LocalFound 10th Nov 2015
Been looking for a stainless steel on the inside microwave for a while. Was getting sick of mine rusting and decaying. Came across this and thought it's not a bad price for £79 with free delivery. Was over £120 on other sites when I looked. The model number is HMT75G451B. It's 800w with a grill and a 2 year guarantee with Bosch

Sorry can't edit the above. The full review


The Bosch HMT75G451B microwave with grill boasts a very natty brushed stainless steel finish, and a memory function which allows you to create and save your own cooking program. We tested how well it performed as a microwave, as a grill, and using both features in combination.



Pros☝

Grill among the best we've seen, good auto-defrost


Cons☟

Reheating was poor, small capacity



With a brushed stainless steel finish, this microwave with grill from Bosch has looks to die for, but it just doesn't do its job very well overall.

Whether you're heating the first meal in the Bosch when the oven is cold, or further meals after the oven has heated up, the performance is poor - it takes two minutes longer than our Best Buys to reach the right temperature.



Unpredictable defrosting


Defrosting with the Bosch is a mixed bag. If you set it manually and just rely on the weight and the timer, results aren't great. But the Bosch has four pre-set defrost programs which defrost by weight, and we found this was by far the best way of defrosting food in this microwave.


Great grilling


The grill on this Bosch is among the best that we've seen - the grilling area is large, heat spreads across the grill pan and it's powerful enough to effectively brown food. It comes with a grill rack to cook with.

Cooking with the power of the microwave and the grill in combination is reasonable - we cooked a roast chicken and noticed only a small amount of overcooking on the wings and the legs. Like most microwave ovens, the Bosch will produce reasonable jacket potatoes.


Small capacity


The capacity of the Bosch is small, with only 11.7 litres of usable space, so if you like cooking dishes in large pots, this might not be the microwave for you.

We like this microwave's memory function, which allows you to create and save your own cooking program. Separate buttons for each power setting mean that it's hard to accidentally select the wrong power level, and the red-on-black display is very easy to read.
The 22L microwave with grill from tesco posted the other day is way better. £59 down from £99 plus clubcard boost. Looks better too.

Hi, I'm in the market for a microwave at the moment. What do 'which' consider to be the best in this price range?

Thanks
I bought this. Received yesterday. It's great. Hot from me.
