What's an OTG?

 

OTG is Oven-Toaster-Griller.

OTG is otherwise known as oven-toaster-griller. This oven is mainly used for reheating food, toasting and also for grilling. An OTG has coil-like elements that heat up the food. These coils are present both at the top and bottom of the OTG ovens. The thermostat present in the coil allows the food to be heated evenly. Depending upon the food you are cooking you can use any one of the coils or both the coils at the same time. For baking Cakes and cookies you can heat both the coils but for heating, purposes heating a single coil is enough. The only problem in this OTG is that they cook at a slower rate but the result will be delicious food. If you are a person who prefers to eat tasty food rather than a fast cooked meal then OTG will be a perfect choice for you. 

OTG has heating elements both on its ceiling and the roof of the oven. To grill something you are required to heat the top coil and for the daily life of normal day things both of the coils are supposed to be heated.

OTG has heating elements both on the ceiling and also on the roof of the oven. It’s completely your choice in accordance with your requirement either one or both coils to heat your oven.

For grilling purposes, you need the top coil to be heated and for normal baking, you need both coils to be heated.

An OTG can reheat, keep warm, grill; not only this but also a barbecue and most importantly bake food items. An OTG is basically, a baker’s delight. You can bake crisp tasty cookies, some spongy brown muffins and some other kinds of stuff to perfection.

You just need to have some time on hand, because OTG’s are renown for the delicious and wonderfully mouth-watering food they produce and not the speed of cooking.

OTG VS Microwave Oven

Usage of the oven has become common these days. What started as a simple reheating device in India has now developed into a device that can be used for cooking and baking. The purchase of these organs has increased rapidly in India but that still exists a common misconception between OTG and microwave oven. Most people do not understand the difference between these two devices. Now, let us see about OTG in detail. 

OTG play such an important part of our daily life. There are a variety of kinds of OTG are available in the market with specific purposes such as baking or toasting. OTG stands for Oven, toaster, and griller and known as a toaster oven. They are just smaller in size and have a front door, baking pan, and removable wire rack. A microwave is just another type of oven that uses some sort of microwave to heat up the food.

While purchasing oven one of the most common confusion people face is whether to buy an OTG or a microwave oven.

  • OTG uses specialized coils that act like a thermostat and heats the food evenly. But in the case of a microwave oven, it uses radio waves otherwise known as microwaves for heating up the food. The radio waves are passed at a frequency of 2500 megahertz that allows it to be absorbed by water and some food particles. This absorption of microwaves produces heat and allows the food to be cooked in return. 
  • In the case of OTG, the food is cooked evenly when compared to a microwave oven where the food is cooked more evenly. 
  • The eating time of an OTG is slower when compared to the microwave oven. While an OTG oven takes 15 minutes to cook food the microwave oven takes only 5 minutes. 
  • An OTG oven uses a low amount of power while the microwave oven consumes more electricity when compared. 
  • The OTG oven is more cost-effective and the total price is lower and economical. The microwave oven is costlier when compared to OTG.
  • The OTG is mainly used for baking, making toasts, and grilling by microwave is only used for reheating and baking purposes. 
  • The OTG oven is lighter in weight and it can be easily moved around while the microwave oven is difficult to move due to its heavyweight.  
  • The OTG oven does not have an auto cooking function but the microwave oven has the ability to auto cook the food. 
  • In the case of an OTG oven, you can use containers made of glass, silicone, metal, and plastic. But in the case of a microwave oven, you cannot use metal as the metals have a low absorbing capacity of the radio waves. 
  • The capacity of an OTG oven is up to 60 liters, while the microwave oven can hold only 32 liters. 
  • The microwave oven has special digital displays that allow you to track the temperature and time regularly while in case of OTG oven it is difficult to keep track of using the knobs. 

The microwave comes in different types such as –

Basic microwave, microwave with grill and microwave with grill and convection. Microwave on contrary with convection and grill includes closest to the OTG and could nearly conduct everything an OTG can.

In Microwave, the cooking is done through warmth waves just like you see in a normal pressure cooker. Microwaves are a kind of electromagnetic wave. While in OTG cooking is done through smooth warming of the rods.

In Microwave, we can cook rice, and warm up food rapidly. The microwave has convection mode for baking anything but however, OTG is especially intended for the purposes of baking and grilling. For example, bread, cake, treats, cookies, biscuits, and soft rolls, can be cooked in OTG. OTG is ideal for baking and roasting but not for cooking.

In Microwave, the food heated quickly but OTG takes more time.

For OTG, the utilization of power is minimal. OTG is very easy to use however the same utilization is higher in the microwave, which will cost us the high-power charges.

Pros of OTG

Cons of OTG

Uses of OTG

  • As told above, OTG’s are well-known kitchen appliances used for basically three main purposes.
    • As an Oven
    • As a griller
    • As a toaster.
  • It does work the same as a microwave but it is cheaper and easily operable when compared to microwave.

What to purchase?

Before purchasing an OTG oven or a microwave, you have to consider your requirements and what type of cooking you need the oven for. If you need the oven for simple purposes you can purchase a simple OTG oven that can be transported easily from place to place and also much easier to cook. If you are looking for an oven that cooks food within a short span of time with a high-level mechanism then microwave oven is the best option for you. The companies have also started producing events that are suitable for Indian type of cooking. Search the market carefully before purchasing an oven that would suit your style of cooking and food items.
