    Very Nice Microwave Oven
    We go through microwave ovens about once every 4 years,(due to heavy usage) and this is the first 2.2 cu.ft. size we have purchased. (We usually purchase the 2.0 cu. ft .). We have had Panasonic (2), GE, Kenmore Elite and Kenmore units in the past. This is our second Kenmore Elite. This unit is quieter than the past ones, however, I wish that the time display was brighter. We purchased this unit on 4/14, and we have only had it for 5 days...too early to tell

    I rated this only average
    This microwave works great, it is big enough. How ever I am able to get the clock to work correctly. I set it for the correct time, then it changes no matter what I do.

    Very Dark Inside!!

    I had Kenmore Elite same size before and it's turn table broke a few days ago. I would not bother to repair it. It lasted for 6 years. It worked great. I bought this black one and it is too dark inside. I don't know what kind of genius changed the inside color. I can't see anything inside. I really miss my old one which inside was while and has clear view from outside. It works great other than the color problem.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Get your flashlight out!!!!

    It's Big and Quiet and that's the best two things I can say about this unit. Who ever came up with the idea of making the inside of a microwave Dark Gray in color should be Fired. The print on the control panel is also hard to read and too dark. Just because the color of the microwave is black doesn't mean Everything has to be black also.

    great product so far

    I just bought this a couple weeks ago. So far so good. I think it will last a long time. I think its a great microwave, it heats things up fast, can fit larger plates than the average dinner plate and you just need lots of counter space. But it is a very good microwave. I would much rather pay a bit more and have a good microwave than go to ******* pay only a tad less for junk.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.
