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:
My husband has been a builder for 36 years and all our appliances have been whirlpool, and he always recommends them to clients. But we had to replace our combo/oven unit several months ago and this unit I'm reviewing is the noisiest thing I have ever heard. The fan runs for a ridiculous amount of time after you turn oven off also. The microwave used to turn off at end of timer with a peep to let you know food is done cooking, but this unit has a fan that runs until you actually open the door. So it sounds like its still cooking, peep goes unnoticed. We will not purchase another unit like this until Whirlpool can do a better job. I read other's reviews before purchasing, and several of them mentioned the noise, but I didn't think it could be that bad, but unfortunately for us we are stuck with it. :(
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have been using this combo set for over a month and am very pleased with it. It is beautiful to look at and really compliments the rest of my kitchen. I can't wait to use it to it's full extent for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. The fan continues to run on the microwave until you open the door. Don't know why.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Excellent combination wall oven
from Long Beach, CA, United States
Love all the options such as popcorn, reheat, and defrost. They work well and are easy to use.
from Yorba Linda, CA, United States
Amazing benifits over our previous model. Performance was excelent in a smaller enclosure. Cooking time has been reduced and cleaning is fast and efficient.
I love having the microwave and oven combination - saves cupboard space and is really beautiful.

Noisy fan runs constantly
from Sun Lakes, AZ, United States
Great styling and looks good in the kitchen, but for the premium dollars spent the design is lacking. First the fan on the oven runs constantly and is loud, even with the convection feature turned off it runs and puts out lots of heat. I was told the fan runs to cool the electronics, but normal ovens do not need this cooling, and I do not know why this oven needs its fan to run constantly. The electronic buttons are hard to engage and you need to push hard to engage them, again for the price these controls should be touch sensitive such that you do not have to push them so hard.
Happy, Happy, Happy...Wife
from Dallas, TX
We recently have been upgrading many things in our home, such as carpet, laminate flooring, paint, etc. We have also upgraded all of our appliances. My wife got a new LG washer and dryer, a new Bosch dishwasher, and also a new Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator, and a new Whirlpool oven/convection/microwave. Guess what I got...a new garage door opener. What's wrong with this picture. Nothing at all. I'm extremely happy for my wife and myself as well. We have been married for forty nine years and each year keeps getting better and better. The fridge and oven are absolutely "GREAT". I never thought I would use the ice dispenser but I use it all the time now. I'm also comfortable drinking the water from the dispenser because of the filter system. And cooking in the oven, well, nothing burns anymore. As a matter of fact, she just now cooked 6 dozen chocolate chip cookies all at the same time. They're beautiful. Did I say we have 3 sons and 13 grandkids. All in all we are greatly pleased and happy with everything new. Oh, I forgot to mention this one thing, we're not selling the house, we're staying in it. That's a first for us.
Great features but overall too loud
from Nashville, TN, United States
I bought this appliance having been a previous whirlpool appliance owner and loving the overall look of the appliance. The appliance is easy to use but extremely loud. The fan motor for this unit runs before, during and after using the oven. Lesson learned. Always review products before purchasing or in the likely event you can request a demo get one. I would not recommend this product to others.
from Denver, CO, United States
Works very well and cooks evenly. I don't like the fact that the fan runs on the microwave until the door is opened (after cooking stops), but not a show stopper.
