I had to buy this particular model out of necessity because of where it's installed in our kitchen, and we wanted to match all the other KitchenAid appliances as closely as possible when our previous KitchenAid microwave died after only six years of use. Normally this appliance would be installed over a range or cooktop with upper cabinets on both sides that are a standard 12" in depth. In that type of application any manufacturer's microwave will do the job. In my kitchen I have an exhaust hood over the cooktop so I needed a microwave that would work for an installation alongside a refrigerator with a 24" decorative wood panel that was on the left side of the microwave. All the other microwaves I tried to install had a door that would rub or get pinched on the refrigerator panel when opening the microwave door.This is the only KitchenAid model that has a door that never protrudes past the side of the microwave when opening the door, so it doesn't rub on the refrigerator panel. Now the review:Beyond the fact that it's also cheaper than the other models I was looking at, this microwave has done a very good job with the sensor settings, although you need to press numerous buttons to get there, it's very quite, has a large enough cavity to put charger plates inside, and is 1 1/2" shorter in height than our old appliance which gives us more room underneath.A word of caution about modern appliances though, make sure you buy a five year extended warranty to cover the cost of replacing the control boards that will eventually need to be replaced. They don't make appliances as durable as they used to.Note to KitchenAid: It would be helpful if you included in the specification information that the door opens flush with the side of the appliance, or better yet, make all your microwaves open flush and increase your sales options.

Good Solid Microwave
from Portland, OR
We bought this a month ago to replace the old microwave whose buttons kept sticking. The new microwave works great. Lots of options. The fan and lights work well. We just use our microwave for reheating, but it does work well for that. We have not tried the advanced features yet. But they look good.
soft sounding ready alert
from peoria, az
We really like this microwave. It does popcorn to perfection as well as other pre set controls. What we really like is the soft alert when the food is ready. Most others are so obnoxious.
Great looking and quiet
from Weston, FL
Had this for about a month to replace a Whirlpool. Looks great with nice clean lines. Heats food fast and evenly. This is so quiet you don't even realize it's on until it sings a little melody at the end of the cook cycle.
Best microwave ever
from Merrimack, NH
I ought this a few months ago and the more I use it, the more I like it. It is a microwave for over the stove with a vent/fan. If you happen to be cooking something on the stovetop and it's really steamy or smokey, the microwave senses it and come one. Also, it defrosts food without cooking it. I've never had a microwave capable of that. Seriously, it is the best microwave I've ever had
Sleek and modern
from Cleveland, OH
So far, so good. I've had this installed for a few weeks and it works well so far. Very pleased. Looking forward to upgrading my fridge and stove next.
from Santa Ana, ca
Works perfectly. And fits great with my other kitchenaid appliances
Nice compliment to our current appliances
from central Florida
This micro has been great so far. Installation was easy (except the template did not line up well necessitating re-drilling holes). This micro is very quiet when operating. Performs much better than the unit it replaced.
My favorite thing about this microwave isthstyleand quietness of it. It does a great job heating food and I would highly recommend.
Great microwave with even heating!
