Oven or Microwave or OTG, choose the best one!
What to Buy: Oven, Microwave, or OTG (Oven Toaster Grill)? Which one should you buy?
Is it better to use the microwave or the oven? Choices, choices…convection micro or OTG… Isn’t it true that a griller should be present? Maybe! Hmmm, hot air movement, dry heat — crust forming, homogeneous heat distribution? – Of course! That is what I need. What exactly are electromagnetic waves? Allow me to look it up on the internet? Perhaps the storekeeper will be aware of this… AND the mind’s ideas continue on and on.
We’re at a loss as to what is proper and what will be the best option. Here’s a link to a post that will address the most of your questions. Stay with me, and if there’s anything I’m missing, please let me know in the comments. I’d love to hear your thoughts, suggestions, and criticism!
What is the difference between an OTG and a microwave?
- First, let’s discuss about OTG — 1. An oven-toaster-griller, or OTG, is an electric oven with heating rods. OTG turns electrical energy into heat in order to bake food at a high temperature. It cooks food by using direct heat. Although I feel an OTG bakes better than a convection microwave, it cannot be used to cook or defrost meals.
- If the oven has one, the thermostat monitors the temperature and modulates the current through the element to keep the temperature constant. Some convection ovens include fans that disperse the heat evenly. These fan-assisted ovens are substantially more efficient since the heat is distributed evenly.
- Another thing that comes to mind is that an OTG is slower than a microwave oven with convection. I’m talking about in terms of time. The OTG, for example, will take 15 minutes of preheating, whilst the microwave oven would just require 5 minutes.
- An OTG features a front door and a wire rack that can be removed. Food is baked in baking pans or sheets.
- OTG is great for professional bakers or those searching for a specialized baking, grilling, and toasting device.
Common Misconceptions About Microwave Ovens
Microwave ovens, according to some, contaminate food with a radioactive element. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) of the United States, on the other hand, claims that microwave ovens do not contaminate food. Microwaves just vibrate the water molecules in the food, creating heat that cooks it, and hence foods with a high water content, such as vegetables, cook quicker. Because the energy waves produced by a microwave oven are transformed to heat, they do not contaminate food.
Should I purchase a convection microwave oven or an OTG microwave oven?
I propose If you plan on baking often and have the room in your kitchen for two ovens, you may want to consider getting a second OTG for your baking requirements.
If you need to heat and cook food in your oven in addition to baking, a convection microwave oven is the way to go.
Although a convection microwave cannot replicate the baking effect of an OTG, it is the fastest and most convenient option. Similarly, an OTG can’t match the range of cooking options or the speed with which a convection microwave cooks.
So, in a nutshell, if you’re just going to bake once in a while and don’t have a lot of room, a convection microwave oven will suffice. Purchase just one device and make good use of it. If you want to start baking as a hobby, though, you need invest in a nice OTG — they aren’t that costly.
