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

Comments about Whirlpool 27" Bisque Electric Double Wall Oven:
I bought this a little while ago. So far i love it. It preheats faster than any of our other ovens. The large capacity is wonderful! The only thing I have found not to my liking is how loud the fan is when cooling down.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best update ever
We bought this a month ago and have loved having it. It was super easy to install, warms up pretty fast and cooks very evenly.
Extremely happy with performance and convenience
from Monroeville, OH
We have had the unit for about two weeks. It has performed above our expectations.
Noisy Fan After Finished Baking
We've had this oven for just over a month and have become very disappointed with it. It replaced another Whirlpool oven that was 20 years old and quiet as a mouse. This oven has a fan that runs continuously after being tuned on until 30 - 45 minutes after cooking. A repair man just left and said that just the way it is! I object! This is a poor design, Whirlpool do better! With the newer homes of an open architecture and design, this is very disturbing and annoying to hear whilst we are eating. Please come up with a fix for this or we will need to look for another solution from your competitors.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Double wall oven
from Renton, WA
Heating seems to be uneven. Hard to change oven temp without starting over.
I love double ovens and the steam clean option is great.

This is replacing our old GE double oven that is around 20 years old. I am so happy for my new oven.

A beauty to behold
NEVER BUY A WHIRLPOOL OVEN AGAIN
from MISSOURI CITY
This is a terrible double oven. It makes a high pitched whistling sound whenever the ovens are on! You can it it in adjacent rooms. Service technician said this is normal for these newer models and there is nothing he could do to make it just have a normal fan sound like my previous model. The temperature control is also too low by about 25 degrees, undercooking everything until I discovered problem.I would rate a ZERO if I had that option.

We have had ours for about a month. We love the rapid warm up. It cooks very well . The fan is a little loud , but other than that it goes very with our other Whirlpool Appliances.
