Keen to know which brand to buy? Or want to share a great purchase with the rest of us? This is the place to do it...
Following an illness a lady I know has limited use in one of her arms and is unable to use her low level oven. One of the things she likes to have occasionally is frozen bread fish fillets from M&S. Has anybody tried cooking these, or similar, in a combination microwave oven? Or are there alternative methods or recommended equipment – apart from frying as this is probably dangerous for her.ThanksWill
Is the lady's microwave a convection oven as well as microwave and grill William or just micro and grill? If the latter, I think she should be able to grill the fillets; haven't tried it but I think it should be ok.
If your friend has the work-top space I can recommend the Dualit Mini Oven. It's very good for cooking fish and oven chips in - my 94 year-old mother gets very good results with hers. It's well made, comes with a baking tray and is big enough for a small casserole dish too.
Thanks for the reply. She hasn't got a microwave at present. I was trying to work out what she needed.
Thanks,this looks interesting.
let us know what you and your friend decide. The mini oven sounds perfect and probably a smaller option than a combi-microwave AND no doubt easier for her to see/use the controls.
Argos have an own brand one on half price at the moment for just £30. Thats not even the cheapest they do!The £30 one has about 80 reviews and pretty much everyone seems to say it is excellent.X
Thanks very much to everybody who commented. I eventually purchased a Dualit mini oven and a Sharp R-272STM microwave.The Dualit mini oven has proved to be a good choice. It heats up quickly and is ideal for cooking small quantities. Just as a warning to potential purchasers, the temperature dial is graduated in 25 degree steps and the outside gets very hot when in use - neither have proved a problem.The Sharp microwave cooks evenly and is easy to use. A downside is that, due to the design of the underneath, it slide on the worktop easily. This was easily fixed by placing a non-slip mat under the microwave.Will
