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.........

Whirlpool gold experience
By Peace love dogs

Love the oven. Large on the inside. Good even cooking. The fan is new to me and took some time getting used to, I like the convection part for potatoes.
beautiful and convenient
from Houston, TX, United States
We replace our 36 year old 24" double oven with this beauty and couldn't be happier. We have only used it a few times so far but it has performed flawlessly. This being my first convection oven, I was not used to the fan running after cooking ended. That is all part of new, faster, better technology and I love it!
This convection oven works great and looks great, too! Very clean lines. Loaded with features. The delay bake is different from what I was used to in that you set the amount of time you want to delay rather than the delayed start time (i.e. you tell the oven to start cooking in two hours), but this grew on me quickly.
still getting used to it

Love the big window in door and roominess. Still having trouble getting baked rolls and bread to the golden color I like.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Fits very well was able to install the 30" where we had a 24"...needs a longer cable would have been easier ... cooking is very good gotta learn to use a keypad. .nice interior easy to clean..not noisey as some have claimed, yes there is a cooling fan but not loud at all can watch TV in the kitchen talk, not an issue..if want quiet don't buy a convection and you can talk all you want while supper is cooking, and after supper do dishes by hand a dishwasher is lots noisier.. Recommended. .
love at first sight
from Clovis, CA, United States
I love everything about my new oven EXCEPT it's noisy! Even though I am not using the convection mode. I guess the fan runs all the time. I love the size of the oven.......I could roast a small turkey and two sides an still have space to warm up some rolls!
Great oven, quickly heats up, easy to clean, even baking temperature and looks great.
Does what an oven should.
from Fresno, CA, United States
Have had the oven for about a month and it works as it should. Heats up fast, bakes and cooks very evenly. All the digital features are pretty straight forward and easy to use.
Very pleased with this oven.
from Virginia Beach, VA, United States
I bought this oven 3 months ago based on its #1 rating in a popular consumer magazine. I was hesitant because of online reviews citing the loud noise that it made. I was pleased to find that it is no louder than the previous oven it replaced. In fact, the noise level is so low that it is not an issue. The oven is very large and cooks well. The only thing I don't like is the control panel. I do not understand why the buttons are so small when they are surrounded by so much blank space. Also, the clock is difficult to read unless you are standing directly opposite it and would be much easier to read from anywhere in the kitchen if it were larger. Please use some of that blank space on the control panel in future models for the clock and the buttons.
