Microwave Trim Kit HELP please!
Ok, I've only ever owned cheap microwaves in my life that sit on the countertop. Now for our new house, we are planning to buy a stainless steel countertop microwave (thanks to this forum!) with a 27" trim kit for that built-in look, to be installed UNDER the countertop.
My dilemma is with the trim kits. There are not a ton of pictures online, but I've looked at all that I can find. It seems like GE is the only one with the smooth SS trim kit (you know, no holes in it). All the other trim kits I've seen have the grill plates / vented slats. Aesthetically, I think that the smooth look is much better than the open slats which I imagine will be a dust-collector. WHAT DO YOU THINK? But there are several major brands that I haven't been able to find trim kit pics for. Anyway, my hesitation with the GE is that all of their microwave have gotten lots of negative reviews.
DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANOTHER BRAND THAT MAKES THE SMOOTH STAINLESS TRIM KITS FOR MICROWAVES?
Also, if the dimensions match, are trim kits interchangeable? In other words, can the GE trim kit be used with another brand's microwave (provide it has the same dimensions as the GE microwave that's supposed to fit there)?
Thanks so much, everyone!
