Deal of  the week: Argos Cookworks combination microwave

This week, keen-eyed Which? shoppers have spotted a combination microwave only recently back from our test lab with a tantalising 25% discount.

The Cookworks silver combination microwave - with the catalogue number 400/7504 - is usually £89.99 at Argos, but with 25% off at the moment it's available for £67.49. 

You can reserve it for free online to pick up at your nearest Argos store, or get it delivered for an additional £5.95.

Plus, if you spend £50 or more at Argos before 31 May, you'll get a £5 off voucher to spend on your next purchase.

Combination microwaves like this one are more versatile than you might realise - they can be used as a normal microwave, grill or as a conventional oven, letting you toast, bake and even roast.

Before you buy: take a look at our video microwave buying guide for tips from our microwaves expert.

Argos Cookworks microwave

Cookworks is Argos' own brand range of usually low-cost home and kitchen appliances - we've tested kettles, slow cookers, toasters and blenders from the range.

We also recently tried this microwave out in the Which? lab - our full microwaves review includes test results on microwaves from all the big brands including Samsung, Panasonic, Sanyo and Sharp.

In microwave mode, we were impressed with how evenly food was cooked in this model, and we noted it doesn't lose power after prolonged use - but you'll have to read the full findings in our Argos Cookworks microwave review to see if it scored a Which? Best Buy recommendation.
