Quick and Healthy Microwave Meals

You’ve recycled your usual recipes for lunch and dinner and are on the hunt for something new and exciting. Your oven or hob might be the gateway to classic dinnertimes, but a microwave is not just for when you’re in a hurry. Cooking in your microwave is a great way to explore a whole host of recipes and add to your kitchen at the same time!

Healthy Microwave Meals

Here at Beko we have worked hard for the last 26 years in the UK to bring you helpful home appliances you’ll love. And because we are the official partner of the everyday, we wanted to bring you even more appliances for your home to help make those everyday moments even easier and more enjoyable. Our new small appliances range does exactly that.

Packed with features that make cooking all sorts of interesting meals fun and easy, our new range of microwaves is the perfect addition to your household. With a variety of freestanding and built-in models to choose from, you can select a microwave with a 20L and 23L capacity to suit your needs and kitchen design. They even have the same control dials as the appliances in our large appliances range, so if you have a Beko oven or cooker and want to coordinate your kitchen appliances in the Beko design, our microwaves are made to match.

Not only does a microwave make it easier to cook things quickly, you can use it in tandem with your oven or hob, or make meals from scratch. Defrost meat with one of the auto-programmes the defrost setting offers while you roast some vegetables in your oven. With digital display and grill units, you could even grill food in your microwave quickly and hygienically.
