I have never cooked with a convection oven before and was nervous about being able to use the feature, but it was super easy! The food comes out really good too... done on the outside and moist on the inside! And of course it microwaves as well ;)
Preheat only reaches about half the desired temperature which I found out after having several items undercooked. After a repair person found same results, she contacted an expert who said that this is a problem with this model and company is aware of it. There is currently no "FIX" for this problem! Was advised to set temp 50 to 75 degrees higher or more on cook for 30 min before using to cook and "hope for the best!". I had to buy an oven thermometer so I will know when it is heated sufficiently. When door is opened to check oven loses too much heat, adding to cook time. Muffins in a 6 muffin tin are over cooked in the end cups and under cooked in the 2 middle cups. The ones on the ends must be removed from the oven and center muffins cooked at least 10 minutes longer, providing that I did not take too much time opening the door and taking out the pan or the oven will need to heat up again. I had high hopes for this convention microwave oven but have been unimpressed with the quality. Everything cooked is on trial and error basis. Oven cannot be trusted to bake correctly or evenly.
This fancy-featured convection microwave did not perform well after only 21 months in service. It kept tripping my home circuit breaker around 50% of usages, and suddenly died.
I replaced my old microwave/convection oven which was stainless with my new Sears one which is white. It looks so much better with my white cabinets. Blends in and makes the cabinets look better.
I refused delivery because it could not be installed in current cabinetry. It was never in my home. The installers called CS and stated the facts and that I was cancelling the order. I received (after numerous calls) a refund for the installation service. As of today 7/13/18 I still have not been credited $534.99 for the microwave I have never seen. Definitely done doing business with Sears.
it is a beautiful addition to our newly remodeled kitchen.Just what we ere looking for and have always had good luck with Kenmore Products. Delivery was quick .Would recommend this product.
