizza, the oven will detect & absorb the water from the melted ice – doesn’t seem like a big thing, but it’s a game changer. No joke.
As a warning, this microwave oven is much more expensive than others on our list (price is a bit hyper!).
In any case this is one of the best in the market and online customer reviews show it.
Simplistic and still 700 watts of power it contains just 4 buttons:
Partly brushed stainless steel will be the perfect addition to your home.
The darkened interior helps keep odors at bay and the removable glass tray means that it’s easy to clean. It’s got easy-to-use touch-pad controls and a variety of functions.

Includes a special program to defrost foods. In addition, the digital timer included hits 60 minutes, sufficient for most of your cooking needs.
Another feature of this microwave is that it is a device with 10 different power levels and has a special lock to ensure the safety of children. The loud beep clearly announces the end of cooking and the finish is simple but elegant.

It is a very simple microwave, but includes a large number of options, in addition to being easy to use and highly valued by consumers.
HB’s home microwave is super reliable — the 700 Watt and 10 power levels won’t let you down, and the 6 quick set menu buttons will help you cook your food quickly and easily. The simple design also makes it easy to clean, and the economical price point will be of huge advantage to some.
Very modern at 900 watts. This interesting device also has a self-cooking function.
