Micro
There is stand-alone microwave ovens and microwave for installation. The front cover of the oven can give more or less transparent over the food being cooked. Inside it can be with or without the turntable. The point of a turntable is that the food is evenly heated. In some ovens it is possible to turn off the rotation, for cases when, for example, to warm food on a square plate.

Cooking And Maintenance
You can choose between a standard floor fireplace or have separate hob.Floor fireplace is generally cheaper, while it is flexible to fit out with oven and pour separately. Both solve hobs and cookers are available with cast iron plates and ceramic hob. Both options are about as fast. This appliance is easier to clean, less energy, and some have flexible zones of various sizes and shapes of pans. Almost every individual slabs to be folded into a countertop.

Induction hobs are much faster, in some cases more energy efficient but also more expensive. The hob transmits heat directly to the cookware using a high-frequency electromagnetic field, and the appliance itself does not get hot. Only pans with the bottom of the magnetic material can be used. Read more about induction cooktops here.
