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.........

Hate this oven!
Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Single Electric Wall Oven:
This oven takes forever to heat up, and the fan runs continuously and is extremely annoying! I am sooooo sorry I bought this oven! Just installed it a month ago, but am already planning to replace it. I put a different brand in an apartment I just renovated, and am very happy with that one. Generally I like Whirlpool, but this product is a major disappointment.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Looks Good, Works Great
from Atchison, KS, United States
Quiet for a Convection Wall Oven, bakes in Less time at a lower temperature. Fits perfectly in the original cabinet where our old Whirlpool oven had been since 1977. When making our choice of a New Oven, we called Whirlpool several times and were given technical help from courteous, clear speaking knowledgeable people at American locations.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Buy some earplugs

Whoever tested this oven didn't know that open kitchen/living/dining areas exist. If you have a kitchen where you can close the door, it would probably be a fine oven. But it just doesn't work in an open floor plan. Not only loud when you are cooking. (About the same whether you use convection mode or not), but also loud for 10-15 minutes after you turn off while it cools down. Great for entertaining (joking..... you do have to talk very loud to hear each other). We end up having to schedule the food to be done about half an hour earlier, open the door and let it cool off and then reheat it and the food. That will reduce the cool down time to a few minutes if you open the door. What a pain!

Love the large window and the quiet cooling fan. Temperature heats accurately and everything works well. We've had the oven for a few months now.
sweet addition to our home
from Hazard, KY, United States
First time convection user and I cant believe it took this long, I almost didn't get it because I read a review that said it was noisy, I don't know why they said that because you can barely hear it, and the results of baking especially breads and cakes are just awesome
This is a great oven!

My new oven cooks everythhing great It looks great & cooks great. What more can I say!
from Warwick, RI, United States
It's still quite new, but so far we're pretty impressed. The steam-clean feature is nice for cleaning up drips before they get too baked-on. The window is much larger than what we had.
Great baking experience
from Fitzgerald, GA
As a part-time caterer, I rely heavily on consistency in my products. This oven provides the most even baking of any oven I have used in the past several years. Cakes, pies, casseroles, etc. are baked evenly throughout without having "gooey" areas or uneven cake layers.

Comments about Whirlpool White Single Electric Wall Oven:
Though it is an attractive oven and would blend with either stainless steel and white appliances, it was a surprise that it is so noisy. The cooling fan which runs all the time makes an annoying whistling sound. If you choose convention baking, the fan that runs during that cycle makes a loud humming noise. Both together makes it unpleasant to use and I find I am avoiding baking so that I don't have to listen to it. Bought this oven based on a Consumers Reports review. I am disappointed. Abt installers were great though.
A Joy to Use
from Chickamauga, Ga
I compared wall ovens for a long time before deciding on the Whirlpool Gold® 5.0 cu. ft. Single Wall Oven with SteamClean Option. This oven will do it all, and does it well. The features are a snap to operate and my baked goods never looked better. The oven interior is so roomy !!! So you can cook for a large crowd with no worry. It can handle the day to day or the demands of the serious entertainer. Cleaning the oven is also a breeze. If you need a wall oven,let me, recommend this one.
