    Pros: attractive design; user friendly console; lots of preset function keys
    Cons: None

    Summary: WHAT LED ME TO THIS MICROWAVE? I have never been much of a chef. Not because I can't cook, but because I don't seem to ever find the time to cook. Not to mention that when I actually do cook, I hate to clean up! Since the oven that ... read more

    Summary: Save your money.  I bought this overly priced wannabe from KitchenAid and it does not measure up to the appliances they manufactured ten years ago.  The handle and hood broke because of the cheap plastic makeup.  Called KitchenAid and they ... read more

    Pros: Worked well for 2-3 years before falling apart and becoming a self-actuated appliance
    Cons: Guaranteed to fall apart  due to ill-conceived engineering/substandard components.  A money pit of an appliance.

    Summary: Overall, I would have to give KitchenAIDS a FAILING GRADE on the the KitchenAidKHMS155LSS. Has anyone found a different brand that works and has the same dimensions?  To echo parts of this thread, vent cover is cheapo plastic and breaks ... read more
