    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.

    Great microwave

    Great microwave. Works about twice as good as an approx 10 year old one. Have plenty of room on a counter for it b/c it's BIG!

    Very pleased !

    we bought this unit to replace our old one. We wanted a larger one,and this certainly fits the bill! It is large enough to use a 9"x13" casserole dish,and performs great ! The pre-set buttons make it easy to use,and the programmable cooking times/uses,are fantastic ! For the short time we have had it,we love it ! It is easy to clean,and very quiet , during use .

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    great microwave especially with the sale price

    This is one of the biggest microwaves 2.2 cubic feet. I previously had a Panasonic same size but it had a button to open the door. After only a year and a half the button does not work anymore. I decided to buy this Kenmore because it has a handle for the door not a button and I have been very pleased with it.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Quiet and Subdued Lighting

    This microwave has been a pleasant surprise. Large capacity allows larger casserole dishes, very quiet you can barely hear it at all. Lighting is very subdued, when the lights are off the clock's soft lighting does not create a bright obnoxious glow

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Very good except for interior too dark to see what is happening

    I really am very pleased with almost everything about this microwave EXCEPT for the fact that you can't see how something is being heated in it! Did the interior have to be a dark color? Why is the light so puny? Can a brighter bulb be installed? I will contact Customer Service and/or Parts to see if a brighter bulb can be installed. If not, I will be very disappointed. My previous microwave was old but it had a white interior and a much brighter bulb.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Great microwave

    I bought this Kenmore microwave to replace a Sharp that I had for years. Very well made & easy to use with a key pad that is very self explanatory. Quiet & cooks/ reheats quickly & evenly. The inside is also a darker color so you can't see the splashes. Highly recommend this microwave. However I had to buy online at the Sears website & do store pick up because it was $50 cheaper than in store. Check this out before you buy.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.
