    A Awaited Low Profile Microwave For Small Kitchen

    Posted
    DPFAST

    I've been waiting for this low profile Over the range microwave for a few years already. They used to make these more often but then every company went the bigger is better way and I was stock with an Whirlpool unit that hung only 15 inches above the stove. Not a good thing if you wanna keep your microwave free from grease and have proper venting while cooking. This 7011 unit is great, low profile that now sits whole 20 inches above the stove. Planty room to pull in the cooking steams and remain clean from oil and grease. The install was a little tricky for me as the cabinet mounting holes required a minimum 12 inches distance away from the back wall but my old cabinets are only 12 inches away so the drilled holes ended up being right next to the end rim of the cabinet and prevented me from easily using the provided washers. I ended up cutting into the cabinet rim to be able to slide the washer into it and aligning the whole with the mounting bolt. In the end its a very strong hold. Another problem with the install was that the none of the wall mounting holes aligned with the studs in the wall and I didnt wanna use the ankers if I didn't have to so I decided not to use any of the pre-drilled mounting holes and drilled 4 holes through the metal mounting bracket directly into the studs, two at the top of the bracket and two at the bottom. In the end much stronger install then using the wall ankers in my opinion. I love this microwave. It looks great giving an updated look to an outdated kitchen, lol, and prevented me from cutting down the cabinets to be able to fit regular size microwave. p.s. Just be ready to do something with the extra space on the back wall that is left under the microwave . Mine left a bare wall so before installing the new unit I had to place some stone tiles where the regular tiles were missing, just an extra time spent but make sure to plan for that when replacing a larger unit with this one. Good luck

    I was trying to find a sleek and modern range fan, but was about to give up when I saw this. I didn't even know they made these, and I am so glad I got one. Everyone that sees my kitchen is amazed by the look of the low profile microwave. It does stick out slightly more than a regular microwave, but it is unobtrusive. My favorite feature is the "touch to open" button. You just lightly tap the button and the door pops open, it's a really nice feature. The fan feature works well and have had no issues with overheating or anything of the sort. Installation was very easy.

    Solidly designed, outstanding performance and it looks great above our cooktop. This microwave exceeds ALL of our expectations. It's modern in terms of features, installed with ease, is super quiet and has all the functions we require. Kudos to the Whirlpool engineers for executing such a phenomenal product. The black stainless is a very close match to our GE dishwasher and built-in oven and our Samsung refrigerator. This is a excellent product. Highly recommended if you need a hood/microwave combination that is quality throughout and available at a good price. Don't let the compact size fool you.

    This unit looks great above my Sammy slide-in range. Let me tell you - for a smaller microwave - it is a bit heavier than the old Samsung uwave. You will need help supporting it while the bolts are screwed in from above. Thanks neighbor! Equal wattage as before but maybe not 1000w as before. Needs a little more time to cook some items. Love the 30sec basic time when Start is pushed, for rolls and cups of coffee etc.

    Not as expected!

    Bought this OTR microwave for the space saving, design,style, and the fact that it could be used as a re-circulating vent (not vented outside). The venting is pretty much non existing. The unit has a 4 speed fan but I'm not sure what it does since it does not draw any air up from the bottom at any speed. Pretty disappointed if I known or read this on another review I would not have spend $$$ on this unit. If you want to use this with the re-circulating option be aware it does not work very well.

    After 3 months I can say (happily) this unit works extremely well for our needs (although we haven't tried to cook a whole, already dead- bird in there yet). Looks sleek and modern. reduce space usage so you don't need a McMansion size kitchen to fit it in. Cleans up easily enough that throwing a greasy, heart sludge- cow carcass burger without a cover for spatter does not slow us down from use. Hope this helps...

    We love this microwave. We have an older house and did not have the room for a traditional size over the range microwave. I know some people may think it's too small; however, it's almost the same interior size as many counter-top microwaves. Install took a little time to complete, but it works great. Love the look, love the functionality.

    I pulled it out of the box and one of the sides is damaged. The mounting will cover most of it. I’m debating on whether or not to have it replaced. I’m knee deep in the install since I’ve removed the old microwave. I will update after the install is completed
