Microwave Buy
I have had this microwave for only a week and have not tried all of the features. It is a nice size, looks good and so far functions on reheating well. I only gave it 4 stars because I have used it very little. What I don't like is the 5 loud beeps when it is finished. Even if you open the door you still must listen to all of the beeps.

Hot outside cold inside
Our old microwave would just about boil over oatmeal in1 min 45 sec. This one took 3 times using 2 min each time and it still wasn't cooked. The outside of the microwave was to hot to hold your hand on it. I will not get another one.

Go to the Sears store.

I am not thrilled with this microwave. It is difficult to see my food cook. It is not clear.That is why the one star rating. I should have looked this over at the store first. The price may have been the same as online.

Perfect

I've had this microwave for a week and it is perfect. The size is great and the stainless is as it should be. I love the 30 second start button.

Slow and low, not 1100 watts cooking

Our 8 yr old Kenmore microwave died so we went to Sears to get a replacement. The white or black 2.2 cu. ft. microwave we were after was not in stock, only the very expensive stainless steel so we asked what white microwaves did they have. The sales associate brought out the white 1.6 cu. ft 1100 watt microwave in the box and we purchased it. With the type of cooking I do, I use two microwaves at the same time. The built in 1100 watt Whirlpool model and now the 1100 watt Kenmore model. In 30 seconds I can have 1/2 stick of butter completely melted in the whirlpool while the same 1/2 stick of butter takes almost 2 minutes. I went back to the manual to verify the 1100 watts, and the manual states that it is, but that's the wimpiest 1100 watts I've ever experience. Even f I didn't have another brand to compare the new model to I still would believe that the Kenmore 1.6 cu. ft. microwave was a wimp. What the unit does have: Preset cooking times for 1-6 minutes. The start and stop buttons on the correct side finally (the last Kenmore had them opposite and It was annoying enough that I didn't mind that the unit operated while the door was open so it had to be replaced after only 8 years) There are 6 quick touch presets 3 auto menu buttons popcorn is here instead of the preset above. Easy to set clock Power level and cook time. Kitchen Timer I verified that the PL10 which is 100% power was activated and yet my 14 yr old Whirlpool 1.1 cu. ft. microwave cooks rings around this new but disappointing paperweight.

1.6, well maybe

I replaced my dead 10 yr old Kenmore 1.2 c/f microwave with this one, but it is really no bigger than my old one. The old one had the same size turntable -- the measurement that really counts. But because the space in the back corners is pretty much useless -- again think about the turntable -- Kenmore shaped the metal in the back of the old 1.2 into a cylindrical shape. Now 10 yrs later they made made the whole interior rectangular, creating and extra 0.4 c/f. The new one is quieter, cooks just slightly faster -- microwaves do degrade over time -- and looks more modern. My only complaint, other than the size inflation, is that the typeface on the display panel could have been made larger. My eyes are getting older and so distinguishing "popcorn" from "potato" is getting tougher.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
