What is the height from stovetop to microwave? - I've got a similar situation now with just a hood under the cabinet and I want to install a microhood, but the handyman says to be careful about the distance from the rangetop to the microwave. What is the standard, and what is the minimum?

Futuro Futuro Kitchen Range Hoods
The best place to get this information is from the manufacturers of the rangetop and the microhood. Typically, you get a range of distances (i.e. 18" - 24", or 24" - 30", etc), so it's easy to find an installation height that satisfies both manufacturers' recommendations.

That being said, if you do plan to cook a lot, it's highly recommended to forget microhoods, and go with a full-size wall-mount hood. Microhoods, as well as undercabinet hoods, are usually very limited in terms of ventilation power and features - their smaller size prohibits using a full-power blower, so you end up with 200-400 CFM, and a 3" or 4" duct that can barely handle the exhaust.

A full-size range hood will give you 600 to 1200 CFM, with a decent 6" - 10" duct, as well as features such as variable speeds, filter cleaning reminder, timer, etc.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Susan Serra, CKD added this to Where To Put The Microwave? 14 Tips
A classic location for the microwave, hovering comfortably above the cooktop and with open countertop surfaces on either side to place items. Not my favored location, but many people find this to be a good solution.
