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.........

I purchased this oven to replace a Whirlpool oven that was knocked out due to a power outage. It was 19 years old! I always buy Whirlpool appliances. They have served our family well for over 40 years. It was easy to install. I had read some that were unhappy with the fan running on the new unit, but it doesn't bother us at all. If it does, open the door and it will cool faster. Not a problem at all. Love the features and it bakes beautiful cakes!

We previously owned a Whirlpool oven and microwave and updated our kitchen to include the same brand
Easy to use, cooks great and cleans easily!

I bought this 2 months ago after having a similar oven, different brand. This oven is so much easier to use and I love the steam clean option!
from Phoenix, AZ
It puts out alot of air and it's a little loud but it cooks great
Beautiful and reliable
I LOVE this oven. Bakes, convects and brooks consistently. We looked at other reviews and settled on this one based on the great price and beautiful, clean design. Only cons are that the button controls aren't very intuitive and after connecting, the fan runs for a while. Otherwise, we love it and definitely recommend.
looks nice, works fine so far, but takes a while to heat up (18 min), and it throws the heat outside on the bottom, so ones feet get really hot when working on the stop top and the oven is on. Takes over 1/2 hour to cool down, and the fan is "loud" while doing so. Roomy, plenty of rack rows.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Does the job and looks great.
from Florida, United States
I live in Florida and it is summer so this oven has not yet gotten lots of use and I am still learning when and how to use the convection oven. I chose this oven despite prior reviews that the fan is noisy. It is but it is a pleasant sound (sounds like a wind tunnel ) and it actually serves as a good reminder to make sure the oven is off when you are done. I would buy it again. No regrets.
Does everything it promisee
from Seattle WA
We have had this oven for 2 months and absolutely love it. The temperature holds to cook food in the exact time called for in the recipe. The big window and oven light allows you to watch it as it cooks through the entire process so you don't have to be constantly opening the door to check.
Hate this 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.
