  • Humidity Slide Control helps retain the flavor and texture of different foods by letting you control the amount of moisture inside the drawer

Dinner is Served
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is our first time using a warming draw but it is a great addition. We all know that timing all the different dishes during dinner is difficult. This allows you to prep and keep warm until everything else is ready to serve. It also is spacious and can even fit a full size pizza box..

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Replaced double oven using oven/microwave combo. Warming drawer filled gap in cut out. Had to install a shelf Over warming oven and order heat deflector before they would install oven. Shelf added Was not flush with face of cabinet which turns out to be ok as the heat deflector fills gap between so you can’t see any space. Love the look and happy with decision. Added pic of heat deflector.

Great addition to kitchen
I’ve always wanted a warming oven. In our last house we had a hood with infrared lights that functioned that way. This warming drawer is even better with more features. I’m attempting to make clotted cream in it as I write this. My one criticism is that the actual temperatures of the settings are not available. I needed to know that for the clotted cream and so had put a thermometer in the oven.

Too bad it is only in stainless
I would have purchased this to below my Kitchenaid built-in oven/microconvection combo, but it only comes in stainless. I am purchasing my built-ins in black stainless. Even if it came panel ready, that would have been ok too. Disappointed.

Ours broke after 11 months of use.
We built a new home and moved in during Feb 2019. We bought this warming drawer. It broke during January. The builder checked it out and found the warming drawer broke with no explanation. By the time the builder jumped through the hoops with the seller and KitchenAid, they told us we missed reporting under warranty by one day and refused to replace it. They told us we are responsible for replacing it. This despite that closing on the house was in Feb and every other company starts the warranty on the date of closing, not the date they picked up the part to install. Either way, to have an appliance this expensive that lasted less than a year is pathetic. Very disappointed in KitchenAid.
