We were asked to pick out appliances for our new home. I picked this one for three basic reasons. It was the same brand as the stove and fridge I picked out, was black, and went over the stove. I had no other criteria. Microwaves in the past, for us, have never been used for much more than reheating leftovers, microwave pancakes for our son in the morning and maybe a bag of popcorn every now and then.Had I consciously decided to research more functionality in a microwave, this would have been it!! I cannot believe how awesome this microwave is. Functions I've used: * The "Dinner Plate" function is a thing to be awed. Load up a plate of leftovers, pop it in and hit ONE button (Dinner Plate). The microwave's internal sensor automatically adjusts the cook time to ensure the food is heated evenly throughout. WORD OF CAUTION: Do NOT stop the cycle to check the progress, then cancel and hit "Dinner plate" button again. For some reason it will get way too hot! * The "Soften / Melt" function has been used numerous times already. You're able to select to soften different products (butter/ice cream/cream cheese). I've used it for both butter and ice cream. The butter selection truly softens your butter without having half soft and half melted. The ice cream selection is another thing that awed me. Our freezer was set too high, so our ice cream was like a rock. Put it in the microwave, selected the "Soften/Melt" button, hit "1" for soften, then "2" for ice cream, then key in the number of ounces. The consistency of the ice cream was perfect!! * We just used the "Steam / Simmer" function last night to steam fresh asparagus for dinner. Again, we were thrilled with the outcome. We put 2 large bunches of fresh asparagus in a glass baking dish, drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Hit the "Steam" selection and steamed for about 10 minutes. Again, AMAZING!!We've only been in our house just under two months and have already gotten so much enjoyment out of this microwave. I give it the highest recommendation and cannot wait to further investigate the other functions this oven has to offer.

The reason that I'm on the Whirlpool web site is to try to see if there is any way that I can either figure out how to fix my nearly new, broken microwave, or to see if I can somehow be compensated. I bought it less than 2 years ago. I have the receipt and all manuals etc. It looks like it's NEW!! I liked the microwave until today, when it completely stopped working. It has no power at all. I checked the outlet, and the house fuses and all are in working order. It's the microwave. Of course, it has a one year warranty. It was manufactured in 2009 and I bought it in April of 2010!! NOT ACCEPTABLE AND VERY DISAPPOINTING!!

This micorowave was a grat surprise, for the price I was thinking that I would give up quality and workmanship, but I was totally wrong. I would highly recommend it.

Comments about Whirlpool WMH3205XVQ White Microwave-Range Hood Combination:
We replaced a Kenmore microwave/range with this one after only a year, so my liking of this model may be influenced too much by my disgust at that product failing so quickly! However, this one seems very good so far.It is powerful and heats food a little quicker than the old one. However, it also has a louder fan. The good news is that the old one never seemed to draw the smoke from the kitchen - this one is clearly functioning better. The controls are pretty intuitive, although some of the things you have to enter for thawing/softening require reading the help sheet. For a nice, basic model, I would definitely recommend it.

Bought it to match rest of appliances, three speed fan works good with some noise on med and high but it's a fan, draws heat fumes away from gas range in a kitchen with vent in a inside wall. Works pretty good at drafting away from burners. Old microwave would not vent as well and we would have fire alarm kick on due to carbin monoxide. Seems to reheat very well, once you give it the serving size without over cooking. It is larger than our old microwave so I selected large capacity as a PRO. no clue on energy....quiet as most microwaves I heard.

Great Features For A Great Price!
Good looking microwave that is very easy to clean and care for with it's removable food rack,rotating glass tray and stainless steel exterior surface. The range fan does a very good job of evacuating un-wanted smoke.Also has a nice and quite operation with enough power and space to thaw or cook anything I have tried.Well built appliance for a low price.

Never thought I would love an appliance
Appliances have always been purely functional for me. This is the first time I've picked out and purchased my own appliances. Most of the ones I have I inherited or came with my current home. So as I'm replacing I'm upgrading. I'm just amazed with all the bells and whistles on this My favorite settings are steam, soften and reheat/dinnerplate. It looks great and modern and matches my new whirlpool dishwasher perfectly. I'm currently shopping for a stove and will stick with whirlpool as well. My old whirlpool appliances have lasted over 10 years and I only upgraded for cosmetic reasons but I'm glad I did! I got a great deal and it's worth every penny.

Excellant value in an over the range microwave.
We have been very pleased with this microwave. We have tried many of it's features, including the steam settings with a purchased Whirlpool steamer vessel, with excellent results. Being able to easily clean the interior was one of the reasons we selected this model, and cleaning is as easy as advertised. Fan noise is on the loud side, but the performance results of this oven exceed any previous ovens we have owned.
