Just as good as Architect I that we owned before

We owned the Architect I series microwave/convection oven for over 12 years. It finally quit working (electronics) so we searched for a similar KitchenAid microwave since we were so happy with the first one. We found this Architect II microwave. Even though it is not the newest model, it does the best job of matching our KitchenAid oven located directly below the microwave. These KitchenAid products are excellent and we will continue to use their products due to their performance, dependability, and looks.

Bought this about 9 months ago as part of our total kitchen remodeling. Annoying "feature" is that the fan stays ON if you let the timer cycle to complete even if it is a very short (say 10 second) operation. However, manually cancelling the warming operation stops the fan! Apparently it is a design feature, but from an engineering standpoint a very lousy one! Extremely annoying. Also, control panel is very poorly designed. Writings are too small and buttons too close together while there is plenty of blank space that could have been used for much better layout. Will not buy another one of these again, even the newer models!
