Types of Microwaves
First, built-in microwave ovens are installed directly into pre-existing cabinet space for a custom look that integrates seamlessly with your kitchen style. They are usually placed above a wall oven for easy transitions between oven and microwave.
Next, over-the-range microwaves get your microwave off your countertop by placing it over the range where it can double as a vent hood. This will help clear smoke and odor from the air. These are also called microwave-hood combinations.
The most common, countertop microwaves provide quick access right where most of the making happens—the countertop. All they need is an outlet and a stable, flat surface. Installation is simple! You can even take them with you if you move homes. Countertop microwaves can also be installed in cabinets, much like a built-in microwave, with an additional trim kit.
In addition, drawer microwaves are ideal for open kitchen designs and islands. Under-counter and in-wall installation options free up counter space for ingredients and food preparation. Often placed at waist height, they’re easy to reach and, if you don’t want a lot of visual attention on your microwave, they’re fairly discreet.
Finally, a convection microwave utilizes oven-like heating elements and a fan to circulate heat around the microwave cavity. Convection microwaves typically let you bake, broil and roast similar to the way you would in a full-sized convection oven.
