Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, comfortable use! Quick heating!! I never realized there was such a big difference in microwaves, until I purchased my new KitchenAid for our new home. So glad that we chose all KitchenAid appliances. Couldn't be happier!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expected More from KithchenAid Only 4 years old and unusable. Within seconds of turning it on, sparking starts. Sounds like a machine gun! I've had much cheaper microwaves that have lasted 12 years. So disappointed, as all my other appliances are KitchenAid too. Hope they don't also fail so soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Junk This is the second one we have had over a period of four years. The first one lasted maybe nine months, and stopped microwaving. It would turn on, the platter would spin, but nothing would get heated. The first one was replaced under warranty. The warranty process was terrible, and took about two months to replace it. The replacement microwave was the same exact model, and it has now lasted a whopping three years. October 2014 to October 2017. Same problem: it no longer heats anything. KitchenAid used to be considered high quality, but I would never recommend their products. Poor quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Quality Installed Kichenaid appliances in my brand new home in july 2014. Just over 3 years, this microwave died. Now light comes on, clock ticks when you start it but turntable does not rotate and does not heat.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this Microwave This microwave started having problems within six months and the only parts available are for the turn table. An appliance that cannot be repaired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Counter Unit I bought this about 2 weeks ago and have not used it a lot yet. I've done a lot of re-heating, making bacon, and roasting vegetables thus far. The unit is quiet, heats fast, and seems to be very reliable in that it performs as advertised. I plan to use this as a second oven and it should work out fine. If there was a way to improve the product it would be to put a light on the inside.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy Brand new home with all kitchenaide appliances. We've lived in our home for just over 3 years and we have had 2 kitchen aide microwaves. The first one had a defect after 6 months, the builder replaced it with the same kind now 2.5 years later it makes a abnoxious noise and flashing lights and burning smell. Now I'll have to get a different brand and I hope the rest of my appliances hold up better

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lasted only 16 months We moved into our house March 2016 and today, July 14, 2017 it made a hideous sound while beginning to reheat a cup of coffee and just quit. I called customer service but they say they cannot help me as it is past the warranty; not years past warranty, just four months past. They offered a discount on another. This does not sound like a good solution.
