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.

For functionality, the microwave that has all the features that I would expect on a unit at this price point. The only very significant issue is that the exhaust fan noise level is excessive even on low (only gets worse at high speeds). I always buy dishwashers with close attention to the decibel level of the unit - I guess next time I will have to do the same with the microwave.

This was the last of four matching KitchenAid appliances that I purchased and installed. Love it!!! It is big, and very well made. I have used most of the auto and quick features, and they have worked flawlessly. Takes a lot of the guess work out of cooking the most common things we use a microwave for, and having to check to see if something is done and add time. I like the option of turning off the turntable, the 3 speed fan, the energy saving display (who needs another clock on all the time directly over the range one anyway?) etc. I could go on, but I am I think it is clear that I love this microwave. And it looks great!!!
