Description
Architect Series II cooking products include a variety of options to fit your needs. From built-in ovens and warming drawers, to freestanding and slide-in ranges, there's something for every kitchen and every cook. Intuitive easy-to-use features such as Even-Heat True Convection, Custom Control temperature management, and high-speed cooking, were inspired by, and created for, those who love to cook. KitchenAid is also one of the only manufacturers that offers a full line of ventilation hoods to complement a full suite of kitchen appliances. And, they test all of their ventilation systems for compatibility with their cooktops and ranges.

The Architect Series II cooking products will remind you of all the reasons why you love to cook. Refined performance features encourage your creativity by giving you the freedom to experiment - and feel confident when doing so. The feel of a well-crafted handle and the seamless look of beveled edges are two examples of the enhanced design elements that will capture your senses. This evolution of performance and design is another demonstration of why KitchenAid cooking products are an excellent choice for you.

With both microwave and oven convection cooking, this combination oven offers the versatility and speed of a microwave and the exceptional performance of our convection ovens. In addition to the performance benefits, you receive the appearance of a built-in wall oven.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool and very usable. Complex, just read the instructions and go for it. The control panel is at eye level and very useable after familurization t 7/13/08
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product and deal The purchase was a retrofit into an existing upright cabinet.We searched many product lines, both local and on the net, [...] and the decision was easy.The ovens fit our need, our design requirements and most of all, they are more than we expected.Pricing was very acceptable [...]. All in all, the micro is larger than our old unit. the main oven is more functional than the older unit too. The single band of controls is now at eye level for my wife and not high above or too low. Our complements to the designers. We own a single upright Kitchen Aide freezer and separate refrigerator for over twenty years and are still pleased with that purchase.We can not find anything wrong except the weight. It took two men and a dog to set it in place.Thanks again for the purchase opportunity.Ed and Pat Solner 12/24/07
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst Purchase Ever We had this oven installed on December 1st 2008. It lasted 4 weeks before the magnetron and inverter went. We called kitchenaid to get the appliance fixed, who sent a repair technician who diagnosed the problem but couldn't fix it. Kitchenaid then sent ANOTHER technician who then had to re-diagnose the problem.The second technician has been a nightmare since, unable to order correct parts and fix the problem at all.To this date, the oven has been broken for 4 weeks with no sign of it getting fixed anytime soon. Do yourself a favor and get something else. 2/5/09
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product-Good Value I was particular with the oven-microwave oven combo both with appearance and fit in our kitchen remodel and this product definately was best. It is well made with many features that are user friendly. We had a double oven that we rarely used both at the same time and this unit got the micowave off the counter and provided more counter space. Although more money than other units with similar features, this company was definately the best value. The convection system in both units is a plus and a very nice feature. I would highly recommend this oven if it is the fit for your cabinet and kitchen. 4/2/09
