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.

This was purchased online to replace an 11 y.o. Maytag that was built in by our contractor. We chose it from the online selection because the dimensions matched our original ones and we hoped to avoid buying a new "build in kit". It has all the features we wanted, but it had to be ordered without a "hands on" preview. The problem is the door latch--it fits flush with the flat front. To open the door requires a forceful finger push, and the latch is inset into a small and sharp-edged recess. I scrape my finger every time on the edge of this recess when pushing the latch button. I've resorted to using a wooden spoon handle to push the latch button. The door is loud when closing and sounds a bit cheap and flimsy, a rattle ing clatter rather than the quieter thump I would have expected.. It feels like they might have been looking to cut costs by choosing the cheapest possible latch. A very poor decision which spoils the user experience--every time

It is fine

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave:
I really wanted the Whirlpool Gold Version to match my other appliances, but Whirlpool is not making one at the moment. I like that the size is a little larger than my previous one. It does need 2 improvements: 1. the button to open the door needs to be easier to push in the button. 2. It would be nice if the numbers and start button lit up so that I can more easily read them at night without the kitchen light on.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Whirlpool 2.2 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave
from Bremond, TX, United States
I was looking for a Whirlpool microwave to replace my older non Whirlpool that would fit where the other one was. I love my new microwave, it works great. Everything cooks in 1/3 the time. I love my new microwave. Whirlpool is dependable and works great.
Cooks fast and evenly throughout.
from Bossier Parish, LA, United States
I'm very pleased with the ease of use and many options on this microwave as well as the speed of cooking.
from Redding, CA, United States
Purchased the 2.2 cu microwave. One of the things that I don't like is that when you select a setting, you still have to push the "start" button. Our previous model automatically started when your selection was made. Like the size.
Finally!! Value and quality at a GREAT price
from Austin, TX, United States
We did our research and all road led us back to Whirlpool. Easy install and all the featued we wanted. Couldn't be happier.
Great features and size
from Virginia, United States
We bought this a month ago and have been loving it! It's HUGE, so any size dish that needs to be warmed up fits inside. I really like the quick cook feature with the press of one button too.
from Trenton, NJ, United States
This microwave gets used in an office. Constant use, by multiple people. The unit is extremely quiet and efficient.
Good. But have 2 suggestions for mfg.
About Me Casual Cook
I purchased this to replace my Whirlpool Gold microwave because I'm changing my appliances from white to stainless steel. The Gold version is not available anymore. Good so far, I just have 2 suggestions for improvement: 1 Make the open button so that you don't have to push so hard. The Gold version works better. 2. Have the start button light up so that it is easier to see at night when the lights are off.
Love having a double oven!
from Carrollton, TX, United States
My husband and I love to cook and bake. We were always battling over finding enough room to share our old oven. Now with our new double oven, we are looking for even more reasons to bake. Unlike our old oven, this one heats evenly, heats to temperature quickly, the vent is nice and quiet and it has good lighting so you can see what's what. If you're looking for a good double oven, you can't go wrong with this selection!
Just the size we needed.
from Mt. Hood, OR
This microwave oven was purchased to replace one (not a Whirlpool ) that had served us well for 15 years. The primary reason we chose this one was because it is the EXACT size of our old one. That was necessary because it is built in to a wall cabinet above our built-in oven. One feature we are not pleased with is the very light printing on the touch panel. It is rather hard to see. In the store, we had seen the Stainless Steel model which has a dark black touch panel with white print that is very easy to see. I would suggest making the print on the White Model's touch panel much darker so that it could be easier to see !
