      Simple, Effective Product


      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.

      Great Microwave for the price

      It has all the features we wanted in a microwave. A turntable. Plenty of power for home use. As an above cooktop microwave it required installation. Although we replaced a 12 year old microwave made of the same brand the existing bracket and cabinet holes were not compatible. Installing the new bracket was not difficult. Although templates for the hole cutting are provided I used a tape measure to figure out bracket placement. Once secured my son and I lifted the microwave into place. You have to tip it up. While doing that I had my son hold the appliance just a bit forward and marked the position of the screw holes. I then measured the distance into the cabinet for the holes. We took the oven out for a moment. I drilled. Put the oven back. The screws found their mark immediately. I found the top template difficult to use.

      Nice Microwave

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      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 ;-)

      Good microwave except for stainless steel finish

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      This microwave is good and is easy to operate, however the stainless steel finish around the microwave is horrible to clean. I have tried normal soap and water and windex (which is the what Whirlpool says you should use) but it streaks terribly. I can't get the streaks to go away no matter how hard I try or how many times I keep washing it. It's very frustrating that they won't go away. I am indicating I would recommend this to a friend but would tell them to stay away from the stainless steel finish

      Simple and it works

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      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.

      Good microwave

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite Plus MemberElite Plus Member

      This microwave is a nice size and has a rotating plate. I’m not sure why they don’t standardize the way the controls work on microwaves (such as weather you push cook or the time first) like they do with so many other things. This one is the opposite of what I’ve used for the past ten years, so it took some getting used to. There are also several other buttons, so I’m sure it can do amazing things. I haven’t had the time or need to test them all out. It’s fairly easy to clean.

      Great MWave

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
      • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

      I replaced my old above range Whirlpool MWave that I installed in 2001. It still works great although it is pretty worn and dated. I went with the same brand and trust Whirlpool to deliver. This MWave is very elegant and functional. It meets and exceeds my expectations. It may not have every feature that other companies put on their appliances. But I know of many friends who have those brands and are always servicing them. Whirlpool is a trusted kitchen appliance company.

      Blower motor fan NEVER worked

      • My Best Buy® MemberMember

      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.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
