I really like the microwave overall. The only thing that has disappointed me is that the plastic on the number panel where you push the buttons is already starting to peel and bubble and we have only had the microwave a month!

We had a Kitchen Aid microwave for 15 years and it worked wonderfully. We just replaced it with the new model and are very disappointed. The controls are much different then the previous one and make no sense. We're still struggling to figure out the power level, defrost and others. There is not a sensible procedure. Why change your format? Another big problem was the in-line plug. It's not a appliance design so it stuck out 2" taking up valuable cabinet depth. No excuse as far as a design. That is totally ridiculous that you would provide that type of plug! We also bought the trim kit and to put it bluntly it was a piece of junk. Didn't fit and cheaply made. We ended up purchasing one from Micro-Trim. Much better quality and design and was customized for the same price as the KA piece of junk. Extremely disappointed in the whole experience.

        we purchased this microwave about a month ago and we are very pleased with it. Very quiet operation, we didn't realize that our old microwave wasn't heating properly.

              Haven't had a microwave for 8 years and I forgot how useful it was; especially during my kitchen remodel. It was nice to have something to each besides camp food! We were without a STOVE FOR 2 1/2 months. This is just one of three Kitchen Aids that I purchased. Refrigerator next!

                          We bought this microwave and convection oven as replacements approx 2 months ago. The more powerful microwave has great features and pre-programmed controls. The power is great for quick preparation while controlling power for items that need less time or defrosting. Overall this microwave is an excellent choice. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a new and upgraded unit. It made a great addition to our kitchen appliances.

                                This is a replacement of previous same model. Previous one broke within a year. Customer service replaced with same model. So keeping fingers crossed for this one.

                                      It's a nice microwave. There are some small annoyances, but in large, it does what it's supposed to.

                                            Bought this 9 months ago for our newly built home. We keep it in our pantry because we do not often use the microwave and wanted a smaller sized unit. This fits the bill. Has worked great anytime we have used it. No complaints to date!
