5 Reasons For for Choosing the Magic Chef MCM770W

Five More Power Levels

The Magic Chef MCM770W is a 10 power level microwave, whereas the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C only has five power levels and the Daewoo QT3R only has seven power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Whirlpool WMH31017HS. It is possible that it does not have any power levels.

'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.

Better Kagoo Score

The Magic Chef MCM770W has received a Kagoo Score of 90, however the Bosch HMT72M450B scored 82, the Daewoo QT3R scored 85, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C scored 81 and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS scored 83.

$30 Cheaper

The Magic Chef MCM770W costs $101.86 less than the Bosch HMT72M450B, costs $29.76 less than the Daewoo QT3R, costs $48.64 less than the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and costs $98 less than the Whirlpool WMH31017HS.

More Shops Are Selling it

One Month Newer

4 Reasons Against for Choosing the Magic Chef MCM770W

Smaller Interior Capacity

'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.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 17%

Over five years the Magic Chef MCM770W costs $267 to run which is $38 more than the Daewoo QT3R. Show assumptions.

Lower User Review Score

The Magic Chef MCM770W's average user rating is 93%, however the Daewoo QT3R's is 100% (based on 8 reviews).

6 Reasons For for Choosing the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C

Child Lock

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has a child lock, but the Bosch HMT72M450B, the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS do not 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.

Weight Sensor

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has a weight sensor, but the Bosch HMT72M450B, the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS do not. 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.

Seven More Auto Programs

The number of auto programs on the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C is eight, but the Bosch HMT72M450B only has one auto program. More ...

We do not know the number of auto programs on the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W or the Whirlpool WMH31017HS. 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%, however Bosch only has an average rating of 93.7%, Daewoo only has an average rating of 79.1%, Magic Chef only has an average rating of 93.6% and Whirlpool only has an average rating of 79.3%.

Has a Better Price

On average reviewers thought the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has a better price.

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 superb features.

11 Reasons Against for Choosing the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C

Smaller Interior Capacity

Russell Hobbs RHM2064C is only 20 capacity. That's 3L bigger than the Bosch HMT72M450B (17L), 6L bigger than the Daewoo QT3R (14L), 0.2L bigger than the Magic Chef MCM770W (19.8L) and 28L smaller than the Whirlpool WMH31017HS (48L). 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.

Five Less Power Levels

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C has five power levels (as does the Bosch HMT72M450B), however the Daewoo QT3R only has seven power levels and the Magic Chef MCM770W only has 10 power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Whirlpool WMH31017HS. It is possible that it does not have any power levels.

'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 does the the Bosch HMT72M450B), whereas the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS do. 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 81, but the Bosch HMT72M450B scored 82, the Daewoo QT3R scored 85, the Magic Chef MCM770W scored 90 and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS scored 83.

$49 More Expensive

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C is more expensive than the Daewoo QT3R by $19 and more expensive than the Magic Chef MCM770W by $49.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 3 shops sells the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C, however 10 retailers sell the Magic Chef MCM770W. More ...

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

The Russell Hobbs RHM2064C is older than the Daewoo QT3R by 14 months, older than the Magic Chef MCM770W by 20 months and older than the Whirlpool WMH31017HS by 19 months.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 33%

1 Reason For for Choosing the Bosch HMT72M450B

Easier to Use

On average reviewers thought the Bosch HMT72M450B was easier to use. Over 10 people thought that the Bosch HMT72M450 was very easy to use and five people thought that it also had good controls.

17 Reasons Against for Choosing the Bosch HMT72M450B

Smaller Interior Capacity

Bosch HMT72M450B is only 17 capacity. That's 3L bigger than the Daewoo QT3R (14L), 2.8L smaller than the Magic Chef MCM770W (19.8L), 3L smaller than the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C (20L) and 31L smaller than the Whirlpool WMH31017HS (48L). 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 Bosch HMT72M450B does not have a child lock (As does the the Daewoo QT3R), whereas the Magic Chef MCM770W, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS do. 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.

Five Less Power Levels

The Bosch HMT72M450B has five power levels (as does the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C), however the Daewoo QT3R only has seven power levels and the Magic Chef MCM770W only has 10 power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Whirlpool WMH31017HS. It is possible that it does not have any power levels.

'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 Reheat Function

The Bosch HMT72M450B does not have a reheat function, but the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS have this feature. 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.

Does Not Have a Grill

The Bosch HMT72M450B does not have a grill, but the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W, the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS do. 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.

Seven Less Auto Programs

The number of auto programs on the Bosch HMT72M450B is one, but the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C only has eight auto programs. More ...

We do not know the number of auto programs on the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W or the Whirlpool WMH31017HS. 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 does the the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C), whereas the Daewoo QT3R, the Magic Chef MCM770W and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS do. 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 82, but the Daewoo QT3R scored 85, the Magic Chef MCM770W scored 90 and the Whirlpool WMH31017HS scored 83.

$102 More Expensive

The Bosch HMT72M450B is more expensive than the Daewoo QT3R by $72, more expensive than the Magic Chef MCM770W by $102, more expensive than the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C by $53 and more expensive than the Whirlpool WMH31017HS by $4.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 2 shops sells the Bosch HMT72M450B, however 10 shops sell the Magic Chef MCM770W, 3 sellers sell the Russell Hobbs RHM2064C and 3 sellers sell the Whirlpool WMH31017HS. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the chances of this microwave remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
