what is the distance in inches between your stovetop and the bottom of the microwave. Mine is 18".

I have been told that it needs to be 24 inches. What is yours?
If that is the case, these short people will not be able to reach.

  • Mine's 17 inches, my Hubby and I put it all in by the specs that we got from the design specialist at Home Depot.... We took all of our measurements into them, and they planned out our kitchen on the computer. We ordered all of our cabinets, appliances etc from them, and it all fit in like a glove... So if "they" say it's wrong, then "they" can change it,lol..... I'm too short for 24" too! And that seems really far apart!

  • My microwave isn't above my stovetop, but it is off to the side and there's 24 inches of counter between them. Does that count? :-)
