Product Description

Product Description

Innovative Design

rounded back
Rounded Back to Save on Worktop Space

The Whirlpool Max Microwave range with its statement rounded back, slots comfortably into tight corners and so can be suited for those with limited kitchen workspace or where space is a premium. Its shape is designed to fit around its large 28cm turntable, so it may appear smaller than a conventional microwave but there is no compromise on size when it comes to cooking.

Variety of colours
Stylish and Easy to Clean

The Max 38 microwave is designed with a dark glass flat screen door and an integrated handle with touch-screen controls. The aim of this design is to make the Max 38 both stylish and easy to clean and with a choice of a variety of different colours, the user can personalise their microwave to suite their kitchen.

Achieve Oven-like Results

3D Technology
Conventional Microwave Distribution / Whirlpool 3D Microwave Distribution
Crisp and Browned Food

Featuring a crisping plate, the Max 38 allows the user to crisp and brown food, allowing for oven-like results. Food such as pizza, when cooked in a conventional microwave will become soggy, whereas in the Max 38, the crisp function will give it a crisp base and a browned top. The crisp plate heats up to 210°C heating the base of your food, whilst the grill at the top of the microwave browns from above.

3D Microwave Distribution Cooking
touch screen

The Max 38 Microwave range comes fitted with Whirlpool’s 3D distribution technology which means that the food can be cooked, steamed and defrosted evenly for safer and faster results. It also means the microwave is more efficient with the power that it is using.

Quick Start and Defrost

Microwave cooking is designed to be quick, so the Max 38 Microwave Range has Jet options for speedy results. One touch of the Jet Start button will trigger the Microwave to heat food for 30 seconds at full power (700W). The Jet Defrost option can defrosts food seven times faster than a conventional microwave heating system and all that is required is to set the weight of the food.

Cooking with Convenience

Memo Function

The Max 38 Microwave has a memo function which allows the user to store 3 of the most used times and power levels. These can then be started at the push of a button, meaning that time can be saved and the food preparation can be more efficient.

"Wavelicious" Recipes

The user can find recipes to complement the steam Max 38 Microwave on Whirlpool’s recipe mobile application “Wavelicious”.


The Max 38 Microwave comes with a ferrite crisp plate and crisp-plate handle. The Max 38 also has an ‘end of cooking’ buzzer, interior cavity light, child lock, and a 24-hour digital clock display.

Colour Name:Silver
When my wife saw this MAX 38 Crisp microwave she was intrigued my to my disapointment. I thought oh no another peice of kitchen equipment that we do not need as we already had a microwave. Still as us men do to keep our loved ones happy, I purchased one. From the time of purchase to the time of this new MAX 38 arriving wasa shorter period than waiting for a letter to arrive. It was packed so well my wife had to wait for me to come home, it was so tightly packed that I had to be careful how I took the box to peices. Enough of that this is supposed to be a reveiw of the product the "MAX 38 CRISP" the only thing missing was the baby bottle warmer, hey we're retired way past having another family and our grandchildren are past the bottle stage.

The MAX 38 CRISP turned out to be an all-in-one cooker - a grill - obviously a microwave - a combination cooker - and it turns out crispest pizzas you'll ever find - another thing have you ever tried to cook a pie in the microwave oven? Yes they fall flat, not with the MAX 38 CRISP...Click on this link and see for yourself Whirlpool Max 38 Crisp Microwave the one thing we couldn't find was a directions leaflet. Ah I said to my darling wife lets go to the Whirlpool website and see what we can find. Well the MAX 38 CRISP is so new that they haven't yet got the directions for this model online but, isn't there always a 'but' there was a similar model but it was called a "MAX 28 CRISP" so I downloaded the instructions for this model and made up a pamphlet from this. Obviously I had to set up the page so it printed thats easy though all I had to change was the paper size.

5.0 out of 5 stars English Breakfast, Chicken Pie and Chips 11 Nov 2012
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
This microwave is more compact but taller than most standard microwaves. I was sceptical about the crisp function but have been surprised to find that it works perfectly. Today I cooked 2 sausages (took 6 and a half mins) and 2 slices of bacon (about 4 mins 45) - the sausages were beautifully cooked and nicely browned, the bacon was crisp without being overcooked or charred and my egg took 1 min 15 secs.

I was more surprised to find that oven chips cooked well in it too, I used marks and spencers fresh (rather than frozen) crinkle cut chips and 3 mins cooking on each side they were perfect, I also had an individual chicken pie and I cooked it for 10 mins, piping hot inside and lightly browned crispy shortcrust pastry.

If you are looking for recipe ideas - there are some recipies on you tube if you search for "max up my cooking". It's also important to read the quick reference guide to understand how the microwave, grill and combi functions work; this will ensure you select the correct function and more importantly to let the crisp plate cool before washing and avoid touching the roof of the oven after the grill has been used. Both get very hot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Microwave 19 May 2012
Colour Name:Silver|Verified Purchase
Having had a new kitchen I needed a smaller microwave to match in with the new style.The first one that was delivered was damaged, but no problem.Amazon arranged for a collection and sent a replacement in quick time.This microwave looks small but takes a size 28cm plate.Fits into corners or small areas. The crisp feature is very good. Yummy bacon butties with hardly any cleaning. No need to use the big grill in the oven with lots of cleaning to do.Down side not much of a leaflet for instructions, but is very easy to work out how to use it.This IS a 700w power, the jet start button is the 700w.The touch panal is easy to use, just make sure it is turned off at the wall before you wipe it as you can start it going by accident. Everyone mentions how good it looks.,

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love it! 6 Mar 2013
By MrsM
Colour Name:Pink|Verified Purchase
I have only had this microwave for about a week and so far I love it! I had my eye on this for months and months but put off buying it due to the price and the reviews weren't great. I needn't have worried, it replaced my existing 700w microwave with no problem. I admit I chose it mostly because of the way it looked (conventional look microwave stick out in my pretty country kitchen like a sore thumb)....and although my husband thinks this looks like a spaceship/TV, the shape and colour of it means it fits in a corner quite seamlessly. Yes, it is a large spend for a microwave, but I expect it to last. I have so far only testing the Grill Combo to cook gammon and was very impressed, ideal if you don't want to switch on your oven for a smaller meal. The pink colour is not overwhelming (again my husband sighed when I announced we were getting a pink microwave) but even he admits that it doesn't look too bad or 'girly'! I wish I had got this sooner, and have nothing but good things to say about it. One of its strongest points is that it fits neatly in the corner of my work surface and has a wide opening door.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as expected 4 Dec 2013
Colour Name:Black|Verified Purchase
The best thing about this Whirlpool microwave is the way it tucks into a corner and frees up so much space on your worktop. It looks good too. Nice chunky door, easy to open. I have had to stand the oven on a piece of non slip material underneath as it did tend to slip on the worktop when trying to open the door. I was doubtful about the interior space as it looked so small but it accommodates our large dinner plates, measuring jugs and large casserole dish so that fits the bill. I've not found the controls too confusing, picked them up quite easily with the albeit basic instructions. It's nice and quiet in use and even the time finished beep is good. Loud enough to hear but not that loud you jump out of your skin. I used the crisping plate/ function this evening for a pizza. 6 mins from frozen and cooked to a very acceptable level. Maybe not as crisp in the centre as in a conventional oven but nicely browned on top and bubbly cheese! I would have given this the full 5 stars but for one gripe...I wish it was a 1000watt like my previous, but to be honest we use our microwave mostly for reheats, jackets, warming plates so it really is sufficient.
