Recessed, stoppable glass turntable The recessed turntable handles larger items like cooking bowls so you can prepare caramel corn, party mix or soups in the microwave. The turntable can be safely stopped with the touch of a button.

Hidden vent Streamline the appearance of the microwave exterior with a hidden vent that also simplifies cleaning.

1,000 Watts Cooking Power With up to 1,000 watts of cooking power, Whirlpool® microwaves offer the flexibility you need to prepare all types of food, from frozen pizza to pot roast quickly and easily.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Digger54 7/20/2019

I bought this about 1 month ago. My husband was not too happy that I decided to invest a little more $$$ but, WOW was it worth it! It does a lot more and is easily cleaned because of its cooking area is coated with a non stick surface. Everything just wipes off. It was worth every penny plus more!

LoryJ 7/13/2019

Love the features of this model. It is so nice to be able to cook/reheat and keep warm on two levels and to be able to turn off the turntable for larger containers. The keep warm feature is really handy while coordinating the rest of a meal. The sensor feature takes the guessing out of reheating leftovers. We used our old microwave mainly to reheat, but this model opens up a whole new world of cooking. Having guests for dinner will be so much easier without worrying about timing everything to be hot at the same time.

Keeping life simple 6/18/2019

Easy to use, easy to keep clean. Cooking time is shorter than my last microwave. The start button isn't labeled. It's the small sideways triangle. Happy with my purchase!

David.mk6 8/10/2018

I got this microwave about 3 months ago and I'm very happy with it. I do wish however the buttons had some sort of light when you push them. PS really like the tone when the cook is complete.

So far, so good!

2/28/2017

So far, so good! The auto features seem to work well so far and the microwave is very quiet when in use. I'm pretty happy with my purchase overall! Only a few complaints:1) Odd size and low brightness bottom light over the stove. Because of its off size its difficult to find an LED replacement. There should be more than one to adequately light the are under the microwave as well.2) Why not design the microwave so you can store the metal rack inside but out of the way when you don't need it?
