Due to kitchen size we were limited to a smaller microwave. Would like to have had a handle on the door for easier accessibility . Large interior allows bigger dishes. Wish at times turntable could be turned off. Overall ,I'm happy with our purchase.

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.

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave:
this microwave has a nice clean look. It cooks very fast and is large enough for a 13x9 pan. My only negative comment is that the buttons are a little hard to press, the door button is a bit small and the closing of the door could be a bit smoother. Overall tho it is a great microwave. I love whirlpool products
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

One great oven with one small drawback
from near Portland, OR
Purchased this microwave to replace a 30 year old one that was fried by a power surge at our house. That was a blessing in disguise because this oven is so much better. This oven is huge yet still fits in the cabinet space of the old one. You could cook a turkey in there. And it's powerful and fast. I love the one touch 30 second start and the presets for dinner plates, soup, and frozen food defrosting. I love everything about this unit except the exterior gloss finish. It attracts finger prints like auto accidents draw lawyers. It's not hard to clean (the interior is very easy to clean) but finger prints seem to need wiping off after almost every use. I wish Whirlpool would give the exterior a little texturing to help hide finger prints and small smudges.

Doubt I will win anything with that review. But compared t my old Whirlpool Gold microwave, this is a step back!
from Augusta , GA
the microwave is very difficult to open and is loud when closing the door. It is quiet when running, but the beeper at the end is annoying. Mine arrived with a defect on the inner surface of the door....Know my review will reach no one, but I feel better letting you know the disappointment I have with it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
SUPERB NEW MICROWAVE!!!
from Austin, TX
Our new microwave is superb - I love it. It's much more powerful than our previous oven. The design fits beautifully with either black or chrome appliances. The "open" switch is quite stiff, but I suppose it will ease up with repeated use. The inside is designed in such a way that its very easy to clean. I especially like the rotating glass circle. It's much larger than our previous oven and the surface is conducive to being wiped cleaned without the need to remove it.
Very good heating
from Fredericksburg, va
Does a great job with speciality heating and timing
from Houston, TX
I purchased this microwave and trim kit to replace an old microwave and trim kit. The instructions were easy to follow and the unit and trim fit perfectly.
Dependably and quality
from Melrose, Iowa
Got a off brand and lasted only a year and a half... That teaches me to stay with the brands I know and grown to love! Always look to whirlpool first, great quality and performance!
from Bakersfield, CA
This product does everything needed for everyday microwave functions.
Builder selected a great model
The builder for our new house picked this and we have been very happy with it. My only wish is that it had "express start" where you can press 1 for 1 minute, 2 for 2 minutes, etc. like our old one did.
Works very well with two exceptions.
from Oklahoma Ctiy OK
I cook a lot in the microwave and it does a great job. I have noticed however that the popcorn setting does not pop all the kernels as well as my old microwave. I have also notices what appeared to be moisture inside the door. The instructions indicate a "wavy" appearance is normal but I don't know if that is what it is referring to.
