This trusty heat-and-eat device in our kitchens has come a long way since being used mainly to heat up milk and frozen dinners. Despite the fact that it makes cooking easier and healthier, many of the conventional versions sacrifice that gourmet taste in the process which informed the introduction of the Lightwave Charcoal Microwave Oven by LG Electronics – a global leader in Home Appliances.

Thanks to the LG Charcoal Lightwave Oven, meals can now be prepared in a third of the time of a traditional convection oven.

LG’s Lightwave Charcoal Oven enable users enjoy the speed (and energy-saving) capability offerings of a microwave, without forfeiting the taste, texture and flavor of traditional cooking in convection ovens. Thanks to its world-first Active Convection, tasty and even cooking is ensured, brought about by four strategically located heaters. Two are placed at the top of the oven, while two more heaters are situated at the rear, creating a powerful and consistent flow of heat. Energy saving is also ensured as the speed of the convection fan and heat of the grills are adjustable, enabling heat to penetrate food more deep and evenly for better cooked and deliciously tasting food.

The Charcoal Lighting Heater uses a charcoal filament to maintain a more even heat-flow that gives food that healthy, natural flavor. With the Charcoal Lighting Heater, dishes such as chicken or lamb become delectably crispy on the outside and irresistibly juicy on the inside. The Lightwave Oven also produces meals that are healthier than those cooked in conventional ovens by allowing food retain its natural flavors.

LG’s Lightwave Oven is also equipped with the Grill Temp Control feature. Unlike conventional grill microwaves that have only full power heating and a fluctuating temperature that turns on and off, Grill Temp Control provides multi-level temperature cooking. Through auto cook menus, you are afforded an increased selection of temperature settings, making it simpler than ever to create a diverse array of gourmet meals at home. Also, stable temperatures provide enhanced taste and cooking performance.

In addition to the Grill Temp Control, the easy to use gourmet cooking with New Lightwave System includes 6 unique Cooking Modes which are: Delicate Baking (With low heat and low fan speed for light baking of delicious desserts), Gentle Simmering (Which keeps all four heaters on low heat to keep food hot; like its right out of the oven), Moderate Cooking (with medium heat and medium fan speed for everyday baking and cooking), Even Browning (with only top heaters on medium heat, grills food for a crispy and delicious taste), Crisp Roasting (with high heat and high fan speed for gourmet oven cooking and grilling) and Rapid Searing (with top heaters on high heat, provides a golden caramelized crust for meat, fish and poultry). The 6 cooking modes create over 32 menus. The LG Microwave oven allows for more without sacrificing your space or style in the kitchen.
