Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

The manufacturer's parts and labor warranty is typically for only 1 year but for as little as $110 for an appliance with a purchase price of under $500, you can have peace of mind for a total of five years. Kitchen package appliance coverage plans are available if you wish to protect multiple appliances at the time of purchase.

Did you know that the average cost for a service company to come to your home and diagnose an out-of-warranty appliance problem is $100.00. Once the problem is determined, there is the additional expense for parts and labor to resolve it. Appliance repairs can range between $150 and $500.

If you are concerned about spending money on a service contract you will never need, our New Leaf ServicePro extended service plans will refund 50% of the service contract purchase price to you if no covered appliances have service calls during the extended warranty coverage period. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Best Drawer Microwave (But Needs Improvement)

KRDR 11/21/2019

After checking out every drawer microwave sold in our area, my wife and I purchased a Bosch 800 Series Drawer Microwave for our new custom built home. We decided on the Bosch due to the brand's reputation for quality and the serious problems (flimsy control panels, sloppy door action, etc.) with every competing model. Over all we are pleased with our choice, but this model has room for improvement. What We Like: • Solid construction, door opens smoothly • Heats food rapidly and evenly • No flimsy flip-out control panels that can break • Matches our other Bosch appliances • Very easy to install What Needs Improvement: • Buttons can be frustrating due to somewhat small active area • Text on control panel is too small (especially if your eyes are 40+ years old) • These issues are worsened because the appliance must be mounted under a counter top If Bosch would address the relatively minor issues with the controls, they'd have a real winner on their hands. Even with these issues, I would definitely by the Bosch again. It's not perfect, but it's clearly better than the competition.

Pricey Garbage

Dani610 10/25/2019

This is a great microwave...when it works. Our first microwave we had for less then one month before it broke and filled our kitchen with smoke. Now 2 years later the replacement one no longer heats. These units are too expensive to breakdown the way they do. The company should offer a recall on these units and do right by their customers.

High Quality, Great Microwave

mjk7458 10/18/2019

We were somewhat unsure about moving to a drawer microwave in our kitchen island. Overall, we are very happy with the look, function, and quality of this microwave. It heats food quickly and has a large capacity inside for heating larger disher i.e. 9x13 baking dish. This is a very good microwave for a busy family.

Good microwave, but expensive

Atomic Kitchen Owner 8/25/2019

There's nothing special about this micorwave. It heats the food, but doesn't get it quite as hot as my old countertop microwave did. And that was a cheap one. This one was expensive. I got it because it's built in to the cabinets. Looks cool. There's no turntable inside.

Kim5678901 8/8/2019

We researched appliances before starting a kitchen remodel. Several people told us to go with Bosch. I'm so glad we did! We decided to put this in an island, got tired of lifting hot food in the air and going down. This works so much better. It is different how things get cooked in it also. We love it! Would buy again!!

This fabulous drawer microwave was the best investment for my kitchen remodel. It allowed more working counter space and is so convenient at drawer level. The MANY functions are very well thought out and perform perfectly. It's easy to clean and maintain. And in appearance it is clean, sleek and very well designed. Installation was a breeze with no issues, fit like a glove. I highly recommend this beauty!

Sleek Modern Microwave

momskitchen 7/11/2019

I love my Bosch Microwave drawer! So much better than the "above the stove" type models, which require lifting heavy dishes over your head, and which get super hot on the handle from the stove! This modern design fits perfectly in today's smooth, sleek kitchens. I just wish it came with a 2 year warranty (instead of 1 year) - at this cost I'm wondering about the company's confidence in the product. Overall, no issues so far (4 month usage).

Bought the Bosch microwave drawer about year ago. Because we were installing a microwave under a counter, the drawer design meant we did not have to bend to insert or take out a heavy dish. Design is sleek, operates well. The drawer is slower to close than a standard microwave. Not a huge deal.

Jason 9/17/2018

I bought this to hide my microwave from view in our island. I am an above average cook, and my friends and family enjoy my cooking. I didn't want a microwave above the stove to be the first thing they see. It looks great, does the heating as needed. Wished the door would have a reverse on it, as I don't always need it to open the entire way. Plenty of options for pre-programmed heating/melting/etc...

Flawless Operation for 14 Months

Mr Mike 7/27/2018

This appliance has performed flawlessly for over 14 months. The features work as advertised, especially the sensor cook and defrost. If you want to control the time and power level directly, setting the power level requires multiple button presses for low settings. My wife says I should always use the programmed settings such as "sensor defrost" but I like more control sometimes. Overall we have been very satisfied with the product.

Cooks food evenly although it takes a bit longer to heat than my old counter model. Expensive compared to a counter or over stove model. I don't like the controls - they are not illuminated and are impossible to see at night in the dark.

Have had this microwave for less than a year. The drawer comes out so jerky that if you have any liquid such as coffee or soup it will spill. Have tried to get this issue resolved but was told by customer service that this is normal for this microwave. My mother has the Thermador version and it has a much more smooth open.

Great potential, abysmal service

RB_CO 1/27/2018

We purchased this drawer microwave for our kitchen remodel last spring. Upon installation, we noticed that one of the little drawer rollers had fallen off. No big deal - we called Lowe's, where we'd purchased it, and they sent someone to replace the entire drawer (apparently the only fix for this problem). This took a few weeks, but we were still able to use the oven so it wasn't much of an inconvenience. A month later, we noticed that the oven would turn on, but would not heat food. This was a problem. We called Lowes, got the same repairman, who ordered a new heating unit, and after about three weeks, replaced it. All good, now, right? Not so much. Here we are, four months later, and the heating unit has once again failed. Unfortunately our new BFF/repairman has since gone out of business. And so, despite numerous calls to Lowes, who claim Bosch will not get back to them about a repair, and then more calls to the customer service department of Bosch themselves, who keep promising we'll be contacted within a day or two about a repair, here we sit. It's been nearly a month of waiting this time. The oven is less than a year old. Perhaps we got a lemon - it happens - but I'm incredibly disappointed in this company's customer service. Because of that I'm very unlikely to purchase any of their products again.

Simple and Modern

Victoria 1/18/2018

It's only been a few weeks since I bought it, but so far I love it! It's fairly easy to clean, easy to use, and modern. The turntable plate, however, stops spinning sometimes but just adjust it and it's working fine again. Other than that, I would recommend this item to a friend if they are ever looking for a new microwave :)

Mikeseg 11/27/2017

The first issue we experienced was that we had to manually close the drawer because when we pushed the button the drawer would close and then reopen. Now the microwave no longer heats the food at all. It was always weak but this is ridiculous. Unfortunately we bought it just over a year ago but just installed it a few months ago due to delays in remodeling our house. I hope Bosch does the right thing and supports its customers.

Looks are the only strong feature

wallcat 10/16/2017

I've had this for two years. If I were doing it over, I would get something else. This looks nice, but an ordinary, $100 counter-top microwave works better: Cooking performance: - The power is low. - Power distribution is uneven. It needs a turntable. We wound up getting one of those goofy, wind-up turntables (yes, someone still make those 1980s things). User experience: - Having to push a small button, which looks like all the other small buttons, to open or close it, and then having to wait for the powered drawer, is the price you pay for a clean look with no handle. I'm not sure it's worth it. - The powered drawer's motion is jerky. It starts at full speed and stops suddenly. It's unpleasant for such a nice-looking machine, but it's worse than that: be prepared for a bowl of soup to slosh out from these sudden accelerations, or for your plastic cover to fall off. - The numeric keypad is arranged in a 2 x 5 grid to suit the product's styling. A telephone-style keypad would be more intuitive.

Interesting concept

FlowerChild 6/28/2017

I think I am still getting used to a microwave in a drawer. We previously had an over-the-stove microwave venting to the outside and we replaced it with a hood vent. That meant we needed a solution for where to move the microwave and this was a good idea. You have to be careful because you have to use the close button to close it (there is a natural reaction to push it closed but you're not supposed to). I am also disappointed that it doesn't have a rotating platform inside -- I wonder why? Other that that, so far, it seems to work adequately.
