Very pleasantly surprised at the evenness of heat this grill produces. I have a high end grill at my other home and this cooks as well.
This so called stainless steel grill is JUNK! I have owned it for just over 1 year. The "stainless steel" heated are almost rusted through. The "stainless" is peeling off of the cabinet leaving rust underneath. The igniter quit 4 months ago. (Yes I changed the battery.....still no joy). Bottom line this grill is not worth the money spent. DO NOT BUY THIS CHEAPLY MADE CHINESE PIECE OF JUNK!!!!!! I gave it a 1 star rating because a 0 star rating is not allowed!
Very Disappointing - Our previous grill was a Kenmore and overall we were pretty pleased with it. We've had this Kenmore 2 months and I am still trying to figure out how best to work with it. The temperature is lower than the thermometer registers and the heat is inconsistent throughout the grill. Even placing a thermometer inside the grill has not helped much. Thus, it is difficult to determine when meats are done- we grill salmon, chicken thighs, hamburger patties and steaks regularly and it is hit or miss in terms of whether the food is cooked. We've had hamburger patties cook 13 minutes, look good with clear juices yet be raw inside We have not been able to get good grill marks on meat, so the chicken end up looking pale. Salmon, I'm starting to get the hang of, but am not yet confident. If a grill was easy to return I would return it. The only good thing about this grill is that it is easier to clean than any other grill I've owned. Though, cleaning a grill is still one of my most disliked tasks. This is a purchase I regret, yet it seems the grill choices are slim right now. Good Luck!
So far, so good. I purchased this grill from the sears store, not online. The first one I purchased ?on line? I had returned.
This one was an older model and the Stainless Steel was much thicker just like the ?elite model.
?The new ones are thin and feel flimsy. I suggest finding the older models, they are built much better. ?Either way they are all good value and work well.
The best grill ive ever bought, works excellent. The ladies love it..through a party had all my friends jealous.
