Choosing a Microwave Oven Size

Choosing a Microwave Oven Size

What microwave oven size is best for your kitchen? Landers can help!

Microwave ovens are one product that Landers Appliance is proud to sell in Maryland. Microwave ovens come in many shapes, brands, colors, sizes, and placements; there is a microwave for everyone! The question is, which kind is right for you? One criterion to cover is the size. Below are a few considerations to help you choose the best microwave oven size for your kitchen.

Your Family’s Size

The larger the family, the more space you might want in your microwave oven. You might also consider using two microwave ovens, depending on the type of food and beverages you are cooking. Likely, a family of four or more will need a standard microwave size at a minimum.

Your Menu

Another consideration is the purpose of your microwave oven. The purpose is the crux of your decision-making process for a microwave oven size. Some people might use their microwave oven simply for popping popcorn and heating up queso. Others might use theirs for regularly heating up leftovers, frozen dinners, and beverages. Others still might want to melt chocolate, prepare large dishes, and cook fine cuisine with it. Naturally, the ideal microwave size for each ranges from small to large.

Desired Wattage

The larger the microwave oven is, the higher wattage it has. Those who want to prepare larger and finer meals may opt for a larger appliance for more fine-tuned cooking and even temperatures. On the whole, microwave ovens tend to have about 1,000 watts and most microwave oven recipes adhere to this standard.

Kitchen Space

Another factor you might want to consider is how much kitchen space you have. One can choose from various microwave oven styles, such as countertop, over-the-range, and built-in. Any of these three styles can help you save space in the kitchen; ultimately, it all depends on an efficiently-designed kitchen to house a microwave that suits your needs without creating clutter.
