Perhaps I'm missing out on something really Joyful and Rich but microwaves do one thing - heat food.

And disinfect kitchen sponges.

So that's two. And, after 30 days of use, this microwave heats food and disinfects kitchen sponges as well as the last one...which is about all any normal person can do, compare the current to the old. Perhaps, if my life were ordered so, I could take home four or five microwaves and time how long it takes to boil water or heat frozen peas. But there's a big world outside and I like it. Therefore, I plug it in, think, "hmmm. That's about how long it took the other one," and hope the thing isn't frying my chromosomes due to a microwave leak. Or something.

But, one point needs to be made - the Kenmore 1.6cu ft. Microwave Oven has the loudest, most insistent BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP I've ever heard. It's so loud, I've actually come to respect it. The engineers at Kenmore (or wherever the things are made) have also seen fit to ship the device without any way to soften or remove the BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP of the alarm too.

So, I've resorted to waiting until the last second of time and stop the timer via opening the door. That way, I get a single BEEP. Of course, then I have this lingering second left on the timer and, in order to see the time (which it displays in a nice green glow), I have to hit "Cancel" and that triggers another BEEP. So, I cut my cooking to save the five BEEPS. Yeah, they're that annoying.

Over time, I'll get used to it. My hearing is going anyway so by the time it comes around to get a new one, maybe I won't give a dang about the beeps and simply remain grateful that I live in a time where I can boil water and disinfect sponges with relative ease.

I bought this Kenmore to replace a Sharp that served me very well for over 15 years. The digital readout had been blown for the past 12 years ( following a move ) , the light bulb just burnt out but the worst part was that the outer paint job of the Sharp became tacky… something was dissolving the paint. So like a true American I threw it in the trash and ordered something shiny and new. My parents always swore by Kenmore but I’d never owned a Kenmore anything. I found this one on sale at for 109.00, free shipping and it was delivered within 20 hours. Not bad at all.
What I needed was a microwave and it does that. It heats up leftovers just fine. The size of 1.6 CF is a bit smaller than my previous Sharp but still is roomy. It is not bad looking in person but I should have forgone the stainless steel upgrade. The sides and top are painted gray and the stainless steel is simply glued onto the door. I mean to say the stainless steel was not stamped to form the shape of the door. A sheet of stainless steel was simply punched out of a sheet and glued to what I’m sure is a plastic frame. The door also seems to be self-slamming. It slams with the slightest of pushes. The four little feet that the microwave sits upon have been molded from such a hard plastic that the entire oven slides across the counter when simply pressing the START or any button. I won’t mention the deafening sound that this thing emits when it has completed a cook. Others have covered it sufficiently. Finally, I have tried out some of the various “sensor” cooking modes. I tried heating leftovers with sensor cook. Failure. Overheated to the point of nearing burnt. I’ve tried cooking fresh vegetables using sensor cook. Failure. Raw. And I’ve tried using sensor cook to prepare a frozen entrée. Failure. Hot and cold spots. I’d be happy if this oven omitted half the buttons on the front and just heated up leftovers using a minute timer. Which is exactly how I use it.

I so wanted to love this microwave, and researched until I was blue in the face to make an educated decision on my choice. I settled on this one due to the high ratings, it had all the features I was looking for, and because it was a Kenmore. I've been a Kenmore appliance owner for over 30 years, and expected the high quality that has always been associated with Kenmore. This microwave is sadly not up to par with previous Sears standards. The first one I bought came out of the box with a huge dent, so I immediately returned it for another one. That in and of itself was an annoyance, but I overlooked it because these things can happen. So the second one which I have owned for a month has completely gone haywire. First, I have only used it MAYBE 10 times. MAYBE. Yesterday it stopped heating altogether. It would run, and run, and run and not heat anything. I realized that if I lifted the door slightly while it was closed and running, it would stop, but NOTHING would turn it off - the 'CANCEL' button wouldn't turn it off, so I had to unplug it entirely. Obviously this one has a faulty door mechanism which controls the on and off function.

Complete waste of time, effort and money, and now I have to return it for another brand. I refuse to buy another Kenmore microwave. Sadly, my previous microwave (which was white and wouldn't fit with my new kitchen decor) was 16 years old, and worked AMAZING, but I donated it as soon as I purchased this one. Back to the drawing board. I would not recommend this microwave at all. It's a shame because it is a nice looking machine, but mine is absolutely useless.
