Review Title: 36 year customer of Whirlpool only appliances! | Review by
My husband has been a builder for 36 years and all our appliances have been whirlpool, and he always recommends them to clients. But we had to replace our combo/oven unit several months ago and this unit I'm reviewing is the noisiest thing I have ever heard. The fan runs for a ridiculous amount of time after you turn oven off also. The microwave used to turn off at end of timer with a peep to let you know food is done cooking, but this unit has a fan that runs until you actually open the door. So it sounds like its still cooking, peep goes unnoticed. We will not purchase another unit like this until Whirlpool can do a better job. I read other's reviews before purchasing, and several of them mentioned the noise, but I didn't think it could be that bad, but unfortunately for us we are stuck with it. :(
Review Title: VERY POOR product | Review by
Do NOT buy this product! It was installed this last May (2012) and the microwave has already failed and so far cannot be repaired.
Review Title: Great features ... like the ease of use and cooks great | Review by
Remodeled our kitchen ... this unit is simple and elegant with stainless steel front and interior...touch pad controls are easy to understand and use....great cooking capability and just an overall great replacement for our 25 year old Whirlpool unit....also purchased a Whirlpool stainless steel French door refrigerator and Whirlpool dishwasher to match the combination microwave wall oven unit.
Review Title: VERY Noisy | Review by
Oven fan is super noisy and obnoxious. Don't plan to watch TV or speak to your guests when the oven is on. Additionally, it stays on for 5-10 minutes after you are done baking which is another annoying feature. Lastly, the microwave fan is overly noisy as well and stays on until you open the door� rather than going off once the timer goes off like normal microwaves. My fault for not testing before purchasing, but it came standard in our new house. It sounds like a 747 is taking off in my kitchen when I turn the oven on. No joke. Don't buy it.
Review Title: Nice looking | Review by
I love the oven and the three racks. I also like the convection oven. Nice looking oven.
Review Title: Noisy fan runs constantly | Review by
Great styling and looks good in the kitchen, but for the premium dollars spent the design is lacking. First the fan on the oven runs constantly and is loud, even with the convection feature turned off it runs and puts out lots of heat. I was told the fan runs to cool the electronics, but normal ovens do not need this cooling, and I do not know why this oven needs its fan to run constantly. The electronic buttons are hard to engage and you need to push hard to engage them, again for the price these controls should be touch sensitive such that you do not have to push them so hard.
Review Title: Bad design and poor quality control | Review by
Save your money. This is the worst oven I've ever owned. I replaced the previous model (4 year old) and I'm sorry I did. First of all, quality control. This oven arrived with a dented door and an extremely nosey fan motor. I receive a message every time I use the microwave oven to open and close the door before it will operate. I don't know what they were thinking when they designed this unit. From the front, it looks great. If you have it mounted on the end of your cabinet like I did, you can see the mounting screws and unfinished metal edge. My older unit had a stainless steel trim piece that covered this. The microwave fan stays on until you open the microwave. Normally, when something is done cooking, you get a beep and the microwave shuts off. This one continues the fan running forever or until you open the door. How can this be energy efficient? Ad this with the extremely noisy fan and its very irritating.
Review Title: Love the encased interior! | Review by
The fan is a bit on the loud side. I wish the clock and the timer were in separate areas so that the clock remained visible when using the timer. I do, however, love the interiors of the microwave and the oven. I'm still learning about "convection baking" but I like having the option. The best part of my purchase----it's made in America!!!!
Review Title: We are satisfied with this combo! | Review by
We looked high and low for a wall oven/microwave combo that also offered a convection oven option. This was the best one we found in it's price range and the size we wanted for our new kitchen. The digital power and display is a little tricky to get used to, especially when you want to use both ovens at the same time but once you learn the system, it works great. The convection oven work really well, my only complaint is that the fan will run for 20 minutes after the oven is turned off. This is my first wall oven, so this may be a factor in all of them that I was not aware of. All in all, it looks fabulous, was very easy to install and works great. I would highly recommend this product.
Review Title: Beautiful Combo | Review by
Pros: Very stylish Easy to use Heats food for me
Review Title: Sleek Design and great features! | Review by
purchased with a new house. Love how modern and sleek it looks with our cabinets. And also loving the combo feature of the controls for the microwave and oven.
Review Title: Very loud fan | Review by
This oven came with a new house we bought. There is a loud and annoying whistling sound coming from the fan when it is in use. It continues to whistle long after the oven is turned off. We can hear the loud whistling sound throughout most of the living areas of the house. Annoying to the point that we are looking to replace it due to the noise.
Review Title: Excellent value | Review by
We selected this combination oven during a recent remodel after doing lots of research. This is a good product and good value. We've used the oven and microwave but haven't even begun to learn all of its capabilities. We've used them without ever once cracking the manual, so it's easy to figure out how to do the basics. We haven't used the "convection" features yet or adjusted recipes, but we'll learn. The best way to know what you really think is ask yourself "what you buy this same product", and the answer for us is yes. The only con is the noisy fan when the oven cools down. There might be a way to turn the fan noise off or reduce it, but as I said, I haven't opened the manual yet!
Review Title: First Impressions are Good! | Review by
The Whirlpool Combination Microwave Wall Oven with Convection Cooking unit is very sleek and complements my kitchen nicely. So far it is up to the task of both cooking in the oven and microwaving. The buttons are a little tough to press but other than that I don't have any complaints. I can't speak to the longevity of the product as it was just installed a few weeks ago. I like that the microwave and oven are combined so I don't have to use counter space for a microwave. It would be nice if the oven was a bit larger since I am used to having the two ovens but so far it has been OK.
Review Title: Excellent | Review by
I recntly replaced my old whirlpool combinationoven/microwave with the new verson and am very pleased with my choice' The microwave is larger and much easier to cleantand use. The oven is larger and aaain easier insert and remove foods The lighting is better and I like the temperature controlstje whole unit is easy to clean and it looks very nice with my matching whirlpool side by side Refrigerator
Review Title: Great Oven! | Review by
I bought this to replace a 16 year old Whirlpool micro/oven combo and this is just as good as my 16 year old model. Great purchase.
Review Title: Good product | Review by
I have been very happy with the performance of this product. It is very consistent when cooking, both the oven and microwave. My only complaint is the amount of time it takes for the stove to heat up. This may because I previously had gas, but still seems to take a while to reach temp.
Review Title: This product does everything that I want | Review by
I had an identical Whirlpool Oven/Microwave unit for about 15 years before it malfunctioned. I decided to replace it with a new unit rather than repairing it to take advantage of new features such as convection baking.
Review Title: Recommend with one reservation | Review by
Good features, easy to use, looks great. Only reservation is the noise level of the oven. It's noisy the entire time it is on. I know the fans are needed since it's in the wall but seems like it could be sound proofed better.
Review Title: Excellent Product | Review by
haven't use much but each time was excellent, look amazing and match with other stainless in the kitchen.
Review Title: Overall it's a good combination. | Review by
I'm short so the microwave door that opens down is difficult for me. Too hard to reach into the microwave. Fan in the microwave and oven is noisy, but I can live with it.
Review Title: so far so good on oven microwave wall combo | Review by
Easy to install and matched existing hole in cabinets. I did find the bottom vent before the oven quite sharp so I filed it down. Cooks better than the old one and bigger inside.
Review Title: Microwave Breaks after a year!!! Have to spend $600 to Fix it | Review by
I will fight whirlpool on this issue. After a year and a half, the Inverter which converts the low wattage to high wattage, died. IT will cost us over $600 to fix it. This is horrible manufacturing. What's interesting is they have built a new inverter with a new part number which means the one I have will be much better. Probably was created because they have already had so many issues with the old one. I hope Whirlpool steps up to the plate and admits that their old inverter is faulty and pays for our repair! Don't buy this Micro/oven combo.
Review Title: This product has great features | Review by
This appliance has lived up to all my expectations easy to use great looks & design
Review Title: Smart microwave | Review by
I bought this appliance because I needed a new microwave and it would replace my existing system. I am so wonderfully happy with it. The microwave has wonderful features that make reheating and defrosting so easy. I love the fact that the dinner plate reheat setting senses how hot the food is and automatically adjust cooking time. The oven is slightly larger than my old one and made cooking a 22 pound turkey for thanksgiving simple. Thank you Whirlpool for a great product!
Review Title: Looks great, can be difficult to use | Review by
Have the same keys that control both the microwave and oven units can be confusing. I also don't think the microwave heats consistently. Some items get hot very quickly while others do not. Our previous microwave which was 10+ years old seemed to work better. The oven does heat very evenly and we love the fact that the door is cool to the touch so that there is no worries when the kids are running around the kitchen.
Review Title: very good prodcut | Review by
I have had no concerns with this product, expect with figuring out the timer. Looks GREAT!
Review Title: Love the covection feature! | Review by
We have had this combo for 2 months now and love it. The convection oven wasn't something I have had before and it bakes things in almost half the time of a regular oven. That means less energy and less expense. My cookies/muffins etc have come out perfect each time! The only thing I would change is the volume of the beeps, which I'm sure there's a way....if I had time to read the manual!
Review Title: Nice product | Review by
We have only had this appliance for a couple of months but are very pleased thus far. Read reviews of others not liking the noise level, but this has not been a problem for us. The fan has to run to cool down the oven after cooking but it is not that loud. I would recommend this combo to a friend or family member.
Review Title: I love all my new whirlpool appliances except these darn ovens | Review by
The fans are so loud,I can't believe it. Please replace them. They sound like a very old air conditioner or broken farm equipment. They roar on even when the microwave is finished and when the oven is turned off.
Review Title: Excellent solid and attractive product. | Review by
We have had this combo microwave and oven product for a month and have become acquainted with all it's features which suits all our needs. Simple to use and understand. It replaced another Whirlpool combo unit which served us faithfully for many years. My only critique so far is the continuously running fan on the microwave after it cooks. Our old unit did not do this. We in fact thought the microwave was defective and called for service the day after it was installed. I read the operating manual and saw no explanation of the fan running. Service man came and called technical support to find out that this was a normal occurrence. Could have avoided this service call had you explained this in your manual. Did not pay for the call but it could have been avoided. Still don't know why it does that since it is kind of annoying until you cancel the program or open the door.
Review Title: Great features | Review by
I love the steam cook option for the microwave! The vegetables always come out perfect I like how the convection oven speeds things up for when I'm in a rush. Overall, a great product
Review Title: Very nice and easy to operate! Love it | Review by
It's very easy to operate! Great oven! And finally microwave does does not make mess while warming up food! It's also beautiful desighn. Very happy with my purchase
Review Title: elegant and practical | Review by
We bought this wall oven, microwave last December when we remodeled our kitchen. I love to cook, and I am very pleased with its performance. It is an elegant and practical addition to our kitchen. Our previous appliances were also Whirlpool, they were totally reliable, we never had any problem or repair and after 15 years we were able to pass them to our daughter, who is now using them to her satisfaction.
Review Title: Wall oven cooks well | Review by
We love this wall oven! We cooked a turkey last weekend and it turned out deliciously! The microwave is good; like the stainless interior. Don't love how the fan continues to run even after cooking is complete in both oven and microwave, but it doesn't affect cooking; just more of an annoying noise.
Review Title: Happy, Happy, Happy...Wife | Review by
We recently have been upgrading many things in our home, such as carpet, laminate flooring, paint, etc. We have also upgraded all of our appliances. My wife got a new LG washer and dryer, a new Bosch dishwasher, and also a new Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator, and a new Whirlpool oven/convection/microwave. Guess what I got...a new garage door opener. What's wrong with this picture. Nothing at all. I'm extremely happy for my wife and myself as well. We have been married for forty nine years and each year keeps getting better and better. The fridge and oven are absolutely "GREAT". I never thought I would use the ice dispenser but I use it all the time now. I'm also comfortable drinking the water from the dispenser because of the filter system. And cooking in the oven, well, nothing burns anymore. As a matter of fact, she just now cooked 6 dozen chocolate chip cookies all at the same time. They're beautiful. Did I say we have 3 sons and 13 grandkids. All in all we are greatly pleased and happy with everything new. Oh, I forgot to mention this one thing, we're not selling the house, we're staying in it. That's a first for us.
Review Title: Good features | Review by
Overall, excellent unit. However, the cooling fan for the controls is very loud and annoying. Due to the excessive fan noise, I returned my unit.
Review Title: Good and bad points | Review by
Have this unit in our new home and it is OK. Oven is nice, has a lot of options that I will probably never use. When trying to operate microwave with oven running can be very confusing. It's hard to clean the microwave if you have short arms because it is relatively deep and door gets in the way. Big disappointment that the timer function is buggy and has failed at times, and you cannot specify seconds, only whole minutes. Annoying if you only wanted to time say 30 seconds. With today's technology it seems like that is a blatant oversight, or lack of sight perhaps.
Review Title: The noise is so loud I try not to use the oven. The microwave door flips down instead of swinging open. It makes it difficult for shorter people. | Review by
I would never purchase an oven again until I heard what it sounded like. The noise level is horrible. I have friends that have convection ovens and theirs are quiet in comparison.
Review Title: The ventilation is noisy and annoying | Review by
I bought this oven for the design. I like the performance but I am disappointed by the sound level of the ventilation. Additionnally this noise is lasting a long after the oven is turned off.
Review Title: Nice oven | Review by
Had to return 2 ovens due to scratches a dent and something inside the glass of microwave door. Fan is not loud but runs a bit rough. Hopefully all works out. Otherwise a nice and easy to use oven.
Review Title: Great looks and functionality | Review by
We bought this refrigerator last month and it's quite a fit for our cozy and beautiful home. The self clean, temperature settings and other features are on par with the current market. Looks of this stainless steel appliance are beautiful and aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. I love it!!
Review Title: This product is just what I needed | Review by
When I started looking for a new oven (lightning took the old one ), I wanted an oven large enought to bake two pans side by side. This is it and it is 19 inches deep. Another great feature is the steam clean for small spills--I could not believe that you just pour a small amount of water in the bottom of the oven and turn it to steam-clean. At first, I thought these people are crazy--but the heating element is sealed , so it works like a charm. The only problem that I had when it was new was the oven was not hot enough. I recalebrated it myself, with a oven thermometer barrowed from the dealer, following the directions in the literature which came with it. So carried away with the oven, I almost forgot the very nice microwave that comes with it. Both are very nice looking additions to my kitchen...Thank you Whirlpool.
Review Title: Reliable and stylish. | Review by
The oven unit is great. The microwave works well also but I am kind of short and the drop down microwave door makes cleaning a little difficult.
Review Title: Just Okay | Review by
I was hoping for more when I ordered this microwave/oven combination. It looks great in the kitchen but the function is just okay.
Review Title: Amazing! | Review by
I am in awe of the space and convection power of this oven/microwave combo! I can bake six dozen cookies in 16 minutes! I enjoy cooking again!
Review Title: Oven Great - Microwave Not So Much | Review by
The oven and the convect oven work nicely. Also, it is quite a nice looking unit. However, we have had nothing but difficulties with the microwave. Many times it says the door is open, when it is not, and you have to reopen the door before the microwave will work. And, almost daily, we have difficulties with the timer. It "locks" up somehow and will not allow you to set it. It's good that I have a timer on my refrigerator, since the microwave one refuses to work for us.
Review Title: Love the size and functionality Hate the noise | Review by
We have had this combo for 6 months. It replaced a double wall oven and a microwave on the counter. The microwave is great and very spacious compared to other wall microwaves. The oven works well, haven't had to steam clean yet but will likely do it soon. We did have to calibrate the oven but the directions worked. Our only issue is the oven is very noisy regardless if you use the convection or the regular. In addition, the fan continues to run to cool the oven once off for about 10-15 minutes. Since we have a very open concept house this noise can sometimes interfere with entertaining so we just make sure everything is done before guests arrive. Overall very pleased.
Review Title: Large capacity and easy controls, cooling fan is noisy. | Review by
Large capacity makes it easy to do item/items you need at one time. Controls are simple and in the right place. The cooling fan runs for a long time after use and is noisy.
Review Title: Sleek design and efficient performance | Review by
We've only had this combo for a few months, but are pleased. The lower oven is spacious and temp is spot-on. Holiday baking and entertaining was a breeze. Haven't had an opportunity to master the convection feature yet. The microwave is very quick compared to the 20-yr old model it replaces! The combo is very nice looking, and the stainless steel is nicely finished, resisting fingerprints somewhat better than the new fridge. We were challenged to find a combo unit that fit into a cabinet configuration we didn't want to alter. While this unit was perfect width/wise, it's a full 6 inches shy of the height we needed. Whirlpool offers just one trim kit, which extends the height by just about two inches. An internet search led us to a California company that produces trim kits that cover the gaps! The finished look is great. Two minor functionality negatives to note: fairly loud fan noise when baking, and the fan runs for quite a while after the oven is turned off. Also, the microwave door opens "top down" like the lower oven door, meaning you have to reach over it to get to your dish. A little awkward for someone who is 5'3" (need a step stool to wipe down the back wall!) but not a big deal. Overall, the oven combo is an attractive addition to our remodeled kitchen.
Review Title: Microwave / Oven Combo work Terrifically | Review by
Push button controls are easy to I identify and use, especially while using both at the same time. Using appliances for our the first holiday season was just perfect. Everything turned out beautifully timed and cooked.
Review Title: Good | Review by
Before I had microwave and oven separate. Comparing with that would say good. exhauster works good which not leave any food smell.
Review Title: Great style and functionality | Review by
We bought this based on the style and the fact that it was a combination MW & Oven. The oven works really well, much better than the last oven we had. The microwave is of lower wattage and we have to cook things longer than we did previously, however it still does a good job. The timer only does hours and minutes. The racks are easy to adjust the baking is even and consistent. The controls are pretty easy to learn, but do take a bit of adjustment from what we knew before. Miss the express microwave settings we had before. The oven keeps a fan running which is rather noisy until the temperature of the oven drops to a certain level. Since the fan stays on a long time, it appears the oven does hold heat very well.
Review Title: Excellent combination wall oven | Review by
Love all the options such as popcorn, reheat, and defrost. They work well and are easy to use.
Review Title: Great Power on Micro | Review by
Using this Micro is faster and hotter and only two thirds the time required. Oven uses funky, can't find bulbs and they burnt out in the first three uses. Trying to find and we think they are $25.00 each, there is two of them.
Review Title: New Built-ins | Review by
My wife and I decided to bring our kitchen up-to-date and we got the whirlpool microwave/convection oven combo built-in oven. Both ovens are fantastic. The microwave is large enough for almost any backing dish you would ever want to use and the convection oven seems to bake evenly and quicker than a conventional oven. Both have easy to use controls. This was a great product for the cost.
Review Title: Great product....simple and well engineered. | Review by
Bought to replace older single over, with a few modifications, made it into a combination that is simple and efficient to use. Could not be happier!
Review Title: A bit dissapointed for the cost. | Review by
I upgraded my kitchen which had new white appliances so I chose this one as the design and look is great but some of the features are not as good as my old appliance. I cook alot and was surprised to find out that it does not have convection roast, only convection bake and that is a difference on how things are cooked. The cost on this unit should have that option! Takes a long time to warm up and for heavens sake the cool down after you turn it off seems to go on forever (both oven and microwave), didn't have that in the old ovens so why now? The control panel is not that great, additional buttons would be better than selecting a button and havin to go through a list of menus each time, I'd like to select and start. Also the panel shows every mark on it when you touch it...didn't anyone ever test it? Suggestion: put all the buttons on one side of the digital screen for the microwave and the buttons for the oven on the other side, doesn't flow easily. Also, adjusting the sound to the lowest volumn is still loud enough you can still hear it across the house in the bedroom so now I have to leave it turned off. It does cook foods well but lots of oven do and the price you pay for this one you would expect more. Very dissapointed and would trade it in for another brand if I could. I get compliments on the way it looks but that's all I would say is great about this oven unit.
Review Title: Love the Look and Style | Review by
The combo Microwave and Wall oven was a package item with other kitchen applaince. I love the style and look of the appliance. I like tge fact you can not see the coil on the bottom which make it easier to clean. However, does not really cook or heat up to the standard. For example, following direction for items to heat up at certain temputare and time, I have to cook longer than the recomended time due to not hot enough or under cooked. Also, the oven is loud.
Review Title: Good and cooks well | Review by
Bought this unit with a new construction house. The unit works well but the light in the Microwave didn't work, which is being replaced under warranty.
Review Title: I'm so glad that I decided to go with the combination microwave/oven combination wall unit | Review by
Of all the appliances I have recently purchased, this one is at the top of my list. I love the combination wall unit. It is exactly what I had dreamed of when remodeling my kitchen. I love it.
Review Title: The best of the best in wall oven combos. | Review by
The thing is brilliant. So simple to use, its controls just do what you want it to. Never had to read the manual, just puch the microwave button once, and it's set for 30 seconds, oush again, and each time it ups the ante by another 30 seconds. Hit the bake button on the oven, and it's preset already to 350F when you push start. It has a preheating feaure which brngs it up to temperature rapidly, and once ready it gives you a pleasnt beep. Set the time with a couple more clicks, and you're done. The oven looks fabulous in out new kitchen, with a beautiful deluxe finish and ultra-sleek look. Large oven with great light, making it very to see into. It is so large it barely fit in the 30" cabinet, as it used up every sqaure inch, making for a very big interior space. Dors open easily, it cools itself automatically after it turns off to keep the cabinet from getting damaged. Steam clean feature and the main clean feature will surely come in handy after we find something to clean in it. Convection is great too. Just an all around awesome oven and microwave combo, and my wife is in love with it too!
Review Title: If you are looking for micro/oven combination, this is very nice and looks good. | Review by
Conventional oven setting cooks hotter than designated recipe cooking time ... Plenty of room in oven and microwave. Microwave doesn't have express keys - miss those
Review Title: Most things I like about the oven. | Review by
Overall I am pleased with the oven. However the oven door glass has a greenish tinge that I find to be objectionable. When I see the reflection in the glass of my white cabinets, they look green. The microwave glass is fine. The programing buttons are sometimes hard to push. It takes a while to get used to programing the oven and microwave.
Review Title: Great combination | Review by
I love having the microwave and oven combination - saves cupboard space and is really beautiful.
Review Title: LOVE THE LOOKS | Review by
I love both the flat top and over microwave comb. I wish I had picked out one that had the knobs on the side not in the middle. Otherwise I love both
Review Title: A great looking unit to have in your home. | Review by
It is such a treat to have a unit like this all in one station, I'm able to arrange my kitchen around it, saving steps. They are also easy to use with just the right settings. Baking is fun, I use the fan as a warmer in the drawer below it for bread doughs. I've never owned a unit like this before, and I think I'm hooked, I would replace it with another one, no going back to the old fashion oven for me. I do have difficulty reaching the back of the microwave to clean properly, but am finding ways around that.
Review Title: Great features | Review by
I have been using this combo set for over a month and am very pleased with it. It is beautiful to look at and really compliments the rest of my kitchen. I can't wait to use it to it's full extent for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. The fan continues to run on the microwave until you open the door. Don't know why.
Review Title: mirowave oven combo | Review by
it takes too long to pre heat, and the fan in the microwave is loud we do like the look of it
