    Can anyone recommend a small microwave , small re it may have to go into cupboard under the sink , anywhere else will be too high up or cupboard too shallow re depth , lots of cupboard spaces but not deep enough
    Ideas ?

    I would suggest measure the cupboard and go to Currys.

    Thanks guys
    I did measure it will take
    H 10 1/2" D 12" W 15"
    Think it's the 15" wide that's going to be a problem

    There are a few compact microwaves on Amazon. We went for a Lidl special combined grill / microwave. I'll go and measure it for you :)


    EDIT: The Lidl one is too too wide at 47cm. So at least you can eliminate that one. Also the VanBitz alarm works. :)

    All the sizes vary except the widths which all seem to be very similar

    Glad it wasn't broken. Terrestrial or Astronomical scope? Martin is "into" astronomy and has a massive scope awaiting assembly. It was put away when we were deocrating, we still have decorating to do this winter so it is still in it's boxes.

    Got microwave this morning currys smallest they had inboxed & put in motorhome cupboard , the req airflow in manual
    says 15 cm top my gap is 3cm,
    rear should be 10 cm my gap is 0 cm, left hand side should be 5cm mine is 1 cm,
    right hand side open space that is ok
    So nowhere near correct airflow
    So pulled it out & now it lives on worktop between cooker & sink not ideal but it's that or nothing will put on floor for travelling.
    It just takes up valuable work top surface which I've not a lot of .

    @Alonsos

    Could you store it in the motorhome cupboard and just put it on the worktop when you are using it?

    Regard,
