Looking at GE Monogram microwaves either the convection ZMC1095 or a regular family-sized ZE2160. Why can't either be installed on a peninsula under a counter top if the cabinet is properly made/lined with materials commonly placed in oven cabinetry? And why the 36" height minimum from floor if I'm happy having it down lower? [Prefer the ZMC1095 b/c the controls are along the top of the unit. Its 15 3/8" D x 26 3/4" W, 120Vand 13 AMPS]

Sharp makes a microwave drawer for such applications.

I'm afraid you'd have to ask GE that. In the latter case, it may not conform to temperature specifications for that height of appliance. Not all wall ovens are either. Placing such an appliance that low could be a burn hazard for small children and as such, be banned according to building codes.

But keep in mind, that is only an assumption on my part. *Check with the product manufacturer*

* Sharp makes a microwave drawer for such applications. *

Yes, they are designed to be installed that way and at that height.
