Microwaves take up so much room if you keep them on a counter or even on a stand. Why not have an easy to access and space saving shelf? On top of giving you more room to work, having a shelf makes it easier to clean your microwave because it simply won’t get as dirty as if it were on a counter top. Atlantic Metalworks’s (formerly Prima Stainless Steel) shelves can support a significantly higher amount of weight than even the largest of microwaves. That’s because the MWS-1824-E microwave wall shelf is made of 18 GA 430 Stainless Steel. These shelves are also great for storing other types of food equipment such as mixers, slicers or dishware. Backed by the NSF, our microwave shelves are guaranteed free of material and workmanship flaws typically found in lesser quality shelves.

Please note that mounting hardware (anchors and screws) are not included.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Microwave Wall shelf We have purchased several of these shelves as we update the kitchens in a small apartment building. They work perfectly into our plan and the tenants love that they get more counter space with the microwave on its own shelf.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too large for my small kitchen I returned the item because it was too deep for my kitchen and hanging it over my stove was not feasible because of the depth. If you are using it in a residential kitchen be sure to measure, measure, measure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shelf at a good price While remodeling my kitchen I decide to free up some counter space and put the microwave on a shelf. After lots of searching on the wed I found exactly what I wanted ay Prima. This shelf holds my full sized microwave and looks great. The workmanship is excellent. I mounted to studs in the wall since my microwave is heavy and the shelf is very strong mounted this way. I would definitely recommend it to a friend and buy again if I need another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality but deliver dented I bought the item recently. It is of good quality but came dented and not worth shipping back for a new one. The stainless steel had s shine better then what the sales rep stated it can match your stainless steel appliances. Works well for our microwave that was placed above our stove. Overall good piece and great customer service would order from here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made. Looks good. Good quality material. Worried that my hallow wall anchors won't hold it well, but the shelf itself is heavy duty, well made. Angles and welds are good quality, and installs easily on key holes. Has hole for power cord in bottom. Plastic coating protests finish until installed.

How much distance should there be between a gas stove and the actual shelf. No hood over stove.

Asked by: trishee
If this unit will see service in a commercial setting, there may be relevant building or health codes that would dictate the distance. As you don't have a hood, I imagine that this is a residential application, in which case personal preference and safety considerations should be the main determiners. I would consider mounting it towards the high end of your comfortably reach. Mounting it higher will give you clearance to move and cook freely and keep the microwave further from any grease, oil, or stream generated by the stove below.

Can these shelves be attached to a cinder block wall?

Asked by: msartmom
You can install this in a cinder block wall provided you are using the proper mounting. When selecting your mounting equipment at a local hardware store, be sure to look for something that is designed for cinder block.

Does this include mounting hardware? If not how can it be mounted? Using L-brackets?

Asked by: Megan
There is no hardware included for mounting. The back of the shelf has holes for installation, you would not need to use an L-bracket.

what about the range hood vents if over the stove

You would need to check your local regulations to see if it is OK to mount this over the stove. What is required as far as hood ventilation is determined by the local inspector.

The picture shows a hole at the back. Is this accurate? I need a hole for the power cord.

Asked by: Greedy
Yes, the hole is at the back on the bottom of the shelf for the cord to go down through.

Asked by: TINALONG
These shelves are not rated to a certain capacity because it is largely based on the type of anchor used as well as the strength of your mounting surface. We recommend working with a local hardware store to purchase a correct mounting which will fit your needs. If you overload the shelf, the issue will typically be it coming out from the wall, not the stainless steel bending and not being able to hold the weight.
