This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Unlike stands and islands that are made to stay in one place, microwave carts are built with mobility in mind. Although they come in a wide range of designs, many of those offered online are duds that are difficult to assemble and made with shoddy materials. With this in mind, we exhaustively researched many available options to provide you with some of the very best models. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. If you'd like to contribute your own research to the Wiki, please get started by reviewing this introductory video.

Editor's Notes

July 15, 2020:

Other than their average size and price, there isn't too big of a difference between microwave carts and similar options such as kitchen island carts . Like any normal microwave stand, all mobile versions need to have a large enough tier to securely hold an actual microwave. With so many compact microwaves available, this isn’t difficult to accomplish.

While microwave carts aren’t particularly dangerous, we would advise you to avoid loading them in any way that would leave them top-heavy. If the model you choose is light, has a narrow base, or is on the tall side like the Origami Island on Wheels or Whitmor Supreme, you should be sure to pay extra attention to how much weight you place on top of it in proportion to how much weight is carried below. If a cart’s load isn’t properly distributed, it risks tipping over and spilling its contents, which could result in the destruction of property, or worse, bodily injury. Of course, as ever, we urge you to always follow manufacturers’ guidelines where weight restrictions are concerned.

Elsewhere, one small thing to note about the Cosco Outdoor Living Folding is that each of its shelves has a small lip which might block your microwave door from opening if its bottom edge is low. Having owned two of these carts myself, I can vouch that they're still worthy of the list despite this potential setback, especially considering they require zero assembly, look great, and are easy to store.

A final word to the wise: If you are getting a cart specifically for a microwave as the name of this category implies, be sure to get the exact measurements of both the appliance and the cart’s landings correct before buying. These things are heavy, and therefore difficult to return if you find yourself unhappy with your purchase, so you will definitely want to get it right the first time. As they say, measure twice and cut once.
