Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly what I wanted! I was trying to replace a 10 year old microwave that matched my stainless steel appliances and of the same quality as the old model. This was perfect! It fit the built-in space that I had. I think it is a better quality than the old model and the functions I used the most were mostly in the same place as the old model. The measurements are the same but the inside looks larger. 12/1/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sleek, well designed microwave 10 years ago, I remodeled my kitchen. I built a cabinet for a Panasonic Gold Series microwave. It died and I needed a unit to fit into the opening and blend in with my decor. This unit not only looks impressive but operates better than what was replaced. It is quite powerful, quiet and easy to clean. It has many functions however, the manual leaves something to be desired. While 1200 watts, it performs like a more powerful unit. 11/18/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by a great small space micro this microwave unit was purchased with the optional trim kit which has given it a great built in look. 3/25/10
Rated 1 out of 5 Don't buy it For this much money I would expect a unit to last more than 4 years and of course the trim kit won't work with any other brand. But after 2 lousy kitchenaid units we will bite the bullet and buy a different brand as well as a new trim kit. 5/10/10
