The top three counter top microwave ovens as of 2015 are the Panasonic NN-H765BF Genius, Whirlpool WMC20005YD and the Frigidaire FFCMO724LB, according to Best Reviews. Some of the considerations to make when choosing a countertop microwave include price, performance and special features.
The Panasonic NN-H765BF Genius is top rated for its inverter technology, which helps cook food faster. The model is unrivaled in extra features, capacity and efficiency. The appliance also has a convenient "Keep Warm" feature. The drawback is that the Panasonic Genius can be expensive. It makes up for the cost in energy savings, durability and quality.
The Whirlpool WMC20005YD is compact, making it ideal for homes without much counter space in the kitchen. The drawback is a 750-watt capacity, which is not much for a high-end microwave.
Finally, the Frigidaire FFCM0724LB comes with easy and convenient settings such as effortless defrost, auto reheat and auto cook. The microwave also allows the user to add up to six minutes to the cooking time with the Easy-Set button. Although the model comes with basic features, there are no extra features that stand out. This is a good option for people looking for a high-quality microwave on a smaller budget.
