    Easy to use. Cool light feature too!

    Comments about Whirlpool 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave - Black:

    Everyone in the family finds this microwave easy to use and it's easy to clean. There's a stove-top light which I set on bright for cooking on the burners and then dim it in the evening to use as a 'night light' for guests......very handy.

    Great Microwave

    Comments about Whirlpool 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave - Black:

    The things I like about this microwave are that it includes a separate timer and that the glass turntable in it does not fall of its track (both issues we had in our previous microwave).

    Whirlpool 1.7 cu.ft. Over the Range Microwave.

    Comments about Whirlpool 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave - Black:

    We purchased this Whirlpool Microwave as a replacement for a 'Competitor's Unit' that failed. We compared the functions, simplicity of operation, the warranty and choose to purchase this unit. It has been all we had hoped for and are very satisfied with its performance!

    I bought this a month ago. It was very easy to install, and easy to operate. Looks really nice. The only complaint I have it that the turntable cannot be turned off. Great price.

    The appliance has a bold stainless steel look. The operation is great as I expected. A couple of installation options made installation a pleasant experience. I like it's look.

    Excellent microwave!

    Comments about Whirlpool 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave - Black:

    We purchased this microwave a couple of months ago and it works great. It was pretty easy to install. The microwave itself is lightweight and I was able to complete the project by myself. The only part of installation I did not like was the required use of toggle bolts on the ends of the mounting plate. I could not get them to lock tightly into place and I ended up using a different type of screw with some wall anchors. Other than that, the microwave works fantastically! When defrosting frozen meats, it does not over defrost and start to cook the meat like our previous microwave did. It's also a fairly quiet running machine.

    Works well, but cooking guide NOT user-friendly!

    By Consumer savy Sherry

    Comments about Whirlpool 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave - Black:

    Bought this microwave 3 months ago, and it works well, if you can figure out the settings (defrost, for example). I am very unhappy with the extremely brief "Oven Use" info in the "User Guide"; 6 pages of safety instructions and care, and 3 inches of "Use" instructions! For each setting, it refers you to a label inside the door for a "number code". For instance, "REHEAT, enter number code of food item, quantity, touch START". There are 5 types of food items listed. Most do not fit what I want to do, like warm a roll for 6 seconds. The DEFROST is even worse, giving you only 3 meat types for a code, and you must enter lbs. I haven't gotten it right yet. 49 minutes for half of a lb.?? My 10-yr. old model was easier to use! Whirlpool needs to redesign this feature! Engineers are over thinking this, and it is NOT user-friendly!!

    Great Microwave for the money

    By bigblockgt

    Comments about Whirlpool 1.7 Cu. Ft. Over-The-Range Microwave - Black:

    We bought the unit to replace another brand near the same size and right away noticed the extra large loading area. Everything about the unit is very nice - easy to use.
