Low Profile Over-the-Range Microwave

Discipline: Product

The Low-Profile MHC is a new entrant to the OTR microwave market. The compact design provides 7 inches more vertical space above the counter than competitors without sacrificing performance. The touch-to-open feature is a first in the US and benefits people with accessibility issues. The interface design splits vent features from microwave and introduces a hidden keypad to establish a clear visual hierarchy. The dual high-speed vent motors challenge the industry by prioritizing ventilation and fit. The result is a novel, market-disruptive, sleek looking appliance not only fulfills consumers needs, but upgrades their kitchens as well.
