After moving into my first home, I was in need of a new microwave. I absolutely hate countertop clutter, so that style was out. I really liked the look of the pull down door and I also wanted the convection option. After a long delay to rebuild the cabinet in the kitchen, I had it installed about a month ago, and I can say is WOW. Great microwave capability, onscreen display and controls are easy to understand. The "smart convection" makes using the convection oven so simple. Baked apples, frozen pizza, chicken cutlets, you name it, comes out great and adjusts automatically for the "standard" oven times and temps on packaging. Best option is the crisper with the pan. No longer do you have to throw out left over chicken wings! Now just put on the crisper option, the microwave heats from the inside and the crisper makes the skin not taste like rubber! Cleaning is easy and it looks great. Matches the other stainless appliances and joins the other KitchenAid appliances (6qt mixer and dishwasher) that are also new in my kitchen. Great product. Highly recommend.

Bought this about 9 months ago as part of our total kitchen remodeling. Annoying "feature" is that the fan stays ON if you let the timer cycle to complete even if it is a very short (say 10 second) operation. However, manually cancelling the warming operation stops the fan! Apparently it is a design feature, but from an engineering standpoint a very lousy one! Extremely annoying.

Also, control panel is very poorly designed. Writings are too small and buttons too close together while there is plenty of blank space that could have been used for much better layout.

Will not buy another one of these again, even the newer models!

                    First micro/oven combo I've purchased. Very much like the oven feature for small baked goods. Keypad has to be the best I've used. Logical, not too many steps to start cooking. Nice looking

                                            This is the third replacement we have received. The first one failed completely in three days. The second one would not complete a convection program. It had to be reset two or three times before it would complete the cycle. This third one freezes with an error message and cannot be restarted until we turn of the circuit and turn it back on.

                                                        We purchased this built-in microwave to replace our original built-in microwave when our home was built. We wanted to also match our new built-in microwave to a built-in oven and KitchenAid came to the rescue with this great looking stainless steel and feature rich built-in microwave. We purchased it after looking at it online and were worried the unit would not be what we expected, but we were overjoyed when it arrived and was installed. It fits well, looks great and we are still learning all of the great features. We have received many comments from friends asking if we did a kitchen make-over since this built-in looks so nice.

                                                        I did not realize when I purchased this combo that the microwave was only 900 watts as opposed to my previous GE that was 1200 I believe. Why would they even consider lower power? I have to add at least another 30 sec or more to make up for that
