        I bought Whirlpool® 1.6 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave with 1,200 Watts Cooking Power by Whirlpool
        a month ago and it has worked well so far.
        Our last whirlpool microwave lasted 30 years.
        Will this one too? We shall see.
        It should outlast me.

              I purchased this item and it died on us before a year had expired. We received a new one. It only made it for a few months, so this is our third unit. I remember having microwaves that lasted into the teens of years. Things have really gone down hill. Hope this one lasts at least for a year nowl

                                            I bought this unit to replace a built in Jenn-Air that died after 17 years. The specified dimensions seemed to be the same, so, I thought it would work as a drop-in replacement, using the same mounting hardward and trim kit. I was wrong, however with some shimming of the new microwave to gain the correct height, the trim kit covers the hole nicely and works great!

                                                  This works great in the cabines space that our new home had for a microwave. Larger models would not fit our space, but this has plent of power for a smaller unit. It is quiet and I like the blue lit numbers and background.

                                                        Comments about Whirlpool 1.6 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave - Black with Stainless Steel:

                                                        My previous microwave quit working after just 1 1/2 year. It was the 4th one in 10 years. So I decided to switch brands & chose this Whirlpool. There are few white ones out there to choose from. First the positive: much quieter than the previous, does a good job of cooking.
                                                        Negative: the button to open the door is VERY hard to push (with arthritic hands this is a problem), It doesn't have the quick features like others (ie: 1 for 1 minute, 2 for 2, etc.), you can't change the power level after you start it, the vegetable sensor always boils over before it stops. Since I use my microwave to cook these features are important to me.
