7 Types of Microwaves You Should Know About (2017 Buying Guide)

Do you want to buy a new microwave oven? That is nice, but wait a minute! Microwave ovens come in a number of sizes and builds. What kind you choose will depend on your needs as well as the amount of space available.

When microwaves first hit the scene, most people bought who bought one put it on their counter. They had existing kitchens and there weren’t the location advancements there is today.

However, it didn’t take long for kitchen designers and builders to come up with more convenient locations where they wouldn’t take up counter space. The result is that now you have many microwave location options which means there are several types of microwaves since not all can be placed in all locations. For example, to mount a microwave below a cabinet, you’re best off buying a microwave designed for being mounted beneath a cabinet.

What I think is the best part about more convenient locations is that they are at better heights than on the counter. When on the counter, you have to bend over to choose settings. Ours, as an example, is built-into the wall above our wall oven and so it’s just below my chin which makes for a very easy level to use. Personally, I much prefer microwaves to suspended, hung, or built in above the counter.

Nevertheless, these days there are all kinds, sizes, colors and styles of microwaves. The one thing that doesn’t vary too much are the features. Sure, the number of power levels may vary as well as the number of cooking presets (popcorn, pizza, potato, etc.), but those are the key features in addition to manually setting the cooking time.
