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:
Based upon one month's use, this is a very good microwave. The first thing I noticed was how quiet it was - I wasn't sure it was even working. The unit does not include much in the way of operating instructions. For the most part, you have to rely on the menus that appear on the display screen on the unit. I would have preferred a booklet - even if only on-line. This unit replaced an older Whirlpool that finally gave up. While the same exterior measurements, the interior and round glass tray are larger. I was surprised that the front mounting screws and power cord were not in the same location as my previous units (Kitchen-Aid and Whirlpool) - so that complicated what was otherwise an easy DIY installation. So far, I am very pleased with this unit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By Hmong Mom

I bought this a month ago. It is very roomy and I can warm up with the top rack and turn table at the same time. It looks beautiful in my kitchen. It matches my black oven range. Only bad thing about this is the fan is loud and if I set it on medium or low setting, the fan noise gets even louder. It is horrible at sucking up the cooking air Into the exhaust fan. Other than that, it looks nice, roomy inside and it cooks fast
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Decatur, AL
I love my new microwave,I can do just about anything in itI love to steam vegetables and it has a special feature just for steaming it is great work well with any healthy diet and cleans so very easy
Quality goes in before name goes on
Very poor quality as my unit is assembled in a twisted state. No quality from China!
Very quiet and easy to clean!
from Charlotte, NC
We purchased this microwave about two months ago, and are very pleased with it. We love the non-stick feature inside the microwave. It makes cleaning much easier and less time consuming. Everything easily wipes off. The various feature buttons are nice, especially the "soften butter" feature and potato button. While I love the microwave, I do wish it had one click buttons for cooking food (such as press one and it will automatically cook for one minute). Please know, this microwave seems to heat food very quickly.

Bought this a few weeks ago to replace a similar model that quit working and we've had no issues
Love my new microwave

I have not problems with my new Microwave. The only thing I would want is a louder sound//noise when microwave time is completed. Glad I chose Whirlpool. (I also have washer and dryer)
