What is a standard microwave size?
Take into account whether or not your kitchen has enough space for a wall oven. Standard kitchen ranges are typically around 30″ wide, but a wall oven of the same size needs a 33″ wide cabinet. It’s possible to get smaller wall ovens, but this could also impact your ability to cook larger dishes.
WHAT ARE STANDARD WALL OVEN SIZES? Standard single wall oven sizes are usually 24, 27 or 30 inches wide and 2729 inches high. Wall oven depths typically range from 2224 inches in order to fit standard cabinet measurements. This depth range offers capacities from 25 cubic feet.
24-inch wall ovens: Cutout Height: 27 – 27 inches tall, but some more compact wall oven models can require as little as 23 inch height clearance. Cutout Width: 22-1/16 – 22 inches wide. Cutout Depth, excluding door frames and handles: 22 – 23 inches deep.
Electric wall ovens heat foods more evenly than gas and are considered easier to clean, according to Consumer Reports. There’s a much larger selection of electric units than gas to choose from. Budget and standard ovens that run on gas generally cost $100 or more than their electric counterparts.
The rule of thumb from installation guides is that the cabinet space should be three inches wider than the oven. Measure height and width as well as depth of the oven and leave three extra inches in all directions.
The space between stacking two Single Wall Ovens is determined by the thickness of the platform supporting the upper oven. The two trims can be touching as long as the platform supports the oven. Heat from the upper vent may be uncomfortable due to the height. See also, Wolf Typical Installation Height.
DO I NEED A TRIM KIT FOR A BUILT-IN MICROWAVE? You do not need to use a trim kit when installing a built-in microwave. However, for countertop models, a trim kit will help you achieve the same seamless and integrated look as a built-in model.
What are standard microwave sizes? Microwave sizes are fairly standardized with most over-the-range microwaves measuring around 30″ wide, 17″ high and 15″ to 18″ deep with the door closed. Built-in microwave sizes also tend to match standard cabinet dimensions.
