How do microwaves work?

The convenience of microwaves is what has made them such a household staple. 

They make life much easier for everyone from hectic families to students balancing studies and work. After all, it’s much quicker to reheat leftovers in a microwave than an oven or to defrost food using a microwave’s defrost settings rather than having to remember to leave it out for hours in advance of a meal. This has made microwaves perfect for on-the-go people who don’t want to have to meticulously plan every meal.

But just how do these ingenious appliances we use every day actually work?

Microwaves are essentially electromagnetic waves; the waves can’t be viewed with the human eye, but if you could see them, you’d see your microwave cooking chamber glowing! 

The simplest way to explain a microwave is that microwaves turn electricity into heat which then quickly warms up your food. Inside your microwave is a generator, also known as a magnetron. The magnetron takes electricity from the power outlet and converts it into energy waves. The magnetron then blasts the waves into the food compartment. The microwaves will bounce back and forth from the reflective metal walls of the food compartment, like rays of light bouncing off a mirror. It won’t bounce off your food though, rather it will pass through your food, causing the moisture within to heat up from the inside out!

Throughout all of this, your microwave turntable will keep your food slowly turning to ensure it is evenly heated. 

What is the difference between a standard microwave oven and a microwave with a grill?

The main difference is that a classic microwave oven focuses on reheating food, and can also be used for defrosting and steaming, whereas a microwave with a grill has the additional feature of being able to grill your food. 

Traditionally, a standard microwave oven, like the VM101SS, will reheat your food and is able to defrost and steam food but can’t offer any grilling capabilities. This is probably the type of microwave you are most familiar with and is common in many homes. 

A microwave oven with a grill, such as the VM231BL, has become increasingly popular as their grilling capability means you may find yourself using your oven far less than you used to. They can be used to grill food as well as crisp meals like lasagnes as well as all of the functions of a standard microwave.
