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

        I bought this to replace a 16 year old Whirlpool 1.6 cu.ft microwave that worked flawlessly until the magnatron died. I'm very pleased with this one and hope it will last as long as the one it replaced. So far, the operation of it has been great. There are, however, a couple of minor things that I want to mention. 1) The new fan exhaust where it blows straight up is OK, but the styling of the top front that replaced the old one's vents is very "old-fashioned" looking. Add the large "Whirlpool" nameplate in the center of it and it looks very commercial. 2) I was surprised that the mounting system had changed so drastically. I was unable to use any of the old mounts, the cord hole has to be drilled front right of center in the above cabinet where it gets in the way of storage (the old one was in the rear corner and out of the way), and the template was backwards! That is, unless it was designed to be held up to the bottom of the cabinet instead of placed inside the cabinet where it makes sense! Fortunately I caught this after drilling only one of the holes. These are the reasons why I rated it a 4. Otherwise, it works great, the controls are easy to use and I'm looking forward to many more years of use.

                                            We've had it for two weeks, and we like it so far. No issues. It's heavy, and the fan turned on automatically when I was cooking on the stove, and it got very steamy.

                                                  This microwave is sleek and modern looking. It is overall an average microwave. It cooks HOT (sometimes too hot, causing food to burn). I've tried to reduce the cooking power to 80% but it doesn't stay at 80% of the power level. It needs to be reduced to the power level each time it is turned on. The display is also difficult to read.

                                                        Our old microwave stopped working and we had to get a new one. We were shown this model and it was on sale. It has all the features we wanted and was a great price. Our old one broke at just the right time

                                                              Have not had a complaint from the tenant- she is very happy with her new appliance. And she is a cook, so it must work well.
