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.........

Comments about Whirlpool Black Single Electric Wall Oven:
This oven was very easy to install. The adjustable feet that came with it eliminated the need to fill in the gap that would have been left from my old oven. Convection system works very well.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Self Clean = Blown Fuse
from Washington, DC, United States
After less than three weeks of ownership and some holiday cooking, we had a spill that needed cleaning up. The steam cleaning didn't work so we used self clean mode. It ran, finished, cooled off, and a little later the control panel went completely dark. Yesterday the repairman came and said running the self-clean mode unless the oven is very very dirty blows the fuse. Apparently the soil in the oven helps dissipate some of the heat. Further research on line implies that the hidden cooking elements (below the floor and above the ceiling of the over) contributes to this problem--difficult for the extreme heat to dissipate. Probably why some owners have complained about the fan running loudly for a long time. I find it unsatisfactory that an oven has been sold with a feature that is inherently flawed in that use of that feature will cause the product to blow a fuse. To add insults to injury, the fuse has to be ordered and a second service call is necessary more time at work missed) and/and the fuse is at the BACK of the oven so the whole oven has to be removed for service. How is this a good thing? The only way to ensure this doesn't happen again, the technician said, is to not use the self-clean feature. Really and at this price?

Moved in 10 months ago and love this oven! It warms up quickly and the keep warm setting is wonderful when entertaining or waiting on your teenager. Great convection performance too.

We purchased this Built-in Electric oven on December 12, 2012. We prepared all our Christmas Dinners and everything turned out great. Temperatures were very accurate. We can highly recommend this appliance
Top of the line product!
from Ada, Michigan, United States
Wow, the size, consistency and overall quality of this oven is hard to match. The huge interior, matched with convection abilities, and tremendous versatility makes this oven a no lose product. And it looks great in our new cabinets! We matched a microwave oven and had it built in above the oven. The hidden heating elements are wonderful, the racks spacious and easy to slide and move. The racks even have a small design on the front that makes them easier to grab with your oven mitts. The only thing I wish it had, and this is very minor, is a timer that you could set partial minutes on instead of only whole minutes, but I'll get used to that!

We got our new oven just before Thanksgiving, and it was great to have for the holiday. It fits in the spot left by our old oven, but is considerably larger inside. We could bake a pie while the turkey was still cooking. We're learning to use the convection feature--that will take some time. The only thing we don't like is that the oven fan is a bit noisy.

I replaced a lol the appliances in my kitchen with Whirpool appliance and I am so happy I did. I love them. They are very attractive and work great!
from San Antonio, Tx
I really love thee ease of operating this oven. It is a replacement oven for me. I didn't realize how much I needed to replace my former oven until This one was installed. It bakes to perfection and I love the convection as it saves so much time. I would highly recommend to anyone needing to replace or buy a new oven.
So far, so good
from North Royalton, OH, United States
So glad to have an oven once again. I have found the temperature to be spot on when cooking/baking, and the convection feature works great. Like the brand for reliability and durability.
I bought this oven a month ago, and so far it has been great!
