Integrating A Microwave Into Your Kitchen Design

Integrating a microwave into your kitchen design

We have heard this question from designers; “Where do you put the microwave?” Some people do not like the look of a counter top or over-the-range microwave in their kitchen.

If you are not building or remodeling your kitchen, the simplest solution is to put the counter top microwave in a different room. Some people put it on the counter of a nearby pantry or on the counter of a kitchenette in another area of the home.

However, we offer a few other options if you are planning to build or remodel your home.

BUILT-IN MICROWAVE OVEN

Bosch Built-In Microwave at Bekins

If you have a wall oven, or plan to have a wall oven in your home, a built-in microwave can integrate with it.

We’ve seen designs where a built-in microwave goes above, below or beside the wall oven.

You should know the built-in microwave is often smaller than a traditional wall oven.

If you install the built-in microwave to either side of your tradition wall oven, you will likely have to offset the size difference with a trim kit.

Countertop Microwave With A Trim Kit

You can have your counter top microwave installed into your cabinetry with a trim kit. This option would integrate your microwave into the design of your kitchen but also cost less than installing a built-in microwave.

a microwave drawer

A microwave drawer provides a very similar look to the counter top microwave option with the trim kit, but a much different function.

Instead of opening with a side hinge, a single touch opens the microwave like a drawer.

Some people prefer it, but it’s not for everyone so we would definitely recommend trying it out in our showroom first if you have never used a microwave drawer before.

Don’t Clean Your Dishwasher Filter? Get A Maytag!

Maytag Dishwashers at Bekins, 4-blade chopper Dishwasher Cleaning

We recommend many ways to maintain your appliances. However, if you are someone who does not do the little things to maintain them, think about a Maytag brand dishwasher for your home. While other brands ask you to remove and clean their filter, Maytag uses a 4-blade chopper to disintegrate any food particles.

Why Do I Need A Filter Or 4-Blade Chopper?

Maytag 4-blade chopper, get Maytag dishwashers at Bekins.

You will obviously have food and drink particles left on your dirty dishes. Some people don’t know that your dishwasher cleans better when it has particles to latch onto.

However, your dishwasher would struggle to rinse away bigger particles. Larger particles will either collect in a filter so you can wash them away in your sink, or they need to get chopped down to a size that can fit into your drain.

Maytag dishwashers choose to disintegrate larger food particles with a 4-blade chopper. The chopper creates one less element that needs cleaning in your dishwasher.

Use the 4-blade chopper in our showroom

It won’t cost you a dime to test a Maytag dishwasher and compare it to other brands in our state-of-the-art, interactive showrooms. Nor will it cost you anything to let our experts help you determine the best model for your needs.

Have you washed your dishwasher lately? That may sound like a funny question. However, cleaners such as Affresh and Glisten can help.

Especially if your glasses and dishes get cloudy after a wash.

CLEAN YOUR DISHWASHER TODAY

Brands like Whirlpool recommend cleaning the interior of your dishwasher about once per month.

If you can’t remember to clean it each month, just focus on cleaning it today.

We offer two cleaners that can help, Affresh and Glisten. However, we recommend you consult the Use and Care Guide for your appliance before starting.
