Attractive and powerful!

Comments about Whirlpool 0.5 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave - Silver:
I purchased the Whirlpool 0.5 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave in Silver a few weeks ago....it replaced a Sharp Half Pint that is no longer available for purchase...served me well for 25 years! And still works but the aesthetic has diminished. I've found the new Whirlpool microwave to heat food much faster than my old Sharp. I have a small kitchen so space is limited. The microwave fits perfectly on my counter. Love it!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Don't let the small size fool you!
from Portland Oregon
I have a very small kitchen. The Whirlpool 0.5 cu ft microwave is perfect for my needs. It has a unique rounded back and controls on the bottom of the unit - instead of the side - which means it takes up far less counter space.The control panel is intuitive and very easy to use. I was afraid it wouldn't heat well, but it does a better job than my larger microwave. It is small, but I can easily fit a dinner plate inside. The most difference is vertical space. There is plenty of room for a large coffee mug, but probably not enough headroom for a tall bowl. Overall, a great purchase!
Great space save, but buttons don't wear well
from San Francisco, CA
I bought this two years ago. Great space saving design.I've never needed to microwave anything that's too big to fit in it.Less powerful than others (heats slower) but that trade off is worth it to me for the space savings and good design.Beeping sound is a less pleasant than it could be.The button design is pretty good - I don't miss having a dial or number pad to set the cooking time.Biggest problem is that the plastic covering the buttons is wearing off - which makes it look pretty bad. I've not particularly rough with it, and not a very frequent user, so this is definitely a design or manufacturing flaw.

Love it. Nice and small, holds a full size dinner plate. Perfect for the two of us. Wattage is lower so have to heat longer but that's no big deal.
Lasted Only 3 Years No Service Option
from Brooklyn, NY
I purchased this model 3 years and it worked great until bright flashes started happening when in use. I made sure it was not related to the container material (e.g. metal, ceramic, etc). When I contacted Whirlpool customer service I was informed it has no serviceable parts and the only option is to replace it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I got this for a second residence that has little counter space. It fits the corner perfectly, heats very fast and is very cute. Have had no issues, would buy it again in a heartbeat! A little pricey but worth it.

Nice little microwave that fits neatly into a corner, out of the way. It's easy to use and works great.
Small Corner Micro
By Pilates Queen
from Wheaton, IL
I needed a new microwave and struggled to find one until I stumbled across this one. I fits into the corner very nicely and out of the way in my small kitchen. The power isn't the strongest, but I only warm up food and never cook in it, so it takes an extra 30 seconds or so to warm up your dish. It looks like an old school TV set, yet retro is in these days so it fits with my retro stove.
needing a space saving microwave, this was our only option - it proves to be a fantastic one...don't be fooled by the small dimensions, as it fits everything a standard sized microwave would fit.if i need to replace any of my other countertop microwaves in the future, THIS IS THE ONE for us!

The first microwave (same model) that I received seemed to overheat and shut itself off. Whirlpool sent me a replacement and it works perfectly. I like the small size - it easily accommodates a dinner plate or casserole dish but fits perfectly into a corner.
