What oven or microwave fits in my IKEA kitchen?

All built-in microwave ovens and ovens with a standard niche of 45 or 60 centimeters fit into an IKEA kitchen. Do you opt for a smaller microwave oven? Then it depends on your type of IKEA kitchen or it fits. In this article I explain which IKEA kitchen systems are available and which devices fit into this.

2 types of IKEA kitchen systems

There are 2 types of IKEA kitchen systems: the METOD kitchen system and the FAKTUM kitchen system. First, you have to know which system you have in your kitchen. Below, I'll explain how to check which kitchen system you have. Select METOD or FAKTUM in our product filter. You'll receive an overview of all build-in products that fit your IKEA kitchen. The rule of thumb is that all build-in microwave ovens and ovens with a standard niche height of 45 and 60 centimeters fit into IKEA kitchens. A microwave oven with a niche height of 38 centimeters only fits in a METOD kitchen system.

METOD kitchen system

The purchase date of your kitchen determines which IKEA kitchen system you have. Did you buy the kitchen after 2 June 2014, you have the METOD system. Don't remember the exact purchase date of your kitchen? You can also check the row of holes along the edges of the kitchen cupboard to see which system you have. The METOD system has a double row of holes.

IKEA FAKTUM kitchen system

FAKTUM kitchen system

If you bought the kitchen before 1 June 2014, you have a FAKTUM system. Don't remember if you bought the kitchen in May or June 2014? There's another way to see which system you have. The FAKTUM system has a single row of holes along the edge of the kitchen cabinets, whereas the METOD kitchen system has a double row.

Conclusion

To find out whether other build-in appliances fit your IKEA kitchen, you have to check which kitchen system you have. There are 2 types of kitchen systems: METOD and FAKTUM.
