Microwave Strengths and Weaknesses
Cooking GOOD - Conventional countertop microwave with standard cooking functions. Quickly reheats leftovers or warms new foods using a central heating source that cooks food from the "inside-out". Does not have browning, crisping, or grilling capability.  
Cost BETTER - Each cubic foot of internal microwave oven capacity costs $99. This price level is 10% lower than the average new countertop microwave. Ranks in the top 15% of the countertop microwave class with BETTER affordability.
Power BEST - Maximum cooking power of 1200 watts is 20% higher than the average new microwave oven. Ranks in the top 15% of new microwaves for BEST power generation. Has the ability to cook dishes and heat foods or beverages more quickly and evenly.
Sensors BEST - Equipped with sensor cooking capability that helps do the thinking for you. Special sensors detect and monitor steam humidity levels. They automatically select the appropriate power and time required to cook, reheat, or defrost foods and drinks.
Features BETTER - This Kenmore microwave has 2 of the following special features that can make a difference - Staged Cooking: Yes | Even Cooking Tech: No | Keep Warm: No | Non-Stick Interior: Yes | Halogen Heat: No | Speed Cook: No.
Warranty BETTER - Kenmore provides a 5 year limited warranty on the magnetron, one of the primary components in a microwave. This warranty length is significantly longer than the standard one-year warranty found on about 50% of new microwaves.
