Purchased with trim kit to replace an aging convection microwave (rarely used the convection so decided on a more powerful microwave only solution). The oven is extremely fast, and the sensor cooking modes work well. Bacon comes out just right; reheating left overs are nice and hot. Pop corn which was always a challenge in our previous unit was easy to do even in a brown paper bag.

Two surprises with this unit first was, it is stainless on the outside (ie the reason for the increased expense); and white on the inside...I would have preferred it be the other way around since the built in mode one sees none of the stainless case, but opening up shows bright white.

The other surprise was a plastic door window which is very common now that I see other competitive units. The plastic window reflections looks wavy at an angle which is how we noticed it. Our old unit was glass and was nice and flat.

We had the KitchenAid microwave when we lived in Florida. It was great and we were very pleased with the quality. We sold our house in Florida and were so pleased with the microwave we replaced the one in the new home with the KitchenAid.What a difference several years made. After the first year, (warranty was over) we had trouble with the door. We would close it and we would have to open and close it again to get the light off. The microwave would not work unless we did that.We have no kids at home and are not rough on out appliances. We love to cook and found this to be good when we needed it. Except for the door problem.[...]

          This was my first order with ABT, The microwave came damaged, to no fault of ABT, that I could determine, BUT ABT's customer service upon revceivng the damaged good was exceptional! Sent a new one out immediately and picked up the damaged one from my door.

          Will use them again - often you dont know about a company utill you have a problem, I did and their response was 5 star

                        Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II Countertop Stainless Steel Microwave Oven:

                        I was looking specifically to buy a KitchenAid microwave with a trim kit. I had originally purchased a GE microwave but the stainless steel didn't match our new KitchenAid refrigerator. The two appliances are right next to each other. ABT offered this microwave for $100 less than it would have cost locally. Delivery was quick and the microwave & trim kit arrived in the same box well packaged and in good condition. Very pleased.

                        PROS: Easy to clean with a wet sponge and microfiber cloth.

                        CONS: At first glance, I didn't see buttons for items like "popcorn" or "beverage" that my old microwave had. However, I found them hidden under general buttons like "custom cook." An extra step, but not really a big deal.
