Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

KitchenAid appliances are not reliable

Submitted by Tatiana - 4/14/2017

I bout 4.5 years ago and now need to buy a replacement. Apparently there is an unfixable damage that keeps burning the main board. KitchenAid response was that we should have purchased the extended warranty. 4 out of our 5 kitchen appliances have broken since we got them, which says a lot about the quality and reliability of the product. So far, we total over $13,000 in repair costs and damaged caused by its faulty products. Thankfully we have a good homeowners insurance!

Submitted by Jim L. retired - 11/29/2016

Had the motor on the turntable replaced within the first year which was covered by warranty. Just had to have the transformer replaced $282 (a third of the cost of the unit) it is only a year and a half old. Very disappointed in the product quality. I didn;t think I would ever say this but This will be my LAST Kitchenaid product.

Picked this microwave up from a deal of the day at HD and it has not disappointed my family. The smart technology really made the popcorn popping much easier. We are still learning the convection part but it works. Easy to install and when I was missing a couple bolts, KitchenAid service sent out missing part without delay.

Submitted by Mic - 11/4/2015

I love this microwave! This machine feels solid, not like many other expensive microwaves with clumsy doors and controls made of plastics. I just needed a microwave but stepped up to the included convection oven, It is a welcome addition and eliminated a less efficient toaster oven. Sensored cooking is a breeze and the timer controlled hood light is awesome! The four fan settings and the microwave are surprisingly quiet. I would buy again!!

Just bought this a couple of weeks ago. Installed it myself and it couldn't have been easier. You do need to people to hang it though. Have used it as regular microwave and it works great. Used the convection to bake a tube cake and wow did it cook it a lot less time. Just wish it came with a small cookbook for the convection so a new user could get used to this feature.

Great Microwave and Easy to Use

Submitted by The Millers - 10/12/2015

We have had the product for several weeks and we have had an opportunity to use most of the features. Our previous microwave was a bit more powerful but it frequently over-cooked, and sometimes burned our food. So far, this Kitchenaid has performed perfectly. Even though the handle design dates the product, we actually prefer the handle to the newer push button door openers. We used the convection bake feature and it worked as advertised. It appears we made an excellent choice.

Information on this is hard to find

Submitted by eschulze - 4/6/2015

We bought this off the floor because Lowes didn't have any Kitchenaid Microwaves other than this one that had been a display. So, no manual, recipe book, etc. We had professionals install it but we are a little freaked out by the screwed in piece of waxy cardboard on the right side as you face it opening the door. Is this right? I don't know because no manual that is online shows pictures or gives examples. We are afraid to use it for anything other than heating things up because we don't know how to work it and have no book online or in hand to tell us what to do. Such a bummer, we really want to enjoy this as much as our new double oven and cooktop and dishwasher....

New microwave is able complement to our new Kitchenaid appliances. Love the power! It also has a convection mode which will be very handy since we are a small household. Nice design. Put it to work immediately. We are on a bit of a learning curve regarding all the features but really liking the upgrade from our old basic. It's also larger inside which makes reheating casseroles a cinch. Our kitchen looks brand new with all our sleek new Kitchenaid appliances. Love they are USA made...another determining factor towards purchase. Once again, you get what you pay for.

Submitted by donotbother - 2/17/2015

I purchased this along with a refrigerator and stove. They are all just 1 year and 6months old. I've had to have the refrigerator replaced and now the microwave isn't working. That being said other than it looks very nice it doesn't stand the test of time. The directions that come with it aren't real clear either. I've tried to use the steamer basket and have yet to get something that comes out cooked correctly. Always overdone. Just unimpressed with KitchenAid as a whole. Sorry!
