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

I purchased this about a month ago and it is super beautiful, with such a great clear view of your food cooking. Easy to operate with great access of getting food in and out of oven so easily.
from Los Angeles County, CA, United States
bakes very well but takes forever to cool off during which time it makes a loud whirring noise, attractive and fine for baking and roasting, but why all that noise ?
Balanced Product - Works as Advertised.

Bought this product in December and worked great for my holiday cooking.
Very nice and easy to use
from Merced County, CA, United States
Cooks really good and easy to keep clean. Lots of room and wide window also helps keep an eye on the food while baking.
Quiet as a whisper, sleek as a runway model

I bought a new double oven. My old one was a whirlpool and was 16 years old. I had just recently remodeled my kitchen so I was very concerned that the new oven would fit into the space because it would cost a lot to re configure the space. Everything went well and it slid into the cabinet just fine. I have to admit that it warms up faster than the old one and heats more evenly. I also am very proud of its sleek look which can compete with any more expensive brands. No need to spend more.
Beautiful sleek design

Have had this new oven about two months and LOVE it! It looks beautiful in my kitchen and works like a dream. Love the roomy interior and so easy to use the controls. I am well pleased with it!
from KY, United States
Love, love it!!! I did a lot of research before buying my double oven. My house was built in the late 1970's and the cutout size for my oven was limited. I decided to give up a set of cabinets to give me a double oven instead of a single oven. The design of the ovens are classy and very updated. I would recommend the Whirlpool brand. They are roomy and cook very evenly. I absolutely love the large viewing window which was the biggest reason I decided on a Whirlpool. Awesome job, Whirlpool.
lovely appliance - poor information
By none that you may use
from Ohio, United States
A lovely replacement addition to my kitchen. The direction/information booklet was almost certainly written by an engineer who neither has used the particular oven nor I suspect has never cooked. There must be a better way!
Sleek exterior, large windows, bright lights!

What would the holidays be without ovens? Without DOUBLE ovens?! Just in time for Thanksgiving my bright, shiny, sleek double ovens arrived. Not normally the optimum time to adjust to new appliances, Whirlpool saved the day just in time. The computerized system is easy to learn. While the preheating time is definitely longer than my previous Whirlpool ovens, the high powered fan keeps my kitchen cool. I'm especially fond of the hidden heating element feature, as any spills or overflows are not sizzling away on the element, but are quickly eradicated by the constant clean capabilities. Great purchase just in time!
