I own the Kitchenaid KBMR1454R. I assume this (the KBMR1454SSS) is a different version of the same model (SSS standing for stainless steel trim. I have a serious problem with my microwave, and I caution anyone considering this model to investigate the functioning of the cooling fan. If the interior of the oven gets overheated, the cooling fan comes on. It either shuts down operation in the middle of your cooking cycle, or remains on after your cycle is finished. When this happens the microwave is unusable for as much as five minutes until the interior cools and the fan goes off. It takes almost nothing to make this happen. The other day I defrosted 3 meatballs (small ones!) on low power for 3 minutes. The cooling fan came on and I had to wait 5 minutes before heating up the sauce to put them in. In the meantime, my kids were climbing the walls. If I make bacon, I have to make it in shifts, allowing the microwave to cool down in between each 4 slices. It's impossible to defrost a single-serving bowl of soup in one shot. It's clear to me that the engineers who designed this microwave never tried to use it to cook for a busy family. It's very expensive, relative to other ovens, but I splurged because I use a microwave so frequently. It was a huge waste of money, and I caution anyone who plans to use a microwave with any frequency against buying it.

I've had this microwave for two years and have not had any problems with it. It is mounted above a Kitchenaid wall oven and is built in, so the two units look like they belong together. We have two kids. We use this microwave for everything you normally use a microwave for.

This unit comes with a built in kit that can be used for a 27 or 30 inch opening. My unit is in a 30 inch opening.
I had to write this review to help counteract another. Perhaps they have a problem unit. Mine has not been a problem at all and looks great.

This came preinstalled in a new house we bought. Was ok for 2 years but now only 1/2 the LED segments light up and we lose another segment nearly every day (fairly sure the display will fail completely in 2-3 months). Called Kitchenaid to check on warranty figuring this was part of the touch panel that had a 5 year warranty but they say no. Costs $300-$500 to fix depending on which part failed. Still debating whether to pay for the repair or replace it with a cheaper builtin (quality can't be worse than Kitchen-aid right?). Can't say that Kitchen-aid's competitors are any better, but I can't see how they'd be worse.

Please do not waste your money on this microwave. We purchased ours from Lowes as part of a kitchen remodel in July 2008. It was expensive, but we believed in the quality of the KitchenAid brand, and we were buying a KitchenAid range, hood and double oven, and wanted our appliances to match. From the start, we had issues. It took a long time to heat things. For example, a mug of water heats in 1:30 in other microwaves, but took at least 3 minutes in this one. It also wouldn’t cook a bag of microwave popcorn. In May of 2012, less than two years after we bought it, the magnetron went out. It seemed like it was running, but nothing would heat. We called KitchenAid, but they wouldn’t do anything because the warranty was only a one-year warranty. They offered to sell us a service plan and additional one-year warranty for more than $300. We declined and went through our home warranty instead. Now here we are, March 2014, and the magnetron has gone out AGAIN. We called KitchenAid again. They act like our microwave is just old, as if their microwaves aren’t build to withstand four years of normal use. Again they offered to sell us the service plan and extended warranty. I am disgusted. We’ll never buy a KitchenAid appliance again, and I would strongly caution you against buying this piece of junk.

Our microwave broke in September (4 months out of warranty). Our repair people (recommended by KitchenAid) have been trying to fix since then (3+ months) - 7 service calls. Now the part will not be available until end of January (1 more month). Piece of unrepairable junk - would not recommend.
