    OK you wise owls. We are looking at which microwave oven to fit in the top locker of the above (not yet recieved) motorhome. About 500 watt and as shallow front to back as possible. Locker depth is only 25 mm. Help.

    OK you smarty panties you, so I meant cm. I was a pounds shillings and pence man, but still need help for the original question. The owls dont appear to be as fast as the takers of the filtered water. Mitch.

    cant help with a selection of microwaves but and its a big but why would you want a microwave in a top locker surly this spells disaster.
    the last place i would want anything hot and spillable for example hot microwaved soup higher than the standard worktop height the potential for a serious scald is far greater the higher the hot substance.

    this is of course my personal opinion.

    For the reasons which Andy pointed out I'm always amazed when I see that manufacturers install microwaves high up in vans. Some are much too high for Jill (and some of our friends) to use safely. There is also the question of weight. Microwaves are not the lightest of devices.

    The question I would ask anyone contemplating buying a microwave for the van is do you really need one? We have been all electric at home for cooking since we married nearly 40 years ago but manage perfectly well with gas in the van.

    For our first 18 months of having the van we used traditional cooking pots & pans but 3 and a half years ago bought a double skillet and now would not be without it. Different methods but just as varied & enjoyable a diet and the difference is all part of the fun.
