If you're used to microwave cooking then you're probably used to the compromises that it brings. Our innovative range of microwave cookware by MICO with Heatwave Technology lets you have perfect snacks in a fraction of the time. MICO - the new method in your microwave! Picture your lunch. Do dry uninspiring sandwiches and disappointing microwaved leftovers sound familiar? For us here at Morphy Richards it certainly did, so we set out to change it. We had an idea; what if you could use your microwave to grill, poach, fry and bake to perfection, delivering the home-cooked taste you love. That is what MICO gives you, lunches and snacks beautifully cooked in a fraction of the time. A poached or fried egg is something to savour, but if you've ever tried to make one in a microwave you'll know only too well the state they often come out in; hard and devoid of flavour. MICO Egg is the solution to beautifully microwaved eggs with runny yolks in a fraction of the time. The new HeatWave Technology is able to use microwaves to poach or fry eggs in minutes.

Cleaning is easy too, if you've had no leaks you can actually just wipe out the metal plate sections to remove the butter residue and you're good to go again. It does however take apart quite easily to wash it or put it in the dishwasher.
I've now tried various fillings, cheese n beans, cheese and mushrooms, cheese n ham, cheese and chicken, pulled pork etc. all came out great. Like with any gadget it's just a question of using it until you find out the perfect time setting for the microwave you're using and the bread/filling combo you are toasting.
I've also taken it to work and found it convenient to do a light lunch toastie there too!
It maybe seems a little expensive, but you are getting chunky non-stick metal plates for your money.
UPDATE 28 Feb 2019
Have given up on the poached eggs I find I can cook an egg without oil or water using a small basin (le crueset rice bowl), I cracked an egg into the bowl, placed it in the microwave, covered it but allowing steam to escape, and zapped it for 1 minute on the medium heat setting (1000w microwave so medium has to be 800w at a guess). Perfect egg. First morning I have enjoyed a 'poached' egg on toast, and it took less faffing about.
We've been wanting to replace our electric toastie machine, and bought this.
It does seem a bit big when you put sliced bread in it like Warburton's, but home made bread fills it up if you like baking your own.
So you butter the bread, I used Warburton's medium white sliced, place the butter side down on the metal tray, I put it central and it sealed fine even though there was a gap at either side. Put on your cheese tomato etc then put a slice on top butter side facing up. Then put the top tray on and press down then snap the sides shut, which is very easy. If you can't shut it you've put too much filling on.
Stick it in the microwave for the indicated time, flip over and zap it again.
Take it out using oven gloves, it's quite hot, then pop the sides and use a silicon spatula to lift the toastie out.
If you wipe it with kitchen roll whilst hot, the excess cheese, butter and other stuff comes straight off.
Then repeat up to four times, you have to leave it to cool after this for 30 minutes, so if you have a big family, buy 2.
We thought it worked very well, the toasties were crisp and cooked through and even though the bread didn't fill the toaster it sealed all round the edge.
Once finished, wipe with kitchen roll and leave to cool for 15 minutes, then dismantle which is easy once you've worked it out ( each side has 3 bits that pull apart) then stick it in hot soapy water for 5 minutes, go over with a brush or cloth, rinse under hot water and leave it to dry. So easy, don't understand why others have had a problem cleaning it.
This will be great for the caravan as it's much smaller than a plug in toastie maker.
Overall, it's well worth the money
At first you think it takes how long to cook a toastie in the microwave but however it works this product produces the perfect toastie time after time best of all when done you just chuck it in the dishwasher so no cleaning a toastie maker for me being disabled anything that makes life a tad easier is a bonus but this to me is marvellous
Although I have an inverter in my cab and could of easily bought a sandwich toaster for less money, I read the reviews and decided to give this a try. More compact than a stand alone sandwich machine and easy to clean, this certainly ticks all boxes.
As I have a lower wattage microwave in my cab, I spent some time at home perfecting the results in a more substantial microwave oven and then adapting the times for my own use on the road.
I have not been disappointed!
This product gives great results and is an easy clean after use.
Toasted sandwiches are well cooked on the inside and crisp and toasted on the outside.
Would highly recommend.
Just for information, I use a 700w microwave and 3 minutes cook on full power, turn over the whole unit and another 3 minutes makes the perfect toasted sandwiches.
FYI this unit does get very hot so please use a heat resistent / oven glove when handling the product.
