Why choose a Speedwave oven?

2 Cooking technologies in one oven

Speedwave ovens have the ability to use two different types of cooking technology:

  • Traditional cooking - for great cooking results, excellent heat distribution and even browning.
  • Microwave cooking - for speed without ever compromising on the quality of food.

Our home economist explains all about Speedwave microwave technology in the video here.

Extra space

Space inside a microwave is traditionally limited but due to the full-sized oven, the SpeedwaveXL offers a spacious 68-litre capacity, with 5 cooking levels.
The oven also features Stirrer technology which evenly distributes microwaves and removes the need for a turntable, freeing up even more space.

Time saving

By combining traditional cooking with microwaves, you can cut cooking times by up to 40% while maintaining food quality.

Special functions

Enrich your cooking experience by discovering a variety of special functions available with Speedwave.

Make the best popcorn with the 'pop' function, defrost ice cream slowly and gently with the'melt' function, and defrost meat delicately with the'soft' function, for example.

Inverter technology

Inverter technology provides continuous and precise temperature control with no hot spots, allowing you to cook and defrost food in a more gradual and consistent manner, resulting in a noticeable difference!

Accurate temperature control preserves nutrients and vitamins by avoiding abrupt temperature peaks whilst the constant flow of microwaves accelerates cooking, defrosting, and re-heating programmes.


With microwave and traditional cooking all in one appliance, the SpeedwaveXL oven allows you to free up valuable space on kitchen worktops and built-in units.

A new improved oven cavity

The cavity of all Galileo ovens has been completely redesigned for better heat distribution which allows for even better cooking and browning results. The new airflow system also ensures no flavour transfer between dishes, so you can cook sweet and savoury meals all at once. Other improvements include a new smooth rounded cavity that has been welded for easy cleaning, a new easier-to-remove internal door, and soft hinges for soft, silent opening and closing of the door.
