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.

appliance bulb "glued" in

sallyayne 8/15/2019

Bought this in 2016. Appliance bulbs were burnt out, so I unscrewed the little doors protecting it, and the bulbs will not come out. There is literaly no space around the top of the bulb. The little door is on the right, so it's impossible to gather some leverage. I called Bosch customer service, but the rep told me "no", she had no way to connect me to tech support. Okay, so now I'm on my own. I was afraid of applying pressure for fear of breaking the bulb. So, I patiently jiggled it for a few minutes. And it started to give a little. Continued jiggling and I was finally able to unscrew it. Inspecting the bulb, I see there was silicone on the top of the bulb and on the base. The other bulb was "glued" at the base; with it separating from the glass. They were "glued in place"! I write this so that anyone ever having a problem with trying to replace the bulb; this may be the cause. Also the door is hanging down about 1/4 inch with no way adjusting it back to its proper place. Poor quality control.

Extremely Disappointing Piece of Equipment

guni 6/16/2019

Purchased this microwave exactly 2 years ago and it's already having issues. It won't turn on anymore and keeps tripping my fuse. Called customer support and next technician date is nearly a month out which is a challenging amount of time to live without a critical appliance. Only real choice is to purchase a new microwave and given the subpar experience on support for the unit will be looking at other brands.

Great product

Paola 5/8/2019

The microwave works well. The only thing I'm not very happy is about the noise the vent makes. Is too noise, even for taking is difficult to heard what others say.

Remodel Replacement OTR Convection Microwave

Kathleen 4/30/2019

We purchased a suite of Benchmark products for our kitchen remodel of which the OTR Convection Microwave was one of the purchases. While I'm still learning about the many cooking functions available for this convection microwave, I do love cooking with it so far. I'm very pleased with the purchase.

Died after less than 2 years

TJS6 1/16/2019

My microwave was manufactured April 2017 and I got it 7/20/17. All seemed fine until last night (1/15/19) when I opened the door after microwaving something, heard a loud pop and microwave went out. Thought it was just the fuse so fixed the fuse witch and when I tried to use the microwave, heard the same pop and it tripped the fuse again. My super tested the outlet it was plugged into and there were no issues with it. We plugged the microwave into a different outlet and same popping and tripping of fuse happened. It is unacceptable that an $800 microwave could break after less than 2 years. Of course it broke after the warranty so I was told I need to pay $129 to just have someone come out and then additional charges for every 15 minutes of the person's time. Bosch has a reputation for making great products and my experience is totally counter to this. Clearly something was defective with the microwave I got and the right thing to do for a customer who has had the product for about a year and a half is to either repair it or replace it.

We love this Microwave - it heats up fast and has the absolute best settings. We haven't even used them all yet!

It is simple and easy to use. I can use it as a microwave or a convection oven. So it is very convenient!

Really, really nice

Farmboy 1/30/2018

Love the size (most microwaves are the same outside dimension but if the controls are on the bottom/door you get more useable interior) and all stainless inside. And really appreciate a "second" convection oven. For the difference in price I would recommend the Benchmark over the 800 series (our son bought the 800 so we can legitimately compare). I've installed 2 microwaves in my life and it's a pretty easy process. Make sure you find a wall stud to anchor at least one of the mounting bolts

A wonderfully versatile appliance!

Cindy 12/20/2017

With large family gatherings there are times when we need extra oven space. Having a microwave/convection oven combination will now allow us never to be want of oven space again!

Fantastic Microwave!

JamesCandor 9/14/2017

Purchased this one for the kitchen we recently remodeled, and it really works great. Unlike past microwaves it seems to heat food more uniformly which is important. Clean up is really easy as well thanks to its ez clean surfaces. Highly recommended!

Exterior was dimpled

Srq Travelqueen 5/29/2017

Purchased this so I had the convenience of a convection oven as well. The temperature never reached the set temp. Waiting for new sensor to be installed and hoping this resolves problem. Also after installed, noticed the exterior "stainless" pieces had dimpling in the top, bottom and side pieces. Two have been replaced but one of them still has a large dimple. Microwave feature works fine and as expected.

Great appearance

JimO 5/4/2017

Looked at several - liked the features and finish. Has more power than the one it replaced. I bought it in conjunction with a Bosch electric induction range.

Takes too long to warm up as a convection

mokuska 3/8/2017

I purchased this to eliminate a free standing toaster. The convection does not work well at all - the toaster is here to stay unfortunately. Takes extremely long to warm up and to cook / bake. Looks good, matches the slide in range but do not waste you money on the convection. The microwave segment is OK

Sleek look!

wac1 3/3/2017

We bought this a couple of weeks ago and installed it ourselves. Love the look as it matches our double oven! It's easy to use and can be used like an oven.

Lacking Features

Gilbert 2/27/2017

I replaced a 10 year old Over the Range Convection/Microwave with the Bosch HMVP053U Convection/Microwave. The Bosch is lacking several features that the 10 year old Convection/Microwave Model had. None of the buttons on the control panel have any back lighting to see them when you push them. you must turn on overhead lights to see which buttons to push. When in the convection mode, you can set the oven temperature but you cannot set a cooking time for the convection oven. The cooking process does not end and must be watched to not overcook what is placed in the oven. I considered the Bosch Brand to be a much higher level appliance than my previous model but was disappointed that the features were less than my 10 year old lower reputation appliance.
