A microwave oven browning system incorporating a combination microwave and hot air convection oven. The microwave cooking is carried out by use of a magnetron feeding a waveguide having a top branch on the top wall of the oven, a side branch on the side wall of the oven, and a bottom branch on the bottom wall of the oven. The convection cooking is carried out by directing heated air through a plurality of inlet openings in the top wall of the oven which are dimensioned to progressively increase in size in a downstream direction to ensure even distribution of heated air to the oven and a return air opening in the lower portion of the oven which ensures that air will flow over the top and bottom of food being cooked in the oven.
