Convection microwaves combine the convenience of microwave cooking with the efficiency of an oven. The KitchenAid Pro Line Series KHMC1857XSP, which costs $746.10, and the Panasonic NN-CD989S, which is $545.99, are two popular convection microwaves on the market. Let’s compare some of their features.
Price-wise, the Panasonic model is more wallet-friendly. It has a 1.5 cubic foot capacity, however, which is less than the 1.8 cubic feet of the KitchenAid microwave. If space is important feature to you, then the KitchenAid model has a slight edge.
The KitchenAid model is an over-the-range microwave with a hidden ventilation hood, which is definitely a bonus when it comes to keeping the microwave from becoming too hot. The Pansonic model works with inverter technology to distribute heat evenly without burning. It can either sit on the countertop or be installed with a trim kit.
Ultimately, the extra cost may be the deciding factor between these two models. The KitchenAid model is slightly larger, but it’s also quite costlier than the Panasonic NN-CD989S.
