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:
We have had this range for about a month but last night was the first time we actually used it other than short test runs. Cooked well for 30 minutes, then shut down and power is now off. Circuit breaker in home did not trip. Not sure what's next, call in warranty I guess.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

By laura who bakes a lot
I am pleased with design, look and performance of my new Whirlpool Convection oven. The oven racks have a great feature that make them easy to pull in and out. I really like the covered heating element at the bottom of the oven making it so much easier to keep clean. My first pound cake - baked at Convection 325 - came out evenly browned and beautiful!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We purchased this over a month ago after extensively researching all the wall ovens available. We love the room of the interior (you can cook an entire meal) and the way it looks outside fits in beautifully with the kitchen. I love the convection feature for the way my baking makes me look like a pro. I would recommend this product a thousand times over. I was a bit concerned after reading all the reviews about the loud noise that went on for quite a while after turning it off, however I have no idea what they were talking about. It's not an issue at all.
Excellent wall oven
from Crestline, OH, United States
We have lived with our awful outdated kitchen for 18 years. I spent many evenings looking at ovens on the Internet. I read reviews, I looked at features, sizes and prices. I decided on the Whirlpool Gold Series when we finally updated our kitchen. I absolutely love it. It's quiet, efficient, and I especially love the extral large window and the 3 racks. Thank you Whirpool

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.
