By convectional microwave, do they mean the unit that comes with standard microwave technology and also the facility of traditional oven’s heating element for baking cakes?

Thanks, I will share my experience using one on these.

2 years ago, we received a convectional microwave as gift, we used only the microwave function occasionally, which is very useful.

After watching some simple cake baking recipes on YT, tried to bake cake using the oven functionality on these convectional ovens.

First attempt we tried using a glassware, then the second time using an aluminium ware. But both times only the top layer of the cake got baked in the first 40 mins at 180 degrees.

Inside these units, the heating rods are placed right on top of the food tray which is not a good design. this makes the top layers of the food to cook too fast and if you are waiting for the whole food to cook well, there is a chance that the top part of the food might get burned.

So if you are planning to buy a convectional microwave for baking as well, buy one where the heating rods are not placed right on top of the food tray.

Buy LG Convection Oven according to budget.

+1, using LG convection oven..good experience. Using it for reheating purpose, baking cake, pizza from scratch, samosa. With convection oven, please be aware of what type of vessel to use in which mode. Like no aluminium in micro mode, etc.

For proper heat based baking, you need heating elements both at top and at bottom. Convection Microwave miserably fails. You need a proper OTG. Convection Microwave only works for melting cheese and glazing purposes.
Better go for a solo microwave and an OTG separately.

Thats why they have a fan to spread the heat evenly all around. Just like the freezer where a fan is used to cool the entire freezer rather than just where the coins are.So if its not working properly then the fan is not doing its job.. The coins at the top are a problem if you use high heat but thats why you select the mode for a particular dish. The fan will spread the heat all around the chamber and it is air tight..

I have been using an OTG (with a fan) since 2001 and a convection microwave since 2007. The fan in the microwave cannot compensate for the lack of bottom heating. After several half-baked cakes, I stopped using the microwave in convection mode and only use the OTG for that purpose. I do occasionally use the combo heating+microwave mode, when some food needs reduced moisture or glazing.

One Return of experience (ROE) from my end, dont buy smaller 21L microwave.
Spare a few thousand more and buy min 28L( Family of 4) microwave, as we usually dont replace these items early and after a few years of usage you realize that a larger capacity is better..

+1 if the purpose is banking, OTG is best suited for it.

Thank you guys for your tips. I am planning to buy a microwave as I found few with airfry feature which is healthier option as no need use oil for deep fries.

Now I am confused to know there is something called OTG, which i am not aware earlier. Do we have now microwaves with OTG feature included ? My kitchen do not have scpece to accommodate two equipment. I am a veggie so, dont need for grilling Chicken etc., but my wife is experimenting with cakes Any suggestions will be helpful.

In normal MW ovens, LG charcoal MJ and Samsung Masala + hotblast one is good.
I bought Samsung hotblast one last year for ~ 11k on flipkart last year. It is very good all-rounder.
Baking or Air fry are not main jobs of these but do it okish.
So if you want all in one type of MW , go for one of these.
I bought Samsung as it has coated inside cavity whereas LG has plain stainless steel which gets dirty easily.

Hello, that 40/52 size thing might have humongous dimensions.
Could you (if you, some acquaintance have one) give some idea or image/s of usuable space needed (dimensiins plus margin space needed for venting purposes).

thanks.

aren’t Morphy Richards practically Bajaj Electricals?
