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.

My GE Profile broke Christmas day. We had installed it new in 2007. The following day we bought a whirlpool 2.0 cu ft replacement. I like it just fine.nothing fancy but works great. Hoping the whirlpool will last longer than my more expensive GE profile. Price was good.

Works well. A lot of options to scroll through but you cannot make the beep any louder.
This works well for me....but,
By That Girl in MD
from Gambrills, MD
This microwave replaced my "old" Whirlpool Gold microwave. This one works well for everyday use. However, there are a couple of things that should be addressed about the design of this particular microwave in future models. First, the tones given off when something is finished cooking could or should be somewhat louder. Although it is a pleasant sound, it is not loud enough for someone who is hearing impaired to hear them clearly, especially when you have the exhaust fan feature running. Second, the front control panel of the microwave is set up nicely; however, it is really hard to see/read for someone visually impaired (white printing on a light grey background). Next time approach...Whirlpool needs to think about this when designing future models.

Works well. It is not high quality and the door was not put on straight so it is slightly ajar and bothers me. It is attractive and I would probably like it if it didn't have a cheap crooked door.
from Keystone Heights, FL
Happy with it except for the fan. The exhaust fan makes entirely too much noise.
from Florala, AL
Microwave cooks great. The power became intermittent after about 8 months. Customer service was quick to respond and technician found some lose connections which he corrected. No problems since then. The thin plastic film over the touch pad begins to fray and looks unsightly after a few months.
Elegant look, quiet operation

This elegant look microwave compliments our kitchen. It is the quietest operating microwave I've ever owned.
