The kit looked fine right out of the box. There was no double face tape visible from the outside on the trim panel. The panel is somewhat flexible (as you would expect as it isn't structural) but lays flat and pulls tight, and the plastic corners match the same type as those covering our refrigerator hinges. It does extend further out from the cabinet than our previous microwave/trim panel, about 1" total. Mounting hardware: First, the trim panel covers a standard-size oven opening, as in my application. The brackets don't - they aren't wide enough for the side mounts, and I didn't understand why they weren't wider/ why there wasn't a snap-off extension or some way to address this. I screwed some small pieces of scrap 1"x 2" into my cabinet floor next to the microwave to mount to. It does mount across the bottom as well, but needs side mounts too. Secondly, all 23 screws supplied for non-flush application tap into wood, but not well at all into the metal microwave cabinet for bracket mounting - I had some round head screws from my prior microwave handy that worked. Third, the sheet metal mounts are not really precise (the internal add-on duct didn't fit well , but you can't see it), and may take some unexpected bending, moving around/re-tightening, and tinkering - make sure the panel is centered and flat as you go, and the microwave door doesn't hit the panel when it fully opens before you wrap up.

Is there a way to rate this product with "ZERO STARS"? There is a reason there are so many poor reviews of this product on the web. I am an above-average do it yourselfer and many of the problems cited in those reviews were encountered during this install. The trim kit frame is flimsy and held by plastic brackets at the corners using some type of double sided adhesive that is sticking out of the edge. When taken out of the box, the corners all appear to have small indentations where the stainless is affixed to the plastic brackets. It looks horrible installed with brand new appliances. Using the templates and following the instructions verbatim results in not being able to open the door all the way. The trim kit is not flat and will not sit flat on the opening even though everything is level. Could go on and on...... Not buying another LG product. In addition, the microwave itself has a turntable issue.

I would recommend this product
from Spring Valley, California
I am very pleased with this kit. It enclosed my micro-wave and sits above the built-in oven making it appear to be one built-in unit.

Given this was the first time an order had been placed to ABT, it was a pleasant surprise that the product delivered was as expected, in perfect deliverable order AND 2 weeks early.I would order again from ABT without hesitation given the quality of service provided.
Delivery was completed 2 weeks ahead of original deliverable target.
5 Stars, thank you

Comments about LG Studio Series Black Stainless Steel Microwave Trim Kit:
I ordered black stainless steel appliances but could not find the microwave surround anywhere. ABT was able to get it for me. My kitchen is now complete. It looks fantastic.

Easy to install, Looks great
from Phoenix, az
The trim kit matches microwave but needed shims on bottom to allow the door to open freely.
Trim kit is special order and took nearly a month to arrive.
Just what I was looking for.
from Buford, GA
I read some comments about how difficult this is to install and was a little nervous about ordering it. I'm not a handyman by any means, and maybe it was just luck, but the installation was fast, easy and perfect. I couldn't be happier with the trim kit.
Was replacing a white unit and trim kit. Thankfully used the former trim kit as my guide for install. The instructions aren't the best but doable.
Very quick del
Excellent Trim Kit!
from San Jose, CA
It really looks great around our new microwave -- it is surprising it isn't part of the purchase of the microwave, but it does look good!
