Description

Morphy Richards Besta 18-liter OTG is an excellent choice for first-time home bakers looking to kickstart their home toasting dreams. This appliance has all the features and functions you get from a large capacity toaster oven but costs lesser.

Morphy Richards equips all their OTGs with features and accessories that are vital for home baking. Another good thing about an OTG is that they can replace the microwave oven and use uniform heating inside the chamber for baking instead of the harmful microwaves.

This OTG’s black metal finish and small size should complement most kitchens from an aesthetic standpoint. Overall, this OTG is an excellent choice for a beginner.

Morphy Richards 18L variants

Morphy Richards has two 18L variants.

  • Morphy Richards Besta Black 18L
  • Morphy Richards OTG 18 RSS Stainless Steel

Both OTGs have the same set of features and come with the same set of accessories. The only difference is their design.

An in-depth look at the features of Morphy Richards Besta Black 18L OTG

  • Design and ease of use – As a beginner, one of the vital things to look for when buying an OTG is the ease of use. The 18L Besta black’s control knobs are easy to use. The instruction manual, while not detailed, but is enough to get you started. This OTG does not have an inner chamber light, which is a letdown.
  • Build quality – This OTG has an average build quality. The outer metal is prone to dents and is thin. The accessories, on the other hand, are well-made. The cooking tray is solid and is non-stick.
  • Bake mode – The Morphy Richards Besta OTG has a revolutionary ‘Smart Bake’ technology to aid your baking by maintaining a uniform heat inside the chamber.
  • Motorized rotisserie – This OTG has an internal rotisserie. A motorized rotisserie rotates the skewer rods slowly to ensure that your kebabs cook evenly on all sides. 18L is too small to grill a full-sized chicken but is more than enough for your paneer tikkas.
  • Wire grill – This oven comes with a wire grill. You can use the grill for grilling your food. Remember to use the crumb tray when grilling to prevent drippings on the heating element.
  • Stay on and keep warm function – This function helps keep your food warm until it is ready to be served. We recommend that you choose an OTG over a microwave oven.
  • Temperature controller – This OTG has a max temperature of 230C, which should take care of most of your baking needs. Watch out! This OTG has a faulty thermostat, which results in heating issues. We recommend that you keep an external thermometer handy.
  • Removable crumb tray – Morphy Richards Besta OTG has a detachable crumb tray to collect spillage during cooking. Crumb trays are convenient for easy cleaning and also protects the bottom heating element.
  • Multifunctional knobs – It has the following control knobs.
    • Temperature control knob
    • Function select knob
    • Timer knob

Bottom Line

Bottomline inforgraphicsMorphy Richards OTG 18 RSS OTG is a perfect kitchen appliance for someone looking to kick start home baking. It has all the essential accessories and features that a beginner needs. However, we feel 18-liters capacity is small to cater to a family of four.
We at userreviews.in recommend buying a larger OTG, like the Morphy Richards 52-liter RC OTG or the 60 liters OTG for your family. The Morphy Richards Besta Black OTG 18 RSS is suitable for individuals living alone and is an excellent replacement for a microwave oven.
