    AWFUL, DO NOT BUY THIS

    I waited a little over 6 weeks for this to be delivered after buying it online from BB. We immediately installed it and the interior light and turntable went on when you closed the door (and could not be turned off without leaving the door open) but there was no microwave function at all. The only thing that worked properly was the clock. BB diagnosed it over the phone as a bad board and immediately sent a replacement board, which came quickly. However when the BB repair guy came to put the new board in, the new board did not work at all. Now almost three months after I purchased this thing I still have no workable microwave. I am assuming BB will make it right, but that is yet to be seen. When/if it does, I'll update this post. At this point, I am not a happy customer at all. I had a new Bosch dishwasher installed about four months ago and I absolutely love it (also from BB) so I'm not totally down on Bosch. I just would never purchase a Bosch microwave again unless Bosch refunded my money in full for all my wasted time and aggravation and provided me with a Bosch microwave that actually works -- if such a thing exists. I defnitely am not a happy Bosch customer right now. (I rated this one star only because the BB website wouldn't allow me to post the review with no stars.)

    Pretty good microwave

    Posted

    This is a pretty nice microwave oven. Installation was easy, especially with the hole template provided. Operates exactly as the manual says. No surprises. The down side is the vent fan is 25 db above the ambient kitchen noise which places it at 60 db. Sounds like a hurricane in the kitchen. Microwaving noise is low. A second fault is access to the charcoal filter. If you have a 12 inch deep cabinet the access screws are plainly visible. If you have a 15 inch deep cabinet you have to de-install the microwave to get to the screws. This needs to be done once to twice a year depending on the filter's usage. Could have had the screws on the front to accommodate any standard size cabinet.

    Don't Buy... Handle just Broke for the 2nd Time

    I bought all Bosch appliances when I redesigned my kitchen, so far my my double oven is broke... Geek Squad suggested I buy another (Not Bosch) and this microwave handle just broke for the second time. It's held on by a weak piece of plastic. If you google Bosch Microwave Handle Repair you'll get several hits. I will NEVER buy another Bosch Product. I have to buy a new double oven AND a new microwave, because I can't put anymore money into repairing these products.

    Bosch products are known world-wide for their excellence. I wish I could say the same for the microwave. There is a learning curve. The print on touch icons should have backlighting...very small and hard to read...or print should be larger. The door window has a black mesh making it difficult to monitor the dish or food product inside while it is on and rotating.

    We purchased this microwave to replace the broken GE Cafe series, which was twice more expensive and broke twice during 5 year use period (last problem was broken keyboard, which require to replace whole computer and estimate for that was more than new Bosch 300 MW). We really like Bosch 300 MW - it is more quiet than GE, better looking. Ventilation works better. And it is twice less expensive!

    I purchased a Bosch stove and wanted to have a consistent look and feel to the microwave as it sits over the oven. I like the capacity and easy of use. The control/operation pad is black and writing pretty small. But once I had a feel for where the start/reheat/light, etc buttons were positioned on the pad, the rest is history. A bit pricy but love the look with the stove.

    We were told installation was included...asked sales person a number of times and were told that YES, I I stall action is included. Waited 25 days to get microwave; according to our sales person that was the first installation date open. When microwave was delivered we were told that they don't install them...that would be through someone else and the cost is $120. Told them to take the microwave back to the store! Ordered from Sears and got excellent customer service!!!

    Handle broke off!

    I purchased for quality, Bosch name. Used once/day average. The handle broke off: the lower site of attachment is just plastic, it snapped off. I attempted to hold it with gorilla glue, which did not work. The repair man says it is not repairable, go purchase a new one. Very disappointing, will never purchase again
