This review is from: Whirlpool WMC20005YB 0.5 Cu. Ft. Black Countertop Microwave (Misc.)
This Whirlpool .5 cu. ft. mini-microwave is just what I needed.

My office kitchen is tiny, so every foot of counter space is precious. This little microwave has replaced a huge 1100 watt one, and only in one respect does it not measure up:

The Orville Redenbacher Power Pop was a -popping flop. Sorry to say, maybe because of the angle of the microwave emitter, I couldn't get the Power Pop to produce more than a few tablespoons of popped corn after four minutes of trying. Too bad, because the Power Pop lets you use bulk popcorn in the microwave, but it was no go.

On the positive pop-side, although the instructions suggest you use the 1.5 oz bagged microwave corn, the 3 oz ones pop just fine, though the pre-programmed timer will not get the job done, time is too short. But around a couple of minutes and the 3 oz corn is fat and ready for the movies.

I was also pleasantly surprised to see that my larger-than normal dinner plates would fit- these... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars ... two different selections for this review because I both love and hate it, October 17, 2017

This review is from: Whirlpool WMC20005YB 0.5 Cu. Ft. Black Countertop Microwave (Misc.)
I was hoping there could be two different selections for this review because I both love and hate it. The design is perfect for my small kitchen with a one-person home. I just put in new counter tops and the microwave just blends right in. It works great and I couldn't be happier except for the "I hate it" part. When I unpacked this item, I found that this black microwave has a WHITE cord. I thought there must have been a mistake and I called Whirlpool to find out. Whirlpool's customer service and technical department has no idea what color the cord is. All they know is that there is no way to order a different cord. Since there was no way a white cord could remain on my black counter, I turned, once again, to Amazon where I ordered "Wire Loom Black 20' Feet 3/8" Split Tubing Hose Cover Auto Home Marine". There is still a white plug but that is acceptable. So if anyone has ordered this and needs tubing, I have 18 feet of it remaining!

5.0 out of 5 stars Efficient Space Saver!, October 9, 2017
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Whirlpool WMC20005YB 0.5 Cu. Ft. Black Countertop Microwave (Misc.)
I love this microwave! It is pricey for a small microwave but worth it. Simple but does everything you want. This sits in a corner freeing up counter space which was the main reason I bought it. A few weeks ago it was Prime for a little less money so maybe it would pay to shop around. I'd pay this price! I love simple. You just press the + button to increase the time and press start. There is also a cooking power button and a clock. I've been adding 30 seconds to each meal since this is supposed to be a less powerful item, but it isn't necessary.
