Rated 3 out of 5 by Eyedoc Very disappointed in the amount of noise.
Like all the features but the excessive fan noise is disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jody2013 Spacious and functional
The controls are easy to figure out. The system bascially walks you through anything you want to do so you don't have to refer to the owner's manual. Very big interior to hold a lot of dishes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by pianist Looks nice but certainly proves "You get what you pay for."
I was assured this oven set would be just as good as the one I had had for a number of years. Well, first off, it lacks a timer for a second oven operating at the same time as the first. I bake a lot, so this almost led me to return the unit. Secondly, I quickly learned you cannot put a dish of any kind into the oven while it is pre-heating as the upper coils will scorch it right off. Thirdly, the pre-heating takes forever. Fourthly, the sound level of heating and the cooling fan are certainly loud. I am sorry to be negative, but I will live with this unit for many years, and called the salesman to let him know he should know what he is selling!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TRCIII Great Replacement Oven
We needed to replace a 13 year old double oven with a bad 'board' which would take forever to heat up; never got to the right temperature; took forever to cool off. We had to use a secondary thermometer to make sure the temp in the oven was correct...and we could never be quite sure if the food was cooked.
Now - we set it up, the food cook quicker and thorough; the cool down is not very long... it is quiet, and the large glass panels are a great compliment.
Take your time to get to know the panel - it is easy once you experiment with the timer and other features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lisarenee A little loud but cooks great!
Overall once the oven was calibrated to the proper temps. It cooks great! I do find the fan for the cool down a little loud, but overall it is simple to use and cooks great. I love having the option of double ovens to cook things at the same time, as simple as Brownies for dessert after a casserole that need to be baked at different temps.
So other than the fan being a little loud, and sometimes the buttons are not as sensitive to touch as I would like... It bakes and cooks great!

The dual lights are fabulous, making it easy to clearly see the food cooking. Everything cooks evenly. A well thoughtout product.

A must for every home. The unit is easily used for beginners or for the full times chef.
Large cook space and easily accommodates for preping for large or small entertainment.

I love using this electric ovens because the heat is consistently when baking. I like warming feature as well and saves the electric bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TerryinHtown We love our big Whirlpool oven
As an important component of remodeling our vintage 1968 kitchen, we graduated from a 5/6 year old 24 inch electric double oven to this wonderful Whirlpool 30 inch double oven. What a machine. The controls are ideal because they are all electronic for both ovens plus being intuitive and straightforward. The racks are thoughtfully designed for pulling out easily without accidentally going too far. The display tells you everything you need to know and helpfully suggests which button needs to be activated next to start a cycle. I expected the enormous window to be hot when in use, but not so. the glass remains comfortable to the touch even when broiling at 500 degrees. These ovens are enormous, and both are self cleaning. There are lots of levels for the racks as well. My wife cannot wait to do her holiday baking and roasting in it.
I was used to broiling with the oven door open and heating my kitchen plus pumping smells and grease around. With this unit, I broil with the door closed with the heat and smoking contained inside the oven--much better. The hidden lower burner is priceless for reducing the headaches of splattering and smoking.
We skipped the induction oven thing because we have never had that before and really did not see a need for it based on our intended usage.
My only quibble/complaint is the noise of the automatic fan(s). I had read other reviews of this series of ovens, so I was by no means shocked when I turned the oven on for the first time and the fan started--in fact I laughed because I am by no means overly sensitive to droning noise, but this thing sounds like it could move a good-sized air plane down the runway if necessary. We are used to it after 4 months, but it seems like they could have made it operate at one neutral sound pitch instead of droning and whining and whistling all at the same time. It also seems to run a long time after shut down compared to our previous oven.
However, all things considered, we thoroughly enjoy our big, lovely stainless steel oven. We have even decided to think of the noisy fan as the equivalent of a wonderful aunt who talks a little too much, but whose cooking is divine!

Rated 4 out of 5 by PamSLP Good product
Our ovens are beautifully designed and work well, although we had to calibrate the oven temperature on the upper oven. The only bad thing is the fan is very loud. A friend even said, "What is that loud noise?" when we were sitting twenty feet away from the oven.

The oven is working well. However, when turned off the fan remains quite noisy until it has completely cooled down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KatieK Nice big oven
I really like the room in this oven. Big enough for all of my cooking needs. I got a free pull out heavy duty rack as a promotion and I love it. It really helps me as I am short (4'11) and it is hard for me to get to a high rack on these mounted ovens. The fan is a little loud and seems to run for a long time after the oven has shut off. I wish the light could be put on in each oven individually instead of on or off in both ovens. I do love the big windows and the ease of operation. I wish the bottom oven was self clean too.

Rated 3 out of 5 by bryan Good double oven, but has issues
I'm not sure if it's a design flaw, or a flaw with the space our oven is installed in (which matches whirlpool specs) but we've had a ton of issues with this oven and the cleaning cycle. Every time we try to run it through a cleaning cycle, it blows fuses and repairs take weeks, due to parts being on back order.
Other than that...the oven is fine. Good features, easy to use, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dana0109 Love my double ovens!
We recently remodeled our kitchen and double ovens have been on my wish list for years. Our fridge and microwave are Whirlpools so I wanted the ovens to match. I really like the design and look of the ovens. The handles, trim and function keys/display look high end. The ovens heat quickly and cook well. They take a while to kick off after you're done cooking, but if you crack the door open it shuts off in a few minutes so its really not a big deal. I really love them and am very happy with them! They were less expensive than a lot of other brands we looked at and great quality for the money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by weezie77 Good oven but loud and shuts off randomly
This is a good oven. Bought it with a house already installed. The fan runs for a very, very long time after you turn it off. Plus, it randomly shuts off for a few seconds when heating up or during cooking. An oven should not do that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by elijah286 This oven is so loud it's unbearable
Okay, the oven is great in every regard except for the fact that it is obnoxiously loud! Our double oven is right next to the dining area, so it completely ruins the meal, especially since they designed it such that the friggin' fan runs for HOURS after turning the oven off. We've had double ovens before, and this is not necessary, though it's increasingly common on new models. It sounds like a microwave, but microwaves don't normally run for hours, nor do they need to cool down for hours.
I'm going to try to figure out how to disable the fan. Friggin' miserable. I would love to hear Whirlpool's feedback on this issue and what they plan to do to address it.
If the fan weren't so loud, I would've given this review five stars.

This unit is the finest product of this type that we have owned. We have been Whirlpool users for many years, and when we needed to purchase new appliances, we chose Whirlpool! Thanks for asking for our feedback.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KathyJo Too loud/ preheats slowly
Either I got a lemon or you need to go back to the drawing board to redesign the vent fan. My oven is very loud with a whining/whistling noise. I can't believe you would be happy selling a product like this. Many appliances have fans, that are functional and quiet. Also, you market this oven as preheating quickly and mine takes forever. I am planning to pursue either having you check this oven to repair or replace. What are my options when I am so unhappy with my purchase?

This product is, on average, okay. I used a gas oven for 20 years, so switching to electric was a big change for me. it's been a bit of a learning curve. It cooks hotter than my gas oven did, so I burned a lot of things before getting used to it. I think this oven cook unevenly, but again it could be a "learning curve" issue. Time will tell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Deborah1 Very loud oven
Purchased this oven a few weeks ago. The oven is very loud and annoying even in a large kitchen. The board was just changed out and it did not help. It has a high pitch hum during cooking and until cool down which seems an eternity. I am not sure if I will be able to live with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jacob1 Great Product
This is an excellent product. Very wide ovens so they can fit just about anything. We have no problems cooking things in both ovens at the same time. The display at the top is simple and easy to use. The display is great, being able to see the exact temp of the oven is great. Great double ovens and would definitely suggest this product to anyone. Only complaint is the exhaust fan stays on for about 30 minutes after cooking and is not the quietest thing in the world.

Rated 5 out of 5 by baker7 Beautiful double oven
This oven looks great in my kitchen. Overall, I like the control panel, but it takes a while to get used to setting the timer and not turning the oven off when you turn the timer off. The cool-down fan is loud, but my last oven (a different brand) was at the same sound level.
Everything that I have baked has turned out perfectly. The convenience of two ovens would be hard to go without after you get used to these ovens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mfcurry Perfect for preparing large meals
Love the large size of both ovens and the window is great; no more opening the oven door to see if your dish is golden brown or charred. The only draw back is the ovens are very loud when on and when cooling down. The cooling down takes several hours, or so it seems, and the noise is irritating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kimmie I am not a fan of stainless steel products so I love the sleek look of my glossy black finish.
I love the new design of the inside racks...there is actually a cut out in the front center where I can pull out the rack with greater ease. I enjoy the touch screen and overall modern look of the wall unit. I also purchased a matching french door refrigerator/freezer to match the double oven:)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mandy02 Overall a good oven
It twhiles while to preheat, and randomly shuts off at times during cooking and preheating but turns back on. The fan is also very loud. I have found that if I open the doors when done the fan will turn off sooner.
