LG is the most popular name in India for microwaves followed by Samsung and then Whirlpool as per my experience. But LG has done some exceptional research in bringing most advanced technologies in a Microwave.

5. Godrej GME 25GP1 MKM
Godrej microwave made it too on top 5 as this microwave i mentioned is one of the unique design you’ll not see normally in any Microwave in Indian market. This microwave comes with a special built-in-tray for making pizzas and kebabs. Although the feature also can be counted as downside, as it increase the height of microwave by few inches and might not fit into various Indian kitchens easily. Although design is not very appealing, yet it’s eye catching because of the bottom tray. Also, this microwave offer 5 power levels and also has 201 InstaCook menus.
