KitchenAid YKHMS2040BS Over the Range Microwave - Our Review
The KitchenAid YKHMS2040BS microwave conveniently installed over most ranges; removing the microwave from the countertop. This stylish, space-saving appliance provides a 2.0 cubic-foot cooking cavity while adding beautiful stainless steel accents to the kitchen.
This powerful 1000-Watt microwave features a stoppable glass turntable. When the turntable is switched on, it rotates foods around the interior of the microwave cavity in a circular motion. The constant circular motion promotes more even, uniform cooking results, while ensuring there are no cold spots.
KitchenAid works hard to provide outstanding cooking results from the microwave. To promote impeccable cooking results, this microwave features several sensor features: auto-cook, reheat, defrost cycles, quick defrost cycle, and soften and melt cycles.
The YKHMS2040BS auto-cook feature uses built-in sensors to adjust the time and power level automatically based on the quantity, weight, and humidity released. Thanks to this microwave's innovative sensor cooking feature, foods with come out better than ever before.
The reheat function of this advanced microwave uses built-in sensors to monitor the humidity level being put off by the food. Through monitoring the humidity level in the food, the microwave is able to adjust the time and power level to match the cooking needs.
KitchenAid's defrost cycles, and quick defrost cycle allow you to defrost food within minutes. The defrost cycles use the quantity and weight of the food to determine the ideal time and power level to return foods to their original state within minutes. Its quick defrost cycle allows you quickly defrost up to one pound of frozen food, faster than you imagined. You will no longer need to change dinner plans due to forgetting to thaw food from the freezer.
This microwave soften and melt cycles use a low-power level to delicately soften butter, ice cream, melt chocolate, or other delicate food items. You no longer need to check the microwave every ten seconds to make sure you are not scorching chocolate or burning butter.
For added convenient KitchenAid included an add 30-second button. A quick push of this button on the control panel allows you to quickly and easily add 30 seconds onto the cycle time.
Do not worry, KitchenAid did not forget to include a popcorn sensor! The handy popcorn sensor helps prevent microwave-able popcorn from burning in the microwave, while producing more fully popped popcorn kernels.
If that is not enough, this microwave is equipped with a built-in ventilation system. The ventilation system of the YKHMS2040BS exhausts up to 300 CFM, quickly removing grease, smoke, and odor from the air. It includes one charcoal filter to capture odors, and two grease filters. When it is time to clean the microwave, simply toss the filters into the dishwasher for a fast thorough clean.

I was able to handle the installation myself, a 32 year old single woman. I just simply followed the instructions KitchenAid included with the microwave, and everything went smoothly.
Once I had it installed, and began using it, I fell in love with the cooktop exhaust, and sensor cook cycles.
This microwave does everything KitchenAid says it does. And it does it well. I would buy this microwave again, and again.
The quick defrost cycle is my life saver! More often than not, I am guilty of leaving dinner in the freezer until I am ready to prepare the meal. The quick defrost feature allows me to quickly and easily thaw meats in minutes. I honestly do not know how I survived without it before!
