I needed a built-in microwave (countertop with custom built-in kit) for a 30-inch wide cabinet space. I also wanted a brand name that was known for reliability such as Whirlpool. Generally, I have a complaint that there is very little selection to chose from for built-ins. I would have paid a litttle more for a microwave with more features such as one-touch 1-min, 2-min, etc. time cooks. I was also a little disappointed with the fit and finish of this special order microwave through Lowes. There was a slightly bent side panel that you can see from the front and the door's top lines are not even/smooth with the panel area. Both of these were obviously factory defects that were not caught with quality checks. Additionally, even following the installation instructions to a tee, still left a noticeble gap (into the cabinet cavity) that is unsightly while the door is open. A better designed kit would have avoided this in my opinion.

Poor Open Button & Latch
This is a nice microwave, but the latch is very sensitive. For some reason, if the microwave is not sitting very flat, the door will not open when you push the latch....Read complete review
This is a nice microwave, but the latch is very sensitive. For some reason, if the microwave is not sitting very flat, the door will not open when you push the latch. Also, when you push the latch, it feels cheap.We've installed this microwave in a cabinet with a trim kit, and the door will not open about 1/2 the time when you push the open button(latch). We have to pull the door while pushing the latch.

I bought it to match my new oven. It was working fine but at 13 years old, I did not want it to go out and then I could find the one to match the new oven. I wish the lights for the clock was the same color as the oven as they are same brand, year and style. I love how big it is and how fast it heats/cooks. I do wish the opening button was larger though. In the end I would still buy it and am happy I did.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
The interior is quite large and holds any size baking pan.
This is the quietest microwave ever!
Looks nice, heats up quickly and easy to use.
Easy to use!!!

My mom bought this for me for my birthday. I have used it for all types of cooking and reheating. It's an awesome product. I wish I had purchased this microwave first.

Powerful and Quiet
By Mike Ro Wave

I got this to replace what is practically the same microwave (I thought) from 1997. This is much better. Even though the old one listed the power at 1.6kW, this new model is evidently more efficient. It cooked bacon in about 75% of them time and it is far more quiet. The display is bluer than older Whirlpool appliances (that were more turquoise) but it is clear and easy to read. I have not used all of the myriad functions yet but I did use the trim kit to install over my oven and it looks great. Installation was very simple.

Oven heats stuff faster than the prior microwave (a 16 year old Whirlpool) and has many more preset options which is nice. Self installed, which was easy. Trim kit fits nicely and all pieces (microwave, Convection oven, and dishwasher, all Whirlpool) look great together.
