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 and design - looks great. Not as powerful as my previous microwave, so it takes a little longer to heat food.
Prompt delivery, perfect condition.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:
This is the cutest little microwave. Not as powerful as the monster we had before, but it takes up so much less room. I'd rather have the counter space and wait a little longer for my oatmeal. Having the dials underneath is genius so you can open the door with a plate in front of the door.
Fits in a small space
Had an old Sharp Cube for many years that was small with very simple controls. This one is more powerful and sophisticated, but fits in the same space. The beeps while setting the timer are annoying, probably because I'm just not used to it. Overall I'm happy with the purchase so far.
ABT informed me that the Item was backordered, and let me know when it shipped. It arrived sooner than expected, in good condition.

Just like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this microwave is just right - not to big, not too small. I like the white color of our oven. It heats well and isn't too noisy (someday there will be a silent microwave but not yet, I guess). I am very happy with it so far. Have only had it for about a month but have had no problems.
The microwave came well packed (in original box), quickly and undamaged.
This unit is a simple well constructed machine that does a great job. Great style and being a corner unit is simply awesome. It has a very small footprint of 14 inches square. It easily fits under our cabinets in the corner without sticking out. It has a small capacity. An eleven inch plate and about 5 1/2 inches high. Perfect for us. We use it to reheat items and it does a great job not only in power but efficiency. The controls are simple. Press the start button to add 30 seconds. Three times equals a minute and a half. The light comes on when the door is open and while the oven is on. It is not noisy, does not rattle, and the beeping from the buttons is not overly loud. I do not believe the sound is adjustable. I have not looked into it since it is relatively quiet and I do not like noise. It is more expensive than other small microwaves but the quality and the small footprint makes it a bargain. I would easily buy it again. It is simply was an excellent purchase. It looks great in the kitchen without the hideous look of having a huge item on your counter top. Best of luck.
ABT was excellent as expected not only in service but price as well. Nice to see a quality Chicago-land company over the years continuously doing it right.
LOVE IT fits in a corner and is a great size inside
from Grand Island, New York
I am so happy the inside can handle a nice size plate
