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

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Daewoo QT3R

A Lot Smaller Interior Capacity

The Daewoo QT3R has an interior capacity of 14L, however the Bosch HMT72M450B is a 17L capacity microwave (3L bigger), the Magic Chef MCM770W is a 19.8L capacity microwave (5.8L bigger) and the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030ON are both 20L capacity microwaves (6L bigger). 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.

Does Not Have a Child Lock

The Daewoo QT3R does not have a child lock (As does the the Bosch HMT72M450B), but the Magic Chef MCM770W, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030ON have this feature. 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.

Only Seven Power Levels

The Daewoo QT3R is a seven power level microwave, whereas the Magic Chef MCM770W only has 10 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

More Expensive by $28

The Daewoo QT3R is six months older than the Magic Chef MCM770W.

Worse Brand

Daewoo microwaves have an average rating of only 80.7%, whereas Bosch has an average rating of 93.5%, Magic Chef has an average rating of 92.5%, Russell Hobbs has an average rating of 95% and Swan has an average rating of 82.9%.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C

24% Bigger Interior Capacity

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has an interior capacity of 20L (as does the Swan SM22030ON), however the Bosch HMT72M450B is only a 17L capacity microwave (3L smaller), the Daewoo QT3R is only a 14L capacity microwave (6L smaller) and the Magic Chef MCM770W is only a 19.8L capacity microwave (0.2L 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 Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has a child lock, and so does the Swan SM22030ON, however the Bosch HMT72M450B, the Daewoo QT3R and the Magic Chef MCM770W 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.

Weight Sensor

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has a weight sensor, however the Bosch HMT72M450B, the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W and the Swan SM22030ON do not have this feature. More ...

'Weight Sensor' denotes whether the microwave has the ability to detect how much the food placed inside it weighs.

Weight sensors are mainly used with the auto-cooking programs: they allow the microwave to detect how much the food weighs, in order to properly calculate cooking times.

Eight Auto Programs

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has eight auto programs, however the Swan SM22030ON only has two auto programs. More ...

We do not know the number of auto programs on the Daewoo QT3R or the Magic Chef MCM770W. It is possible that they do not have any auto programs.

'Auto Program' denotes the number of automatic programs the microwave comes with. These are standardized cooking modes for popular dishes (such as baked potatoes, chilled quiche, etc). The weight is input, and the microwave takes care of the rest - calculating power and time to achieve the tastiest possible result.

More auto programs means that the microwave can handle more types of dishes, meaning it is more versatile and, by extension, helpful.

Better Brand

Russell Hobbs microwaves have an average rating of 95%, whereas Bosch only has an average rating of 93.5%, Daewoo only has an average rating of 80.7%, Magic Chef only has an average rating of 92.5% and Swan only has an average rating of 82.9%.

Better Nice Technical Features

Comparing the product reviews on average people thought the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C was better nice technical features. More than 100 people thought that it had outstanding features.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C

Only Five Power Levels

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C is a five power level microwave, and so does the Bosch HMT72M450B, whereas the Daewoo QT3R only has seven power levels and the Magic Chef MCM770W only has 10 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 Convection Cooking

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C does not have a convection cooking (As do the the Bosch HMT72M450B and the Swan SM22030ON), but the Daewoo QT3R and the Magic Chef MCM770W have this feature. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has received a Kagoo Score of 84, however the Daewoo QT3R scored 85 and the Magic Chef MCM770W scored 90.

Less Retailers

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C is only stocked by 4 shops, whereas the Magic Chef MCM770W is stocked by 10 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this microwave remaining in stock.
Older by Over One Year

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C is 14 months older than the Daewoo QT3R and 20 months older than the Magic Chef MCM770W.

$76 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Over five years the running costs of the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C are $305 which is $76 more than the Daewoo QT3R and $38 more than the Magic Chef MCM770W. Show assumptions.

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C's average user score is 89%, however the Daewoo QT3R's is 100% (based on 8 reviews) and the Magic Chef MCM770W's is 93% (based on 3 reviews).

1 Reason For for Choosing the Bosch HMT72M450B

Grill

The Bosch HMT72M450B has a grill, and so does the Swan SM22030ON, whereas the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W and the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C do not. More ...

'Grill' denotes whether the microwave has a grill function on not.

A grill allows for high-power cooking of everything from sausages to cheese toasties - it's the best thing for getting a nice crisp topping on pies and bakes as well.

18 Reasons Against for Choosing the Bosch HMT72M450B

15% Smaller Interior Capacity

The Bosch HMT72M450B has an interior capacity of 17L, however the Daewoo QT3R is a 14L capacity microwave (3L smaller), the Magic Chef MCM770W is a 19.8L capacity microwave (2.8L bigger) and the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030ON are both 20L capacity microwaves (3L bigger). 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 Bosch HMT72M450B does not have a defrost function, whereas the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030ON have this feature. 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!

Does Not Have a Reheat Function

The Bosch HMT72M450B does not have a reheat function, however the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030ON do. More ...

'Reheat Function' indicates whether the microwave has a low power mode, aimed to heat up pre-cooked food without cooking it further.

A reheat function is extremely helpful for making leftovers taste the best they can, rather that having to eat them cold.

Only Two Auto Programs

The Bosch HMT72M450B has two auto programs, and so does the Swan SM22030ON, however the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C only has eight auto programs. More ...

We do not know the number of auto programs on the Daewoo QT3R or the Magic Chef MCM770W. It is possible that they do not have any auto programs.

'Auto Program' denotes the number of automatic programs the microwave comes with. These are standardized cooking modes for popular dishes (such as baked potatoes, chilled quiche, etc). The weight is input, and the microwave takes care of the rest - calculating power and time to achieve the tastiest possible result.

More auto programs means that the microwave can handle more types of dishes, meaning it is more versatile and, by extension, helpful.

Does Not Have a Convection Cooking

The Bosch HMT72M450B does not have a convection cooking (As do the the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Swan SM22030ON), but the Daewoo QT3R and the Magic Chef MCM770W have this feature. 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Bosch HMT72M450B has received a Kagoo Score of 83, however the Daewoo QT3R scored 85, the Magic Chef MCM770W scored 90 and the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C scored 84.

More Expensive by $95

The Bosch HMT72M450B is $67 more expensive than the Daewoo QT3R, $95 more expensive than the Magic Chef MCM770W, $51 more expensive than the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and $36 more expensive than the Swan SM22030ON.

Less Retailers

The Bosch HMT72M450B is only stocked by 3 retailers, whereas the Magic Chef MCM770W is stocked by 10 shops and the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C is stocked by 4 retailers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this microwave remaining in stock.
Older by Over Seven Years

The Bosch HMT72M450B is seven years older than the Daewoo QT3R, eight years older than the Magic Chef MCM770W, six years older than the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and five years older than the Swan SM22030ON.
