need a low-cost microwave - under-counter - 24" cabinet
Any suggestions for a low-cost microwave that would fit in a 24" cabinet installed under the counter? I'm in Canada.
I read previous threads and did some research and found these options:
* Panasonic makes a microwave and trim kit designed for 24" wide cabinet, but the total cost would be $675 - seems overpriced to me
* Sharp microwave drawer - again quite expensive
* cheaper options??
Should I believe manufacturer recommendations about required clearances around countertop microwaves? I found an LG microwave that would fit in the cavity but they want 4" clearance on all sides - that seems like a lot to me, even for on a countertop.
When you get a custom trim kit, does it have to conform with manufacturer recommended clearances?
