I bought this because of the under-cabinet mounting kit it comes with. Inexplicably, this seems like a real niche, and microwaves that come with or support under-cabinet mounting are hard to find. Typically they're also a lot more expensive than this one and the mounting kit is sold separately for another $20+.Given this unit, with mount, cost only [$], I was a little concerned about quality and ease of use. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to mount, how simple it is to use and how well it works.It's only 700W, so cooking takes a bit longer than with other microwaves, but that also means it doesn't draw a lot of power (requiring a dedicated circuit) the way a 1000W+ microwave might. It also doesn't dissipate a lot of heat.I wish it had a kitchen timer (as most microwaves do), but that's a trivial oversight given most of my other appliances do have one.I'd definitely buy this unit again, and I'd definitely shop with [...] again!

Satisfactory--but not powerful on high

This product is OK, I guess. I bought it to use with frozen food dinners--but on its highest setting--it doesn't do anything near what the frozen products predict.

This product is OK, I guess. I bought it to use with frozen food dinners--but on its highest setting--it doesn't do anything near what the frozen products predict.

Also, instructions are very confusing--I think they were translated--and translated badly at that. And, nowhere does it tell you how to go from start to finish in doing anything. (For example: How To Heat Coffee, or, How To Make A Frozen Dinner--nothing like that is included--just confusing lists, some of which were just wrong and I had to figure out for myself when programming(power levels--5 instead of 50, 6 instead of 60). The Instruction Booklet was just one big mess.

On the other hand, the turntable works evenly and well.

    Comments about Whirlpool Compact Countertop White Microwave:

    Basically use it for everything that I, a non-cooker, do. First one sent did not go around smoothly. The mechanism stuttered. ABT replaced the unit immediately and 2nd one is absolutely fine. The 1st one also seemed to not heat evenly.

    Service and delivery comments:

    very prompt delivery. packed very well. problem was that the mechanism did not rotate smoothly. ABT was immediately responsive to my complaint and sent me a 2nd unit -- which works perfectly.

        Comments about Whirlpool Black Compact Countertop Microwave:

        I'm basically a defroster, and this microwave is ideal for my purposes...does a GREAT job.

        I'd be happier with it if it had a door button rather than a handle and if the door itself was less flimsy than it appears (It's plastic.), but I've got no REAL complaints.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was very quick...2 days from Chitown to Brooklyn, and my microwave arrived in pristine condition.

        Customer service was OUTSTANDING! My issue was resolved promptly, expeditiously, and satisfactorily.

        I HEARTILY recommend Abt to all appliance purchasers for having treated me to an OUTSTANDING buying experience.

          Comments about Whirlpool Black Compact Countertop Microwave:

          Microwave heats evenly and all controls are easy to understand and work well. The door makes a disturbing loud slam noise when closing. They should have put in some cheap rubber bumpers. The mounting hardware makes a big speed bump inside of a cabinet when it is mounted under the cabinet. I took the inside-of-the-cabinet hardware to work to modify it.

          Service and delivery comments:

          ABT website, ordering and delivery was flawless.

              I installed this in a school common area under a cabinet that was only 11 1/2" deep, and it fit fine -- about 1/2" clearance at back (it vents to the sides) and the front mounting hole was about 1" from the front edge of the cabinet.

                  We were needing something small, yet could do a good job heating evenly for our office employees. These are small, but very powerful. Our employees were excited that they can now cook a bag a popcorn in them and it not burn. The turntables are great!

                    Really delighted with this machine! It was the style, size & color I wanted and it's simple to operate.Completely self-explanatory!I cook often but, find reheating in the microwave for lunch or leftovers is the best way to retain moisture and avoid charring on the stove top. It also saves dishes. This one was replacing my last one, a different brand that I hope this one surpasses.[...], affordable too.I will definitely use ABT in the future!Thanks!

                    For its compact size this microwave delivers. Even though it is only .7 cubic ft, you can still fit a dinner plate in it to reheat meals or warm plates.Also, has all the 1-touch buttons for the things you actually use. This microwave is perfect for limited space or student dorm room.
