Great microwave!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I needed to replace my microwave because it died. I researched and came across this microwave. It looks amazing in my kitchen and the features are numerous.
by Boo0427
Not a good product!
The first time I had trouble with the microwave. It was because the clip that keeps the door closed broke off! I had it repaired because the microwave was only 2 yrs. old! The second time it broke. I just went ahead an purchased a new one with a warranty policy because I didn’t want this to be a problem again! Within 8 months of acquiring the new one. The microwaves inside paint started peeling off. They said it was defective. They gave me a new one but they were going to use my extended warranty for that! So that left the new one with no coverage! Now two years later the “ magnetron “ has gone bad. Basically I need to replace this microwave again! Not going to get this microwave ever again! I only did it because it matched the other whirlpool appliances I had in the kitchen!

No handle/shows fingerprints
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] No handle and shows fingerprints terribly! I’m constantly wiping it. Also, hard to read the +30 sec button which we use constantly. I would not buy this model again
by MOM4ABC
Great Microwave! Sleek Design!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This microwave was purchased to replace a dead one. It is installed rather high for my use. But the guests in my home love it! It’s quiet and very streamlined. It heats food evenly and does a perfect baked potato in just a few minutes. I am disabled and vertically challenged. So I use a second microwave that sits on the counter.
by LWInk2
Heats quickly
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Purchased to match the black stainless Kitchenaide appliances. I am older and wanted a maintenance free surface. This is the best microwave for attracting smudges and fingerprints with every use. Hard to keep clean. The plastic push in button to open the door has wear showing after about a month of 2 adults using. I have mine mounted in a cabinet at eye level so I see the smudges all the time. A feature of this is that if you don’t take your item out after the time it continues to let you know by ringing a safety alarm. I am not a fan of this either. The performance of the microwave is good. Different cycles, favorite setting, defrost, etc. I think I should have stayed with the stainless finish but was looking for a modern black white look.
by Kathy
Very reliable, powerful wattage
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Whirlpool/ Kitchen Aid has kept these same dimensions for 20 years so after 6-7 years of heavy use, I can swap out for a new one without redoing my cabinetry. I love how powerful it is. I always cook for 20% less time than on package because of great power. Looks great in my remodeled kitchen, too!

Whirlpool Microwave
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This was a new appliance installed in my newly constructed home. Works quite well and I am very satisfied with this.
by Theresa
Very easy to use
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this microwave several months ago. Very easy to use. I melt butter quite often and wish it had this auto sensor feature. The only feature I turned off was the “done” alert tone. It was very loud. I used to have a over the range microwave and like this under the cabinet. Easy to reach and is a larger capacity.

Whirlpool microwave
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’ve had my microwave for several months now . It’s the best “missed thing that I have ever used” . The meaning of my statement is should have purchased years ago . Omg the sound you will forget it’s running.Awesome !!
by The Power Boss
Best Countertop Microwave
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Whirlpool 2.2 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave is the best countertop microwave you can get for a reasonable price. It has so many great features but the best one I like is the room inside, big enough to fit a 9”x13” casserole dish. The microwave I replaced was also a Whirlpool and it lasted 23 years also it looks great on my counter.
