        I absolutely love this microwave, I purchased it for our new house. Love that the operation is really quite, the most quiet one I've ever owned. And the power is wonderful.

        Small, but powerful

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

              This was part of our appliance selections for our new house and is installed in an oven tower cabinet over the wall oven. I was surprised that is appeared rather small being right over the wall oven, and surprised again at how quickly it heats everything we place inside. Very nice features which we will never use half of, but nice none the less.
              We have enjoyed using it in our new home.

                          We just purchased this a week ago and after a week of normal use (which is pretty heavy) we are very pleased. Different foods are all cooking quickly and evenly. Plenty of convenient features...very similar to a more expensive Sharp we had before this one. Price was right and we spent a little extra ($40) on a 5 year warranty to make sure it is worry free for at least that long. Size is a touch bigger than our last one which was always big enough, but it still fits on our rolling microwave cabinet.

                                Have been using it for over a month. Absolutely a great microwave. Easy set up and programming. Physical size is slightly smaller that the old one but cu ft is the same. No regrets on this purchase.

                                      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 purchased this from my builder as part of an appliance package. Great buy for sure. Easy to use and does a great job.

                                                              Heats very evenly & quickly.
