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.

I love this microwave
from Omro, WI
I purchased this Whirlpool microwave about a month ago. I love the buttons that feature sensored heating. For instance pressing the dinner plate button will give you a perfectly warmed plate whether it is a small or large plate.

We purchased this unit two months ago and it has been working great.
Simple mid line microwave
from San Jose, CA, United States
I bought it recently to replace a whirlpool velos microwave. The velos was poor design and had to be repaired several times until we gave up. Another thing with whirlpool was its customer service; lets just say hopefully it will be better next time if we need it for the new microwave. Regarding this new microwave, the good thing is that it is lighter and easier to mount. It also operates with less noise. Looks nice with more glass and less metal in front. We had poor experience with the door based touch controls and on this one, we like the side mounted ones. ( the door based controls on velos have poor reputation - check elsewhere for details) On the flip side, the buzzer volume is low; cooktop light place is in rear and would be better if it was towards the front (like velos). The aluminium mess filter seems inadequate. The carbon mess filter could have been placed next to aluminium mesh filter for added protection from oily buildup inside the oven. The magnetron arranty is only one year compared to maytag models that come with 5 years. We bought lowes 5 year extended plan for some piece of mind. Overall a satisfactory purcahse so far.
