After much research on what type of device I would purchase to replace my much LOVED over the counter GE Advantium microwave, I thought I had found a microwave that could be installed under the counter and would perform in a fashion similar to my Advantium- that is it would act as a microwave, speed cook my food and also provide me with a crisp and browned exterior to my food, as opposed to the usual rubbery microwaved food. This Kitchen Aid oven has dissapointed me from the moment it was installed. The "beautiful" exterior they speak of doesnt mention that the two screws that hold the oven in the cabinet are big, ugly silver screws against a black porcelain frame- quite visible when the door is closed and when looking at the oven from various angles. Secondly, the qua.ity of the stainless steel used for the oven interior is of poor quality, I bit of chili I cooked in it splashed on the wall of the oven cavity and has now permanently stained my 2 day old interior! Also, the Advertisement that it has a broiler and the image shown in their literature show a bright glow of a broiler being emitted when turned on. What KA doesn't tell you is that the broiler cannot operate independently of either the microwave or the convection oven, AND when it is operating it only uses 120V, not powerful enough to even make the broil element glow red, no less "broil or brown your food". Furthermore, the crisper function uses both microwaves plus the "broil" element to supposedly produce crisp food. Ever put pizza into a microwave to reheat? You get a rubbery crust! So with this crisp feature now you get a rubbery crust with a dried out crust and cheese thanks to the lousy "broil" feature. Why would they design an oven to crisp and have it use microwaves? Nothing crisp ever comes out of a microwave, including this one despite what they promise! Also, they rave about the great Easy Convect Convection oven... What isn't mentioned is that it takes 30 minutes to preheat.

I bought this unit to replace my old KitchenAid microwave/convention oven (KBMC147). As soon as this unit was installed and the installer started the test, I could notice how much louder the fun was than the prior one. Then after we run a 15 seconds test, the fun didn't go off. The standard beep after each minute still worked, but with the fan still going and at the loud noise the beep is barely noticeably. After letting the microwave cool down, I run another test for 15 seconds, and decided to wait and see if the fun would stop. It took it 5 minutes to stop after 15 seconds, and those are 5 minutes with a loud fan running. This seems like a very bad design to have the fun continue working, or one must be standing next to the unit to hit cancel each time you use it. When I called KitchenAid they told me it was normal for the fun to continue running for 5 minutes. And the noise, it is just like that, a noisy fun. I am not only not recommending this to anyone, but I am already sharing my experience and telling my family and friends to stay away from KitchenAid. I was a fan with all my kitchenAid appliances until now. I won't replace with the same brand any of my appliances when that time comes.

Bought this microwave December 3rd week 2016. As soon as my technician installed and turned on, the fan started making loud noise. I called support and due to lack of resource during vacation, it was not fixed till today. I got a tech appointment today and he fixed it. It was noticed that during manufacturing, the fan screws were not tightened. Wouldn't there be a Quality control for the products that are manufactured ?

I've had this microwave for less than a month but I already love the way it heats food consistently throughout so that the food seems to stay warmer longer. Haven't had a chance to use the convection baking option yet, but will definitely do so during the holidays when having a second oven will be a huge plus.

This is a great design that matches our KitchenAid appliances. The features and performance are top notch. The included convection accessories are very good quality. I like that the tones and display are the same as the double oven. Microwaves often look like the afterthought of the kitchen, but not this one. The only issue was that the KitchenAid badge was not centered on the oven door. Hopefully, warranty service can resolve that. It is off center by about 1.5 inches! How this one ever passed QA on the assembly line is surprising for a premium brand. Other than that, it is a tremendous unit and I would purchase it again.

This was the suggested replacement for my old kitchen aid microwave. First off it did not fit the cut out area in the cabinet and after spend over 2000.00 dollars for this unit we had to get a trim kit costing an additional 150.00 dollars. The how to use books are not helpful and vague. My old one had stick on guide as you opened it that helped you find the correct power for various foods for cooking , reheating etc. this one is extremely lacking. I also hate the digital read out. Too much black. Also hate the red trim on the handle. There was no store in Denver, Co that I could see this replacement and I had to order only seeing the picture. Did popcorn in it and it performed poorly.
