Features of Morphy Richards Besta Black 18L

  • 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 understand and 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. The accessories, on the other hand, are quite well-made. The crumb tray is solid and has an anti-stick paint.
  • Bake mode – The Morphy Richards Besta OTG has a revolutionary ‘Smart Bake’ technology to aid your baking by maintaining a constant temperature throughout the cooking cycle.
  • Motorized rotisserie – This OTG has an internal motorized rotisserie. A motorized rotisserie rotates the skewer rods slowly to ensure that your kebabs cooked evenly on all sides. 18L is too small to grill a full-sized chicken but is more than enough for your paneer tikkas.
  • Stay on and keep warm function – This function helps keep your food warm until it is ready to be served. You don’t have to worry about reheating. You can also use this function for defrosting frozen items.
  • Temperature controller – This OTG has a maximum temperature of 230C, which is sufficient for most of your baking needs. Some users report inconsistent heating. 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 Besta 18-liter OTG is an excellent OTG for someone looking to kick start home baking. It has all the essential accessories and features that a beginner needs.
Once you master the basics of home baking, the small 18-liter capacity will not give you room to innovate. If you want to improve your home baking skills, you are better off with a larger OTG, like the Morphy Richards 52-liter RCSS.
