A Whirlpool microwave oven offers you a fast and easy way to cook, reheat, or thaw delicious, nutritious food for you and your family. To help you choose a type of Whirlpool microwave, consider where it will be placed in your kitchen. Choose a Whirlpool countertop microwave, which is available in many sizes, if you have room on your counter. Or opt for a Whirlpool over the range microwave that matches your other Whirlpool appliances to marry a conventional cooking Whirlpool range with a quicker-cooking microwave. A Whirlpool built-in microwave unit is often combined with a Whirlpool wall oven for a sleek, custom look in your kitchen.
Identify specific features you deem important. For instance, sensor cooking adjusts cooking time automatically so your food gets cooked completely without supervision. Steam cooking lets you prepare foods like rice, vegetables and fish in the microwave, freeing your oven to cook a main dish. A Whirlpool convection microwave combines the power of convection hot air cooking with microwave energy to brown the surface of food while cooking faster and more evenly.
Whirlpool Over-the-Range Microwave Oven
If you want to leave your countertops open for food prep, consider a Whirlpool over the range microwave. Most models feature a light on the bottom to illuminate the range below, along with a ventilation option that can replace a traditional oven hood for removing smoke, steam and cooking odors. You can select a Whirlpool over-the-range microwave with 1.6 interior cubic feet of space, which is generally large enough for a 15-inch casserole, or a larger model, with up to 2.1 cubic feet of space.
You may want to opt for professional over-the-range microwave installation if you are uncomfortable wall-mounting or venting your microwave on your own. Best Buy offers professional installation for appliances, including shipping, plus haul-away and recycling of your old appliance.
Whirlpool Countertop Microwave Oven
Choose a Whirlpool countertop microwave if you want to avoid installation. Their compact sizing make them ideal for use in smaller kitchens or dorm rooms, alongside other essential small kitchen appliances like a pressure cooker or a stand mixer. Even though the interior size of a countertop microwave can be similar to over-the-range models, you have the added flexibility of locating it in an accessible place and at a comfortable height.
