Best grill yet
I've been using using gas grills for about 30 years and have tried many brands. Our last grill was an $1800 model by Vermont Castings. Our problems have always been caused by where we live; Louisiana weather will eat a grill up. No amount of baked on enamel will protect steel when you live here and cast iron grates are gone in a year. We've had the Kenmore 415.16649010 in brushed stainless steel finish for three years and it's held up beautifully. About 85% of the grill is made from stainless and the enameled steel parts are mostly not exposed to cooking. Unfortunately, the firebox is enameled and very susceptible to rusting. Just to be safe, I've lined the firebox sidewalls and bottom with several layers of heavy-duty aluminum foil. This has worked well to protect the steel and after three years is finally ready for a fresh lining of foil. The steel in the grill is high quality and with a normal amount of wiping after use, it has not suffered more than a few spots of minor discoloration. I know that even stainless will discolor when exposed to heat, moisture, and salt. We paid our Sears dealer about $100 to assemble the grill and install the conversion unit for natural gas and it was money well-spent. My only complaint has to do with the rotisserie unit that was recommended at the store for this grill. The Master Forge Stainless Universal Rotisserie (mod. FL-6107-2SQ) is an excellent unit and has given good service but I had to modify (bend) the mounts to get the unit to fit the grill. I have filed the sharp corners to prevent damage to the cover. I try to get the grill under our porch when rain is threatening but it has had a few soakings. So far this had not caused a problem- I wipe out the water from inside the cabinets and pour the collected water out of the grease tray and it keeps on ticking. BTW, it helps to keep the grease tray cleaned out! I researched this grill before buying and read complaints about the btu's generated and the large opening at the back of the cover. In the past I've struggled to cook on grills that wanted to incinerate the food (i.e. Vermont Castings). For me the Kenmore gives just the right amount of heat. I have yet to burn food on this grill, including with the rotisserie, and the cooking time is reasonable. Plus, the gap at the back of the cover makes visual inspection of the food without raising the lid easy to do when the halogen lamps are turned on. All in all, it's been a great value for the money and it still looks good!

Sears won't help you with any questions
bought grill # 71161556000 for $700. Tried to get info on type of rotisseriere unit to use on the grill,and owners manual to explain use of grill. After 30 minutes on the phone with their terrible voice mail system, i gave up. I can't believe how incompetent they are, and to top it off, they kept on suggesting that you go on to their web based chat system to get your asnswer promptly. What they did not say is there is a $30 fee for such a service. Don't buy from Sears!!

Exceptionally functional

I also purchased the natural gas kit and rotisserie. Easy to convert to natural gas. Having great fun using the rotisserie. I may just become the future Bobby Flay.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not worth the money

I bought this items two years ago and while it cooks very well the grill is made very poorly and does not last. If you are foolish enough to buy this grill get the 5 year warranty as it won't last. Within 2 years all of the pop rivets that hold the pieces together have failed. I believe this is due tp the heat in the main grill box. I can't believe that the product can't hold together in the most basic way for 2 years. Sears will not offer any warranty for poor craftmanship if you don't get the extended warranty. Oh, by the way, Weber and other offer a lifetime guarantee for the cabin and main assembly parts. I would not look at any Kenmore grill. Works great for 6 months but then it begins to fall apart and rust. By the way, it was covered all the time when not in use.

B-day gift conundrum

Took my wife and I about an hour to put together. Directions could be more clear but mounting hardware is pretty simple. I found one of the igniter wires dangling inside and it took a few minutes to trace where it SHOULD be connected. Haven't even used it yet and I've got to figure out how to find a solution for that in the manufacturer's warranty. wire was pulled out of the igniter inside the ceramic way to repair that. need a new one. Otherwise, it looks good and seems to be in working order. Grates are solid. Wires seem ok (otherwise). Knobs are all basic plastic. I'd say it's an average product.

Kenmore Gas Grill

Old grill was worn out, looked around everywhere for a new one, we use at least 4 times a week, and sears had the best selection from low to high end. Picked the Kenmore 5 burner unit and we are very happy with it and was easy to assemble.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

gas grill

I appreciate the even cooking (from front to back) and the ease of igniting the burners. If I was to redesign this product I would place a draw beneath the work area or move the tank so there would be more storage. Overall I believe it was a great buy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very Happy Customer

After a lot of shopping around we decided on this grill. We have used it for a couple of weeks and LOVE IT! It does everything it should and the food (steaks, brats, chicken, pork and veggies) we have cooked so far has turned out awesome. I love the stainless grill plates. I am finally able to cook everything at one time and not in stages as we previously had a smaller grill. Having multiple burners is very convenient when cooking multiple types of food at one time. The sales people were fabulous even after my 4th trip to the store comparing grills.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
