The 5 Best Over-the-range Microwave Ovens October, 2018 (And 12 Others)

This page offers an ad-free experience, in exchange for "Check Price" and review links to lead to the stores you know, which pay us a commission that has no effect on your price. Items are chosen independently (regardless of price) by our computer review crawler and commented by human analysts. Read more about our constantly-updating unique ranking system


Our list showing the newest Over-the-range microwave ovens includes only microwave ovens that obey to these rules:

  • To make it to our best over-the-range microwave list, models must include an exhaust fan located above the stove that acts as an oven hood.
  • Most over-the-range microwaves (OTR) also include one or more filters and multiple hood speeds
  • There are typically three over-the-range microwave dimensions: 24-inch, and 30-inch models extendable to 36 inches, and the most low-profile models start at 14 inches (space saver models) but 17 or even 18 inches of height are more typical.
  • If you are looking to fill up a 36-inch over-range microwave spot, what you need is a 30-inch model and a 36-inch trim kit.
