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.

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave:
This microwave is a good basic with very deep capacity. Trim kit is way over priced but nessesary for a finished in cabinet look.

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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Very dependable products!

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.

My microwave works very hard - I have worn out two in 15 years. This new one is 1200 watts and sturdy and fast - i LOVE IT! At 76 years old, I need all the help I can get and I know I chose wisely when I selected the Whirlpool product. I looks efficient and performs well. So I am a happy consumer - not a usual occurrence these days!

I bought this about 2 months ago and have had great results. It fits in my kitchen island perfectly. Being in my kitchen island I love that it doesn't have a handle so I am not hitting it with my knee. Great design and great purchase for me.
Great product and value !
from Simpson, Illinois
I purchased this Microwave about a month ago. Very pleased with this product ! I'm totally thrilled with this microwave, very quiet, fast, and I couldn't believe the price being so reasonable. I will recommend anyone looking for a new microwave to purchase a Whirlpool.
The increased capacity and speed of cooking are super in this microwave.
