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

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. 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.

Mediocre performer

CARY 11/26/2021

This unit is disappointing given the price for the following reasons: 1. The display panel is almost invisible even at the brightest setting. When contacted support, we were told that it was designed so to conseve power. 2. There are a lot of spots in the heating compartment where microwave coverage is not there. Food does not heat evenly through out the compartment, inspite of the turntable. 3. Worst problem of all for this built in model is that the door opens down and comes between the user and the oven. It is hard to reach inside the oven to place dishes or for cleaning. The problem could have been easily avoided if the door swung open to either left or right (or reversible).

Fuse Keeps Burning Out

Robyn 11/4/2021

The fuse where the microwave connects to the oven has burned out twice since we have had this microwave (less than 3 years). It is very complicated to change out the fuse. You have to pull the microwave completely out and then replace the fuse in the oven, then reconnect the microwave then slide the unit back in. I appreciate that the problem is inexpensive but I think there is a flaw when a microwave fuse has burned out this often.

Disappointed with Standard Features

ErnieSalmi 10/29/2021

It heats and cooks as expected. The 'Done' ding volume is much too soft. (The High and Low volume settings are about the same, too low). In addition, the fan contiues to run after the microwave completes and 'dings'. Consequently, it is hard to tell it has stopped. The microwave is above the Bosch oven, and its' door is hinged on the bottom. So, it is difficult to reach the back of the microwave for cleaning. Considering the variety of microwaves available this Bosch has poorly implemented standard features, a diappointment.

Nightmare

Rwin 10/22/2021

Had our Bosch microwave for about 4 years. Just past the warranty period and it seems this is the end of its useful life. First one door spring broke - no way to replace just the broken spring or even the hinge assembly, it is designed such that the entire door must be replaced. Next it started arching under the waveguide, first repair person replaced the waveguide, but problem persists after repair. Microwave is currently unusable until I can find another repair person. The shop I purchased it from referred me to the Bosch site but the number listed on the site doesn't seem to be in service. Also, I agree with other reviewers, this setup is pretty awkward to reach into - works for us because we are a tall family, but would be impossible for kids/shorter person to use without a stool. And yes, the clock is so dim it is not readable during the day, fortunately we don't use it for the clock so not a problem for us.

Like many others I find that the clock display goes dark. I spoke to customer service who tell me it is an energy saving feature and there is no fix. Why would you have a clock go dark?? Clearly a design defect, it is a shame they cannot come up with a fix for this.

microwave function doesn't even work

liam 5/17/2021

This microwave was purchased a few months ago and even after multiple technician visits still won't operate. All the other buttons and functions work properly, but the microwave function won't actually start, which leads me to believe there's an issue with the door micro-switches causing the microwave to think the door is still open even when it's totally closed. The door also doesn't even open the full 90 degrees to completely horizontal, which makes the usability of this thing pretty awful even if it actually worked properly. To top this all off, Bosch won't honor its "limited warranty" even though we have the original receipt from the store we purchased this from. Apparently we need some kind of special, extra-detailed receipt for Bosch to even consider servicing their defunct product, and the standard kind of receipt given to us (and pretty much every other consumer that shops at any retail store) from the store will not suffice. All in all, we now have a microwave that has no microwave capability, with a door that won't open wide enough to be a useful appliance, backed by a manufacturer willing and eager to shirk on their products' warranties. It's essentially the world's most expensive kitchen timer. But hey, at least it looks good.

Good microwave

Skimmie 5/11/2021

I am very happy with my microwave. The glass revolving tray could be better designed. The roller base is always off center and glass comes out of grooves easily. Also because of the placement of the door, it is difficult to clean if mounted above oven. Otherwise excellent equipment.

Poor Quality

Greg 5/8/2021

We purchased a complete Bosch kitchen suite and happy with all except this microwave. Can not read the time as it only works when you push a button and goes completely dim in a few minutes. Why would they put a clock on if you can't even read it. Customer service says it was designed this way. How silly is this. Just an excuse to cover up a design flaw which they have no intention on fixing.

Bosch microwave

Unhappy customer 5/4/2021

After just 2 months our brand new microwave stopped working. We called Bosch and the best they could do was schedule service 4 weeks out. Then we had to wait another 2 weeks for the defective part to be repaired. Also the interior capacity is very small. We would not buy a Bosch microwave again.

Modern communication.

Anton 3/31/2021

We purchased this unit as an integrated over/microwave combination approximately 3 years ago. The microwave recently called it quits and we were told not reparable. The magnetron blew out. We are out of warranty, of course. Rather than spend a great deal of money for w new over/microwave, I tried contacting Bosch to inquire as to the possibility of finding a way to salvage the microwave section. Instead of a reply, all we get is promotional emails. I would strongly recommend avoiding this line. Actually, I would emphatically say to avoid this product. Both the product and product support have been sorely lacking.

Control Panel

Screen Red Bars Image 3/5/2021

Control Panel was replaced due to low visibility. The image is better, but is still very light in comparision to the image displayed on the Bosch Built-in Oven that is located right below the Bosch Microwave. The Microwave functions on cooking levels, but I have had on 3 occasions bright red bars under the time appear during cooking. Once cooking ceases the bars can be seen as dark images for a few hours and then fade. I had repair in again, but repair tech could not get the Microwave to recreate the issue. I showed technician a picture of the bars after the end of the cooking cycle. He said it was hard to see the bars at the time he was viewing. For this review, I toned down the graphic levels so for better viewing. I did not think to do that while tech was here. He said he would note issue in case the issue became frequent. He said the unit was functioning for now and we agreed that if it continued and was frequent that I would contact Bosch.

Dimmed Panel display

THamilton 3/2/2021

Brand new install for our kitchen remodel. We purchased 3 items from Bosch and unfortunately we are not pleased with the quality of the built in microwave oven 500 series. The display will not hold it's level of brightness and is barely visible. I contacted Bosch and they sent out out a repairman but he left due to impatience awaiting it to reset back to the barely readable brightness. I would not recommend this product; however, will update the review if resolved.

Never again ..... !

Gary B 2/28/2021

We chose Bosch appliances for our kitchen when we built in 2017 thinking we were getting relatively high end equipment. To start the 500 series microvave oven was not designed for ease of use and maintenance. I could live with those flaws associated with the design but now the spring assisted door hinges have failed and we researched and found you have to replace the entire door to fix. It is just my wife and I using the microwave and the spring failure was not a result of harsh treatment. I see from other reviews that this is not a one off issue which tells me it is a product issue that Bosch should fix as a product failure unrelated to normal use. The one year warranty should not keep Bosch from addressing this issue.

Bosch Built-in Microwave

panuli 2/24/2021

This microwave is high quality and operates well. The touch pad is easy to understand. Our microwave is installed above the countertop relatively high: the controls are difficult to reach for shorter persons. Having controls on one side instead of above the door would improve this.

Zach 2/23/2021

Overall the microwave is fine but a lot of the advanced features seem like gimmicks and don't really work. For example, the "sensor reheat" will make the cheese on your piece of pizza boil. Not exactly the ideal temperature to eat if you like to keep your taste buds.

The control panel was replaced because it was dark and barely visible at best if you stood right in front of panel to operate. The control panel was replaced and viewing is better, but is not as visible as the oven panel light. If the kitchen is bright during the day, it is much harder to view.

Cleaning Nightmare

Seriously Frustrated 2/4/2021

We bought all BOSCH appliances when we built our home 7 months ago. This microwave opens like an oven, why not side ways? This is built over our oven, I am 4'10'' and I have hard time reaching in to put or pull anything out of this thing. It is the stupidest design I have ever seen. Another thing is the problem of condensation (water vapors) after every use (it can be anywhere from 60 seconds to 5 minutes!!) I have used some cheap brand that cost only $200 and it has never done this. I am not sure if the vent has been built properly or not or this is an issue with other people as well. I would love to hear from them. Cleaning the back of this is not possible even with a step stool because it is too dangerous. Thank the lord my husband cleans that!! I am very disappointed with this product and we spent $1200 for this. The sad part is the replacement will need to be difficult with this dimensions, or I would love to replace it and not get aggravated everyday.... BTW: "Would you like to participate in the Sweepstakes" is a "Yes" or "No" question, NOT a "True" or "False"??? Has anyone even edited your website??

Disappointing

Alma 1/25/2021

We moved into a house with a newly remodeled kitchen. We were excited about having Bosch appliances as we had heard good things about them. One month after moving in, the microwave (only 13 months old, and only in use for approx 6 months) started sparking. Our home warranty covered the repair cost to install a new capacitor. A year later the microwave started sparking again and we contacted a Bosch certified repair person. This time the magnatron, diode and capacitor again need to be replaced. This repair costs approximately half of what the microwave is worth. In addition, the display screen is not working properly as it is very difficult to read. Super disappointing as we either have to fix it or replace the unit.

Beautiful, but faulty

Meeshee 1/22/2021

We moved into a new home in September 2019 and everything was installed and ready to go for us! This microwave is so pretty but about three weeks after the one year mark, it started making a strange sound and we saw a glowing light flashing at the top inside. It was inspected by a local appliance repair company and we also found out from several neighbors that they were having the same issue. Bosch would not cover any of the repair costs because it was past the one year warranty and it is going to cost us $400 to fix. The parts are on back order so we have been without a microwave for more than 3 months now...

Bad design of door, dim screen, and now dead

HoustonWill 1/9/2021

We have lived in our new house since august 17th. Almost immediately we realized we could not get items in and out of this microwave. We had to have a step stool to reach into it to over the drop down door, and certainly to clean it. We spent around $1800 on a carpenter and paint to modify the brand new kitchen, having the microwave lowered 10 inches, which makes the lower oven really low to the ground. I called and emailed Bosch because rhe screen always seems to be off, they said it was an energy saving festure but I find that hard to believe, since there is no reference to such a feature in the manual. Also why would there be a clock display on it or a kitchen timer if it is going to dim, and make those items where you cannot see them. Waking the dim screen is difficult as well. Now the unit has completely died, after popping the breaker several times, it completely stopped. We are waiting now for a week for a Bosch repair person. In the mean time I have bought a 60 dollar microwave to set on our counter to allow the kids to get by until repaired. I read the issues here and dread the thought of a repaired lemon.

If there is a "ding" to announce that cooking is done, I don't hear it unless I have my ear to the mircowave, and then the fan usually drowns it out. Big flaw in my opinion. Cooks fine.
