Most of us are accustomed to using conventional counter top stainless steel microwave oven. We usually place these freestanding ovens directly at the kitchen counter. On the other hand, microwaves also come with a built-in or over the range feature. Generally, these oven microwaves are fitted above the range cooker or a kitchen cooktop. In the case of built-in, these appliances need appropriate ventilation for improved efficiency.
So, are you going to buy a microwave but perplexed as to select a built-in or countertop oven microwave? Here, our experts will guide you on what to consider when choosing a microwave:
If your kitchen doesn’t have a range hood installed, then it’s a good option as you can easily install built-in microwave anywhere you want. But if the kitchen area has a range hood, then you can either buy a built-in oven and install it somewhere or you can replace a hood with an over-the-range microwave. To whichever option you select, each one has a built-in exhaust fan that vents while taking fumes and stinky smell out of the kitchen atmosphere. Make sure that your kitchen has an appropriate ventilation system, otherwise over the range oven microwave can recirculate the air.
Increased Counter Space
One of the greatest benefits of built-in microwave compared to a freestanding one is that it provides more counter space for other kitchen appliances like oven toaster, coffee maker and much more.
If you are buying a built-in microwave (since you are habitual of using it quite often), then installing it above the cooking range can benefit you. This is so because placing both of them at the same place can help you to defrost the item in a microwave and then cook it instantly on a kitchen hob without crossing the whole kitchen to check either one.
Almost all microwave ovens contain a non-stick interior which can easily resist splashes and stains. These types of interiors are convenient to clean. You only need to wipe down the stains or spatters with a cotton cloth.
Usually, the latest models in a microwave are recommended to be used with special requirements. Hence, they provide one touch settings and much appropriate access to other features.
New microwaves comprise sensors which sense humidity to find if the item is completely done you are cooking. It means that very little guesswork is required to heat various food items.
So, when planning to shop for a stainless steel microwave, make sure that it fulfills all your requirements.
