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).

Well considering this is the second unit in 6 months, I'm not sure how to rate this... It works fine, lets just see if it out lives its original.

Quality Worth the Purchase Price

By 

from Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Countertop Microwave:

This model replaced a cheaper model (different brand, half the price of this one) and I wish I'd bought this one to begin with. Well worth the price. The oven is roomy and accommodates even large casseroles. The sensor cooking is accurate and convenient. And it's quiet! I barely hear it running. Although I read the instruction booklet, it was unnecessary because the buttons are clear and easy to use. The only thing that could make this appliance better is if it were manufactured in the USA. Alas, I couldn't find a made-in-USA microwave oven anywhere.

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Countertop Microwave:

I replaced a 500-watt dead microwave, so am still learning how to use this one. My only complaint is that the icons and lettering are too small for me to read without magnifiers

Good product, but loud

By 

from Chicago, IL

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Countertop Microwave:

This is a good microwave but there's nothing spectacular about it. We had a KitchenAid before the Whirlpool (which I believe is a sister brand) but the kitchenaid was much quieter. The door is more difficult to open on this one--although that may just be because it is new and not "worn-in" yet or may have something to do with our trim kit. Anyhow, it is a fine product.

It replaces two others I had of the same thing. You are able to heat and kitchen time at the same time.

Good Buy

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Countertop Microwave:

We bought this model because it fit the cut-out in our cabinet. It has worked fine, and I am glad we tried it out! A minor bother is that both opening and closing the door are loud operations.
