Microwave drawers have become a popular must have in many kitchens. Having your microwave off the counter making a much better look and more functional space. If taking up wall cabinet space worries you, a microwave drawer can tuck easily into the typically unused space on the kitchen island. Putting a microwave drawer next to the oven is a neat idea. Once a dish is defrosted in the microwave you can pop it right into the oven, and voila! Another handy feature is that standard microwaves have a hinged door designed for people who are right-handed. A microwave drawer includes both right and left-handed people as the drawers pull out opening wide. Now there’s easy access for everyone! My personal favorite, THEY’RE EASY TO CLEAN! No rotating plate, the drawers feature smooth surfaces, no extra crevices or crannies for food to stick.
As the creator of microwave drawers, Sharp is also the supplier of all the vital components that other manufacturers use in their microwave drawers. The Sharp SMD2480CS, 1.2 cu. ft. Microwave Drawer uses easy wave open motion sensing technology to open. Simply wave your hand in front of the sensor and the drawer will smoothly glide open, but don’t worry you won’t engage the sensor by just walking by, nor can Fido effect the sensor either. If that still worries you, there is an on/off button included on the unit. Also, we will still have all the modern conveniences expected in a microwave, including sensor cooking for all sorts of vegetables and meats, defrost settings, and options to melt, soft, & warm delicate goods. The controls are on a smooth glass touch control panel that can be angled at 45° for easy reading. Can be purchase with or without the handles. A smart feature is the concealed logo as to not conflict with other appliance brands.
Just recently Sharp released the new version of their 24-inch microwave drawer with wi-fi connectivity, making life even better. The model number for this version is SMD2489ES.
