After researching many microwaves I finally decided to buy this one. My Sharp after 14 yrs bit the dust. I needed a special size unit that would fit where my other microwave was. I also needed a 1.6 cu ft with 1200 watts of power. This whirlpool fit perfect and has all the features I needed. Its easy to use, has a great bright blue display light which you don't need your glasses to read. Also the interior light comes on when you open the door which makes it easy to see how your food is and to clean the inside. Its also a very quiet unit when its on. I am so glad Whirlpool had this microwave and the size is perfect, my 3 qt casserole dishes fit with no problem with room to spare. The unit style is very nice to and I was able to get it in the color white which is hard to find these days. I would recommend this unit. I use it everyday several times a day. Thank you Whirlpool for making such a great product., keep up the good work.

Our previous Whirlpool model broke under warranty and they replaced it with this because they weren't selling the old one anymore. First of all it looks cheap, the time display is neon blue and it is so bright you can't read the time- its useless. It opens and closes so loudly, very annoying- no handle to easy it close, so it does'nt have to be clicked shut. When something is done the volume of the dinger is so loud and continues to beep even when you have opened the door and retrieved what you heated/reheated/defrosted.

                Comments about Whirlpool 1.6 cu. ft. Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave:

                This microwave has a number of excellent features, yet is easy to use. Food cooks quickly and evenly. The only drawback, in my opinion, is the protective film that covers the touch pad. We have only owned this microwave for a little over 1.5 months and we are seeing "bubbles" appear on the "start" and "cancel" pads, as well as around the top edge of the pad. This makes me wonder how long the protective film is going to actually last. I'm also a bit hesitant about the push-button release for the door and it's durability. I guess time will tell. I've only used a microfiber cloth to clean the pads, so no harsh chemical cleaners and no water so I don't believe the "bubbles" are caused by anything the consumer has done.

                    This microwave is really powerful with 1200 watts, cooks or warms food at no time. 1.6 cu ft is perfect size, I can easily fit casserole dishes in this oven. It makes no noise at all, I often have to make sure that microwave is running. It fits perfect in 27" cabinet with stainless steel trim kit. It would be nicer if there is a button to stop turntable.

                    Comments about Whirlpool 1.6 cu. ft. Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave:

                    This is the second microwave and it has the same defect as the first one. The touch pad membrane tears. Our last Whirlpool microwave lasted 10 years. Clearly, this condition will only get worse with time. Otherwise, it is a good microwave.

                      The door doesn't open fully wide when used with the trim kit. You can't tell what the time is when using the oven, the oven temp shows on the display and the timer shows in the micro oven window.

                          Very satisfied for the month we have had/used it! The speed that the food is warmed up or cooked is time-saving - almost half the time of the replaced microwave. The simplicity of the functions is great for multi-users of different ages.

                              My old microwave began malfunctioning and I needed a replacement. I noticed that we had a whirlpool microwave at work that we have had for many years and it gets a ton of use and abuse and "keeps on ticking". So, I researched many different brands and decided that the whirlpool seemed to be the best bet for the money. We have had it several months now and I am very pleased with it. It seems more powerful than the last microwave as it takes a little less time to cook or warm up various items. It is simple enough to use and yet, it has all the bells and whistles if you want them. The door latch is a little stiff, but not a major issue and the sound level is about average for microwaves. I would certainly recommend this oven.
