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 purchased this unit from Sears for a major kitchen renovation. I bought it primarily because it had the venting capability of 400 CFM's. After installing it I was dismayed to find that the venting capability is virtually nonexistent. It was so bad that I thought the fan was improperly installed, so I pulled it off the wall to double check it. Unfortunately, it was installed properly so it appears I am now saddled with an exhaust fan that doesn't suck. If you use the front burners on the range, and you have the fan on as high as it will go, steam from the pots rises straight up and blocks your view of the microwave oven. If you use the right rear burner steam floats up and to the right and goes under the cabinets.There is NO exhausting! None, zip, nada! It is apparently just a very poor design.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
Bought 2 months ago, like all the features but I miss a pause button. If I want to stir or turn the food over I have to hit cancel and put new time in. Am I missing a way to pause without having to cancel?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

love it no regrets
from Palmyra, Virginia
I purchased this microwave in my old home just before I moved and couldn't wait to buy it again for my new home. It's all about the sensor technology; it's the first microwave I've ever used that actually performs the functions it's supposed to. Other microwaves I've used cook meat on the defrost cycle, but this one defrosts perfectly. I love to bake so I really appreciate the different melt/soften selections. Softens cream cheese in seconds rather than leaving it out on the counter. Softens ice cream to scoopable consistency. I love the steam/simmer feature, too. No more boiled-over rice or oatmeal! Steamed vegetables come out just the way I like them-cooked yet still crisp and fresh tasting. Well done, Whirlpool!

Bought this to replace a 14 year old Whirlpool microwave. Installation was a breeze, vent openings were identical to unit being replaced so no customizing needed. Features are great, quiet operation and units looks good!! only minor complaint is beeps when cooking is done are a little too quiet, if you aren't in the kitchen you wont hear it.

have used for about 4 months now. It has nice features and some nifty pre-sets;it senses the food and starts on it's own. what I don't like is that it always burns my popcorn to the point of smoke! still experimenting with that. Also, doesn't have speed controls (ex: tap 1 for 1 minute and it starts) I have to input 100 and tap start, Call me lazy but I personally prefer the speed key method. My fav features are that its super quiet and the tune upon completion; a nice change from the old BEEP BEEP BEEP!

So far so good...
from Salt Lake City, UT
Purchased this microwave about a month ago. So far it's good. I like the Teflon coated interior which makes cleaning easy. What I don't like is that the tray/plate doesn't lie flat with the bottom of the microwave (It's slightly elevated). Other than that, I feel the unit itself was competitively priced for the features associated with it. One more thing to remember when you replace a microwave is to get the exact measurements. This microwave actually sticks out a bit further than my old one.

Operates almost silently! Defrosts fasts. Above stove light is bright. Multiple fan settings are better than my old microwave. Bought a Whirlpool oven with the microwave. Love that as well as my Whirlpool refrigerator.

My wife and I bought this model about six weeks ago and we couldn't be happier. The microwave is spacious and is very quiet. As is the exhaust fan. The controls are extremely easy to use and again very quiet. An excellent item at a fantastic bargain cost.
