Although relatively small, this unique design does offer some interesting features that make it stand out from the competition. One feature that is immediately noticeable is that the controls are on the bottom facing of the microwave and not the side. While different, this is actually a very practical feature if you are placing the microwave high on a shelf that would make operating a standard side panel more difficult.

All things considered, this is one of the better microwave designs on the market today. It would not be appropriate to compare it to large kitchen models as it does not have the features. However, it does offer many benefits that really make it work for smaller places.

Ample Power: The 750 watts is more than enough power to handle most dishes. Plus, the ten different power settings make this microwave very versatile in nature. You can cook most meals with ease thanks to this unique design.

Tap Touch Controls: For smaller spaces having tap touch controls is a definite benefit as it helps to properly operate the microwave. The fact that the controls are at the bottom of the facing makes it even handier when you need to keep the microwave high up on a shelf.

Small Footprint: The small, compact size means that it takes up as little space as possible while still being large on the inside. You can cook or defrost a substantial number of different foods in your RV, camper, dorm room, and many other places.

If there are any disadvantages, it is that the unit may seem a bit pricey for what it offers. However, as the many customers who have reviewed this item have stated, it is has proven itself in many different ways to be worth more than what was paid.


Overall, the Whirlpool WMC20005YD 0.5 Cu. Ft. Stainless Look Countertop Microwave must be considered a remarkable success. Despite seeming to be a bit pricey, the compact design, excellent features, and robust durability have proven themselves to be far more valuable for consumers who have purchased this microwave.

The simple, elegant design and small footprint make it perfect for places outside the kitchen where space is at a premium. However, it can also make the perfect back up for your kitchen microwave in case it goes out.
