Easy To Clean
Heats Up Quickly
I've had this range for almost 3 years and I love it. I've done a lot of baking, not too much broiling but what I have done is fine. The power burner is great both for high-heat stir-fry or browning meat and for boiling large pots of water for pasta. When I was looking for a new oven, I did look at the GE and didn't like how far away the grate was from the burners, and I didn't really like the double-oven feature. I got this Kenmore, which had all the features I wanted and none of the features I didn't want, and it was a great deal for the price. I've been really happy with it. The self-cleaning feature is great. The black top part is a little hard to keep clean, though that would be true of any brand, but at least everything comes apart really easily for cleaning. I use the griddle all the time, for tortillas, grilled sandwiches, etc., and the power burner as well. Sears has great customer service. When I first got it I called them to check the temperature; it turned out my thermometer (one of those little 5-dollar ones) was pretty far off & not worth keeping. I have used the warming drawer once for actual warming, and it worked really well, but most of the time I just use the drawer for storage. One of the best features is the convection. I use it for roasting & some baking and it speeds up cooking and saves energy. I can't think of anything I would change about the performance of this oven. I notice more & more how far CR's ratings are from the reviews of actual users, and this is one of those times. I've started reading CR's test results but going to review websites or [@] comments on products to get a better idea what actual users think of a product.
