Over the Range Microwave Ovens

Commonly known as "microhoods", over the range microwaves take everything great about the microwave and elevate it. These appliances fuse the functionality of classic countertop microwaves with the purifying ability of range hoods. The result? One appliance that's easy to manage—and saves space, too. Whether you're planning a full kitchen renovation or just looking to replace your microwave yourself, find an over the range microwave for your home.

Over-The-Top Functionality

Wait, so what does a range hood even do, anyway? It's more than just a fan—these air purifiers strip air of smoke, grease, and odor, then recirculate air back into your kitchen. When it comes to absolute air purification, these microhoods aren't flawless (even with included purifiers). Ideally, air would be filtered outside the home through proper ductwork, but some kitchens don't have the room for that kind of setup. That's why these appliances work so well as a one-size-fits-all solution.

Speaking of size, these over the range microwaves are designed to take the pressure off tiny kitchens. By taking the microwave off the countertop and placing it over the stove, you free up a decent amount of counter space. Use this area to set up your "mise en place"—a French term that chefs use to mean putting everything in its place. Use your liberated space for a cutting board, stash bowls of chopped ingredients, or keep kitchen staples like a spice rack close at hand.


Say goodbye to opening the microwave only to find that your food is cold. These modern over the range microwaves come with smart features like sensor cooking to ensure you never drink cold soup again...unless that's your thing. Nearly every model will come with certain features, like adjustable power levels and a button for adding 30 seconds/one minute. But these machines only get smarter.

Two machines in about three? Look for over the range microwaves that are built with convection to get even more from your device. These convection microwaves feature the same heating element and fan that make classic convection ovens popular. With this mode activated, you can bake cookies, roast meats, and brown croutons—all with your microwave.

Eye-Level Style

With a microwave over the range, your new kitchen appliance will be extra noticeable at eye level. Make sure you select one that will go well with your home's established style. White, black, and stainless steel look good in nearly any kitchen, though you should try and match them with the range beneath for a truly unified look.

Hoping to keep greasy fingerprints off the microwave? Look for appliances designed to be fingerprint-resistant. These print-proof finishes make cleanup easy with just water and gentle cleansers.
