My new Maytag OTR SS Micro-Hood. I love it so far, it is nearly silent and heats FAST and even. Matches my WP stove well also.

Looks very nice, and a 4 speed fan, interesting. I see you use 24 hr time.

What kind of fridge do you have? I like your KitchenAids too. Very nice.

It is a Whirlpool built Kenmore and I love it. More space than I could imagine in the freezer with the ice maker in the door. Full size frozen pizzas can be laid flat on any shelf. The multi level LED lighting is great too.

Yes I use 24 HR time. It just makes more sense than AM/PM. So something happened @ 8:00, is that AM or PM? Makes much more sense to say it happened @ 0800 or 2000 hours, there can be no confusion.

The KA mixer was a Christmas gift from my parents in 1992. I have even used it in restaurants I worked at and still not one repair. (Long live Hobart design). The FP was a wedding gift(Thank God my wife hasn't stuffed me in it, LOL.

I thought I saw the Kenmore logo and handles, nice choice.

I've thought about getting a KitchenAid mixer, but I use one so rarely that I haven't done so yet. When I do mix, my Mixmaster suits it just fine for what I do, it has dough hooks but if I were to make bread I'd probably get a KA for sure. I do use my KA blender from time to time though.

One day, when I have my own place, I definitely want a side by side with ice and water in the door. Always liked those since I was a kid.

Stainless interior is easy to clean, and acids from kitchen towels won't ruin it, like they can painted ones. Kudos to the Whirlpool/Maytag/Kitchen Aid line.

Nick, congratulations and beautiful, smart looking.  Does the glass shelf do any kind of movement when it's cooking?  Just curious as it's elevated, but being rectangle, I cannot see how it can rotate.

Bob: Thank you.

The glass shelf has a 4 way oscillation. It moves front to back and side to side. I'm told this is a TOL feature to allow the use of rectangular cookware or multiple pieces to maximize oven capacity.

I'm looking to add a MT micro to match my MT stove once I start my kitchen renovation, which seems to be on the revolving "next year" plan.

Whirly, is it vented to the outdoors? How would you rate the sound of the fan? Great looking unit.
