There are a few major things you need to know before you buy a microwave oven. 

Size of Kitchen

Models of this multipurpose appliance range in size from 0.5 cubic feet to 1.5 cubic feet. However, you should first think about how much space you have in your kitchen area and what you'll be playing in it. Before buying this appliance, you must consider these two crucial things.

Power Capacity

The higher the wattage, the more powerful your microwave will be. A mid or full-size microwave is required if you want to do more than just cooking or baking. However, preparing a full meal will definitely need a larger model with large power. Full-size ovens have 1000-1600 watts of power, while mid-size ovens have 800-1000 watts of power. If you live with friends and only need to prepare food for 1-2 people, a less powerful microwave will be sufficient.

The ideal microwave capacity is determined by the size and needs of your family.
