Product Description

Kenmore 36" Sealed Gas Cooktop - Convenient, Powerful

This Kenmore 36" Gas Cooktop 3243 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.

Kenmore SS gas cook top electric ignition shock hazard.
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.

Kenmore Gas cooktop

I bought this cooktop January 2013, and in august 2014 it started sparking and soon after the electronic ignition quit working . Since it was out of warranty I bought another one, now having trouble with this one. The power burner lets out a large flame when I turn it on and the control **** gets really hot . Knobs should not get so hot you cannot turn them off . I do not recommend this cook top .

Perfect for what we wanted!

Gas stove to replace our old one that wouldn't light on its own anymore. Perfect stainless stove for the price! Works as advertised, no surprises. Easy to install and convert to LP.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The perfect cooktop!!

My wife and I are extremely happy with our new Kenmore cooktop. It was installed easily by the contractor who put in our new Pental Quartz kitchen counters and glass backsplash. It looks great and works well especially the "power burner" which heats a teapot of water very quickly. Clean up is so easy. Our new kitchen looks great and the Kenmore cooktop is a big part of that. Delivery was super fast and came the next day after I placed the order.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love The Range

This range looks like it should cost hundreds of dollars more! In fact, I showed it to a friend who I know just remodeled his kitchen, and he guessed it must have cost twice what I paid for it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent functionality/Poor quality

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.

Garbage! Don't bother with this one!

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.

Hard to clean

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.
