Whirlpool WMH32517AB Reviews & Ratings

WMH32517AB 1.7 cu. ft. Microwave Hood Combination with 1,000-Watts Cooking in Black is rated 4.561 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a lot of the features My one slightly negative thing about this product is that the "reheat" button gives you these choices and some minor sub-choices. It just doesn't "reheat" and calculate from the mass or whatever. So, it either cooks too long or not enough. I have not found a happy medium for this button and so I guess on minutes and take it from there. Otherwise the product is great and we like it very much. It has a great tonal reminder that something has finished and if you don't take it out right away, it reminds you with that series of tones again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! This was the standard microwave that we could choose on our new build. We're so glad we didn't decide to upgrade it, as it is cooks/reheats perfectly and is so easy to use. My favorite feature is that it will give you reminder beeps if the time has finished and you haven't opened the door. That has saved me a time or two when I've left something in the microwave that I need for a recipe (usually melted butter ;) ). Looks nice and is easy to clean too. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has innovative features making cooking quick and easy. This product is easy to use and has features that make every day cooking fast and efficient. The turn table allows for even cooking. I especially like the melt and soften feature, the sensing for vegetables and baked potatoes and the defrost choices. It is also helpful that it allows you to easily add extra time to the preset times if needed. The microwave is easy to clean, both inside and out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with microwave We are quite impressed with the power of the unit. Our old Kenmore took much longer to accomplish the same thing. We have been very pleased with the potato setting that give us baked potatoes that are nicely done automatically.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Happy with purchase I've had it for a few months now and haven't had any issues. I'm happy with the overall purchase. I wish the sensor heating was faster but that's minor. I can always heat up normally with the timer and call it a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great This is a great product from Whirlpool. It does everything it was stated it did and has been working great. Not too loud warms food quick and does popcorn to perfection. This is a great product at a medium price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Features Have had this for 6 months and we really like it. It has features that we use a lot and others we don't. We like being able to set the power to how much we need for the item.... and the popcorn setting is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice!!! I picked this microwave out of a whole aisle of different brands. I have to say this is the best I have ever had, I really like the sensor. No guesswork in cooking a potato. Done perfectly every time!
