      A good-looking, well functioning unit

      I'm very happy with this microwave. It has clean lines, works well and is easy to operate. "Cheat sheet" on the inside of the door opening helps user pick various settings that might not be used as often. Sales person noted that this microwave was "taller" than the other brands, but I really didn't notice any difference once it was installed. My only complaint is the location of the power cord. My overhead cabinet does not have a space underneath to stow excess cord. The cord position is fixed on one side. If your house power outlet is on the opposite side in the cabinet above, as mine is, you have this long, heavy, stiff cord running through the cabinet above it. And there isn't even a "wall hugger" plug on it. I'd really like to see a design with a separate cord and optional outlets on either side of the unit to minimize interference in the cabinet above. I had to put a false floor in my cabinet to get the cord out of the way. The filter could be bigger or positioned differently to allow the vent to work better. Minor issue, but it could be improved. I thought the venting out the top would be a condensation problem on the face of my overhead cabinet, but it was fine. All in all, I'm very happy with this model.

      If it was possible to install, it might be OK.

      Cheap price (replacement where we plan to move in 2 years and new buyers will likely want new appliances), got to us relatively fast, but is dented beyond recognition. Now, the packaging seemed sturdy and looked undamaged, so I can only imagine that that damage actually occurred before packaging and whoever was at the front end just assumed that it would "all be OK." Now, honestly, we are desperate for a microwave to warm bottles, etc. so I'd probably just chalk it up to experience and install it anyway, but one of the corners is dented so bad, the hole on the top can't screw to hold up the microwave, so installation is not even possible. Maybe it's for the best. Maybe the internal mechanism was also damaged and I would have microwaved my family. So, what are my options? I get to lug this huge thing to best buy and they will send me a replacement? (great! Another week without a microwave).

      I purchased this item to match my Black and Stainless stove. The description online says Black & Stainless and the packaging says black & stainless. It is actually more of a gray & stainless. Unfortunately it was purchased and installed before I got to take a look at it outside the packaging. I was very disappointed in the color and it looks "off" hanging above my BLACK & stainless stove. I have no complaints about the performance but when I completely re-do my kitchen in a couple of years I will be replacing this microwave with a BLACK and stainless one. Glad I didn't pay a lot for it. Performance is very important but I also want it to look good in my kitchen. Also, the Whirlpool microwaves really need some type of "grille" over the exhaust vents. Most other brands of microwave I looked at have a grille over the exhaust holes. I have a cabinet over the microwave and it would help prevent small objects from falling into the large exhaust holes.

      Sleek looking and does the job

      I researched this microwave and compared it to the slightly larger one (1.9 Cu. Ft.) that has a few more fancy features. Even though this one was the same price as the larger/fancier one at the time of purchase (with price-matching), I chose this one solely because the control panel's coloring (gray) matched my oven. When turned on, I notice the sound a little more than I did with my old GE microwave (maybe little louder and/or a different pitch), but it's nothing to complain about. It does its job and I haven't had any problems (I've been using it for maybe a few weeks now). Also, the directions it comes with don't explain the control functions, so open the door and look at the sticker on the inside panel. It's a little something to get used to (for instance, when trying to defrost a smoothie), but maybe that's just how microwaves are made now.

      Microwaves arrived when it was supposed. we found it extremely easy to install I would say maybe 15 minutes with a few tools that were needed. We have used it for a month now and are extremely happy with it seems to stay very clean and does not splatter food while it's cooking although we have been covering most everything are older microwaves would seem to make a mess no matter what we did. We had bought a Whirlpool stove about 6 months ago so we went with this Whirlpool microwave to match and they look great together but highly recommend again.

      Came dented and bent

      The microwave came in a smashed boxed. We picked it up at the store and they seemed unconcerned with the condition of the box. My husband took it out of the box at home to discover the right corner all dented in quite a bit. He wanted to surprise me with it and so proceeded to install it hoping the damage would not show. It is very obvious but it will be such a pain to take it down now. Very disappointed in the quality concern at the store. I understand that this can happen with open box but we did not order that for this very reason.

      microwave looks and operates great

      This microwave was an open box so I was a little worried when I saw it had some minor dents on the back (not visible once installed). Since Best Buy stated they guaranteed it would work and also that I could return it if it didn't work. I got it home and hooked it up very easily and it worked like brand new. It cooks the food properly and all items have been cooked through and no uncooked or overcooked spots. I have had it for a few weeks now and have done everything from warming items up to cooking from frozen and thawing frozen items out. It does the requested job perfectly. It also looks very nice and is roomy. I recommend this product!

      Great microwave for the money

      So far so good, this microwave looks great and functions well. The controls are basic and simple to use. My only complaint is it doesn't offer quick cook like my old microwave but it does have several other options so not a big deal. The fan is a little on the loud side but not a huge problem for the times its needed. The light could be brighter but about what's expected from a over the range unit. Installed myself but not a project for those inexperienced, great instructions included. Filler panels for the sides are way pricy so I've done without for the time being. All in all pretty pleased.
