by RLS52 Great feature with the option to have turntable off. This is most helpful when using a rectangular dish.
This microwave is very efficient. The lighting is great and the ease I have with using it. I love the feature of being able to have the turn table off when heating up something which is in a rectangle dish.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JimPeoria Microwave and Rangehood
The microwave actually does work quite well or at least as well as any other microwave we have ever used or tried.
The range hood part was a completely and utter waste of time and energy . It neither works well or is it quiet. It can't even suck out the lightest of smoke or vapors from the cooking surface directly below it also the light it has for the cooking surface below is very poor at best, you alnost need a flashlight to see if it is working.
If I had to do it over again and knowing what I now know I would have elected for a stand alone microwave and a stand alone range hood.
If you are looking for a good microwave then buy this one without the rangehood. If you are looking for a range hood then keep looking because this one simply does not work and it is way to noisey for what little it does do. Believe me it does very little. If Sears would take it back I would gladly make the change to something far better as a rangehood and get a stand alone microwave possibly even a Whirlpool.

We installed the microwave oven. It fit perfectly, and the enclosed directions and template for drilling holes made the job a snap.
The bisque color matched our electric range and other kitchen appliances exactly.
The removable rack innovation, surprisingly metal, is convenient.
The LED display is bright and provides all the set up info we need. It makes programming the oven easy. The programming options are quite versatile. The "Heating Complete" musical tone is actually functional, since I am slowly losing my hearing. The varying tones hit tones to which my hearing is more sensitive, where a single frequency tone may go unheard by me.
The only con is the lack of a "Pause," rather than a "Cancel," which would be useful when wanting to check the heating progress of the dish being warmed, then continue on with the remaining time. Also, a selection of different musical tones would be nice. (Being able to go on the internet would also be nice! --just kidding.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Shea2 Disappointed in quality of item.
I purchased this Microwave on July 28, 2013. Last Sunday, I could not get it to heat anything. The exterior would get hot, but the food did not heat.
I called my Whirlpool Service Number and they sent a repair man out. He came on Tuesday and had to replace the Magnatron. He did a great job. However, it was disappointing to me, to have to call for repairs, before the unit was even three months old. It is the third microwave that I've owned and never have I had one break down before. I gave the first two to charity, when I replaced them.
I'd been having difficulty setting the power level. The repair man tired and at first it was difficult for him. He then tried hitting Cook Time first, then power level and it worked. Again, never have I had to have instructions, before.
It is fine now, but I gave the less than satisfactory rating, because to need repairs so soon, after purchase wasterrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 08Kathy This microwave really does the job!
I'm not a microwave expert but do use one frequently. We were in the middle of building a house when I ordered this much needed microwave. As the cold weather arrived, we moved into our unfinished house (no kitchen!!!) and the microwave was vitally important. With just a quick review of operating instructions, I was ready to start and happily found this microwave works easily and efficiently. With the separate buttons for cooking various things such as potatoes, vegetables and popcorn, I quickly learned to trust the microwave and let it figure out the correct cooking level and time. It is great at defrosting. It is so easy to tap the 30 second button to quickly add extra time. I don't prepare gourmet meals, but they are tasty and warm and the microwave is an excellent helper in my work. Now our kitchen is almost complete and the microwave is installed. How I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OrionMicrowaveRangeVent This product is simple and perfect and more than we expected!
To frame this review , This product was apart of the purchase of our 1st new home as a range vent/microwave. My wife and I wanted to just have a range vent but we could only acquire this product. We've had some poor quality built range vent/microwaves but this by far has suprised us and made us feel comfortable in our home having it .
Performance - is extremely versatile and accurate in its everyday use at home from defrost , popcorn, kids meals, tea, hot cocoa, fast heating technology. Not important but Cool sounds instead of the annoying long toned beeps.
Quality - excellent and expertly built
Ease of use - easy is the simplest way to put it and buttons sensor is extremely sensititive so you don't have to press hard.
I think that pretty much covers it. I enjoy it and love our whirlpool appliance.

I absolutely love this microwave! It comes with this sensing technology that allows for you to place something on the plate and it determine the best method/timing for whatever you are cooking. Another feature that I found out about on accident was that the fan also senses smoke. One day I burnt something in a skillet and turned on the van to help dissipate the smoke. Once I thought it was ok, i tried turning the fan off and the microwave fan would not turn off. I found this feature helpful and it actually impressed me. I had opened our back door to help with the smoke and to me, it was ok for the fan to be off, but I really liked that the microwave wouldn't turn off. It was a nice feature I didn't remember reading about. I also really like the aesthetic of this model. We have the black model and found it easy to use right out the box with several features and ways to cook food. One thing we liked is that the use of increasing and decreasing the power was easy. We have a toddler and most times we only use half power when reheating. It's not only easy to use but doesn't bring the temp up too high.
