Every modern kitchen needs a microwave, which works by heating up the molecules inside the food via electromagnetic waves. The over-the-range G2Max SpeedCook is the perfect microwave for a small kitchen because it does triple duty. It also works as a range hood and a convection oven, which cooks like a conventional oven, but faster because a fan circulates the heat over every surface uniformly. Families on the go can heat up food or roast a whole meal in the same small appliance.Whirlpool.com
