Microwave Strengths and Weaknesses
Cooking GOOD - Conventional countertop microwave with standard cooking functions. Quickly reheats leftovers or warms new foods using a central heating source that cooks food from the "inside-out". Does not have browning, crisping, or grilling capability.  
Cost POOR - Each cubic foot of internal microwave oven capacity costs $278. This price level is 153% higher than the average new countertop microwave. Ranks in the bottom 20% of the countertop microwave class with POOR affordability.  
Power POOR - Maximum cooking power of 750 watts is 25% lower than the average new microwave oven. Ranks in the bottom 5% of new microwaves for POOR power generation. Will generally take longer times to cook dishes and heat foods or beverages.  
Sensors GOOD - No automatic cooking sensors that can detect steam emitted from hot foods and drinks. Power levels and cooking times must be preselected by the user. Sensor cooking is available on about 60% of new microwaves produced today.  
Features FAIR - This Whirlpool microwave does not have any of the following special features that can make a difference - Staged Cooking: No | Even Cooking Tech: No | Keep Warm: No | Non-Stick Interior: No | Halogen Heat: No | Speed Cook: No.  
Warranty GOOD - Whirlpool provides a standard one year limited warranty on the magnetron, one of the most expensive components in a microwave. The magnetron generates energy that radiates into the microwave cavity and heats the food or beverage.
