Turntable glass tray is bigger than our old countertop microwave, and now we have more counter space for other kitchen gadgets because it takes up less space when we put it in a corner location. Touch pad is REALLY easy to use, quick touch response.... Plus it looks like the face of a cute japanese robot. :) At first I was afraid of the wattage amount but it's perfect for the heating area. For 750 watts, typical cook times are better than expected.

I bought this product pecause it has a popcorn button. It did not state in the description that the popcorn button is only for individual bags of popcorn, and it is not recommended to make a large bag due to the size of the microwave. Would have been nice to know this up front. Once you learn to use the controls they are ok, but without the instruction manual, it is impossible to learn on your own.

Good Basic Microwave
from St. Joseph, MI, United States
Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:
This is a good little microwave for basic use. I find it a bit short in height. Fits nicely in a corner and takes up very little counter space. Seems strong enough in power.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sooo Square, but sooo good looking!
from Washington, DC, United States
This is a very nice microwave. Though I have only use it for reheating coffee and defrosting items, its been a very good replacement for my old unattractive microwave. I purchased a 'white' and yet its really a two-tone because the front of unit is black. So, if I had put more thought into it I would have purchased all black. We have placed it on a shelf over that sits over the counter. Though its a stable unit, we are very careful opening the door because its higher and if there is something hot it could be jolted out.

When we renovated our kitchen we removed our over the range microwave / hood combo and replaced it with a stainless commercial style hood. That left us with no microwave. While looking for compact countertop models I stumbled on this one. It's the only one of it's type that we found. It is true to form, simple, quick, and fits a large dinner plate. It's PERFECT for our needs. Quick reheats, and warming things up for the baby. No frills, just space saving performance. What a great machine.

We love the small but powerful size. After all who actually cooks meals in a microwave anyway.Large microwaves are a thing of the past. We absolutely love this microwave.

I've had this microwave for a little over a month and love it. The space saving aspect is its best feature--I have so much more counter space. Can't believe someone didn't think of that before. At just 700 watts, it's not as powerful as the big boxes, but for what I use it for--mostly reheating--that's a minor issue. Fits a dinner plate and answers all my needs. A most welcome purchase, highly recommended for those who need space and make minor demands on a microwave.

Extremely happy with this purchase and giving a try. The only downfall, the timer cuts off at 30 minutes.
So happy with my chic new microwave!!!
from Los Angeles, CA, United States
I'd been looking for a quality microwave that didn't take up a lot of counter-space, but I wanted a name brand and a good-looking design, preferably in stainless steel (or close to it). Nothing I'd seen got me enthusiastic until I spied this Whirlpool model online - and with it's unique design, I snapped it up! A smaller, rectangular microwave would not have made much difference with my space issue (see photos), but the curved back of this one is just what I needed! Plus, the bottom part is elevated somewhat, so no more stooping over to peek in or place/remove plates from it. I was initially a little worried about changing from a 1100-watt microwave to a 700-watt, but I only use it for heating frozen meals and reheating leftovers, and actually like the wattage better as now I don't ever overcook anything :-) The space I have now on that counter is dreamy and I'm super-happy all around with this purchase! When I posted the photo on FaceBook, I got a ton of "likes" and questions about it from my friends :-)

Fits nicely in a corner freeing up valuable counter space. Easy to use intuitive controls. Quick start add 30 second feature for speedy instant heating. Power percentages of 25% 50% 75% or 100% gives basic flexibility for defrosting and reheating. Nice large clock.
