Russell Hobbs RHM2561BCG Review

Looks smart, works well, and offers very good value. The futuristic looks might not suit all kitchens, and the controls looks slightly "out of place" on the far right of the microwave - asides from that we have no complaints.

Our Russell Hobbs RHM2561BCG Combi Microwave Review

Russell Hobbs RHM2561BCG

This 25 litre combi microwave from Russell Hobbs offers 900w microwave output, as well as 1100w grill output and a huge overall 2500w oven output.

The controls are pretty simple to operate - and the display is clear - the overall styling is pretty modern, so if you have a traditional style kitchen, then this microwave oven may not be for you.

The RHM2561BCG stainless steel interior looks great and is very easy to clean - build quality is good - it feels solid and like it will handle regular use.

It both heated and cooked food well during our testing period - we had no issues whatsoever with the overall performance - food was heated and cooked evenly.  The grill worked as you'd expect, and left food browned, and the oven was a handy addition, which will probably result in you using your regular convection oven less frequently, thus saving you money in energy bills.

In fact, the only slight criticisms we have of this microwave are:

1. The fact that the controls look slightly out of place when compared to the rest of the microwave's design - they stand out slightly.  This wouldn't put us off buying this kitchen appliance though - it offers outstanding value.


2. The mirrored finish to the door will show fingerprints - and so will need regular cleaning in order to stay looking pristine.

Asides from that, it really offers great value.  For your information, the external dimensions of this silver microwave are 30.5cm by 51.3cm by 42.5cm.

Our Verdict for the Russell Hobbs RHM2561BCG

Overall Russell Hobbs have put together a very good value microwave - it works well, looks good and is very reasonably priced for a combi microwave.
