    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.

    Really great microwave

    I bought this microwave about eight months ago and I'm really loving it. It's humongous inside and is super easy to clean. The feature that I absolutely adore that other microwaves don't have is the "soften" feature. You can perfectly soften 1-3 sticks of butter or a pack of cream cheese. No more hard butter on toast! I bake cakes and cookies several times a week and I hate waiting for butter to soften. But this Kenmore microwave does it perfectly. No more half melted/half hard sticks. I couldn't live without this feature! I also like the reminder beeps after the microwave is finished. I can't tell you how many times I forget my food in the microwave. It's nice to have a little reminder. I also ordered the optional trim kit and it works perfectly in the "built-in" space where our old microwave went. My only quibble with this microwave (and most microwaves it seems) is having to press the "time cook" button before I enter a time. Usually when my family uses the microwave it's for short increments (less than 30 seconds). It's incredibly annoying to have to press that "time cook" button first. We rarely use the preset times. Who microwaves something for five minutes? I think a 15 second, 30 second and 45 second presets would be a lot handier. Or how about no presets at all? I really preferred the days when you just pressed 7 and it meant 7 seconds (the perfect amount of time for heating up a donut, by the way) instead of 7 minutes. It seems that having to press "time cook" is getting more common in every brand of microwave and I find that really annoying. Other than that I really like this microwave and I would highly recommend it. I bought the product protection which means this microwave will probably never break!

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Great so far

    Needed a microwave with a handle and this one is great so far. It's also very roomy. Just one thing, when you use it, it shows a vapor spot in the middle of the glass door.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.
