When it comes to choosing a microwave for your home, there are many options available. One of the most popular choices is the low profile over range microwave. These microwaves are designed to fit in tight spaces, making them ideal for small kitchens and apartments. But with so many models on the market, how do you know which one is right for you? Here are some tips to help you choose the right low profile over range microwave for your home.

Consider Your Space

The first step in choosing a low profile over range microwave is to consider your space. Measure the area where you plan to install the microwave and make sure it will fit. You’ll also want to make sure that there is enough clearance around the sides and top of the unit so that it can properly ventilate heat. If you’re installing it above a stovetop, make sure that there is at least 18 inches of space between them.

Think About Power and Capacity

The next step is to think about power and capacity. Low profile over range microwaves come in a variety of wattage levels, ranging from 600 watts up to 1,200 watts. The higher wattage models will cook food faster but will also use more energy. When it comes to capacity, most models have between 0.7 and 1 cubic foot of interior space, which should be enough for most cooking needs.

Look at Features

Finally, take a look at the features offered by different models. Many low profile over range microwaves come with features such as convection cooking, sensor cooking, auto-defrost settings, and even grilling capabilities. Consider which features are important to you and look for models that offer them.

Choosing the right low profile over range microwave doesn’t have to be difficult if you take the time to consider your space, power and capacity needs, as well as any additional features you may want or need. With these tips in mind, you should have no trouble finding the perfect microwave for your home.
