Kitchen Magic

A Contemporary Beauty!

This kitchen remodel is gorgeous. The clean lines and overall look is rich and sophisticated. While traditional is well, traditional, we think that the sophistication of contemporary is a much more sophisticated look.

When designing a new kitchen, choosing the overall style is vital and should reflect the rest of the home's style. As we mature, we realize that a new kitchen, while it needs to be functional with upscale appliances and materials, it should be ascetically appealing. This is the time you're entertaining and bringing in friends and family to delight in your kitchen space.

Wow them with a rich style. Show them you're not afraid to stray from the pack and do something completely different!

I'm gutting my 1972 kitchen and I've picked and purchased every other appliance and have put off choosing a microwave. I dread making this decision because I absolutely know I will hate the microwave drawer. I know, I know, it's totally in and everyone is getting one. Every high-end kitchen sports one but I have to point out the obvious issues:

they are shallow so tall cups won't fit

the contents of your cup slosh around and 9 out of 10 times spill

try reheating a few times and waiting 2-3 secs for the drawer to close - that's time you'll never get back

food is bubbling in the center and cold on the edges because it doesn't rotate

cleaning the ceiling of the microwave is like taking a yoga class

You can keep this ridiculous appliance, I just convinced myself not to get one while I was typing!

I shared many of your same concerns and I LOVE my microwave drawer. Yes, the biggest downside is the time it takes for the drawer to close, but I’ve found the heating to be very even. No problem not having a carousel. I understand technology is built in. Sharp make all of the drawers so no need to spend more on a rebranded name. I love the reheat and beverage and popcorn buttons. They heat perfectly. I’m not a huge microwave user, but the drawer has exceeded my expectations. Cups do fit rather well. I love that I can lift out of the drawer and not up high above a range top. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
