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 White Microwave Hood Combination:
I use my microwave to warm up items that are already cooked or to heat up beverages. I like that it is powerful and quick. My least favorite item is the alarm. I would prefer simple beeps.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
This is an excellent microwave, but is very hard to install - the unit must be lifted onto two tabs on the back plate that is mounted on the wall. This is very awkward, even for two people. Lastly, why does Whirlpool need a cheesy name plate stuck on the front - hard to clean. Functionally, food is heated very well and controls are easy to use.
Best microwave we've ever bought.

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Steel Microwave Hood Combination:
Called before delivery and delivered on time.

Overall great microwave. I like the sensor function & does a good job of heating it to the correct temp. Though I have noticed that it does take longer than other microwaves for basic things. Like heating chicken nuggets, have to put them in an extra 15 seconds. Or a glass of hot water usually takes 3 minutes till hot instead of the 2 minutes that I was used to. Not a problem just something to get used to. Overall a very good microwave.
Sturdy construction Great user interface

great features. easy to use.
from Buffalo NY
This product takes a lot of the calculating out of usage. Many of the choices give you "sub choices" e.g. when reheating you get choices of "casserole, soup,etc" and so you don't have to try to figure out how long to heat and then have to go back and heat again. The food comes out at the right temp. The fan works well. It looks great in my kitchen. I liked the addition of a silver handle on the black microwave as it matches my stove exactly (black stove with a silver handle) Very satisfied with performance and features. Would purchase a Whirlpool product again.
works great, but after a few uses in a row it cuts out
from Phoenix, Az
Looks great, easy to use/clean. Weve had whirlpool in the past & loved it but this model is very loud & about every 3rd to 4th use doesn't work, when I put food in for 1-2 mins it should come out pretty hot but its as cold as when I 1st put it in. Ive never had a problem with any other microwaves in my life doing this. We had a technician out to check it & he said we were probably getting the cooling down cycle.....didn't seem right to me weve never had that with other brands or models.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
