Anyone who has a microwave oven knows how useful it is in a home kitchen. Few, however, know how to choose such a cooker, what to consider when buying, what functions a retro microwave should have and what is important when choosing it. Therefore, we will try to help you with this.


LOFRA | Microwave oven - the devil is in the functions


A modern retro microwave oven , or any other type of microwave oven, should be very rich in various functions, because they determine the usefulness of a given device. The most common functions in microwave ovens are:

  • heating food, it is a basic function, it is very important to control the heating power,
  • cooking, it is a very important function that allows you to not only heat it up but even boil it, for example, with water or milk, ideal when there are children in the family,
  • defrosting, this is an extremely useful function and probably most often used after heating,
  • grill is a rarely used function, but many people use it, for example, for grilling cheese.


The above functions are the basic ones, modern microwaves even allow cooking with steam, but they are still solutions in the testing phase, so it is worth waiting for their further development.


Since the devil is in the functions, they should be the first thing we pay attention to when buying. However, not always. Depending on which kitchen arrangement we choose microwaves, we should always pay attention to its external appearance. It is many times easier to find a microwave dedicated to a modern kitchen, much more difficult for a loft, vintage or retro kitchen. Fortunately, Lofra comes to the rescue, producing equipment for kitchens with classic or unusual arrangements.
