This device came with my new home appliance package and I'm really happy with it. I just used it last weekend in convection mode and I was really impressed on how fast it came to temperature. With summer fast approaching being able to quickly heat up without heating the whole house is a great feature. My only caveat is the normal operation sound is a bit rattly.

About six months into ownership, the microwave started "ramping up" to run upon pressing START, just got worse and worse and now it is about 10-15 seconds before it actually gets "up to speed". Additionally, when you microw something, stop it, and then go to start it again, the microwave double beeps and asks you to open the door again instead of just running when you press start. I called kitchenaid/Whirlpool 13th March and got Ref#9904882757, have had no less than six repair calls, multiple replacement parts and it still doesn't work correctly, this last week the repair person called whirlpool and they said replace MORE parts... I just want this dud replaced! Model: KMBP107ESS01, SN D60102698 Manuf date Jan 2016, purchase date 3/16/16. What do I have to do!

I am less than thrilled with the convection oven after two months. The temperature readings on the unit are way off from actual oven temperature. The oven will indicate that it has preheated and reading a temperature of 325, but according to an oven thermometer temperature only 250. Problem is that you have to preset your cook time and have to put your food in the oven immediately after unit says preheat complete or the unit will turn off. So, when you put your food in and cook according to your recipe, the food isn't cooked thoroughly after the recommended times. I have had the unit serviced and they replaced thermostat, controller, all parts associated with convection oven. Still doesn't heat any better, nor cook the food appropriately. Significant temperature differences still exist between what the oven says the temperature is at and an oven thermometer, but more importantly food still not cooking properly. Technician has no solution, since all parts have been replaced. So, if you are considering this unit for the convection oven as a second oven, you may want to consider a different brand. If you are not planning to use the convection oven often, this is a very expensive microwave to reheat food. Other comments on properly functioning features: Unit is loud when operating compared to other microwaves and definitely when operating in convection oven mode. One has to turn up the sound of the TV in the adjacent room to counter the loudness of the fan. Crisper feature is nice and seems to work well. Microwave steamer feature works well and is convenient.

Just installed when we noticed that the fan was noisy. Had a repairman come (covered by the warranty). Said it was a defective fan and that it could be replaced. We told RC Willey and Kitchenaid that we prefer to get a new replacement microwave since it is not even a month old. RC Willey did replace the first one with a brand new one, same model. Unfortunately, we ended up with the same problem. It still is noisy when being used. We have to live with that now. Our old tabletop microwave was a lot better.

We remodeled our kitchen with ALL Kitchenaid black stainless appliances. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We couldn't find one of these microwaves in a store, so we took a gamble and ordered it. NOT disappointed. It is so much more than just a basic microwave. It is also a second induction oven. When we got the appliances we tested them and baked chocolate chip cookies in both the microwave and the oven. I hate to say it, but I think that the cookies from the microwave were just a tad better!!!!

I bought my first KitchenAid microwave and oven about a month ago. I cannot say enough about these appliances. I can't even begin to tell you the favorite feature because I love it all.
