I have this oven. Its is a fantastic microwave and convection combo oven with inverter drive. Great cooking results and with a simple interface. I use this in our campervan because it is very compact for the size of the turntable. In fact it is smaller outside dimensions than similar ones that have much smaller turntables. This thing gets a real workout in our van, being carted around all the time and run off a 12V inverter sometimes too. Have had it around 6 months. Paid a bit more than this. Have just bought another one for home now.

I'm not sure if there are any better eBay codes. I used PRINCE10 for 10% off. Even without the coupon this is the cheapest I've ever seen it.

EDIT: I have NFI why they are calling it a "Flatbed". It has a glass turntable like a normal microwave. I have a flatbed inverter microwave I'm replacing with this beast. Flatbed microwaves are rubbish. I think they might have meant to put "inverter" instead of "flatbed".

    Hey, I'm currently looking at microwaves having not bought one previously - most seem to be much cheaper then this. What sets this one apart (I guess what justifies the price)?

      It can be used as an oven and/or grill as well a microwave. This class of oven is called a Convection Microwave, or Combi Mirowave. They are quite rare with inverter tech at this price. Yes they are a lot more expensive than just a straight microwave. So you can cook pizzas properly and I can vouch that this one does a mean frozen pie.

        Thanks for the education!

      •  

        so, how do you do your frozen pies?

        Can you microwave it than turn on the oven/grill to make fast frozen pies? How about Frozen chips?

          It can do it concurrently. So microwave and convection oven or grill at the same time. For a fozen pie I do 6 minutes on 600W micro plus convection.

          Havent tried chips, but they would work too. Its basically the same as a fan oven, but you can microwave at the same time so its a lot faster.

        I put a pie I couldn't finish in there. Didn't freeze.

    +1 on convection microwave. It means you don’t need to crank up the big oven for small things, e.g. frozen pizzas, pies, etc. You don’t end up with soggy pastry.

      If you have an decent oven and microwave already, the cost of a new unit would outweigh the slightly lower electricity unless the used it a lot. And I mean a lot.

      •  

        Yes, but only if you have an existing working microwave. The other advantage is it heats up quickly. Time vs cost.

    How do you run it off a 12V inverter? Its a 1000W microwave, so would pull too much, wouldn't it?

    • +1 vote

      Depends on the inverter and what you are powering it from on the 12V side.
      I've got a 5000W inverter. I have a 160Ah 12V LiFePO4 bank that can deliver 200A continuous. I can also run it off the 150A alternator if I don't want to deplete the battery. It barely breaks a sweat powering the microwave. It struggles a bit when I try to run the 1400W Nespresso machine and the microwave and the toaster at the same time.
