Bosch manufactures left-handed microwaves, or microwaves that hinge on the right side, and buyers can find them at licensed retailers or purchase them from the brand's website. Additionally, many companies such as Electrolux and Jenn-Air make drop-down microwave doors and sell them through major retailers such as Sears.
Right-hinged microwaves can be handy for those who have an awkwardly-shaped kitchen. Several of Bosch's products can open to the right or the left, depending on the placement of the hinges.
Drop-down microwaves also solve this space problem, as they only need room below them in order to open fully. Left-handed cooks also might find this arrangement less cumbersome than a traditional left-hinged microwave.
