The microwave works well and is easy to read. Many of them are not. It has a lot of handy quick start features. It is listed as stainless steel, but the box sides and top are black. That was a surprise, but I kept it anyway.
A few months after purchasing this microwave, I came home to find out that it had turned itself on --said it was 'sensing.' I exchanged it thinking mine was malfunctioning. However after a few months the new one did the same things. It came on in the middle of the night all by itself. This is a fire hazard. Do not purchase this microwave.
Good product, Heats very well. Seems smaller than advertised.
this microwave is very nice..works great..i have had kenmore products before..the microwave that i replaced for this one was 11 yrs old never gave me any problems..hopefully this new one will last just as long...i also have kenmore washer that is 18 yrs old and is still working ...
I bought this microwave only, only going by two pictures and specs. The front picture showed a good amount of black and some stainless steel. The other picture was of the microwave turned clockwise about 30 degrees and was heavily lit, making it look grayish, so it didn't come across to me as being solid black on both sides and the top. The microwave that this one replaced was also stainless steel, with the whole outside cabinet being stainless steel, which is what I was expecting of this one. The inside is large, but the turntable at only about 12 inches, doesn't take advantage of the space. Lastly, it's a bit louder than my old Kenmore microwave, which was also not anticipated.
