Not difficult to install (I did it by myself)
Big capacity and high power
Great exhaust/ blower
Makes more noise than expected (when exhaust is on) but not a deal breaker
Bought this to replace non working fan/hood
It was an open item therefore some minor scratches and bends...
Overall good quality...
if it wasn’t for the noise will give the 5 stars
It was more difficult to get out the box than putting up , one thing you need is another person to lift onto the wall brackets.the controls are pretty straight forward and food reheats on top and underneath without the need to flip over the food.
One of the best product I have purchase so far. I was looking for a microwave for a while and could not decide on one; finally I saw this and decided this is the one. I have no regrets so far, love it; bought it at the right time for a great price.
To be honest, Whirlpool was never a brand that I'd initially considered when replacing my 21 y/o GE OTR microwave. After lots of research, my Consumer Reports subscription finally verified all the good reviews I'd read online, listing the Whirlpool as a good choice among several major brands. The interior is huge (my son-in-law says that there's a "lot of real estate in there") and heats food up quickly and evenly. The finish really is fingerprint resistant, so my OCD self hasn't had to spend hours cleaning up smudges. The window is big enough that, at 5'7, I can easily see inside, unlike most of the other brands that have minimized theirs to the point where they might as well have eliminated the window. (People shouldn't have to be taller than 6 feet to observe what they're heating.) The interior cleans up quickly and easily, but is just a bit darker than I'm used to due to the silver-toned easy clean finish rather than the white interior I'd been used to all these years. It's not a problem I can't live with, however. Best of all, compared to my original one, the microwave is exceptionally quiet while heating food and the price was fantastic.
The exhaust fan is fairly loud on high, but extremely effective, which is the more important feature for me. We cook a lot of foods with intense spices, as well as seafood, so exhausting the odors outside is a priority here. I also like having a choice of 4 speeds + OFF, rather than just the High or Low options on our former GE. The door feels very sturdy and closes tightly, with no cheap, 'tinny' feel to it. The microwave installed perfectly into the space formerly occupied by my GE, but extends a bit deeper out past our cabinets by 1.5-2", and is a bit taller by about an inch as well. Neither of these measurements has interfered with the operation of nearby cabinets at all.
I've only been operating this new appliance for a short time, and I'm still getting used to all the options, but I'm 99% satisfied with the choice of this model/brand. The only (very minor) downsides are that: 1.) I miss the ease of 'instant' buttons (#s 1-6 made my selection with just one speedy press previously). This model's only instant button gives you 30 seconds at a time, so there are still multiple presses required. 2.) I wish that the lighting under the bottom was either moved to the front where most of the actual cooking takes place or split into 2 areas to cover more of the larger cooking surface on most newer stoves (see attached photos), and also made a bit brighter. And, 3.) I wish that the "off" setting for the turntable would remain that way until it was intentionally turned back to "on", rather than the way it currently defaults back to "on" mode after each use. Again, though, these are not issues that I can't live with because I realize that there will always be some features that are a trade off within the majority of appliances.
In the end, I'm enjoying my choice more each day and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
This microwave has a lot of good default cooking settings and does a fantastic job with cooking my food evenly. The best I have ever had actually. I have to read the manual maybe to better use the sensing technology because it does not stop and I have to stop the cooking manually. Still does great but that is the only flaw and I hate reading manuals for any device. Also the 5 year old GE it replaced was quieter when cooking. It sounds like it’s putting on a load in spite of having a lower wattage maximum. It is large and can accommodate big plates and the fans do an Ok job. GE was stronger for venting over the stove.
A:AnswerThis unit can EITHER ventilate back into the kitchen OR ventilate out of the kitchen through a duct that you would need to install yourself. Out-of-the-box, the unit is set to ventilate back into the kitchen, but there are clear instructions on how to modify the top of the unit to have the ventilation go through your exhaust vent.
A:AnswerNot a problem. When door is shut, the edge is flush with the cabinet. When door is open, the hinge is on the inside and the edge of the door is approximately 1/2 inch from the left cabinet. The door opens to about 85 degrees, this restricts the handle on microwave from hitting left wall. This unit deeper and taller then my old one. Because the burners are gas, there is less clearance on cooking with tall pots on back burners. I new this when I made the purchase. Note- comes with a turntable and wire rack for two levels of cooking. Instructions say to not cook with wire rack if not using it.
