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:
It's difficult to really describe the good attributes of microwaves since most of them are pretty standard with respect to capabilities & options. But what I have noticed about this particular model is that everyone who has visited never has to ask how to use it. It sounds silly, but there are some microwaves that you either set the time or have to use the "quick option" (pressing 5 starts it for 5 minutes vs. putting 5s on the cook time), or they can't figure out how to use the timer option without resetting the clock, or vice versa, etc... My 3 year old nephew could figure out how to use this unit if only he were two feet taller and could reach it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It is very easy to use

I have had it for three months and like it more everyday
from Stillwater, OK, United States
Overall I have been very happy with this microwave. It doesn't have quite as many features as the one I replaced but it does a very nice job. It seems like it has a lot of power, cooks things very quickly!
Failed to meet basic standards
Bought this microwave and within a week the door latch had broken. Unable to be repaired according to Whirlpool, we waited almost a month for a replacement. Whirlpool's warranty service time and reporting wait time is unacceptable.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Where are the one touch buttons?
from Kansas City, MO, United States
I am used to touching the 1 for one minute the 2 for 2 min the 3 for 3 min and so on. This microwave is a little different. But you can program favorites. And you just press it once and mash start for 1 minute or press it twice and mash start. But I'm sure I'll get used to it. Heats great!
Just what we wanted.
from Conway, SC, United States
Picked it for features AND because it matched our new oven. We have been very happy with it.
Ample Room for large dishes
from Pierson, IA, United States
No complains from me about this appliance. It offers plenty of room for a counter top microwave and it cooks fast with it's 1200 watts of power. Probably wouldn't need all the beeps when the cooking is done.
from cary, nc
I'm certain there are better microwaves (with more bells and whistles), but I just needed the basics (no convection), as I have double ovens with a convection. The value and look and function of this microwave is fantastic!
from Austin, TX, United States
this is an excellent product, great size and cooking quality. at 1200 watts it cooks and warms items to perfection....highly recommend this microwave
Great Microwave with one small irritant
We bought this a couple of months ago and are very happy with the capacity and power. We haven't tried some of the settings yet, but will get around to it. The one irritant is the continuing 5 beeps about every minute if you don't open the door or hit cancel right away.
