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 double wall ovens with steam cleaning
from Jackson, MS
Comments about Whirlpool 27" Stainless Steel Electric Double Wall Oven:
I purchased my ovens about a month ago. I am so happy that I did. I haven't quite figured out how to work all the settings yet but I'm having fun trying. I like the size of the ovenss. Having both ovens will make for easier holiday cooking.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A beautiful new look in my kitchen
from Moraga CA
It is too early for me to give a fair evaluation of the stove performance.The modernistic design is a plus. As to the performance, I still have reservations: slow to preheat, noisy, upper shelving too high, smoke (because stove is new?)...I have not tried the self cleaning yet.
from Bella Vista, AR
Beautiful design, great features, but very poor noise abatement.When oven is on, you can't hear people talk.Poor engenering
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great look and function. Somewhat loud.
from La Crosse, WI
My wife and I purchased this a few months ago. Everything is great about it minus the fact that it's a little loud when preheating. The fan(s) immediately start, and then remain on until it cools down enough which takes pretty long.
Love this oven

from Goshen, KY
The capacity and number of shelf options are terrific. It is sleek and looks great in the kitchen.
Love my new ovens! They are beautiful inside and out. Plenty of room easy to clean
By Susan J
from Houston, TX
I was very disappointed the first time I used my new oven. It looks nice and works just fine but the fan system is way too loud. This is something you cannot check for before purchasing because they are not on in the showrooms.I actually had them made a service call because I thought it wasn't working properly. Not at all thrilled.
Love my new ovens!
from Tyler, TX
I replaced 30 year old double wall ovens with these beautiful, sleek Whirlpool ones and I could not be happier! Not only are they perfect for the space I had available, they work fabulously! I can't wait for the holidays!
Way too loud
It's ridiculous how loud the fan is on this oven. I never leave reviews or feedback on items I purchase but this is so bad I felt compelled. We've had the fan replaced and it didn't help or change anything. The heat that it blows into our kitchen while cooling off is annoying but I understand the reason behind it. There is NO reason why the fan has to be this loud and annoying. I would not suggest anyone purchase this oven without hearing/testing it first.
Too Long to turn off.
from New York, NY
I like this oven in the fact that everything heats evenly. The thing I find very hard is the fact when you turn the oven or broiler off, it takes quite a long time for it to shut off. It also takes a long time to heat up for baking or roasting, although this is not annoying. The length of time it takes to turn off is too long and very loud. I also find the kitchen is extremely hot while oven is on. I did not have this experience with my last double oven (KitchenAid)
