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.

from Emmett, Idaho
Replaced older whirlpool microwave. This is the best yet at the price. f replacing old unit, you will need to install new mounting bracket. The old bracket does not work. We would use the same unit in our other home if we need to replace in the future.
Love the features
from Amelia Court House, VA, United States
We bought this to replace a old microwave left behind by the previous owner. We had already bought the new, stylish black ice Whirlpool refrigerator which is beautiful!
Love This Microwave!
By Tobi 77
from Champaign, IL, United States
I bought this microwave 3 months ago after my old microwave quit and I love it. I think that it cooks food more evenly than my old microwave which was also a whirlpool. I love the sensor option, which at first I thought I did not need. The sensor option ensures that no food is overcooked. The reason I wanted another whirlpool microwave was that the old one lasted 10 years and I really liked the way it operated. The controls are centrally located and easy to use. I would recommend this microwave to others.
Very nice upgrade
from Cumming, GA, United States
After replacing our Double Oven with a new Whirlpool Gold model there was no choice, but to update our microwave also. It's bigger, non-stick and looks great!
from Monroe, OH, United States
The microwave is durable and has all the features we need. The design is simple and easy to use. It's also easy to maintain with its non-stick interior.
from Rockford, IL, United States
Kitchen remodeling finally done. I love this microwave, easy to use. Has many features that make it simple to use. I am sure I have not discovered yet all it can do. First time having one over the stove, it is so handy to have there. And it is made in America.
