Can anyone recommend a microwave that works well as a normal oven as well?

We have had a couple of makes - in experience SHARP is probably our best - but it may depend on your budget. Ours is 7 or 8 years old now so probably not made. It does a good job as a 2nd small oven as we have one BIG one. Bets to check the top temp it can get to ours does 250 so good for pizza and the like - also cos its small it heats up quickly.

Combi cooks things quicker (did roast oven in about 50 mins last night). Grill is a bit titchy and only covers a small area so you need to move stuff around. Gives you much more flexibility - just be careful if you microwave something in plastic after using a hot oven .

Thanks and bump- does anyone have a microwave that cooks chips well? Is it possible to cook pastry in a micro/oven?
