A microwave uses microwave radiation to cook food, while an OTG (Oven, Toaster, Grill) uses heating elements to cook food.

Microwaves cook food much faster than OTGs because of their high-powered heating technology.

Microwaves are better suited for heating, defrosting, and cooking simple dishes like soups and reheating leftovers. On the other hand, OTGs can bake, roast, grill, broil, and toast food, making them more versatile than microwaves.

Microwaves are typically smaller than OTGs and take up less space on a kitchen counter. OTGs are available at different sizes.

OTGs usually have larger cooking capacities than microwaves, making them better suited for cooking large meals or multiple dishes at once.

OTGs have more precise temperature control, allowing users to adjust the temperature according to the recipe, while microwaves usually have pre-set temperature options.

Food cooked in a microwave may not have the same texture as food cooked in an OTG, as microwaves cook food quickly and may result in uneven cooking or dryness.

Energy Efficiency: Microwaves are generally more energy-efficient than OTGs, as they cook food faster and use less energy overall.

Microwaves are typically less expensive than OTGs, making them a more budget-friendly option for those looking for a simple cooking solution.

Microwaves are easier to clean than OTGs, as they usually have a removable glass plate and a wipe-clean interior, while OTGs often require more thorough cleaning and maintenance.
