This is kissing cousin to the highly regarded LG version. Same range, different name. Both are built on the same assembly line. A few key differences are: The LG has a full glass touchscreen display while the Kenmore has lexan "plastic" full screen display. The LG has the knobs slanted upward. Could be important is you have small kids in the house. The LG has a lower oven rack with rollers. You really have to look and decide what is important to you. The Kenmore has great handles on the oven racks that even with hand mits makes it easy to pull out and check a temp on that turkey. Both have similar oven sizes. Don't let the numbers fool you. The LG has a slightly larger upper oven, the Kenmore has a slightly larger lower oven. This range was delivered and installed easily. Standard gas hook-up. So far works greats.
This entire process has been a nightmare. I bought this lemon online and paid for delivery, conversion to propane, and then an inspection. Once Sears got my money everything went straight to ****. The two foreigners that came to install it claimed I had not paid for anything and demanded an additional $140 to convert it to propane. I had them call their supervisor to no avail. Ironically when I told them to take the stove and leave they miraculously changed their tune and proceeded to convert it to propane. Only they didn't do it correctly. If we try and use either oven the whole kitchen smells like propane so bad we are afraid of it. Meanwhile "American Home Services" the company that Sears pawned me off on to handle the delivery and such never scheduled the inspection. I paid for that and it was never done. I have called for over two months and left countless messages and not a single call back. So now I have been on the online chat, twice and they were useless. I have made multiple phone calls to multiple phone numbers for Sears and NOTHING. I keep getting transferred only to hear that "It's not my department" or "I can't help you." All the while they tell me that returning this lemon is out of the question due to their policy of being past 30 days. Meanwhile I've been trying to get help since it was installed. I have literally been dealing with this for over two months and nothing. PLEASE LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE AND DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH SEARS! Clearly there is a reason why they are failing. As for the stove itself it is just not a good piece of equipment. The griddle burner won't heat up enough to cook with. After multiple attempts to use the griddle that came with it we have decided that it is useless. It took 15 mins to cook a grilled cheese on it. Again, the big oval shaped burner in the middle won't heat up enough to get the griddle hot enough to be of any use. When you use the ovens the back left burner serves as some sort of heat exhaust and heat rolls out of it. So basically if you are trying to use that burner while baking/roasting you must account for the additional heat. However this was a problem only once because the propane smell when using the ovens is intolerable. The overall layout is bad. The top oven is so small that you can't do much with it and the lower oven is so low that you have to crawl in the floor to access it. PLEASE DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH SEARS THEY HAVE BEEN HORRIBLE.
It is great to be able to broil and bake at the same time!
Had this for 1 month only thing I can say is top oven is small
I bought it a month ago and I am very satisfied with the purchase.
No problems works every time timer works great Cook a 8 pound roast in five hours I made a pie in the top oven
