How much clearance does a countertop microwave need?

There is 3 inches of clearance on both sides. There is a small clearance in the rear. The front edge of the microwave should be placed back on the counter or shelf to prevent accidental tipping. We recommend that you locate it at least 2 feet away from the counter.
