About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:
First one would turn on immediately when plugged in and would not turn off unless you unplug it. Even when it was on, it did not heat anything at all. Returned it for a second one, which works but smells bad. This was true right out of the box and even after weeks it really hasn't aired out. It's like a weird chemical smell.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The Whirlpool WMC1070 microwave did not work out of the box. It powered up fine, but it did not heat anything up. I even ran it on a five minute cycle to just heat up some water and the water was cool to the touch after removing it from the microwave. This is not a knock against Abt. The fault lies more with the quality of the product then the retailer.

About Me Avid Cook
When it arrived, I noticed the door didn't pop open as it should. It seems to have been slightly damaged in shipping but I didn't notice that until I started using it. So now I have to open and shut the door several times for it to even work. The power level button doesn't work. And the power is very low. So I have to double the time I nuke most things. It also heats very unevenly. The outside will be bubbling and splattering all over the microwave while the inside is still cold! This has been a terrible product and I won't use this company for appliances again.

Compact and Efficient
from Matawan, NJ
I generally use my microwave to reheat meals or to heat frozen entrees. It seems to heat evenly and thoroughly. The display is large enough to see the clock from across the kitchen and I like the fact that if you forget something in the microwave the alarm sounds periodically to remind you to take out whatever you left in there. I've always bought large sized microwaves but I decided to get a smaller one to conserve space and I'm glad I did. Even though it's small in size, it fits a dinner plate perfectly. The cooking time isn't that much longer than on a more powerful microwave oven either.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Features are ok.
Microwave cooks well! Outside plastic does not hold up! Door, handle, and vent both have cracked. Replace door, handle and vent once, already. Cracked again within a week later.

Great for the price
from Fairfax Station, VA
Great Microwave. Small, so it fits on a shallow shelf, and works great.
Great little microwave
I bought this microwave for my daughter's dorm room and she loves it! It is easy to use and heats well for a microwave of its size.
