What is the difference between electric ovens, microwave ovens, and light wave ovens

- Mar 23, 2020-

Electric ovens, microwave ovens, and lightwave ovens are popularly used in our daily life for baking food. The following are some general differences between them. 


electric ovens: mainly heated by resistance wire heating tubes, radiate directly to food through heat, and bake from outside to inside, and all processes are performed in a closed space, the heating method is From outside to inside. Because of its heating method, it can only be used to make food that needs to be baked, and the heating speed is not as good as that of a microwave oven. 


Microwave oven: It mainly uses the magnetron to generate microwaves with extremely high frequency, and then uses the microwave to promote the high-speed movement of water molecules in the food to rub against each other to generate heat. Because of its heating method, it can not heat metal utensils or sealed food and food with pots. At the same time, because of its special heating method, it has a very high heating speed than electric ovens and lightwave ovens. 


Lightwave ovens: It mainly uses the lightwave tube to generate high temperature after being energized, and uses high-temperature radiating cookware to indirectly achieve the purpose of heating food. The heating method can be directly baked from the outside to the inside, or the food can be heated indirectly after heating with water or oil. Because the heating method is blocked by the furnace surface, and most of them are indirectly heated by water or oil, the thermal efficiency is low and the heating speed is slow. However, it has an advantage in that it does not pick pots, and any pot can be used on a light-wave oven.
