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.

Quietly Heats up food in seconds!

Comments about Whirlpool Stainless Steel Countertop Microwave:
I bought this microwave and installed it in place of our old 19 year old built-in Whirpool microwave. It was easy to install with the matching available Whirlpool trim kit. I am very pleased, so far, with how quietly it operates and how quickly it heats up leftovers. My wife loves it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had this pre-installed when I purchased new home
from Murphy, Texas
I have just replaced my previous microwave (a Whirlpool) that lasted something like 12 years and survived three large sons constantly microwaving everything that they ate. It just recently died but with that kind of reliability I felt that there was no other way to go but get another Whirlpool. Hopefully, now that they are out of the house, this one will survive for my retirement. I always value products that are well made and reliable.
Staying with Whirlpool
from McKInney, TX
I switched to all Whirlpool appliances and perfectly satisfied with them all. I even upgraded to the largest microwave. Only regret is that I did not go stainless steel instead of black.

I had a whirpool microwave before for well over 10 years and when it finally bit the dust I knew I wanted another whirlpool. This one is bigger and I love all the features that it has. It is harder to open than my last one which is the only thing I don't like about it. But overall I love it!
from Orange County, CA
We bought this with the intention of it replacing an old microwave in a secondary residence. But first we used it while renovating a home so we could have some warm food. Works great and had no problems with it.
from Burnsville, NC
The turntable on this microwave is 16 1/2" across. That means you can heat up lasagna in a 9 " x 13" pan and not have it hit the side of the microwave. It heats very fast so I have to adjust your cooking time on some recipes. Great purchase.
