I thoroughly researched over the range, convection microwave ovens for this purchase. My builder model, that is a 2 letter brand that starts with G, started going out after only 4 years. I have never had a microwave die before, I have had to give them away to get rid of them. I checked all of the typical review sites before my purchase i.e(Consumer Reports, etc.) Not a single one had a review that could be backed up by another sites review, except for the Maytag. For the features, design, and quality, this model stood out from the crowd. The features, are more than I can list here, that I love about this unit. I wanted a convection to help reduce the amount of heat in the kitchen when I am cooking with the oven. I was very impressed with the clean lines and appearance. I installed it myself. I measured 4 or 5 times before I drilled or cut during the entire process. If you follow the instructions closely, and have an accurate level, it will mount perfectly. Make sure you have 2 people when it comes time to mount the unit itself.

THIS UNIT IS FAIRLY WELL CONSTRUCTED, AND HAS MANY OF THE TYPICAL FEATURES YOU'D COME TO EXPECT IN A MICROWAVE. IT DOES HAVE A CONVECTION FEATURE, WHICH I HEAR IS GREAT BUT HAVE NOT HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE YET.IT IS EASY TO USE, AND DOES A GOOD JOB OF HEATING FOOD. IN PURE MW MODE, IT DOES HEAT MORE AROUND THE EDGES OF THE FOOD, BUT THAT IS TYPICAL FOR ANY MW OVEN.PERHAPS ITS STANDOUT FEATURE FROM THE MANY MODELS AVAILABLE TODAY IS ITS LOOKS. THIS MODEL WOULD LOOK GREAT IN ANY KITCHEN.ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE, THE EXHAUST FAN IS RATHER LOUD. ALSO, THE INTERIOR VENTING IS VERY POOR, AS A GREAT DEAL OF CONDENSATION FORMS ON THE INTERIOR WALLS WHEN HEATING SOMETHING. PART OF THIS PROBLEM MAY HAVE TO DO WITH THE INSIDE WALLS BEING STAINLESS STEEL, BUT IT SEEMS THE MAJOR PROBLEM IS THE INTERIOR VENTILATION SYSTEM. AND SINCE ITS A DESIGN FLAW, LOCAL REPAIRMEN DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIX IT.IF YOU DON'T MIND WIPING DOWN THE INTERIOR EVERY TIME YOU USE IT, THEN I WOULD RECOMMEND IT, SINCE EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT IT IS GOOD. OTHERWISE, CONSIDER BUYING SOMETHING ELSE...

Not so great
By Frustrated cook

Comments about Maytag White 1.8 CuFt Microwave/Range Hood:
I have tried to read the display panel, I have tried to read the instructions manual, I have even called to get a rep to walk me through some of the functions. I have gotten no useful instructions from anything I've tried and the rep was actually snotty to me. I am actually hating the convection part and no one I know that has one even uses it. It is not user friendly and I won't buy this brand ever again!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

OTR Microwave Review
By Mel the Maddog
from Burlington, Iowa
We purchased this microwave to replace a defective one and are very pleased with our choice. It is a very functional device. Would recommend to friends.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Newport News, VA
I purchased my home in Jun 2014. It had all brand new Maytag appliances. The microwave started giving me problems after the first year. When i go to use it i have to wait upwards of 2 minutes for the light to click on. Then i am able to push in the time and it starts working. Also when i open the door while working the microwave does not shutoff. I would not recommend this product to anyone.
Very bad experience!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
from Lawrenceville, GA
Was very happy with Glide tray, after 6 months start getting problems with starting with work microwave itself. After 10 months I have a clock with light and hood, microwave is not working at all. Done everything from troubleshooting suggestions- nothing worked. How can you rate this product? From excellent (good idea with the tray) to poor, when this tray is not working!
disappointed in this microwave
By Bear Snack
from Springfield, TN
We've been pleased with the features of this microwave, but the magnetron failed just 14 months after we purchased it. Yes, the magnetron is covered by a 10 warranty, but when we pay for a service call and labor from an authorized repair shop, we spend as much as the original unit cost. Seriously!
I love this convection microwave
from Oak Harbor WA
This is a great size big enough for a lasagna pan. You can turn off rotation so a big pan fits. It great when you don't want to heat up the the big oven. Many good features. I couldn't live without it.
from Grand Prairie Tx
Would love it except to door disintegrated for no apparent reason. The plastic just started cracking until about a 15" section fell off the bottom.

Maytag Model MMV5208-WS Microwave Oven
from Mesa, AZ
I have had my microwave for 5 years now and it meets my expectations of Maytag products. The only difficulty that I have is finding a local vendor in the Mesa, AZ area to find replacement filters.
Easy to Use
from Winona, MN
Maytag appliances are my first choice. My father was a lonely Maytag repairman, so I grew up with Maytags in my home. When I bought this microwave I already knew I would find satisfaction. It is easy to use--I haven't even read the manual. I like the wideglide tray and the space inside. It looks nice with my other white appliances.
