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.

So Confused

By 

from Elk Grove

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave:

I read all these great reviews and am just baffled. I have had this microwave in my home for 13 months and am on my 5th repair! Multiple problems with the door, door hinges, and had sockets replaced. Repairman said it had a short. I am so frustrated that it has not been replaced obviously it is a lemon! I expected so much more at this price point. I never experienced anything like this with any appliance I've purchased in the past and I'm sorry to say will not purchase anything from Whirpool again!

Already requesting service

By 

from Michigan

Verified Buyer

Comments about KitchenAid 30" Black Stainless Steel Over-The-Range Microwave:

I have had the microwave about a year and a half (though it was installed only 7 months ago - it was purchased when the contractor began a kitchen renovation, but sat in the box for several months). I am already in need of service. The microwave does not always work - the light inside does not go on and when I enter a time on the pad and press start, the digital message says to close the door (door is closed) and the microwave will not operate. I'm a bit disappointed because I purchased the microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, and oven at the same time and not only do I need service on the microwave, but the ice maker in the freezer has already quit working and also requires service or replacement.

My husband wanted the KitchenAid appliances because he felt that the name meant super quality. We liked the looks and felt them to be modern and "upscale". Because of the fact that we are already requiring service on two of the four appliances, I cannot say whether I'd actually recommend these appliances to my friends... they have good features, but service already?
