An over-the-range microwave is a type of microwave that is installed above your range, cooktop, or induction stove that pulls all of the fumes and grease away from the surface of a stovetop. Over-the-range microwaves are a great addition for any homeowner looking to save on energy, space, and money when renovating their kitchen!
What Size Over-the-Range Microwave Should You Get?
The size of your over-the-range microwave depends on your specific needs and the available space in your kitchen. It’s also important to note that your microwave width should be the same measurement as your range or cooktop. For example, if you have a 30-inch wide cooktop, you’ll want a 30-inch wide OTR microwave. Remember to also allow for proper ventilation and clearance around the microwave. Considering these factors will help you select an over-the-range microwave that fits your kitchen and meets your cooking requirements.
Do Over-the-Range Microwaves Vent Outside?
Yes, you do have the option to vent over-the-range microwaves outside. Many models offer the option of external ventilation or you have the option of recirculating the air back into the kitchen using charcoal filters. These microwaves typically come with a venting system that includes a ductwork connection and an exhaust fan. If outdoor venting is a priority for you, it’s important to check the specifications or consult the manufacturer's guidelines before purchasing an over-the-range microwave.
