Summary: I bought my Whirlpool WMC1070XB Microwave at Radio Lab. It was on sale for $99, marked down from the MSRP of $109. It replaced a 19-year-old 600 watt, 0.5 cu. ft. Emerson that had finally stopped heating evenly. My policy on food is: If I can't microwave it, I don't buy it!
Summary: I have a tiny kitchen and not much counter space...so this microwave fit the bill...it is pretty good for the size...better quality interior than the emerson of the same size. It was well packed and arrived in good shape.
Summary: We only use microwave oven when heating up food or drinks. This was a perfect choice; not too big not too complicated. It goes very well with our other kitchen appliences. There is one thing that is a bit unusual: you canot adjust the power level.
Summary: We have owned a similar whirilpool gold model for two years now. In that time the peg in the turntable has broken off three times. First time was covered by warranty. Second time I paid for a new turntable motor, third time I simply super glued the turntable support onto the broken stub of the motor...
Summary: No problems. Somewhat of a learning curve from my previous microwave which was about 20 yrs old - who knew. It takes a few cooking attempts to get use to the POWER LEVEL option. I don't have the automatic DEFROST settings correct yet, however, there is also a manual setting which I have used.
Summary: I bought this after I killed my previous microwave. (not the microwave's fault). I had the same make & the newest model. This one seems more flimsy - especially the button to open and close. Seems tinny. Frankly I'm sorry that I held out to find this one and pay a much higher price.
