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.

from ogallala ne
This a great microwave. Not as many features as the higher end models, but I don't bake in this anyway. Plays a tune when the timer is up. Matches the rest of my kitchenaid appliances. They are soooooo pretty.
Had for 2 months and happy with it.
Just installed went to use, and found out turn table is unstable tips. Never had a chance to turn to the machine on. Waited 3 weeks for delivery. Replaced 2 yr old whirlpool microwave because of broken door and latches.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Everything expected and more

My old Kitchen aid died
from South Salem, NY
The older model was so much better in many ways. I replaced the prior generation kitchen aid microwave, I purchased it 6 years ago and it died. it was a much better machine in many ways
from Chatham, NJ
This microwave is high quality. It cooks the food much faster than my prior microwave and looks very high end. The fan is a bit noisy over the cook top but otherwise it's a 5 star machine.
