The Kenmore microwave that I inherited with my house and was less than 10 years old broke. I replaced it with the exact model and the new one broke within 3 years. After replacing several parts myself and the fuse still blowing every time the microwave was used I called customer service. I was told that to have a tech come out to repair it would cost $249.00 plus labor. The microwave itself was only slightly more expensive. I also have a Kenmore fridge (that I also inherited with the house) that has broken twice within the 7 years that I've owned it. I will never again buy Kenmore products or anything through sears. The products are unreliable and Sears customer service is awful. What a frustrating experience.

Our Kenmore Elite Microwave we use everyday. We have been using it for years and love all the features. In fact, we have all Kenmore appliances in our kitchen. We use it for cooking popcorn, baked potatoes, frozen and fresh vegetables, warming food and defrosting. And the occasional microwave meal or instant oatmeal product types.

    The Kenmore countertop microwaves we have perform as superb as larger models. A quick coffee warmer or an 8 minute roast thaw provide excellent service. This small model Kenmore is no exception, though it’s at the top of my pick of small microwaves. Where it excels for me is at defrosting. I give the Kenmore an Excellent rating. Our new Kenmore is very quiet and speed of heating earns a Great rating. Heating evenness gives it a Great level rating also. I have not tried our Kenmore microwave with Alexa. We don't use Alexa much. In the basics category Kenmore earned an Excellent rating for predicted reliability as well as owner satisfaction. You will enjoy all Kenmore microwave products.

    I have a built-in Kenmore microwave (not my choice). I just don't like it when compared to my older Whirlpool or Panasonic microwaves. It lacks the conveniences the others had and doesn't seem like it works as good as them. One thing that gets on my nerve is the weird sound it makes when it is done.

    I have a Kenmore Over The Range microwave. It is a great microwave. It cooks well, and easy to clean. My favorite feature is the minute plus. If you need to add time to the cooking time simply press the number one button for each minute you need to add. This feature enables adding time easy and convenient. The thing I dislike the most is the amount of time before the end timer signal goes off the second time. It sounds when done then again in less than a minute. This is particularly annoying to me. I wholeheartedly would recommend this microwave.

    We continue to use our 1986 countertop Kenmore Microwave (model 87627) several times a week. Still works perfectly, display and keypad never had a glitch. Even the original light bulb works. My point? We have had much newer Sears Elite appliances that have not lasted as long, or the display/control panels burn out, refrigerator diffusers stop working, light switches fail, some push buttons stop working, etc. They don't make them like they used to.

    Purchased the Kenmore pro microwave oven. Beautiful looking appliance for my new kitchen. I loved the features along with the over the stove lighting. It was the first microwave I owned that had useful lighting. I never had any problems with it. Then it happened--one year and 7 days later it stopped working. Out of warranty, out of luck.

    I have consistently had good luck when purchasing Kenmore products, and the microwave is no exception. I got it at a reduced price on a Black Friday, and it has consistently performed well with accurate "doneness" based on recommended settings. It is easy to clean and is 9 years old... so it was a good choice.

    I've had this microwave since October 2005. It's never been serviced. It is digital and very modern and sleek looking above the range by the same maker. The displays make it very user friendly. The options for different types of food prep are many. I just can't say enough good things about it.

    It has been reliable so far for 2 years and never an issue. Had one Kenmore microwave before for 15 years before it gave out and never an issue. They are worth the money and easy to use. I would recommend any product that is kenmore. Refrigerator, stove and microwave since I have owned all 3.

    Kenmore Appliances author review by ConsumerAffairs Research Team

    Kenmore is a household name in many parts of the world. The company has more than a century of experience in the appliance industry and provides a wide range of high-quality products that include ovens, microwaves, vacuum cleaners, cooking pots and other home essentials.

    • Wide selection: Kenmore has dozens of microwaves available, each with its own set of special features. They are manufactured in different colors, sizes and price points.

    • Diamondback: The Diamondback technology of certain Kenmore microwaves eradicates the need for the rotating plate. The microwaves bounce off the diamond indentations and are redirected to provide even heating.

    • Freezer to plate: The continual heating selection allows you to defrost and then cook various items without having to stop and reset the microwave.

    • Convection: The convection setting allows you to change from conventional microwave heating to fan-powered convection through a heated element. This is better for roasting and baking.

    • High wattage: Kenmore microwaves are manufactured in a variety of sizes and wattages. The energy capacity of these ovens reaches up to 1100 watts.

    The ConsumerAffairs Research Team believes everyone deserves to make smart decisions. We aim to provide readers with the most up-to-date information available about today's consumer products and services.
