Great microwave - lives up to its reputation!!!

Steve410 5/14/2014

I bought this microwave in January after doing extensive research. I wanted a microwave to fit in a specific space on the counter and, of course, a high quality and reliable microwave to boot! This sleek-looking model fills the bill. When I do my research I look at user reviews. Too many bad reviews and I hit the browser back button! This Whirlpool microwave consistently received reviews in the range of 3-5 stars. All of my other kitchen appliances (refrigerator, stove, dishwasher) are Whirlpool and I've been very impressed with Whirlpool quality and reliability. So, based upon the reviews, the Whirlpool reputation, and the features and specifications of this microwave, I made my selection. It's easy to use and very intuitive. I've only looked at the owner's manual once which says a lot about the ease of use. It also looks so much better than the clunky one I replaced - it has jazzed up my kitchen! I'd definitely recommend this microwave.

We bought this unit several months ago after our old Whirlpool unit expired. Unit heats well but the turntable intermittently makes loud noise, and the surface over the start button has blistered.

Good buy for the price. Works well.

YvetteB 1/13/2014

I bought this mostly based on price and size from an on-line picture. It works very well and looks great w/our combo of stainless steel and black appliances. We needed to stay within budget because the kitchen was just remodeled and there was not a lot of wiggle room in the budget. I didn't catch a flaw in the kitchen re-design and neglected to have a space assigned for the microwave to be mounted. Instead, I did a work around I really enjoy now and this unit worked perfectly. It is perfectly situated on the shelf of a solid wood hutch I added to the kitchen and it looks as if that was always the plan for it. Warms stuff quickly & thoroughly, it is easy to maintain & clean... love the 30 sec increment increase to adjust warming times. Thanks!

Happy with my microwave!!

pickypam62 12/28/2013

Overall I am very pleased with my new microwave. Two very smalltake away points - the door seems to be a little bit flimsy, doesn't havethat solid feel to it and the finish signal is annoyingly loud, but that couldjust be me in the morning when I need quiet.The cabinet design is beautiful and a little more space saving comparedto my previous oven which means a lot when counter space is at apremium. Roomy enough on the inside but a little less power but what'san extra 30 seconds!

Very quiet!

mhm2001 12/1/2013

We hardly know the microwave is on because it is so quiet. We installed ours in a space below the countertop, so we wanted a design with a handle on the front instead of a push-button, like so many microwaves have these days. We are happy with this one so far (had it ~3 months).

So far, it appears to be a very fine product

Don83 11/18/2013

So far, considering the short time I've used this product it performs according to description. Runs very quietly. I like the size of the turntable and the many features it offers, especially the quick settings for potatoes, etc . It's around the same size as my previous micro so it fits well on my counter top. Time will determine its quality to hold up under constant use over years of performance.

satisifiedbuyer1013 11/10/2013

Once you read manual on how to select power level of microwave, it is a great feature. The beverage selection is great as it heats liquid as hot as anyone would like. The other express selections are very handy especially the entree. The black and stainless is very attractive. I would recommend this microwave to anyone looking to buy a medium size well priced microwave. Haven't used it long enough to really get the best feel for it.

Overall a good little microwave

Jade32 11/7/2013

Sadly, my previous Sharp microwave bit the dust after 18 years of use. As Sharp doesn't seem to be a popular brand anymore, I chose this Whirlpool because it was the closest model in terms of simplicity, size, and functionality. I think the inside cubic ft dimensions are calculated strangely nowadays. My former one was only 0.9 cubic ft, but had noticeably more interior room than this 1.1 cubic ft one. Hence the 4 star rating vs. 5. It is used almost daily, mostly for reheating leftovers and boiling water for tea. All in all, I'm happy with this model for the few months I've had it. If you're looking for a simple counter-top microwave without a lot of bells and whistles this one fits the bill nicely.

Cooks Great

Kat2 11/3/2013

Compared to my old microwave, this one heats faster and more thoroughly. It was the only sensor cooking microwave in the size I wanted and with the handle rather than the button. I like that the light comes on when the door is open.

Nice looking but not that easy to use and very loud.

bfb5366 11/3/2013

The beeps are too loud and having 5 beeps at the end of a cycle is too much. The door also opens quite loudly.

DHD73 4/21/2013

I love this models sleek new modern design. It's stainless steeel and black finish really blend in with the rest of my whirlpool appliances throughout the kicthen. I've never seen a microwave with all the great extra features. I could never get the cooking time right for popcorn. Now with the popcorn button all I have to do is touch one button and not have to worry about burnt popcorn on movie night. The information listed on the inside of the microwave makes cooking times a breeze, It's by far the best unit I've ever owned.

Product works fine, good size fits on our kitchen countertop

JHWY 4/16/2013

Microwave works good. Functions as we have expected with Whirlpool products. Size fits well on our kitchen countertop. Fairly quiet when in use. Metal housing a bit hollow sounding, but does not adversely affect performance. Like black frame with stainless steel trim and dark glass door. Once we figure out all of the features, we will be able to use more effectively. Would recommend this product to others.

LOVE my new Microwave

3/14/2013

It not only looks awesome but works like a charm. I never worry about food coming out too cold or burn to a crisp. It is so easy to use. When I bought it the saleman wanted me to go a size larger but I love this size it fits perfect in my condo and the full size dinner plates fit perfect no worries just smiles.

This product has a 30 second heating button feature.

legdal 3/13/2013

We have to press too hard to enter the time for heating. Most of the time we have to press the Start button 2 or 3 times before it starts heating. The 30 second button works well. We wish there were a 1-minute button. The handle on the door works well and is easy to open.

not much for the money

SteveD 3/11/2013

Having a handle for the door is what drew us to this model. However, it is noisy when operating, the turntable is rocky and the end of cycle beep is annoying. Just another throw-away appliance.

Easy to use and lots of new features

ElaineME 12/15/2012

This is my first microwave with a turntable and I love this feature since I don't have to constantly open the door and change the position of the dish to heat up something.The "dinner plate" feature is fantastic as the food is all warmed through regardless of quantity and the texture of the foods. I am beginning to use this feature more frequently.I'm certain that this new microwave is saving us money on the electric bill as foods warm up in half the time.
