    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.

    Quality Product

    This Microwave is plenty big enough for anything reasonable. The buttons are easy to understand and use. The power of the unit is ideal. The weight is light enough in case you were thinking of moving it again and again or to clean under. I would buy this product again.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    Beautiful unit

    My two former Panasonic microwaves lasted less then 2 years each, due to a door hinge malfunction. the Kenmore Elite item I ordered is very large, but I measured my space before placing my order. This unit has a door handle which I love and is a very powerful and quiet microwave. I hope this microwave lasts more than two years, as it is exactly what I was looking for.. The only drawback is the small writing on the buttons for for programming, but i will get used to the controls and all will be fine. Once again, this is one of the nicest units I have found with the power I need and want.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.

    No Problems so far

    We bought this to replace an older Whirlpool gold model that was almost identical and have had it now for about 2 weeks. We liked the door handle instead of the push button door opener. The door is a little noisy when you open and close it but it will be installed in a cabinet so maybe it will be quieter when the trim kit is installed, but I really doubt that is going to make much difference. The operation is fine. It heats well and seems to be a little quieter than our old one when it is running. I do have an issue with the cook time operation. If you want to select any time other than whole minutes between 1 and 6 minutes you have to press the 'cook time' button first, then you can enter your time directly. if you press any button inside the box (1 -6 ) it starts up instantly and will run for that many minutes. That would be fine if you always are going to cook in whole minutes between 1 and 6. Not a big deal but just an extra step that that we almost always have to use and the whole minutes instant cook is something that we seldom use. The dimensions of the new microwave are almost identical to the old one so installation of the microwave and trim kit should be easy. But I'm still waiting for the trim kit to come in after sears seems to have lost the first one we ordered and had to reorder it.

    I would recommend this product to a friend.
