Leading tool manufacturer Makita has launched its eagerly anticipated cordless microwave oven. Driven by the company’s powerful 40VMax XGT battery, the new MW001GZ is designed for portability, allowing users to enjoy hot, microwaved meals in minutes, whether on site, on the road, or at leisure.
The 8-litre capacity MW001GZ is powered by one or two 40VMax XGT batteries and is designed to utilise the power sequentially for continuous power when it’s needed.
With two output settings – 500W or 350W, the inner heating area is large enough to fit most microwave containers and provides a continuous heating time of up to 37 minutes (when used with two BL4080F batteries at 500W output).
To withstand tough conditions such as building sites, this compact and durable microwave has been manufactured with a tempered door glass and is dust and water resistant. The appliance also features large carry handles for easy transportation and is also supplied with a carry strap. A USB port is also built-in for charging devices such as mobile phones.
As part of Makita’s XGT battery platform, this exciting product fits in seamlessly with Makita’s expanding XGT power tool collection, enabling users to swap batteries between tasks and switch to the microwave when required.
“As a world-first for Makita, we are thrilled to launch this outstanding new cordless appliance,” said Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK. “The new MW001GZ is the perfect jobsite or leisure companion, affording users with a hot, microwaved meal or drink in minutes without the need for sourcing an AC supply or power generators. Thanks to Makita’s powerful XGT battery technology, the microwave delivers great runtimes, so users can heat up food and drinks over a full working day.”
