Microwave Strengths and Weaknesses
Cooking BETTER - Convection microwave oven that truly cooks and bakes in addition to standard microwave functions. Employs a fan to circulate hot air that browns and crisps meats or dishes. Cooks more quickly, evenly, and retains more flavor than a standard microwave.
Cost POOR - Each cubic foot of internal microwave oven capacity costs $1356. This price level is 546% higher than the average new built in microwave. Ranks in the bottom 1% of the built in microwave class with POOR affordability.  
Power FAIR - Maximum cooking power of 900 watts is 10% lower than the average new microwave oven. Ranks in the bottom 10% of new microwaves for FAIR power generation. Will generally take longer times to cook dishes and heat foods or beverages.  
Sensors BEST - Equipped with sensor cooking capability that helps do the thinking for you. Special sensors detect and monitor steam humidity levels. They automatically select the appropriate power and time required to cook, reheat, or defrost foods and drinks.
Features BEST - This KitchenAid microwave has 3 of the following special features that can make a difference - Staged Cooking: Yes | Even Cooking Tech: Yes | Keep Warm: Yes | Non-Stick Interior: No | Halogen Heat: No | Speed Cook: No.
Warranty GOOD - KitchenAid provides a standard one year limited warranty on the magnetron, one of the most expensive components in a microwave. The magnetron generates energy that radiates into the microwave cavity and heats the food or beverage.
