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.

Looks good and clean up is easy.
from Ruidoso, NM
The main reason I use a microwave, as I believe most folks do also, is for heating up items. It is extremely slow even on full power. My previous microwave that was much older was much more powerful. I would not purchase this microwave again due to this.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Wake Forest, Nc
This microwave looks beautiful and performs well. The presets are ok and I wish there were 1 button minutes button. Otherwise I am very happy with the microwave.
We love it and the appearance is stylish
from Lake View NY
Easy to install, love the large capacity. love the look
Good, solid microwave
from Charleston, SC
Researched hard before selecting this microwave. In use, it works well except I'm a little disappointed in the sensor setting accuracy. I've overcooked potatoes and other things using the sensors. Oven also lacks instant keys for 1,2,3 minute starts. Otherwise oven works very well. New interior surface material is very easy to clean.
Easy to use, very attractive, high-quality microwave oven.
from Amherst, New Hampshire
The ease with which the door opened and closed was a huge factor in our choosing this microwave oven. We had been without a microwave for a week and realized just how much we missed having one! We are very happy with all features of this product and particularly with its quality and attractive appearance. We highly recommend it.
Great features and easy to use!
from SHeboygan WI
Very easy to use; the buttons tell you exactly what the microwave will do. Couldn't believe I would be able to operate this unit without an instruction manual, but it's that easy! LOVE the "soften/melt" feature; works perfectly!
Looks great, does the job
I bought this because it perfectly matched my new kitchen. Looks so great (other than the huge whirlpool branding on it which is annoying). Works fine. Takes longer than my old one to heat things but it's a microwave so still pretty quick. I have not used all the features. I like it.
Easy to install, Cooks Evenly , Great features!!!!
Installed in December, installed easily. Tons of features, cooks evenly, so many presets for thawing, reheating , cooking... too many to list. I would highly recommend if you are in search of a new microwave.
Works well, similar to most others
from Fort Wayne, IN
We got this above the range microwave to replace and get a larger size than our previous model. It works well so far and holds 2 smaller bowls easily for reheating food. The only quirks were that if you set something in there much ahead, it makes you open and reclose the door before the start button will work, which was odd, but they must have a reason. (just not sure what) The tune it gives when it shuts off was very annoying to me. It is a "tune" that repeats itself 4 times! I felt like saying "alright, alright, I'm coming!" Luckily it did have an option to disable the alarm, so I chose silence over what it did. That may not bother others, but I was glad I could remove it. Has many auto-sensing features that seem to work fine, as we continue to experiment with the options.
