We've only had this combo for a few months, but are pleased. The lower oven is spacious and temp is spot-on. Holiday baking and entertaining was a breeze. Haven't had an opportunity to master the convection feature yet. The microwave is very quick compared to the 20-yr old model it replaces! The combo is very nice looking, and the stainless steel is nicely finished, resisting fingerprints somewhat better than the new fridge. We were challenged to find a combo unit that fit into a cabinet configuration we didn't want to alter. While this unit was perfect width/wise, it's a full 6 inches shy of the height we needed. Whirlpool offers just one trim kit, which extends the height by just about two inches. An internet search led us to a California company that produces trim kits that cover the gaps! The finished look is great. Two minor functionality negatives to note: fairly loud fan noise when baking, and the fan runs for quite a while after the oven is turned off. Also, the microwave door opens "top down" like the lower oven door, meaning you have to reach over it to get to your dish. A little awkward for someone who is 5'3" (need a step stool to wipe down the back wall!) but not a big deal. Overall, the oven combo is an attractive addition to our remodeled kitchen.

Save your money. This is the worst oven I've ever owned. I replaced the previous model (4 year old) and I'm sorry I did. First of all, quality control. This oven arrived with a dented door and an extremely nosey fan motor. I receive a message every time I use the microwave oven to open and close the door before it will operate. I don't know what they were thinking when they designed this unit. From the front, it looks great. If you have it mounted on the end of your cabinet like I did, you can see the mounting screws and unfinished metal edge. My older unit had a stainless steel trim piece that covered this. The microwave fan stays on until you open the microwave. Normally, when something is done cooking, you get a beep and the microwave shuts off. This one continues the fan running forever or until you open the door. How can this be energy efficient? Ad this with the extremely noisy fan and its very irritating.

Comments about Whirlpool 30" Stainless Microwave and Oven:
The microwave oven combo works great and looks good in my kitchen. I only wish that instead of the lay down door, that they would make a side swing option for we height impaired people. For installation ease, it would be nice to plug into the old fashioned outlet in lieu of the hard wired tail.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Combination microwave wall oven
By Sweet home Alabama
from Chelsea, AL, United States
We purchased this to replace 14 year old microwave and wall oven. I did not realize this was one unit. My husband had to modify the space so that it would fit. There was an open shelf between the existing microwave and oven which had to be removed. It looks great and is fairly easy to operate. The fan does not bother us at all. I was concerned about it because several of the reviews mentioned how annoying it is. My 10 year old is tall enough to operate the microwave.
Oven Great - Microwave Not So Much
from United States
The oven and the convect oven work nicely. Also, it is quite a nice looking unit. However, we have had nothing but difficulties with the microwave. Many times it says the door is open, when it is not, and you have to reopen the door before the microwave will work. And, almost daily, we have difficulties with the timer. It "locks" up somehow and will not allow you to set it. It's good that I have a timer on my refrigerator, since the microwave one refuses to work for us.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
so far so good on oven microwave wall combo
from Indiana, United States
Easy to install and matched existing hole in cabinets. I did find the bottom vent before the oven quite sharp so I filed it down. Cooks better than the old one and bigger inside.
Looks great, can be difficult to use
from Gaylord, MI, United States
Have the same keys that control both the microwave and oven units can be confusing. I also don't think the microwave heats consistently. Some items get hot very quickly while others do not. Our previous microwave which was 10+ years old seemed to work better. The oven does heat very evenly and we love the fact that the door is cool to the touch so that there is no worries when the kids are running around the kitchen.
Big and cooks great
from Silverdale, WA, United States
We purchased this oven micro combo to replace a 20 year old model. We have a big family and needed something that not only cooked well, but also fit a lot of food. We've used it to cook 6 casserole dishes (9x13) at the same time, roasts, anything and always cooks to perfection. Some people complained about the fan running after the over turns off, or it being too loud when operating, but its a convection oven - they have fans - and it isn't obnoxious to the point that it matters to us. We've had the unit now for 2+ months and couldn't be happier.
Very loud fan
from Sacramento, CA, United States
This oven came with a new house we bought. There is a loud and annoying whistling sound coming from the fan when it is in use. It continues to whistle long after the oven is turned off. We can hear the loud whistling sound throughout most of the living areas of the house. Annoying to the point that we are looking to replace it due to the noise.
from MN, United States
I am in awe of the space and convection power of this oven/microwave combo! I can bake six dozen cookies in 16 minutes! I enjoy cooking again!
LOVE THE LOOKS
from fort myers fl
I love both the flat top and over microwave comb. I wish I had picked out one that had the knobs on the side not in the middle. Otherwise I love both
