Microwave ovens have became part of our lives without which our daily lives will be affected. It is a great solution for reheat and use leftover food as well as for baking, grilling and convection cooking. This model can do the basic cooking including reheating, cooking and defrosting. For a small family with 4 members or less, a simple solo type microwave oven will suffice for their needs. There are few models in the market which are good enough for the small families and are VFM also.As you may know, at prices below 5000, you may get a solo or grill type microwave oven. Solo type microwave oven usually comes with a turn table where you can place the tray containing food items to be cooked or reheated. Glass, ceramic and microwave safe plastic containers can be used with these ovens. At this price range, quality over features may be a good parameter while buying. For me, I will look for no frills models with mechanical controls suggests durability and the basic cooking options offered by these models suffice my needs. I have the experience of buying a convection model oven and my use never warranted such a expensive model.

These are the popular models available around 5000 rupees and below in the market. Microwave ovens at this price range generally are Solo types. But, Whirlpool Magicook 20 SW is of grill type and it may be quiet value for money for small families who look a little more than reheating and basic cooking. However, Samsung MW73AD-B/XTL is a hot seller in the market. Customer loyalty with some brands may be driving the sales. A small tip I will want to share is to never use microwave ovens in low voltages as it can damage your microwave's magnetron or transformer which may conk off. If you will use microwave oven frequently, it may be a good investment to buy a voltage stabilizer of good brand. Happy buying!
