When choosing a unit, the wattage or power capability of the machine is one of the first areas you should evaluate. Most commercial manufacturers offer a variety of different wattage options and sizes for their microwaves, allowing you to purchase one that precisely fits the needs of your restaurant. Are you operating a medium sized restaurant or cafe? Then a medium-duty commercial microwave is likely best for you. One that offers between 1,200 and 2,000 watts of power will give you short enough cooking times to service your customers effectively. If you are operating a large-scale business, such as a fast food restaurant, then a machine with a higher power capacity is far more suitable. Heavy duty commercial microwaves that offer wattages beyond 2,000 will allow you the cooking speed you need to keep up with your high volume of customers.
Microwaves also have different control options. Dial units are controlled using a simple dial, while other high-tech programmable commercial microwaves feature easier to use controls like touch screens that can be programmed based on your business needs.
Sharp commercial microwaves feature several medium and heavy-duty units with variable wattage and size options. To make life easy in the kitchen, Amana commercial microwaves offer programmable one-touch cooking with adjustable power levels.
