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.

Was totally amazed to get a live person on a Sunday afternoon. Nick from ABT was great with handling my order. My new microwave came promptly, in perfect condition and is working great. This microwave itself is exactly what I was looking for.

    Comments about Whirlpool White Countertop Microwave Oven:

    My wife has trouble reading the buttons. I don't. I bought Whirlpool because my other Whirlpool products have all lasted a long time.Everything I've read say a high percentage of the new microwaves fail within the first three years. We've only had this one a few months. If it is still trouble free three years from today I'll change my rating to 5 stars and start recommending it to friends. Till then I'm just waiting with fingers crossed.

        Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Countertop Microwave:

        This is the second one of these exact units we've owned. First one lasted seven years - that's about all one can reasonably expect. We bought this because it is the largest and most powerful model that fits in an existing build in location we have. Oven is very powerful - sometimes a little too powerful - but that beats the alternative. If you closely compare specs you will find this Whirlpool is nearly identitical to a comparable Kitchenaid model indicating they are both likely manufactured by the same manufacturer and just brand named (and priced) differently at the end. Get the Kitchenaid trim kit instead of the Whirlpool one. They both fit the microwave but the Whirlpool kit had a lot of complaints about it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Abt was great to deal with. Ordering was efficient and microwave came quickly. However one expects that. The rubber really meets the road with Internet retailers when there is a problem they need to handle. In this case the unit came and was damaged in transit. I called Abt and they immediately shipped a new unit and arranged for pickup and return of the damaged one. The new unit came undamaged in 2 business days. I appreciated that Abt didn't waste time waiting for the first unit to come back to their warehouse before sending the second one.

          Comments about Whirlpool White Countertop Microwave Oven:

          Our family uses this microwave primarily to heat up coffee, milk, leftovers, defrosting, things like that. I don't cook with it so this is perfect for our needs. Simple styling ( not cheap looking and I don't think it's going to break down anytime soon with normal use). There's a 30 sec button on it and that is long enough to warm up a 12 oz. cup of coffee without having to put back in. At this time I can't find anything wrong with it and would recommend it to anyone who wants a good microwave for a fair price.

                            This microwave has many features that I have come to expect in an oven and more. The popcorn feature really works well, totally poped the first time. The weight defrost works well, not just almost defrosted as I have come to expect in other microwaves.
