I have been looking for a small, light microwave
suitable for undercounter mounting. Ideally it would vent to the sides, but I am open to options. I don't have any particular power capacity requirements.
The smallest I have seen at retail are 700watt ovens that weigh nearly 30lbs. I saw one at a garage sale today for a dollar ($1) that was 26 lbs. It's an 1100 watt oven vintage 2000. Funny thing is it feels very light
because the weight
is distributed evenly throughout. Most of the new ones I have seen recently have all the weight
on one end. It feels like they weigh twice as much!
Sharp used to make one called the "Half Pint" 13.5x13.5x13.5" cube. They still sell on e-Bay occasionally, probably for more than when they were new. The earlier ones were white and black with a window, then they made some in iMac ice blue before they went to black cube about 15x15x15 with no window at all Amazon.com: Sharp Half Pint Microwave Oven: Kitchen & Dining
There's also the Wavebox AC/DC microwave
, but it seems to have some pretty poor reviews on Amazon.
