Kenmore microwave ovens span a wide range of sizes and features. Some Kenmore microwaves double as convection ovens, which use an interior fan to brown foods, something that standard microwaves cannot do. Kenmore also offers microwave ovens that use inverter technology to cook foods more evenly.

Kenmore countertop microwaves are available in sizes ranging from 0.7 to 2.2 cubic feet. These microwave ovens are completely portable and simply plug into a wall socket to work. They are also the most affordable microwaves in the Kenmore line.

Over-the-range microwave ovens from Kenmore must be installed over a cooktop. They come with range hoods under the microwave; some of these models switch the fan system on automatically if they sense steam coming from the stovetop. These microwave ovens range in size from 1.1 to 2.1 cubic feet.

Kenmore also makes built-in microwaves and built-in microwave drawers; both styles must be professionally installed. Built-in microwave ovens range from 0.8 to 1.8 cubic feet and are sometimes installed as part of a wall-oven installation. Microwave drawers pull out like a drawer rather than having a door that opens. They range in size from 1 to 1.5 cubic feet.
