Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected My desire was to have a double oven but was sold on the microwave/oven combination. I was leery about it being what I wanted but now that I've had it in my kitchen for almost 2 months, I love it. The fact that I have convection in both the microwave and oven takes care of needing a double oven. I love the controls and they are simple to operate. They looked complex at first (I even told my daughter-in-law I thought I'd be able to launch rockets with it) but I sat down, read the instructions and was using many of the features in no time. I'm even teaching my husband how to use it which is no easy job. I'm very glad I purchased this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product is a lemon Currently awaiting service for the worst problem yet - microwave fan turns on by itself with error codes on both the oven and microwave panels. In the two years I have had the unit, we have had four separate other service calls: convection fan loose, then convection motor failed, microwave oven did not perform self cooling function at install, magnetron failed, inverter failed, and now current problem which remains undiagnosed. The oven is also very slow to heat up. A survey of some other customer dissatisfaction sites reveals similar problems. We haven't tried the oven self-cleaning mode due to multiple reports of electronic failure, but maybe that would be one way to put it out of its misery. Trying to work with Sears through my 5 year Extended Protection Plan but they said I haven't had enough problems with it to qualify for replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You could do better on the features and controls and the instruction booklet Both ovens are not easy to control or set up. The microwave needs more control features one in particular would be the add 10 second feature. I do find it cooks great when it is set up right. The instruction booklet is not good, was it written by an American, not clear. The oven takes a long ttime to preheat and i wonder about it's effect on effiiciency?? It also puts out alot of heat which makes we concerned about it insulation. It it a handsome unit. The oven controls are not user friendly and in combination with the lame instruction the frustation level of using the oven increases. Would i recommend it to neighbors, probably not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2nd time around ! We purchased a complete KitchenAid kitchen when we built our house 9 years ago including the 30 in Convection Combination. The Microwave could not be repaired and the color is not made now. I looked at all the combos on the market and decided to return to KitchenAid considering their changes and upgrades to this appliance and so far I am VERY pleased with the oven and microwave. The window in the oven is fantastic as well and the new blue interior and the rolling rack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased This products is pleasing to the eye. A great addition to any kitchen. The performance is exceptional. I wouldn't have purchased any other product. The down side to this is that it takes a bit of time to warm up. Unless you get in the habit of using rapid preheat (which I haven't seen on any other product) and use that all the time, the wait is quite long. Other than that, I am 110% happy with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a good product This is another good product from kitchenaid, i own a kitchenaid fridge, and i have been very satisfied with this 2 appliances and i would highly recommend these products. The Oven heats up very fast. The Microwave has shown some erratic behaviors, like the fan stays on after cooking,sometimes after entering time and press start nothing happens and the system would say cooking, but nothing major.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Combo-I've ever had!!!!! This product was a part of a completely re-designed kitchen. We gutted the existing kitchen and because we were moving from a very large kitchen in a home to a smaller space in a condo features and function were critical. We also were going for a "clean" and modern look, this product fit the bill on every account. The controls on the microwave in combination with menu features that allow you to customized heating and cooking via a one function button is fantastic. The microwave takes the guess out of reheating and cooking. The add a minute function is a great feature and can be used without interrupting the cooking cycle. The oven is loaded with all the features a gourmet cook would want. Temperature is reliable and the oven heats quickly. The blue "innards" and the sliding racks are fantastic-great product-great features

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is sleek stainless steel, and attractive in my kitchen I went to buy a Bosch, but it was too square and would require cabinet to be cut out more. This one fit with only having to add a 3 inch board. I didn't plan on the kitchenaid because of the expense. But I learned that the microwave was also a toaster oven and I was able to have 2 for 1 then. Very unique. It works great for both processes. I do not have to use my big oven for small portions. It is as if I have a double oven and MW all in one section of my cabinet. So, my combo is actually 3 appliances in one. Kitchenaid heard the complaints that combo units have to be taken out completely if MW or oven fails. This is no longer the case. Now it is designed with features that allow the failed unit to be removed without taking out the whole big combo. Hopefully, I won't need any repairs. I am very pleased with this product and feel the extra cost of it, is worth it.
