How Much Space Do You Have?
Although most microwaves are compact, you should consider how much space you have available. You will want to place your microwave in a convenient, well planned location. Some microwaves are stackable while others can be mounted. No matter where you choose to place your microwave, always make sure you have enough space for ventilation.
In addition to the microwave’s dimensions, you’ll also need to consider its capacity. If you will be cooking large dishes, check to see if they fall within the capacity limits.

How Much Power Do You Need?
Your microwaves wattage requirements depend on how often you will be using your microwave. If you are using it frequently, you’ll need more wattage to cook food quickly. In addition to wattage, you also need to keep in mind the microwave’s voltage requirements and make sure you have the right electrical wiring.
