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

Looks nice, cooks OK, HORRIBLE fan noise
Comments about Whirlpool 27" Stainless Steel Electric Double Wall Oven:
As soon as the oven is started a fan begins to operate. It continues long after turned off, making a terribly obnoxious whistling noise. I do not recommend you buy this oven.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Okay double wall oven
By Jean loves to bake
from Londonderry, nh
I bought this double wall oven about a month ago. I was very excited to finally have the double ovens. I am surprised at how loud the ovens are and the bottom oven doesn't seem to retain the set temperature as well as the top oven.

Looks Good, Cooks Good, but it's Noisy...
from New Jersey
It's a very nice oven. Only downside is the fan/blower is noisy and whistles. This continues for up to 30 minutes after you finish cooking. I called to make a repair appointment, but then found out that the loud fan was considered normal. Other than that, we like it. Much better than the old GE we replaced.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So far this has been an awesome oven. I really missed not having an oven for a couple of weeks. I've been cooking in it almost every day since it was installed.
By Cookie Mac

I am very disappointed in how loud the fan is on my double wall oven. It is very embarrassing to cook with people in the kitchen. We called the appliance store and they sent someone to replace the fan. The new fan is just as loud so the repair man said it just must be how it sounds.

The internal fan runs constantly when the oven is on. It's loud and very annoying and you cannot shut it off.
Double Oven, loud when running
By AZ resident
from Oro Valley, AZ
Disappointed with the noise the oven makes when running. I understand it's the cooling fan, but I just replaced a double oven that was 17 years old and it didn't make any noise while running. We tried to exchange for another model, but all reviews stated oven was loud when running. Sounds like a windstorm.

Love the double ovens but hate the noise the cooling fan for the touch pad makes.
Good replacement choice!
By Susie macs

I have had the ovens for several months, use it regularly, and have yet to require any cleanup. Sounds wonderful that spot cleaning requires only water.
The fan is really as LOUD as everyone says.
from Dallas, TX
I always read reviews with a grain of salt as I think more people take the time to review something if they are unhappy. So I wasn't too worried when most of the reviews said that the fan in these ovens were loud. Well, I should have given more weight to the fact that so many people mentioned the noisy fans because they are extremely loud, no joke, they sound like gale force winds are blowing through my kitchen. I love to bake and now I dread it. The fan noise / whirring is so irritating I can not stand to be in the kitchen. Now I think long and hard before I decide to cook something in the oven for dinner. I am truly disappointed in these ovens. I have never regretted a purchase as much as this one. The ovens themselves are ok, they don't run true to temperature so that is also annoying - both top and bottom run hot. Please, please listen to this review and others and DO NOT BUY these ovens.
