Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Appliance We made a space to accommodate this microwave in our new home after selling our 25 year old gigantic microwave that still worked but didn't go with anything we had. We have been using it for 2 days and I love that my dishes fit. The mostly stainless front and black face matches with the new Frigidaire, Bosch, and GE appliances we have. Whirlpool has been an appliance we have always had and this includes the Whirlpool Estates washer and dryer I have had for 6 years and still working and this now microwave. All from Trouts Appliances in Gun Barrel City TX. It is bigger than the cheap microwave we are going to throw out after just a years because the turntable broke. I love the loud beeper. It gets my attention! The pre programed features are great and it looks good. A little boxy but overall, this Whirlpool Countertop Microwave is great for me since I'm only 5 feet tall and cannot reach a built in! March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT MICROWAVE After researching many microwaves I finally decided to buy this one. My Sharp after 14 yrs bit the dust. I needed a special size unit that would fit where my other microwave was. I also needed a 1.6 cu ft with 1200 watts of power. This whirlpool fit perfect and has all the features I needed. Its easy to use, has a great bright blue display light which you don't need your glasses to read. Also the interior light comes on when you open the door which makes it easy to see how your food is and to clean the inside. Its also a very quiet unit when its on. I am so glad Whirlpool had this microwave and the size is perfect, my 3 qt casserole dishes fit with no problem with room to spare. The unit style is very nice to and I was able to get it in the color white which is hard to find these days. I would recommend this unit. I use it everyday several times a day. Thank you Whirlpool for making such a great product., keep up the good work. January 2, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dependable, but too small. Too much built-in kit around it, beeps too much, hard to see food cooking, small control panel, and no door handle. We haven't had this microwave long, but so far it has been dependable. This will be our 4th microwave from Sears in eleven years...not a very good record. Since the built-in microwave dimensions keep changing, not only do we have to buy a new microwave, we have to buy a new kit to go around it too. That is disgusting and very frustrating!!! This microwave is small inside and the kit takes up a lot of space...too little microwave and too much kit!!! It is quite, but when the food is ready it beeps too many times. One time is enough for me. Since the glass on the door is dark, it is really hard to see food cooking inside this microwave. The control panel is hard to see (letters too small) and we don't need the 30 second extra feature on the control panel. I would much rather have a door handle to open the door. So far it works O.K., but I really don't like it. Too much money for what I got!!! November 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cooks food evenly & quickly; easy to use This microwave has a number of excellent features, yet is easy to use. Food cooks quickly and evenly. The only drawback, in my opinion, is the protective film that covers the touch pad. We have only owned this microwave for a little over 1.5 months and we are seeing "bubbles" appear on the "start" and "cancel" pads, as well as around the top edge of the pad. This makes me wonder how long the protective film is going to actually last. I'm also a bit hesitant about the push-button release for the door and it's durability. I guess time will tell. I've only used a microfiber cloth to clean the pads, so no harsh chemical cleaners and no water so I don't believe the "bubbles" are caused by anything the consumer has done. April 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Replaced a 17 year old Whirlpool This unit replaces a 17 year old Whirlpool 2.2 cu ft, 900 watt microwave. I purchased another Whirlpool unit because the old unit worked so well over the years and I also didn't want to learn a totally new set of controls. The new microwave arrived with a broken tray support ring and it took over 3 months to get a replacement ring. The broken ring worked okay during that time period. The door button is very hard to operate as other reviews mentioned but I have gotten use to it. The main thing that I am disappointed in is defrosting. My 17 year old Whirlpool microwave had a defrost cycle that would stop periodically to let you turn over the meat you were defrosting. The new one doesn't do that and I thought since the feature was gone, maybe it wasn't needed anymore because of better technology. Boy was I wrong. This new oven defrosts very unevenly with more partly cooked areas and more still frozen areas than the old one. I also have to microwave potatoes at 70% power or they are overcooked and dried out. It took some experimentation to figure out what percentage of power would cook the potato without over "nuking" it. I'm still in the learning curve for this oven but it is probably as good as any other manufacturer's units. March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gets the job done My old microwave began malfunctioning and I needed a replacement. I noticed that we had a whirlpool microwave at work that we have had for many years and it gets a ton of use and abuse and "keeps on ticking". So, I researched many different brands and decided that the whirlpool seemed to be the best bet for the money. We have had it several months now and I am very pleased with it. It seems more powerful than the last microwave as it takes a little less time to cook or warm up various items. It is simple enough to use and yet, it has all the bells and whistles if you want them. The door latch is a little stiff, but not a major issue and the sound level is about average for microwaves. I would certainly recommend this oven. March 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I didn't realize how bad my old one was! When my old unit went out it was an oven/micro combo. I decided to replace the oven and microwave as separate units. I love the microwave! It is so quiet! The efficiency of the unit is wonderful. I have had to reivise all of my previous microwaving habits. Popcorn doesn't burn, the soup button is awesome, the beverage button has eliminated my boiling over my drink and I could go on and on. But the defrost features are such time savers and make me look so prepared! It defrosts with out me cooking it! the turntable insures even defrosting. If the working of the microwave wasn't enough, the look of the unit is wonderful. It looks beautiful. I live in the desert so heating up my kitchen with an oven isn't always a smart idea. With my new microwave, I cook wonderful meals without breaking a sweat! November 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Good Size This microwave fit very well into our kitchen cabinet space. The depth is a little too much, but not noticable. The cavity is big enough for what we use. It doesn't have an annoying timer alarm that keeps going every few seconds. It does have cool blue numerals on the outside. April 14, 2014
