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...

Maytag Model MMV5208-WS Microwave Oven
from Mesa, AZ
Comments about Maytag White 1.8 CuFt Microwave/Range Hood:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

Poor quality appliances
By Not happy with Maytag
All of my Maytag kitchen appliances purchased in 2012 have something wrong with them except the range. My dishwasher has quit working, the microwave clock does not work and the door is crooked, and the fridge drawers have fallen apart. Very poor quality.
Rating My Over-The-Range Microwave
By Happy Customer
from Gillett, WI
I am very satisfied with this microwave. It combines style with cooking ease. I love the variable speed exhaust fan, and the dual light setting (it serves double-duty as a night light in my kitchen!) It's attractive design blends well with my décor. In fact, I have it mounted over a 1953 GE range and they get along just fine. I am very pleased with this purchase, and would definitely purchase another Maytag product.

Bought this microwave less than two years ago and having problems already. Actually this has been happening for quite some time. I started noticing the control panel where it shows the time, etc would not always light up. I thought it was an energy saver possibly. I called Maytag and she said my control panel is going out and they will not cover it. The part alone is $160 and the only thing they offered was a year maintenance agreement for $289!!!! Are you kidding me??? Not happy consumer at all. If you buy this brand make sure you purchase an extended warranty from the beginning.

Love all the features. Cooks bacon perfectly. Haven't burnt anything in it since we got it.

I am not very happy with my microwave.I bought it 3 months ago and I have already had to have it repaired and they did a great job but it is the point.I am also not very happy with how well it works but I paid for it and will just have to deal with it.
from Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Installed it 2 months ago and love it. Love the tray movement, which moves a rectangular dish inside the micro while it is heating (much better than the old rotary turntables). Great meat thawing cycle, does not cook the meat, just thaws it. Would like a little brighter light underneath, pointing down at the rangetop. But we are very happy with it.
