Boil, Boil Simmer and Toil
The 18,200 BTU Gas Turbo Boil brings pots and kettles to a rapid boil quicker while the 5,000 BTU Simmer Burner lets you warm, melt and ultra-low simmer for those super-detail oriented recipes.
No-Fuss Burner Grates
The easy-to-clean and scratch resistant porcelain cooktop makes it easy to wipe up spills and splatters. Dishwasher-safe cooktop grates give you more space to multitask through just about any recipe without worrying about crowding up your workspace.
Hot Heat Without Hot Spots
Fan convection helps to circulate hot air throughout the oven, eliminating hot spots. Get more even baking, browning and flavor in every dish from this Kenmore range.
Dinner is Ready When You're Ready
Use the Warm & Hold function to keep food at an ideal temperature for minutes or hours without risking over-cooking. Timed and delayed cooking settings lend multitasking home chefs an extra hand while cooking.
Control is at Your Fingertips
Easy Set controls on this Kenmore range make it super simple to set timers, oven temperature and other features so you can spend less time fussing and more...
Love this Kenmore stove! Had it for a year and a half now. The controls are easy to use (buttons click nicely), and the burners are laid out well. The gas burners work well with cast iron skillets. Had to get a wider bottomed tea kettle to take advantage of the power burner output. The oven bakes like a dream. Quick preheat, cooks evenly, and convection speeds up cooking. The fan is very quiet. I especially like using convection bake for roasting meat and baking fish: the skin browns nicely, but the meat stays moist inside. Easy to clean. The stove is attractive, and the grates are substantial without being too heavy. The stove's beep is a little on the quiet side, but I highly recommend this stove.
There's excessive amount of heat coming out of the vent just below the panel. I almost burned my hand when I put my hand next to it. This is a safety concern, and Kenmore & Sears should address. I would not recommend buying this oven to anyone.
After owning this oven for less than a year, I am regretting this purchase. The only good thing about this oven was the price. Here are my reasons:
Oven temperatures inconsistent & it takes longer to preheat than the allotted time.
My oven light has never worked.
The gas knobs can EASILY turn on when bumped allowing natural gas to escape into your home.
The back control panel as well as the knobs on the front get dangerously hot when the oven is turned on.
The griddle feature seems like a waste as it doesn't spread the heat evenly.
The bottom warming drawer is clumsy and never easily slides in and out...very cheap feeling. Do yourself a favor, and pass on this one. You will not regret paying a bit more for a better appliance.
the coating or raw rough grill makes it difficult to clean, i prefer the coated smooth black grills. Something to consider, tears up your sponges with how rough it is.
I love this gas range/oven... the only thing that i have a problem with is that the burner knobs will slightly turn on if your body happens to brush or bump them... many times i don't notice until i smell the gas...luckily i've been in the kitchen and have caught this before anything has happened.
