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.

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave:
Hi,We got this microwave through builder (American Legend Homes).Around 18months back, stopped working because of Magnetron failure.Parts are not available for this model. So there is no other option than replacing it with new one.So don't waste your money on this model.The worst part is builder wont cover the issue.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good for the money
By Texas Rose

This is a quality appliance. i do wish it had an actual pull handle instead of the push latch. All in all we are very pleased with our purchase and intend to purchase all whirlpool appliances for our new home as soon as it is built.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this microwave less than three months ago and the plastic over the numbers is already cracking.
from Columbia, MO
We purchased this microwave because of features and size and ability to be madebuilt-in in a cabinet.Our cabinet has not arrived yet, but since our old microwave was no longer working, we have been using this microwave on the counter for a few weeks and are very happy with the ease of use and even cooking. Pleasantly surprised with the depth compared with our other microwave.

A very nice an big Microwave. I look and runs great.
from Bradner, OH
Have been happy with this purchase due to the larger capacity. Easy to use. Cost was reasonable for the size.
I bought this microwave b/c my Oster microwave just was not performing/operating in a favorable way. All of my appliances within my kitchen other than the microwave, were Whirlpool, so I checked out this microwave online and am so happy that I made the purchase. The cooking time has decreased, it has a larger capacity. It is just a GREAT microwave. I have had several microwaves in my life; however, this one far outweighs every aspect of any other microwave I have owned.
