Product Reviews
Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this product! Our entire home is filled with Whirlpool products - for the first time ever- and we love all of our appliances. We appreciate the great pricing, awesome performance, and the general look of our appliances. I recommend using Whirlpool if you are looking for the best buy for your money. 12/29/11
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Basic Microwave I bought this microwaver this year. It matches perfectly with my refrigerator and stove. It is is a very good basic microwave. I don't need all the bells and whistles. Very good price and good looking! I loved the fact that the plate inside lays flatly with the bottom. I had the sensor feature in my old microwave and thought I'd miss having it since this one does not have that feature. But, it does have reheat which you can choose different settings for and it works just fine. I'm very happy with this microwave. Simple and afforadable! 10/22/11
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very stylish, easy to use and quiet We purchased this as a replacement for an older SHARP model. We are pleased that it is very quiet when running, the vent is much more quiet than the appliance we replaced and we like the look of this microwave very much! The only con is that it sticks out very far and that the vent is on the top. Like the previous review mentioning this issue, there is no fix for this yet. Seems Whirlpool should have designed an after market screen to prevent things from falling into the vent and becoming lodged inside. Also this is very heavy and somewhat tough to install for one person due to its weight and size. Other than that, we're pretty please and would recommend to a friend! 11/11/11
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to use! I recently moved into a new house and it was furnished with all Whirlpool appliances. I have never had Whirlpool and I must say that I am completely impressed with this brand! From the refrigerator to the washer and dryer to the microwave, all pieces function effortlessly and efficiently! Whirlpool is definitely going to be my brand of choice for my future purchases! 2/7/13
