Russell Hobbs RHFM2001B Flatbed Microwave Review

The price of the Russell Hobbs RHFM2001B flatbed microwave may suggest this is a budget option but that’s where it stops; everything else about this microwave is premium only. It also features on our list for the best budget solo microwave as our top flatbed option.

There are some microwaves that heat, cook and defrost their way through life so brilliantly you’d think they were made for it right from the start (oh, hold on a minute). The Russell Hobbs RHF2001B flatbed solo microwave is one of those microwaves.

As well as doing its job perfectly, it also looks amazing doing it and offers excellent value for money. A combination that is hard to beat.

Let’s start with just how gorgeous this microwave looks. If there are more eye-catching appliances in your kitchen than the Russell Hobbs RHF2001B, then you must have hard time remembering what you went into the kitchen to do.

The Russell Hobbs RHF2001B has a smooth and contemporary design enhanced by its black mirror finish. It also has two control dials in lovely silver which standout yet complement the overall design of the front.

As if the looks were not enough, the Russell Hobbs RHF2001B does an excellent job of cooking, reheating and defrosting. At 700W it cooks food very quickly and also quite importantly, evenly. This is helped by the flatbed design (no turntable) and its internal diamond cavity structure which enhances the reflecting of the microwaves and means the power is distributed more evenly. This leaves you with no more annoying cold spots.

In fact the cooking prowess of the Russell Hobbs RHF2001B is one of things that you’ll notice most frequently mentioned by users.

The flatbed design provides several advantages to the Russell Hobbs RHF2001B.

One of the best things is the fact you can get larger and more awkward shaped dishes into the microwave than you could with the same capacity turntable design.

The flat surface also makes it a lot easier to clean spills and splatters inside the microwave. No more awkward moments trying to handle and clean the glass turntable.

If you want a smaller than average microwave that can still fit a standard size dinner plate then the Russell Hobbs RHF2001B fits the bill. Though it has a nice compact footprint, you can still easily fit standard dinner plates through the door.

Something that you see mentioned frequently and that you’ll quickly notice, is how easy it is to use the Russell Hobbs RHF2001B microwave. With the two dials you can select pretty much all the functions that you’ll need to get the most out this excellent microwave.

With a 19litre capacity the Russell Hobbs RHFM2001B would be perfectly suited to smaller households as well as singles and couples.

To give you a wider range of choice this model is available in silver (Russell Hobbs RHFM2001S).
