Microwave oven

Position of microwave oven in accessible kitchen

Description
Microwave with side-hinged door in full-length cabinet next to a standard-height counter. The microwave is a bit lower than the work surface.

Authors comments
The microwave itself is not at a perfect height for the user. She needs to lift things a bit when she removes them from the microwave and place them on the counter. Since she does not heat heavy things in the microwave oven this works well. This solution is a compromise. The counter space next to the ordinary oven is at a more suitable height.
