The LG charcoal microwave ovens feature a charcoal lighting heater that can offer India specific use cases such as recreating the tandoor taste, and offering a specific mode for making ghee in 12 minutes. Along with the Heart Care Foundation, the microwave also comes with 30 auto-cook recipes that LG claims is designed specifically to cater to cardiac needs. The oven also has a motorised rotisserie that eases the process of making roti at home, and a Diet Fry mode that minimises the use of oil in fried food. The oven features a stainless steel interior, and applies a minimalistic design to keep up with the times.
