Very quiet operation and love the extra large capacity. Heats the food quickly compared to other microwaves I used and had to discard. The black and stainless steel are a perfect match for my kitchen.

Our last microwave was the standard under the cabinet model. It cooked well, and was big and ugly. This one is big and pretty. It is mounted in the wall and with the trim kit looks like a custom model. It is cavernous, much bigger than our last one. It cooks fast, is quiet, not much more to ask far. The only negative is that the LED lights are blue, our other appliances have green LEDs. I assume the difference between Kenmore and Kenmore Elite. The green has a much better viewing angle and distance viewing by the way.

It's big...I mean big. takes up a lot of counterspace, so be warned. We had enough space to accomodate, but if you're iffy, go smaller. Having said that, we really like it. It's relatively quiet and does a really good job with the sensor heating. It also looks really slick and matches other stainless appliances nicely. There's no obvious custom look or branding that makes it immediately stand out as a different brand of appliance (we have a combination of different stainless brands in the kitchen). Would buy again.
finding a countertop microwave that would replace one I had that stopped working wasn't easy. Kenmore had the closest match for what I was looking for. It was stainless to match my other appliances, had a handle rather than a push button which was something I was looking for. It also was big enough at 2.2 cubic feet to handle a 9/13 baking pan which I frequently use when cooking food in the microwave. It cooks evenly and quickly and looks nice in my kitchen.
it is a great looking microwave lots of room. I just dont think it has the power it should have. But we are still trying to figure it out so maybe it is our fault im not sure overall it is a good product
Love this microwave! I've had it for about one month now. I wanted something large enough to warm up my casserole dishes for parties. This one is easy to use, looks great, and is much quieter than my old one. Plus, the price was right, under $200!
We bought this microwave after remodeling our kitchen. Our new appliances are stainless steel. We had a white, 10 year old Kenmore that was working perfectly fine; we just wanted it to match our new appliances. So, we donated our old Kenmore to charity and bought this one when it was on sale for 149.99. We absolutely love it! It's absolutely beautiful to start. It has this cool Knightrider thing going on when it's in use, with the blue running lights. We love the way it cooks so evenly. Love the 1-touch feature and that you can also still set a custom cook time. Our old Kenmore had a handle, so I love the fact that this model has one as well. The only negative is it has 5 long beeps at the end of the cycle. I could swear our old microwave had 4 beeps. By that 5th beep, you're like, "...OK! Shut up already!" Otherwise, it's big, beautiful and just looks awesome on our countertop. All for less than $150. Very glad we purchased it.

I like it, and it does a good job at what it's suppose to do: microwave. But the controls are a little funky, and the plastic leaves it feeling a little cheap. For a Kenmore Elite, you'd expect top to the line material. And there's no way of closing the door without making a noise. But it's nice, big, and roomy.
We renovated our kitchen and decided to use all Kenmore appliances. We are happy with our purchase and the microwave has a professional look.

We bought this on a whim, actually, but very happy we did! It's big obviously, 2.2 cubic feet of cooking space, so we had to do a little rearranging on the countertop. Compared to our old microwave, wow! This thing cooks super fast and really does clean up easily, as I can already attest to! It has a lot of functions that I just haven't had time to play with just yet, but I anticipate using this oven for many years to come.

This microwave does not let you put in specific times. All buttons 1-6 automatically start the microwave for that many minutes. You can add in increments of 30 seconds by pushing the start button, but there is no way to punch in "4:45" as the cook time. Instead, it wants you to use all these pre-ordained codes for specific items. Think we're going to return it. I want to tell my microwave what to do-- not the other way around!
The sensor cook would shut off after just a few seconds, and the microwave in general is just not intuitive. I HATE the obnoxious beeping on it. It has no adjustment and beeps at the end of each cycle without shutting off. When my son said he wanted it for his man cave in his garage I was relieved that my husband (who hated the beeping even more than me) said TAKE it!!!! I bought an LG much cheaper and love it.
