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.
- Comfortable at home or in the RV, an LP gas convertible design means this range works with natural gas and liquid propane, so no matter where you're cooking, meals are done right.
- Built to cut down on soaking and scrubbing, cast iron dishwasher safe grates deliver a stable surface for cooking, while cleaning up quickly alongside your pots and pans.

We had this stovetop installed two years ago and the functionality of the stovetop is excellent. We have had no issues with it's functions in any way, however, after two years of use the markings on the stovetop (indicating flame, on/off, etc) have worn away and are no longer visible on the stovetop. Fortunately I know how to use my stove but anyone else that may come over and need to use it will not know because of the missing marks. Poor design quality.

I have had the stove for less than 3 weeks. I took the grate off yesterday to wash in the sink and the 1 piece grate broke!!! yes it broke. I have never seen that before. I cook on this stove once a day for dinner and I have come to realize it was not a good decision. Also it's not easy to clean. There is always residue left (I have the black one). Save yourself the headcahe and dont buy this model.
After installation we had to have one burner replaced as it stopped lighting. The black surface shows everything and it does not come clean...baked on deposits do not come clean. Otherwise it works fine and I like the 5 burners.
We got this cooktop when we updated our countertops and couldn't be happier. The cooktop looks beautiful and works great. I like the power burner being in the front and the simmer burner in the back. Cleans up nicely.
Ive had this for 8 months now & i love it. The grates are sturdy heavy & easy to clean. I have 2 cons to consider when you purchase. 1) The paint on the knobs are already wearing off and 2) The burner for normal heating cook time is located in the center far back of the range, making it a tad inconvenient. The front two are a rapid boil which and the other is a dual ring flame, which typically goes to only 1 flame even though it starts off at 2 flames so this can make your cook time slower & a bit uneven if you have a time line. Other than that & getting used to it it is a good gas efficient appliance
We upgraded to this cooktop. These are the things about this product we love: Deep recessed top, lots of power and the stainless top. Some of the coating did flake off one of our grates but this is not a big deal.
This stove was installed in a new home we purchased approximately 18 months ago. During this time period the stove seemed to work fine until this week when we noticed electrical arcing around one of the burners. We quickly unplugged the unit to remove electrical power. We cleaned the burner and plugged the unit back in and all appeared well. Then as my wife was wiping off the stove after use with a damp wash cloth she recieved an electrical shock from the stove. Clearly the electric ignition has shorted and is electrifying the entire unit. This is a huge safety hazard. Not only do I recommend that no one purchase this item, but I recommend that Sears quit selling the item.
Wow, I read the reviews before purchasing and decided to be careful re cleaning, chipping etc. Well, this unit has exceeded my expectations! It is very high end in appearance and performance! Nothing is chipping or wearing off. We use it daily and love it! I highly recommend this product. No etching,no problem with the lettering, very even heat. One more thing, the picture on the Sears site makes it look like the knobs have white on them in the stainless model. They do not, they are black and stainless color. It is now 6 months old and looks like new!
