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...
Purchased in August 2020.
Questions & Answers
My current microwave is housed in a for purpose space above my oven and there is a cupboard above it. If I removed the base and shelving in the cupboard, would it be safe to house the crisp and grill microwave in the same space?
This microwave is not recommended to be placed in a cabinet or near an oven, due to ventilation requirements. For detailed instructions regarding the placement of this microwave, please see the user manual - available on the Whirlpool website. https://whirlpool.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/MWC25-GB-AU-IFU_W11225335.pdf
Mine is inside a cabinet space with 10 cm above and 4 cm either side
Thanks. A previous post mentioned that they are for benchtops and a required 30cm space above the unit. My old microwave doesn’t have this but then it did die- from the humidity or old age I’m not sure lol.
I have just purchased my whirlpool 25L crisp & grill microwave and after it has cooked an item it says on the screen end but it does not stop automatically like other microwaves at the end of the cooking process. Just wondering is this normal for this microwave or is it faulty. ?
The microwave continues to turn after the cycle has ended to ensure that the food is evenly cooked with the residual heat inside the cavity. It stops once you open the door.
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.
