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.

Quiet as a mouse!
from Utah, United States
I bought this 1 month ago and I really like it so far! It is super quiet! It is easy to use and functions great. The only thing I am having trouble with is the popcorn button. I have burned countless bags of popcorn!
Like it a lot.
from California, United States
I'm happy with the microwave. It is quiet and does everything a micowave should, plus it is attractive.
Much noisier than the Whirlpool Microwave Oven it replaced.

The exhaust fan makes a loud annoying hum on all speeds except high and the turntable makes clicking noises about every 2nd revolution.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Beautiful design - doesn't impede view of stove
from Clovis, CA, United States
We are thrilled with this product - it is quiet, reliable and the stainless steel finish is beautiful. We had absolutely no problems with it.
I now have a microwave that is working as it should. I received an exchange of the same microwave because my other one(less thank year old) began making sparking sounds. This microwave is a dream.
Love How Easy It Is To Clean
We really like the microwave! The interior is really easy to clean and when it runs it is so quite. Only thing we wish it has was quick one touch cooking, otherwise it is great!
Real quiet and heats great

Bought this about 2 months age and can't believe how quiet it is. Reheating is perfect.
Options, space and style
from Southern NH
This item is awesome. It fits perfectly in our kitchen with style and elegance. The lighting inside is perfect to display everything inside this HUGE space. we love the exterior water/ice dispenser and the ease of water filter access.
