Microwave Strengths and Weaknesses
Cooking GOOD - Conventional over the range 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 FAIR - Each cubic foot of internal microwave oven capacity costs $259. This price level is 23% higher than the average new over the range microwave. Ranks in the bottom 20% of the over the range microwave class with FAIR affordability.  
Power GOOD - Maximum cooking power is 1000 watts. This is about average power compared to other new microwave ovens. The higher the cooking wattage, the faster your foods and drinks can be heated. Higher wattages also allows dishes to cook more 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 BEST - This Kenmore microwave has 3 of the following special features that can make a difference - Staged Cooking: Yes | Even Cooking Tech: No | Keep Warm: Yes | Non-Stick Interior: Yes | Halogen Heat: No | Speed Cook: No.
Warranty GOOD - Kenmore provides a standard one year limited warranty on the magnetron, one of the most expensive components in a microwave. The magnetron generates energy that radiates into the microwave cavity and heats the food or beverage.
