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 Stainless Steel Microwave Hood Combination:
I bought this a month or so ago to replace the microwave that was put in when the house was built about 15 yrs ago. Is simple to use, set-up, clean. I like the carousel feature, our old one did not have that, should help make the cooking / reheating more even. Was very easy to install, you can route the blower for any situation you have. I would like to see the timer beeper be adjustable re: sound level and maybe a choice of the little tune it plays with a simple tone. The only thing I can't comment on is how long it will last, time will tell.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Still haven't had a chance to use all the features, but so far I love it. Quiet fan with multiple speeds. Reheat feature is nice. I really do love the style. The brushed metal handle breaks up the plain white. Saving up for the matching fridge!
Works Great and VERY Quiet!
from Hamilton, OH, United States
We bought the microwave a little over a month ago and it has been working very well. It's a wonderful size and very very quiet. It was also easy to install. Even though it's not smudge proof, it doesn't get a whole lot of smudges on it. I believe I've only wiped it down once since we've purchased it and we havea daughter (14) and two boys (10 and 8) who have their hands all over it all of the time! I wish this model had the non-stick gray interior. Other than that, great microwave and looks really good. (:

Really like it. Nothing fancy but works for our needs.
Great design, awesome features!
We bought this when we moved and I didn't realize how much I would love it. We had a Whirlpool over the range microwave before, and I loved it. Almost all of our appliances throughout the entire house are Whirlpool. The only ones that aren't are what was given to us. We love the features, all of the cooking options make it so much easier, and the new and improved design on the inside makes for effortless cleaning. I love Whirlpool and have had this brand since I was growing up. It is a family brand and it proves itself time and again. Thanks!
Great safety features
The fan on ours kicked on by itself this week. I was cooking a pot of noodles and the heat from the pot kicked on the fan to keep the stove area cooler! Smarter than the cook!

I can always count on Whirlpool products. I have been using Whirlpool since I can remember. This microwave is awesome. So many nice features. Love it!
Sleek and sophisticated
from Elk Grove, CA
What a wonderful machine! I haven't used all of its many features yet, but have been highly impressed thus far with the power level choices, timer and overall cooking features. The fan is truly powerful, far better than the wimpy version on my previous microwave that died suddenly. The interior is unlike any other microwave I've ever owned and is a breeze to clean. High recommended.

I bought my microwave a couple months ago and it is perfect. The heat setting work perfect. I made the right choice.
