Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by renoamateur Just what we were looking for
We were upgrading from a countertop microwave to an above-the-range unit, and this one met all our requirements, especially in terms of cost--we use a microwave mostly for reheating, so we didn't want to spend a fortune. That said, we could do more with this one if we ever need to; it's powerful enough, and has some "luxury" features we weren't expecting, like timed "soften" and "melt" settings. We've only had it for about a week, so no downsides have had a chance to appear, but so far, so good! Something to be aware of: although we'd opted to have the Home Depot delivery people install the unit, they initially couldn't install it because we have no cabinet above the range (we'd removed it so the microwave could be mounted at the correct height). We'd read the installation instructions on line, but it wasn't clear to us that, in addition to being mounted on a wall bracket, the unit must also be screwed into a shelf or cabinet above it. The first delivery team left the unit, and we spent the rest of the day installing a shelf. We then called the delivery company and rescheduled installation. A second team came a few days later and installed the unit in less than 30 minutes. A minor glitch, but one we could've avoided by reading the instructions more carefully.

Our old microwave died unexpectedly and after trying to live without one we realized that was not something we wanted to do. This microwave fit all of our needs perfectly.
*It fits a standard 30" microwave opening.
*The price was in the optimum range but not at the top.
*The energy efficiency rating was great.
*The color choices were better than most brands.
*The features (light, quick 30 sec, etc.) were all there.
Also, when used as a timer it will return to the clock feature after beeping done instead of staying on "END" until you come over and push stop. Definitely a plus!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrFixingIt Pretty good value/features, but shop carefully.
Replaced 12-year old Kenmore that I'd repaired a couple of times and was continuing to come apart. Styling of new Whirlpool a bit less appealing and more boxy, but had all the same features we were accustomed to in our older unit. One exception is the lighting for the stove top had only a small, short single bulb rather than the dual longer bulbs. It provides less light and shines more to the wall than down. Another difference is we went from a black model to a white model. The screen in the door's window is also white and reflects more room lighting making it harder to see what's going on inside the microwave than did the black screen on our previous oven. The convertible fan allowed me to block off the "out-the-roof" vent and use recirculating vent for better home heating/cooling efficiency. Installation was fairly straightforward for the average DIY-er, with good instructions and all necessary hardware included.
