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 purchased this unit from Sears for a major kitchen renovation. I bought it primarily because it had the venting capability of 400 CFM's. After installing it I was dismayed to find that the venting capability is virtually nonexistent. It was so bad that I thought the fan was improperly installed, so I pulled it off the wall to double check it. Unfortunately, it was installed properly so it appears I am now saddled with an exhaust fan that doesn't suck. If you use the front burners on the range, and you have the fan on as high as it will go, steam from the pots rises straight up and blocks your view of the microwave oven. If you use the right rear burner steam floats up and to the right and goes under the cabinets.There is NO exhausting! None, zip, nada! It is apparently just a very poor design.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
This is a replacement for an eleven year old Whirlpool. It is exceptioanlly quiet and has easy to use features. The exhust fan mode is an improvement over our previous model. We like the 30 second extra feature and the jet defrost mode works very well. The easy clean feature is also appreciated.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I replaced all my kitchen appliances with Whirlpool products. Well worth the value!
A dissatisfied customer
from Selma, IA
I got this 10 days ago and we could tell at the start that is isn't as hot as our old one. Both are 1000 watts. It takes longer to heat everything and it doesn't pop popcorn satisfactorily at all. I have tried both with the timer and on the popcorn setting. I can pop it until it is kind of burnt and on a big bag, still had 123 (yes,123 or 2 Tbs.)of unpopped kernels in the bag.Our retailer will refund our money, but won't sell us another one, so where do we go from here? Aren't they ever defective? Have you never had this complaint before?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A Good Choice
from Santa Clarita
I'm very pleased with the outward look and the large, clean interior. It is very quiet and the alert sounds are nicely muted. It's very efficient, however, the reheat mode is a bit too efficient; I find it heats quickly so I have to hit stop before end of cycle.
just love it
