    Fits just right!

    I've had this installed in my kitchen now for about 2 weeks now and am very impressed with this small unit. It's quiet, has a powerful fan (2-500 cfm fans) and the lights can't be beat for illuminating the surface of your range. I have mine installed as recirculating (venting baffle included) and it eliminates smoke, grease and keeps that smoke alarm from going off if your searing a piece of meat on a high BTU burner. The compact height of the unit allows for large pots on the stove without compromising work space. As far as interior space, you can fit large bowls or glass casserole dishes with ease. Nice simple forward control panel, makes it easy to use. Highly recommend this unit. High quality and worth the money.

    Nice microwave for my space

    The cabinet over my range was too low to install a full size microwave. The size of this microwave is the same size as the previous hood. The under microwave lighting is excellent. The microwave instructions or terrible! And using the touch pad to select cook time and power levels is almost impossible. I just use the start button and keep pressing it for 30 more seconds to reach the required cook time. The cooking is great but using the touch pad is not user friendly. Also, I cannot hear the finish notification bell even if I have my ear right next to the microwave! The black stainless steel still shows fingerprints! If you need a shorter microwave to place over your range, this is a good choice. Unfortunately it isn't user friendly.

    This microwave goes way beyond my expectations! I do a lot of cooking and searing which produces a lot of smoke, and I needed great ventilation. Last night I seared a steak in a cast iron skillet at very high temperatures. This microwave literally sucked up all the smoke with no smoke escaping. The fan noise is not objectionable, considering its performance. Being super slim, I can now see my whole stove while cooking. The lighting is super bright which is perfect for me. I like to see everything I’m cooking in every detail. The night light is more like normal lighting for other microwaves. As far as looks ... very sexy indeed!

    Sleek space saver

    Most homes with microwave on top of cooktop barely leave enough space for cooking, with in-your-face standard microwave. This product alleviates the problem a bit by giving you breathing room. Looks great but the installation bolts can be a little longer longer. Template provided is good for installation which is a two-person job. As always, Grapevine, TX store is the best with great service at Pacific Kitchen and Appliance. A couple of weeks after I bought it, the price went down by over $100. All it took was a phone call to get adjustment credit. Whirlpool product is very close in appearance for $200 less.

    KitchenAid Slim Microwave

    We really like our new microwave. Our old one worked OK but the light was so dim (like a candle). This one has two LED arrays and is really bright. The slim design also help have a clear eye shot to everything we are cooking. We had to add tile to our backsplash since it was much slimmer than our original micro. We did the backsplash and carried the glass tiles up to the vent cover. Best update we have done to date.

    Excellent Microwave

    We replaced our 1200 watt LARGE over the range microwave with this one. Got it on sale for ~$550. The microwave is soooo quiet we can barely hear it when it is on. The fan is very powerful and works well with our gas range and grilling on it. We are just using the circulation ventilation but so far even grilling bacon on the gas range with the fan on, clears the air so the smoke detectors don't go off, which our old microwave never could do. BTW, our old microwave was a very expensive top of the line 1200 watt microwave but the fan was only 400 cf.

    We switched from an electric range to gas and wanted a more space than the traditional OTR microwave gave us. So we compromised on this sleek and slim Kitchen Aid. So far we haven’t missed the size of the old one. Plus it looks great! I also like that it didn’t have any of Kitchen Aid’s normal red dots or oversized handles. The fan is super powerful and we love the LED lights. We paired it with a Samsung convection oven.

    Kitchen Aid Range Hood & Microwave

    This is the first time we have been able to grill on our gas stove without having the smoke alarms go off. We really like that the range hood has 500 CFM'S and has a microwave. We originally were going to have a custom range hood put in until we saw this one. It was a great choice for us.

    I was looking for a smaller over the stove microwave/ Exhaust fan to give me more room over my stove. This whirlpool slimline microwave was perfect. It’s less than a foot high and gave considerable more valuable space about my stove. I can now use taller pots with ease. The microwave unit works great and the exhaust fan moves a ton of air and is very efficient

    I was truly debating to add a vent hood to replace the old microwave there but this is a great compromise. We love the slim profile to allow room more bigger pots and a powerful vent hood. The kids think it’s cool and high tech looking. We are happy with purchase.

    Nice looking low profile microwave. Powerful fan. Bright lights. Plenty big enough for everything I’ve needed so far. Installation manual is really bad. Would be nice at this price for the keypad to be backlit. Would be nice to have more brightness levels for light.

    Love this! I was totally against the tacky microwave above the stove look of the 90’s, however this little beauty changed my mind instantly! The quality, design and sleekness makes it blend nicely with my gorgeous kitchen instead of being an unsightly eyesore like most microwaves above the stove!

    This microwave is the low profile edition. If your recent Over-The-Range microwave has tile back splash installed up to the bottom of it, you will need to add more if you buy this one as it's a low profile, meaning about 6-8 inches shorter. An amazing microwave though.

    I have a small kitchen and just remodeled. I like the slim profile, and sleek look. Love the light under mount light for over the stove. I’m tall so I like that it’s placed higher than normal

    The older microwave was always blocking our view of the cook top. With the new microwave, I have no problem seeing how my meal is progressing. The door on our new microwave is a little wide,r but we have gotten use to the extra length.

    This microwave is compact, allowing for more open cooking area on the stove top. The unit is well built and has great construction quality. The heating and cooking performance is excellent. User friendly easy to operate.

    I was very limited to the choices I had for a microwave/hood due to limited space. This KitchenAid fits the bill. Even though it is smaller than most microwave hoods, it fits large plates. I’ve had no issues. The fan is quiet and powerful.

    I bought this for my kitchen remodel. I'm installing it under a kitchen cabinet away from the range. It fits coffee mugs, dinner plates and medium sized bowls. Who needs a giant microwave taking up a lot of space!

    We love the slim profile. The fan is powerful but there are 4 speeds. Light has two. My son thinks the self open feature is so cool. Easy to use. Still getting used to the number pad being on the inside and not outside.
