We've had this now for several weeks and I just LOVE IT! It replaced a huge 1300 watt that sat above my stove on a shelf. I now how my little microwave on the counter where it should be. I have a very small kitchen and limited counter space and the size is just perfect. I was a little concerned that it might be too small but that hasn't been the case at all. Who needs a huge microwave anyway? Even the wattage difference is better. Our old microwave would explode everything unless you powered it down. And speaking of... this has a wonderful reheat feature. You hit the reheat button (automatically changes to 75% power) and then the start/30 second button as many times as you need. It's just so easy to use. We have done standard size popcorn in it (the bag doesn't start to turn right away on the turntable until it starts to pop and expand) and it came out beautifully. Does baked potatoes much better than our old one! Just 3 little beeps when it's done. Everyone who sees this microwave, loves the look of it. They sometimes think it's a TV set. Fantastic design! Thank you, Whirlpool!

This unit will NOT work with a power inverter. I started with a 1800w Thermo King that was installed by the factory I then upgraded to the 2500w Cobra with a peak output of 5000w and still have nothing. I have called customer service and they simply told me it is for household use only and hooking it up with an inverter voids the warranty. Sad that this is the only thing I've been able to find that will fit nicely in my truck but it's nothing more than a boat anchor at this point. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!

Great microwave-takes up little counter space
Comments about Whirlpool White Countertop Microwave Oven:
Bought this for my mom in an assisted living apartment with a very small counter. Perfect for her needs.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery prompt. Arrived the day after I ordered it!

We needed a compact microwave to replace a small Samsung we had that had stopped working and was no longer available. After several days of looking online we found this one and it's absolutely perfect. Has plenty of power and actually the previous one.
Great little microwave
from North Smithfield Rhode Island
This microwave fit our needs perfectly, being compact we are able to use a dinner size plate to warm or cook foods in it. Also its compact size affords us extra counter space in our camper.

Could be Better
from Baltimore MD
I replaced my 20 year old Sharp Half-Pint because the timer dial finally wore out. I've owned this Whirlpool for a month now. It works as advertised. However, the absence of rubber feet on the bottom of the machine allows it to move all over the counter when opening/closing the door. Also, it gives off an offensive odor during operation which takes a while to dissipate.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Third time was a charm

About Me Casual Cook
Comments about Whirlpool Silver Countertop Microwave Oven:
I was attracted to this microwave due to its compact size. We recently remodeled our kitchen and only had a small cabinet space to contain the microwave. It is indeed compact. It fits most things we need to heat fine. The only issue with the size is the height. We often do Uncle Ben's microwave brown rice. The pouch has to be crammed in there to fit. Surprisingly, it still cooks the rice but that will give you a sense of how much space there is. The biggest negative is that the quality control on the units is spotty. We ended up getting 3 of these from ABT before we got one that had no issues. The first one had a strange electronic issue with the timer where it would randomly reset itself mid-way through cooking. The door on the second one didn't close completely so it rattled so loud you wanted to scream and that also affected how well it cooked. The third one, knock on wood, has been finally been good.
From a customer service standpoint, ABT has been awesome - 5 stars. We were technically past the return date on the first one because we had ordered the microwave as part of our kitchen remodel and had not actually opened and used it until the kitchen was done. ABT didn't blink at that problem and sent me another, as well as a free shipping label to return the old one. And then we had to return the 2nd one as well - again ABT didn't blink. Great and responsive service!

We bought this microwave to replace one in our travel trailer. It had to fit the existing space.With a small adjustment to the shelf opening it fit fine. Have only used it on one trip, so far.The bright blue digital clock was a bit much at night. Would be nice if it could be dimmed.For road travel, it needs to be anchored to the shelf. I fabricated a tie-down system, but it would be nice if it had anchor points but in.
A great little machine

Love love love this little microwave. Just what we needed for reheats.
Great for Studio Apartment
from Knoxville, TN
Takes about 2 minutes and 50 seconds to get 40 degree refrigerated water to a boil for tea. I'd say that's only 30 seconds more than a big microwave. Seems to reheat food nicely and evenly.Cons- Slides around on counter-top, needs some sort of non-skid bottom. Also, reading the negative reviews, many people complain about the short longevity of the unit, so I purchased a 3 year Squaretrade warranty for 22.39 with a coupon.
