KitchenAid KHMS2040BSS Reviews & Ratings

KHMS2040BSS Architect Series II 30" Wide 2.0 cu. ft. Capacity, 1000 Watt Over the Range Microwave Oven, True 10-Level Power Control, Quick Defrost Cycle, Popcorn Sensor in Stainless Steel is rated 3.7143 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from High dollar Microwave We remodeled the kitchen and went all out on Kitchenaid appliances. The microwave is the biggest disappointment, It looks great, but does not perform as well as the GE countertop unit that we replaced and paid a third the price. In direct comparison, the Kitchenaid unit takes one, two, or even three minutes longer to heat frozen dinners and to steam vegetables than the GE. The beeper or tone that it made when we got it turned into a sick squeal about a month after we started using it. I have run all the tests to see if it is producing 1000 watts, and it will boil a cup of water in three minutes.... seems slow for a "high power" unit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product lacks features that I had on another microwave 6 years ago. Not impressive at all--although the pricing is impressive! To review the microwave, refrigerator, and stove that I have recently purchased is painful inasmuch as we spent a goodly amount of money for quality which I don't feel I have with these latest appliances. I have owned Kitchenaid back to 1968 with my first dishwasher--couldn't have found a better brand. I repeatedly replaced every dishwasher with your brand until we bought a house with a brand new GE already installed 30 years later. However, I did have to buy a new refrigerator for the new house and got a Kitchenaid in 1997 which I just replaced although it was working just fine. I gave it away and it is still working. Your quality has plummeted in my opinion which is a shame. It is very doubtful that I'll ever replace with Kitchenaid again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works Well The grayish lettering used on the touch pads against the black background of the menu panel makes it extremely difficult to read what is printed on each keypads in the day or night time unless the kitchen ceiling lights are on. This is very frustrating! Why wasn’t the menu panel designed so that each touchpad is illuminated with a soft light similar to or a bit dimmer than the clock? Using a whiter print lettering might also be an option to improve readability in low light. Also, after warming something up using the time/power level touch pads, why is it necessary for me to press the stop pad after the warming cycle is finished if I am satisfied with the temp of what I warmed up? Why doesn’t the display cycle reset itself automatically to the clock display if no new warming instructions are re-entered within 30 seconds or so?.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great This is a good-looking microwave and works as expected. The door is scheduled to be replaced under warranty because there is a bubble in the plastic film that covers the inside of the door. This same film wasn't adhered down around the entire edge. It seemed like it was stuck down and then pulled up and replaced. Not quite perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with my purchase...with an exception. After much research I decided this microwave would work for my needs. The only thing I wish I had known was when your cooking on the stove under the microwave and the pot is steaming, the microwave fan turns on and it is very loud. KitchenAid needs to work on that function.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Series has changed handle on microwave, The series has changed design handle on the microwave making it not matching on series. The Architesture series handles do not match. After discussion with dealer and kitchenaid, we were informed of the change. Last time we purchase from Kitched Aid BUYER BEWARE
