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.

from Burlington, IA
Bought this unit 2 weeks ago after previous unit (another brand) failed at 18 months. This unit has much more versatility and options for cooking than any other brand considered. Has shown itself to be a great choice with easy use instructions.
from Austin, TX
I am very happy with this unit. The door release button on ours was going faulty, and the unit did make a louder than what would seem normal "hum." After 10 months, we called and talked to warranty repair about the concerns. The unit was replaced within a matter of days with an identical unit, and none of the same concerns are there. Thank you Whirlpool.
Great countertop microwave
from Waldo, Oh
I bought it and have used it and love it.
from Inez, Ky
We have had our microwave installed for a couple of weeks, no problems noted, love the huge size! Any container will fit easily, and the power is great. Before I would get burnt popcorn in my old smaller microwave, but no burnt popcorn anymore. Love it!

Great product... Very quiet. You will be a mazed
Complete Microwave Failure
By No More Popcorn.
from OAK LAWN, IL
We purchased the microwave with a host of other Whirlpool Appliances for a total kitchen rehab, but the microwave has stopped working after less than one year of very light use. The circuit breaker has been reset, microwave unplugged and re-plugged, and types of magical waving of the hands, but still no luck. The only recommendation from the user guide is to call an electrician...WOW, thanks.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
from Farmersville, Tx
We have a new home and got this in our home. It is very nice looking and so easy to use. It does a great job.
HEATS VERY FAST
from Raleigh, NC
Love capacity, used mainly for reheating. I would like a door handle instead of push button. Question why a BUBBLE FORMED ON START BUTTON. lOOKS LIKE "FILM" LIFTED.
from New Orleans
Overall the microwave performs well but there are several features that I don't like. - No keep warm button- No quick minute.- The blue display light is difficult to see/read- The add 39 second feature doesn't work at the end of a cycle without opening the door first- The power level function is illogical. Pressing 1 doesn't put it at 10% (as expected) but at 100%. Why would you use the power level function at all if you want 100%?- The constant beeping when it's finished is annoying and unnecessary. - Doesn't include the feature allowing you to turn off the sound.
