October 2015, after moving into a new home, I decided to update my old GE cooktop, double oven, and microwave. Kitchen Aid was having a great promotion at the time, along with most other high end appliance companies and I was having a hard time deciding on the best brand to purchase. Of course, the more appliances you buy, the better the rebate. The last home I lived in I purchased Thermador appliances and was mostly happy with them, but this time around I thought, "is Thermador worth the extra $2-3K more?" Both KitchenAid and Thermador looked very similar, stainless steel, rolled bar handles, digital display. In the past I didn't think KitchenAid looked high end, but with this new line it definitely was a competitor. I even liked the blue oven interior (which they mirrored after Wolf). I decided to go with KitchenAid in the end and now I come to my review of the oven:
I have been very happy with this oven from KitchenAid. I have owned it for several months and have cooked many dinners in it. The overall look is great. The blue interior, the rolled handles, and shiny stainless steel exterior (on a side note, the outside is magnetic! I can attach my thermometer to it). It looks just like the higher end manufacturers. Performance wise, it has done well. Recently I had some food overflow and I used the self clean function. It worked well, but in the future I think I will not use it. I had recently read how using this feature can hurt your oven and lead to future problems because of the high heat that is generated. When I did use the self clean, it got so smoky inside the oven it coated the glass and made it look dirty. Plus, the fumes were bad. My advice is to forgo the clean function and use a paste of baking soda and water, coat the oven and let it sit overnight and wipe in the morning. I also used this paste on the oven window and got it back to looking brand new again. Took a little elbow grease to get the film of smoky air off the glass, but it worked great. I also like how you can turn the "beep" off on the oven. My last oven(Thermador) was loud every time I pushed the control buttons and I had no control over it, but with this Kitchen Aid, there are more features.
On another note, I purchased an extended warranty through BestBuy on this oven. I did read several bad reviews about this oven which made me have some concerns, but I thought in the end an oven is an oven and they all do the same thing. What makes them different is size and look. I felt this oven had the same look and size as other high end models. Why should I pay $1-2K more? So I purchased an extended warranty instead. I hope I don't have to use it, but if I do end up with a lemon, at least I am protected for 5 years instead of 1.

Know what you are buying before you buy!

We're slowly replacing all of our GE appliances which were installed in our home when our house was built. We had a single oven previously and wanted to upgrade to a double oven. We even decided convection was the way to go. I probably looked at this oven at 3 different stores before finally deciding to make the purchase.
I wanted about 3 weeks for delivery. In the meantime, we prepped the area where it would be installed, retrofitted cabinets, moved other appliances, we thought we were ready. Then delivery came.
Our delivery guy needed to remove the back panel of our cabinet because this oven is deeper than the last. That's OK. He attached it, installed it into the wall and turned it on. Both ovens were running. Then we blew a fuse. Reset the fuse. It blew again. Tried only running one oven at a time. That seemed OK. But I didn't buy a double oven just to run one oven at a time. I need them bother to work.
It turns out our house is NOT WIRED properly to accommodate this oven. My home was only built in 2008, so it's not that old. We read in the installation booked and realized we need a 40 amp circuit breaker and the wiring needs to be a 12 gauge wire, when most homes only have 8 gauge wire (what we have).
So now I have to pay to have my house rewired to accommodate this oven, which I'm going to do. But really, I may have thought twice about all of this had the sales guy told me we might need a retrofit in wiring. We had mentioned how we were adding this oven to replace a single oven. No one ever suggested the wiring in the house might need to be checked first. And this monster 256 lb oven will have to be pulled out of the wall again and reinstalled.
My point is, I could have had the house rewired while I was waiting on my 3-week delivery of this oven and I'd be able to use both of my ovens right now. But I can't. I'd like to blame the sales guy entirely, but I can't. We are partially to blame here by not reading all of the technical jargon and understanding that having a double oven required double the ampage.
What I can tell you with the one oven I've been able to use, is that it works beautifully. It's a stunning oven. I love the convection, but it's taking some getting used to.

Excellent wall oven!!

Not only does this wall oven look great but it performs just as well! The easy slide rack is nice for roasts or heavier dishes. The convection is easy to use and the functionality in general is perfect!

Yes, my ovens truly stopped working 2 weeks before Thanksgiving while the service technician was there! Found these ovens online and lucikily Best Buy was able to deliver and install in time for Thanksgiving.

I purchased an older model of these ovens 5 years ago at our previous home. When we moved this summer, our new home had a single Thermador oven. Even though it is a more expensive oven, it did not compare with the KitchenAid I owned that was 5 years old. We recently purchased these ovens and they are wonderful. They are large enough to hold 6 13 x 9 pans and the convection feature works beautifully. I highly recommend these ovens.

Unit was junk and service was worse
Posted by: Charlie from: on
Bough ovens because of good reviews and previously owned kitchen aid ovens. Units were delivered on Saturday and installed. Used ovens approximately 3 Hours before they stopped working. Called best buy service and was tolled they could not send someone out to look at them for at least a week. I tolled them I had 40 people coming for Thanksgiving dinner and they said they would do nothing. I tolled them to come and pick-up ovens and will never purchase another item from best buy again. Product and service are horrible.
