    It's roomy but kind of loud.

    Haven't had to heat up anything huge yet, but so far I like it. It shows great, and messes inside wipe off easily, especially with dried on muck. The handle does get messy easily, but it is an upgraded feel to have a stainless steal handle over the plastic handle on our old one. The only downside so far is the venting and loudness of the fan. We cook on the stove often, and even though the CFM is good, I feel our 12yo clogged up Kenmore did a better job at odor removal. What's surprising about the clock/display is its only viewable directly in front for some reason. I like that at night so it doesn't light up the kitchen but to check the time if you're far to the right or left you'd be better off looking at a wrist watch. The attached photo shows the top of the unit is also vented. Heat and smoke/steam that's not captured from below may have an opportunity to be vented from above. Not sure how to clean it from there yet, but I'm sure there'll be a YouTube for that soon. The interior is grey and has a nonstick pan feel. It seems to be matted but i prefer it over the smooth white old style. The buttons are simple, and has a 30 second increment 'instant on' button but does not have a timer decrease button that I've noticed. As pictured the underside smoke filter detaches and cleans easily enough. The light is of good brightness, but I plan on upgrading that to LED, if possible, just to make it intensely shine. Overall, the price was right on sale for $199. This model seemed to be the same exact as the $299 model but without the facelift.

    We had originally purchased this microwave as an open box item, but the packaging was in such disrepair that we were hesitant to purchase it. The Cranberry, PA store manager recognized our hesitancy and agreed with our concerns, so she offered to order us a new one at the same cost as the open box--which we were excited and pleased to accept. The microwave has been very easy to use and it is quite attractive. It fit perfectly into the space our 7-year-old microwave vacated and was installed by my husband and one of our friends in 20 minutes. The only operational complaint that I have is that the light does sit further back than this microwave's predecessor's did, but in designing it that way the fan is situated directly above the stove top, so it just makes more sense. The only other thing that drives me a little crazy is that chime at the end of use doesn't repeat indefinitely as earlier models did--it only repeats a few times after the microwave or timer shuts off and I have forgotten items in the microwave as a result. Other than that, though, we really do like it and it had received decent reviews in Consumer Reports, sooo....

    Great but for the clock

    So far this microwave has been great. It fit exactly into the space where the 2009 whirlpool 1.7 cu ft microwave was. The handle, unlike that one, is all stainless steel. It heats well. You can turn the sounds completely off, even the final beep (though that means the timer won't beep either.) You can set the timer and still heat food without stopping the timer. It loses one star for the clock. You can only see the time when you are standing directly in front of the oven. Move to the side at all and it looks like it's off. I wouldn't have thought that would be a big deal to me, but now we don't have a clock in the kitchen and I miss it. Guess I'll have to buy separately.

    Fits well above the oven in existing space where old microwave was. Needed minimal modification of space to fit well. Geek squad team was most knowledgeable and cheerful during the installation process. They provided excellent communication beforehand as well and would highly recommend. The microwave itself is beautiful and its built-in light works adequately. The microwave is slightly less powerful than my other, older model, so keep that in mind when doing your cooking. A rack included in the purchase of this appliance can be placed at mid-level to double your microwaving capacity if needed, just remember to increase your cooking time. You WON'T be able to do a turkey and warm up a meat loaf simultaneously; there just isn't enough space obviously, as it's not a Tardus. The controls are well lit, nice font, and easily legible; they all work as expected, are intelligently designed, and laid out logically. The 30s button is my fave. A low-level chime sounds when heating is complete which may be too soft if you're in a noisy household or are hearing-impaired.

    Loving this microwave!

    We have only had it for a couple of weeks, but I love it. It is my fist experience with an over the range microwave, and I'm really enjoying it. The vent it's a little noisy, but I feel that expected for a vent. My only real complaint so far is the placement of the range light underneath. It is at the back of the microwave so it doesn't light the range very efficiently. I love the sensor cooking technology, the buttons are easy to use and understand, and it does not have the annoying quick start buttons. I feel the cooking options are easily understood and all seem practical for everyday cooking. It is very spacious, and the cooking rack is a handy option. The finished cooking beep is a good volume, stops when you open the door, and will keep doing reminder beeps until you open the door. This is a great feature in my opinion. No more forgetting food in the microwave or listening to annoying/loud/unnecessary beeping.

    Full disclosure: (I purchased this microwave on sale, less than $200). The install on this microwave is a bit of a pain because of the metal bracket that must be secured to rear wall first before you attach two screws through the upper cabinet; opposed to some microwaves that are supported only by screws in the upper cabinet. The Microwave is rather quiet and has a, dare I say, pleasant chime when the timer goes off. I like the stainless look and the curve on the handle. As for the functionality: It works. There is "sensor cooking" built in and I have tried to use it once when reheating a steak, but it took much longer (around 6 minutes) and it was still going. I eventually just opened the microwave and the steak was reheated and gone from medium to medium-well, but was not bad. Perhaps after I read the manual and adjust some settings this could be a 5-star microwave.

    Good microwave ... Don't like sounds

    I purchased to replace a broken whirlpool microwave but wanted to match the other remaining appliances which were also whirlpool. Microwave works as expected but it doesn't have quick start time cooking other than the 30 second button. The old one you pressed a number and it would apply that many minutes and start. The end chime is cheesy and prefer simple beeps. The numbers are blue which I didn't realize beforehand and don't match the others now. Overall, I'm happy with microwave and was easy to install. Best of all was Best Buy service. Item was on sale and received it in 2 days with free shipping. Shortly after purchase it went on sale even more and a short simple phone call Best Buy refunded me the difference immediately.

    Best range so far

    Before moving into our new home we decided to replace a couple appliances and this range was one of them. After looking at a couple different options, we went for this Whirlpool range. So far we love it! Of all the ranges we have had in the past this just blows them away (especially that it came with convection at this price point). The digital user interface is simple and user friendly and easy to read. What impressed us the most is how quick the cook-top heats up and stays hot for a while after turning it off, which is a nice feature imho so I can turn it off while I still have other things cooking. The stove portion is by far the best feature as I was pleasant surprised that it came with the convection feature (I thought I selected the one without). This cuts the bake time down for roasts by about 25%. Overall, we are very pleased with our purchase.
