The kitchenaid microwave far exceeds any microwave I have ever owned. There are features on this that I haven't even discovered yet. Most of the cooking features are self explainatory and will walk you through them. There is definately no lack of cooking power. Overall, I will give this microwave a 9 out of 10, only due to the fact that it does not have a 30 second express button. Thanks for a great quality microwave. Mark

This microwave cooks very well. The convection feature also works very well and I am pleased with that. However, these "pros" are overshadowed by the "cons"....the wording on the display panel is pretty small. I didn't realize it until I found myself having to squint to read it. If you are at the stage where you are just beginning to need "cheaters" to read, this is not the oven for you. The fan that comes on during the convection feature is loud. Very loud. I had it replaced, twice, and the technician acknowledged that the design is poor. I saw it myself while he was fixing it - it looked like my sister's Easy Bake Oven when we were kids, with the belt drive mechanism that ran the fan. Surprised this ever passed a quality inspection of any sort. I would expect that level of quality if this was a Wal-mart special, not for a name brand like Kitchenaid. If I had to do over, I wouldn't buy this product. I had a GE before this that had similar features but was clearly better engineered. I won't be a repeat customer. Oh yeah, I checked the reviews on similar microwave/convection in the Whirlpool brand (same family/company), and there is no difference.

Looks good but broke after less than 1 year
from Bennett, CO
Purchased this to match several other appliance of same design. Looks nice but after only 8 months of use the light switch and door switch broke making the microwave useless. It seems the components were not designed to handle the heat from the oven range it sits over. Which seems silly considering it's an over the range microwave. If I had to do it over again I would do a hood over the stove and get a counter top microwave. This model also has the convection cooking feature - haven't used it once. Save your money, you don't need it. This microwave was not worth the money.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this product and it has been easy to use without any complications.

Takes significantly longer to reheat and cook than my old KitchenAid microwave. It is also very noisy compared to any microwave I have ever used.

I purchased an entire Architect Series II kitchen from Kitchenaid. I love the looks of the appliances but the microwave and the range have annoyingly loud fans. I would have selected another product if I had know. I purchased these to replace my 15 year old Kitchenaid appliances, which served me well and were quiet, so I never suspected this would be a problem from Kitchenaid.
Stainless interior not ease to keep clean
By Lane Klein

I give this only 4 stars as the control panel is difficult to read, it has no back lighting and the lettering is entirely too small for easy and prompt operation. A big disappointment after putting forth so much effort to purchase the "right" machine.
My wife's new microwave
from Norcross, GA, United States
I bought this microwave to replace an older KitchenAid unit that was about 7 years old. Got a great price on this and it was installed within 2 days. Love the microwave. You can cook food in many more ways than the old one. Haven't tried too many things, but used it for baked potatoes twice and it works great. Looking forward to cooking something more complicated in the future.
nice, but could be better
from Oakland Charter Township, MI, United States
I replaced all my kitchen appliances last July, 2014 with Kitchenaid. Very pleased with all but the microwave. There is not quick button of 30 or 60 seconds. I don't need popcorn or individual food items. I can figure out there time requirements by myself. It is so annoying after heating an item and the beep goes off, it doesn't stop beeping. It will continue to beep until you drop what you're doing and take it out. Even then once the door is open it still beeps until you manually turn it off. Why can't it stop on it's own. Plus, often when making dinner, I will prepare the veggies and get ready to steam in the micro. I can put them inside but if a certain amount of time passes after I last opened the door and before I hit the on button it will not work until I reopen the door and start over. All these extra unnecessary steps that I never had to do.

I love it that my new microwave is larger than my old model. It cooks quickly and I haven't had any issues over the last month of use.
