Over the stove microwave
Posted by: ChrBert from: San Diego, CA on
We looked at a ton of different microwaves. Our house didn't come with an over-the-range microwave, so here we are 7 years later trying to replace appliances and putting them where we always wanted them.
I chose this microwave most lye because of the brand name and the reviews from other customers. It seems this one lasts much longer than the Korean built imports from other popular brands that if by be slightly cheaper.
We installed ourselves after retrofitting a few cabinets to make sure it was the right height for the space. Installation was easy. The directions from the manufacturer were very wordy and did not get to the point. I assume this is for litigation purposes.
Once the bracket was installed, the rest was easy. It went up without a hitch and works well.
We had a granite backsplash that was hindering out space and ease of installation. Once we removed the portion of granite that was holding us back, it was very simple.
As other reviewers said, the fan is loud. But no louder than my previous range hood fan.
The light is in the back, next to the wall. It's not as bright as my former range hood, but I'll eventually get used to that.
I feel like the design should be that the fan should be in the back and the light should be in the middle. However, it is the opposite with this machine.
The timer sound and the microwave end sound could be louder. They seem very quiet and not likely that I will actually hear it going off 20 feet away with a TV blaring in the great room next to the kitchen.
It looks great and is much larger than my previous microwave. It does what a microwave should do at this point. I love the ice cream softening button. That comes in handy in my house.

Outstanding microwave; plenty of cooking options. Easy to install, great directions and the intelligently designed box included a perfect template to drill holes - got it done first try with confidence. Has a metal shelf inside, bit of a surprise but it is nice.

Nice looking,great cooking
Posted by: Casualcook from: on
Bought this to replace a 10 year old Frigidaire that was a bit smaller. I like the way this looks and feels-the door feels solid and the interior has a nice finish. It is VERY quiet when cooking, and there have been no issues with cold and hot spots or spattering that were common when using our previous microwave. I disabled the extended "beepity beep" that sounds when food is done heating as it was kind of annoying to me. I've used the sensor cook option and it has worked well for heating frozen entrees. This is not the cheapest option out there, and it is a cut above the more utilitarian models I've had before.

This microwave is great. It has all the right bells and whistles. Although, the fan is a bit loud when on high.

Nice Microwave oven
Posted by: JimmmyVanhalen from: on
Nice looking unit installed above range. A little larger than my old unit so measure the space from your cooking top to the bottom of the unit carefully. Works very well for our household. We do not cook much with these, but when needed its been perfect so far. Navigating around within the setup menu is a little awkward.

We don't use the microwave for much more than warming up stuff, but this one looks awesome. We bought the matching stove also. It is easy to use and warms up stuff quickly.

The microwave is very nice, easy to use, and quiet. I had spent much more money on my previous microwave, and it only lasted 5 years.

This is third kitchenaid microwave we have owned. Have downgraded a bit with this one because we have had browning and grilling capable as well as convection capable units before but never used these functions. Wife does like the interface on this unit as well as 16 sensor buttons. Last one had touch screen..This unit gave us a scare second day in use the display went out,the unit worked but no screen. Later that night came back on and not happened again.Also like the large dish.I notice the smaller wattage of 1000 compared to our last witch was 11000.Because of glitch with screen and lower power this unit gets 4 stars.
