Best of Both Worlds - Convection Oven and Microwave
from Chandler, AZ, United States
Comments about Whirlpool 30" Double Electric Wall Oven - Stainless Steel:
The design is modern yet looks at home in our retro Mid Century house. Who needs a second oven when the microwave serves double duty. We use the microwave as a second oven to bake things like pies while simultaneously roasting a chicken in the large oven. Fantastic utility and the convection option is great. Love the way you can set the temperature for whatever the recipe calls for and then when you select one of the "Easy Convect" options, the oven automatically calculates a new cook time length. Works incredibly well. No more subtraction gymnastics for us when trying to figure out the cook time in a convection oven. A bit of a Geek, I placed temp meters in different places in the oven while baking a sheet cake just to see how even the heat was. The temps never varied by more than a few degrees while on convection options. Very impressive. Love the rack options and of course the royal blue interior is great eye candy. We cook a lot in our house so buying a brand known for it performance and functionality was critical. We could have purchased any stove microwave, but we chose KitchenAid. Glad we did.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Smartest microwave I have ever seen. The oven also works well.
from Brooklyn, MI, United States
A little difficult to install, the way the flex conduit is routed, made a little adjustment and got it in. I am very impressed with this product.

Sleek design, oven / microwave double feature has been a beautiful addition to our kitchen. It works great and cooks food evenly as desired.
from Bakersfield, CA, United States
I love everything about my new oven, warming drawer and microwave. I do wish the microwave door opened from side to side instead of up and down.
Looks great but..
from Tampa, FL, United States
This oven looks great. It takes a little getting used to the controls but after that is it relatively easy to use. The biggest complaint about this oven is that it takes forever to preheat. It is also very noisy and takes along time to cool down.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I thought this looked like a great system and allowed me to utilize the space I had with a microwave combination.....To be honest, it's a pretty mediocre system and confusing to use. One of the WORST things about it is that it blows a lot of heat from the bottom onto my cupboards which eventually will harm them....Also, after using the microwave, even for a cup of coffee warm up, the dang FAN keeps on running and never shuts off!...So much for energy efficiency!!! I've complained and my service guy tells me it's normal....I've NEVER had a microwave do this and I have to literally REMEMBER to shut off the fan or an hour later, I'll go into the kitchen and it sounds like it's running!....Shelves are flimsy and blue enamel inside darkens....In short, I wouldn't buy this again....STUPID design......
We Love our KitchenAid Micro/Convection Combo Wall Oven
from Toutle, WA
We did a lot of research on appliances as we were building our new home. KitchenAid came up in the top three every time. I've never had a convection oven, so was a little hesitant to get one, but knew it would be an energy saver. So, we chose this model. It has served us well during the hot summer months in our new home. I can cook a wonderful meal for family and friends in a shorter amount of time with the convection feature. I love this Wall Oven. Not only does it look nice, but it is SO very functional and we are amazed at how our meats are cooked in a sorter amount of time and yet are more flavorful. We're delighted that we made the decision to go with this one!
Completely unacceptable performance. Very disappointed.
from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States
Bought these a couple of months ago. The oven takes almost 15 mins to reach 350 degrees. The unit is extremely loud. Microwave fan remains on after the time is up until you take the food out. Oven generates too much heat and noise. My 12 year old KitchenAid warmed up faster than this unit and made no noise whatsoever. I honestly feel ver disappointed with this purchase. Even worse, I had a custom tower extension built in my kitchen just to house this unit. Very unsatisfied and disappointed. KitchenAid doesn't live up to the quality it used to have.

We installed the Kitchen Aid convection oven in our new house about two months ago. My wife loves the unit. Cooking temperatures are consistent and predictable.
Problems with Convection feature in Oven...
from Nashville, TN, United States
I have had service on this unit 2 times, once already to replace a temp. sensor. The problem is that the rear left corner has a severe hot spot (from poor design and placement of the fan) that over-cooks food (burns stuff) using convection. I have had 3 other-brand convection ovens NEVER encountering this issue.
