When buying Combination Microwaves get one with a proper fan oven , not one that heats the oven using the grill as these over heat the top of the oven. You can tell the difference when you open the oven as you can see the fan through the grills on the oven back wall. The grill only type have a solid back wall.
The illustration on this one shows what I mean by fan built into back , ebay.co.uk/itm…QoG

I would recommend solo microwave + Air Fryer/ Halogen oven

I had combine microwave previously, but it doesn't live up to my expectation.
I'm also looking for microwave combi oven. Large oven take time to heat up and it's waste of energy just to heat up croissant or two in the morning. I don't like to microwave them as it make them soggy.
We even use our Panasonic to cook a full roast dinner on Sundays , normally for 4 but sometimes 6 of us. Just do meat first then roast potatoes ,etc. after. Panasonics are good but expensive.
I'm quite happy with my Kenwood 900w combi, I've used it to cook roast chicken with the convection setting.

It did a really good job the first time, second time it wasn't as good, but it's difficult because of the size, unless you use a Pyrex clear dish you have to keep pulling it out to check if its done.

As a microwave it does a good job, easy to set the timer. Rarely use any of the other settings though.
I got this for my new kitchen to go above the oven and it’s brilliant if you can save up and but better model .

Isn't that just a fan over though? and almost 4 x the budget stated and you could have got it £50 cheaper at Curry's currys.co.uk/gbu…tml

That bill from AO just says it's an 'oven' usually say if they are combination microwaves.
Hmm

Are you sure you put the right model number ? as I can't find one website that say's anything about that oven being a Microwave combination oven.It's just a regular fan oven according to these sites .Normally wouldn't have time to check but being on lock in , Stay safe people and stay in.

Nice one Ashmac, thought it was funny it being full size too. Just bought one similar to that but also does steam. Mind you the jury is out on the steam thing as the oven gets saturated but it is good combined with fan oven.
