Microwaves are often the ugly duckling of the kitchen; you know you love it, but it's an unfashionable square takes up too much space. Whether they are made by Kenmore or Samsung, appliances that take up valuable counter space can seem like they're not worth the money, especially when you can have something so much better for not much more money. Over-the-range microwave ovens offer the same heating capacity as your countertop model while freeing up space and making your dinner routine more efficient.
You might be wondering what makes an over-the-range microwave oven so unique. After all, isn?t it just a microwave that somebody hung up on a wall? In fact, placing a countertop microwave over the range will not yield quite the same result. An over-range microwave usually offers more space for heating, a fan for your stovetop work, and a light that helps keep your stovetop visible as you cook with pots and pans below. These microwaves are specially designed to handle the hot temperatures coming from your stove, while still providing the same quick heating features you love in your countertop model.
