Not as powerful as I would have liked and broke down after 1.5 years

To be honest after using it for 18 months I feel as though it's crisping and other features were not that great - certainly not in comparison with the price charged. It was easy to burn some things because the grill part heated up so well!

It also lacked grunt - I shouldn't complain it's an 800w microwave I just assumed the inverter technology would make up for that but thats on me.

I purchased from Appliances Online and Arisit (the wholesale supplier) managed the refund process effectively.

I went with a Kmart $125 replacement and am much happier with it's performance. Show details

Great innovative product!

This is a well-built product with an innovate option of crisp and grill. The user-interface is intuitive and using the microwave and its functions is simple. It has a sleek, modern look and given the functionality it is available at a great price-point. The oven heats food evenly and there is plenty of room for a full dinner plate. It's also not overly-loud like some microwaves. Show details

This is perfect!

The Crisp and Grill Microwave is perfect for cooking, without heating up the whole kitchen! And takes a fraction of the time compared to an oven. The microwave doesn’t stop when the timer ends, but keeps rotating and warming the food. A machine that microwaves, crisps and grills is genius! It also has a cleaning setting which is great. Thank you Whirpool for this little beauty!

Comparing the old with the new

I had a Whirlpool crisp grill microwave for many years and it was absolutely fabulous. However, I replaced the old one with the MWC25BK model and unfortunately it is no where near as good. It takes longer to heat food and the crisp function doesn't crisp as well and takes longer. It is really disappointing as I use it a lot and I wish I hadn't bought it now. I never thought I would ever say that. I also preferred the function controls on the old one.

Can't live without it!

With it's easy to use Chef Menu, Quartz Grill and 3D Microwave Distribution system, I was and am pleasantly surprised how good this microwave is! Also looks great on my kitchen bench top! We use regularly on weekends to do the party pies and sausage rolls for the football when we have guests and the food is evenly cooked with great results. Can't recommend this unit enough! Show details

Great products

I would like to know does a light come on when cooking to make sure nothing is over cooking. Just purchased one and mine doesn’t. My daughter has the whirlpool different model and the light is nice and bright so I don’t boil the milk over.. Show details

Terrific purchase

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 Show details

How do you cook a steak in the crisp n grill? Mine turned out overcooked and not browned in the crisp plate

Reg & Davina C.
Reg & Davina C. · 25L Crisp & Grill Microwave

Bought the Supreme Chef Dual crisp, tried to grill cheese, the element of the grill does not turn red. Is this correct or faulty? The oven was hot and cheese started to melt, however it took 10 min. It was an open sandwich with grated cheese

Hi Reg & Davina, This is not a fault. Very rarely will the element glow as they cycle so they will turn on and off constantly to maintain the temperature.

Kind Regards,

Hello,

Ours glows red in less than 30secs, did you use the high wire grill rack when using the grill function?

cheers

Hi Reg & Davina, Yes the high-wire grill rack will need to be used with the grill function

I bought a MWC25 last week. In the Quick Reference Guide for that model there are 10 icons illustrated as being visible in the display window. These are numbered 13 to 22.
On my microwave none of these icons are visible even when the machine is activated.
Could you please inform me how to rectify this problem? Margie

Whirlpool   DM   

Hi Margaret, The icon's should display when you select the function your wanting to use. Can you please confirm if they are still not showing once you have selected a function?

Kind Regards,
