Replacing an old double oven, we had several options in our price range. This model was on the short list because the 27" model wasn't a stripped down version of the 30" unit. We weren't looking to remodel just yet, so keeping the cabinet size was important. I think that most of my comments should apply to the single-oven model and the 30" version too.As I mentioned in the summary, this oven is pretty loud. It's not a convection oven -- it doesn't have a fan that circulates air inside the oven chamber. It does, however, have a blower in the cabinet that I assume maintains a more even wall temperature. That blower is a lot louder than the convection fan we had in a unit in a previous home. It's our loudest appliance in the kitchen, excepting the disposal. Louder than the range exhaust fan, fridge or dishwasher. Not a big problem, baking is usually done in the daytime here, but it's something you just won't notice in the showroom.Overall, for about the same money we could have dual self cleaning (this one) or top-only clean + mild convection. We opted for the double clean, and haven't regretted it. Baking doneness is even enough, I think the cabinet blower helps with that. And it's electric, not gas, so evenness isn't that big of a worry anyway.Preheat to 350F takes under 8 minutes in a 72 degree kitchen, and the display shows the temp. during that time.It's got two clean modes. The regular one is the type you're used to: oven door is locked shut for 3 or 4 hours while the oven is cranked up to maximum temperature and spills are burned to ash. The kitchen gets hot, and a little smoke wafts around as all those drippings are incinerated.The other clean mode is the "steam clean." You follow the instructions on the display, pour a measured amount of water on the "floor", close the door and let it go. Since it's just boiling the water it doesn't get very hot at all, and the whole cycle takes about a half hour. When done, you wipe the (hopefully) loosened gunk off and mop up the excess water -- it leaves more than I expected. Recent messes are generally softened enough to get them fairly clean. It's not a replacement for the high-temp clean, but is more of a maintenance step to be used periodically, especially after making a mess.The control panel/display is very good. Meaningful text on a large display prompts you through all the steps needed to clean, bake, broil, use the cook timer (which turns off the oven when done) and the kitchen timer. The kitchen timer is independent from the cook time, so you can use them both at once. The only function I can't figure out from the display prompts alone is the delayed bake ("start time"). I tried it for grins, didn't figure it out, and never bothered to check the manual -- probably won't do it, since I don't figure I'll ever use that anyway.Bonus points for the controls: If you enter a time like "90 minutes" (instead of 1:30), is doesn't freak out and turn off the oven like a couple other brands out there (you know who you are). It just counts down the 90 minutes -- just like you'd expect it to.The doors and windows stay cool enough to be touched without discomfort. This is a plus with kids in the house.Quirks. The cabinet blower keeps going after the oven is turned off until it's cooled down. Also, every so often, the oven shuts down for a second or two, then resumes everthing like nothing happened. Temp stays set, clock doesn't lose time, timer keeps right on counting. If it weren't for the noisy blower, you'd probably never notice. It's not frequent or predictable enough for a service call, but I might do it before warranty is up.

I purshased the oven and after using it for one day I told the dealer that it was unacceptable due to the high sound level that I presume is from the cooling fan. It sounds l;ike my microwave when it is running. It will be removed from my house by the dealer and I will buy another brand. I believe the product is defective

Runs Hot - do not buy
Comments about Whirlpool 27" Stainless Steel Electric Double Wall Oven:
While the oven is very aesthetically appealing, it runs extremely hot - around 75 degrees higher than what the digital readout says. This is disappointing for a brand new oven. I would return it but it's already installed in my cabinet and don't want to go through the hassle.
Merchant response: If you are having issues with your Whirlpool Oven , please call our appliance service department at 847-967-8830 for assistance. Your appliance comes with a one year parts and labor warranty so there should be no cost for service.
Good oven but noisy
from Reno NV
The oven only has elements at the top, so it takes some getting use to. Need to adjust the racks so you don't burn food. The fan is pretty loud. Also, the letter is small and light. For older people it is hard to see the words or keys. I'm sure the lighter color on the white oven looks cool, but it's really not practical.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love the big front glass & lg interior, but not noisy fan.
By MN Mom
from Minneapolis, MN
Bought this double oven to replace original ovens in our home. Absolutely love the large glass windows on the doors. It makes it so easy to see inside. Interior of these ovens is nice and large - much larger than my original ovens. I can put two cookie sheets side by side on one shelf in this one.The only drawback is that the fan that runs when oven is on and when it is cooling down is quite noisy.
Good double Oven
from Omaha, NE
We bought this oven a month ago and we like it. It is a bit noisy but is otherwise a good oven.
By Retired Mike

We've had this less than 1 month and it's still a learning experience. There are no bottom elements (at least that can be seen), only the top element. There are 2 pre-heat modes, fast and faster it seems (that's a plus). As soon as you turn the unit on, there is a fan that is pulling air from around the box and controls (to keep them cool I suppose) and blows out the bottom. Keeps your feet warm if nothing else. The fan is a lot noisier than I would have expected, but I suspect we'll get used to it now that it's installed. So far, baking is what you'd expect with a new oven - still working out the differences from what we had to what we have.The oven timer (not the cook time) seems to clear the oven temp for my wife sometimes. She swears she's not hitting the wrong button sequence and it's acted up on me so I need to carefully document the process to be certain it's the oven and not us.

love the sleek look
Mine of 45 yrs died...and am so happy that you make one that will fit into the place the old one went. It so far has met all my expectations.

Bought a month ago,beautiful oven cooks evenly,arrived without a mark
Great look and features
from Wallingford, CT
I bought the ovens for a kitchen remodel so it was a month before I could use them. I've just done that and I love them. They look beautiful and work great! There is a whistle noise when they're on but it doesn't bother me. There's usually so much going on in the kitchen you forget about it. I'm looking forward to cooking my Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners and desserts.
