With most consumer microwaves around 30L, the LG NeoChef 56L is a giant of a microwave. Perfect for big families.

What more it is not that expensive – at $539 (shop around) you get a 1200W Smart Inverter that cooks 33% faster than a typical 1000W.

It has an Anti-Bacterial EasyClean coating claiming to eliminate 99.99% of harmful bacteria – that is if the microwaves don’t zap them first.

It has also addresses the age-old issue of lack of light to see the cooking cavity – its now 3x brighter than its other microwaves.

GadgetGuy’s take – LG NeoChef 56L – bigger is better

It is not just the capacity but the 1200W that makes this a great. Its the LG efficient smart inverter and all the tech that makes this a compelling device.

If you don’t have the kitchen space, LG has a 42L 1200W NeoChef oven in black, stainless and white finishes.
