We live in a 35' motorhome. The old convection microwave that was in the motor home died leaving us with no oven at all, no hood vent, no light, no microwave. It was miserable, but we started researching to find the best quality Over The Range Convection Microwave we could find within our budge. We found this unit and compared it to others - hands down this was the absolute best deal.When my husband got it installed we were ecstatic! I've baked bread, used virtually every feature , and just have to say that this one does it all. Favorite feature - the steam/simmer; perfect rice, polenta, grits, veggies. I love the fact that it bakes evenly, and interior cleans easily.The vent fan is really amazing. I love the cooldown feature, the warm & hold, the melt/soften feature, and how beautiful it looks! My husband loves that I can now cook all of our favorite foods perfectly and that makes this passionate cook a very very happy camper! Oh - and it makes perfect pizza using a pizza stone on the round rack!

Have had unit right at 24 months and magnatron went out and must be replaced. Repair with parts and labor costs almost as much as the original new price and I can certainly get a good model at half the price. If you DO NOT USE Convection very often then DO NOT purchase a unit with it - not worth the money. This particular unit appears to have a major magnatron flaw for I have seen MANY complaints both on this site and on Consumer Reports. The company needs to discontinue or redesign this unit. To pay $500 for a microwave you expect it to last a little longer than 24 months average use.

SHOULD LAST LONGER FOR THE PRICE
from El Paso TX
Comments about Whirlpool GMH6185XVS Stainless Steel Microwave Hood Combination:
The inside door plastic at the latch cracked all the way across the door in two places. This expensive brand should be more durable and last more than two years.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Don't buy! Having to replace after 3 1/2 years light use.

Got this in my new home 3 1/2 years ago. Only light use. Never used convection oven. Magnetron went out and more expensive to replace then to buy new. Door handle broke after about 6 months use.

I bought this for my wife and the magnatron failed after about 2 years. We replaced the magnatron, and now it's failed again after another 2 years. The most insulting part was when I called Whirlpool, they implied 5 years is a long useful life for a microwave. I'm making sure not to buy another Whirlpool owned brand. I'm going with the brand that has a 10-year magnatron warranty.

I bought a microwave gold (accu wave system) 6 years ago at Island appliance in wilmington nc. The "vent" or piece across the length of the top is broken and I need another to replace it, it is 1.8 cu. ft. microwave, can you help?
from Medford Lakes NJ
We got our new Micro/oven a few weeks ago and are very happy with it. It has so many features that we are still working our way through the handy cheat sheet instructions they provide, but are very satisfied with the purchase. Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone in a small space (condo, small home etc.) that needs a nice extra cooking option.

I've had this microwave for almost a year. I am somewhat disappointed in it. The convection aspect is VERY loud. Also the popcorn sensor button seems to leave quite a few of the kernels still uncooked in the bag. Sometimes the bag doesn't even open all the way. At the end of the day it is still just a microwave even though I was hoping for a bit more.......
from Quebec, Canada
Love the interior size and all of the many features especially the cool down period
Versatile and easy to use
from Columbia, MD
I am still getting used to my new over the cooktop microwave. It replaced a GE that I had for many years. It does everything I need and then some. I will definitely try using the convection unit more for baking. I used it once so far. I have no reason to feel disappointed with this unit.
Wonderful features on my new microwave.
from Kentucky, United States
I bought a new combonation microwave to replace my 9 year old Whirlpool microwave oven that was still working. I love my new oven for its versaltility. I can use it as a microwave or a regular small oven.
