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.

A Great Microwave
from Warren, VT, United States
We're very pleased with this Microwave. It is attractive to look at, and the features are great. The interior is beautiful and cleans up easily. The automatic settings like "Popcorn," and "Melt and Soften" are great! Installation was somewhat time consuming and complex.
ease of use

Works great. Install was easy. Cleaning is easy. Clean look.
Nice! Has great features and sleak look.
I have always wanted a space saving range hood microwave. I am so glad I chose the whirlpool brand. It has all the features I want, and is a high quality product for a great price!
from Goodyear, AZ, United States
Has good preset options. Runs quiter than most microwaves
Excellent programmed features such as the defrost options. Very easy to use and cooks food very we'l
from Seymour, IN, United States
I relieved the microwave as a Christmas gift this past year. Was the best gift ever. Does an excellent job. Would never choose any other appliance over whirlpool. Have very stylish look and easy to use. Very pleases with my product.
Very nice microwave
The only problem I have with it is that the alarms are not loud enough and cannot be increased. Otherwise I am very satisfied.
This microwave works well and has multiple cook options for specific food items which makes using it very easy. The vent fan has multiple settings which helps me not set off the smoke alarm when cooking on the stove.
Does exactly what its suppose to do. Have not used the rack yet.
Sleek look and great product!

Our new Whirlpool microwave is a great addition to our new re-model. The "Black Ice" line has a touch of chrome (handle), but is black like my stove which I did not replace. It works great and has a cheerful little song that signals completion of task. The fan feature is quite powerful and the lights have choices for bright to dim. Very happy with this product so far.
