Good value for the price
I have the black version of this microwave, and I could have given this a five-star rating except for one issue: The part of my kitchen where I have room for the microwave is not particularly well lit, and the controls on the front -- white text on black background, and the font is not large -- are almost unreadable. I used to have a white microwave (black text on white background) in the same spot and had no difficulty. Not a major flaw, and it won't be a problem for most people, but someone with similar lighting issues might find it worth considering.

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.

This is not stainless steel

Ok! It said stainless steel. It is only on the front surface. The entire enclosure is black metal. If that's fine with you, then you should get it.

just what the chef ordered

This is PERFECT for a college student or anyone that has downsized to a smaller place. The microwave works perfectly and the timer feature was something I use everyday. Thanks!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

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.

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.
