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.

Very large and quiet unit.
By Holly the Yogi

Comments about Whirlpool Black Countertop Microwave:
This microwave is the largest we have ever used. It will hold my largest microwavable dishes. It is also quieter than my previous built-in smaller units.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By Smart Shopper
from Oklahoma City, OK
Checked most of the various microwaves. None seemed better on specs. Had previous Whirlpool that was still running after 15 years. Never a problem with it, so stayed with brand.
Love this Microwave
from Hot Springs, AR
It performs so much better than the previous Microwave we had (GE Advantium Microwave). Was a big disappointment.
So quiet I didn't know if it was running
from Monroe Mi
First one shipped damaged, got it home and was so disappointed. Glad I reordered. Love the new one.
from Saratoga Springs, Utah
This is basically a throw away product. Inconsistent cooking.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Costa Mesa
Very quiet and spacious. Could use different control panel choices. Should have a door handle instead of push-to-close.
out side size
from Catlettsburg ,Ky.
I bought this oven because it was the only one I could find that fit in the place that my old built in oven was.
satisfied with this microwave
from OKC, OK
Microwave works as it should. Extra space from previous microwave is nice. Easy to use and controls are clear and legible. Much quieter than previous microwave.
Different digital display colors on microwave and oven
from Crofton, MD 21114
We bought a separate (not combo) microwave from you as well as an oven. Only after installation and power on did we discover that the two digital displays show up as different colors. Buying from one company, Whirlpool, we thought they were at least look like that came from the same company. Not happy with that.
A bit difficult to use
from Sarasota Florida
Veggies taste either too hard or too soft
