Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful exhaust fan, huge interior. I installed this OTR microwave myself, and chose to vent the exhaust outside. The install went very fast and the installation instructions and supplied cutout templates were very helpful and easy to follow. The 400 CFM exhaust fan has been great at keeping cooking odors out of the house. It's relatively quiet compared to our old OTR even on high speed and low speed is quiet enough to hold a conversation but still powerful enough to vent odors well. The 2.0 cubic ft microwave is really pretty big. We have 5 year old twins who can't ever seem to agree on what to eat so it gets used a lot. Overall, we couldn't be happier with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My needs are met First I'll say I haven't used each function yet, but I am very impressed overall so far. The person before me states the light level is poor, but I do not agree. The light level is what I need and I have no complaints. I think sometimes kitchens are set up in that there isn't sufficient lighting to begin with. Why would you expect a microwave light to compensate for that? When the microwave is operating it is quiet. I am impressed with the fan, quiet and appears to be strong. I was concerned about the heat coming off my gas range but so far the auto sensor fan has not come on, so now I just wait and see if it does when I have more than two of my large burners on. The interior is sleek and nice to see instead of the standard white. I spent considerable time researching what is out there to replace my GE that died after almost 11 years, and found this one had all the features and style I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Would change very little. This has been a great microwave so far. There was not a huge learning curve, and you didn't feel like you had to read the owner's manual for the space shuttle before you cooked something. It cooks evenly, and looks great. We have been very long term Whirlpool appliance fans and love the reliability. Suggested improvements - maybe an LED light bulb for the light on the bottom of the unit that illuminates the range. The current light gets very hot if left on for quite some time. Also, I would like for it to have a capacitor that would hold the time a little longer after a power outage, as we find ourselves resetting the time & settings with frequent power outages. Other than that, we love it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Microwave! With a couple enhancements (e.g., ability to pause cooking without opening door), this appliance would be fabulous! I am very pleased with the Whirlpool 2.0 cu.ft. microwave/oven hood combination. The draft fan is powerful enough to pull steam/hot air out of the kitchen when I am cooking several things on the stove. The interior is also easy to clean with the non-stick coating. Also, the electronic signal that cooking has finished is pleasant. The only feature that I would like to have is to be able to pause cooking without opening the door. One option that may need revision is the potato-cooking one. I followed the cooking directions for four potatoes, but the microwave appeared to overheat the potatoes (cooking did not cease when the potatoes were sufficiently hot). Overall, I am impressed with this appliance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome performance Yery quiet. Cooks extremely ever. Ease of clean up is fantastic. I installed myself with directions provided with my wife's help without problems. Love the multiple cooking options. Love the size of the cooking space. The three fan speeds and multiple light levels are a real plus. I am extremely satisfied with the whirlpool 2.0 cut ft microwave hood combination with auto adapt fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice features (just a little dim and noisy) We installed this model above our gas stove. Aesthetically, it's lovely. We love the stainless finish and it's pretty easy to keep clean. Performance-wise, we're very happy with the microwave. It reheats and defrosts very well. And we like many of the other features - the Auto Adapt fan, Sensor Cooking, and the recessed turntable is nice, too. There are only two drawbacks for us: 1) the exhaust fan is a bit loud (although the Low setting isn't bad), and 2) the stove top light is a little dim and positioned toward the back of the microwave hood so there are some shadows being cast while you cook. All in all, we're very happy with the microwave!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great features but one issue from being awesome ok, I will say this works great overall, but here are some issues: it's loudwhen in, the door click is the worst part, you can never close the door without that click even when you try to hold the door as you push it in slow.... it's 2013 it should close without a loud click... my 10yr old Maytag closed a lot smoother. and there should be an off button for thelights and the fan- why do I have to click thru hi me lo then offf, that's silly. I know that sounds like a negative review but I figured I'd focus on what people that read these care about, which in my view are the nuances. the feature are plenty and I've had 0 reliability issues

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is quiet and has great features The Whirlpool 2.0 cu ft Microwave Hood combination with Auto Adapt Fan is great. The microwave is fairly quiet while it is cooking. The indicator that food is done is pleasingly quiet. The fan is not too noisy, even on the highest level, and it does draw out smells and moisture from the stove. I have only begun to experiment with all of the microwave features. So far, it defrosts meats and fish really well, melts cheeses well, and pops a bag of popcorn down to the last kernel. These are features in addition to the regular functions for cooking on high with which I have been pleased. At 2.0 cu. ft., this microwave is a good size too. I have yet to use the rack to enable me to cook or keep multiple items warm. The inside and outside are easy to clean. I would definitely recommend this product. I was so pleasantly surprised with it as it is so much better than the fairly new microwave hood combination that was in my place when I moved in.
