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.

We bought this microwave as a replacement for our old Whirlpool microwave. The old microwave had same capacity. It lasted us for 19 years. The new microwave looks okay, and is more powerful. However, the knob/button which you push to open the door is very hard. Its feel is very bad. The knob of the old microwave was far smoother to operate. Similarly, the feel of the touch control panel of the new microwave is also very bad, i.e. when you press a key it takes a while to register, and sometimes you have to push the keys hard. Lastly, the clock on the new microwave was losing about 4 to 5 minutes per day; so we had to replace it under the warranty. Overall the quality of the new microwave is far worse than the old 19 year old microwave by the same manufacturer.

Great Replacement for 11 year old Maytag Built in
By Vegas Grandpa
from Las Vegas, NV, United States
I bought last month and it fit perfectly in the built in space for a 11 year old maytag microwave. Looks good. Works great.
It works very well. I am disappointed that the readout is neon blue. The oven I bought to go under the microwave has the old blue readout. They are built into the wall. It does not look good in my kitchen and I am not happy with two shades of blue. I am unhappy about that.
Quick easy and success
