When ‘right swing’ is meant, it implies that it is hinged on the left side of the door and opens out to the right. Most microwaves do the opposite; hinged on the right and opening outwards on the left side. One supposes that this is due to the majority of kitchen users being right-handed. While few doors open swinging down, it is concluded that none whatsoever opens from the left towards the right; left-swing doors are incredibly functional and easy to incorporate in any kitchen, regardless of size or space limitations. They are convenient to place in cabinetry or even on the countertop. They come in various shapes, sizes and price. Most microwaves in the market today use this type of door. The reason for this is so you can place the plate or dish into the microwave with your right hand and use your left hand to open and hold the microwave door. Even left-handed people have to use the right-handed door as there are no left-handed doors in microwaves. The drop-down microwave doors are favorites because they save space, make access to food much easier and can be placed almost anywhere in the kitchen. With drop-down doors, you do not have to worry about the microwave door swinging back at you and burning yourself with a hot plate or dish. The disadvantage is that you cannot place the microwave over the counter as with most microwave door models. The interiors of drop-down microwaves tend to be a lot roomier than conventional microwaves. The main advantage to the drop-down door is that it is easier to put in and take out food, which is especially important when taking out extremely hot food dishes or when one needs to stir the food in the microwave.
