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.

Best microwave I've ever had
from Santa Barbara, CA
So powerful! 30 second option heats leftovers perfectly. I used to have to put things on for over 4 minutes!
Happy with my new microwave
from Chicago, IL
I have only had this microwave for a little over a month but so far have been very happy with it. Yes, it was pricey but I feel it is worth it. I love the auto fan feature. The only reason for 4 stars, instead of 5, is that I just purchased the item. But I don't foresee any problems with it.
Best Microwave Ever!

I bought this a month ago and have been thoroughly pleased with all of its special functions. I especially like the automatic fan that comes on when I am cooking something like spaghetti and the pot is really boiling giving off a lot of steam.
Great look to my new kitchen

I have been using and enjoying this new microwave. It fits my newer cooking style and looks good while doing it. New home with 4 new matching appliance is a dream come true. Love the nice sound that lets me know when done

I bought this to replace an appliance lost in a fire. This is so quiet and just runs so great!. When I used it the first time the chimes that sound when done caught me off guard. I was looking around to find out what was chiming. I hope i have many years of great use with this microwave.
from Cincinnati, OH
I have to say that when we purchased this microwave, I just assumed it would be just a normal microwave; however, I am loving this thing! It is quiet and is very pretty to look at. I love all the features it has, as well.
Good microwave, just not great.
from Durham, NC
Purchased this about 2 months ago and an internal fuse already went bad on it. Also, the fan setup is terrible. Even on high it doesn't extract enough of the air under the microwave to prevent water vapor from a boiling pot from spilling over the microwave and causing a lot of condensation on the glass door and electronic panel. I'm very disappointed in that.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Sun City West, AZ
matches the gas range we purchased.....and the butter softening button...as a baker I really wanted that feature....
from Grand Junction, CO
Purchased this microwave as a replacement to a GE SpaceMaker that held on as long as it could. The performance of this oven is unbeatable. It's quiet, fast, provides a bunch of pre-set options for cooking different items. Large capacity makes it convenient to cook anything in any size container. I had some issues with he installation instructions, however, but I eventually figured it out. This is a nice addition to the Kitchen Aid dishwasher. My next purchase will be an induction heating range hands down.
