Its alright
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Good combi oven. Only thing that bothered me is there is no circulation while using the oven so it more acts like grill, so for example you would have to turn over your pizza if you want both sides cooked. (so i just avoided pizzas)

Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Microwave is overheating on the outside and not warming food on the inside. Completely has got that wrong! I can't even return it through amazon it seems, I have to go through Russell Hobbs?!!

It worked fine until it didn't
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

The microwave seemed like a good purchase until it broke exactly 2 years after buying, which mean it's no longer under warranty and now I need to buy a new one. Honestly, thought that if I buy a microwave I can expect it to work for at least 5 years, and the fact that it stopped working after only (and exactly) 2 seems like a scam to me.

Overall, the product is very easy to use. The quality of build is very high and the price is not too extortionate. Not 5 stars as it is too soon to tell. I bought this product around a month ago, and so far it has served me well.

    Recipe ideas for your microwave

    2. Meanwhile, place the salmon in a microwavable container with the lemon and dill. Season and cover with cling film. As soon as the potatoes are cooked, cook the salmon on full power for 3 minutes. If necessary, extend the cooking time by up to 2 minutes, checking at regular intervals until the salmon is cooked through. Place the salmon under the grill for 2-3 minutes if you prefer a crisp grill finish.

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

    2 small ciabatta loaves

    300ml jar of tomato pasta sauce

    150g grated cheddar cheese

    Pizza toppings of your choice,

    such as pepperoni and sliced



    1. Preheat the grill function for 5 minutes using your microwave instruction manual as a guide.

    2. Slice the ciabatta loaves in half to make 4 long slices.

    3. Place the ciabatta on a baking tray and on a high grill rack. Lightly toast the bread for 2-3 minutes on each side.

    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.

    When using the grill function, please allow 5 minutes to pre-heat the grill to the correct temperature before using.


    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 RHM2031 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.

    Grill Function

    The grill function on your microwave is ideal for those who enjoy crisp brown food. For example, you can use this microwave to melt cheese on nachos, browning the top of your lasagne and toasting garlic bread.

    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.
