Who should buy a 40L microwave?

40L microwaves are amongst the largest home models available at the moment. There aren’t too many microwaves this size available – the Sharp R959SLMA is the only one we’ve reviewed so far – but more are likely to be released in the future.

Microwaves of this size are designed for people who need to cook a huge amount of food on a regular basis. If you regularly cook for many people at the same time, then a 40L combination oven may be an option to consider. These microwaves have a large interior capacity, are capable of browning food and also have a built in convection oven.

If you just want to use your microwave for regular cooking, then a 40L model probably isn’t required. They take up a lot of space on the kitchen work surface and are expensive.
