The only problem is the loud noise the door makes when opened and closed. Most noticeable. Wish there was a dampner of sorts to mask the sound. Other than that, this is the third KitchenAid microwave I have had over the years. It is powerful and does the job well. I am limited by built-in space in the kitchen and this size unit fits perfectly.

We really needed a 24" microwave to fit into our cabinet. This is the best looking one we could find. It is expensive so we expected it to be less noisy and smoother to operate. But it fell short of that. It feels clunky when you close it, makes noise when you operate it. There is a thin cover on the control panel which is already showing bubbles trapped and I expect it to come off in a month or so.

Overall no complaints on cooking performance as we don't really cook much in microwave. We just use it to heat leftovers.

Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II 1.6 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Microwave:

I had the old model of this KitchenAid appliance and I loved it! It finally died so I replaced it with the new model. It's terrible! Cheap construction, noisy and over priced! I am very disappointed and plan on returning it.

      Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II 1.6 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Microwave:

      It's used for everyday microwave activities replacing a functional but much lower power unit.

      It's very simple to use and works as expected. It's very quiet to the point where you often don't know it's on which is wonderful.

      Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series II 1.6 Cu. Ft. Stainless Steel Microwave:

      This is the second time we purchased this model. If this one lasts another 8 plus years it will be worth it.

      This new one is about another two inches deeper inside than the previous model. The total depth is also 2" deeper so allow for a bigger hole or box to put it in.

      Prompt delivery. These guys are great to deal with.
