Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Different Microwave for Me

No Nick Name 6/28/2016

I was not sure about a microwave/convection oven, but now that I have used it, I really like the way it cooks and heats. The controls gave me a fit at first, but once I got them figured out it is a breeze to set time, cooking type, etc. I would recommend this to anyone interested in a new miicrowave

Different size!

Farva 11/16/2015

I bought this because our 'Architect I' microwave/convection oven had a control panel go bad and Kitchenaid has no replacement parts available. So instead of a couple-hundred dollar repair bill we had to spend another $1700 for a new one which is an 'Architect II'. THEN we bring it home and it's not even the same size as the previous one!. It's about three inches shorter in height. So now we have to have someone come in and make a filler panel for the cabinet to hide the hole created by the new shorter unit. All of this because replacement parts are not available. Thanks Kitchenaid.

Worst appliance ever!

Frustrated 7/17/2015

I am on my second microwave - replaced the first one in less than 3 months due to glitching error codes that would lock it up. Unable to get replacement parts (on back order forever). The second one started doing the same thing within a few weeks - have to shut down power to reset half the time. I see the appliance is off the market already, definitely a lemon! Called today, but won't come out until it errors again, leaving me without a microwave for a few days. Please replace my failing microwave that still has 5 months of warranty left...too unreliable!!!

Overall a good product

PeteVO 4/1/2015

I bought this device for the convection qualities, which I've yet to try. As a 900W microwave it cooks fine, but more slowly than a 1200W so be prepared. Also the door folding down is a little awkward and makes reaching inside difficulty. The features and automatic options are adequate. I'm a big fan of using "reheat" and there are a lot of reheat options, which work "ok." I've yet to have anything reheat perfectly. ATTENTION! This is a 220V device and will require special wiring.

My new Microwave!

Mama Zee 3/6/2015

Hi. We remodeled her kitchen and I decided to purchase this microwave oven. I love the space inside so roomie, but I'm a little disappointed on what I would call missing features. I think that it would've been wonderful to see options on cooking different things, Insteqd of only using this for the reheat or defrost options. I have tried to connect potatoes before, but I was a little disappointed as they still tasted like they were cooked in the microwave. Nonetheless, the defrost cycle works perfectly when I'm trying to defrost fish or meat without it cooking in the oven. I am still very happy with this purchase.

Cece T G 12/29/2014

I recently purchased new kitchen Aide appliances, the French Door Refrigerator,5 Element Induction Cook top,Convection Built-in Microwave Oven and the Convection Single Wall Oven. I am so thrilled with all of the appliances! My very favorite is the Induction Cook top, it is amazing! I cannot say enough about it! It heats up and cools down just like cooking on a gas stove. Food does not burn on it and the clean up is so COOL! Just wipe it off and dry. NO SCRUBBING! Kitchen Aide really is tops in my book!

Sleek looking, Ample space

LindaSheron 12/20/2014

When in the store I thought the interior of this unit looked small, but it is actually larger than my previous micro/convection which had plenty of space. Nice surprise was the Easy Convert Convesction Control, enter the standard temperature and time from a receipe and the oven automatically makes the adjustments. Also came with some unexpected accessories, a large steaming dish, crisping tray, and oven rack. Like that even when using the convection, the lazy susan still rotates to help foods cook evenly. Very happy after a month of use.

One Year Recap-It works fantastic!

seisman 12/19/2014

We installed this unit under our counter last year and it is super convenient and fast for microwaving the kids lunches. We also use it all the time as a convection oven for browning potatoes, or roasting chicken breasts, it heats up quickly and saves on using the large oven. Great to have both features in one unit so a space saver, and the oven looks great.

I experimented using the crisper to panfry celery for soup and was pleased. So far, I have used the convection oven to cook pizza using our pizza stone. baked some cookies on the baking sheet. cooked a breakfast casserole as well as the usual microwave activities and they have all turned out great. My pie was overbrowned on top, so may need to experiment with that. I haven't used the steamer yet, but have been very pleased with the rest. The controls are easy to use, but until I learn what each code number is, I get a bit impatient waiting for it to scroll through all the options until it gets to the one I want.

Don't buy

CRisen58 10/17/2014

I bought this one to replace the previous model they no longer make. I was assured that the dimensions were the same as the previous one, which they are not, so I am having to have a stainless steel bracket built to fill in the big space left in the opening. That is the only reason I bought this one. The previous model I owned started giving me problems within a few months of moving in to my home. It would just stop working. I had the local Certified KitchenAid repairman out several times and they kept replacing a door sensor. Still would just quit working. I messed with this microwave/convection for 5 years. I found when it would stop working if I would turn the breaker off and back on it would work for a while. After the initial purchase price of around $2000. and $1000 in repair bills and numerous trips to the breaker box, it finally quit all together. When it did work I loved it. It just didn't work more than it did. This new one is very noisy and I really wish I hadn't bought it. Again I only bought it because I was assured it would fit. I did buy the extended warranty this time. Ready some of the other reviews of this product it looks like I might need it.

Error F2E1 Keyboard - message

Barbara29 9/22/2014

I like this Convection/Microwave oven but I am starting to have a problem with it. I have been in my new home for about 3 1/2 months. We use this appliance often but we have randomly been getting the message "ERROR-F2E1- Keyboard" on the touch screen and a beeping sound. I have tried to pay attention to what I am doing with the appliance when this error message occurs but it appears to be a random occurance. When this happens, we can not use the appliance at all. Pressing the "cancel" button does not correct the appliance. My experience has been that, over time, somehow, the appliance repairs itself because hours later or the next day I am able to use the oven and all it's features again. It can operate perfectly fine for several days and multiply uses before the error message returns.

ambkel 5/24/2014

Last week my KA oven stopped working - shut down completely when the self clean function was run for the first time. This week the microwave oven stopped working - error code F2E1. The appliance repairman advised that the required part is out of stock and on back order with no known ETA. Seems to me that this indicates this is a common failure. Both of these appliances were just installed 6 months ago. In the meantime I have no functioning oven or microwave.

Jacksde 4/30/2014

Our new convection microwave fits in with our other appliances and looks much better than a counter top microwave or an over the range model. We installed it under the counter since we didn't have extra wall space. This works well, but you do have to bend over to read the controls It would be cool if they had a remote control for under counter installs. We have only been using it a couple of weeks, so we are still learning about it, but so far we are very pleased. Not the cheapest option, but worth it if you are fussy about how your kitchen looks.

Julie48 4/29/2014

I have never owned a convection oven. The house we bought had one in the kitchen. I read the instructions, and tried several of the features so far, and it works like a dream. You can reheat your coffee to warm, hot, or very hot. It does a great job sensing when your popcorn is down. I made back potatoes using the convection settings, and they turned out great as well. I'm going to make sure any future home I own has one of these in it.

BernieH 4/29/2014

We owned (and loved) this appliance in our previous house - We especially love the crisper feature. It was a foregone conclusion that we would buy the same unit again. Our second unit, however, has been unreliable. On random occasions, the keyboard stops working, or it begins to beep for no reason, and/or the screen blanks out. The best way to describe the unit's behavior is that it has "lost it's mind" Nothing can be done to remedy the situation other than resetting the circuit breaker. The unit will then operate fine for a few days to a few weeks. We have not been able to identify any pattern in the malfunctions.

Overpriced/lack of quality

Linken 1/28/2014

When we remodeled our kitchen in 2012, the appliance salesman suggested getting this unit separate from the oven (KEBS107) instead of the combined model so that, in the event that one failed, both ovens would not be affected. Little did we think that a mere 17 months later, the microwave would simply quit while in the process of reheating pancakes. We had a Jenn-Air double oven which only needed service once in its 22 years, and we did not expect that an extended warranty was necessary for a similar Whirlpool product. Since it was out of warranty, the KitchenAid Service department connected me with A & E for service.They have been here twice & it is still not fixed, but that is a separate issue. Part of the problem is the design. One of the springs in the door closing mechanism broke. The door tends to snap shut when it gets to a certain point, which may have caused this. Although the spring is approximately the size of that in a ballpoint pen, the entire interlock system had to be ordered to replace this part. $! The $59 microwave we are using in the meantime heats better than this model. Only used the convection mode once, & was also not impressed with the crisping feature.

Poor design, loud fan, and too slow

Microking 1/21/2014

When I moved into our new home, I was excited to see such a flashy microwave with so many features. It is installed in our cabinets over the counter top, so it didn't take us long to realize that the pull down door was very difficult to use, especially for my children. You have to be over 5'6" to be able to get things in and out of it without using a stool. I noticed when cooking items, that it takes considerably more time than much cheaper models that we had owned in previous homes. We found the sensor cooking to not work well either. The fan is annoyingly loud when running, but I could live with that. The problem is that when the "completed cooking" alarm goes off, the fan keeps going until you open the door. If you aren't right by the microwave when it beeps, it's easy to miss it and think that the microwave is still running because of the loud fan that keeps on going. I found the convection oven and crisper features pretty useless in a kitchen where we already have an oven and stove top. I guess it would be useful to have if you only had this one appliance in a camper or something, but for real life usage in a real kitchen, very sub par.
