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.

I bought this as a replacement for another whirlpool microwave. I've been happy with it so far. The controls are easy to use and remember. It's huge inside and it seems much more powerful that the previous one so it cooks more evenly and faster.
Great Value for the price
love our new Whirlpool microwave..

We just love our new Whirlpool microwave and it's so easy to operate... the reason we chose Whirlpool is the one that the new microwave replaced was a Whirlpool and it had lasted for only about 24 years...Maybe not so good for Whirlpool as a manufacturer but awesome for us as a consumer.....

This Whirlpool unit replaced a Kitchen Aid Microwave, which was a big disappointment. The Kitchen Aid was much more expensive and had a much more complicated key pad. After only 13 months a computer part broke, then only 6 months later, the magnetron broke. I bought the Whirlpool because I decided that I just needed a microwave that functioned and was reasonably priced. So far, so good. I find it easier to use, and it actually heats food faster. When it comes to microwaves, price is not an indicator of value.

Purchased this with a suite package deal. Only had the microwave for a couple weeks, but so far it is awesome. I love the soften/melt butter button.
Cooks, Reheats wonderfully!
I bought this appliance 2 months ago and I just love it. I have never owned a Whirlpool micro but I have to say it is the best I have ever owned. I just love how it senses the food and how hot it needs to be. No more reheats with cold food on one side and hot on the other, it just knows how to heat the entire plate evenly.If you never had one, try it, you won't regret it. Also love the no stick interior.
