Unlike previous reviews, I did not find it noisy to operate. In fact it is quieter than my last one. I love the large see through window. Also an improvement over the older model. The only thing I did and do not like about either oven , is that you cannot broil unless the door is completely closed. It is hard to quick broil an item that you cannot see with the door closed. I understand that this is supposed to be a "safety feature" ( according to the salesman)but I would like to be able to brown an item without having to open the door at 10 or 20 second intervals to see if it is burning, which keeps turning the broiler on and off! If I missed a way to do this, Please let me know. I make a lot of garlic toast and find this feature to be very inconvenient. Overall, I am very pleased with my new oven. My last one was over 20 years old and had been repaired.

I've had my oven for only a couple of weeks and have already ruined the inside finish! Trying to protect the bottom, I lined it with an aluminum catch pan- only to have it melt to the the bottom. I can only get some of it off, and when I do manage to pull it up, the porcelain finish is ruined below. Unlike some other types of ovens, the bottom plate alone cannot be removed/replaced as the inside is one whole piece; So now, I have a new oven that will forever be scarred! Not to mention.... who knows how healthy it is to have aluminum baking in my oven... In the manual there is a very small note that says: IMPORTANT: To avoid permanent damage to the oven bottom finish, do not line oven with any type of foil, liner or cookware. That's it. That is not an adequate warning, and this issue certainly requires more than a note labeled "important." Clearly whoever engineered the oven and/or wrote the manual is not an oven-using person as most people I know line the oven with foil to protect it from spills! A much larger, prominent, and clearly displayed WARNING should be posted to prevent this issue. I am just sick to my stomach over this. Unfortunately, I was already a little disappointed with the oven before this happened as it take FOREVER to preheat- even when you are only trying to increase the temperature a few degrees; it seems to have to start a new heating cycle over instead of just adding heat. And, let me mention the fan runs ALL the time, kicking heat out into the kitchen like a furnace. Those were, however, relatively minor issues I was very willing to live with. But, in combination with the aluminum foil debacle, I am now very unhappy with this purchase. I was so exited about this oven as I bake a lot, but now I'm just sad.

Love the Digital Aspects
from Lake Forest, CA, United States
Comments about Whirlpool 30" Stainless Steel Single Electric Wall Oven:
I like the digital aspects of this oven. The one thing that is good, but a bit annoying, is that the fan stays on for quite awhile after the oven has turned off. I guess it's a good feature to have, but it's annoying to hear for so long after I'm done cooking/baking.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

worst oven ever
This is a POOR excuse for an oven. Fan very noisy and runs all the time oven is baking and cooling down after oven is shut off. Cool down time seems to last forever and is very annoying to listen to fan for all this time. Temperature is very uneven for baking, either burns or doesn't get done. Now my large window is all discolored after only using oven 3-4 times. It is purple and bluish orange colored. So disappointed with this Whirlpool purchase.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Nice oven, no major complaints
Oven looks very nice and functioned well but I havent used it very often, as I'm not much of a baker. It may be annoying for some that it takes a while to preheat and there is a fairly soft fan going during and after use. The sound did not bother, but if I baked a lot the preheat time was notably long.

This oven is good. I don't think its anything compared to my old Whirlpool oven, which is 15 years old and works like a champ. The reason I say this is because it takes double the time to heat up to desired temperature. I was really disappointed that this oven did not come with the up and down arrows to decrease or increase your desired temperature. Had I known this, I would not have purchased this product. The other thing is the little fan, its not a rocket engine or anything, but its very noticeable when it is on. If I could, I would go back to my old oven.

The oven has large capacity and large viewing window. Easy to use and ahs a pleasing look.
I have always loved my Whirlpool dishwasher and was thrilled when I saw our new home would have all Whirlpool appliances. But now I am very disappointed, after less than a month the bottom of the oven has warped and the porcelain in the warped area has cracking. This is not something that is covered by the Whirlpool warranty, as it is considered to be only cosmetic. I have also noticed the oven's temperature is much higher than what it is set at by about 25-50 degrees. I have to adjust the temperature of the recipe to avoid burning the food. And after the oven is turned off the fan runs for a very long time and is noisy.
Very nice oven!

I have had this oven since right before Thanksgiving....it holds so much at one time....great for the big dinner. It is noisy...I was not used to the fan noise. I am still smelling that newness...it is slowly going away. I use this oven 5 out of 7 days most weeks. The light inside is great. I love the large window. Overall...a great oven!

This oven came with our new house build by Pulte Homes. We were told it is a convection oven, but it is not. I am not happy with the oven at all. It takes sometimes forever to bake cookies and sometimes it bakes way to fast with the same temperature set. It seems to just bake in the middle and not on the sides. I will actually call your customer service to complain and have it checked as it is a brand new oven. I also have the feeling it decreases the temperature on its own without me canceling or changing the settings.

This oven for me is perfect. My requirements were that it had to fit in the space my old oven came out of with minimal modification; it did. It had to be sleek and stylish and easy to use; it is. It had to match exactly to other appliances in the Whirlpool family of products; it does. Everything about the over and the microwave its pictured with couldn't be any better. Great job Whirlpool!
NOISY, Slow Preheat (uses broiler), Can't read displays, Burns top while center left uncooked.
Just replaced all of our appliances with Whirlpool. We were most excited about the oven, but after only a few days, it has quickly become a huge disappointment. FIRST: The Fan is horribly loud. I have never had an oven of any type that made more noise than every other appliance in my home (including my clothes dryer). SECOND: The oven seems to burn everything on top while leaving the bottom and center of the food well undercooked. We have tried varying the rack positions and cooking on a lower temperature than what is recommended, but no luck. THIRD: The LED display on the front cannot be read unless you lean down and face it directly on or you are standing back far enough that you cannot touch the control buttons. This is a very nice looking oven, but I am better off cooking over an open fire pit.
