We have only had this microwave for a few weeks, but so far it is working really great. It is very powerful and heats food up much faster than our very old and tiny microwave. I always thought microwaves were pretty much the same, but that's definitely not true here! I also like that it is large. Sometimes I want to reheat a casserole or something and I'd have to portion it into smaller sizes in my own microwave. With our new one, I can just put the whole thing in. The unit is really quite attractive too. It's not really fancy, but it looks nice in our kitchen and matches our other Kenmore appliances. Overall we are very satisfied with our new Kenmore microwave and look forward to using it for a long time to come!
