Whirlpool® 0.5 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave with Add 30 Seconds Option is rated 4.6344 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space saver, amazing results! I just purchased this microwave for my condo, that has limited counterspace and let me tell you i am impressed! This Microwave has surpassed all my expectations and it doesnt take up that much space on my counter, so i can leave it out and also everyone wants to play with it! It cooks very evenly, has a clock, and will go with any decor. And you can't beat the price, plus its a Whirlpool, whats not to love? Now you and i can have our counterspace back! I was tired of the over sized microwaves, sure they're nice, but its just me and my daughter, we don't really need all that space. This is great for apartments, condos, colleges! The list is truly endless! Thanks Whirlpool!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic little microwave! We've had this now for several weeks and I just LOVE IT! It replaced a huge 1300 watt that sat above my stove on a shelf. I now how my little microwave on the counter where it should be. I have a very small kitchen and limited counter space and the size is just perfect. I was a little concerned that it might be too small but that hasn't been the case at all. Who needs a huge microwave anyway? Even the wattage difference is better. Our old microwave would explode everything unless you powered it down. And speaking of... this has a wonderful reheat feature. You hit the reheat button (automatically changes to 75% power) and then the start/30 second button as many times as you need. It's just so easy to use. We have done standard size popcorn in it (the bag doesn't start to turn right away on the turntable until it starts to pop and expand) and it came out beautifully. Does baked potatoes much better than our old one! Just 3 little beeps when it's done. Everyone who sees this microwave, loves the look of it. They sometimes think it's a TV set. Fantastic design! Thank you, Whirlpool!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sooo Square, but sooo good looking! This is a very nice microwave. Though I have only use it for reheating coffee and defrosting items, its been a very good replacement for my old unattractive microwave. I purchased a 'white' and yet its really a two-tone because the front of unit is black. So, if I had put more thought into it I would have purchased all black. We have placed it on a shelf over that sits over the counter. Though its a stable unit, we are very careful opening the door because its higher and if there is something hot it could be jolted out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Neat little unit I love this little microwave. It does the basic functions that I use 95% of the time. It does not have lots of bells and whistles, which I never really used on my older bigger unit, and I don't miss them. I gave it 4 stars because you cannot program it for exact minutes and seconds, just 30 sec increments, and same with variable levels which are 25%, 50% and 75% only. But the convenience of pushing the 30 sec button for the amt of time I estimate I want is all I need. The smaller footprint is great on my limited countertop space. If I don't want the full 30 secs for melting butter, I just stand there and stop the action at 20 or 25 secs. A minor inconvenience, in my estimation. I have owned this unit since Feb 2013 and I have no complaints. It took me a few minutes to learn the controls and then I have been happy ever since. Resetting the clock was my only confusion when power was off, so I downloaded the instruction page from the internet for that action and it worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, cute & just what we needed! While literally hand selecting every piece that has gone into our new construction home, we looked at what felt like a million microwaves. They were all huge with a ridiculous amount of buttons & tons of features I knew we'd never use. I'm no gourmet chef and I don't cook giant turkeys in the microwave, nor am I a technological whiz. Our family just needed something small & unobtrusive that would be simple to use for reheating leftovers & warming canned foods, etc. I couldn't be happier with this microwave, it's absolutely perfect for our needs! And don't let the little size fool you - there's plenty of room in there for last nights dinner on a full size plate or even a small pizza!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CUTE space-saving countertop microwave Turntable glass tray is bigger than our old countertop microwave, and now we have more counter space for other kitchen gadgets because it takes up less space when we put it in a corner location. Touch pad is REALLY easy to use, quick touch response.... Plus it looks like the face of a cute japanese robot. :) At first I was afraid of the wattage amount but it's perfect for the heating area. For 750 watts, typical cook times are better than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The size is a great improvement over others I was looking online for small microwaves and found this. The tall, square shape looks better and the rounded back allows it to sit in a corner nicely. It's exactly what I wanted, a smaller footprint but it actually heats faster than my rectangular box type, maybe because it doesn't waste space with corners. The revolving plate is larger than my previous one so it can accommodate full size plate. I love the size, appearance, features, heating ability...everything!! I am saving energy because it's only 750 watts and my previous one was 1200 watts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a really nice space saving microwave oven This is really a nice microwave oven. It fits perfectly in the corner of the countertop so it isn't in the way and I am able to wipe it out without moving it. For reheating, defrosting or making a frozen entree or baked potatoes it works great. It is nicely made and doesn't look cheap. For the two of us we really don't need a large capacity microwave oven. The keypad may take some time to get used to. I would highly recommend it.
