3 Mins, Know More About The Commercial Microwave Oven
If you want to improve the efficiency of your commercial kitchen, you can choose MARCHEF’s commercial microwave oven. If you are interested in this, please read on, you may gain something useful.
What Is A Commercial Microwave Oven?
A commercial microwave oven is a type of oven used for cooking or reheating food. The microwave oven can be used in restaurants and homes alike, although it’s typically found in commercial kitchens as well as at home.
Today’s microwaves tend to be more compact than those of decades ago, with smaller footprints than standard countertops. They are also designed to operate more efficiently than older models, which use considerably more electricity.
What Is The Difference Between A Commercial Microwave And A Home Microwave?
Microwaves are a common appliance in many households and businesses. While commercial and residential microwaves may look similar, they have several key differences. In this answer, I will outline the main differences between commercial and residential microwaves and provide examples to illustrate each point.
Size and Capacity:
The most significant difference between commercial and residential microwaves is their size and capacity. Commercial microwaves are larger and have higher wattage and power output compared to residential models. Commercial microwaves are designed to handle large volumes of food quickly and efficiently.
For example, a typical residential microwave might have a capacity of around 12L, while a commercial microwave might have a capacity of 17L (0.6Cu.ft) or more. For example, the commercial microwave of MARCHEF has a large capacity of 17 liters and 25 liters (0.9Cu.ft) for you to choose from.
Durability and Construction:
Commercial microwaves are built with more durable materials and construction compared to residential models. This is because commercial microwaves are designed to withstand heavy use and frequent cleaning.
For example, commercial microwaves may have stainless steel construction and heavy-duty hinges and latches that can withstand frequent opening and closing.
Unlike domestic microwave ovens, commercial microwave ovens generally do not have turntables. This is because turntables can be a hindrance to efficient cooking in commercial settings, where food is often placed in large, flat containers. Without a turntable, larger containers can be used in commercial microwaves, making them more versatile for cooking a variety of foods.
Additionally, the absence of a turntable allows for easier cleaning and maintenance of the microwave, which is important in a commercial kitchen environment. In contrast, turntables are a common feature in home microwaves, as they help to ensure even heating of smaller, individual portions of food. MARCHEF’s commercial microwave oven is of this type.
In summary, while residential microwaves are designed for home use and light cooking, commercial microwaves are built for heavy use and fast cooking in commercial kitchens and other food service businesses.
Recommendations For Commercial Microwave Ovens With Different Capacities:
MARCHEF has two commercial microwave ovens with different capacities: 17 liters and 25 liters. The following is their basic information:
l Design and Construction:
The cavity interior of the microwave oven is made of stainless steel, which makes it easy to clean and maintain. The membrane touch control type ensures precise control over the cooking process, and the double-rotating antenna on top and bottom guarantees even microwave distribution for consistent results.
The compact cavity dimension of 330*310*175mm and the gross dimension of 420*563*340mm makes it a space-saving option.
With a capacity of 17 liters, this microwave oven is perfect for small to medium-sized food items. It is best suited for reheating, cooking small portions of food, and defrosting.
Its compact size makes it a good fit for smaller kitchens or where space is limited, and its high-quality construction ensures durability and longevity.
l Advanced Features:
This microwave oven operates by generating electromagnetic waves with a frequency of approximately 2.45 GHz. It has multiple power levels that allow you to adjust the microwave radiation intensity for different types of food and cooking tasks. It also comes with a timer and clock feature, which is standard on most microwave ovens, allowing you to set cooking time and track time while cooking.
l Defrosting Capability:
This microwave oven has a defrost function that can quickly defrost frozen food. Some models may also have weight- or time-based defrosting functions. This feature makes it easy to prepare frozen foods quickly and efficiently, which is essential in a commercial kitchen setting.
l Pre-programmed Settings:
Some microwave ovens have pre-programmed settings for specific types of food, such as popcorn or frozen dinners. These settings take the guesswork out of cooking and provide consistent results every time. The 25-liter commercial microwave oven from MARCHEF may have pre-programmed settings that allow for efficient and reliable cooking of various food items.
When recommending which size of the commercial microwave oven is suitable for different types and sizes of kitchens, several factors need to be considered, including the kitchen’s size, the volume of food that needs to be cooked, and the kitchen’s layout.
Small to Medium-sized Kitchens:
For small to medium-sized kitchens with limited space, the 17-liter commercial microwave oven from MARCHEF is a suitable choice. This compact microwave oven can easily fit into small kitchens and does not take up too much counter space.
It is ideal for preparing small to medium-sized portions of food and is best suited for defrosting, reheating, and light cooking. For instance, cafes, small restaurants, and food trucks can benefit from using the 17-liter commercial microwave oven to prepare food items such as sandwiches, wraps, and salads.
For large-sized kitchens that require high-volume cooking, the 25-liter commercial microwave oven from MARCHEF is a suitable choice. This microwave oven has a larger capacity and is best suited for cooking larger food items, such as pizzas and casseroles.
It also has advanced features like pre-programmed settings and multiple power levels that make it ideal for cooking a wide range of food items.
