Summary: I like this microwave. It is easy to use and well vented. Only complaint is that is on button is not totally centered under the pad. Maybe it is just my getting used to it since the feel of the pads is different from my old microwave. Great options, power and vented. I would recommend it to others.
Summary: Just purchased a microwave for the first time as we had to include one in our new kitchen renovation and could not be more pleased. Have used microwaves in other people's homes and was never overly impressed. This make and model is perfect. It looks great...fits in with other Bosch products we bought ( dishwasher and stove) and all of them are truly awesome. While they might cost a bit more than some other brands the quality is well worth the price.
Summary: The microwave is powerful and has a nice stainless finish. As with all other OTR microwaves, the lights could be brighter and the fan could be quieter. Since it is installed over the range, the handle gets very hot, I think it should have been metal rather than silver colored plastic, but so far it has been fine.
Summary: Hated the cheaper Samsung OTR microwave so got this model from Bosch to match my oven. Handle feels like steel but the door closing mechanism feels a little cheap. I expected more of a 'thunk' but got a 'clank.' The door feels a little light-weight as well. Maybe you have to pay more but around $375 is not cheap. Still, it works fine and the 1-3 minute on-touch buttons are convenient. I would recommend at this price.
