So far I love it!
After researching many models, I recently purchased this item to replace my dying microwave. So far, operating as a microwave, it does everything I want it to. I have not tried the convection oven yet, but hope to soon. My main reason for purchasing this model was the stainless steel interior. I do wish the instruction manual was a little clearer on how to operate the convection oven vs. the microwave. I have never had a convection oven/microwave combo before, so it is all new to me. I am very happy with my purchase!

Bad Product
I bought one of these after my microwave broke really excited about the convection features, thinking it would be great to have a smaller oven, especially in the summer months here in Texas. Well with the first one I bought we tried to bake chicken in convection mode, and started to think something was up when it was taking over 2 hours to get it to a safe internal temperature. We were supposed to be cooking it at 350 per the oven display, but I used a probe thermometer to find out it was at around 220 the whole time. I raised the temp on the display to the highest setting to get the real temp to around 300 to finish cooking the chicken. The next day, I tried preheating the oven to 350 and when it signaled that it had reached that temp I put in the probe thermometer to see and again it was only at around 220. So, the temps are very inaccurate and the oven just doesn't get hot enough to be of real use. I returned this first one after calling Kenmore service, thinking it was possibly just a defective one after the phone call. But, the second one is worse...same issue with the temperature and it also makes a weird metal on metal sound when starting in convection mode. This product needs to be pulled and re-engineered. It's really damaged the brand for me...I can't see myself buying any Kenmore 'Elite' products given how shoddy this one is. I'll be returning the second one tomorrow, big waste of time.

Love it

I wanted something to bake and cook that didn't require heating up my big oven. This is it! I love that I can make meals for two and not waste the energy of heating up the big oven. It's easy to use and since it's on my counter, I don't have to bend over to pulls things out of the oven. I have also found out the my old microwave ( over 20 years old) was not as powerful as this one. I get hot water in half the time and I can use the recommended time on frozen veggies. It's making my life easier.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So Disappointed!!!

You must have 12" of clearance above this unit, however you don't find that out until you have purchased, brought it home, unpacked the unit and gotten to page 7 in the owners manual. The clearance info is not stated in any online info on the product or any info at the store. This means you can not install it in a microwave cabinet or even on a counter with overhead cabinets.

More than advertised but...

The box and documentation call this a microwave oven. It is a microwave, convection, combo oven with broiler. It is relatively easy to use and works very well. For me, it has ample capacity. With its capability, if you can't cook it in this oven, maybe it shouldn't be cooked. OK, some things are better in a frying pan. The down side is the documentation that comes with it. There could be better instructions so the owner can get the max out of this oven. I find it better than the instructions indicate. A call to customer assistance answered every question I had. I am considering buying another one for my getaway..

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Kenmore Elite microwave

This is truly an excellent microwave. It does everything you'd expect from a microwave plus it has a convection cooking feature. We cooked a chicken casserole using this feature and it turned out very very good. The speed of cooking was impressive to say the least. We are very pleased with our purchase. We love Kenmore products. Every Kenmore product we have ever purchase has been above average in quality and utility. We will always look at Sears first before we make any major or minor appliance purchases.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Nice Microwave

Great microwave but the convection takes to long and gets way too hot! I bought this because I like the stainless steel inside. I only use the microwave feature I would not recommend this item for the convection feature. Also, the directions really do not tell you how to use the convection feature which is a bummer. Overall, nice Microwave!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Wish I would have known it needed 12" of overhead clearance...

Never had a chance to use this microwave since I could not install it in my kitchen. It requires 12" of overhead clearance which eliminates being able to use it under the cabinets. Now I have to hassle with returning it. Bummer!
