Electric ranges with integral microwave ovens often have varied features. The Sharp Insight Series electric range, for example, features a glass ceramic stove top with four burner zones and a warmer zone. Below it, a microwave drawer pulls out from the unit, above a combination conventional and convection oven.
The three-in-one design of the Sharp brand model is well-suited for small kitchen areas, according a synopsis by online appliance retailer A.J. Madison. The integrated microwave oven frees up counter space otherwise used by a separate bulky appliance. The unit features digital LCD displays and front-mounted glass touch controls. The convection option, modeled after European systems, cooks foods faster and more evenly.
