size of cabinet needed for 30" WD & MWD

psyoheJune 23, 2013

What size cabinet did you use for your microwave drawer and warming drawer? My cabinets have face frames.

I bought the Kitchen Aid 30" warming drawer and the 30" Sharp microwave drawer.

Also did any of you NOT stack both of yours in the island?

I was thinking about putting the warming drawer on the left side near the oven with 1 or 2 drawers under it. The microwave drawer would go on the right near the refrigerator with 1or 2 drawers under it.

Any thoughts? Thanks, peke

My 30 inch warming drawer is going in a 30inch cabinet beside the wall oven. My microwave will be above my wall oven. Warming drawer will be opposite the cooktop

With framed cabinets you'll need 30" + whatever amount of rail you'd like to see exposed beside the appliance front.

Typically it's around 1 1/2", which would make for a 33" cabinet.

Ok thanks. I think 33" is perfect.
