The oven stopped working in less than a year

The oven was good while it worked. Unfortunately, microwave function stopped working and I still haven't been able to fix it under warranty after 4 months of going back and forward. Considering their service agent knew what was wrong without visiting, I would think it's something that happens all the time.
Don't buy Whirlpool products, their warranty service is terrible. Show details

Mine is over 10 years old going great!

First I need to say, I have a previous model which has been upgraded I don't know how many times. Mine is over ten years old and like the title says, it is still going just like new. It's a great, great machine. We use it predominantly to microwave and the touch controls offer precision. Occasionally, when I need extra oven space though, the convection feature of this machine is SO handy to have in the kitchen. There's nothing more to say really because it does what it's supposed to do and has done it superbly for a long time now. I'm extremely happy with this purchase. Show details

Excellent for crisping and reheating meals

This oven is solid and works effectively to reheat meals and to crisp leftovers. Works quickly and the crisping plate is fantastic. Saves me booting up the wall oven for small quantities.  Show details

Good Microwave

There a lot of functions to work through but the basic microwave and oven work a treat.

The microwave itself is very sturdy and heavier and better built compared to the other microwave/oven combos out there. Show details

Fabulous Microwave

This microwave is unbelievable. Cooks my roast dinners in half an hour.... delicious. Steamer is super also and cooks vegetables perfectly. Other features like fan forced oven, grill/microwave work beautifully.
Best Crisp and Grill on the market.

Takes some getting used to

So far does a great job of cooking food when you can work out the appropriate settings for what you are cooking, but this is not always obvious so some things can take a bit of trial and error. Still learning the ropes of this machine as I go. Food is cooked evenly, and I am loving the ease of the sensor function!
I do wish companies would use straightforward language to talk about product features instead of fanciful gibberish like “6th sense” though!

This is one of the Magic wave not just Microwave in the Market

The best part of this Microwave is most of the popular dishes menu is pre fed, all you have to do is follow the instruction and result is very impressive. This is in true sense a House master Chef who can look after most of daily food preparation. My wife is very happy and so i am. Highly recommended Show details

Am struggling to adapt to this way of cooking - takes time to adjust my thinking

I have not used a convection oven before and am finding it confusing until worked out. I would have appreciated being able to go to a demonstration - but am sorting it out - sometimes with trepidation.
When I sort out a recipe the results are good. Am looking forward to receiving your cook book.
all in all a great product. Show details

Love it!!!

Once you have had one you will never go back. I love the expanded menu, such as the chef menu, it really works. The food stays fresh, just like a normal oven, especially using the crisp plate. This is NOT a normal microwave! Love it!!! Thank you Whirlpool. Show details

Hi Jill, The JT479IX is a convection microwave not an air fryer. It has a 31L capacity and for pricing depending where you are located please visit your local Harvey Norman or Bing Lee Store.

Kind Regards,
