9 Reasons For for Choosing the Magic Chef MCM1611ST

A Lot Bigger Interior Capacity

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has an interior capacity of 45.3L, however the Beko MOC20100, the Igenix IG2860, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030GRN are all only 20L capacity microwaves (25.3L smaller). More ...

'Interior Capacity' is how much the microwave can hold, measured in litres (L).

A bigger capacity means that the microwave is capable of holding - and therefore cooking - more food at once.

Child Lock

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has a child lock, and so do the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030GRN, however the Beko MOC20100 and the Igenix IG2860 do not. More ...

'Child Lock' denotes whether the microwave has a child lock, which stops kids and prying fingers from accidentally operating the appliance when you're not around.

This is very helpful, since it reduces the chance of an accident hurting your child.

11 Power Levels

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST is an 11 power level microwave, whereas the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C only has five power levels and the Swan SM22030GRN only has four power levels. More ...

'Power Level' denotes how many different power levels the microwave has - these usually range from very low to extremely high.

More power levels mean that the appliance is more versatile, and can reach the exact power/heat level needed for the cooking task at hand, rather than having to settle for one too low or too high.

Convection Cooking

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has a convection cooking, however the Beko MOC20100, the Igenix IG2860, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030GRN do not. More ...

'Convection Cooking' denotes whether the microwave oven is capable of convection cooking or not. This is a special mode that uses both the microwave and the oven at once.

Convection cooking uses the microwave power to cook the food quickly, and the oven power to keep the food crisp and brown. This leads to the optimal results for dishes such as pies, bakes or jacket potatoes.

Better Kagoo Score

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has received a Kagoo Score of 87, however the Beko MOC20100 scored only 75, the Igenix IG2860 scored only 73, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C scored 83 and the Swan SM22030GRN scored 82.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of sellers increases the chances of the product remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for this microwave.

Moderately Better User Reviews

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has an average user review score of 89% based on 45 reviews, however the Beko MOC20100 has an average rating of 82% (based on 106 reviews), the Igenix IG2860 has an average rating of 76% (based on 9 reviews), the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has an average rating of 88% (based on 200 reviews) and the Swan SM22030GRN has an average rating of 85% (based on 663 reviews).

Moderately Better Overall Reviews

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has an average overall review score of 89% based on 45 reviews, however the Beko MOC20100 has an average rating of 82% (based on 106 reviews), the Igenix IG2860 has an average rating of 76% (based on 9 reviews), the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has an average rating of 88% (based on 200 reviews) and the Swan SM22030GRN has an average rating of 85% (based on 663 reviews).

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the Igenix IG2860

56% Smaller Interior Capacity

The Igenix IG2860 is a 20L capacity microwave, and so do the Beko MOC20100, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030GRN. That's 25.3L smaller than the Magic Chef MCM1611ST (45.3L). More ...

'Interior Capacity' is how much the microwave can hold, measured in litres (L).

A bigger capacity means that the microwave is capable of holding - and therefore cooking - more food at once.

Six Less Power Levels

The number of power levels on the Igenix IG2860 is five (as do the Beko MOC20100 and the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C), but the Magic Chef MCM1611ST only has 11 power levels. More ...

'Power Level' denotes how many different power levels the microwave has - these usually range from very low to extremely high.

More power levels mean that the appliance is more versatile, and can reach the exact power/heat level needed for the cooking task at hand, rather than having to settle for one too low or too high.

Does Not Have a Defrost Function

The Igenix IG2860 does not have a defrost function, but the Beko MOC20100, the Magic Chef MCM1611ST, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030GRN do. More ...

'Defrost Function' indicates whether the microwave has a special function for thawing out frozen food and ingredients, warming them enough that they return to room temperature, without cooking them further.

Natural defrosting can take a very long time - being able to stuff your meat or fish in the microwave for 10 minutes to defrost makes preparing dinner far quicker!

Worse Kagoo Score

The Igenix IG2860 has only received a Kagoo Score of 73, whereas the Beko MOC20100 scored 75, the Magic Chef MCM1611ST scored 87, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C scored 83 and the Swan SM22030GRN scored 82.

14% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

The running costs of the Igenix IG2860 are $305 which is $38 more than the Beko MOC20100 over five years. Show assumptions.
