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

        We have only had the product for a few months. Over our last "expensive" microwave this one is notably quieter to run, to the point where we were not sure if it was actually running. Also at 5 am when everyone else in the house is sleeping, I have found the door much easier to close, no need to slam. Outside of a microwave drawer I do not think you can find an easier closing door.

              Microwave required in our household

                    I have three microwaves in different parts of the house. Our large Panasonic microwave lasted just two months and the power supply went bad, so we replaced it with a Whirlpool. The box for the Panasonic was marked " Made in China"! I told the clerk that I did not want another Panasonic or one made in China and she said the Whirlpool was a USA product, but when a man was carrying the box containing the microwave to my car I saw "Made in China"! I hope they were not made in the same Chinese factory and that the Whirlpool lasts. I can't really evaluate it because it is less then one month old.

                          We've had this unit for about a year now and although it functions fine, when you close the door the latch is extremely loud. Like its slamming shut! Also when you open the door it springs open very strongly. I'm hoping someone will have seen this same problem and can advise me on how to adjust the latch...

                                Had for month now. Love the 30 second touch option. Also the frozen meat defrost. Before, meat would start to cook, not this model. Also the frozen vegetable button. Cooks everything just right. Have more to learn but I am sure I will be quite happy with this microwave for a long time. The button to open the door could be bigger as I have had surgery on thumb, and it's a little tough to push, but I manage.

                                      Bought this microwave to replace the Kitchenaid microwave that I had for 15 years. This microwave is more powerful than the one I had. It fit into the space that was built for the old microwave with one exception, the plug on the whirlpool microwave added about 1 1/2 inches to the depth. A flat plug would have made a perfect fit. Also, I don't like the colon between the hour and the minute on the clock blinking constantly.

                                            My old microwave was 30 years old, and took forever to cook food, which most times dried out the food or burnt the food. The microwave was so heavy that I couldn't pick it up.

                                            This microwave is light to pick up, and is fast and doesn't dry out the food.

                                            I am getting used to the push buttons,and enjoying my new microwave.

                                            Thank you Whirlpool for a great product.

                                                        This microwave has some very nice useful features that we never thought we would think we would need or use, but now we realize we could never get one that didn't have these options. It is nice to put 2 slices of left over pizza in the microwave and hit the pizza button and select 2 and it does everything for you.
