It works as advertised. My only issue is with the latches on the door. When I close the door it sounds like I am slamming the door. It does not closes softly. To me it feels like a feature found on cheap microwaves, and not on a Kitchenaid which costs 3 times more than an average microwave in the market.

        We bought this microwave when we remodeled our kitchen last month. It is extremely quiet when running, and offers many convenient features.

              We bought this microwave in conjunction with a KitchenAid convection oven. We mounted it above our oven, with the trim kit option. It has a very sharp built-in look and we are very pleased. The microwave function is simple. We previously owned a GE and this oven is much quieter.

                    Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series White Countertop or Built-In Microwave:

                    Have had this unit for 18 months and was installed when we built the house. Experiencing same problem with opening mechanism that others have identified. Cheap plastic part on the inside broke which prevents you from opening the door while the microwave continues to run. Very disappointed in the quality and the fact the unit doesn't even last two years. My first experience with KitchenAid and probably my last - especially if you can't get replacement parts which others have indicated is a problem.

                                Comments about KitchenAid Architect Series White Countertop or Built-In Microwave:

                                I've had this microwave for over 16 months. Prior to today, I had no major issues with the microwave; on the contrary to now, I quite liked it, it was pretty and matched all my other Kitchenaid appliances. The door would occasionally stick when I pushed the button, but it didn't bother me that much.

                                Let's fast forward to this morning. I put a bowl of butter in the microwave and set it for 15 seconds. I walk away. 5 seconds later, I hear a CRACKLING sound and run over to the microwave to turn it off. It was CRACKLING and SPARKING. Needless to say, I was pretty freaked out. I wait awhile, thinking maybe it was some freak accident, and try it again. This time I stand there and watch as it does it again.

                                Unfortunately, my warranty is up, so I'm out of luck and will be getting a new microwave. I WILL NOT be getting another Kitchenaid though.

                                      Have now had this microwave for 2 ½ months. It is a nice-looking appliance (I have the trim kit so that it looks built-in) and is an easy-to-clean finish. It is quite large, the light inside is very good, and the turntable works well. It heats faster than my previous GE Profile, though, I do miss the fact that I could press any button from 1 through 5 and get that many minutes without pressing additional buttons previously. The (Cooktime, 1, 4, 5, 0, Start) areas on the touchpad are already beginning to show wear, though, so don't know how that will work out. Really don't understand why this microwave needs to beep five times even though I've opened the door and removed whatever is heated already!

                                            This microwave is about 17 months old and the door latch no longer functions properly. The microwave stays on after it is done cooking. Have to hold the door down to engage the latch to shut it off. Apparently can't buy parts for it. I will not be buying kitchenaid appliances again.

                                                  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.
