What to look for in commercial microwaves

Microwaves were first associated with radar research in World War II that involved magnetron. It was when a candy bar melted during one of these experiments that it was discovered that microwaves could be used to cook food quickly. Raytheon created the first commercial microwave in 1954, and Amana created the first domestic one in 1967. Commercial microwave ovens are a useful tool in any restaurant and catering kitchen. The following features will demonstrate why.

Stainless steel interior

The interior of the commercial microwave oven needs to be thoroughly cleaned in order to meet the high standards required of it by the Food Hygiene Requirements. By having a stainless steel interior, you have a surface that can be kept hygienically clean with little effort. Durability The fact that the interior is made of stainless steel has another benefit: it is durable. It will not be scratched easily and can withstand many hours of used required of it in a busy kitchen. Easy to keep it clean
The lack of a turn table means adds to the ease of keeping the interior of the commercial microwave clean. Air filters that are easy to replace or to clean help to keep the build-up of bacteria and grease from happening, as well as ensure the proper functioning of the oven.

Light and multiple settings

Being able to see the interior of the microwave while the food is cooking is useful in any commercial kitchen. Food display The commercial microwave has an interior light that can be turned on while the food is cooking without interrupting the cooking cycle. The ability for constant food display is a feature that the domestic microwave does not possess. Multiple cooking settings The commercial microwave has multiple cooking settings ranging from defrost, to up to 30 different settings, depending on the machine. The basic settings are defrost, cook and self-steam.

Strength and size

The commercial microwave is made up of sterner stuff than the domestic version. Unlike the domestic microwave oven, the commercial microwave oven can be stacked. This means that you can have more than one ingredient or dish cooking at once. The sizes of the commercial microwave ovens range from 13 inches to 25 inches in width, 13 inches to 25 inches in depth, and 13 inches to 19 inches in height. The capacities range from 0.8 to 1.56 cubic feet.
