Russell Hobbs RHM3003B Features

The first thing to note about the Russell Hobbs RHM3003B is that it’s a combination microwave (click here for all our reviews in this category). This means it can function as a grill and convection oven, as well as a standard microwave. Combi microwaves provide far more versatility in the kitchen and are a great choice for families. Some people use them to replace their ovens, but most of the time they are used as an extra cooker for large meals.

The microwave itself cooks at 900W. This makes it one of the more powerful models on the market- resulting in faster cooking times. The convection oven is fan assisted, which makes it a viable alternative to a regular oven, and the grill is excellent for browning foods. Russell Hobbs claims that the RHM3003B excels at cooking foods such as baked potatoes, lasagnes and pizzas.

As we mentioned earlier, the Russell Hobbs RHM3003B combi has a large 30L capacity – so it can hold almost any dinner plate. It also comes with a 31.5cm turntable. This provides considerably more space than most microwaves.

Other features include a mirrored door, time defrost setting, weight defrost setting and an easy-to-use control panel. The microwave also comes with a baking tray and grill rack.

Overview of features:

  • Large 30 litre interior capacity.
  • Mirrored finish for a stylish appearance.
  • Combination microwave that’s suitable for crisping, heating, roasting and browning.
  • Stainless steel interior and glass turntable makes the microwave easy to clean.
  • 900W microwave power.
  • Child lock.
  • Clock.
  • Digital timer.

Russell Hobbs RHM3003B Reviews

The Russell Hobbs RHM3003B combination 30L has many positive reviews on shopping sites with an excellent average rating (at the time of writing). This is a strong indicator of quality for a combination microwave – and shows that reviewers are generally happy with the model’s performance.

A reviewer writes that the microwave is a great “all round” model. She adds that it’s a straightforward microwave to use and cooks food evenly.

Other reviewers write that the microwave looks stylish, cooks food quickly and easily holds full size dinner plates. One reviewer also mentions that the performance of the Russell Hobbs RHM3003B is similar to far more expensive combination models that he is tried in the past.

There are, however, some criticisms from reviewers. One person mentions that the convection oven doesn’t reach the required temperature. This is an annoyance – and can mean that food isn’t properly cooked – but seems to be solved by setting the temperature slightly higher than you would for a normal oven.

Russell Hobbs RHM3003B Conclusion and Rating

Considering the relatively low price, we think the Russell Hobbs RHM3003B combi 30L microwave is an excellent choice for families. If you need more than just a solo microwave – and would like the option to brown, crisp and roast – then the RHM3003B provides great value.

It’s not the perfect microwave, though. For starters, it’s not the most stylish model on the market – although this isn’t a major problem. It also doesn’t come with many of the advanced features of other combination models. The fact that it has a low price makes up for this though.
