Staged Cooking  Cannot be be programmed with multiple power levels and cooking durations. Without this convenient feature you have to be there to monitor and change the cooking process for more complicated dishes with varying requirements.
Sensor Cooking  Uses sensors to monitor humidity levels and automatically determines the appropriate power and time required to cook, reheat, or defrost selected foods.
Even Cooking  Cooks dishes evenly using special inverter or similar technology. The consistent delivery of microwaves allows the dish to uniformly cook without the surface or edges overcooking. No more burnt edges or underdone middles.
Keep Warm  Dishes can be automatically kept warm after they are done cooking. A preprogrammed setting employs low-power microwaves or sometimes uses a heat lamp to keep foods warm.
Non-Stick Interior  Does not have a special non-stick interior that makes clean-up easier. Splattered foods or drinks take a little more effort to wipe off, especially if you let them dry and harden for a period of time.
