Over the Range Microwave

The last appliance remaining in our kitchen was the over-the-range microwave.  It was black, while the rest of our appliances are all stainless steel.  Functionally, its only problem was that it kept working… while we kept hoping it would break.    It also took a very long time to cook any food.

It was configured so that the fan would pull air from the stovetop, and then blow it directly back into the kitchen.  This has always bugged me.

Finished and installed

We decided to buy a new one for ourselves for Christmas, and of course, I wanted to install it myself, so we could vent it to the outside.

I followed the template and cut the hole.  I decided to use the template with the directions en Español, since I really like Mexican food.
