The different types of microwaves that equip our kitchens today have come a long way since I was a kid. This essential appliance is available as a countertop microwave, as a built-in microwave over the stove, or as a microwave drawer. I have had all of these types over the years and it’s easy to see why microwave drawers are so popular! They are the ultimate in form and function.

ZLINE Microwave Drawer

If you have been thinking of adding a microwave drawer to your island, do it! This ZLINE model is the ultimate in form and function.

The ZLINE microwave drawer in my island is by far one of the most useful appliances in my kitchen. I love that is below eye level for a minimalist look, the beautiful black stainless steel, and luxury kitchen design aesthetics.  The drawer function is super easy to use with convenient cooking settings that even my kids can reach and operate with the touch of a button. They love being able to pop their own popcorn with the popcorn quick cook setting!

Extra Countertop Space

The extra space on the counter also makes room for some other small appliances that I use on a regular basis. Besides, I like my kitchen counters to be clutter-free (as much as possible), and it definitely meets that goal.

Functionality Meets Accessibility









Most homeowners can install the microwave draw themselves if you have an existing space to put them in. Or you may need to hire a carpenter for any additional framing your microwave drawer might require like we did. We sacrificed some existing drawers at the end of our island, but it was well worth it.  If we were getting new cabinets installed I would definitely makes sure to have a space reserved for a microwave drawer and an outlet built-in.
