  • The Variable Self Clean feature lets you choose the cleaning time from 2 to 4 hours, so you can save time and energy when the oven only needs a quick touch-up
  • With a long-lasting finish that's less likely to tarnish or discolor than others, porcelain-coated oven racks keep foods from sticking and make cleanup fast
  • The oven light comes on automatically when the oven door is opened and can be activated at any time to check on cooking progress
  • The wall oven fits flush to the cabinetry for a sleek, stylish built-in look

dont always believe what you read

i d read all the reviews on kenmore wall ovens but bought this model anyway since this particular one only had 3 reviews total and none under 3. now mind you ive only had it about 3 weeks but have used it six times. when it was installed instead of breaking it in by the bood i set it for self clean for 455 minutes. worked great. So contrary to whqat the other reviews said, this is what it didnt do. It didnt pop the internal fuse when set to self clean at 4540 degrees. it didnt smoke unbearably when first used. It didnt take forever to reach set temperature and it wasnt of by ecven one degree according to a independant hanging thermometer. It didnt make loud fan noise, ande it didnt take a week to cool down. Buy this machine you wont go wrong

Great basic oven!

I purchased this Kenmore to replace my 15 year old GE Profile. The old GE had a broken upper heating element and/or control board. The cost of replacing the heating element is 120, the control board is 220, if I can manage to do it myself. If I have to have the parts installed for me, it will cost over 500. So instead I purchased this Kenmore new for a bit more than replacement GE parts. Before purchasing, I read the manual on to make sure our cabinet fits. Once that's confirmed, the installation was a breeze. This Kenmore has pretty much the same features as my 15 year old GE. The Kenmore interior is about 1.5 inch wider than my old GE. It's not built as solid as the 15 year old oven (like everything else nowadays). The rack is hard to push in since the interior wall is not even and has slight buckles. I read reviews about the fan before purchase, but still the fan annoys me. The fan starts as the oven starts, and continue for an hour after the oven is turned off. The old GE was... soundless, I didn't know if the GE profile was on or off. It would be hard to miss this oven given the FAN! I almost returned the oven because of the fan, but decided it's too much trouble. But I did keep the old GE in the garage just in case. I also figure out to stub out the light while keeping the door open after turning off, which shortens the FAN operations from one hour to less than 10 minutes. It's a low tech solution but it works. Other than the fan, I would say the Kenmore performs to my expectation. Preheating takes a little longer. The temperature is persistent and accurate (even if not, it can be calibrated). It bakes evenly front and back, up and down (this part it does better than the 15 year old GE). Digital panel functions are simple and basic, just like the old GE Profile. Since I bought the Kenmore at a sale from Sears (plus 15% for applying a Sears store card), I am happy that I got a brand new oven, with the same cost as repairing a 15 year old GE. I hope this oven can last at least 10 years, then it will really be a great buy!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Sears makes it so easy to purchase appliances. The price is right and the services is excellent. That is why Sears is the only place we go when we need a new appliance.

Has very slow warm-up time

I like this wall oven but it does have a few issues that bother me. One is an all-glass front that seems to be easy to brake. Another issue is a very slow warm-up time. It takes 20 minutes for this oven to reach a preheat temperature of 375 degrees F. I have to keep this in mind and always start the oven earlier than I would like. Also, the fan runs all the time the oven is on and even after it shuts off until it cools down. I have to keep the door open after it shuts off to make the fan go off in a reasonable time period.

Very attractive

Love the oven but 2 is 2" smaller than my other oven in the interior and the front is all glass...beautiful but I'm worried that it might be too delicate.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
