Upgrade your Kitchen with an Over-the-Range Microwave from RC Willey
If you’re looking to upgrade your kitchen, a new over-the-stove microwave from RC Willey is an easy way to do it! Find the best above stove microwave from brands like GE Over-the-Range Microwaves, Whirlpool Over-the-Range Microwaves, LG Over-the-Range Microwaves, and Frigidaire Over-the-Range Microwaves.
Advantages of an Over-the-Range Microwave
One of the biggest advantages of an over the range microwave oven is that it doesn’t take up counter space. Countertop microwaves take up valuable kitchen real estate that could be used for food prep, storage, or décor.
Another big advantage of an above the stove microwave is that it also doubles as a vent, making it essentially two kitchen appliances in one! This is ideal for home chefs who love to experiment in the kitchen—fish might taste good, but you might not want to smell it after dinner.
Besides doubling as a vent, OTR Microwaves usually feature built-in lights making it easy to see what’s cooking, no matter the time of day—or night!
Does an Over-the-Range Microwave Need to be Vented
There is no requirement that your OTR microwave is vented to the outdoors. They can be set up to either allow the fan to recirculate the air back into the kitchen or be vented to the outdoors. The vents will draw odors in through filters in the bottom of the OTR and then blow fresh air back out into the kitchen unless vented to the outdoors.
