    Simple, Effective Product

    Posted

    I'm not passionate about microwave vent hoods; they only need to heat food, light my cooktop, and provide a way to abate smoke while cooking. This unit does all three just fine. The microwaveable space is quite large (frankly, more than enough for the average consumer) and the touchpad is delightfully simple to operate. And compared to my old tabletop microwave, this one heats food faster and very evenly. It shaves about 30s to 2 minutes off my reheat times! Awesome. The fan is powerful enough to pull smoke from the cooktop's front pans (not just the ones directly under the vent), and the light effectively illuminates the cooktop. The price is right too, with a good look and sturdy feel, making it pointless to spend more money on more expensive variants. My only complaint is about the basic design: the recirculating vent's exhaust port direction is UP from the TOP of the unit, not from the FRONT as in previous units. This necessitates pulling the unit about 2" forward from the cabinets to ensure the exhaust vent isn't blocked. If you like a "flush" look for your microwave unit, look elsewhere. Otherwise, great product.

    Nice Microwave

    Just replaced a GE microwave that was less then 18 mo. old (bummer) so needless to say i switched brands. Went back to Whirlpool which matched the rest of our appliances. Installation went pretty good. the exhaust fan venting was slight larger and set back further than prev. overs, but with the right tools, it was fairly easy fix. I simply had to cut the cabinet bottom a hair bigger and extend the venting. If you are handy, not a problem, if you are not, may ask for help. The microwave works as advertised. I really like the door latch as it is easier and quieter to open than the GE i had. That sucker would wake the host when opening and closing the door. You can also see the food through the winder better than our prev. oven as well. All in all, nice product for the money. Now hopefully this one lasts longer 18 months ;-)

    Blower motor fan NEVER worked

    Bought in March, finally got hooked up in May. The fan NEVER worked in it. Had a repair guy come up tonight sent BY whirlpool and he has to replace entire motor. You'd think it would have been checked out before it left the assembly line? Very disappointed. Have to take Microwave off to have this fixed so more hassle and headache. My 15 year old microwave works better than this. Hopefully this will solve the issue and I can move on. To say I am disappointed is a very big understatement.

    Bought this to replace my GE model which lasted about a year and a half before it died. This Whirlpool is simple and it works. I’m not a big fan of all the presets built in to microwaves these days. The whole installation process was easy and the Geek Squad even took the old appliance for $15. My only complaint is that the power cord on the Whirlpool wasn’t as long as the old one. I wish that there was a way that they could have replaced the cord when they installed it. Not the fault of Besy Buy but it would be nice instead of having to install a power strip.

    I had a GE over the range white that works perfectly. I took advantage of the black Friday deal with buying 2 appliances and getting the $100 gift card. The microwave was $169 on sale. I like how easy the door opens compared to the other. It has cooked everything so far to satisfaction. Looks very nice with the rest of the stainless appliances in the kitchen.

    Great basic microwave

    I looked around for awhile to get a good basic high rated under cabinet wave. It was an open box first one was dented brought back to Best Buy they sent me a new one for 2$ less looks like it still had a small dent on side but not enough to Take it back a second time. We have had it a month now and it does warm everything we place in it. It is inexpensive and I can’t justify having a convection oven and would probably never learn to Use it.

    We’ve been using this microwave for about a week, and it’s working well. It has a very small turntable relative to the interior of the microwave, which is odd, but not problematic so far. Also, I wish it had the “one-touch start” feature of older microwaves, where touching the “1” immediately turned on the oven for one minute, but it doesn’t.

    Replaced my 3.5 year old Whirlpool same size microwave. Quieter than the previous model, same buttons that I like, 30 second quick button is great, fan and under light buttons are easy to use and helpful. Popcorn button works but always have to stop it early otherwise will burn. Hopefully this one will last a little longer than the previous one.
