Your microwave does a lot for you, from baking to grilling to re-heating the food. However, to ensure it works smoothly for a long duration, due care and maintenance are required.

While you may clean the tray or the metallic interior of the oven regularly, it is the exterior that often gets neglected. Dirt and dust can settle on the frame if not cleaned properly. And, if your oven is kept in the kitchen, tough-to-remove oil stains can spoil your appliance too.     

A microwave cover is an easy solution to protect your oven and keep it clean. You don’t have to worry about oil stains or someone accidentally splashing water on the appliance (which may lead to malfunctioning). And if you have kids at home who love scratching surfaces, the cover will ensure your appliance stays safe and scratch-free.

Covers to choose from

Polyester is a popular choice when it comes to microwave covers. Easy to clean, easy on the pocket and durable, polyester covers are also waterproof. Covers made of cotton that are easy to wash are another option.

Some covers come with pockets on either side, offering your storage space to keep small items. Besides keeping your oven clean, an attractive cover adds to the aesthetics of your kitchen or any room where the appliance is kept.

Look for one that is large enough to cover the length and breadth of your microwave oven. Go for a cover that can be easily folded and stored in your kitchen cabinet when not in use.

Pro-tip: When using the microwave for baking or grilling, remove the cover. Once you are done, place it over the appliance after a few minutes.
