      Solid build, elegant display, QUIET operation!

      Rating is based on the unit being only one day old and I haven't yet 'tested' all of the neat features KitchenAid has promised in this Microwave/Convection oven combo unit. I purchased this Over the Range (OTR) microwave as a replacement to a high-end Electrolux OTR. I installed the unit myself and the installation was straightforward with clear instructions (note: I've installed many OTR's, if you haven't installed one before, I suggest having it done by a pro). The digital display is super elegant - way cleaner text on the display than most appliances. The killer thing about this microwave is how quiet it is. The door closes quietly (even when the kids 'slam' the door like kids can be known to do), the microwave cooking operation is SUPER quiet, and the exhaust fan (mine is set up to be vented internally) is significantly quieter than my old unit. This unit has a six speed fan, and on high it is about 50% quieter than the old unit on high. The halogen cook-top lights are bright, centered both front-to-back and left-to-right which effectively illuminates the entire cook-top with no shadows like my old unit (it had the light very near to the front of the cook-top casting shadows to pots on the rear burners). After installing I did the 'amount of time to boil a cup of water' and it performed fantastically - about two and a half minutes. I am looking forward to testing out the Popcorn setting. I think I read somewhere before purchasing (maybe KitchenAid website?) that it monitors the popping sound to determine when the popcorn is done (amazing technology if that's actually the case - and exactly what the micro-popcorn package instructions tell you to do). A few other features I'm looking forward to using are the convection oven (cooks like a regular oven, so one more oven with additional space for prepping holiday meals!) and the Steamer function (which will hopefully allow me to free up some cabinet space by replacing my stand-alone steamer). Overall, this seems like a really solidly built unit, with quiet operation, and lots of nifty cooking solutions.

      I purchased this microwave solely based on it being the only model that I could find that opened and closed quietly. The sound of my family slamming the microwave door drove me crazy so when my Kenmore Elite started to run when the door was open and not run when it closed I jumped at the chance to try and find a quiet microwave. My search consisted of me opening and closing the door of every unit on display. This KitchenAid was the clear winner. I paid for a convection element that I may never use just for the almost slam-proof door. This oven looks very nice in my kitchen and it is so quiet! I can hardly tell that it’s running. Had no idea that my former unit was so loud. The exhaust fan is loud however. I only have 2 complaints: you can’t pause to check your food then resume with the remaining time. You have to press cancel then start over. And I don’t think you can turn off the reminder sound. It’s either all sound off or on. The reminder beep is annoying. Oh, one more con is that if you put something in the microwave and don’t start it right away you have to open and close the door again to turn it on. I don’t know how long the lag is, I’ve never timed it but it’s annoying that I can’t put a bowl of soup in the oven, let it sit for a few minutes while preparing other stuff then start the soup without the thing making me open and close the door. Overall I do like this microwave. When my fridge goes I’m going to buy a KitchenAid to match.

      It was with some hesitation that I spent as much as this microwave costs but my history with KitchenAid has been solid. (I have several other appliances and small appliances from KA.) This was my first KA microwave and, with my gas range, I needed a 400 CFM exhaust fan so this was distinctly ahead of the other brands/ offerings. The true bonus lies in the convection oven features. The programming is great with a manual option to allow for baking/ roasting anything that will fit as well as my KA gas range does without heating the entire kitchen. The ventilation is quiet and powerful unlike my past GE profile or LG over the range models. The microwave itself is very capable and powerful. I prefer my vegetables only barely steamed or cooked and the steamer sensor function results in a perfect product for cauliflower and broccoli. I have successfully experimented with steaming eggs and am confident that this can be perfected in time. I would recommend this to anyone in any situation. There is a bit more stainless around the face of the unit due to the door closure lipping-over the edge a bit which gives this a nice, overall clean look - not to mention the bright and wonderful stainless interior.

      Nice, but damaged

      Will see how it holds up. This micro replaced a Whirpool Gold version of the same unit that was problematic. We went with this one because installation was exactly the same. The Kitchenaid is probably 50% more quiet than the Whirlpool and I like that it has the stainless interior instead of the supposedly non-stick interior of the Whirlpool. Unfortunately, the unit was damaged and had a dent at the bottom corner, which also pushed up the casing a bit at the upper corner. I managed to not notice this until after the unit was installed or I probably would have exchanged it. It's disappointing, but not sure it is worth the hassle to remove the unit again and try to get fixed or exchange. The packaging seemed fine, so maybe happened before shipping? Maybe change the casing if it comes out again for another reason. One thing I find odd is that the KA has a larger turntable than the Whirlpool, but the exact same convention rack. In the Whirlpool, the rack fit in the turntable and didn't move around. In the KA, it slides all over the place because it doesn't fit. Trying to find out if it is even the right one. Seems strange. Will update as necessary, but seems good so far.

      When we began searching for a replacement microwave, I had only a few requirements on the list (after all it's something we've used for years to heat up stuff quickly). I wasn't looking for one that was also a convection oven. It has been very easy to pick-up on how to use it. My wife's first day she prepared a turkey breast using the convection feature (something I was skeptical about) and it was great. Frozen pizzas now go in here and are done faster than in either of our other (2) ovens. Cleans up very easily. We have ours vented through ducting outdoors and it works much better & quieter than our previous microwave. The tone that plays when it's done is a little on the quiet side (if that's a concern for some), although I find it more pleasant than the beeping our old one did. I can't speak to the long term reliability of this unit (only had it a few weeks). So, far it seems much more substantial in build quality than the previous one we had. My wife has been very happy with it. She says that the oven is more intuitive than our previous one. I initially was skeptical about purchasing something this feature rich (figured most of it wasn't necessary) but, after a few weeks of use.. it would be hard to go back to our old unit. Pleasantly surprised.

      Cheap Plastic crumbling after 2 years BEWARE.

      Functionally and aesthetically, this is a high end microwave/oven combo. Unfortunately the materials used in the product do not hold up over time. I just completed a visit from a repair tech who found several parts on my unit had degraded and the plastic was crumbling. The surround for the choke broke when removed, the bracket that holds the door handle had crumbled where fasteners hold the handle on, the fastener points where the glass hold-down tabs screw in were all broken, and the thin plastic piece that cushions the metal door handle against the front glass fell apart in my hands. This part is 15$ for a 1 inch piece of millimeter thick plastic - and you need 2. In order to replace everything that is broken I'd basically need a new door, which is over 200$. I may have gotten a bad batch of plastic or something, but Whirlpool was not interested in supporting any kind of warranty claim, as I am outside of the first year now. KitchenAid is apparently no longer a high-end appliance brand when it comes to materials. I now regret buying all matching appliances for the house because it seems I'm stuck with them for the duration.

      Great Microwave fantastic exhaust fan & convection

      This is a great combo convection microwave oven that has an exhaust fan that can't be beat. It is sturdy (our old LG literally fell apart after five years) that cost about the same and didn't even have the convection oven or an exhaust fan half as strong. The only complaint I have is its a little bigger than most (sticks out a bit, not a problem, and actually covers the stove better with the exhaust fan -- but did require me to enlarge the hole in the cabinets to install) and the exhaust fan on/off switch is not an on/off switch. It is a cycle thru fan settings 6,5,4,3,2,1,off button. Would be perfect if there was an on/of button and a speed setting button. This microwave is great because like other high end units it has a sensor cook/reheat that actually monitors how the cooking is going. And better yet, this sensor actually works (not like the old LG version). Convection oven works great especially if you are using your other ovens for a large meal and need to cook something else like bread or biscuits. It's large enough for a roast or even a turkey if you don't have an oven or don't have a double oven.

      Failed In 3 Months

      Bought this KitchenAid Microwave for Christmas for my wife and in 3 months it stopped working. It started to display an open/close door error. We would open and close the door repeatedly and still the error. The first repair man came out and replaced the latch in the door. It worked for about one day and then the same error again. The latest error is that the display goes haywire and lights up everything on the display panel like it has a problem with the motherboard or something (see picture). We are now onto our second repair. When we call KitchenAid to report the problem they refuse to replace the microwave and instead try to push a $235 extended warranty plan. This is the first KitchenAid appliance we have had, would not recommend them and will not be buying anymore KitchenAid products!
