        Comments about KitchenAid 2.2 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave - Black with Stainless Steel:

        We bought this because it is fully wrapped in SS and it will be sitting on the counter until we are able to fully remodel our kitchen. We replaced an over-the-stove microwave. We love the size and features, but are still learning how to use them all. The only "con" I have so far is that the door always sounds like you are slamming it, and if you try to close quietly then you may get a "door not closed" message. We've only had this microwave 2.5 months, but like it so far.

              Comments about KitchenAid 2.2 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave - Black with Stainless Steel:

              Had the unit for less than two years with light use. Microwave began making a continually crackling noise even when not in use, similar to problem stated by others. Through the Kitchen aid website had "authorized" repair person come out and charge $125 for a service call. Said I needed a new light bulb and socket and would order part. Repair person called back over a week later and said there are no replacement parts available for this unit.
              I called Kitchen aid who confirmed no replacement parts available and I should have know that fact. Why did they send out a repair person if unit can't be repaired. Now I'm forced to buy a new unit and out $125 for a worthless service.

              Warning: Big Footprint, Small Microwave

                    This was the upgraded unit offered by our builder as part of the full appliance package. The unit is large, but the actual space inside the microwave is very small. It's as deep as a standard microwave, but the width is no where near what is expected of an upgraded unit. The 1.6 cu. ft. is way too small to even think about reheating anything more than one dish at a time. Sorry, Thankgiving guests, you'll have to wait for all the item to be reheated.

                    This is a very poor way to utilize the large overall size of the cabinet (outside dimensions). The physical design is not very efficient at all.

                                            We bought this microwave in conjunction with a KitchenAid convection oven. We mounted it above our oven, with the trim kit option. It has a very sharp built-in look and we are very pleased. The microwave function is simple. We previously owned a GE and this oven is much quieter.

                                                  Comments about KitchenAid 2.2 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave - Black with Stainless Steel:

                                                  Have had this unit for 18 months and was installed when we built the house. Experiencing same problem with opening mechanism that others have identified. Cheap plastic part on the inside broke which prevents you from opening the door while the microwave continues to run. Very disappointed in the quality and the fact the unit doesn't even last two years. My first experience with KitchenAid and probably my last - especially if you can't get replacement parts which others have indicated is a problem.

                                                        It was only delivered a week ago & is a powerful microwave. Very happy with it.
