      To me, the Whirlpool brand has always stood for high quality. We are considering next to replace the oven with a Whirlpool to match the microwave.

      Does the trick for a moderately priced unit

      By Lou Lou Bell

      from Edmond, Oklahoma

      Comments about Whirlpool 2.2 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave - Black with Stainless Steel:

      We bought this micro to replace a 10 year old counter top unit that is built in with a trim kit. It fits well into the space although we did have to raise the deck inside the cabinet with 1/4 inch wood strips to raise the micro slightly so that the trim kit would fit properly above our oven. This is probably unique to our situation and I would not expect this to be a problem for others. Happily, the stainless is so close to the color of our 10 year old oven that only we can tell the difference. Our salesperson was very upfront with us showing us three micros they stage side by side. They are all identical except for branding and only very slight differences in the looks of the control panel. The guts are probably identical and likely come from the same manufacturer. I chose this one from the three for merely aesthetic reasons. The trim kit for all three machines is "universal" and costs about half of other trim kits for a different brand. The salesperson was very upfront with us and confirmed the reviews that the latch is the least reliable part of the unit. Although it is warranted and prone to fail, the manufacturers are sometimes slow to replace and make the process more tedious that it needs to be. Since I deal with a small, family-owned business with an excellent reputation, I trust my salesperson will take care of me personally. The bigger question would be why well-known brands won't take care of a repeated failure issue they already know about. As far as the performance of the micro: it is noticeably quieter than the old micro that sold under a different brand. I miss the one-touch feature of my old machine (push the #1 for 1 minute, #2 for 2, etc.) and I don't like having to choose the size bag of my popcorn but I'll just have to deal with it. Otherwise, I have no complaints to date but we use ours mainly to reheat leftovers or to pre-cook veggies. The button to open the door latch is pretty stiff so if you are buying this for an older person or someone with limited strength I suggest you have them try it out before you buy.

      Installation was a breeze. Lots of room inside, nice features. I also used the surround kit with this over as a built-in. Surround kit a little cheap looking, but OK.

      Really nice microwave just wish I would have paid more attention to the door in the store. Its rather loud when you close it and the push in button to open the door is kind awkward and hard to push.
