Kenmore Elite 1.8 cu. ft. Convection Microwave - Programmable With this Kenmore Elite convection microwave 8037, you can achieve convection oven results in a programmable microwave, even browning and crisping foods. The precision sensor ensures your food is thawed thoroughly based on weight, taking the guesswork out of auto-defrost. Innovative CombiCook technology helps to evenly cook the food inside and out. This over-the-range microwave also has special settings such as child lockout, popular recipes and clean functions to make life a bit easier. A Kenmore microwave that can cook this easily should be in every kitchen.

  • A 100-450 degree heating element and circulating fan turn your microwave into a convection oven that warms, bakes and roasts from the inside for great meals in minutes.
  • Even, precise and fast, Diamondback Evenness™ technology uses a diamond-patterned back wall to scatter microwaves throughout the oven to cook and defrost without any cold spots.
  • The Evenness Plate™ located below the glass turntable helps distribute microwave energy for more even cooking and defrosting from the bottom up.
  • The multi-stage cooking option lets you get a meal from your freezer to your table in minutes by automatically defrosting, heating and keeping it ready to eat with warm and hold.
  • Precision Sensor technology uses smart programming to take the guesswork out of setting the microwave, ensuring you get the power to heat meals thoroughly without overcooking.

Hope it last

I gave it a 4 because the material has cheap feel to it My comments are just my personal views. As with many other Appliances these days you can only hope it last. My main suggestion will be read the instructions carefully few times before you start. 1. Reason I selected this model is of the features, 400CFM rating, Convection, counter top space saver. 2. It took me almost 8 hrs to hang this since I had to change my cabinet to accommodate. 3. I wish the manufacture provided the template on a firm paper or on a cardboard. Paper template can throw off holes alignment. I had to drill around few times. 4. On the wall paper template it says to trim the top don?t know why make sure you do that ? 6. Use team lift and have a person helping you to hang it or get a back sore like I did. 5. Always measure your wall/microwave back area to make sure you are cutting the vent at the correct location and the bracket is mounted at the right location matching up the slots on the bottom of the machine. I prayed this microwave to last until ***** returns.

Very Disappointed with Elite

I purchased a Kenmore Elite Over the Range Microwave/Convection in April 2012. I am very disappointed with the performance of this product designed by Sears and manufactured by LG. After only three years the product has to be replaced because it cannot be repaired. The magnetron went out. The technician ordered and replaced the part only to find other issues. The door is broken and cannot be replaced. I purchased all Kenmore Elite products in my kitchen and I have had problems with all four products within a three year period.

Top Notch Appliance

I have spent many hours across many sites and this product is close to what we needed to replace. The previous Kenmore was over 15 years old. My only additional want was Almond (bisque) color and Ultra wave but for the price this fare exceeded our needs. We have had it for one month and there are no flaws. It is easy to clean. Sensors have been accurate and food is very pleasing when heated by this Kenmore Elite. Thank You Sears and pray you grow moving forward as your wonderful history - Quality and caring.
