The approximate dimensions of this microwave are; 36" wide x 18-1/8" high x 18-5/8" (at the center) deep. Instead of the traditional flat look, this also has a more modern convex look to it, where at the outer edges (right and left sides) where this microwave touches the cabinets, it is 15" deep at the corners. Even though this microwave is larger than all of predecessors, it still only uses 120V to operate it. This has a "TruCapture" ventilation system (new and more efficient to the industry)which will exhaust 300 CFM. You will need to make sure that the outlet that you plug this into is inside of the upper cabinet.

Some of the Features that this has, is 1200 watts of power, soften and melt cycles, boil and simmer functions, an accessory pan which will allow browning, crisping, and pan frying. The insides of this microwave has an easy to clean non-stick surface. A couple of other features is an auto cook cycle, auto reheat, and auto defrost. For filtering the air that comes out preventing any smoke, odors, and grease, a good filtration system is a must, this microwave has two charcoal filters to help you out. This microwave is stainless steel in color and has a very large smoke glass metal shielded viewing window, which is 7" high x 18-3/3" wide. The area inside is a very roomy 2.0 cubic feet of cooking area. This also has a sensor cooking system that will sense how much moisture and humidity that food emits while it is cooking, this sensor will adjust the time while it is cooking, and all of the controls are very sensitive to the touch. No more pushing hard on the number or function pads like you are used to doing, just barely touch these pads and away you go.

Unlike older microwave ovens, this model will allow you to turn off the turntable for manual cooking cycles. To turn this off, there is a turn off touch pad right on the control panel, just touch and select the turn off turntable position. Although, when you are finished cooking manually, the turntable will be reset to the on position automatically. If you need to turn the turntable back on, just repeat the directions and hit the on function.

Inside of this microwave you will get a oven rack, and a 16" turntable. A couple of options that are not usually offered to older models is the child lock and delay start functions. The sensor touch control pad is not located on the left or right side which you may be used to, it is strategically located in the front center for easier access and looks. On the lower left side there are three buttons which control the Halogen cook-top lights that is located underneath to allow you to see what you are doing on top of your range. This button will operate at high, medium, and low. The other two buttons operate the vent fan, the left of the two will operate high, medium, low and off functions. The other button will go straight to either maximum fan position or the off position.

Inside of the microwave you will receive a cooking rack and a non-stick browning pan and handle. The rack is not made to set on top of the turntable, there are 4 little hooks already installed for this rack to set on. They recommend that if you are going to use the browning pan do not use it on top of the rack only on top of the turntable.

Kitchen Aid Has Made Cooking More futuristic
Whenever you start to take on a project such as remodeling your kitchen, you probably won't realize how big of a job this actually will be. But, once you start you usually open up a big can of worms. What I mean, is that since the only reason that you may want to take on a project of this intensity, is if your wife is standing over you are sleeping with a butcher knife or a baseball bat. She called it her little friend, but that was persuasion enough for me. What she did not tell me is that …
