First I'll say I haven't used each function yet, but I am very impressed overall so far. The person before me states the light level is poor, but I do not agree. The light level is what I need and I have no complaints. I think sometimes kitchens are set up in that there isn't sufficient lighting to begin with. Why would you expect a microwave light to compensate for that? When the microwave is operating it is quiet. I am impressed with the fan, quiet and appears to be strong. I was concerned about the heat coming off my gas range but so far the auto sensor fan has not come on, so now I just wait and see if it does when I have more than two of my large burners on. The interior is sleek and nice to see instead of the standard white. I spent considerable time researching what is out there to replace my GE that died after almost 11 years, and found this one had all the features and style I was looking for.

Microwave is performing well overall. Controls are easy to use even with LOTS of options. Interior is, so far, really non-stick and easy to clean. Exhaust fan exhibits some notable air flow noise, but has a better draw than my previous experience with similar units. Now the other half of the story... Upon installation found bracket that supports rear of unit was barely sufficient; one end of bracket bent under the load during installation. Rather than trust a questionable bracket, I swapped it with the remounted Maytag bracket (also a Whirlpool product) that it was supposed to be replacing. Upon turning on the surface range light, it blew almost instantly - disappointing but OK, minor. When I went to replace the bulb discovered that during assembly, someone had stabilized the light bracket with a large glob of silicone caulk (see photo) that also caulked in the bulb (likely damaging it as well). Caulk was carefully removed with a razor knife, bulb replaced, and all are now working well. Could only recommend this product line with reservations given anomalies observed and overcome during installation. Whirlpool reputation could benefit from some better Quality Assurance during design and assembly... Not everyone is willing to improvise as such on a new purchase.

Good Entry Level Microwave
from Eden Prairie, MN
Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
We needed a new microwave when our old one was beyond repair. We are planning a major remodel, so jus wanted something that was going to provide good performance/looks for 12 months. Positives: looks nice, performs well, easy to install and use. Negatives: LED display can only be seen when you are looking straight on towards the unit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great Looks and Works Quietly
from Spanaway, WA
Easy Clean Up
from Griffin, GA
I like the convenience of having a nonstick interior as a feature on this microwave because it makes clean up a snap. A second feature that I enjoy using is the automatic fan that adjusts it's speed without manual adjustments. This microwave oven is loaded with features and looks good too
Great Microwave @Great Price!
I'm no expert but it seems the microwaves are getting better & cheaper each time we buy a new one! This has been our nicest looking appliance with the most features on sale for less than all our others!
Large capacity and quiet
By Diane the Mail Lady
from Alabaster, AL
I bought this microwave about a month ago and I love it.. It has a censor in it to recognize the cooking time and it is very quiet. It also accommodates larger and bigger bowls because of its depth.
By Marlene the homemaker
We have had the microwave for a month and are happy with the size and capacity. The power is great. The controls are a bit hard to navigate. It is quiet. Be careful with installation to be level. Good value for the money.

Came with new house. Easy to use and really like the two level ability.
from Reno, NV
This was a replacement for a similar whirlpool product that "caught on fire!" This one seems good, at just a month or so of use. So far, so good!
from Gainesville, GA.
Love my Microwave by Whirlpool,have always been pleased with Whirlpool appliances.
Best microwave I have ever purchased
from Palm beach, Fl
I bought this microwave a month ago and I am extremely impressed. There are a ton of features and settings which allow me to hear up all of my favorite foods. Another plus is the sound, quiet and has a great ring to it
