Comments:

My new condo had limited counterspace. This takes about 1/3 the space of my old microwave. Despite a lower wattage, the cooking time isn't noticably longer. On frozen dinners, I've found that I need to follow the shorter cooking time still. The only potential functional drawback is if you want to use it to reheat or defrost something that won't fit on a regular dinner plate or in a bowl with same circumference or smaller, it won't fit in this. It's disappointing that Whirlpool makes, at least some, microwave ovens in China.

Ihave a small kitchen with limited counter space. This microwave works perfectly. It fits nicely and works perfectly. The display is a little hard to see, but not enough to hinder its use.

Comments:

I wanted something smaller with a sleek design for my countertop. This was exactly what I was looking for in my search. The only problem was the watts. I guess I chose a few more minutes for steaming vegetables with a sleek design instead of bulk. The display isn't as intuitive as you might expect. I had to actually read the directions to understand the power levels and defrost. After a quick read, I can control the power etc without difficulty.

Comments:

I dont like to cook much in a microwave, my main use is reheating a cup of coffee or soup, maybe some popcorn- so a full sized unit was a waste of counter space for me- this fits in a corner area perfectly and looks cute and unobtrusive. Buttons are easy enough to navigate, the only drawback is the dark backround makes them hard to see in low light, but once you know where they are it is not much of an issue.
