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.

Microwave is performing well overall. Controls are easy to use even with LOTS of options. Interior is, so far, really non-stick and easy to clean. Exhaust fan exhibits some notable air flow noise, but has a better draw than my previous experience with similar units. Now the other half of the story... Upon installation found bracket that supports rear of unit was barely sufficient; one end of bracket bent under the load during installation. Rather than trust a questionable bracket, I swapped it with the remounted Maytag bracket (also a Whirlpool product) that it was supposed to be replacing. Upon turning on the surface range light, it blew almost instantly - disappointing but OK, minor. When I went to replace the bulb discovered that during assembly, someone had stabilized the light bracket with a large glob of silicone caulk (see photo) that also caulked in the bulb (likely damaging it as well). Caulk was carefully removed with a razor knife, bulb replaced, and all are now working well. Could only recommend this product line with reservations given anomalies observed and overcome during installation. Whirlpool reputation could benefit from some better Quality Assurance during design and assembly... Not everyone is willing to improvise as such on a new purchase.

Cooks, Reheats wonderfully!
Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
I bought this appliance 2 months ago and I just love it. I have never owned a Whirlpool micro but I have to say it is the best I have ever owned. I just love how it senses the food and how hot it needs to be. No more reheats with cold food on one side and hot on the other, it just knows how to heat the entire plate evenly.If you never had one, try it, you won't regret it. Also love the no stick interior.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love how quiet it is!
from Milford, MI
I love this with one exception. I am used to pushing 1,2, 3...for minutes to cook. My old microwave, I could push 1 and it automatically cooked one minute. Now, I have to push 1 0 0 for one minute. I am sure I will get used to it, but I miss that feature. I love how when I am cooking on the stove top and it gets to hot that microwave senses that and the vent fan automatically turns on! That is great!
does it's job well
this microwave came with my new home. My last microwave seemed to heat very poorly but this one does so fully and evenly.
Great looking and easy to install
