    Replacement for 15 year old Sony

    The 4 stars is because my first unit lasted 1 week, then shorted out while not in use. The second unit has been working without any problems for 6 weeks, hopefully for a few more years. The only other issue I experienced it that it was a much tighter fit than my previous unit. I learned to lubricate the sides of the cabinets to facilitate mounting the unit. Now, I am delighted with the unit's operation. The steam sensor had prevented boil overs, and over cooking dinner plates with different ingredients. The popcorn button successfully cooks a serving from bulk popcorn in a silicone popper. The stove light is very bright, and the fan has three settings. There is a option to externally vent the fan, if your kitchen has a vent. There is a wire rack for heating multiple dishes, and the sensor can tell how many plates are in the oven. The vegetable button will toggle frozen, fresh and number of cups, and the potato button cooks potatoes much better than any unit I have used. One last comment, although 2 people are recommended for installation, I had no trouble mounting the unit by myself, a 50+ woman. I can recommend the Kitchenaid microwave as a reasonably priced over the stove unit for a family or singles.

    Very quiet!

    This microwave is noticeably quieter than the premium model it replaced. It has a strange non stainless finish inside, I don’t know how it will hold up. Owners guide is basically useless, talks about “two level cooking” but doesn’t explain what they mean etc, no guides for sensor cooking etc. Keypad is backwards from several popular models, the start button is close to the door, while the cancel is at the outer edge (not normal for right handlers who rest hand against edge while thumbing buttons) and other slightly wonky design decisions. Light on bottom is not LED so you will be regularly replacing bulbs and the light timer is pointless, can’t schedule it as a night light. Handle is huge and easy to grasp but design only matches other appliances of same make, not generic. You can’t customize the loudness of the timer or the brightness of the display. Installation was standard but read first, the support is at the very bottom and this is a large unit, had to cut inches from my backsplash tile to mount it, not happy about that. Fan is powerful and has many settings including automatic on if too much heat from stove, it’ll scare you first time is goes to high by itself!

    DO NOT BUY-stopped working, warranty service awful

    Well, I originally loved this microwave. Then the door stopped functioning correctly and the microwave was having issues due to the door not latching correctly. The microwave is still under warranty, so I contacted customer service, sent them what they needed, and over a week later no one got back to me. Then my microwave stopped working completely. So I again contacted customer service. Now I have no microwave. They can't get service out for a week. So, I wait the week. Then, the service guy tells me he needs to order parts, so it will be another week until then. However, he said a fuse went out, I don't think this is the issue, because the door would work and then not work... fuses don't go in and out. So, I have a feeling he will come next week and have to come out YET AGAIN. It's ridiculous. when this is over with, I will not have had a correctly functioning microwave for a month. DO NOT BUY -- or - Buy the geek squad protection so you can bring it to Best Buy to return it when it goes out.

    Nice but BIG

    OccasionalReviewer

    I installed this KitchenAid microwave about 4 months ago and have been happy with it so far. It is very quiet, which was important to me. We don't cook with it, but the everyday things like food re-heat, butter soften, bake potato, cook bacon, all work very well with a little trial and error. I installed the unit myself, instructions not the best, and the mounting template was only good for getting measurements, because the edge of the template did not coincide with the printed measurements, so you could not just tape it up and go. A good chance I was the problem, but no big issues, just took some time. The unit is much larger than I expected, this is the 1st over-the-range unit I have owned. We almost took it back, glad we didn't. On sale for under four hundred dollars it was a great deal.

    Far Surpasses My Expectations

    Replaced a 13 year old Panasonic microwave. Got this KitchenAid on sale after reading some really good reviews on line. The sale price seemed too good to pass up. Now that I've used it a few weeks, I am so happy I would even be willing to pay the suggested retail price from KitchenAid. The sensor buttons are amazing... I soften and melt butter, soften a half gallon of hard frozen ice cream to the perfect consistency, heat pizza, pop popcorn, bake potatoes, cook rice and everything has turned out like fresh oven-baked. It is super-quiet since most things I cook I do not use the fan. The fan is quieter than my last microwave. The only thing I would change is the light under the microwave to light up the oven underneath. It should be at the front of the underside, not at the back. Doesn't really light up my stove-top. I'd re-buy this item with no regrets!

    I've had the microwave 3-4weeks now. I have nothing but positive things to say. Install was a breeze, instructions were clear and the included templates made everything extremely easy. Now how does she cook? So far to perfection. This replaced a 15-20yr old unit, which was rather unpredictable in its cooking, so it's not a fair comparison. We've used the microwave for daily items ranging from malt-o-meal to reheating steak filet's. It's done everything we've asked of it without any issue what so ever. Oh the Icecream mode that people speak of. It actually works...even with milk free icecream. (hey you never know, those silly almonds could complicate things). This silly microwave has all sorts of special modes and features that I've played with some. The sensor mode uses pure magic and for me has been flawless. I'm thrilled with this microwave.

    Excellent microwave!

    This is an excellent microwave and I recommend it if you can get it on sale like I did. Personally, I feel it is overpriced at it's regular price. As with many microwaves, you will find that this model is the exact same as several other brands (Maytag, Whirlpool, etc.) all made by the same manufacturer, so you may find another brand much cheaper for basically the same microwave. The difference in price is the smart technology and features. As you increase smart technology and features, the price goes up. A cheaper microwave may burn your popcorn when using the popcorn setting. This microwave makes it perfectly with no burning. There are a few kernels left, but I would rather have a few left and nothing burnt. As far as longevity, time will tell. I've owned it for three months now. So far, I would recommend to a friend with no hesitation.

    Great microwave

    I bought this to replace a over-the-range microwave in our new condo that was not working. Taking the old unit out and preparing the site for the new unit was straight forward with the templates provided. Hanging it was also pretty simple. The unit looks great and functions well. It is a bit taller than the previous unit so it makes the range a bit harder to see at my height (6'4"). That is no fault of the unit, I should have plotted out the dimensions before buying. People have been asking what the inside looks like so I took a picture. It is a specked metallic grey.
