A Disappearing Act: Microwave Drawers

April 10, 2012

Tired of the visual blight and bulk of your microwave? Consider the microwave drawer.

Microwave drawers can be built into your under-counter cabinetry or placed underneath wall ovens, freeing up precious counter space. They come in two standard drawer widths: 24 and 30 inches; while they're more expensive than the garden-variety model, consider this: they also function as a warming oven. Here are a few product options to consider.

N.B.: For more under-counter appliances, consult our other posts on Refrigerator Drawers and Dishwasher Drawers.
