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 unit will NOT work with a power inverter. I started with a 1800w Thermo King that was installed by the factory I then upgraded to the 2500w Cobra with a peak output of 5000w and still have nothing. I have called customer service and they simply told me it is for household use only and hooking it up with an inverter voids the warranty. Sad that this is the only thing I've been able to find that will fit nicely in my truck but it's nothing more than a boat anchor at this point. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!

Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:
The first microwave (same model) that I received seemed to overheat and shut itself off. Whirlpool sent me a replacement and it works perfectly. I like the small size - it easily accommodates a dinner plate or casserole dish but fits perfectly into a corner.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Countertop corner microwave
from Coloma, Micigan
I love it, we do not use the microwave much mainly to reheat things or popcorn. This ones fits nicely in a corner and takes up very little space.
Awesome size, can be loud
from Tampa, FL
Bought and received this microwave earlier this month. We mainly got it because it was small and didn't take up much counter space. It was perfect in that regard because now we have so much more room on your counters then we did before. The only setback I would have with this Appliance is that it can be loud. We don't microwave too much so we're okay with it.
Perfect fit on the counter
from Chicago, IL
I love the fact that it fits in the corner and saves counterspace.
Great microwave-takes up little counter space
Comments about Whirlpool White Countertop Microwave Oven:
Bought this for my mom in an assisted living apartment with a very small counter. Perfect for her needs.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery prompt. Arrived the day after I ordered it!
from Long Island,NY
We needed a compact microwave to replace a small Samsung we had that had stopped working and was no longer available. After several days of looking online we found this one and it's absolutely perfect. Has plenty of power and actually the previous one.
Great little microwave
from North Smithfield Rhode Island
This microwave fit our needs perfectly, being compact we are able to use a dinner size plate to warm or cook foods in it. Also its compact size affords us extra counter space in our camper.
from Charlotte, NC

Could be Better
from Baltimore MD
I replaced my 20 year old Sharp Half-Pint because the timer dial finally wore out. I've owned this Whirlpool for a month now. It works as advertised. However, the absence of rubber feet on the bottom of the machine allows it to move all over the counter when opening/closing the door. Also, it gives off an offensive odor during operation which takes a while to dissipate.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Third time was a charm

Comments about Whirlpool Silver Countertop Microwave Oven:
I was attracted to this microwave due to its compact size. We recently remodeled our kitchen and only had a small cabinet space to contain the microwave. It is indeed compact. It fits most things we need to heat fine. The only issue with the size is the height. We often do Uncle Ben's microwave brown rice. The pouch has to be crammed in there to fit. Surprisingly, it still cooks the rice but that will give you a sense of how much space there is. The biggest negative is that the quality control on the units is spotty. We ended up getting 3 of these from ABT before we got one that had no issues. The first one had a strange electronic issue with the timer where it would randomly reset itself mid-way through cooking. The door on the second one didn't close completely so it rattled so loud you wanted to scream and that also affected how well it cooked. The third one, knock on wood, has been finally been good.
From a customer service standpoint, ABT has been awesome - 5 stars. We were technically past the return date on the first one because we had ordered the microwave as part of our kitchen remodel and had not actually opened and used it until the kitchen was done. ABT didn't blink at that problem and sent me another, as well as a free shipping label to return the old one. And then we had to return the 2nd one as well - again ABT didn't blink. Great and responsive service!
