This product works as expected. The convection heat does take a few minutes longer than standard but the results are good for muffins and such. This is a very roomy microwave/convection unit.

The exhaust fan can be a bit much at high speeds but works well enough at lower speeds that it isn't really an issue.

You need to be careful when using automatic settings as it may convect when you want microwave.

Purchased this microwave in 2006 and at first I loved it, then about a year later the glass started to fog up and the plastic strips around the door cracked. I had an extended warranty on the product and the door was replaced. A couple years later it happened again and they ended up replacing the whole microwave. Well, it has happened again and the extended warranty has expired so I am stuck with a microwave that has cracks in the plastic and fogged glass. For the price I paid for this microwave, I should not have the same problem over and over again. I do not recommend this product

saddled with it by previous home owners

By 

from Lincoln, NE

Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Microwave/Hood Combination:

While this microwave has many great features, the design is flawed and these issues overwhelm the benefits. Mounting a touch screen design over a cooktop is a recipe for disaster. Half the time the buttons don't work and the othe the microwave keeps trying to self start a defrost cycle. Or it randomly adds time to an ongoing timer. So we have to keep it locked constantly, which defeats the convenience of any of the built in short cuts. We totally understand now why the previous owners wanted nothing to do with it.

Worst Engineered prodcut ever

By 

from Hanover Park, IL

Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Microwave/Hood Combination:

If I could give it negative stars I would.

I've had nothing but issue's with this piece of junk since day 1. Worst design ever, as others have stated, it over heats and gets a mind of it's own. I spend more time unplugging it. The engineers behind this product should all be fired.

Do not waste your money on this piece of junk!

Buyer Beware!!!

By 

from Phoenix, Arizona

Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Microwave/Hood Combination:

Do not buy this microwave! It is a piece of junk. This unit was installed in our brand new home. Since day one the microwave beeps and scrolls through options as if possessed. We call Whirlpool, they told us to turn on the fan when ever we cook. Now the handle broke. It is the biggest piece of poltergeist junk ever! Don't waste your money and Whirlpool doesn't even step in when it is brand new!

Negative stars - expensive piece of junk

By 

from Dallas, TX

Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Microwave/Hood Combination:

We've had this unit since 2008, and it has been breaking down steadily over time. First off, we liked that this was a dual oven microwave/convection. When we use the convection feature, however, it not only takes longer than our standard oven to cook, it heats up all of the cabinets around it, so that we can't store oil or spices in the adjacent cabinets. Therefore, the convection feature is never used.... Next, the handle breaks. We paid $100+ to have the handle replaced the first time, which broke again shortly after, so we've lived with a broken handle. Third, there is a ghost in this microwave. The electronics have a mind of their own and start beeping and changing whenever they feel like it. We've even had it turn itself on once while empty. So, we unplug it whenever it is not in use. If it is plugged in while cooking on the stove, the steam from cooking will cause the electronics to go haywire, again... Finally, bottom of the door is made of plastic which cracks and falls apart. We noticed the cracks about a year ago as pieces of the door started to fall onto the stove whenever it was opened, so we duct taped the bottom of the unit to continue using it and keep the plastic from falling into our food. Now, the cracks have continued as the glass door is too heavy for the plastic and duct tape. The plastic is breaking further each time the door is opened. This is rendering the unit useless. We've held on to it as long as we can, and have tried to prolong it's life with duct tape, but it looks terrible and is near the end of it's days. For what we paid for this unit, it should have lasted longer than 8 years. I've had other over the range microwaves last forever. I'm glad to see that this design has been discontinued, but beware of any replacements for this unit, as the quality of these units are atrocious. If I could give this unit negative stars, I would.

Once I saw the technology, I made the purchase.

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Microwave/Hood Combination:

The technology is great. I have not fully evaluated the features but will with time. Knowing I have the security of a maintenance plan and my past experience with Whirlpool appliances convinced me to try the convection microwave. I'm sure My family and I will enjoy using it. I recommend Whirlpool and am proud to support an American Company with made in the USA products.

Don't waste your money!

By 

from Findlay, Ohio, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Microwave/Hood Combination:

I loved this microwave/convection cook when I first saw it. It is visually stunning but unfortunately doe not perform. We had issues the first year we bought and every year since-we are on year five. We have spent hundreds in repairs over the last 5 years -mainly because of the initial investment and then regrettably we had our backsplash cut to fit around it! Terrible product-problems with moisture as others have stated getting in the door panel and causing the control panel to go out. Problems with the fan. Problems with it just quitting completely. Overpriced beautiful piece of junk!

I've had less expensive units last twice as long! NOT HAPPY!

By 

from Franklin, WI, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Microwave/Hood Combination:

I had the unit for about 5 years. Today, it died. We have had issues constantly with paint peeling off on the inner black door panel. We had it replaced twice. We have the issue again, but now that it died, we are debating on getting it fixed. Another issue we had was when we boiled water or any other liquid on the range, the steam would somehow make it into the door, in between the panels and the touch screen would go berzerk. I have even witnessed on several occasions that there was a bolt of lightening coming from the top wire guard to the bottom of the cook area, inside the microwave. Today, there was trapped moisture again in between the panels of the door (evident by the moisture between the panes of glass). I ran the fan to see if some air movement would dry it out. A few moments after running the fan, I heard a loud intermittent buzzing coming from inside the unit. After that, the microwave shut down. No functions work at all. The unit is deader than dead. I am replacing it with an LG OTR microwave (no convection). I am still thinking of taking this unit in for repair, not sure what it's going to cost me. I'm very frustrated. The last convection microwave I bought lasted me 10 years and it was $400 cheaper! Not too impressed with this unit....many regrets.

Piece of Junk

By 

from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Comments about Whirlpool Monochromatic Stainless Steel Microwave/Hood Combination:

I bought this in August 2009. It looks great temporarily and cooks really well. Problem is that it is encased in very flimsy plastic. At this point in time the handle is being held together with superglue, the frame around the door is cracked in numerous places, the trim is falling off, and the piece to the right of the door (already replaced once) is also cracked in half. This doesn't include the numerous cracks around screws. When the service repairman came to fix it twice already, he told me this was one of the microwaves he most often is called to repair. At close to $1000, I expected so much more. At this point it would cost me far more to replace the broken pieces than to buy a new convection microwave which will definitely not be a Whirlpool!
