Digital Easy to set Will be anxious to see if my light bill goes up. Haven't had a chance to see how efficient it will be. September 27, 2014
Reasonable price and easy to install I installed the unit myself. Installation was easy and when I put water in the tank and put the power on, did not take long to get hot water. So far it is working fine after being on line for about one week. September 21, 2014

nice looking, great features easy to adjust heat setting, like the vacation mode setting September 8, 2014
This product has easy features to control the temperature and I like that it can be set for vacation mode and an energy efficient setting. This product was easy to use and I like that it has an energy efficient setting plus a vacation setting and easy to use for setting the temperature. Just installed but being that it is a Whirlpool brand and made in the USA I believe it will be very reliable. My kitchen appliances are all Whirlpool as well as my washer and dryer. I've always had good experiences with Whirlpool brands. September 2, 2014
