Building My Dream Kitchen- My new Sharp Microwave Drawer Oven™

When Reuben and I were on our third or fourth date-I told him it was one of my goals in life to someday have an all-white kitchen with a huge island in the middle. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always dreamed of such a kitchen, an airy space with white cabinets and lots of light, where I could make so much more than just meals for my family-but memories as well.

Flash forward 7 years to when we started designing the kitchen for our renovation project and we both already knew how it would look-white cabinets, a giant island, and lots of light. As we near the conclusion of our renovations- I still cannot believe we were able to construct my dream kitchen-and I cannot wait to start making memories with my family in that room. Aside for the color of the cabinets and size of the island-it was also important to us that we invest in state-of-the-art appliances that make our lives in the kitchen-just a little bit easier.

Enter the Sharp Stainless Steel Smart Easy Wave Open Microwave Drawer Oven™. When having our cabinets custom made last year, we weren't completely sure what appliances we wanted in our new space, but from the start we were so smitten by the Sharp Microwave Drawer Oven™ that we had our kitchen island custom built to accommodate it. Let me tell you friends, this state-of-the-art appliance packs a major punch. It Works with Amazon's Alexa and has over 35 programmed commands, such as “Alexa, microwave seafood”. Not only does the sensor cook feature calculate cooking times for you, but the microwave is also motion activated!

That's right, you wave at it (or ask Alexa) to get it to open for you, this makes holding a little one in one arm and my coffee ready to be reheated in the other a much easier experience. I also love that the control panel is hidden away. It's still very accessible but it maintains that gorgeous stainless-steel design when not in use.

In addition, we were attracted to the ultra-sleek- design of the Sharp Microwave Drawer Oven™, perfect for our modern vision for our kitchen. We positioned the appliance on the inner side of our island, facing our sink and other appliances. Being someone who is always looking for fast-simple easy recipes, I know I’ll be getting a great deal of use out of the Sharp Microwave Drawer Oven™ microwave throughout the years. We are so excited to begin to use our microwave and continue to test out all of the exciting features it has. If you’d like to check it the microwave out for yourself, you can shop it here. xox
