Built-in microwaves are available from many nationwide appliance stores, including Lowe's, Best Buy, Sears, Home Depot and AJ Madison. Many countertop models can also be purchased with a trim kit for installation in a wall panel.
Built-in microwaves are often installed below or between cabinets and above ranges or wall ovens, freeing up counter space in the kitchen. Depending on the model, built-in units may open horizontally or vertically and have convection cooking capabilities to make crispy foods, similar to a traditional oven. Shoppers can choose from a wide variety of microwave capacities, with the most common sizes ranging from 1.2 to 2.2 cubic feet.
