We installed this microwave about 2 months ago after our last one fried & so far we like it very much. In the store they told us that we could defrost a roast in here & it would not be gray, we we haven't done a roast yet but we have defrosted ground beef & chicken & miscellaneous foods & they do come out perfect & not gray or half cooked! Reheating using the automatic controls works very well, items are evenly heated & not melted plastic on the outside edges. And as for just heating something up, it is very quick & powerful. Love the clean release coating on the inside. Just wish they could make an over the range microwave slitghtly smaller, they seem to be getting bigger. But overall we do like the microwave very much. A user manual would be nice to have as this has so many options it would be nice to know how to use the microwave correctly.

I wish I had read all these reviews before buying this microwave. Had it for only 18 months and it started putting up the F7 error code. I'm debating if I want to spend any money at all to fix it based on how many people have had the same problems over and over after it was supposedly fixed. We have an entire house full of Whirlpool products and love them, but I can not express how strongly dissatisfied I am with this one. If Whirlpool doesn't realize that they have a problem here and make things right, I'll never buy another product of theirs.

this is a great replace product
this is a probably the best micro wave around it is very well made and is in a middle or the road price not cheap not to expensive but is designed very well and the inside is so pretty and is very easy to clean. This is a replacement for my last whirlpool that lasted only nine years and this one is 10 times nicer and designed so much better.
Our new Whirlpool Microwave is a big improvement over our last microwave that came with the house. We love the additional features.
Perfect addition to my home.
Have no compliants about this microwave hood other than the light should be placed further forward to reflect onto the food, not the back of the stove. The microwave is efficient and easy to clean. Looks nice in my kitchen.
This microwave offers a lot of features for the price. Great addition to the kitchen.
Love this stainless steal microwave
This is a great microwave! It always cooks food evenly and is easy to clean. It also has plenty of room and I love the added rack!
I do love Whirlpool
I liked my old microwave so I purchased the same kind but am not near as happy with it, I have to constantly clear the key pad after using it. I also have to open the door to make it reset. It tells you to open door. The book did not help with any of these matters.

Good looking microwave, fair performance.
This microwave has been in use for 1 year and has fair performance. On occasion, it will not heat anything if it was used immediately prior.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

A Lemmon... Do Not Buy
Unit was purchased as part of an appliance group offered by the builder. In 5 months we have had to make 3 service calls (third call is waiting for the repairman to show). Same parts had to be replaced each time. There must be some design defect in the product causing the magnetron to burn out. We are on our third. The defects are pretty much the same as other reviewers except ours showed up while the unit is under warranty. Whirlpool is honoring the warranty. They even offered to sell us an extended warranty - how nice of them....
Buy at your own risk
This item was purchased as part of a kitchen remodel. Within 2 months following installation, it stopped working. After replacing the mag and other parts, it still didn't work right. After two more failures and attempts to repair by replacing the mag, making a total of 3 mags in 2 years, it was finally determined that the mag was not the cause of the problems, but rather that the wave guide was melting. I received approximately 25% of the original cost to obtain a replacement. Based on my experience and that of others as posted in the reviews here, it's obvious that there is a major problem with the model.
