KitchenAid 1200 Watt Counter Convection Microwave Oven
from Green Valley, Az
Comments about KitchenAid 1.5 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave - Stainless Steel:
I bought this last month and am pleased with it so far. Fits in our alcove perfectly. Buttons are easy to read. I've read where the buttons are a little hard to push, but this is a good factor especially if there are small children around where they can't press them too easily. Baked a pie, turned out great, husband very pleased. Also scalloped corn, cinnamon rolls and great for reheating. Looking forward to baking many more items. Anxious to try out the grill. Microwave is very quiet.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Microwave is very noisy
Have had the microwave less than 1 month, already needs repair. Noisy and steams up really bad. Would not recommend since it is not vented properly.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Does not vent
from Columbus, OH
This microwave worked in the beginning. After less than 2 years, it does not vent. The steam builds up inside and does not escape until the door is open. Then the steam rises all over the new kitchen wood cabinets, which over time will warp them. I called Kitchen Aid for service. After the service person came out, he said there are only 3 things that can be replaced on microwaves (the turntable and runner were 2 of them) so it is has to be replaced. I ordered a new one and it has the same problem. So disappointed!!
a microwave that does it all, convection, broiling and micro
from canton, ga
I have had other microwave convection ovens but this one is great! the broiling of a steak on the others made a huge mess in the microwave. This one does an excellent job with little clean up needed. The power level is perfect for all needs.
Counter Top Microwave Convection Oven
By Gourmet Cook
from Frisco, TX
We love the oven! I love the 1200 watt microwave, and my wife is enjoying the added convection oven capacity with our main oven. If fit nicely into the microwave space we had built-in to our cabinets. Didn't really have to do anything more than plug it in.
from Sparta, WI
The only reason we bought this microwave was due to the current rebate, but we are very happy with our purchase.
Quieter with extra features
By CM....the noncooker
from Washington DC
This KA microwave replaced one we had for 10 years with daily heavy use. The new one is quieter with convection and grilling. More features and more set positions for cooking. Great item. I have other KA products as well. All great.
Great little microwave!
from Sammamish, WA
I needed a counter-top microwave for my kitchen after replacing the micro-hood above my range with a standard lighted vent hood. (More room now, making cooking much easier!) I ordered a butcher-block cart for my microwave and stand mixer. This works out perfectly, as I no longer need to stand directly in front of a running microwave as I'm preparing other items at the range. My only complaint is that the microwave is lightweight so it moves easily, the rubber feet don't grip very well. (It has a push button opening system and it's tight, so opening the microwave would slide the microwave back an inch each time.) I added a matching wood bookshelf that sits on the top of the microwave, so the weight of the cookbooks eliminated the slippage. (The shelf has about an inch of clearance and has silicone button feet that grip nicely.) Best of all, the convection mode heats quickly and both modes are nice and quiet.

Pretty good, but needs work
from Grand Rapids MI
This microwave looks fine, but a few design items need to be tweaked. 1. Button to open the door - you have to push way to hard. Every time I have to open the door, the entire microwave slide back. i put a pad under it that should stop that, and it is so hard, even the pad slides with the microwave now.2. Express cook buttons - make express heating buttons more clear and with only one push of the button.

Overall Pleased, But Sad it Doesn't Have a Rack..
from Lexington, KY
I wasn't able to see this actual microwave in the store when I purchased it, but the store had a convection microwave that went above a range/stovetop. I assumed that this would be similar without the fan. I was very disappointed to discover that it doesn't come with a rack, so you can put a rectangular dish in the oven, which I was expecting to be able to do with the convection microwave, especially since an older convection microwave I had also had a rack. This makes it very limiting to use the convection oven part. I wish I had realized it. I would have purchased a different one. That said, it works well for everything else.
