Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exquisite Look Bought with new home package to match other kitchen appliances. Made to sit about chest high over a separate oven unit. We got double ovens and wanted the matching microwave and had it installed about eye level in a cabinet over the counter. Unfortunately, the pull down door doesnt lend well to elevated installations and it can't be altered. There also isn't a side open door model in this family. So it looks really nice, works pretty good, but cumbersome to use in our set up. One notable mention is the exhaust fan that runs after you cook something for a couple minutes or so. Pretty cool. It is a fancy model so you'll need to get use to & learn to use the bells and whistles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Looking I like the fact this microwave doesn't look like a typical microwave oven. I installed it above my KitchenAid oven and it looks great. It's easy to use and works well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Designer needs help When we close the door, the switch that turns out the light and allows the unit to start doesn't reliably activate. We have to push on the door to make it work. The repair guy that was sent from our appliance dealer told us that we had to close the door harder. He showed us, "It works 9 times out of 10." My 25 year old countertop GE microwave works 10 times out of 10. The repair guy is going to replace the switch to try to fix it. If that doesn't work, he may try something with the door. I think it's a really hokey design, and I don't have a lot of confidence in the repair guy. We bought a full complement of new Kitchenaid appliances. The oven needed a new roll out shelf. I'm not impressed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! we purchased our unit about 6 weeks ago. From a price point perspective it is an awesome produce; it looks like a built in oven. It is a fantastic produce, functional, stainless inside. Sensor cooking works great even for baked potatoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from There's a learning curve We recently installed this microwave with our recent kitchen remodel. For anyone considering this model, it must be installed counter height or lower as the front door opens like an oven, not sideways like a traditional microwave. If you install it any higher you will potentially burn yourself when removing food. It has worked like a charm but I do use the "cheat sheet" that was included. It has lots of preprogrammed options, but you won't know what they are without the sheet. My previous kitchen had a similar GE microwave that opened straight & had a dial versus push button so I didn't have issues with this one. For some it would be an adjustment in functionality. Matches my other appliances so I'm a happy camper.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Should have a side door option This microwave came with a new construction home we recently purchased. It was installed at eye level for a 6 foot person. The pull down door makes it very difficult for a person who is 6 feet tall to use. My wife and children simply can't use it without a step stool which creates a safety hazard. This is clearly designed to be a wall unit but the pull down door is a deal breaker if I had to purchase this unit myself. An option to open either from side or front would make this a much more versatile product.
