Rated 4 out of 5Â by Qtmstr Microwave for the new kitchen
The installation instructions were easy to read and installation was easy. We had the microwave ready to operate within 30 minutes of unpacking. The operating instructions were simple and the enclosed laminated guide made it a joy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DFlo Nice looking Maytag microwave and beautiful design inside and out.
Had it for 2 months so far. Great looking and installed easily with existing hardware from last unit. Like the stainless steel interior.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jaws79 Great product!
Previously owned an LG and it quit. I think it was the magnetron and it was under warranty. It would cost more to repair than replace. I loved the side to side table and looked for another like it. Did not want to risk same company and checked Consumer Reports which rated this a 'Best Buy'. This not only has side to side table, it also goes in a small circular motion. It allows you to use large dishes and rectangular ones as well. It is stainless steel inside which I didn't know and is easy to operate and clean! I love the option that allows you to change power setting during cooking which I have never seen before. I have not had it long but use a microwave to cook a lot and really love this one! This product costs a lot less than the one I replaced and is so much more. If you want an over the stove microwave, this is the one!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TomF Great microwave, at any price!
When our Kenmore Elite failed after 9 years, we looked hard for a micro-hood, over-range replacement with the "back-and-forth" tray action, and this one fit the bill. Turns out that the Wide Glide tray goes from side-to-side AND back-to-front i.e. it has a better range of movement vs. even our old oven. Other nice features, some of which were not clear from the Specs or User Guide:
- Exhaust (we left to Recirc) is hidden and straight up from the front-top; thus the oven has a boxier "look" to it but is easy to get used to
- Powerful fan; moves alot more air than our old unit
- Multi-power; set from 10-100% in 10% increments; magnetron operates continuously afaict
- Add 30sec (our old one had Add 60--we like 30 better!)
- Hidden sensor measures air temp thus food temp
- Time-of-day timers for both vent and light; we set the light to come-on early AM so we can find our way to the coffee maker in the morning!
- On a cycle completion, waits for more TIME input in case you want to cook some more i.e. keeps all your cook settings in waiting. Changes to Clock again by itself after a few minutes.
- Beeps at you if you've forgotten and left food in the oven!
I had a heckuva time installing it (manufactured April 2012 btw, brand-spanking-new) because the underside of our wall cabinets is not flat, so measuring precisely to drill the 3 upper holes was difficult, and the paper template no help. The CARDBOARD template for the back wall could have been paper, and they should have used the Cardboard as a template for the upper holes--they got that backward. And be Carefull with the packaging; it's not obvious that the box top is a template!
Finally, the unit is fairly loud, but that's because the fan runs continuously when the oven is cooking. But we'd rather have the fan run vs. having the oven fail prematurely (as our old one did) because the insides were inadequately cooled. With our old unit the fan ran only when the innards got very (very) hot.
But this is one cool microwave; we're very happy. And less money than we expected to pay. Great delivery service from Home Depot too, including haul-away of the old micro. Thanks HD!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by KC11 Broke-replacing in less than 3 years
The plastic around the window has chipped, cracked, peeled off since day one, so it looked horrible for the last two years but I didn't want to replace a new built in appliance. Well lucky for me it stopped working completely so I have no excuse. $300+ appliance shouldn't die in just a few years.
