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.

Perfect size microwave
from Bellflower, CA
Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:
My kitchen has no space for a microwave of the normal width. Whirlpool put the controls below the door which allows the unit to fit in my kitchen. Although the power is less than those I have used in the past, the cooking time is the same. Wonderful!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Don't let te small size fool you
from Matawan, NJ
I love this little microwave. It's the perfect size! The rounded back makes it fit nicely in any corner. It has an amazing power for a small microwave. Fits a dinner size plate which winds up being perfect because I don't cook in it, just use to reheat or heat up food. Very easy to use.
Everyone loves the look!

Out of all the cool gadgets I have in my kitchen, the microwave always cathes everyones eyes and tell me how cool and unique it is. =)
Perfect Size and Shape!
from Eugene, OR
Fits into the corner of the counter which a short person (that's me!) can't reach. Makes formerly unusable space functional.
