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

Whirlpool does it again!
from San Antonio Tx
Comments about Whirlpool 27" Stainless Steel Electric Double Wall Oven:
We replaced a 1984 Whirlpool double oven that was too costly to repair, so we were a little biased towards Whirlpool. We were very proud to see the made in the USA sticker. Only a small adjustment had to be made to install the new one in place of the old one. It is an outstanding unit, just as the old one was. We highly recommend Whirlpool to anyone looking for quality, performance and a good deal! Keep up the good work Whirlpool! God bless Randy L. Robinson
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works good, but noisy
from ballston spa, ny
Ovens work well for cooking, however there is a rather loud fan that runs the whole time the oven is on and continues even after the oven has been shut off.
Love this product!
By Terree the nurse
from Pearland, TX
We are very pleased with this model. All of my Whirlpool stainless appliances match, are very sleek, the glass takes up a large portion of the front and looks clean. The ovens can be noisy if you want silence, but we like the fact that when you turn the oven off, you can hear it cooling off.

Don't buy this, you'll be sorry
from Benton Harbor, MI
I bought this 2 weeks ago to replace a whirlpool oven that died after 9 years. I was in disbelief when I turned on the oven and heard how loud the fan is. The hum, rattle & whistle is extremely loud & irritating, and can even be heard upstairs. A tech came out and said "this is the design". They will not take it back because it was installed. How arrogant of Whirlpool to foist a poorly designed product on the consumer. My only consolation is that it probably won't last any longer then the one I replaced. I have a whole kitchen full of Whirlpool appliances. I will not be buying any more. How sad.

I have had my new double ovens about 6 weeks and think the temperature needs to be calibrated. If I preheat it to 375, when it signals that it's preheated, it only reads about 325 on the oven thermometer I have in it. 5 minutes later it will read 375 but then 5 more minutes it will read 400! Is this the way it should be doing?
Very nice looking oven, really added to my kitchen.
from Apple Valley, CA, United States
My wife and I purchased this oven for our house. It works very well, looks beautiful and is easy to operate.

Just got our new double ovens. They look so beautiful in the kitchen, and now I need to upgrade the rest of the appliances because they pale in comparison. I've only used the oven once. Worked fine right after installation. Nothing difficult to figure out. Easy control panel. No issues so far.
Noisy, but perfect food
By Aunt Cookie
from New Jersey, United States
I replaced an old microwave/wall oven combo with this double wall oven a couple of months ago, and I love it. It is slow to preheat, and the noise from the fan is annoying, especially as the fan runs quite some time after the oven is shut off. BUT the temperature is always exact, the rack heights are ideal, the food always comes out perfectly cooked. Having both ovens is great, and using both is not actually any louder than using one. Controls are really easy to use, spills are so easy to wipe up I haven't needed to use the clean function. Installer found the unit surprisingly easy to put in. Overall, we are very satisfied.
Love the features of the double ove

Got this as a replacement when my Whirlpool double oven went out and the part was no longer available! Still learning new features!!
DO NOT BUY THIS OVEN.
from Henderson, Texas
I am very unhappy with this new oven. The fan sounds like you have an airplane in your kitchen. Takes forever to preheat. The timer is complicated to use. The main issue is, does not heat effectively, does not register temperature correctly, and things do not bake correctly. Bought this oven Nov.25 2014.
