Microwave Ovens - About twenty-five years ago, 1 in 4 homes in the U.S. had a microwave oven; today it is estimated that more than 90% of all homes have one. They have truly become ubiquitous in the American kitchen. If you are planning a kitchen remodel and will be upgrading your appliances, it is nearly a certainty that you will be shopping for a microwave oven too. Unlike conventional ovens, microwave ovens are still seeing continual improvements all the time; so your new microwave will likely have improvements and features that your old one did not.

Their are five basic categories of microwave ovens on the market: Countertop, Over the Range, Built-In, Drawer models and then any of these with the addition of a convection cooking feature. Learn more about the different models and their features, their Pro's and Con's and our recommendations, select by oven type from the links below.
