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.

Just purchased and installed a week ago and love it. It is very quiet while running and can forget that it is on if in the other room. Looks great in the kitchen.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love this microwave. It has many more features than my last microwave. I like the soften/melt feature. The fan has multiple speeds. The interior offers lots of space, for larger dishes.

This microwave replaced my last Kitchen Aid microwave that last 12 years. This be has many more features than my older had. I expect this one to last me 15 years.
from Montgomery, Illinois
We like this microwave mainly because our requirement is the door cannot swing further than the width of the microwave. Because we have a deeper cabinet to the left of the microwave opening with no clearance for those which the door hinge pivots door beyond width of microwave. Love the features on this microwave.

We have been very happy with our new microwave. It's a big improvement from the old one. Love all the settings.
Microwave is great with 7 sensor functions
from Peters Twp. Pittsburgh, PA
The microwave was installed after changing the 320 volt line to a lesser one. It performs well and I like it. I don't do much cooking in it since I have only had it since February 17, 2017. Looking forward to learning how to do more than my usual of just heating up foods.
Exactly what you expect from a Kitchen Aid

I bought it back in November 2016, it was back ordered until February. Totally worth the wait. I love the auto fan feature because sometimes I forget to turn on the fan.
