Unique and Practical Gift Idea: Over-the-Range Microhood

At Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center

Throughout the 80's and 90's countertop microwaves were hugely popular as gifts. But their popularity has waned as has their practicality because of the precious countertop space that they occupy. A practical solution to this problem is to replace that old vent hood with a new Over-the-Range (OTR) Micro-hood that serves both as a microwave and a vent hood. Micro-hoods (invented by GE) are increasingly becoming standard in new home construction, but they are rarely thought of as gifts because they need to be installed. However, Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center (UAKC) has a solution to the installation problem. They have their own factory-trained installation crews. They can quickly replace that old vent hood, and they'll even haul it away for free. Take a look below at a just a few of the many micro-hoods available at UAKC, and hurry in today to order yours.

3 Micro-hoods that would make great gift choices.

Enjoy the convenience of a vent hood and microwave oven in a single appliance. Microwave hood combinations (also known as over-the-range microwaves OTRs) come in a variety of brands and have a host of feature selection. Here are just three that are highlighted below. They are modestly priced and have some great features. All of them have 1000 watts of power and at least 300CFM hood venting systems, but none of the three offer convection cooking. The Whirlpool model has a 400CFM vent, and Sensor Cooking. Each of these Over the Range Micro-hoods can be purchased at an amazing price at Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center.
