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!

This unit was purchased as part of my kitchen upgrade to new Whirlpool products in stainless-steel. The microwave is installed in-cabinet (using the matching Whirlpool trim-kit). Looks very nice.

This microwave has the standard features that are found on most units today, and so just gets an average rating for features, design, etc. It's no quieter than the unit it replaced (an old 1996 non-Whirlpool unit). Additionally, the turntable is only 13.5" diameter (as opposed to the 16" in the old unit).

This unit is advertised as 1.6 cu.ft. capacity, but it's nowhere near that big. Interior dimensions are only 14.5dx14.5wx9.25h, which is only 1.13 cu. ft. There are small "cutouts" in the interior top, back, and left side which add a little extra space, but that only bumps up the capacity to something less than 1.45 cu. ft. (I expected this unit to have about the same interior space as my old unit, which was indeed 1.6 cu. ft. capacity. The store where I bought the unit didn't have a display model to check out, so I relied on the info on the Whirlpool website.)

Having said all that, it's plenty big enough for any cooking that I've done so far (and probably ever will do).

Good but LOUD

By 

from Chicagi, Illinois

Verified Buyer

Very good. Cooks well and fast!
However...the tone of buttons are loud.
Plus, the beeping at end of cook time is EXTREMELY loud. Can't micro anything late at night without waking the house up.

I bought this a few weeks again and didn't expect much from a small microwave, but it is great. Not only does is look nice but it is nice and large on the inside.

great microwave

By 

from Wenatchee

Verified Buyer

I bought the microwave to replace one that had a short in it. My only reserve for giving it 5 stars is that the button you push to open the microwave door is sticky and hard to open. I have to hold the top of the door to push the button in. Otherwise the 1200 watt is sufficient for our use.

Worked for 2 years

By

This was installed in the model home that we purchased. It lasted a little over two years and now the magnetron is going out. Sounds horrible and loud. It worked great up until now.

My First Impressions of 1.6 cu. ft. countertop microwave

By 

from Citrus Heights, CA

Verified Buyer

We bought this to replace a six year old Electrolux microwave that has been giving us intermittent performance problems. Both microwaves are very similar in size and appearance. I would like to see how the Whirlpool microwave is performing when it has had six years of use.

I would change only one thing - have the beeper be optional so I could turn it off.
