Kenmore 30" Sealed Gas Cooktop - Convenient, Powerful

This Kenmore 30" Gas Cooktop 3242 provides four top of the line sealed burners, including a 14,200 BTU Power Burner to heat water fast, and a simmer burner to maintain your food at a steady low heat. With its recessed design and subtle appearance, this cooktop can stay on any countertop and meld with any kitchen. The easy-to-clean grates are dishwasher safe and the rest of the cooktop is simple to wipe down. This cooktop uses an electronic ignition, so the lighting process is automatic. You'll know you're cooking with gas with this Kenmore sealed gas cooktop.

  • Designed to kick out serious heat, the Power Burner funnels 14,200 BTUs of flame power to your cooking surface, so steaks sear, eggs scramble and water boils quickly.
  • The 5,000 BTU Simmer Burner was designed to deliver reliable warming and ultra-low simmering with a consistent, precise flame, cutting down on scorched sauces and dried out dishes.
  • Built to eliminate the need to light and re-light pilots, electronic ignition delivers consistent flames with the turn of a knob, so you can get cooking fast.
  • Built to cut down on soaking and scrubbing, dishwasher safe grates deliver a stable surface for cooking, while cleaning up quickly alongside your pots and pans.
  • Speed through post-cooking cleanup thanks to a porcelain cooktop surface that helps contain spills, resist scrapes and wipe clean quickly.

Terrible product!
After this stove top was installed, two of the four burners didnt even work! The simmer burners' gas supply was crossed with the power burner! You would get a huge flame from the tiny simmer burner, and a tiny flame from the power burner! The control knobs were very flimsy! I was very unhappy with the poor quality of this product! Will never buy a Kenmore appliance again! Huge waste of time!

30" Gas cooktop

The cooktop works well. A couple of notes: 1.) the gas regulator is underneath just behind the control nob. I had problems getting to the electrical outlet; 2.) an adjoining drawer had to be trimmed as it was making contact with the bottom of the manifold housing. other than that its been pretty good.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Shoddy Finish

I am about to get my third replacement in less than a year and I've only cooked on my most recent one for just over two weeks. The **** markings, including Kenmore brand logo, are already gone. I only used a little warm soapy water and a soft cloth to clean it. The stainless steel scratches very easily. Although it functioned fine, I would not recommend buying this cooktop. I'm now replacing it with something else. I've used Kenmore products for 30 years and this is my first reject.

Good Burner Performance, Poor Finish

I purchased this cooktop in September of 2012 as part of a total kitchen remodel. I originally purchased a slightly cheaper kenmore cooktop but sears sent this model after it was found the original cooktop I purchased was no longer available. The associate assured me the model 3242 was a better cooktop that would be easier to clean. Unfortunately, that was not the case. We have had a few minor spills that will only come off with mild abrasives which end up scratching the stainless finish. Also, after only two months the labels on the burner knobs started to rub off when wiped only with a wet rag. The cooktop burners perform well but I do not recommend purchasing due to the poor durability of the finish.

Hazardous

I recently purchased this cooktop. It does function in that it turns on and has the expected flame. However, it is so poorly designed that it is hazardous. The control knobs heat up to such a degree when the cooktop is on that they are way too hot to touch with bare hands. An accidental burn is a decided probability. I needed an oven mitt to turn the burner off. This is dangerous and it is thoroughly inexcusable to sell this product. I am a very unhappy purchaser.

Bad Choice

I purchased this product in January, 2011. The cooktop works well; however, the knobs have cracked and the paint indicating the temperature has peeled off. I called Kenmore but received no help at all. I will NEVER purchase another Kenmore product.

Scratches Bad

When I first had this installed, I loved the way it looked and it cooks great. But it scratches soooooo easy! It looks terrible now and I've only had it a month...I tried to be very careful cleaning it but if there is a little speck or something on the cloth IT WILL SCRATCH! I know stainless steel scratches some but this is ridiculous. As far as how it cooks I had no problems.

Kenmore Gas Cooktop

I absolutely love it. It is easy to clean. The sealed burners prevent baked/burnt on splash spots. It is great looking and just was a great choice.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
