Whirlpool MAX38/SL Freestanding Microwave - Silver

Make a statement with Whirlpool. The 700W MAX35/SL freestanding microwave from Whirlpool not only offers maximum impact with its stylish black and silver finish, it’s got loads of handy features too. The rounded back means it can be placed in corners, perfect if you’re lacking counter space. This microwave is ideal for a one person household or for student homes with its 13 litre capacity. The 280mm turntable is big enough for most standard sized dinner plates so you can still reheat your dinner. You also get pre-programmed settings for vegetables, fish and potatoes. The 3D heat distribution system means your food will be cooked evenly and thoroughly throughout, making life easier and you a whole lot safer!

Product Reviews

"Great microwave for the size"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, good inner dimensions

Cons: none

"Very happy with this. It is a Which Best Buy and we haven't been disappointed. We bought it because it has a larger turntable (28cms) than any of the other small microwaves we could find. We wanted something that would not take up too much space on the worktop, but found that other small models would not take a dinner plate. This fits very neatly in the corner. I have seen other reviews criticising the instructions and ease of use, but we have found the quick reference user guide is perfectly adequate. The controls are perhaps not as immediately obvious as some other makes, but it means it has a very neat appearance, and it is simple to use once you know what each button does. It doesn't come with any cooking times for common foods, which some people might find a bit irritating, though if you've used a microwave before it's not a big issue. There are no pre-set cooking programmes, but you can store some of your own. Again, for us it wasn't a problem as we didn't use the ones on our previous microwave anyway. The jet defrost works really well - fast and doesn't part-cook the food. We also like it for combination cooking (e.g. jacket potatoes). We haven't tried the crisp function yet. For the size it has a good grill and it does everything we want it to, without having any complicated extras that we didn't want. If like us you mainly use your microwave for things like heating plates of food, defrosting, baked potatoes, ready meals, porridge and heating things through, I would recommend it."

"Lovely looking machine"

Pros: Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: Complicated, poor instruction details

"I bought this microwave as I loved the rounded back. It sits in the corner beautifully. Looks like a portable telly! Quite complex to use and, so far, I have only mastered the basics. That is probably my fault as I haven't really felt the need to learn how to grill or crisp yet. The details that come with the microwave are very very basic and Whirlpool should think about providing more detailed information."

"Stylish and efficient"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good

Cons: none

"A very attractive and well thought out piece of equipment. Somebody has actually designed this rather than just produced another clone. Easy to clean and simple to operate once you have understood the instructions which make it sound far more complicated than it is . Fits perfectly into a corner and takes up far less space than any other micro' of a similar capacity.

The cooking is even, the browning is good and the crisp function cooks a great pizza.

It's everything you would hope it would be except for one slight irritation.

When cooking is finished the turntable continues to rotate and the light stays on. If you are busy doing other things and dont hear the finish buzzer you can think it is still cooking. Just a minor niggle that doesn't detract from the pleasure of using such a quality piece of equipment."

"Takes up less worktop space than conventional shaped microwaves, does everything I need it to do. It looks like a retro TV, while looking neat & inobtrusive and I found the instructions easy to follow."

"Designed for the space"

Pros: Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good

Cons: none

"Picked this microwave as it looked as though it was going to save a lot of space as we needed it in a corner. Brilliant, it’s the same internal size as our previous model, but now takes up half the space. Admittedly it’s not quite as fast as the 850w we had before, but only by seconds and the Fast Defrost is much quicker. All in all worth the money."
