    This trim kit feels like a complete afterthought. It is a more complex installation than other trim kits I have installed. Being a one piece kit makes it very challenging to get the final finished trim piece installed. The last two steps in the process took the vast majority of the time. The directions could also be clearer, and although they include a template it’s not clearly explained how it is positioned in the cabinet floor. I also really don’t understand why they don’t pre-cut the template. You have to trim the entire perimeter of the paper template which feels confusing because you wonder if you should be cutting certain sections. All of that time and guess work would be gone if they would just send it pre-cut. It’s nonsense. All of this said, it is the only black stainless trim kit available for the 2.2 cf microwave so I have no other option than to recommend this kit. The only alternative would be having a custom trim kit made. There are companies that do that. It is however expensive. I love LG. I have their entire line of appliances in my kitchen, so this is not a condemnation of LG. I would say two things to LG (if they look at market reviews): 1. The trim kit should NEVER cost more than the microwave itself. It ticks customers off. Take one moment to think about “Voice of Customer” principles. 2. If you insist on charging this much for a trim kit, it better darn well feel like the same quality that comes when you open LG Appliance boxes. This trim kit does not. **BTW, not print proof. That’s just silly. Keep a microfiber cloth close.

    Instructions

    Ok. So, we bought a big beautiful house. They had a small, aging Whirlpool microwave installed with a trim kit. We had just bought this big LG microwave, so my wife more or less insisted that we get this trim. I instantly regretted it. I mean, you can kinda tell from the photos that this thing is very shoddy. In fact, the whole thing (including the tray!) is just sheet metal with sharp edges. The instructions are terrible, and you have to cut out your own templates to install it. I measured everything very, very precisely, but this thing scratched up the microwave and my beautiful cabinets terribly when it came to "pop" it into place.The kit includes two oversized screws for each corner and the holes are dead in the corner, so even after drilling pilot holes they split the cabinet at the edges. Like I said it's just sheet metal, so none of it is straight or stays straight. Even after coaxing it as perfectly as possible, using shims, and attaching the fascade to the junky little tray, it's neveraligned. One of the four corners won't seat and it flush at the bottom of the microwave but not the top. So, after hours of painstaking work, you're left with trim that looks bad, scratches up everything, isn't straight, and drags on the door--causing damage every time you use it. It seems painfully obvious that this product is an aftermarket afterthought. Whirlpool's OEM kit, in contrast, features a very sturdy and straight tray, well-designed trim with boxed edges to avoid damage and add stregth, and an infinitely preferable appearance...plus it doesn't destroy your expensive microwave and cabinets. To top it all off, the trim costs almost as much as a microwave--though it would be pretty worthless at any price. Do youself a favor and avoid this overpriced gargage like the plague!

    Design

    We purchased a LG Microwave to replace a old convection microwave. I does not have all the features the old one had but is sufficient for basic needs. The sensor option is nice but doesn't seem to heat long enough. I usually add some time. The unit looks nice and we ordered a trim kit to make a built in look. The trim kit came with one wrong part and couldn't replace just that part without returning all of it. So we opted to make it work. Not sure if I love the quality of the microwave but so far it is sufficient for our needs.

    Ease of use

    I had to give this product five stars because it looks great, and thats what a trim kit is for! That being said, there are some things to keep in mind. I ordered both the trim kit and the LG microwave from Best Buy and both arrived within a few days. I am satisfied with both products. I used this kit with LG - NeoChef 2.0 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave with Smart Inverter and EasyClean - PrintProof Black Stainless Steel. I reviewed this product separately. The trim kit cost 279.99 before tax, which is more than the microwave cost!, which if you try to think about this logically causes angst, but I was able to rationalize this away by telling myself it was a onetime expense and it makes the kitchen look way better than the trim kit/microwave combo that was in my kitchen cabinet previously. My previous microwave quit working and had to be replaced. Now about the installation. All you need is a screwdriver, some patience, and it is a do it yourself, but have a second person handy unless you are very handy yourself. There are a few technical details I would like to share. The bottom duct piece attaches to the microwave and to the cabinet so it becomes firmly attached. This is straightforward. The side duct, and upper duct pieces are held together by three tabs which you insert and bend, and then there is double sided tape which sticks this piece to the side of the microwave (along with a single screw at the bottom). The top bracket then fits on to the upper duct. This part of the assembly is especially awkward and feels flimsy. Proper alignment is difficult. This is the part where it is good to have an assistant. It seemed like this assembly could have been one solid piece with screw fixation to the microwave instead of double sided tape???, but maybe it allows some flexibility for cabinet variations? I think they used sticky tape instead of a screw to fix the duct to the side of the cabinet for aesthetics in case the microwave was used as a countertop microwave instead of a cabinet microwave. Just guessing. If the engineers just simplified the side duct /upper duct/top bracket part of the installation (Keep it simple!) I would not even question the cost. I don't understand the anti tip bar function. At least in my cabinet there is no way for the microwave to tip. Maybe in some situations this matters. In any case, I did install it without any difficulty. The front black stainless frame then just snaps on and is held in place with screws. The finished product looks great! The frame exactly matches the microwave. I tried to include photos but because of reflections I could not get a picture that did it justice. My rating of the finished product is five stars, but unless the installation side duct/upper duct issues I described above are properly addressed, I think the price should be reduced by about a third to a half.

    I gave this review a 4 star because the product itself comes with simple instructions, was exactly as shown and was delivered by Best Buy quickly, efficiently, and without damage. The only downside was the shock of this sticker price. I found it oddly absurd that the microwave with all the electronics and glass was less expensive then the plastic and metal cover plate. Guess that's a luxury tax I just was not expecting.

    I had hoped that my old GE trim kit would work with the new LG microwave (we purchased from Best Buy!) , but it did not. Ordered the trim kit and was delivered quickly. Went right into the old cutout and worked like a charm. Perfect match for the microwave and looks great. My only issue I have is that these things are a little expensive. It is what it is.

    The other reviewers are right: this thing is a pain to install! Unfortunately we wanted this microwave and so had to use this kit. The installation process is ridiculously convoluted. Involves cutting the templates, deciphering confusing directions (often with steps missing) and having to redo multiple steps because there is zero margin for error. Have a friend double check everything and work with you and don't expect to get this done quickly.
