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.

I use microwave cooking for large batches of vegetables, often in larger sized crock pots with larger volumes of water in order to cover the vegetables and prevent burning on the surface. This microwave takes excessively long to heat the food and water to simmer temperatures (bubbling) at full power and then to complete the cooking maintaining simmer at lower powers. For example for a 6 pound batch of green beans which normally took about 60 minutes normal total cooking time in other microwaves, it took over 110 minutes total cooking time. On average, cooking my larger batches of vegetables was similarly prolonged, about 1.75 to 2 times longer than normal. I suggest that Whirlpool engineers look at their heat dispersal technology, using their special lining of the unit, which I think may be actually lowering the total power of heating of the food. If the microwave is only used to heat or reheat food, or boil a cup of water, the extra time won't be noticed much, but if one wants to fix a batch of rice, cooking for the normal time, it will come out soggy, and will take inordinately long to finish.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
We bought this microwave 2 months ago and will not work. Lacks express cook which was on previous Whirlpool model we had. Key pad is too small to operate in low light. Not happy with failure in two months. This lack of quality control will affect our decision to buy Whirlpool products in the future.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Was buying a new range and figured that we could also use this microwave to make better use of our counter-top space. Love all the different cook settings, it is very quite and works great. The only thing that needs improvement, is the beeper for the timer, is not hardly hearable.

I bought this microwave about a month ago and have been very pleased with it. Great design, a lot of features and very quiet operation. Only down side is, it only has 1000 watts. Was very satisfied with Lowes installation. The contractor was very efficient, neat and courteous.

from Kathleen, GA, United States
We bought this microwave about a month ago after our Samsund gave out. The price of this unit was better than expected and it was very easy to install. ONe of the grade features about this microwave is the non-stick surface. Very easy to clean up an spills.
Whirlpool never fails to impress me!

I would like to give this Microwave an Excellent rating, but I can't just yet. It does everything well. Cooks better than expected in that I have had several different units over the years and each one seems to have a variation in the amount of time that it takes to cook stuff; so each new unit is a learning experience in the cooking time and in learning to use the newer features. Thus far I have no complaints
Does great at heating. Love the tones and display.
