Bajaj 1701MT 17 Liter Solo Microwave Oven

Everybody is aware that Bajaj is an Indian super brand which deals in manufacturing automobiles to electrical items for household. Although more prominently known for manufacturing fans in the latter category, Bajaj is looking to have a breakthrough in kitchen appliances through its microwave oven range. Its Bajaj 1701MT Solo Microwave Oven is one of the most sought after microwaves in the 17L category. Let’s figure out all about this amazing kitchen appliance by going in its details.

A bit outdated on design

This microwave from Bajaj has a power capacity of 700W and as stated above a capacity of 17L. Priced at Rs. 3990, it’s one of the low priced microwaves from Bajaj. The product type of this microwave is solo and its model name is 1701MT. One of the most basic microwaves to hit the market from Bajaj, it has 5 power levels which can be operated through mechanical knobs. This is where Bajaj has used the outdated design in this piece as most microwaves available in the market today have buttons instead of knobs.

Cooks everything and anything

The build of the knobs is, however, quite strong and sturdy. The cooking time provided by this microwave is almost 30 minutes. It is perfect for small families which are looking to use it for heating up meals or even cooking them for that matter. All edible items from eggs to meat are cooked very effectively and nicely by this microwave within a matter of minutes. This is something which isn’t possible for small microwaves, but this one from Bajaj makes it look tremendously easy. It’s also perfect for students who look forward having homemade meals but don’t have sufficient kitchen spaces in their apartments.

Decent warranty period

Bajaj provides a warranty of 1 year on this product from the time of its purchase. However, it doesn’t cover any external damages caused to the product due to negligence and mishandling. It is the perfect device for people looking to defrost food items, which are frozen. The color in which it makes the product appears very sophisticated and classic at the same time.  The monochrome colour of this microwave would easily compliment the interior space of your kitchen or any other space where you decide to place in your house for that matter.


  • Small and compact
  • Cooks well


  • Outdated design


Although there are so many microwaves available in the price category to choose from, this product from Bajaj very well stands out. It’s a highly reliable microwave which you can depend on to provide you with sumptuous meals every single day. The price is definitely one aspect of this product which makes it appear very attractive to users. It is a piece definitely worth going for if you are bored of the complicated large grill machines and microwave ovens which promise so much but deliver nothing, to be honest.
