Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by anias Great product for a good price, make sure you measure your space well!
We upgraded our kitchen and purchased all Maytag appliances. Microwave has lots of awesome features, it comes with laminated cheat sheet we put on inside of one of the cabinet door for tips on length times and power options. One thing I am not sure if I am happy about is the fact that it is sticking out a little bit more than I'd like it too and it hangs lower than the previous one as well. We had to remove one tiny row of our glass backsplash to have it properly installed (see pic). Overall I am happy, it is great appliance, just remember, measure twice!

Remodeled our kitchen 2 months ago, when with all stainless Maytag appliances .. this is the best of the bunch. Love the stainless interior and it has plenty of room for larger items. The motion of the tray is different as it doesn't spin in a circle. Unlike our old unit, defrosting food, means defrosting and not cooking. No more semi cooked food after defrosting, sensors work well when heating up plates or popcorn. It gets used a lot, and so far has held up to the traffic. I would recommend this unit to a friend.

This microwave by far exceeded my expectations. It cooks what I need beautifully. I read a review how the light in the back didn't light up the front very well but I have not had that problem. I find the rear-located light to be bright enough to light up the front area as well as the back area.
I love the stainless steel interior of this product. And it is almost fun watching the plates go in rectangle inside of just spinning in a circle. Haven't used the kid menu or the snack menu yet but I am sure it will work wonderfully!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FloJean I'm impressed!
This is a well-designed an stylish microwave. Great features although some of them like the kid menu are useless if you do not have children. It is very quiet and installing it was a breeze; just call on a friend for help. No need to spend $79 for installation.

We love this microwave. Full stainless steel inside and out makes it looks very beautiful and expensive. We were shopping for a different model and brand when we went to home depot to look at the microwaves the store had on display. We checked various price range items including expensive ones and were not impressed until we saw this Maytag model. Now, after a couple of weeks we are happy and think we made a right choice. There are some microwaves with a price close to a $1,000 which you can’t even compare with this one.

We are very pleased with the Maytag2.0 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave Oven. Easy to use, looks great in our kitchen and the wife cannot wait to replace all of our appliances with Maytag. Home Depot delivered and installed it. The installation team showed up on time, worked fast, cleaned up and did a great job!

Great features and performance so far , considering we have only had the microwave for several weeks so it's at the microwaves early stage with us so far. The microwave has many sensing controls in it's different cycles . So reading up on how each function works for your cooking requirement's will need some user manual reading time. One nice feature is how the venting sysem will automatically come on without manually turning it on. It senses heat from something being cooked on the stove top and will automatically shut off when the cooking has stopped. I like that feature. In the installation instructions in my opinion, show an electric top stove for the installation dimensions. I may be wrong but you can look up the installation instructions on line through Home Depot's products site for the particular model microwave you may be considering for purchase. (very helpful especially if you are installing the microwave yourself). I have a gas stove and my installation dimensions are as follow's. Their dimensions show 30" is typical for 66" installation height from floor to bottom of your cabinet. Mine was 71 1/4" from floor to bottom of cabinet and 35" from stove top to bottom of cabinet. that left me roughly about 17 1/2" from gas stove top to bottom of microwave. I added another 5" to their installation dimensions and my wife seem's to think that the microwave handle can get uncomfortably hot to the touch for her liking while cooking, but does manage opening and closing microwave with out any problems of burning her hand while cooking on the stove. Something you may want to think about during your installation dimensions. F.Y.I the dimensions I mentioned here for my installation purposes also leaves me with plenty of room for a large pot for cooking on the stove top also. For my venting design I used 4" round vent pipe and connections wich work and vent just finewith this blower motor. In my oppinion the 6" piping they reccomend for the microwave is overkill and 4" piping works especially good with homes of older construction. Pay close attention to microwave dimensions as they pertain to your installation dimensions and what type of gas or electric appliance you are using below your microwave hood combination. Don't forget about the height your comfortable with when using your over the range microwave and the clearance you will be happy with when needing to use larger pots on the stove top also. I hope this is helpful to the D.Y.I er's out there who want to put in an over the range microwave hood combination in their home. I will be back if this microwave's features and performance do not meet up to the expectations I expect to get from this MayTag model #MMV5208WS-1 Right now it's still early on in owning it and I need more time and use of this particular model to give you an honest review of it's performance. So far, knock on wood , there hasn't been any major issue's as of yet with it's features , performance , customer service , or the shipping condition from the warehouse of this MayTag model.

I've had this for about 3 months. I can't complain. It has good capacity, isn't too loud. It looks great and so far it's easy to keep clean. It seems to heat everything I've cooked so far very evenly. It doesn't stick out so much that it blocks your view of the stove. The light settings are adequate and the fan works pretty well with multiple settings. The installation was straight forward and not difficult. I installed it myself in about 1.5 hours taking my time.
