So you need a new microwave for your kitchen, but you're unsure about which type to settle on. Built-in or over-the-range? Countertop or drawer? Resources out there like our microwave buying guide
will explain the differences between the types, so you can get a better grasp on which to purchase for your kitchen.
There are several benefits to drawer microwaves like the
Sharp KB6525PS. Because they are installed within your cabinetry, they don't need to take up any counter space. If you want it placed in your overhead cabinets but don't want it to claim the spot that a range hood would fill, that is also an option. Some people use their stovetops for a lot of high heat jobs, so they want to avoid the risk of damaging or melting an over-the-range model.
However, another real convenience is being able to lift your items up and out of the microwave, instead of pulling them down toward you. It is easier on you, it doesn't require much bending, and it is safer if you are handling hot liquids that you don't want to spill. Not to mention, you can open the drawer to stir things around any time without it being a big deal. Then, when it comes time to clean, the job will be super simple as well.
This particular Sharp built-in drawer microwave is 30" wide, making it more ideal for installation in preexisting cutouts than the 24" model. The
capacity is 1.2 cu. ft., so the surface area is large enough for loading casserole dishes inside, and it is tall enough to hold 20 oz. cups. It works at 1,000 watts and offers you 11 variable power levels. Even though there is no turntable in the floor, the microwaves are well distributed so there won't be any hot spots.
The Sharp KB6525PS comes with a plethora of useful options. Under
Sensor Cook, Reheat, and Popcorn you will find 12 settings, and there are 6 automatic defrost settings. The defrost works like a dream, thawing your foods without cooking them, and the Popcorn mode won’t leave you with burnt kernels. There are also Melt and Soften buttons, a Keep Warm function, and a Beverage Center. Don’t worry about switching on Soften for your butter or ice cream, because it won’t get melted. The warming feature is immensely handy and will heat items for you for up to 30 minutes.
If you install this microwave lower than eye level, it still will not be a strain to read or operate thanks to
angled controls and a digital LCD display. Accessibility will not be an issue either. Choose to open it with the push of a button through the AutoTouch Control, or tug lightly on the Pull/Push Easy Open Handle. The internal motor will do the rest.
Drawer microwaves have been a recent trend because they look attractive and low-key in the kitchen. If you want to give your home the same treatment, the Sharp KB6525PS is here to fit the bill. Order it from Goedeker's
