    Beautiful and Functional

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

    I purchased this microwave to complete to renovation of my kitchen. It is a great match to my refrigerator and range. However, this microwave seems a little, off'? It works well, has 2 defrost features, vegetable, beverage, reheat and popcorn settings and more. The plate that sits on the turn table/carousel wobbles, yet its secure. The button latch to open the door doesn't seem sturdy enough. (I keep expecting it to get stuck. I guess I am used to my old microwave (loved it). I am sure once I am used to it I will love this one too

    Happy Microwave

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

    I use my microwaves a lot for cooking and reheating. I recently purchased a Whirlpool Model No. WMC30516AW. This microwave is easy to use. I especially like the Quick Touch Menu buttons. I use them quite often. The Use and Care Guide is easily understood. I have had several microwaves, but I really like this Whirlpool microwave a lot.

    Poor display

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

    I bought this 2 months ago as a matching appliance to my new oven and refrigerator. Apparently Whirlpool has updated their display technology for the oven but not the microwave. The two were supposed to match! And they do not. The microwave numbers are so thin and in a dark royal blue that you can not read them unless you are standing two feet from the microwave. The oven has a newer thicker and brighter light blue color that you can read all the way across the room. Complaints to Whirlpool were ignored. The store that sold to me came out and looked and confirmed what I am saying. They said it is supposed to be a matching set. The store contact to Whirlpool gave a response of that is the way it is.

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

    I am very glad we purchased this microwave. It heats much hotter than my old one and when I pop Jolly Time popcorn in it, it is very easy to wipe clean due to the nice surface its made of inside.

    Not as Good as I Expected

    By Hickorynut

    from De Pere, WI, United States

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

    I was replacing a GE microwave which was 22 years old. It still worked but had slowed down. I have the feeling this new one will not last very long at all. It is tinny and cheap sounding. When you open the door, it works so stiff, I feel I could chip a nail. Unfortunately, this was the only microwave we could find that would fit into the built-in spot for it.

    Guess I expected more.....

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

    I have had this microwave for less than 1 month. It is so light I had to put something under it so that it wouldn't slide all over. One leg (?) is shorter than the rest - shimmed. Door opening button stiff and must be pushed in completely to open door. Other than that it works fine. Don't know if I will take it back - still deciding as it took a while to get here in the first place. It is a shame as it is just the right size.
