Whirlpool® 1.6 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave with 1,200 Watts Cooking Power is rated 4.3988 out of 5 by 346.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product overall My old microwave just stopped working on me. I had not gotten two years use out of it and it would have cost more to repair it than the amount we paid for it. I did enjoy the quiet features of my old microwave and the express buttons were very convenient. When asked, the repairman told me that Whirlpool was the better quality appliance so I started my search and ended with a Whirlpool. I was used to the quietness of my old microwave as the door and "waves" of my new Whirlpool were a little louder but overall, I am enjoying my new microwave. A washer dryer pair would complete my appliance pairing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what a microwave is designed to do We've used this for 2 months and find it to be very good. During a kitchen re-model, we wanted a unit which had an available trim kit so it could be wall mounted above a wall oven. Our choices were somewhat limited, but that didn't mean we settled for this model. Test evaluations and previous reviews played an important part in our selection. We use a microwave primarily to reheat left overs and, for the short time we've used it (and we've used it frequently), it's been fine. Our only complaint is with the sensor cooking, in that it seems to cook longer than necessary. I've yet to let it cook until it may shut off automatically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance The Whirlpool microwave is the best microwave we have owned. What used to take 2 or 3 minutes to heat certain items can be done in 1-minute or less. The features on the product are concise and easy to use. The quality of this product is excellent. The only thing I don't like about it is the sound levels. When the timer shuts off it beeps very loudly five times. The reason that's so important is that I am up before my family and it sometimes wakes my family. Other than that - great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average oven My old oven had a handle on the door. This one does not, and it might be what I miss most. The push button opener for the door is not ideal for us. The potato setting is too long. I bake my potatoes in a potato bag. The first time I used this setting, I smelled smoke, opened the microwave oven door to smoke .,, yes, my potato bag was smoking, and had to throw it away. The oven works fine, but next time I will look for a handle on the door. Also, my old oven had a smooth top, very nice for cleaning. This new oven is not a smooth top, has ridges ... I was spoiled with my old oven. Wish I could have bought another one of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Change the area/button you push to open the door. The only thing I would change would be the ease of opening the door. The one we had prior had a large area on bottom to push. With this one (because of nails, which most homemakers have) I have to use my knuckle or turn my hand to use my thumb horizontally. Otherwise, everything else about this microwave is great. I will always buy Whirlpool for price and long-lasting performance; have some that are 20+ years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product has features that are easily understood. The interior size of this microwave allows for a convenient fit for casserole dishes and round frozen pizzas. The features are readily and easily understood without having to look in the manual to find out what the settings mean. This is a big improvement over my previous microwave. It is very easy to clean. Of course, my grandchildren love it for how quickly it makes the microwave popcorn!
