In fact, when my husband and I moved into our home, we found a long extension cord in a deep cupboard over the oven. We think the previous tenants had kept their microwave up above. We needed the cupboard storage, however, more than we needed to hide our microwave. Plus, I'm too short to reach up there very well!
But it's an idea I'd like to incorporate into a future home. Microwaves are not something everyone chooses to use, but I feel that their energy savings and scope for quick and healthy cooking is worth keeping one around.
Do you have an "appliance garage" or a hideaway spot for your microwave?
