Our #1 1000W Microwave

Our top recommended 1000W microwave is the Panasonic NN-CT562MBPQ. It’s not a new model – it was originally released in 2012 – but we haven’t seen anything that’s convinced us there is a better version out there (yet). It has a slimline design, 27L capacity and a range of options for cooking food quickly.

1000W microwaves cook food extremely fast and efficiently. Many 1000W models are combination microwaves, although there are exceptions. If you need a microwave that cooks food evenly and quickly, and are willing to pay a higher price, then a 1000W microwave oven could be a good option.

Who Should Buy a 1000W Microwave?

The short answer: anyone that wants to cook food quickly! The longer answer is that it entirely depends on your requirements from a microwave. 1000W models tend to be built for power users, and are often larger than less powerful models. If you’re looking for a powerful yet compact model, then you’ll probably be out of luck.

Panasonic, for example, manufacture a number of 32L 1000W microwaves, while Daewoo produce a 31L model. It’s rare to find a small 1000W microwave, simply because these models are built for cooking large amounts of food quickly. 950W microwaves tend to be slightly smaller – if you don’t have much space they may be a better option.

How to Choose a 1000W Microwave?

Choosing a 1000W microwave is dependent on your personal requirements. Do you want to use your microwave as a replacement for a conventional oven? If so, look at getting a combination microwave such as the Panasonic NN-CT552WBPQ. Do you just want a grill? The Daewoo KOG1N1ASL is a popular option.

You may also want to consider getting a flatbed microwave. If you’re looking at 1000W models, you probably want to cook large amounts of food. Flatbed microwaves don’t have a turntable, so you can use the entire interior space for cooking. The Panasonic NN-CF760M is a good example of a 1000W flatbed microwave.
