Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. August 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like it. My new microwave has so many features that were not on my old one, or at least the features are easier to use. I love the turn table. I use the defrost option often. I just really like it. April 16, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by clean lines, excellent heating capability, great size this microwave has a nice clean look. It cooks very fast and is large enough for a 13x9 pan. My only negative comment is that the buttons are a little hard to press, the door button is a bit small and the closing of the door could be a bit smoother. Overall tho it is a great microwave. I love whirlpool products April 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by SUPERB NEW MICROWAVE!!! Our new microwave is superb - I love it. It's much more powerful than our previous oven. The design fits beautifully with either black or chrome appliances. The "open" switch is quite stiff, but I suppose it will ease up with repeated use. The inside is designed in such a way that its very easy to clean. I especially like the rotating glass circle. It's much larger than our previous oven and the surface is conducive to being wiped cleaned without the need to remove it. April 4, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. April 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good heating Does a great job with speciality heating and timing April 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by As Expected I purchased this microwave and trim kit to replace an old microwave and trim kit. The instructions were easy to follow and the unit and trim fit perfectly. March 31, 2014
