This is my second Whirlpool - same model. I love this microwave. My first one lasted me for like 9 or 10 years. I went looking for another microwave and knew I wanted one just like that first one. I must have gone to 6 stores. Finally at HHGregg, there it was...the exact model of my first microwave. At an incredibly reasonable price. I told them to wrap it up.I have had this 2nd Whirlpool microwave for about 2 years. The performance is great. Dependable. Easy controls (my little 3 years old granddaughter can operate it (with me standing near her of course), great menu features, nice alert that the food is done, fits well on my counter and is attractive.I typically do not cook or bake in a microwave. I use it for reheating and heating foods.I would highly recommend this microwave to anyone looking for a great appliance, that is dependable and does a wonderful job of heating and reheating foods.

We needed to replace our prior microwave with one capable of mounting under a cabinet since we have a small kitchen with limited counter space. This narrowed the field to 2 models, the Whirlpool 0.7 Countertop being one (with no user reviews available at the time) and the other, another manufacturer's model with terrible user reviews. I hoped for the best and ordered the Whirlpool. It IS compact though it was much more of a challenge to mount than our previous larger, mountable unit had been.On to performance! Our primary use of a microwave is for heating or defrosting things and, occasionally, to bake potatoes or pop popcorn - very basic stuff. The Whirlpool takes almost a third longer to heat food and liquids than our previous model, groaning the whole time the glass plate turns. The plate is also prone to coming off its rollers if dishes placed on it aren't exactly in the middle. The Defrost feature only works if you know the weight of frozen items (and if they are a pound or more). Otherwise, you have to use 30% cooking power which seems to take almost double the time to defrost than our previous unit had taken. On the plus side, the unit is fairly easy to use (no advanced features!), easy to clean and has a good alert that sounds every few minutes so there's no forgetting something in it.Overall, this is a very BASIC unit which is understandable considering its low cost but I had really hoped it would perform better. Maybe Whirlpool and other microwave manufacturers should consider designing compact high-performance units for those of us with very small kitchens. I would gladly pay 2 or 3 times as much for it!!

This was purchased to use in a school cafeteria for student use. It the perfect size to wheel in and out of storage each day. It was exactly what we were looking for.

Works great - very chic looking
from Traverse City, MI
Owned this for a little over a week. Heats well. Turntable turns much faster than my old microwave which we like. The only thing that I would wish for on this is a 30 sec cook button. It has a 'minute' button, but I miss the 30 sec button that my old one had.
Really good microwave
from South Bend, IN
I bought this microwave and it has exceeded my expectations. It heats better than my old one and the button layout is easier.
from Graham. NC
For the most part, I am very happy with my microwave ovenIt does seem to be a little noisy for such a small appliance, but it cooks well.The only thing I would like to see changed/improved upon, is having the door open a little wider than just a rigid 90 degree angle ! The door can be annoying !!!
Works for me!
from Buffalo, NY
So far so good. Have only had it approximately 1 month. Fits in the space above the stove perfectly!

Oh well, it was free!

It is a very small basic microwave. Takes too long to heat anything. The revolving glass plate comes off and makes a lot of noise. Not enough functions. It's good enough for popcorn.

By Mike the micro

We are undergoing a kitchen remodel and living in the basement. We have a toaster oven, coffee pot, blender and new little micro. Kind of like camping in our own house. It works great and helps a lot! All of my appliances are Whirlpool I just ordered a new refrig, micro and range.

A Bad Surprise
from Binghamton, NY
I bought this microwave in March 2013. It was the most expensive countertop microwave available at the time. I thought that it would last because of the Whirlpool brand. I'm not into wasting free time looking for small appliances every few years especially given how little it was used. It's July 2015 and it stopped working.
