Summary: When we saw this unit on display, it was at the top of a counter-depth island. Ours is installed 8" below the top of the counter (Poor Aristokraft cabinet design) and you have to bend down to see controls. There is no minute plus or instant reheat.
Summary: "I had it installed under the counter and next to the range. It is very easy to pull the drawer out, put my food on the tray, push the drawer in, pull the drawer out when the food is ready, and, in no time at all, enjoy a meal! How convenient! Why didn't someone think about a drawer before this "
Summary: "Love the Sharp Microwave in a drawer. I am very short, too short to reach a over the range very well plus cooktop is in an island,did not want to take up counter space. Installed this microwave below the cooktop, love it."
Summary: "I really love the drawer. With my new kitchen design, the microwave placement was in the island, below countertop level. This saves me from bending over too much - which would have been necessary with a conventional drawer."
Pros: easy access from above. love the oen and close buttons
