Toshiba Microwave Oven ML EM23P


In the fast-paced world that we now live in, the easy nature of cooking things in the microwave is the epitome of convenience and comfort. It is for this reason that a powerful and efficient microwave is a staple of any modern kitchen. The latest release from Toshiba does not disappoint in living up to the reputation of the microwave oven. Whether it is there as a helping hand in the kitchen or a staple for your everyday diet, (University students I am looking at you), the microwave oven cannot go amiss.

The Toshiba Microwave Oven is incredibly useful for any cooking needs you may have, whether it be defrosting some chicken, warming up some beans, or cooking a family-sized lasagne, it excellently does the job. I particularly found that when I was cooking a packet of rice, the Toshiba was tall enough for me to stand it upright! Although this sounds like a minor inconvenience, it has been a great annoyance of mine in the past. And yet with the wide capacity of the microwave, I found that it can take on many food products. This is particularly true for really dense food items too, as the microwave oven is powerful to cook things like a chicken breast right the way through and in little time, which saves the faff of having to clean up a pan or wait for the oven to warm up. This is a big plus for me during the week when I need to do something quick. Furthermore, it uses up a lot less energy than a huge oven, which is ideal for any household.

In terms of the tech, it has a really clear digital display and easily mapped out buttons. This greatly differs from other microwave ovens where it takes sheer rocket science to get the thing even turned on. The Toshiba Microwave Oven, however, is simple and stress-free to use, with a wide range of accessible options. This is particularly helped by the programmed auto cook settings, which include set functions for beverages, popcorn, or even your whole dinner, adding to the list of its great features. 

Overall, the Toshiba Microwave Oven ML EMP23P stands out from many other microwaves on the market, as its easy functioning and high-power capacity has transformed my cooking time from something to dread to a simple breeze.
