The 2 Best Over-the-range Microwave Ovens March, 2020 (And 27 Others)

Alphachooser's list of the newest Over-the-range microwave ovens includes only microwave ovens that obey to these criteria:

  • 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.

The List:

Despite a lower review sample, taking into account its aggregated ranking of 89%, we conclude that the Sharp R-1214 is, as of now, Alphachooser's best Over-the-stove microwave 2020. Alphachooser also concludes that our sample of 139 reviews from our sources gives us a safe-enough confidence level (more on confidence levels) that prompts us to name it the most interesting choice as of now.
