    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.

    So far love this microwave

    I just got this microwave and so for love it! It is very large on the inside and can hold a big casserole dish! I like the handle to open it. My last microwave had a push style handle but this handle you just pull. Hopefully this one will last for many years.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Huge Interior and more

    I have owned this microwave for about a year now and have been very pleased with its operation. It has plenty of power and an extra large cooking space that would hold almost anything that you could throw at it. I have had no problems with the unit and it even survived a huge electrical power surge that hit our house when some power lines fell. If you are looking for a reliable microwave with plenty of space at a good price, then this one is for you.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Solid and powerful

    We purchased this microwave to replace our Panasonic that abruptly went out. So far, it's a great appliance and is very quiet. For the reviews that claim they wish they could set a time other than 30 seconds, please read the instructions. If you hit "cook time" right above the cancel button, you can set any time you wish. I'll update again after a few months usage.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    This is a very powerful microwave and gets the job done in a hurry.

    I bought this microwave as a replacement for a previous Kenmore Elite. It is very powerful and very quiet. The only two things that I am having difficulty with is the setting of the time and the darkness of the interior. I am used to the old version where all you had to do was push 30 for thirty seconds. This one requires that you push "cook time" first then push 30. Otherwise you will automatically get 3 minutes by pushing the number 3. Guess I have to break my old habits and learn something new. The darkness of the interior makes it a little hard to see what is cooking. My old one had a white interior and it made for easily seeing what was going on during the timing cycle. Other than that I am very happy with my purchase

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Works well, nice features

    We've had our microwave for 5 months now. We haven't had any problems with it. We especially like the sensor cooking, really good for cooking rice and baked potatoes.

    Seems to work well

    Have only been using for a couple of weeks. Sofar, so good. Only thing I don't care for is not being able to set anything under 30 seconds. Otherwise, works for me. The 5 beeps is a little excessive, but no big deal.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.
