Best Over The Range Microwave Of 2014
Over the range microwaves are great if you want to save on space in your kitchen. The best over the range microwaves combine the functions of a microwave and a hood which is why they also tend to be a little more expensive that a standard countertop model.
The great thing about them is that they are conveniently located right where you cook he rest of your food so less moving to the far corners of the kitchen. A down side though is they they do require installation as they need to be fitted and supported to take the weight, will generally need a fix electrical connection that hidden fron sight and also needs the vents linked up too. Of course if you already have an OTR microwave it should be a case of replacing one with the other but you may well still need an eletrician for the electrical side.
The LG model shown here is a very nice looking microwave that does work quite well. Its easy to install, comes at a reasonable price for an OTR microwave and also is fairly quiet in operation. It also feature nice and quiet venting and includes humidity sensing that will stop food from overcooking.
