When my old unit went out it was an oven/micro combo. I decided to replace the oven and microwave as separate units. I love the microwave! It is so quiet! The efficiency of the unit is wonderful. I have had to reivise all of my previous microwaving habits. Popcorn doesn't burn, the soup button is awesome, the beverage button has eliminated my boiling over my drink and I could go on and on. But the defrost features are such time savers and make me look so prepared! It defrosts with out me cooking it! the turntable insures even defrosting. If the working of the microwave wasn't enough, the look of the unit is wonderful. It looks beautiful. I live in the desert so heating up my kitchen with an oven isn't always a smart idea. With my new microwave, I cook wonderful meals without breaking a sweat!

We haven't had this microwave long, but so far it has been dependable. This will be our 4th microwave from Sears in eleven years...not a very good record. Since the built-in microwave dimensions keep changing, not only do we have to buy a new microwave, we have to buy a new kit to go around it too. That is disgusting and very frustrating!!! This microwave is small inside and the kit takes up a lot of space...too little microwave and too much kit!!! It is quite, but when the food is ready it beeps too many times. One time is enough for me. Since the glass on the door is dark, it is really hard to see food cooking inside this microwave. The control panel is hard to see (letters too small) and we don't need the 30 second extra feature on the control panel. I would much rather have a door handle to open the door. So far it works O.K., but I really don't like it. Too much money for what I got!!!

        Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Countertop Microwave:

        This was part of our appliance selections for our new house and is installed in an oven tower cabinet over the wall oven. I was surprised that is appeared rather small being right over the wall oven, and surprised again at how quickly it heats everything we place inside. Very nice features which we will never use half of, but nice none the less.
        We have enjoyed using it in our new home.

                    We just purchased this a week ago and after a week of normal use (which is pretty heavy) we are very pleased. Different foods are all cooking quickly and evenly. Plenty of convenient features...very similar to a more expensive Sharp we had before this one. Price was right and we spent a little extra ($40) on a 5 year warranty to make sure it is worry free for at least that long. Size is a touch bigger than our last one which was always big enough, but it still fits on our rolling microwave cabinet.

                          Have been using it for over a month. Absolutely a great microwave. Easy set up and programming. Physical size is slightly smaller that the old one but cu ft is the same. No regrets on this purchase.

                                I bought Whirlpool® 1.6 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave with 1,200 Watts Cooking Power by Whirlpool
                                a month ago and it has worked well so far.
                                Our last whirlpool microwave lasted 30 years.
                                Will this one too? We shall see.
                                It should outlast me.

                                      I purchased this item and it died on us before a year had expired. We received a new one. It only made it for a few months, so this is our third unit. I remember having microwaves that lasted into the teens of years. Things have really gone down hill. Hope this one lasts at least for a year nowl

                                                  I purchased this from my builder as part of an appliance package. Great buy for sure. Easy to use and does a great job.

                                                        We cannot believe how quiet this microwave is!

                                                        Heats very evenly & quickly.
