Microvisor® is a state of the art mini-hood designed to attach to a "microwave over the range" and improve the exhaust function of the microwave. It was developed by an accomplished chef who was a successful owner operator of three restaurants in New Jersey for 25 years.
The design and intended use of the “microwave over the range” was to utilize cabinet space by incorporating an exhaust system/secondary heating source, and installing it in place of a more expensive exhaust hood. Since the microwave over the range is normally about 15” deep, and all cooktops and ranges are a minimum of 24” deep, it is virtually impossible to effectively exhaust the fumes from cooking on the front burners.
After two years of designing and manufacturing prototypes of the microwave range hood, the MicroVisor has been perfected and refined to its present form. It has been proven to capture 90% of the cooking fumes and odors produced while cooking on the front burners of a cooktop or stove. It prevents the smoke, grease and odors from mixing with the air in your home and from accumulating on the furniture and cabinets. In addition, it has been proven that fumes from cooking oils that escape into the air of your home are harmful to your health. In addition everyone that has a MicroVisor microwave range hood in their home says that it enhances and completes the look of their microwave over the range. The Microvisor® Mini Hood is removable, easy to store and no electrical componets are necessary.
