The Kenmore 91312 is part of the Range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Electric smoothtop range models like the 91312 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Cooktop high: This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.
Cooktop low: This reflects how well the lowest-powered element or burner kept a low temperature as for melting chocolate. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.
Baking: This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.
