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 microwave is very quiet for an inexpensive counter top. There is a button for power level but h power level can not be adjusted. PL10 is all it does. This unit is 7-8 months old. We purchased this house that was built 7-8 months ago and lived in by aan 89 year old single lady on a very part-time basis. There is alo NO serial number. I sold Whirlpool appliances for years and do know where to look. The number was not rubbed off, it simply was never stamped. What's up? Help?

              Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Countertop Microwave:

              We have only had the product for a few months. Over our last "expensive" microwave this one is notably quieter to run, to the point where we were not sure if it was actually running. Also at 5 am when everyone else in the house is sleeping, I have found the door much easier to close, no need to slam. Outside of a microwave drawer I do not think you can find an easier closing door.

                          I have three microwaves in different parts of the house. Our large Panasonic microwave lasted just two months and the power supply went bad, so we replaced it with a Whirlpool. The box for the Panasonic was marked " Made in China"! I told the clerk that I did not want another Panasonic or one made in China and she said the Whirlpool was a USA product, but when a man was carrying the box containing the microwave to my car I saw "Made in China"! I hope they were not made in the same Chinese factory and that the Whirlpool lasts. I can't really evaluate it because it is less then one month old.

                                We've had this unit for about a year now and although it functions fine, when you close the door the latch is extremely loud. Like its slamming shut! Also when you open the door it springs open very strongly. I'm hoping someone will have seen this same problem and can advise me on how to adjust the latch...

                                      Had for month now. Love the 30 second touch option. Also the frozen meat defrost. Before, meat would start to cook, not this model. Also the frozen vegetable button. Cooks everything just right. Have more to learn but I am sure I will be quite happy with this microwave for a long time. The button to open the door could be bigger as I have had surgery on thumb, and it's a little tough to push, but I manage.

                                            Bought this microwave to replace the Kitchenaid microwave that I had for 15 years. This microwave is more powerful than the one I had. It fit into the space that was built for the old microwave with one exception, the plug on the whirlpool microwave added about 1 1/2 inches to the depth. A flat plug would have made a perfect fit. Also, I don't like the colon between the hour and the minute on the clock blinking constantly.

                                                  My old microwave was 30 years old, and took forever to cook food, which most times dried out the food or burnt the food. The microwave was so heavy that I couldn't pick it up.

                                                  This microwave is light to pick up, and is fast and doesn't dry out the food.

                                                  I am getting used to the push buttons,and enjoying my new microwave.

                                                  Thank you Whirlpool for a great product.

                                                              This microwave has some very nice useful features that we never thought we would think we would need or use, but now we realize we could never get one that didn't have these options. It is nice to put 2 slices of left over pizza in the microwave and hit the pizza button and select 2 and it does everything for you.
