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.

It's so quiet!
from Hopkinsville, KY, United States
Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
We love how quiet this microwave is. It's so quiet we can talk on the phone while standing right next to it. The power is great too. Everything cooks faster. And, cleanup is faster thanks to the non-stick interior. This is a great choice for a microwave!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The design and functionality of this microwave are eligant and powerful. I enjoy the simplicity of using the appliance and love how quiet it works. I would only like to be able to either enter the cook or hit a quick button to quickly set the cook time.

I bought this a little over a month and so far it's great!

I needed to replace an old Bosch 2.0CF 1000W microwave and looked at several brands and models before deciding on this Whirlpool 2.0 cu. ft. Over the Range Microwave with CleanRelease Non-Stick Interior. It has a TON of space in it, is phenomenally quiet and does a great job of cooking and reheating food. The sensor cooking is a great feature and this past weekend, I thawed frozen meat in it. It did a wonderful job of thawing the meat without cooking it and making it hardened and charred. Plus I think the design is very user friendly - much better than the Samsung or LG comparable microwaves. I'm very happy with my purchase!

I like this, because is very easy to use and practic.
from Olathe Kansas, United States
We purchased this microwave to replace a similar Whirlpool model. The upgrades to the product in the past five years make owning this one a better experience. The door closing/latching mechanism is smooth, the interior cleaning is effortless, and the end of cycle notification is very pleasing, not annoying. Control panel also has a better feel. Power level is adequate for all cooking/heating tasks.

Operates very quietly. Door also opens easily and quietly. Inside is a nice stainless color and easy to clean. Has a nice appearance. Many practical features. Also steams food.

Has a lot of room, very quiet and easy to use. The second rack comes in handy.
Easy clean interior
from Hallandale Beach, FL, United States
The best feature is that the tone of the timer does not disturb anyone, yet you can hear the timer go off in the next room. The interior is really easy to clean. When you close the door it has a quiet close feature which is really nice.
from Cygnet, OH, United States
We have had this microwave for about 2 months and really like the features and they do what they are supposed to do. It also is very nice looking.
