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.

I have just one big complaint, I can not turn off the sound it makes when it is finished. I could with the old one also a Whirlpool.
from League City, Texas
This microwave came with our new house. The first one had to be replaced because the door didn't work right - wouldn't open very easy. This particular unit is missing many features on similar models by GE, LG and Samsung such as express cook, adding 30 seconds and being able to cook for 1, 2, 3 etc minutes by just hitting one key. It's what I'd call a "Cheapo"... I guess you get what you pay for.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
RIP after 6 months
from Tellico Village, TN
This unit was installed in our new home and we began utilizing it approx. Jan. 1, 2015. About seven months later it died - simply died! We are a two person retiree household so it surely was not overworked. Whirlpool was excellent in providing a completely new replacement. The only problem was the loss of use of the unit for two weeks - not good. The new micro is functioning just fine so we we hope this will be the case for many years.
Good Basic Microwave

from Sanger Ca
This microwave is a good basic with very deep capacity. Trim kit is way over priced but nessesary for a finished in cabinet look.
from Fairmont, WV
This microwave has been in use for about 1 month and so far it has worked great. It is much more powerful than our old one and very easy to operate.
Very dependable products!
from Vancouver, Washington
I replaced our 11 year old Whirlpool microwave this week. The unit performed extremely well all 11 years. We replaced this unit with another Whirlpool microwave based on our satisfaction with the old one. Very good instructions were included in helping to replace this product as a built in. We are already happy with our new product.
