Whirlpool® 2.2 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave with Greater Capacity is rated 4.4762 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall is a good microwave. We purchased this model because it had the matching trim kit that we needed to build in our microwave. It works very well and is much quieter than our old one. One feature I miss (and didn't realize I wasn't getting) is the ability to touch a number on the keypad and have it instantly start cooking for that amount of time. I thought that was a standard feature. We have only had the microwave for two months and there are only two of us but the start button is already starting to look bad and cracking. I had read another older review that this could be a problem but thought maybe they would've changed that by now. It makes me concerned about the overall quality of the microwave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good product overall Love the microwave, it works great. My criticisms are few but important: I find that the "dinner plate", while a great idea, cooks the food too long and so overkills it, so I'll just be doing it manually. Most other features are good, like popcorn and defrost. And why can't countertop ovens have handles like the over the range ones? My last Whirlpool worked perfectly when the latch to open the door broke, causing me to purchase a whole new microwave (replacing the latch, a risky pain in and of itself, wasn't an option since I had to jimmy the door open to get food out). Otherwise, my marks are high and I think Whirlpool can be depended on to put out a good product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing We bought this microwave as a replacement for our old Whirlpool microwave. The old microwave had same capacity. It lasted us for 19 years. The new microwave looks okay, and is more powerful. However, the knob/button which you push to open the door is very hard. Its feel is very bad. The knob of the old microwave was far smoother to operate. Similarly, the feel of the touch control panel of the new microwave is also very bad, i.e. when you press a key it takes a while to register, and sometimes you have to push the keys hard. Lastly, the clock on the new microwave was losing about 4 to 5 minutes per day; so we had to replace it under the warranty. Overall the quality of the new microwave is far worse than the old 19 year old microwave by the same manufacturer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks good at first but be careful This microwave works ok, although it's not as user-friendly as our previous one. My main concern is that the panel where the numbers are and the start and cancel button are bubbling up and starting to peel and I know it's going to be very ugly. All my appliances were bought new in May, just 3 months ago... and I was very pleased at first. I'm just very disappointed when I called to see if there was some protective cover or something to keep it from getting worse, I was told since it's not mechanical there's nothing they can do. If there were kids using it, I'd think it was misuse somehow, but it's just my husband and me, so it doesn't even get used on a daily basis...my kitchen is brand new and the ugly peeling panel of the microwave will be a huge blemish. I'm going to say yes I'd recommend it, because it works, but if you care about how it looks 3 months later, you might want to look elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Intuitive It's difficult to really describe the good attributes of microwaves since most of them are pretty standard with respect to capabilities & options. But what I have noticed about this particular model is that everyone who has visited never has to ask how to use it. It sounds silly, but there are some microwaves that you either set the time or have to use the "quick option" (pressing 5 starts it for 5 minutes vs. putting 5s on the cook time), or they can't figure out how to use the timer option without resetting the clock, or vice versa, etc... My 3 year old nephew could figure out how to use this unit if only he were two feet taller and could reach it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as friednly as my last Whirlpool I just bought this unit to replace an earlier generation of the same microwave. I would have rated the previous unit 5 stars. The new unit isn't as user friendly as the one I previously had..It has more buttons but they don't provide me any additional value and make me work harder to do the same tasks. In addition, the buttons don't respond as well as the previous version's (especially the door opening button). The previous unit failed because I didn't take care of it. I bought this unit because of the satisfaction I had with the previous unit, If I knew then, what I know now, I would have taken better care of the previous unit. I'm actually on this WEB site to see if they still make the old unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One great oven with one small drawback Purchased this microwave to replace a 30 year old one that was fried by a power surge at our house. That was a blessing in disguise because this oven is so much better. This oven is huge yet still fits in the cabinet space of the old one. You could cook a turkey in there. And it's powerful and fast. I love the one touch 30 second start and the presets for dinner plates, soup, and frozen food defrosting. I love everything about this unit except the exterior gloss finish. It attracts finger prints like auto accidents draw lawyers. It's not hard to clean (the interior is very easy to clean) but finger prints seem to need wiping off after almost every use. I wish Whirlpool would give the exterior a little texturing to help hide finger prints and small smudges.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doubt I will win anything with that review. But compared t my old Whirlpool Gold microwave, this is a step back! the microwave is very difficult to open and is loud when closing the door. It is quiet when running, but the beeper at the end is annoying. Mine arrived with a defect on the inner surface of the door....Know my review will reach no one, but I feel better letting you know the disappointment I have with it.
