This high-end brand sells electric wall ovens priced from $1,500 and gas, electric, and induction cooktops that cost $800 to $2,100. KitchenAid appliances are sold through Sears, home centers, and independent appliance retailers.
Width (in.) This measurement indicates the width of the front of the oven in inches. It does not indicate the necessary size of the cabinet cut-out, which is model dependent. Note that a wall oven will typically fit into the same size or wider cabinet.
Covered element Smooth cover or floor over the bottom baking element makes for easier cleanup of drips and spills.
Convection mode Has a convection feature that uses a fan or two to circulate heated air, and sometimes an extra heating element. The convection mode can be turned off if you prefer conventional cooking.
Temperature probe A temperature probe is an electronic thermometer that can be inserted into cuts of meat. It allows for the internal temperature of the food to be displayed on the control panel and for users to control the oven.
I love to bake deserts and breads. This oven had all the bells and whistles I was looking for and I was very excited to own it, not to mention how beautiful it is with the Cobolt Blue interior. but it has never baked evenly and would not reach the desired temp. I have returned it under the Lemon Law and hope the others with the same model# are Ok because it would have been a great oven to own.
How long have you owned it:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Could not close oven door. Serviceman could not fix because part ('right hand hinge receiver') is unavailable. KitchenAid (aka Whirlpool) said while the 'left hand' part is available the 'right hand' is 'obsolete. So for want of a $30 part, we have to buy a new oven!
