Summary: I had this microwave installed by a builder and have had it just over 2 years. During the first year, I noticed that the touch screen seemed to be randomly selecting items, but though I might be accidentally brushing the touch screen as I opened the door, so I didn't think anything of it.
Summary: We bought a home which had this beautiful looking microwave. Four months in we started having problems. Primarily the display would turn off making the microwave non-functional. After a month of this, it stopped working sporadically and went completely non-functional.
Summary: This unit has worked quite well for the 12+ months I have installed it. The microwave section seems powerful and full of useful features. And the convection features are great. BUT, for one thing. The convection section on mine constantly cooks 50 degrees cooler than the thermostat is set for.
Summary: I bought the model previous to this (KHMS2050SSS-3) in March of 2012. Looks good, big, cooked great while it worked, lots of features. Quality is TERRIBLE, believe the reviews here and everywhere else and STAY AWAY!!!! If possible I would rate this thing a zero based on price vs quality.
Excerpt: I love this microwave. It h.as an unusual shape that allows for a bigger interior with less exterior space. It looks great and works great. It is on the pricier side but well worth it.PerformanceHas many options and includes several additional pieces of equipment to bake, broil and fry.
Looks really cool, BUT the quality is sooooooo poor...

Summary: We've had this microwave for almost 3 years now. The micro works, the same as any other microwave, but the fan attached to it has been making a rattling sound since the day one and now BOTH 'hood' lights are broken, too, and they're not easy to replace.
Summary: We've purchased all Kitchen aide for new house based off of some consumer review (that I'll never use again). However, not one of our KA purchases - microwave, the range, dishwasher or fridge lasted before there was an issue. Most of the cases, the problem was electrical.
Excerpt: I have had this microwave oven for about a year now. I have been extremely pleased with it. No mechanical problems or other discernible issues. I noticed another reviewer mentioned needing an extended warranty, but I haven't had any issues that have required me to contact the manufacturer in any...
Excerpt: This KitchenAid microwave has been just the microwave oven I need for every day use. It has touch tone buttons. I use the defrost feature quite often when I forget to thaw something for dinner.
Summary: This is my 2nd microwave of this model. After multiple repairs to the first we finally were told it could no longer be repaired. Fortunately we had bought the extended warranty after several problems with this appliance.
