I use my Quick Touch Kenmore Microwave several times a day. I use my microwave to defrost something for dinner, cook quick mac and cheese for my kids, heat water for a cup of tea, and numerous other things. This specific model by Kenmore goes above my gas range and therefore does not take up my precious counter space. It is extremely easy to use and large enough for me to thaw chicken in a 9 x 13 glass baking dish. The buttons are simple yet there are so many functions available. One of my favorites is the fact that I can choose to defrost an item by its weight or by time. There is also a popcorn button which I use quite often since popcorn is a favorite snack in our house! There is a Cooking Guide located inside the door which gives suggestion times for cooking different items. I have used this often. Another feature that I love is the kitchen timer. I use this one more than any other timer in my kichen since it is easy to use. Kenmore makes great products and this mocrowave is no exception!
