**microwave's**feettothe top of the cabinet. If

**measuring**a display in thestore,start your

**depth measurement**from the counter thedisplaysits on to the top of the cabinet, this ensures you get theactual

**depth**, or height, of the

**microwave**.

Also know, how do you measure the size of a microwave?

To **determine** cubic feet, one should multiplythe**microwave's** interior length by width by height, thendividethis total by 1,728. So, a **microwave** that is 18 by 14by 12inches is 1.75 cubic feet in **size**. **Microwaves**varyfrom 0.6 cubic feet to over 2 cubic feet, with theaverage**size** sold being 1.4 to 1.8 cubic feet.

**Built**-in models are designed tofit**standard** cabinet **widths**, which have openings 24,27and 30 inches wide -- the **size** of **standard**wallovens. **Microwaves** intended for **built**-ininstallationare available in heights ranging from about 19 to22inches.
