Going through the life expectancy of appliances you come to a fair conclusion. Oven's, although extremely important, are not the most glamorous of appliances. We decided there were anomalies developing in our old faithful friend, and that it would be a great place to start our upgrades. We looked, studied, compared, scratched out heads and we continually returned to Whirlpool, our long time trusted brand. Technology changes the way you look at everything, and this oven brings with it features that set it a apart. AccuBake Temperature Management System senses differences in air temperature that naturally occur within the oven. It chooses which element to apply in order maintain the setting desired. Consistent temperatures help assure a thorough exposure to the heat despite rack position or location within the oven. The Whirlpool brand's addition of a convection cooking system delivers exceptional results and faster cooking times. TimeSavor Ultra convection option peaked our interest and set it apart from our other choices. Simply put, Convection Cooking uses a fan to intensify and more evenly distribute the heat within an oven. Efficient circulation and even heat decrease normal cooking times. It's a great addition and adds to the versatility of the oven. We were impressed with the size and the hidden lower element. It is the visual absence of the element that catches one's attention, and three racks instead of the usual pair. Rapid Preheat is everything it says it is. The one thing we both agreed on was the cool down system. In the past it was leave the door open after use in the winter, keep it shut,and let it cool down on it's own. When this oven is turned off, there is a cool down circulation fan that runs until the oven temperature is reduced. There is a circulation of room air through the oven's case to cool it and exhaust it through a top port. Now the first time this happens, you might be prone to start pushing buttons to stop it,but once you adapt to it's operation and understand its purpose it is a nice touch, especially a warm day. Steam cleaning can be performed if needed by adding water, to a small reservoir on the bottom formed by a small ridge. It heats, converts the water to steam and the rest is history. With no exposed element on the bottom it has allowed a greater capacity and extra rack space. We only had one small mishap, and it cleaned up quite easily. If you use foil or teflon catch pad presently, you probably have uneven temperatures in your oven. You can just toss them with this oven. So far, so good. There are all types of adjustments, including Recipe where you enter all the information regarding cooking times and temperatures, and it will make all the necessary adjustments to cook them in convection mode and you can adjust the thermostat to compensate temperatures to your personal tastes as well. We've learned a little more with each use, but have yet to be disappointed.

This oven has a fan that runs all the time NOT just in convection mode. Very poor design regarding the vent system. Touch controls require a hard push (not really touch control) I bought another small oven just so I don't have to listen to this one during any cycle. Wasted my money this time. Don't you.........

Cooks and bakes evenly

Comments about Whirlpool Black Single Electric Wall Oven:
I bought this oven to replace a GE Profile and was very nervous it would not compare. However, it is a much better oven. Everything comes out perfect.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Ease of Use A+,
from Tehkummah, ON, Canada
Had to purchase a wall oven quickly to replace our 6 year old AEG that burnt out on Thanksgiving Day. I needed one immediately because our Xmas Tea was scheduled for the next week and I had a lot of baking to do. Consumers Reports rated yours the best and it is quite true so far. Thank you.
lots of useful features
We bought this a couple months ago and wish we did this a long time ago. The settings and features are great especially the hold warm feature. It cooks much faster and more even than our old one probably due to the convection feature. We haven't had to clean it yet but expect that to be a snap with the steam feature. Looking forward to first turkey in it this month. Very happy with it, go for it if looking to upgrade.

Good quality product. Looks great around our contemporary style kitchen.
from Cliffside Park, New Jersy
My new wall oven is amazing. Everything cooks evenly and timely. The oven has great Sabbath features. It's fun to use it.
Nice even cooking
from Hyattsville, MD, United States
The oven heats quickly, is very quiet, and cooks very evenly. I can't wait to try the convection feature - as soon as I learn what that is.
Well...I'm not so sure
from Winnipeg, MB, Canada
It's taking me a while to get used to the new heating method. Long preheat time and hard to adjust heating while you are baking with the oven. Oven cools when you change the temperature and I have ruined a few batches of cookies. I now know not to do this. I do like the really big oven space and the many rack positions. I know it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks.
The size of the oven is incredible!
from TRE, Nevada
This is the best oven I have ever owned. I could not wait to show my neighbors how big it is and how well it cooks. The shelves easily come out and can be arranged to several levels. The broiler heats quickly and cooks evenly, just like the rest of the oven. I was able to cook a 20 lb. turkey and still had room to cook two other dishes on the top shelf. Amazing.
Love this oven- PERFECTION!
from Savannah, GA, United States
We had an older oven that worked just fine, but we splurged when replacing our cooktop. The white ice line is beautiful. We have white cabinetry (that we need to paint after custom cutting this oven to fit) to coordinate and loved hints of stainless steel without being too much! It bakes like a dream, too! Every meal/creation has come out great!
from Virginia, United States
This convection oven is wonderful. Actually makes me glad our old one broke. All foods turn out wonderfully and features very handy. Easy to install on our own.
