For serious cooks, the most appropriate microwave placement is in close proximity to the other cooking appliances. To create your own “cooking centre”, ensure the hob, oven and microwave are within arm’s reach of each other. In this position, the Grundig GMI 1030 X Microwave’s many cooking features can also be taken advantage of. With 5 individual power levels, you can ensure that all foods are cooked perfectly. The Grundig’s 9 automatic cooking programs are also a major advantage for the home chef.

Busy families with school-age children benefit from centralised microwave placement. The kitchen island, for example, is an ideal space for a microwave. Its low level provides easy access for older children who are ready to make their own after-school snacks like whole-wheat pita pizzas, or pop popcorn for a Sunday night movie with their siblings. However, with its secure child locks, the Grundig GMI 1030 X Microwave ensures that the youngest ones in the family won’t be able to operate it without adult supervision. Plus, the stainless steel is fingerprint-free!
