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.

Easy instillation / User friendly control panel
from Baton Rouge, LA, United States
Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
Installed unit in less than an hour. Was able to operate control panel without the use of instructions because its so easy to navigate. Very stylish and goes well with my 1956 O'Keefe & Merritt gas stove.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Have had the microwave for a few weeks and works great. Easy to install took about 20 min. Sense cook works very well. Seems to cook fast and even. Easy clean up with no stick finish inside. Great Price too.

I love my microwave and how quite it is. I was very easy to install with the directions included. I would love to get all the other appliances needed for my kitchen.

We purchased this microwave a month ago and so far it has been great. Works wonderfully and is very quiet when on.
Very nice upgrade

I love this microwave. I replaced my 12 year old whirlpool with this new model. It is a high quality product and I expect it will last as long as my last!
from Missouri, United States
Love it! So easy to use even my husband can use it! Easy to clean. I love all the features!
It is a dependable product but lacks features that I thought were surely included
from Knoxville, TN
Light under microwave: Poor and focused on the back of the stove. A central or front focus would be a major improvement. One stroke keys for frequently used times is missing but available on most microwaves. It is a nuisance to always have to punch "time cook" then the time required and then start. It has been many years since I have had to follow this procedure for times from 1 minute through 6 minutes. Not at all current.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Love the interior, so easy yo clean.
from Michigan, United States
Very easy to use, cleans beautifully inside and out. Light us bright and fan is strong. My only recommendation would be the volume of the timers , they should be adjustable. Definitely needs to be louder.
Easy to use with great features

We needed to replace our old microwave and selected Whirlpool because of all its features and its ease of use.

Wish I had replaced my old microwave long ago. This one has so many new features and it runs so much more quietly. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
