Well, first of all, I have to confess that cooking is already fun for me! I love testing out new recipes, trying new and unusual ingredients, making sauces and soups and all the things. Chopping vegetables is like meditation to me.

We just finished installing a new gas range (FINALLY switched from electric after living here 4 years). Now I’ve learned of this new 3-in-1 microwave combination by Breville which is available at Best Buy and it’s going right on my wish list!  This microwave lets you air fry (think crunchy fries, Brussel sprouts, fish – at up to 75% less fat), bake or roast (whole chickens, lasagna, chocolate brownies) or simply just microwave with even heat distribution. Now you can do just about all of your cooking in a microwave if you want to. (If you’re a caregiver, this would be perfect for a  parent or loved one’s private quarters. It would be much safer and more convenient than an oven/range.)

The Breville Combi Wave has a variety of cooking programs to fit your needs: defrost, reheat, fish, bacon, popcorn, pizza, rice, chicken, meat, cake and butter/chocolate.

There are 3 different pre-sets that you can choose:  Smart Cook, Smart Reheat & Smart Defrost, each of which is very intuitive. The convection technology is great because it uses a fan to circulate heat during the cooking process, effectively minimizing the number of hot spots and cold spots. It also has a PowerGrill – a Grilling element that cooks crispy food, (including pizza!) by using 1100W of grill power.


And if you’re like me, in a rush to get somewhere after dinner, Divaz practice, for instance, no worries! The “Fast Combi” function of the Combi Wave 2-in-1 is designed to cook your favorite dishes faster by using Microwave, Convection Oven and Grilling to achieve the desired temperature and perfect results in less time.

Powered by the Element iQ system, smart algorithms steer power to where and when it’s needed to create the ideal cooking environment.

The Power Smoothing™ Inverter gives you precise & even heat distribution, reheating & cooking dishes evenly for more delicious results.

I also like that The Combi has an 80% quieter soft-close door – so no more microwave slams to wake someone up when I’m reheating my coffee for the 5th time! It’s also 50% quieter while in operation.

It’s a good size too – a 1.1 cubic feet interior. And it comes in a stainless steel casing which is more apt to match your current appliances (but not the 1980s gold electric oven which we just ditched!).

If you are thinking about trying the Breville Combi Wave 3-in-1 Microwave head on over to Best Buy to check it out for yourself! Let me know what you think!  When was the last time you purchased a new microwave?
