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).

Whirlpool microware

By 

from Morral, OH

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:

About a month and a half ago we bought our third Whirlpool microwave. We were very happy with our microwaves. They were real workhorses and lasted many years. The only problem we had with them was the door opener/latch. The latches finally refused to open and we had to break them even though the microwave was still good. Two things we do not like about this new microwave is 1) It has the same kind of latch as our previous ones and we are very wary that it will come to the same end as the others. 2) the numbers and settings on the touch pad are much smaller and hard to read.

Very good size for limited counter space

By 

from Conway, AR

Verified Buyer

Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:

Good power and easy to use. It is large enough to accommodate a 9½ x 15 inch casserole dish, yet leave enough counter space in front on a 25 inch wide counter top for a work space.

We've had this for about a month and really like how quiet it is. Also, it cooks and defrosts evenly.

    I love my new Whirlpool microwave. I have a busy schedule and it cooks and heats perfectly. I especially love it as an easy and foolproof way to poach eggs.

    Super quiet and powerful

    By 

    from Perris, CA

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave Oven:

    I purchased this microwave to replace an over the range 900 watt model. The easy programming cooking stages are excellent and very easy to understand. The difference between the 900w and the 1200w is astounding. The unit is small and fits over my 23" range perfectly, yet the inner capacity is much larger than the OTR it replaced.
