help me choose a new microwave

Posted by daratwist ( on

I am remodeling my not so big kitchen. We use a microwave to warm up drinks and leftovers. I don't have a lot of space in my kitchen and I hate the idea of taking up so much valuable base cabinet space with a microwave drawer. What I really want is a small microwave that I can install in a shelf in 12" deep cabinets. Sharp makes a model with 15" depth but it is designed to vent down, to be installed under a cabinet. I want it to be about 18" wide. Do you know of any nice looking microwaves that aren't as big as most of the ones sold today. Thanks for your input.

RE: help me choose a new microwave

I think someone else who wanted a MW on a shelf in the cab used a GE Spacesaver, also designed to go under a shelf. Try to avoid Frigidaire if you can (my countertop Frigidaire died after 18 months).
