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:
We bought this Whirlpool microwave to replace our old one that quit working. We like this one better because it has the Silverstone coating on the inside which makes it easier to clean. It has several of the preprogrammed cooking buttons/pads, but we don't really use them very often. Usually, we just pop food in, hit the 30 second cook button/pad for how many seconds or minutes we want the item to cook. One thing I have noticed that I like. Our old microwave oven disrupted the wi-fi signal, and I couldn't use my laptop while the oven was running. I tested the new one, and there has been no disruption to the wi-fi signal, so I can now use my laptop wirelessly while the oven is operating. This new model is also quieter, which is nice. All in all, it was just the right over-the-stove microwave that we needed and works great!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Premium Microwave Oven
from Dayton, Ohio
We are very happy with our decision to replace our aging microwave with this Whirlpool. It fits in well with our other stainless appliances. The color matched interior gives a premium feel not found in other brands in this price range. It is fairly quiet and cooks as expected.

Recently purchased and we love this new addition to our kitchen. Works great, it's simple, and very quite. Cooks our meals great and just as we like them.
New Over the Range Microwave
from St. Lucie, FL, United States
Installs easily, nice modern features and works extremely well. The only problem I've encountered is that it's not as quiet as I'd prefer while it's operating, and the end of cycle signal is not loud enough to hear from the next room.
from Quitman, TX, United States
I bought this microwave a couple of month ago--very pleased with it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Dying after on 20 months
from Raleigh, NC
Purchased this microwave early in 2013. The auto-on fan never really worked that well but otherwise the unit seemed fine. Now the microwave random;y powers down completely - no cooking, control panel, light, or fan. It will restart a few minutes later, but it is completely random as to when it comes and goes. Since the warranty is on 1 year, I'm out of luck. I have bought Whirlpool products before and had good results, but this is a terrible microwave. Never buying another Whirlpool product.
