Under-counter ovens are models designed to fit flush with a standard counter. Under-counter ovens are usually about 26 inches in depth, but some models can be deeper by a few inches.
The depth of these ovens refers to compact under-counter appliances like refrigerators and dishwashers. These units have an integrated look and allow more workable space in the kitchen. Some better under-counter ovens have features such as defrosting, touch control display, static and turbo grill and static bake. Some models have stainless steel trims and have a programmable clock and timer. The shallow design creates a streamline effect, adding more space.
