Dangerous Product

We have just reported this product as it set on fire whilst switched off and the door closed. The fire was stopped by unplugging the microwave.I wouldn't purchase a microwave like this again. It could of burnt our house down.Prior to it setting on fire, we found it quite tacky. My husband referred to it as a toy microwave as it made an awful 'ping' sound when it had finished. The time dial also didn't work accurately.

Donot use foil or dishes with silver or gold edges. Use microwave covers to prevent spillage and microwavable dishes.

My Kitchen treasure, Red Microwave is fabulous!
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

After a long research, I have struck upon this fabulous, Red Microwave from Russel Hobbs which is quick, elegant and less power consuming. I had a white 800W one before and it took more time to get the same result as this one. Thanks a ton, to the Argos Team, who are constantly, engineering their Product List for the best choice available. Aroop.

I was looking for this colour microwave since a long time but sometimes it wasn’t proper colour, price was too high or I didn’t like the design! Happy with this microwave as it is perfect to my needs and works well. Very easy to use with variable power limits.

Lovely design and colour (red)
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

This is a really good looking microwave. The only downside is that the controls are tricky to understand when setting it up. The display is a little confusing, the control buttons eg 'Start' 'Pause' etc are displayed above the button, when you expect it to be underneath, so that takes a bit of getting used to. Good value for the money though

3. Add the flour and beat again until smooth.

4. Stir in most of the marshmallows, raisins and biscuits and sit the remaining on top.

1 tbsp olive oil

Sea salt

3. Finally, wash and trim the asparagus, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes, then serve with the salmon and potatoes.

Hints and Tips

About your Russell Hobbs microwave

Microwave ovens do not generate any heat themselves but instead cause water molecules in food to vibrate. This vibration produces heat that cooks the food. This is why your food will come out of the microwave piping hot, when your utensils inside the microwave stay much cooler.

Microwaves cannot go through metal, so the inside of the appliance is lined with metal. The door is lined with a fine metal mesh which stops microwaves getting through.


Avoid using scouring pads, steel wool or other abrasives. Warm soapy water and a sponge should get rid of all moisture and food spillages.

How to get the best cooking results


With five microwave power levels to choose from, you can ensure all your food is cooked or re-heated to the optimum temperature.


This microwave has automatic defrost settings, all you have to do is input the weight of the food and the microwave selects the ideal defrost time.

Auto Cook Menus

The RHMM701 also features pre-programmed auto cook menus such as pizza, fish and popcorn, allowing you to cook all your favourite food at the push of a button.

Avoiding Mishaps

To avoid any microwave mishaps it is recommended to take extra care with the following:

Low moisture foods (eg. cereals, bagels, dried pasta, pulses and chocolate)

- These must be cooked on a low power level for a very short length of time, or preferably not at all.

High sugar content foods (eg. jams, syrups)

- These foods can become easily ‘super-heated’ when cooked in a microwave oven.

Foods containing alcohol

- Foods with an alcohol content must not be cooked in a microwave as they could ignite.

Foods with a membrane or outer skin (eg. fruits, sausages, potatoes)

- Food with a sealed or none porous skin must be pierced to allow pressure and steam to escape
