quietest over the range microwave ovens

Almost every household has a microwave. It has got to be one of the most convenient inventions in the modern-day world. Most people simply cannot live without it in their kitchens. You need it for a wide variety of functions.

These functions include; heating up food, baking small cakes, cooking light dishes, defrosting meat, boiling water, etc. I cannot possibly exhaust the uses of a microwave.

I absolutely hate the noise that is made by most microwaves, especially when I am trying to get my beauty sleep and someone is in the kitchen heating up something or cooking.

As we all know sleeping is one of the crucial activities for our body, just like eating or drinking water is.

Living without it is not an option, as it affects our mental health, mood, endocrine, and other systems in our body, or better said our life overall.
