Amazon offers its AmazonBasics Microwave with Alexa for $41.99 shipped. As a comparison, it typically sells for $60 with today’s deal being the first price drop we’ve tracked and a new Amazon all-time low. While this is largely just your typical microwave, built-in Alexa functionality lets you control it and set timers with any compatible Echo device. Features include 10 power levels, a child lock and various smart cooking modes. Add an Echo Dot for $24 more and jumpstart your Alexa-powered cooking setup. We found it to be a suitable kitchen accessory in our hands-on review and most Amazon customers agree.
If you’re not ready to go all-in with an Alexa-enabled microwave, consider entering Amazon’s smart home ecosystem with just a speaker. The Anker Eufy Genie is rather affordable at $18, making it the current lowest-price entry into the world of Alexa. We loved it in our review.
AmazonBasics Microwave features:
- Now it’s easier to defrost vegetables, make popcorn, cook potatoes, and reheat rice. With an Echo device (not included), quick-cook voice presets and a simplified keypad let you just ask Alexa to start microwaving.
- Automatically reorder popcorn when you run low and save 10% on popcorn orders—enabled by Amazon Dash Replenishment technology
- Compact size saves counter space, plus 10 power levels, a kitchen timer, a child lock, and a turntable.
- Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new presets.
