Price Per
Cu. Ft.
  The Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) per cubic foot of microwave area is $200. This is priced about average.
Premium Features  Considering only those functions and capabilities that really make a difference, this microwave has an average number of premium features when compared with other new microwave designs.
Power  This Whirlpool microwave oven can generate up to 1000 watts of cooking energy. This is about average power with a standard level of heating watts.
Magnetron Warranty  The magnetron warranty is good for 1 year. Compared to other manufacturers, this microwave has a magnetron limited warranty with shorter than average duration.
User Ratings  Rated 3.6 of 5 stars by 25 users from retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Sears, and others. Compared to other user reviews of new microwaves, this appliance is rated about average.
Bake / Roast  Standard microwave without convection heating. You can't brown, bake, or roast dishes and meats like a regular oven.
Grill / Broil  Standard microwave without a grilling or broiling element. You can't grill or broil meats such as steaks, hamburgers, or chicken wings.
Staged Cooking  Can be programmed with a series of power levels and heating times that you perform frequently. Allows you to automatically cook your favorite dishes without constant monitoring so you can perform other tasks.
Sensor Cooking  Uses sensors to monitor humidity levels and automatically determines the appropriate power and time required to cook, reheat, or defrost selected foods.
Even Cooking  Does not use special technology to help ensure that dishes are cooked evenly. Most standard microwaves do an adequate job, especially at higher power settings. Moving dishes or stirring periodically is helpful.
Keep Warm  Does not include an automatic setting to keep foods warm after they've finished cooking. You have to manually select low power settings for brief periods of time on a periodic basis.
Non-Stick Interior  The interior includes a non-stick coating or stainless steel so that splattered food or drinks can be easily wiped off. No more scrubbing when you overcook foods or forget to cover them.
Turntable  Turntable is not large enough to rotate a standard 9 x 13 inch baking dish. If you just primarily heat-up food on a plate or small casserole dish, then this smaller size turntable should be adequate.
Stainless Steel  Stainless steel microwave exterior. Stainless is long-lasting, easy to clean-up, and is currently the most popular material for kitchen appliances. Provides a sleek, modern look.
Size  Above average capacity with 2 cu. ft. of interior space. More room may be important if you have three or more people in your household, or you like to quickly heat larger dishes for parties and entertaining.
