Best microwaves for vacation rentals

Selecting the ideal microwave for your vacation rental is a crucial decision that strikes a balance between cost-effectiveness and quality. Microwaves are a necessity, as they allow for quick and convenient meals (or reheating last night’s dinner) while guests are on vacation. This blog is a breakdown of host-recommended microwaves.

Best Microwave All Around

WS Open Kitchen

This countertop microwave is the best price ($99.95 retail, save more with HostGPO) without sacrificing quality. Not the most powerful of the bunch at 700 watts, but perfect for guests warming up leftovers and defrosting meals at the touch of a button. Offering excellent value, this space-savvy microwave is ideal for vacation homes.

Best for Families


Although a higher price point, ($237.29 retail) stands out as the best option for families with its powerful 1000-watt heating system and spacious 1.5 cubic foot capacity. This microwave is designed to accommodate larger meals, making it convenient for families on vacation who may require more cooking space.

    Best for Luxe
