How did cabinet microwaves become popular?

>smoke rises to the top, smoke alarms alerts faster
>nearby flammable wood, house burns down faster
>microwave breaks or electroshit buttons become inoperable, pay technician to fix it

I could buy a microwave for $12 at Goodwill. What the frick is so special about it? Seems like a realtor scam to be honest.

What's next? Putting airfryer's in the cabinets?

    It's an acknowledgement that most people don't really cook all that much and what they do "cook" is usually heating up something they pulled out of a package. There's limited need for fume control in most households. As a result, the puny fan in cabinet microwaves is seen as a cost savings over a real hood that vents to the outside or at least heavily filters the air.

    To me its just nice that it gives more counter space and is out of the way. No need to buy a separate stand for it neither

      I've never seen a stand for a countertop microwave though. Can you show me one? Although I do agree the only benefit of it is less counter space.

        What I meant is like a separate table/stand or kitchen cart. Like for people with small kitchens and limited counter space. But since you mentioned it, you could get something like picrel that I found on Amazon if this is what you had in mind

      Pushed by Big Microwave because they know if they don't create a situation where removing the microwave creates a massive unsightly gash in the wall, the barrier to removal and discardal of the microwave is too low and everyone would just cook all the time

      I own my place and it came with the microwave installed above the gas stove, what now?

    Home depot sells them as a part of an appliance kit, they're also easier to install than a vent hood.

    microwaves are fricking useless, its better to have two real ovens.
    Who wants to eat food that is both cold and warm at the same time...
    I do use one at work to heat my lunch, but home its just waste of space.

      You, sir, need to get with the times. Microwave is way better for certain dishes so long as you have one of these baddies. They're pretty expensive though.

          Those things are not plastic. They are made of a very heavy duty glass.

    You really shouldn't be generating smoke in your microwave.

        When you cook meat it generates smoke.
        Microwave bacon in a bowl of oil for an hour and see if your house doesn't burn down.

    My sister's house has one that's like a transformer. you press a button on the kitchen island table and the thing emerges then rises up from some doors. When you're done with it, you press the button again and it fricks back off to its hiding spot.

    >smoke/fire
    The cabinet above the microwave is false and hides an electrical outlet and an air duct leading outside. They're even better ventilated than a countertop unit.
    >pay a technician
    It's just a standard microwave with a vent facing the top instead of the back (decent units let you switch between the two). You can replace it yourself very easily.

    Why is it so hard to do a little research?

    if your microwave lets out smoke and/or catches on fire regularly you should maybe stop doing what you're doing

        I pay to save time, do you realize how much time you have wasted with captcha after 1000 posts? Or how much time you spend waiting for post/thread cooldowns?

          if Culinaly takes up a significant enough portion of your time that paying for it becomes justifiable you should maybe stop doing what you're doing

    In my apartment the stove has a vent hood and the microwave is set below the counter. It's a pain in the ass to use because it's so low, can't see shit without going down to the floor. But that's still better than having it on the counter (have a toaster oven in that space instead)
