Forget everything you think you know about microwaves, because LG South Africa has set the bar with the release of the new SolarDOM, an eco-friendly lightwave oven. The new and improved upgrade in the SolarDOM series is not only eye-catching and modern, but it promises to cook food that is tastier, healthier and faster.

Gone are the days when microwaves were purely heat-and-eat devices and no one was concerned about their look. Now, they’re as much about practicality as they are about fitting in with the kitchen décor. When it comes to style and sophistication, the SolarDOM is the home appliance that adds pizazz to any kitchen. From its simple, modern functional menu display to its reflective pull-down door, it is a timeless design that will inspire future convection inventions.

The SolarDOM will simplify cooking and save you time and money. Easy and convenient, the SolarDOM allows you to make wholesome meals, such as a roast chicken with vegetables, in just 25 minutes depending on weight. Now food can be cooked four times faster than a conventional oven and with 50% reduced energy consumption.

As anyone who has ever prepared a gourmet meal knows, the least favourite part of the process is cleaning up. LG recognised this pain point and devised a solution. First, the SolarDOM’s hidden safety heater allows for easy cleaning. Second, the lightwave oven has been coated with Easy Clean Coating, a material that ensures it is 10 times easier to clean without the need for expensive cleaning products. And finally, the round cavity design ensures you can wipe away the toughest food stains with simply water and one swipe.

Lest we forget, the most important feature of the SolarDOM is its cooking. Special features, such as the Charcoal Heater, ensure food is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, with high power density and fast responding time. It uses powerful halogen lights to cook the outside of food, much like conventional radiant heat, but also penetrates the surface so the inside is cooked at the same time. This unique form of cooking is uncommonly fast, but keeps food moist, tender and bursting with flavour.

Eco-friendly. Stylish. Easy to clean. Healthy and tasty food. Do you need any other reason to put a SolarDOM in your kitchen?
