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 is my second microwave. The first one stopped working while under the one year warranty and Whirlpool kindly replaced it at no charge. The first oven had a temperamental door latch from the day we took it out of the box. This trait makes operating the oven difficult, at best. Press on the door to get contact. Lift on the door to make contact. Slam the door to make contact. Ugh!!!! And, the first oven was very, very under powered. It took 5 1/2 minutes to heat a mug of water for tea.
The replacement unit is much better. The latch on the door works perfectly. Much better microwave power. 2 minutes for that mug of water to heat. BUT! While this is not a mechanical problem, I am very dismayed and distracted br the huge finger (thumb?) print on the inside of the door glass! The door is double paned, door glass and oven interior glass, so there is NO way to clean it off. Maybe some people would not be bothered by this, but I think it should never have passed a final inspection.
I only use the oven once or twice a week. Heat a mug of water or reheat a leftover. It is tiny and all it is designed for. It is ok for my purpose.

        I bought this microwave a month ago because of my limited counter space and its unique corner fitting design. It has been wonderful! It is just the right size and has excellent heating capability. It also looks so modern that when people come over they think it's a TV! Highly recommended.

        Space saver but at what cost?

              Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:

              Our 10 year old microwave died and we needed to replace it so we invested in this one. Whirlpool has a great brand name! Unfortunately it short circuited less than a year after purchase (daily use). Warranty kicked in (excellent customer service) but sad that microwave did not live up to brand expectations. Would be great if used once in a while.

                Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:

                I looked at this little microwave for a year. I wanted to save counter space but wasn't sure if the interior would be big enough. It's small but it fits a Progressive 6 cup rice maker and Pampered Chef's small micro cooker. It also seems to cook quickly for a 750 watt; maybe the small interior concentrates the microwave. It cooks frozen entrees including Stouffer's family sizes, bakes potatoes, and does frozen vegetables beautifully. If you put a small amount of pasta in one of the pots I mentioned and cover it with salted water you can cook it for 17 minutes and have pasta for one or two. It's a good buy even though it's a little pricey. I would highly recommend it.

                  I replaced my perfectly good microwave oven with this because of the considerable space saved on my countertop. It looks good, is easy to use and clean and cooks well. What more could you want?

                  I was very pleased with my purchase of this microwave oven from Abt. The purchase and delivery were flawless (and free!) and it was twenty dollars cheaper than the same item on Amazon. Thank you Abt.

                        This little dynamo is efficient, compact, reliable.
                        I bought it about 2 months ago, and it now is one of my go-to appliances when getting meals ready.
                        The size is just perfect for my limited kitchen space.

                                        I do not use a microwave to cook in so for my needs this microwave is exactly what I have been looking for for years. It looks and fits perfectly on my counter. I have received many compliments. Tank you Whirlpool, your products are the best!

                                              Very happy with it. Small but plenty big enough for the jobs I need a microwave to do. Great that it fits neatly into the corner and takes up so much less space than a regular rectangular microwave. Just one minor issue: wish you could stop the time and not have the timer only go to zero.
