Founded over 100 years ago, Faberware is a brand that produces kitchen-related appliances that are known to be unique, of high quality, and durable. The Farberware FMO10AHDBKC countertop microwave, for example, is one of the best microwaves as it stands out with its air fryer, grill, microwave, and low-temperature cooking functions, as well as its sleek black stainless steel color. The countertop microwave oven offers 1.0 cubic feet of interior capacity, and while this may be a bit small for it to be considered the best convection microwave oven, we still think it would make a great purchase for anyone who might be living alone or with their significant other.

Why We Like It – Farberware Black FMO10AHDBKC

The Farberware Black FMO10AHDBKC microwave is one of the most feature-packed microwaves that you might ever come across. The microwave offers up to 4 different cooking functions, 11 auto cook functions, 1000 Watts of power output, and up to 10 power control levels for you to choose from.

  • Air fry technology
  • Grilling element
  • Combination cooking
  • Slightly expensive

Power & Performance

With 1000 Watts of power, like the GE JNM3163RJSS, the Farberware black is relatively powerful, and this kind of power is needed for it to be able to perform its four different cooking functions. The microwave also features 11 different cooking presets, and this is important because you’ll be able to decide exactly how you want your food to come out. For another unit with similar power, you’ll want to try the Dacor microwave. The 1.0 cu ft countertop microwave is also only slightly smaller than the Samsung MC12J8035CT microwave, but the two actually share both the grilling function and convection cooking technology in common.


The Farberware black stainless steel microwave is generally of high build quality, and with a control panel that consists of buttons just like the Cuisinart CMW-200. And, since it doesn’t have touch keys, there’s a less likely chance that they will get desensitized with continued use. Its control panel also has a very simple layout, but it is different from the Frigidaire built-in microwave oven in that it’s got a grab handle instead of a push-to-release button.

Ease of Use

Despite the many useful features that the Farberware microwave comes packed with, it’s still pretty easy to navigate. Its healthy air fry grill functions are pretty easy to operationalize, and with a combination cooking option, you’ll also be able to use both its grill & convection features to keep your food juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. The Sharp SMD2470AS comes with a child lock feature that prevents children from operating it when there’s nothing inside, if you have children or you always entertain people with children, this is a microwave you should consider.

Added Features & Versatility

One particular feature that you won’t find in a lot of modern microwaves is the Farberware microwave’s healthy air fry cooking technology. This method of cooking is a very healthy option to consider especially because it cuts down on the fat that you would consume compared to if you would fry your food by submerging it in oil. Its unique air fry technology offers up to 9 different fry options to consider, and with its convection option also available for consideration, you’ll always have an evenly cooked meal with no hotspots.


Another feature that’s present on this Farberware classic microwave but missing on the Toshiba EC042A5C-SS Microwave is the low-temperature control option. This option provides five levels of cooking that you can use to slow cook, dehydrate or even keep your food warm after it’s done cooking inside the microwave. Despite that, there are some similarities between the two microwaves, as you’ll be able to mute the beeping sound on both, and also keep your energy costs down by switching to Eco mode.

Farberware Black FMO10AHDBKC Wrap Up

Despite its $445 price tag, the stainless steel Farberware grill convection microwave is well equipped to handle a wide range of cooking functions, and will also help you save up a great deal of your money since you’ll get to avoid buying a separate air fryer for example.
