 Making delicious food is an art which requires effort and patience to bring out the desired result. Majority of the people who like to cook for others have started from baking because baking allows you to prepare several sweet or savoury dishes safely.

But what is an OTG Oven? An Oven, Toaster, Grill (OTG) is essentially a smaller version of a traditional oven. It uses heated coils to cook meals and requires much less setting up. The thermostat present in the OTGs helps in controlling the temperature.

An OTG forms the crucks of any kitchen if you still are a fan of the old style baking. It is for everyone who wishes to put in effort and time to make a lip-smacking dish. If you find a microwave as an appliance, then OTG would actually cook your food slowly so that the dish gets cooked thoroughly and you get the perfect flavor. 

Difference Between OTG And Microwave Oven

While microwaves have become a common household item, OTGs are comparatively less used. We use OTGs for many purposes, like baking, grilling, and toasting. There are so many scrumptious baked dishes out there that I’m sure everyone would love to try out with an OTG. Here we explain the difference between a Microwave Oven and an OTG Oven:

Cooking Style

A major difference between OTG and microwave is the cooking style.

  1. An OTG uses a higher range of heat that can go up to 250 degrees Celsius depending on the heating capacity. A microwave oven heats fast and has a lower temperature range that uses the grill and convection features to bake and cook.
  2. The basic functionality of a microwave involves heating food with the use of electromagnetic radiation. The thermal energy produced in the process helps in heating the food.
  3. OTG has a thermostat with heating coils that regulate the temperature and heat, and cooks food in the slow heating process similar to traditional electric ovens. It also distributes heat and cooks the food more evenly than microwaves.


Both an OTG and microwave prices can vary depending on the quality, brand, capacity and features that it offers.

  1. A Microwave serves as a more versatile kitchen appliance and is, therefore, more expensive than an OTG.
  2. A good OTG of reliable brands with greater capacity and more heating capability can also be expensive but will be a durable kitchen appliance you would want to have for the long term.


  1. Oven capacity is one of the main differentiators between microwaves and OTGs. Oven capacity is the amount of food that an appliance can handle at a time.
  2. The major benefit of OTGs over microwaves is that they are available in bigger capacities. Microwave ovens come between 20-30 Litres while OTG can be of bigger capacities as well – 45 to 80 Litres.

How to Clean An OTG

Like most kitchen appliances, consider space issues when you plan to buy OTG and where you would plan to install it. An OTG is a significant addition to have as your kitchen appliances. Especially if you love baking and want to try various baking dishes extensively, an OTG would serve your purpose the best.

Here are several steps on how to clean an OTG Oven:

  1. The OTG should be cool and unconnected to a power outlet. This is a mandatory step and strictly adheres to it.
  2. Second essential step is to remove all the parts, including racks, trays etc. Keep all the parts submerged in hot water which has soap mixed. This has to be done for around half an hour and then clean them
  3. In this step, we will see how to clean the interiors of OTG. For this, make a mixture of vinegar and hot water. Clean the interiors by taking the tissue/ soft cloth soaked from the mixture. Now, wipe the inside surface by cleaning it with soft cloth soaked in cold water with lime juice added to it.
  4. There may be some hard stains still left on the rack/ tray, etc. To remove them as well, prepare a paste which will have 1 Tbsp of baking soda and 1.5 Tbsp of water. This paste is to be applied on the spots, scrub it with a cleaning pad. It will give a significant result which surely would amaze you.
  5. We can clean the exterior body of the OTG with hot water with detergent added in it.
  6. Dry components have to be put back in their respective places and you are good to bake in your sparkly and clean oven.

Important Features for Buying OTG

Capacity – The first and foremost point to consider before buying an OTG is the capacity. The capacity of the oven refers to the “actual” size of the oven capacity, where you place the container to grill, bake or heat. A large-sized oven can hold large containers but also consumes more energy.

Family Size–As per the size of the family, you cook small or large amounts of food. Following are some of the recommended oven capacities (in liters) for different family sizes.

            2 members–Less than 19 Liters

           4 members–20 to 29 Liters

           6 members–More than 30 Liters

  • Usage–The oven capacity also depends on how you wish to use the oven. If you want to use the OTG for cooking, you will obviously require a higher capacity. And if you wish to use it for tasks like defrosting or reheating food, a smaller oven can also fit your requirement.
  • Cookware–Before buying one, please ensure that the dishes (like pan and other cookware) that you normally use would fit comfortably inside the OTG so that you don’t incur extra cost of buying new cookware.

 Space & Location – Of course, you have chosen an electrical OTG to be a part of your culinary journey, but before buying one, consider the space you can devote to this appliance. OTGs are big and require a little extra space. Make sure that you measure the size of the oven against the location where you wish to have it installed.

Price – Of course, everything comes with a price tag. Keeping your requirements in mind, choose an OTG that comes in your budget. The higher the capacity, the more will be the cost. And the same applies to features as well. So, you must check on all the points before selecting an oven for your kitchen.

Warranty–While purchasing an OTG, you must consider the warranty that the particular brand is offering. On a safer side, it is always good to have a product with certainty to avoid unnecessary maintenance costs.
