Best Microwave Ever
This is the best microwave I have ever owned, cooked a pizza from scratch perfectly can’t wait to try it on more recipes! Would recommend to anyone wanting more out of a microwave.
Purchased in June 2021 at Harvey Norman for $365.00.
We've only had this microwave a few days and are already very impressed. With its crisping and browning features it has opened up lots of possibilities for new recipes and will save us lots of time on some old ones. Looking forward to finding out how much more it can do

Whirlpool Make The Best Microwaves!
Our MWC25BK is an upgrade for the ultra-reliable Swedish-built Whirlpool VIP 27 (M360) Convection Microwave with Crisp Function that has been our meal preparation mainstay for almost two decades. Heavily reliant on the Crisp Function and Food programs for most lunches and dinners, choosing the 25 litre Whirlpool Crisp and Grill was a no-brainer. Please note that whilst this is not a convection microwave oven, we have been in no way limited to what we can cook. I love the new unit's design and the way it improves the look of our all-black cookin...g precinct The controls are logically-set out and clearly labelled with icons and words. Although 2 litres less in volume than its predecessor, the interior cooking space of the new unit is very spacious indeed. On the cooking front, my perception is that the 3D microwave system by virtue of the positioning of the two wave guides (Lower & Upper Right), makes for better cooking efficiency. I have had to reduce my usual cooking times. The Dual Crisp Function is my most used function thus far, having cooked steaks, burgers, bacon and eggs, sausages, grilled cheese-topped tomatoes, salmon cutlets, and pizza to perfection. I love the easy-to-clean finish of the internal cavity. Normally my wider family members opt for convection units, but I was sold on this model by the many favourable reviews, the Whirlpool brand, the Crisp Function and the price-point. My love affair with Whirlpool products continues! I am sure that you'll fall in love with the 25 litre Crisp & Grill (MWC25) microwave oven as we have!

Nowhere near as good as my original Whirlpool CrispNGrill VT266
My previous (first ) Whirlpool microwave was the VT 266. It was my excellent experience with the VT266 which informed my decision to purchase another Whirlpool.
A: Having to set the time by using +/_ buttons is nuts. Cooking rice for example, I need 6mins plus 3 mins. That’s a lot of button pushing. Whether I use the jetstart button to add 30 secs at a time or whether I keep my finger on the + button.
B: No way to easily set e.g. 15 or 20 secs - Have to hit Jet start , - , -
C: Chef menu, Really – Chef menu button then 21 press...

Must have! Throw out the oven and this is the all in one piece
This looks sleek and sexy in my kitchen. looks small on the outside but very very roomy inside. amazing amount of cooking options. You can even Grill... This has replaced my 18 year old sharp microwave and the technology is mind blowing. Energy efficient and less cooking time then oven but same results. highly recommend. I look forward to using it even more and trying new recipes. Thank you

Even the kids/Hubby can use it!!!!
This is the easiest and fastest way to cook pizza, nuggets, cheese sandwiches, cakes, steaks and so much more!! Everything is perfect every time.... steaks are still soft and juicy not tough and dried out.
Everyone in the family can operate the functions with ease and get perfect food every time.

Love my Microwave
I replaced my Whirlpool Microwave after having it for quite a few years. I went for the same brand as I was so happy with it. I am just as happy. I love it. I use the Crisp function all the time. It took me a while to get used to the Defrost Cycle. I’m fine with it now. I don’t use the Chef Function but should and will study it. I would recommend this product to anyone.

My favourite kitchen appliance
I find it really easy to use, but don't use the Chef Menu as I prefer to program it myself. I love the Jet Crisp function and find it really useful for reheating pizzas and pastries. The only annoying function I find is the constant beeping when the program has finished.

Very Low Quality
I am shocked by the quality of this product. The two rear of the four rubber legs are missing, and supposedly, all units in this model are similar. The revolving tray is so wobbly that it stunned me, and overall low-quality steel interior and plastic parts. I've bought new microwaves for $29 that had far better-built quality than this $349 unit. I have repacked this unit up and will be returning it first thing tomorrow morning at the store.
People, if you don't know how to evaluate product quality, please refrain from writing reviews and misleading other customers.
Essential Kitchen Appliance
After using our Whirlpool 25L Crisp 'n' Grill microwave for several months now, we're very happy with its performance, and it has met our expectations. It's simple to use, defrosts, heats, and cooks or reheats food or drinks quickly, and is easy to keep clean. The Crisping, Grilling and Chef Menu functions are particularly useful to us for quickly browning, toasting and/ or cooking from frozen to ready-to-eat in one go, for various types of snack foods. An added bonus is not having to use our traditional oven/ griller for this type of cooking (much slower and more expensive to run). This microwave has become an essential appliance in our kitchen.

Whirlpool Crisp Grill Microwave BEST ON MARKET
We bought this MWC25BK to replace our original Whirlpool crisp grill microwave which was over 20 years old and we are very happy with the new model.
We like the Whirlpool Crisp n' Grill so much this is our third one and would never buy anything else. We bought our first one about 20 years ago years ago and our daughter has just bought her second one. Her partner has just given a new microwave to his parents for their birthdays as he is so impressed with the crisp grill function

Perfect for my small granny flat!
Bought this to replace my original Whirlpool crisp microwave which was over 20 years old and am very happy with the new model. It’s very easy to use and is perfect for me as I live in a small granny flat and it is better than having a conventional oven. Is quick to heat up and the crisp function is great and it also has a self clean function as well.

Nice Product! Love the look and design
I like the crisp function. I used it when cooking potatoes and sausages, they are perfect brown and the taste is not bad. The cook menu function also is good so far I have tried. I used number 4 which is "dinner plate", foot is heated quickly and evenly. I am not quite sure about grill function, have tried few times cooking pork or potatoes but it seems not very powerful. Not a big deal, cause I will not use it very often. Generally, I am happy with this buying, would recommend it.

So Happy with my new Microwave
I can now Crackle Pork, which I had no success with in my normal oven.
Easy to program and I can now cook a Roast in a fraction of the time.Has to be a big saving on electricity.
Casserole cooked perfectly too.
I totally recommend to anyone needing a new Microwave.

Questions & Answers
Hi whirlpool owners. Im just wondering if anyone has this model stored in an under bench cabinet cavity? Im hearing mixed advice about the amount of room you need above the microwave. TIA
This microwave - and all other Whirlpool microwaves - are recommended to be placed on a counter. They all need at least 30cm above the microwave for ventilation.
Hi is there a timer on my new microwave thanks Barry.
Each cooking mode displays the time countdown on the screen until the process is finished.
Is this microwave suitable for a tight spot, or does it need to be well ventilated. I do not want to damage the surrounding cabinetry from the vent (I assume there is one? Where is it?)
This microwave should not be placed in a cabinet, and should be placed on a benchtop as it needs adequate ventilation. The vent is on the top of the microwave.
