This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in January of 2019. There's nothing more infuriating than carrying your TV dinner all the way to the living room before discovering it's still frozen in the middle. These smart microwaves aim to solve that problem. Though there are currently only a few options that can be controlled by apps, some models have sensors to determine the optimal cooking time, so each meal comes out perfect. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best smart microwafe on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 26, 2019:

Currently there is a clear winner in this category, which is no more expensive than a traditional microwave, yet has an abundance of features. It's likely that in the future there will be many more smart hub-ready units offered, but for now the biggest choice is whether or not you want to incorporate Alexa. If not, you can still get smart sensing technology, you just won't be able to speak to your appliance.
