Hi. We remodeled her kitchen and I decided to purchase this microwave oven. I love the space inside so roomie, but I'm a little disappointed on what I would call missing features. I think that it would've been wonderful to see options on cooking different things, Insteqd of only using this for the reheat or defrost options. I have tried to connect potatoes before, but I was a little disappointed as they still tasted like they were cooked in the microwave. Nonetheless, the defrost cycle works perfectly when I'm trying to defrost fish or meat without it cooking in the oven. I am still very happy with this purchase.

When I moved into our new home, I was excited to see such a flashy microwave with so many features. It is installed in our cabinets over the counter top, so it didn't take us long to realize that the pull down door was very difficult to use, especially for my children. You have to be over 5'6" to be able to get things in and out of it without using a stool.
I noticed when cooking items, that it takes considerably more time than much cheaper models that we had owned in previous homes. We found the sensor cooking to not work well either.
The fan is annoyingly loud when running, but I could live with that. The problem is that when the "completed cooking" alarm goes off, the fan keeps going until you open the door. If you aren't right by the microwave when it beeps, it's easy to miss it and think that the microwave is still running because of the loud fan that keeps on going.
I found the convection oven and crisper features pretty useless in a kitchen where we already have an oven and stove top. I guess it would be useful to have if you only had this one appliance in a camper or something, but for real life usage in a real kitchen, very sub par.

        Haven't tried using it as a convection oven yet, but the microwave is just perfect. Big size and can fit large bowls in it.

              Overall a good product

                  Best Uses

                    I bought this device for the convection qualities, which I've yet to try. As a 900W microwave it cooks fine, but more slowly than a 1200W so be prepared. Also the door folding down is a little awkward and makes reaching inside difficulty.

                    The features and automatic options are adequate. I'm a big fan of using "reheat" and there are a lot of reheat options, which work "ok." I've yet to have anything reheat perfectly.

                    ATTENTION! This is a 220V device and will require special wiring.

                              Using the oven on the convection option is confusing. If you preheat the oven with the food inside, when the oven is done preheating, it prompts you to put the food in. If you don't open and shut the door, the oven will turn off. It would be nice if it did not do that (like the regular oven), so you could set it, put the food in, and walk away. A nice feature would be to have a countdown during preheat that tells you how long until the oven will be heated.

                                    no issues so far. The one odd thing is the fan that does not turn off when the cook time is complete.

                                          I recently purchased new kitchen Aide appliances, the French Door Refrigerator,5 Element Induction Cook top,Convection Built-in Microwave Oven and the Convection Single Wall Oven. I am so thrilled with all of the appliances! My very favorite is the Induction Cook top, it is amazing! I cannot say enough about it! It heats up and cools down just like cooking on a gas stove. Food does not burn on it and the clean up is so COOL! Just wipe it off and dry. NO SCRUBBING! Kitchen Aide really is tops in my book!

                                                      When in the store I thought the interior of this unit looked small, but it is actually larger than my previous micro/convection which had plenty of space. Nice surprise was the Easy Convert Convesction Control, enter the standard temperature and time from a receipe and the oven automatically makes the adjustments. Also came with some unexpected accessories, a large steaming dish, crisping tray, and oven rack. Like that even when using the convection, the lazy susan still rotates to help foods cook evenly. Very happy after a month of use.
