Heat Up Family Meals
This 1.6 cu. ft. Kenmore microwave has enough cooking capacity to take on family-sized frozen entrees and leftovers, perfect for heating up a good, healthy meal without needing to babysit the stove.
Powerful, Even Cooking
The 1,000 watt cooking power delivers even heating and cooking, no matter if you’re defrosting, cooking or re-heating. 10 power-level settings gives you more cooking control so your food comes out hot and delicious each time, no frozen centers.
Easy to Use Controls
Quick Touch buttons give you easy access to a wide selection of preprogrammed settings, like Popcorn, Melt/Soften and Potato. One touch controls let you automatically cook for 1-, 2- or 3-minute cycles so you can toss in a meal or leftovers with less fuss.
Sensor Cooking and Sensor Reheating take the guesswork
This microwave was simple to install. All the features anyone needs and then some. I especially like that there are a variety of instructions labeled on the inside so you don't have to refer to the manual to use a variety of settings (auto reheat, auto defrost, auto cook and different pre-sets). I read some reviews that weren't happy that the window had a white screen. At first, I thought that might be a problem but you can still see food so it poses no problem. Would buy again. I use the microwave mostly for reheating, defrosting or melting. Read the manual and get acquainted with some of the "auto" features and pre-sets. I'm really liking the "auto defrost" feature which changes power levels during cooking and allows for a dish to be defrosted thoroughly -- not leaving a frozen center.
It beeps so obnoxiously at the end, I want to scream! "Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep, beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep, beeeeeeeeeeeeep," and then repeat, repeat, repeat. It doesn't stop. Are you kidding me? I'm multitask queen. I have three kids. The phone rings sometimes. Sometimes someone comes to the door. Sometimes I have to use the bathroom. I sometimes can't run to the microwave immediately. So shut up already! I know it's done! It can sit! It's not going to burn! It can sit a minute! And the recipes often requires the food to sit for a few minutes. And I can SEE that it's done. So stop "beeeeeeeeeeeeeeping" over and over again. If you have ears, I recommend you NOT buy this microwave. Who designed this thing? I paid $124.99 on Black Friday and would have rather spent $300 for a reasonable beep; a soft gentle signal like microwaves past. No longer loyal to Kenmore and Sears. It's been pulling teeth to get this nightmare of a microwave exchanged. And that's a different story.
We wanted a Kenmore to replace our old unit that failed after 16 years. Big reason was that we thought it would be almost "drop in." Not quite right. The old unit had a much more sturdy wall bracket. The new one is pretty basic. Fingers crossed here.
The new keypad is more complicated and has more options to do things that are already easy to do. From what we were able to see while shopping around, this is the way things are going: complication to make things easier.
Bur all in all, after a week, the unit is still attached to the wall and it works. WE wanted both of those.
I was able to purchase the perfect microwave for our kitchen,
and at a very reasonable price I received great service from the sales associate !
A great experience over-all
This microwave only heated up once and didn’t heat up anymore.
