Product Overview

Make a statement with Whirlpool. The 700 Watt 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!

    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."

    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."

    great idea, but not as compact as it should be!

    Pros:Value for money, Good build quality, looks good

    "Have not switched it on yet but would say that it's not as small as you might think. The external dimensions are much taller and only slightly narrower than our old microwave, but the internal dimensions are tiny. It has very thick walls! We thought 17cm would be tall enough for our bottle steriliser, but it turny out that 2cm of that is used for the turntable, so we end up having to keep our old one at least for the next year. Still, the build quality on the new one is really good, it looks absolutely unique, and providing it works ok we would definitely recommend. We just think it could be slimmer!"

    great microwave

    Pros:Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, Quiet, looks good, good space saver, fair price for such good quality.

    Cons:poor quality, Complicated, Expensive, Noisy, none

    "I've had this microwave for three weeks now. I love it, it does everything that it says on the tin. Easy to use, just needs a wee bit of practice. It looks great and does not take up much space, sits nicely in a corner of the worktop. Crisps, grills and heats well. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a stylish, yet practical microwave."
