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!

Just as good as Architect I that we owned before

By 

from Arlington TX

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Microwave Oven:

We owned the Architect I series microwave/convection oven for over 12 years. It finally quit working (electronics) so we searched for a similar KitchenAid microwave since we were so happy with the first one. We found this Architect II microwave. Even though it is not the newest model, it does the best job of matching our KitchenAid oven located directly below the microwave. These KitchenAid products are excellent and we will continue to use their products due to their performance, dependability, and looks.

Impressive Combo Oven

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Microwave Oven:

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

Terrible product

By 

from Vancouver, WA, United States

Comments about KitchenAid Stainless Microwave Oven:

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.
