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.

Spectacular little microwave

About Me Avid Cook
Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:
For retirement we moved to a small 1957 ranch with limited counter space and a huge, ancient microwave above the stove. We preferred a range hood, but the microwave issue was a problem -- until I discovered this sweet little microwave. The small footprint fits perfectly in our little kitchen, and it's simple to use yet powerful. It's more expensive than larger models, but it's worth every penny. The black models looks sleek and modern. Love it!
Service and delivery comments:

Love the look and size of this unit. It really is perfect when counter space is limited. The only downside is that the 'buttons' are hard to see (black on black) and there are no easy-to-push buttons for 1-5 minutes as in other microwaves. Seems to get anything over :30 seconds, one needs to keep pushing buttons until the desired time appears. Perhaps I have not yet discovered an easy shortcut.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I don't have a lot of space, so I like this design. It's quite powerful for a small microwave. It's also simple to use. A friend of mine looked at it and called it a "humdinger!" :)

Very happy with this microwave for our tiny lunchroom at work. Plenty of power, easy to use,...and it fits!
Worked less than a year
from Severna Park, MD
We rarely use a microwave so we only needed a small one. Loved the look of this, and it was functional for the first 10 months or so. Now, it arcs every time the glass turntable is inside. I have tried to clean the glass but it did not fix the problem. Glass should not cause the microwave to arc.
