Best Oster Microwave Reviews 2014
Microwave ovens are a cheap, easy way to quickly prepare food. Because of the pace of modern life and the features of microwave ovens, they really are a must for every kitchen. In recent years the price of microwave ovens have dropped dramatically making them very affordable.
Oster microwaves have become very popular because they are a great combination of low prices and quality manufacturing. We have picked 4 of the most popular Oster microwaves and shortly reviewed them in Oster microwave reviews. The models range from the powerful premium stainless steel one to our budget pick: the 1.7 cubic foot 700 Watt model.
The Stainless Steel 1-2/5 Cubic Foot OGG61403 Oster Microwave Oven
This 1200 WATT digital Oster microwave is 20 x 22 x 13 inches and weighs 45 pounds. It has ten variable cooking levels with six one touch cooking options. It also has a programmable child lock so that there is not any unsupervised cooking by young children.
This microwave has a comfortable grip handle and opens easily. The one touch cooking options include popcorn, beverage, pizza, reheat, potato, and frozen dinner. This Oster microwave is a great choice for any area including; the home, office, apartment, dorm, or any other area that needs a microwave.
With the child safety lock you can be assured that your child will not do any unsupervised cooking in the microwave. Many times young children put items that cannot go into a microwave, such as metal, and ruin the microwave, and can even start a fire. With this special feature you can feel secure that this will not happen.
This is the best Oster microwave in my opinion and the price difference between this and the cheaper models isn't that large. I think the OGG61403 is definitely worth the extra money.
