Discover the Pull of Microwave Drawers

More accessible, less noticeable and highly space efficient, microwave
drawers are a welcome newcomer in kitchen appliances

Microwave drawers are sweeping our nation's kitchens for good reason. With a capacity of approximately 1 cubic foot, the average undercounter microwave drawer fits in seamlessly with the rest of your cabinets while opening up prime real estate above your stovetop or on your countertop.

Microwave drawers are conveniently located at hip level, allowing for much safer handling. Marketed towards families on the go, they're installed at an accessible height for children and equipped with safety locks for homes with toddlers.

As the countdown to my own kitchen renovation continues, it looks as if I'll be adding another appliance to my wish list. I love to tuck things away, so it seems a built-in streamlined microwave drawer is the perfect solution for us.
Take a look at these examples:

The short end of a kitchen's island typically goes unused. The 24-inch microwave drawer oven is a smart use of that space.

Put a microwave drawer next to the oven, so once a dish is defrosted in the microwave you can pop it right into the oven.

Standard microwaves have a hinged door designed for right-handed cooks, but microwave drawers open wide, allowing easy access for everyone.

A clutter-free work surface is high on my priority list. By tucking the microwave under the counter you've freed up prime countertop real estate.

While this country kitchen is large, the appliances (including the microwave drawer) are centrally located, allowing for efficient food preparation.

Viking's Undercounter DrawerMicro Oven beautifully matches the Viking 48-inch Dual Fuel Range in this kitchen.

By installing a microwave drawer, the designer was able to specify a contemporary exhaust hood in place of an over-the-range microwave with ventilation.
Original historic touches like wide plank flooring and exposed beams enrich this updated cookery. With the microwave hidden at the end of the large island, you're able to notice the architectural qualities rather than the appliances.
Rather than eat up wall cabinet space, this

microwave drawer tucks easily into typically

unused space on the kitchen island.
