Steaks fresh from the microwave?

Whirlpool's newest microwave-hood combo can pop corn and grill steaks in the same box.

If your microwave has been getting away with making popcorn and reheating leftovers, maybe it's time you showed it the door and ushered in a microwave that really knows how to cook.

Steak's up! Whirlpool

Whirlpool has a new model that offers grilling. In a microwave.

To deliver, the GMH5184XV (catchy name, no?) uses a quartz heating element that alternates with microwave energy to grill and brown food. So, you can enjoy that barbecue without standing outside in the chill of winter or firing up the indoor cooktop and filling the house with smoke.

Whirlpool's microwave is a microwave-hood combination with an industry-exclusive nonstick interior and newly designed hidden vent you can clean with a damp cloth. The new 6th Sense-sensor cooking detects the humidity level of the food, and adjusts the time and temperature as needed during the cooking process.

Look for the GMH5184XV in June. It's currently set to retail at about $520.

For basic lighting needs, this bulb looks like a solid pick, but its dimming performance leaves a lot to be desired.
