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.

Press, Light and Bake
By Mia in the Gables

Comments about Whirlpool 30" Stainless Steel Single Electric Wall Oven:
(1) It is very hard to see and find what features i.e. bake, broil, clean, etc. It will also be a good idea to have all the features in the panel LIT so one can find it easily and know which one to press. (2) Another disadvantage is that this oven is for a very strong person especially with their hands in order to push the bottoms and get results and the oven ON. (3) This oven does not toast /bake evenly and is very different from the Whirlpool oven I had before. I guess it's true: "they don't make it like they used to".
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The only thing my wife and I have an issue with is the over does not heat up fast or cooks food all the time way through.

Cooks like a dream!

I had been without an oven almost 1 year. I researched ovens with Consumer Reports before making this major purchase. I take pride in my cooking and baking and after baking Christmas cookies in my new oven I knew I had made the right choice. Each batch came out evenly browned and the temperature seems to be right on. I look forward to using this for many years.

I bought this oven to replace a previous Whirlpool oven, which had been dependable. Like the oven and it's even heat. Hate the electronic timer. Adding a minute or five additional minutes after the original cook time was insufficient, is a messy process. Sometimes all I can do is cancel all and then reset the bake time and then the timer. And then the oven wants to go back thru preheat. It seems like all the extra button punching could have been made simpler.

My old oven broke down 2 weeks before thanksgiving. Cooked for 25 people in a new oven. I was nervous but it preformed beautifully. Love the extra large window and sleek look. Couldn't be happier!
from Seattle, Wa.
First time I used it I thought Oh Boy I,m stuck with this thing.It's so loud,compared to my old oven.Really is this what we can expect . I read up on all the different ovens opting out of a convection this time because so my reviews said the fan or double fans where a nuisance,plus my old Decor was annoying.So Sad and Disappointing
love all the features, especially the appearance inside and out,
from Hartselle, Alabama USA
I love my new oven and using it all the time. It's so attractive an appliance and especially like the easy controlling features on the control panels No knobs to clean, etc, the cooking rack feature was something I hadn't heard of before and had to get used to but really am enjoying every feature of the wall oven.
