My old unit died and we replaced it with this one the week of thanksgiving. What a relief, It's nice to have the digital temperature controls on the oven to make baking easier. Love the cast iron grates, cleaning is a breeze.
I bought this oven and about 2 years in the oven stopped igniting on its own. I was told the cost to have it fixed would be about the same as a new stove. So I bought another stove the same one, stupid me. Here we go again the exact same problem. Sorry to say I don't trust the name Kenmore anymore.
Had for 2 years works good
Gas range looks good until you go to use it. The heat from the oven is vented center of the stove right below the touch pad, clock timer etc, and gets very hot to the touch. It almost gets hot enough to melt it. Also when the burners are turned on and than shut off the excess gas that has built up in the burner tube ignites with a poof. Many times have we **** the burners off and reached for a pot thinking it was off and poof a big ball of fire. I have contacted sears and they sent a technician that said there isn't much that can be done and if he were to order new parts it would still do it. He said it was a low end range and that was the reason. Un happy with this product!!
Bought this stove online and was pleased with the price, however the grates are steel with porcelain coating. The problem is that pots or pans can slide off the grate if you bump the handles which can lead to someone getting burned like a small child or,your legs. . The grates are too slippery! You cannot stir with one hand without the pot spinning. I returned this stove and bought another kenmore with cast iron grates.
had this stove for four month and the oven not working the timer not on no more.
wonderful stove reasonable prices
The only thing that isn't great about this stive are the burner grates, they are very cheap and I don't like the look of them being raised so high. It was hard to see this online when I ordered it may have persuaded me not to.
I really love this stove my previous stove was a 24 inch one, I have more space to cook and bake. But what is really helpful is the controls on this unit. The oven you touch bake and touch the arrow up and it go to 350. As some one who is vision impared it give you the freedom of cooking and not having to ask what temp do I have this. what a joy.
oven stops working after 2 years like clock work do not buy
I purchased this for my summer house 15 months ago and have only used the stove for about 6 months. Just found out that the safety valve is defective and is leaking gas into the house. Since I bought it 15 months ago it isn't under warranty. The replacement part is $180 not including labor to install.
I bought this stove, its the only one i could afford at the time. because we were and still are redoing the kitchen , the stove is not upagainst a wall on eitherside. well much to my surprize when my grandson (age 3) zoomed by on his scooter the pot of food flew off the stove. It has happened a few more times since. yes probably the stove needs to be more leveled, but the burner grates are too high. without the sides being highter there is some danger there. will not buy this type of design again
Cheap & stainless, the two usually don't go well together in the appliance world. Thankfully, this range is an exception.
I was pleasantly surprised with the quality construction of the range. It has galvanized metal under the lift up range top, ensuring rust resistance. The oven door has a solid feel to it, and the burner controls all operate smoothly.
This range has open burners, something that has all but disappeared from ranges today. Put some aluminum foil under the lift up top and forget about spills. Many people prefer sealed burners for ease of cleanup, I simply throw the foil away when too much **** piles up and put new foil down; easy, simple, and hardly inconvenient. The oven keeps an accurate temperature, and the broil drawer is simple to use, even with casserole dishes. Other reviewers have commented on the lack of oven insulation, it does not bother me, and is typical of any non self-cleaning oven.
Simply put, this was the perfect range for my limited budget.
My old stove was gradually breaking and I needed a new one soon. Plus I was on a major budget due to other bills. I was not expecting the cadillac of stoves. It took me alot of shopping around and I scored a great buy for a quality stove.
very happy with this stove for the price
It is a basic stove with the ammenities I was looking for. Very pleased
This oven is a decent one for a cheap price. I bought it 6 months ago and cook a lot. It does have some annoying quirks though, so if you cook a lot and can afford a better one get it.
issues: burners are slick, especially with irregular pots, like setting a roaster pan on them to cool. Burners tend to go out when adjusting to low, so do a visual check too. They don't fill the room with gas though, there must be a safety. The outside does get really hot, but not enough to burn on contact. it heats up a room too.
I like doing cinnamon toast in the broiler drawer, and I like the digital oven temp and ready light. It seems to bake evenly and everything else has worked fine.
