Why You Should Own an Over the Range Microwave

Why You Should Own an Over the Range Microwave

2 minute read

Looking for a compact appliance that packs a punch? Over the range microwaves are a great addition for any homeowner looking to save on energy and space in their kitchen! Since most over the range microwaves combine the power of a convection microwave with a ventilation system, it’s no surprise that more of these handy appliances are showing up in townhomes, condominiums, and houses. Our team at The Range Hood Store is here to answer your questions and show you all the benefits of over the range microwaves! 


An over the range microwave is meant to be installed above your range, cooktop, or induction stove and pull all of the fumes and grease away from the surface. 


Some over the range microwaves have internal ventilation, which means that the air is recirculated and filtered through charcoal filters. Other microwaves offer an external ventilating option, where the smoke and fumes are sent outside through a duct. Depending on your cooking habits, you may prefer one ventilation style over the other.

As convection microwaves do, over the range microwaves come in a wide variety of sizes and styles. There are options like stainless steel or black stainless steel, to traditional or modern handles to match any home’s style!

Microwave wattages can affect how quickly and evenly your food heats up. There are some microwaves that start at 600 watts and others that offer over 1,000 watts. The newest product to join the ZLINE family is the ZLINE Over The Range Microwave in stainless steel and black stainless steel. With up to 1,500 watts, 2 internal fans with speeds up to 300 CFM, Convection Technology, and 11 different power settings, the ZLINE Over The Range Microwave is sure to change how you cook in your kitchen.
