Are most cabinets sturdy enough for a Hood microwave?


Yes. Considering how much can be put in a cabinet, and how much is typically put into cabinets high over a range, there should never be a problem.

Plus, of course, the wall is carrying a good deal of the weight. Tipping one into place and screwing it to the cabinet takes some effort, but a lot of the reason is bulkiness and awkwardness. The actual weight of the cabinet is not great.
