Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whirlpool 2.2 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave I was looking for a Whirlpool microwave to replace my older non Whirlpool that would fit where the other one was. I love my new microwave, it works great. Everything cooks in 1/3 the time. I love my new microwave. Whirlpool is dependable and works great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is fine I really wanted the Whirlpool Gold Version to match my other appliances, but Whirlpool is not making one at the moment. I like that the size is a little larger than my previous one. It does need 2 improvements: 1. the button to open the door needs to be easier to push in the button. 2. It would be nice if the numbers and start button lit up so that I can more easily read them at night without the kitchen light on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value Purchased the 2.2 cu microwave. One of the things that I don't like is that when you select a setting, you still have to push the "start" button. Our previous model automatically started when your selection was made. Like the size.
