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.

Depth in specs is incorrect, should be 18"

Carol6347 6/12/2019

Can't accurately rate the model because KA is in the process of exchanging with no hassle due to nonfunctioning power button. Do want to alert KA and buyers that the actual depth is 18" due to bulge at the back which my prior model did not have. Also, the plug is a straight in plug vs a side plug which can make a difference in your measurements. Formerly owned KCMS1555RSS2, and the door is much stiffer on the new model. I've had a few "door" messages as well when the door was fully closed. This unit seems to require longer time settings and the colon between the hour and minutes flashes continuously, which is unusual. I've only had the unit a short time and use has been limited due to the power button failure so I can't really be sure, whether I just haven't adjusted to the "feel" of the new unit, have a unit with more than one problem or if I just don't like the new model as much as my old one. Primary concern is alerting all to the depth being inaccurate which resulted in having to have an electrician move the outlet in the built in cabinet for a better fit. Prior post on the other 213/4 " model was in error. Hopefully, KA will take it down.

Good features

Reddog2 5/23/2019

Good quality And functionality. All the built-in ovens were to deep for my cabinet opening. I used this counter top with a trim kit and it fit well.

Terrible

Dlpick 3/1/2019

I sold appliances for 13 years and always felt good about Kitchen Aid, and for the most part probably still do-all except for this microwave! Replaced a KA I had for 10 years with this one, half the features of my old one, terrible hot spots on food, four minutes to warm up soup/chili. I'd say it more like 800 watts, vs the 1200 claimed, very disappointed -should have bought the unbranded Maytag....

So disappoimted

katedid 1/3/2019

Purchased within a month. When opened the box the styrofoam was broken as well as the turntable support. The published dimensions were incorrect and the appliance will not fit in my under cabinet microwave shelf. Use on the counter is poor - the metal/plastic "feet" make it slide all over the place. Requested help to find rubber "feet" from Kitchenaid. So far no response. It could have been a great product, works well, but too many issues right now.

Very Disappointed

agfitz 11/5/2018

I purchased this for my new home. I have been using it less than a month. It does not work as it should. I must push the numbers on the control panel several times before if at all getting a response. I cannot push any numbers for the potato or frozen entree option so have to use the default of 1 and 10 oz. I must hold the open door button about 5 seconds before it will open. My dealer took it in for "repair" but brought it back the same. I am hoping KitchenAid will replace it. I would rather have another model. NO I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.

Trust the reviews

rhonda501 6/12/2018

I purchased this microwave in January despite the poor reviews because all my other appliances are Kitchenaid. It is only June and the microwave is broke. Kitchenaid is supposedly going to replace the microwave. We'll see.
