Modern kitchenettes often have microwave ovens.

A kitchenette is a cooking area in motel and hotel rooms, small apartments, college dormitories, or office buildings. It usually consists of a small refrigerator, a microwave oven or hotplate, and, less frequently, a sink. New York City Building Code defines a kitchenette as a kitchen of less than 7.4 m2 (80 ft2) of floor space.[1]

The word kitchenette was also used to refer to a type of small apartment prevalent in African American communities in Chicago and New York City during the mid-twentieth century. Landlords often divided single-family homes or large apartment units into smaller units to house more families. Living conditions in these kitchenettes were often wretched; the author Richard Wright described them as "our prison, our death sentence without a trial".[2]
