An undercabinet microwave is a type of microwave that can be installed under a cabinet by using a mount bracket. This type of installation is generally used to reduce the amount of space that is used on top of a kitchen work surface.
An undercabinet microwave is typically installed using a built-in microwave model and can be installed in other configurations, such as inside a wall recess. This type of microwave installation can also be finished by using extra cabinetry or a trim kit to give it a more integrated look. A similar type of microwave design can also be installed over a cooking range, though these types typically also include ventilation and light for cooking.
