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.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
I am very pleased with this microwave. The only drawback is that the sound it makes when it is finished is not quite loud enough.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So I was not expecting the fan to have a sensor. I must have missed that in the specs, but it was a pleasant surprise when the fan kicked on when the cooktop got hot. I like the look of this product and the presets.
Replaced a 9 year old GE Profile
After exhaustive comparisons I settled on this over the range microwave. Purchased for the useful features and ability to match the rest of my appliances (GE Profile). After a short learning curve for button locations I can say I like this microwave very much.

Bought this as a replacement, and wished I'd purchased this sooner. Clean, efficient, quiet, and looks great in my kitchen!
Needed to replace a nearly 30 year old microwave. Learning curve wasn't to hard for new one. Basics the same. Exploring new options.
I bought this in a package a month ago and love it. Microwave is a lot easier to use and has more features than the old one. Easy to use, clean and works awesome.

We needed more space in our kitchen, and an over the range microwave was just what we needed. It was the right price and quality we were looking for.
from Elk Grove, CA
Larger interior than my previous Whirlpool Gold microwave; easy to operate the multiple functions; easy to clean both the interior and exterior; design is modern with clean lines. Remodeled kitchen with four new Whirlpool America Stainless Steel appliances replacing all 17 yr old Whirlpool Gold appliances. Loved the original appliances and now love the new ones too!
