Commercial Microwave Buying Considerations
Before purchasing your new commercial microwave, first consider what you'll be cooking and how much of it. Determining which class of microwave (light, medium or heavy duty) is key to sizing a microwave appropriate to your business. Light duty microwaves typically range 900 – 1100 watts and are best used for microwaving less than 50 items per day. Medium and heavy duty microwaves on the other hand are capable of cooking anywhere from 150 to 200+ items each day. Keep in mind that higher wattage microwaves may also require a 200v outlet—if you only have access to a standard 140v outlet you could be faced with a real conundrum.

The Difference Between Spin Dial and Push Button Microwaves
There's no right or wrong answer when it comes to choosing between a spin dial or push button style of microwave, and sharp microwaves come with either a spin dial or push button option. Dial microwaves tend to be more cost effective and feature marked timing increments around the knob. Push button microwaves on the other hand feature programmable options that enable you to set precise cooking times and power levels for specific foods. These features are great for practically foolproof cooking, no matter who is in charge.
