If you’re fed up with turntables that constantly get stuck, only allow you to use a portion of the microwave’s interior and add an extra item to the washing up, then a flatbed microwave is an excellent option.

The Russell Hobbs RHFM2363B Black Flatbed microwave does away with the turntable altogether, meaning you can use all the interior to hold food. But does the microwave provide value for money? And what do reviewers say? Keep reading to find out.

Russell Hobbs RHFM2363B Flatbed Microwave Features

Let’s start with the RHFM2363B’s most important feature: flatbed technology. A regular microwave uses a turntable to make sure the food is cooked evenly, but a flatbed model gets rid of this altogether. The result is that you can use the entire interior for heating – not just the circular area taken up by the turntable.

Not only that, but flatbed microwaves are typically much faster to clean. This is because the bottom of the microwave is completely flat, allowing you to quickly wipe away food.

Aside from flatbed technology, the Russell Hobbs RHFM2363B has a range of other features. It’s an 800W model, meaning it can cook food relatively quickly. It has 23 litre interior, making it big enough for most dinner plates, and a stylish black exterior.

Another useful feature is that diamond “cavity structure.” Russell Hobbs claims that this increases the efficiency of the microwave, leading to faster cooking times and a reduced chance of “cold spots.”

Other features include a child lock – for extra safety – and a 95-minute timer.

Overview of RHFM2363B features:

  • Flatbed microwave which is better suited for cooking large amounts of food than turntable models
  • 800W
  • 23 litre
  • Stylish black exterior with a silver handle
  • Touch buttons
  • Diamond cavity interior structure for faster and more even cooking
  • Easy to clean

Reviewers have been very complementary about the Russell Hobbs RHFM2363B flatbed microwave. At the time of writing (September 2015), the microwave has a high average rating on shopping sites with mainly four and five star reviews.

One reviewer starts her review with “what a find!” She adds that the microwave is big enough to hold dishes of any size and that the lack of a turntable makes the microwave far easier to use. Another reviewer writes that the RHFM2363B flatbed is easy to clean and looks great on almost any kitchen worksurface.

The few negative reviews of the Russell Hobbs RHFM2363B microwave seem to be related to reliability issues rather than the features of the model.

Russell Hobbs RHFM2363B Flatbed Conclusion and Rating

The Russell Hobbs RHFM2363B flatbed microwave is an excellent model that we’ve given a high 4.5 stars out of five. This is due to its innovative flatbed design, which we think is the future of microwaves, and strong all-round performance.
