A microwave is usually one of the biggest offenders in wasting counter space. Unless you have this wall-mounted microwave from Kevin Choi.

When not in use, it collapses almost flat against the wall. Release the bottom part and place a bowl of soup on it. You can then cover it with the retractable top part and watch the plate heat up through the translucent material.

Now, this, unfortunately, is a concept design. But someone definitely needs to pick it up because this microwave can turn small-space cooking on its head.
