You might think that when it comes to purchasing a new kitchen package that the toughest choice for most customers would be which refrigerator or range to choose, as these are centerpiece appliances in the kitchen. It’s surprising that the piece that hangs up our customers the most is actually the microwave. “Where will it fit?” is a question we hear often.

When underneath the counters is the only place you can put a microwave, we highly recommend considering a microwave drawer. Now if you’re looking for a convection microwave, stop here! Microwave drawers do not offer a convection setting.

Microwave drawers do, however, offer a lot more, and if you’re not in need of convection, we think you ought to keep these things in mind before you purchase a microwave. Microwave drawers are stylish and fit in very nicely with any design. They make it easier to tend to your food because you don’t have to pull the food out to stir, flip or turn it. Just open the drawer, do what you have to do, and close the drawer again.

Here are our favorite microwave drawers:

Sharp 24″ Under Counter Microwave Drawer Oven in Black Stainless Steel SMD2470AH

This microwave drawer is right on trend with the sleek black stainless steel look that has taken appliances by storm. The low-profile design and hidden controls complements the look, making it the perfect addition to your new black stainless steel kitchen. Sharp is a well-known name in microwave ovens, and always delivers a high-quality product often at a lower price point than the luxury brands.

Jenn-Air- 24” Under Counter Microwave Oven with Drawer Design JMD2124WS

The Jenn-Air microwave drawer is one of my favorite microwave drawers on the market. With a beautiful look and ample features this is one of the best out there. The microwave can be installed in-wall or under counter. The Jenn-Air microwave drawer also matches nicely with other brands of appliances so you should not overlook it just because your other appliances are not Jenn-Air. I love the way it looks and functions and it is priced affordably for such great quality. This microwave drawer is available only in a 24″ width model.

Viking- 24” Undercounter DrawerMicro Oven VMOD241SS

For a little more money, the Viking DrawerMicro Oven has a slim design and sleek style that helps maximize kitchen space. Just install it under a countertop, in an island, or under a wall oven and no trim kit is required. It has 1 cu. ft. of oven capacity it and is sure to give you maximum functionality in a minimized space. The Viking DrawerMicro oven has a child lock safety feature that locks the control panel to prevent small children from opening or operating it. Viking offers this oven in a 24” Professional Oven with a commercial-type styling and design.

Wolf- 30”Drawer Microwave Oven MWD302FS

Wolf also makes an excellent microwave drawer in the same price range as the Viking drawer. The great thing about Wolf’s Drawer Microwave Oven is that it can be installed in a standard or flush inset application; meaning it will not extend beyond the cabinetry it is installed into. It can be built in undercounter or below a Wolf E Series oven and the microwave is designed to match the trim style of that oven, making it a great option for anyone who already owns a Wolf E Series oven. The Wolf Drawer Microwave Oven’s control panel also contains a locking feature to prevent unwanted use. It is available in a 24” width model as well as a 30″ width model.

Thermador- 24” Built In MicroDrawer MD24JS

Another microwave drawer option available is the 24” Built In MicroDrawer from Thermador. This microwave has plenty of room for your cooking needs, as it has a 1.2 cu. ft. capacity, the largest cavity in the luxury segment. Another feature exclusive to the Thermador MicroDrawer is the perfect flush installation that can blend seamlessly with any standard depth cabinetry, so it does not stick out and it fits in beautifully with your kitchen. The design also includes a hidden vent for even further seamless integration, and a premium glass touch control with blue LCD display. In addition, the microwave has 10 cooking modes included. But overall, if design and perfect integration with your kitchen is one of the most important deciding factors for you, then the Thermador MicroDrawer is a great choice that will give you a completely flush installation.

Sharp- 24″ Microwave Drawer Oven SMD2470AS

The newest microwave drawer is the Sharp 24″ Microwave Drawer Oven and makes a great addition to the various options available. This oven has a low profile design and hidden controls to help compliment your style. The microwave drawer also has a 1.2 cu. ft. capacity which can fit a 4qt. casserole dish and tall enough for a 20 oz. tall cup. This is very easy to use with an Easy Touch automatic drawer and will make cooking easier. Sharp will also be releasing a 30″ microwave drawer model in the near feature for those looking for a slightly larger size.

Sharp Microwave Drawer Oven SMD2470AS

All of these microwaves drawers are great choices. If you already have appliances from one of these brands in your kitchen, then you may prefer that brand of microwave over the others. However, all four of these microwaves are excellent options and do not necessarily have to be the same brand as the appliances you own. With very similar specs and features, the choice mostly comes down to which microwave drawer you like the look of the best. Each microwave has its own unique look and style, so in the end you can decide which is your favorite. For more info on any of these microwave drawers, visit or come into the store to find out more.
