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 Black Microwave Hood Combination:
Bought this microwave along with the matching stove. Overall, works great. Large capacity and heats evenly. The "finished" sound/tone is a little annoying, but that is the only issue I have which is awesome
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Whirlpool 2 CF Microwave
from Clovis, CA, United States
Everything works great. Only complaint is that the autosensor features for defrosting, softening butter, etc. doesn't really work. But I never really expected them to.
Great replacement appliance.
from Mountainburg, AR, United States
I bought this appliance as a replacement for another brand that I had been very happy with. With the easy clean interior and the sensor cooking programs this oven is a much better value and is a superior product with superior features.

Great product. Needs better packaging, mine was damaged. Please inspect before taking home or when picking up product.
Great Mic Butt!
from Fayetteville, NC, United States
I love this product but it cooked my food when i wanted to defrost food that was really hard frozen the food began to cook on the edges, and the music that it makes at the end needs to be a louder once the food is finished, and last but not lest is that the panel on the out side need to to have some type of light on it so you do have to turn the big light on in the room to see.

So far we like the unit. Running the microwave is quiet and offers multiple settings. We are clean and have not needed to use the "easy clean". Areas that need improvement from our perspective: 1. The fan is not very effective for controlling steam unless you only use the burners at the back of the stove. 2. It would be great to have a few of the touch keys backlit so when you want to put the nightlight on you can actually see what you are doing without having to put on the kitchen overhead light.
Over the stove microwave
By do not have nick name
from Elkton, MD, United States
I installed about one month ago. So far, very happy with it. Microwave very quiet and nice looking unit. Seems to be well made and has all the features anybody would need.
A great buy. Extremely quiet. Very powerful. Only improvement would be backlit buttons for operation when the kitchen is dark (nuking coffee in the early morning?).
from Oxford Charter Township, MI, United States
Great over the range microwave. Very quiet and great performance.
