Maximize your counter space. This sleek microwave's unique rounded back allows it to fit into corners, making it ideal for tight spaces like small kitchens and dorm rooms. It can also fit a full dinner plate thanks to a glass turntable that is larger than those in standard comparable microwaves. Finally, an integrated handle and console, blue LED display and easy-to-clean Tap Touch controls give this model a sense of modern style.

        Comments about Whirlpool 0.5 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave - Silver:

        This is a great counter microwave for a small kitchen or apartment. I use it to reheat meals, poach my chickens' eggs. Many positives but one negative.
        Unfortunately, it did not last very long. less than two years and flash burst from the lower left side. I was standing nearby and quickly unplugged. Repeat action and the same happened.

                    This microwave is beautiful and its controls are well-designed and easy to use. We did find that the lettering on the front panel is easily scratched and - after only a month - we had the unit replaced by the store. We now are being very careful with fingernails and hoping that the letters' covering has been toughened.

                          Bought this about a month ago to avoid the expense of an over the stove microwave install and to not take up much counter space. This did both perfectly. All of the features and performance of a large microwave while taking up half the space. Amazingly large inside considering the small outside.

                                I bought this microwave a month ago because of my limited counter space and its unique corner fitting design. It has been wonderful! It is just the right size and has excellent heating capability. It also looks so modern that when people come over they think it's a TV! Highly recommended.

                                      Our 10 year old microwave died and we needed to replace it so we invested in this one. Whirlpool has a great brand name! Unfortunately it short circuited less than a year after purchase (daily use). Warranty kicked in (excellent customer service) but sad that microwave did not live up to brand expectations. Would be great if used once in a while.

                                            I bought it about 2 months ago, and it now is one of my go-to appliances when getting meals ready.
                                            The size is just perfect for my limited kitchen space.

                                                  I bought this about a month ago, wanted something space saving and easy for my elderly mother to use, works on both counts. A full size dinner plate will fit inside and it sits nicely in a corner.

                                                        I do not use a microwave to cook in so for my needs this microwave is exactly what I have been looking for for years. It looks and fits perfectly on my counter. I have received many compliments. Tank you Whirlpool, your products are the best!

                                                              Very happy with it. Small but plenty big enough for the jobs I need a microwave to do. Great that it fits neatly into the corner and takes up so much less space than a regular rectangular microwave. Just one minor issue: wish you could stop the time and not have the timer only go to zero.
