Wait till you need to replace the lightbulb, then review it

Patti 8/29/2017

I bought this microwave in 2011 and it still works, for that, I am grateful. But the lightbulb went out shortly after I bought it. The users manual shows the "location" of the lightbulb. No mention of a replacement bulb part number or how one might go about installing it. Online help says if no light, replace the lightbulb. There is no access to it other than removing the housing with a special screwdriver that most people do not have in their home. My next microwave will be one that doesn't require an appliance dealer to replace the bulb. Yes, I recommend this microwave to a friend who doesn't mind cooking in the dark.

mom 7/25/2017

Due to the fact a household member can't access a microwave over the stove, and that I wanted to hide it on a small counter, the fit is perfect. The small size is the only one I found on the market, and a welcome change from the others. Love it. Love the fact I can see what's going on in there too.

Counter top space saving

WarAdmiral 5/30/2017

My wife didn't like that the previous Kenmore Microwave took up so much of the counter top. This new Whirlpool saves space, but at the sacrifice of function. They key pad normally on a microwave is gone. You have to use the up and down arrows to set the timer or the clock, etc. Had i realized the inconvenience I probably wouldn't have bought this model.

Best microwave ever!

Mamabear 3/4/2017

I have a brand new custom kitchen. I did not want a built in. I only use a microwave for 3 things: boil water, heat leftovers, and popcorn. The counter space you will save is well worth the extra 30 seconds it takes compared to a higher wattage microwave. The circular interior is easy to clean. It looks like a little tv. In the 2 years I've had it, not once have I needed a larger one. One of the smartest purchases I've made.

Did I get a lemon?

Wary 2/6/2017

Great concept but, after only 2 and a half years it quit working. The unit has been used moderately by self only. As of yesterday the display persists in reading out "door" and no action revives it. A repair representative told me my best recourse is to buy another, but I hate to throw good money after bad. I bought this microwave to replace my still working, 20 year old, GE microwave so that I could free up some needed counter space.

Didn't last long

cheer4turtle 1/17/2017

I bought this microwave in October 2014 and it lasted until December 2016. While warming my coffee for 45 seconds, it began making a loud buzzing noise and smoke started coming out of the side. Needless to say it no longer works. I loved this microwave because it fit perfectly where I needed it and functioned great until it didn't...

No one needs a bigger microwave

fan 12/12/2016

We bought this microwave two months ago and LOVE it. I don't know why people don't demand small units like this. No one needs a bigger microwave. I put a 10lb. bag of chicken thighs in it to thaw last week and it did a great job. True, the bag just fit, but it did. I rarely need to thaw 10lbs of meat anyway. If they would make one like this that was well built and had more power everyone would want one if they could realize that this size is PERFECT. I hope they never stop making this microwave (unless that is, they make it better, and then I would be willing to pay the price for a better one)! By the way, I put a piece of rubber shelf liner under the unit to keep it from moving when you open the door and it is perfect. Whirlpool: Put some little rubber feet under it and it feels like it is a much more substantial appliance, probably have to charge a quarter more for it though.

LC 12/1/2016

I just bought this several days ago. I'm not sure if this is normal quality for the product. Our previous microwave (Panasonic) makes a low, quite sound when operating, but this new one sounds like a truck engine in the house. The shell of the tiny, cute microwave is practically shaking while heating food. Once a small spoon on the same countertop actually moved a bit when I turned the microwave on. It is cute and space saving, but not pleasant to use for me.

I purchased the Whirlpool 0.5 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave in Silver a few weeks ago....it replaced a Sharp Half Pint that is no longer available for purchase...served me well for 25 years! And still works but the aesthetic has diminished. I've found the new Whirlpool microwave to heat food much faster than my old Sharp. I have a small kitchen so space is limited.

Great space save, but buttons don't wear well

J 10/16/2016

I bought this two years ago. Great space saving design.I've never needed to microwave anything that's too big to fit in it. Less powerful than others (heats slower) but that trade off is worth it to me for the space savings and good design. Beeping sound is a less pleasant than it could be. The button design is pretty good - I don't miss having a dial or number pad to set the cooking time. Biggest problem is that the plastic covering the buttons is wearing off - which makes it look pretty bad. I've not particularly rough with it, and not a very frequent user, so this is definitely a design or manufacturing flaw.

I purchased this model 3 years and it worked great until bright flashes started happening when in use. I made sure it was not related to the container material (e.g. metal, ceramic, etc).

Small Corner Micro

Pilates Queen 9/23/2016

I needed a new microwave and struggled to find one until I stumbled across this one. I fits into the corner very nicely and out of the way in my small kitchen. The power isn't the strongest, but I only warm up food and never cook in it, so it takes an extra 30 seconds or so to warm up your dish. It looks like an old school TV set, yet retro is in these days so it fits with my retro stove.

Awesome size, can be loud

Cassie 8/26/2016

Bought and received this microwave earlier this month. We mainly got it because it was small and didn't take up much counter space. It was perfect in that regard because now we have so much more room on your counters then we did before. The only setback I would have with this Appliance is that it can be loud. We don't microwave too much so we're okay with it.

Could be Better

wiremaniac 7/11/2016

I replaced my 20 year old Sharp Half-Pint because the timer dial finally wore out. I've owned this Whirlpool for a month now. It works as advertised. However, the absence of rubber feet on the bottom of the machine allows it to move all over the counter when opening/closing the door. Also, it gives off an offensive odor during operation which takes a while to dissipate.

Old Timer 7/1/2016

We bought this microwave to replace one in our travel trailer. It had to fit the existing space. With a small adjustment to the shelf opening it fit fine. Have only used it on one trip, so far. The bright blue digital clock was a bit much at night. Would be nice if it could be dimmed. For road travel, it needs to be anchored to the shelf. I fabricated a tie-down system, but it would be nice if it had anchor points but in.

Great for Studio Apartment

ActorMike 6/14/2016

Takes about 2 minutes and 50 seconds to get 40 degree refrigerated water to a boil for tea. I'd say that's only 30 seconds more than a big microwave. Seems to reheat food nicely and evenly. Cons- Slides around on counter-top, needs some sort of non-skid bottom. Also, reading the negative reviews, many people complain about the short longevity of the unit, so I purchased a 3 year Squaretrade warranty for 22.39 with a coupon.
