Summary: I'm very much pleased with this microwave! It is very attractive and goes with about any kitchen décor. It is very easy to operate and is very quiet. It is also large enough to accommodate most any item that you may want to cook by microwave. I would recommend this oven to anyone but sorry to say it is a discontinued item thru Whirlpool.
Summary: trying to replace our old 1973 or so amana was impossible but had to find another microwave cause it finally pooped out. so we bought a panasonic from walmart and in a little over a year, it pooped out! so we ordered this whirlpool from amazon and its kinda cute. smaller then the other 2 but we dont cook in it, just heat things up basically or a frozen food. the door handle is great. the panasonic door was awful.
Summary: I was told by an employee at Lowe's that Whirlpool was the only company making microwave ovens in the US, so I bought this one. When it arrived I found out that it was made in China. If I had wanted one that was made in China I could have gone to Wal-Mart and bought one for a lot less money then I paid for this one.
Summary: I'm not sure why it's so hard to find a medium sized microwave with a handle. Does anybody else hate push button door releases or is that just me? Anyway, this microwave is the perfect size. Big enough for a large dinner plate, but no bigger. We don't cook in ours, just reheat leftovers and melt butter. This microwave performs those tasks admirably and doesn't take up too much counter space. Yeah, the stainless is only the front panel, but it still looks pretty good.
Summary: I was looking for a microwave that was a decent size, 1100 + watts, and...opens with a handle! Surprisingly, not so easy to find. I have used this just about everyday since it arrived, and I've had no problems. I don't know everything it does because I'm pretty basic with what I need it to do, but so far so good!
