Putting a microwave in a cupboard?

Sweet Pea | Aug 15, 2008 11:36 AM

After reading a lot about how useless combo range hood/microwaves are when it comes to exhaust, we've decided to keep our counter top micro and existing range hood when we renovate our kitchen. I'm wondering if it's safe to put the microwave inside a lower cabinet rather than having it sitting on the counter. The cupboards have already been ordered, so it's too late to incorporate a built-in, but we could feasibly adapt a regular cupboard by installing an outlet inside and reinforcing the shelf. Thoughts?
