What’s the most common color for microwaves these days? As you might expect, stainless steel microwaves are the most popular and most common with white microwaves and black microwaves not far behind. But, you’re not looking for necessarily popular or common or a cold stainless steel microwave. You want one of those red microwave ovens because they just look right! A warm, red microwave shows off your personal style and sets you apart from the crowd.
Although there aren’t a lot of red microwave ovens available, the ones that are available look really nice and probably have just the style and flair you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a countertop microwave oven in red, they are definitely available.
We looked for the best red microwave ovens we could find and were surprised to find a number of good looking functional countertop microwaves with nice features and reasonable prices.
Although you won’t find top-of-the-line or larger size models in red, the three small microwaves we selected come with a nice set of features and plenty of room for dorm room or apartment living. A small microwave or compact microwave has the advantage of taking up less valuable counter space and will accommodate most like cooking duties. Plus, if you already have other red kitchen appliances, a red microwave will fit in nicely.
While you’re not necessarily looking for cheap microwaves, it doesn’t hurt that a small red microwave oven can also be a great value.
A big concern was what users think of their red, compact microwaves and so we were forced to leave some microwaves off our list because of poor feedback on functionality, quality, reliability, and/or feature set. We didn’t want to put a red countertop microwave on our list just because it was red and have you discover problems down the road.
So one thing you can count on is that the red countertop microwave ovens on our list are from quality manufacturers, they are not discontinued models as of the date of this article, and most customers have said that they love them.
We wish we could have found some larger sizes in red, but it seems that the market for red microwaves is mostly in the apartment and dorm room market. So most come in sizes between 0.7 and 1.0 cu. ft. With the smaller sizes also comes less power so the three on our list range between 700 and 900 watts.
The models on our list are not feature-laden, but should provide you with the most commonly requested features.
Styling-wise, two of the models on our list are actually retro-styled while the other is more contemporary.
Only you can decide what looks good to you, so take a look at our list and see if one of these red microwave ovens is the perfect model for you!
