Magic Chef Appliances

Did you know the Magic Chef stove was the first product put out by the brand in 1929? These days, the manufacturer is most known for its countertop appliances, but its complete catalog offers even more possibilities for budget shoppers. Here’s a crash course on Magic Chef appliances.

Magic Chef Microwaves

The Magic Chef microwave is one of the most familiar appliances in the lineup. These countertop microwaves are available in standard capacities from 0.7–1.8 cubic feet and come in contemporary stainless steel designs, traditional black and white models, and retro designs in red, white, or mint.

Magic Chef Ranges

Shoppers might be surprised to know Magic Chef also produces 24” ranges that are great solutions for compact kitchens. Magic Chef ranges are available in electric and gas fuel types, with four cooking zones on each model. Sealed burners provide durability and easy maintenance, while smooth radiant heating elements provide a sleek presentation and an easy-clean surface.

Both varieties are manufactured with stainless steel trimming and black glass for a touch of contemporary style.

Magic Chef Wall Ovens

Like its lineup of ranges, the Magic Chef 24” wall oven also features a contemporary design in black and stainless steel with a space-saving profile made for smaller kitchens. Currently, Magic Chef only manufactures a single wall oven model. However, with convection baking and multiple cooking modes, the Magic Chef wall oven is an affordable alternative to other convection ovens higher in price.

Magic Chef Cooktops

Completing the suite of Magic Chef cooking appliances are its cooktops. In true Magic Chef fashion, these gas or electric cooktops come in either 12” two-burner cooktops or 24” four-burner cooktops that save more countertop space compared to standard 30” cooktops. While Magic Chef 12” cooktops are convenient for small kitchens, they also provide additional cooking zones for larger cooking spaces.

Magic Chef cooktops come in gas and electric options. Standout features include sealed burners and smooth radiant heat elements, just like on Magic Chef ranges.

Magic Chef Refrigerators

From the mini fridge to compact refrigerators, Magic Chef refrigeration offers buyers with the largest variety of products for dorm rooms to compact kitchens. Across the lineup, standard features like spill-proof surfaces, in-door storage, adjustable shelves, and crisper drawers provide essential food storage needs for fresh and frozen items.

Magic Chef refrigerators range between 1.7–10.8 cubic feet of capacity and are crafted with reversible doors and recessed handles for added space compatibility and flexibility.

The majority of Magic Chef fridges come in black, white, or stainless steel, while Magic Chef retro fridges also come in mint and red if you’re looking for a little more flair in your dorm room, office, or apartment kitchen.

Magic Chef Freezers

If you have the space, a Magic Chef freezer is a great way to free up your main freezer compartment by storing frozen bulk hauls. With models ranging between 3.0–8.7 cubic feet of capacity, Magic Chef freezers come in convenient freezer options for small spaces (or even an affordable option for the garage). Shop Magic Chef upright and chest freezer models in black, white, or stainless steel to match your kitchen’s aesthetic.

Magic Chef Dishwashers

One of the handiest ways Magic Chef simplifies jobs in the kitchen is with its lineup of portable dishwashers. Rather than installing into cabinetry, Magic Chef portable dishwashers sit on the countertop and install directly into a sink faucet, so you don’t have to compromise valuable workspace for cleanup. Inside, six place settings, collapsible tines, and adjustable racks make loading dishes easy and efficient.

Magic Chef Laundry Appliances

Let’s take a detour from the kitchen to the laundry room with Magic Chef compact washers and dryers. This collection includes portable washers and dryers, as well as combo washer and dryer units. Washers offer between 0.9–3.0 cubic feet of capacity, while dryers come with 1.5–3.5 cubic feet of dryer capacity. On the lower end of the size spectrum, Magic Chef washers and dryers are ideal for single-person households or couples. On the other hand, Magic Chef washers and dryers over 3 cubic feet of volume are considered standard-size laundry appliances suitable for regular laundry needs. 

Models come in top-loading and front-loading designs with multiple washing and drying temperatures, spin settings, and cycle options that provide extra value for their price.
