You can select countertop placement or achieve a sleek built-in look with the additional trim kit. This microwave oven pairs beautifully with appliances in our Euro Style suite.

  • Two-Stage Memory Programming - This convenient feature allows you to program two consecutive cooking cycles-with different times and power levels-without having to stop and reprogram the microwave oven during cooking.
  • 1.6 Cu. Ft. Oven Capacity - This microwave oven's exceptionally spacious interior accommodates a variety of dishes and cookware sizes.
  • 1,200-Watt Power Output - This luxury microwave offers an impressive 1,200 watts of power, along with exceptional cooking and heating performance.
  • 10 Power Levels - Designed to offer exceptional versatility, this microwave's ten different power levels allow you to more precisely tailor the level of cooking power to what you're making.
  • Auto Sensor Reheat - An intuitive sensor in the microwave oven detects humidity released by food and programs the appropriate remaining cooking time, for superior results.
  • Auto Defrost - This setting streamlines the defrosting process by automatically adjusting defrosting times and power levels based on the food type and its weight.
  • Electronic Touch Controls with Scrolling Display - Electronic touch controls with scrolling vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) effortlessly navigate you through cooking options step-by-step.
  • One-Touch Start - A single touch is all that's needed to start cooking.
  • Add 30 Seconds Touch Pad - This convenient option lets you easily select an additional 30 seconds to your cooking time.
  • Popcorn Function - A sensored microwave oven function that determines when popcorn is finished popping.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you. Please consult a sales associate about delivery options.

Disappointing microwave.

Submitted by SFM - 9/3/2017

I bought this microwave because it matched the Jenn Aire Refrigerator. However, based on the price I expected more. The door shuts so loudly no matter how you try to close it quietly (it clunks into place). And the clock display is very hard to read no matter what angle you view it. It would also be great if there was an add a minute (not 30 second) button.

No, I do not recommend this product

Heats ok. No parts available for this unit.

Submitted by Dale Hayes - 8/24/2017

Came with new built house. Builder put Jenn-Air in. I like the other appliances but this one seems low end. No backlighting on control panel / difficult to see labels and buttons in low light. Door latch failed after about a year of light use. There are NO parts available for this unit. Could not order new door latch parts. However, Jenn-Air stood behind it and paid to have it replaced at no cost to us. I appreciated them standing behind their product. I am concerned about how long this unit will survive. It is hard for me to believe that Jenn-Air would have a disposable appliance with no parts available. I guess that is the nature of microwave ovens these days.

Not what I wanted

Submitted by TxGirl - 7/31/2017

This was not the microwave I wanted, but the cut out size and color selection in what I did want is not made. There is nothing new or special about this microwave, and the trim kit is horribly designed. It stands away from the cabinet, and there is an open area on both sides where the cutout can be seen. I am very disappointed in this piece of our purchase, but all of my appliances are black, and the upgraded microwave to fit a 27 inch space does not come in black. WHY?!?!?

No, I do not recommend this product

Attractive and efficient

Submitted by Batman - 3/30/2017

I am amazed at how quiet this operates and how well it heats food. The only downside is the pushbuttons are small and hard to read. I would not recommend for those with aging eyesight.

So far, so good!

OK - basic microwave. Heats evenly. Hard to see button labels - no backlighting. No way to mute tones. Need owners manual to know what some options do and mean.

Great Style Microwave

Submitted by Christopher - 2/6/2017

The microwave is meant to be an above-cabinet install. Instead the builder placed it below counter. Not the intended design I'm sure. Difficult to read control panel. Otherwise a great design and look.

Yes, I recommend this product


Submitted by BobO - 1/19/2017

The control panel is hard to read the bottom of the door has sharp edges

Replacement microwave for prior Jennaire which lasted 19 yrs

Submitted by Laurel A. Spear - 1/8/2017

Enjoy all our Jennaire products. However this new microwave has small characters on the touchpad that are difficult to read and should be backlit. Also miss the one touch buttons for "drink", "dinner plate", etc.

Yes, I recommend this product

Powerful microwave

Submitted by Jill Out West - 12/8/2016

Solid microwave built to last. Quality materials and heats food quickly. Don't care for the way you choose to set it for lower than 100% power -- is confusing. But otherwise we're very happy with it. It even has a lock on it for child safety which is important since it's installed at knee level.

Yes, I recommend this product

Looks nice, but...

Submitted by Larry K - 12/1/2016

The dark gray text on the black control panel is very difficult to see. We need to put a light on in the room in the daytime just to be able to make out where the settings and numbers are located.

Yes, I recommend this product

High quality-Low ease of use

Satisfied in all aspects of design EXCEPT one major flaw -- it is extremely difficult to read the display!

Great Microwave

Nice microwave, very quiet and really strong! Only issue I have is my door is uneven when it closes and doesn't line up properly.

Good over, but buttons needs to be worked on

Submitted by vnysmnn - 10/25/2016

I got this as part of new house. It looks excellent and heats fast than previous microwave. But this does heat unevenly. One issue that is making me write this review - During house warming party, someone with big nails tried to operate this microwave. Buttons on microwave has plastic on them. Due to big nails, some of the plastic came out. Now microwave looks ugly. There are air pockets between plastic and button base, dust started gathering within a month. So folks looking to buy, consider this as an issue. Not sure if plastic can be replaced.

No, I do not recommend this product

Would not buy again

Submitted by Jerry vecchiarelli - 9/9/2016

I would not buy this model again

Submitted by Ken - 8/19/2016

I was replacing a jenn air microwave that was 20 years old. I wanted to match my jenn air oven and other appliances. I could not find one of the same dimensions as my older one so I had to settle for a smaller one to fit my opening which required a new trim set. Unfortunately I did not have the dealer unbox and demonstrate before I purchased it. The writing on the display is so small with dim colors that I can't read without bright light and reading glasses. Also the color of the clock did not match my oven display. Otherwise it works fine. I relied too much on the satisfaction I had with previous jenn air oven.

No, I do not recommend this product

Very Unhappy Customer

Submitted by Suzanne Utzke - 6/19/2016

My comments are above.....I'm not happy with the front of the microwave. The display panel plastic is cut on the "start" button as well as on a number button. We have only had the microwave about a month. We are senior citizens and not careless with our use. Also, the extra installation plastic package that we bought had several scratches in it when it was taken out of the box. It should have had a plastic stuck on it like the microwave did to avoid scratches. I would like to have someone come to look at the front of my new microwave and make some corrections. We also have a Jenn-Air cook top and oven. This microwave is not up to Jenn-Air quality.

No, I do not recommend this product

Display too small. Hard to read.

Submitted by Irene Lavaysse - 6/5/2016

We just did a remodel in our kitchen and I have always been happy with JennAir. We purchased all new appliances. I must say I didn't get to see a sample of the microwave at the store only a catalog purchase. I'm very disappointed in the display window. The font is much too small and too light to read without turning on a kitchen light and my putting on my reading glasses. I also think there are too many options in which to use or are needed.

No, I do not recommend this product

Good product with a very poor and hard to read display

Submitted by Stephen Stewart - 5/21/2016

For the most part this micro works great. The bad part (and reason I would not buy it again) is that I cannot see the display so I have no idea what button to hit. Have had to keep a flashlight close by.

No, I do not recommend this product


Submitted by Customer - 4/6/2016

The window steams-up so that you can't see food. Customer service said it was normal. My many other microwaves have not. Maybe only the expensive ones do??

It's a Microwave

Submitted by Grace Lou - 2/19/2016

It functions fine, but we just use it to warm things up.... Unfortunately, the trim kit did NOT fit, so it just sits in the opening of the cabinets.

Yes, I recommend this product


Submitted by Lori - 12/28/2015

I bought this microwave during my kitchen remodel to match the other appliances. It is nice looking, but the door is clunky to open and close. Not what I expected given the price. It does not change, however, the performance which is good.

No, I do not recommend this product

Great Microwave

Life Saver For A Small Kitchen

Submitted by Tony - 11/2/2015

During our recent remodeling project, we needed a sleek looking micro wave to fit in our island. This Jenn - Air microwave we purchased is a space saver, life saver for any small kitchen. It's looks great and functions great!

Yes, I recommend this product


Submitted by Maggie - 10/29/2015

The microwave is everything I expected it to be. We didn't need a new one, but we were converting over to stainless appliances so we bought this one to pair with our new oven. We haven't had any problems with it. I have noticed that it's quieter than our old one.

Replacement Micro-wave

Submitted by Dick - 10/28/2015

Purchased this product almost a year ago and company shipped to my remote location in the U.P. of Michigan. Product replaced a built in, 20 year old, unit like it was the original and has operated at a high level since.

Yes, I recommend this product

Very happy with my purchase

Submitted by Bert Dunn - 10/27/2015

I replaced my 20 year old Jenn Air microwave because all of a sudden it stopped working. This one is so much nicer because it has a carousal and is so much quieter. The only problem was that the unit was 3" smaller and took some work to make it look good in the space over the Jenn Air wall oven.

Yes, I recommend this product

Right Fit!

Submitted by Hammer - 10/27/2015

I bought this unit to replace my prior built in microwave, a unit that lasted for over 17 years. The old unit was still in good working order except for the ware and tear on the inside. The dimensions of the new unit match the old one, so it saved me having to have a remodel done. The only con so far is that I am disappointed with the control panel for the new unit! The old unit, I was able to use the panel even without having any of the lights on in the kitchen, however the new one I need the lights on, glasses on and sometimes a flashlight! Also I wish the old trim kit would fit, the new one was a little more difficult to install. All would be good if this new unit lasts as long as my prior one.

Yes, I recommend this product

Good Basic Microwave

Submitted by Lisa B - 10/20/2015

Heats up things very quickly. Does a good job. The key pad isn't illuminated which makes it difficult to select buttons when placed on a shelf below the counter top.

Nice Microwave but the built-in kit is much too large

Submitted by Stacey C - 10/20/2015

We use this microwave as a built-in unit in our island. While the microwave is very nice and looks great the built-in kit is much too large. It is so large that we were unable to use the drawer front for the under microwave drawer which was a first for our contractor. We had to have a custom drawer front made in order to accommodate the size of the built-in kit.

Yes, I recommend this product

Not for people with eyesight issuew

Submitted by Keith H - 10/20/2015

I found the buttons extremely hard to see, they are black on black> I am sure this is a design feature to hide the buttons. I found it was helpful to keep a flashlight handle to be able to see the buttons to use the microwave

No, I do not recommend this product
