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.

Comments about Whirlpool Black Microwave Hood Combination:
We put new Kenmore appliances when we built our home 19 years ago...with lots of care and no abuse they lasted 19 years...It's was time to replace them and decided on Whirlpool because of quality and reliability plus the fact that a Whirlpool plant is located 25 miles from where we live..and our desire to support the local economy..I've had Whirlpool washers and dryers and rate them excellent as well... Whirlpool has always been dependable and makes my life easier. Would highly recommend Whirlpool appliances everyone.

I have had this for about three weeks and so far I like it a lot. The microwave is powerful and heats foods more quickly than the microwave it replaced even though they are the same power. It is also much more quiet than the prior microwave. The sensor cook works well when reheating dinner plates, etc. The only thing I think could be improved is if the light that illuminates the range was more toward the center instead of in the back.

I like all the features on this microwave however it does take a little bit of time to heat up the food.
from Florence, NJ
This microwave is slick looking and is packing 1000 watts so it heats up food fast.

wonderful. Can reheat to plates at a time.
from Carriere, MS
This replaces a 5 yr old microwave and it is so much more high end and looks so modern. Love it.
Does what I need from it. The one thing I'm happy about is I don't see an auto timer, e.g. push number 1 and it automatically runs for one minute. Otherwise, looks good and has 1000 watts of power.
