Product Description

Kenmore — trusted in the homes of more than 100 million Americans.

The 1.5 cu. ft. Kenmore countertop microwave 75153 features fan convection cooking, which combines with microwave energy to circulate heated air evenly throughout the oven, browning food and shortening cooking time. This microwave can cook with convection alone, microwaves alone, or a combination of both.

The stainless-steel Kenmore 7515 countertop microwave has 1000 watts of cooking power and 10 power levels ranging from from 100°F to 400°F. Its attractive stainless-steel interior is easy to clean.

  • The Kenmore 75153 countertop microwave has 1.5 cu. ft. capacity
  • With 1000 watts and 10 power levels, this Kenmore microwave cooks and reheat quickly
  • The stainless-steel interior is easy to clean.
  • Sensor reheat takes the guesswork out of warming leftovers
  • Choose Auto Defrost to let the microwave determine the defrost time, or use Time Defrost to select the time
  • The electronic control's blue LED display makes it easy to see the numbers when you set cook times and power levels
  • Use multi-stage cooking to defrost and cook without interruption
  • 1-touch setting adds cooking time in 30-second increments
  • This Kenmore microwave has a kitchen timer and a child lockout function

The optional 30” stainless steel trim kit (item 02024303000) is available to give this countertop microwave oven a built-in look when installed in a wall or cabinet.

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.

Do not buy this unit! This is our second time to replace this model! It will die just after your one year warranty is up.

Nice looking, but......

If there would have been one on display we would not have bought it. It looks nice and we assume it works nice, but there are no instruction with it that actually show you how to cook with the product. The box shows a rectangular pan in the oven, but it has a turntable in it that runs in both microwave and convection oven mode. It comes with a rack for convection oven cooking, but its small and designed to sit on the turntable so you can not put anything large in the oven. Now its very possible we are not using it correctly but with out practical cooking instructions its not of much value. If you can use it in convection mode without the turntable it should have included a full width rack and instructions that said you could leave the turntable out. Include a cook book and more information on cooking in convection mode and it might be a great product. As it is now we have a very expensive microwave oven.

Microwave

I really like my new oven. It is really easy to use. My grandkids really like it to. It cleans up so well if something spills in it. The instructions on how to use all the parts are easy to read. I think it was a good purchase.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Loved it - but way too big!

Exactly what I wanted - perfect features and great price - but, when we brought it home it was much larger than our current (Sears, 1997) Microwave, so, we had to return it! boo,,,hoo.....

I would recommend this product to a friend.
