Microwaves are a kitchen staple, but you don’t have to buy them very often. A good microwave should last you for years to come. If you are in the market for a new microwave, you might be feeling overwhelmed by all the choices. We can help! Before you buy, you should have an idea what type (countertop versus above range), size, and power works best for your particular needs. From there, it’s a question of features and reviews.
There probably isn’t a “perfect” microwave out there. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone gush about or tell me how much they love their microwave, have you? Regardless, you can still find the best one for your needs and there are definitely models that have better specs and functions than others.
With all that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of the best microwaves, including countertop and over the range. We’ll also cover some of the things you’ll want to look for before you shop.

With my own needs in mind, and with yours as well, I reviewed the best slow cookers out there to compile this list. I’ve got my pick for best overall, plus some of the best in manual and digital models. I’ll also give you my picks for some specific categories (instant pot, small sized, and budget).
