Kenmore 30" Electric Cooktop — High Performance and Great Style

This 30-inch stainless steel Kenmore Electric Cooktop 4511 offers a nine-inch 3,200 watt Turbo Boil Element, 12/nine-inch Dual 3,000/1,800 watt Power Element, seven-inch 1,500 watt element and a six-inch 1,200 watt element for complete cooking flexibility. The ceramic glass cooktop makes for easy clean up. The cast metal knobs offer superior appearance and quality construction for any kitchen.

  • Put dishes like pastas and soups on your table faster with a lot less pot watching - high performance 12/9 in. 3,000W power element brings foods to a super quick boil. Flexible element lets you choose a 9 in. or 12 in. size to fit your pan. Large pots are heated more evenly, and smaller pots get an element just their size for more effective, efficient cooking
  • Stylish control knobs add an extra measure of class to the cooktop design - stainless steel cast-metal knobs offer precise control plus a more sophisticated look and feel to the model
  • Sauteing to frying, youll appreciate ideal complements for your standard and smaller pots and pans cooking - 7 in. 1,500Ws and 6 in. 1,200W elements handle all your surface cooking needs
  • A cooktop as beautiful as it is easy to clean - sculptured ceramic glass cooktop adds a sleek, high-style look to your kitchen. The formed ceramic glass cooktop features a flush look and beveled edge with stainless steel trim. Plus, the seamless, one piece design is really easy to clean
  • Avoid accidental cooktop burns - four highly visible cooktop hot surface indicator lights glow brightly so you know which element or elements are still too hot to the touch

Very nice, Stylish and Efficient cooktop...

I could not be happier with this cooktop. It works great, looks great, and boils water very quickly for pastas, rice, etc...

The last person who left a review apparently cannot read. The burner is not a 'turbo burner' for fois gras; it's specifically called, listed and shown as a 'turbo boil' burner. You're supposed to 'boil' things on it.

Regardless, it's not too difficult to clean either. Just wipe it down often so splatter doesn't get caked on after cooking and it should be just fine. We've had ours for about four months now and thoroughly enjoy it.

Poorly engineered Turbo Burner makes this a 3 usable burner top

We bought this cooktop about 10 months ago and right away I noticed something strange about the 'turbo boil' burner... it seemed to burn just about anything I cooked on it to a cinder.

 

After several months of scorched food I also noticed that the stovetop even quickly boiled water on the 'low setting' on that turbo burner.  I finally took it upon myself to take a surface laser pyrometer and measure the temperature of the burner.... the turbo boil burner gets up to 800 degrees ON LOW (compared to 280-300 degrees for other burners)...  pretty much hot enough to burn anything you put on it if you aren't very careful and if you don't plan to cook on high heat. 

 

Low clearly does not mean low for that one burner and we're left with a three  burner stovetop with only one working large-sized burner and a high-temp burner that I can boil on only.

 

Other than that issue this stovetop works great.  Nice looking, reasonably easy to clean but shows dirt very easily.  However I feel like we wasted our money in buying it...  we are really limited to just one full sized burner now unless we want something burned.

 

I would not have bought this item if I knew the drawbacks.  I spoke to the associates at the store where I purchased it and they were as suprised as I was about how it worked.  Had a Sears-contract repairman come out to look at it and they said "this is how it works".  The sales associates did a great job and called the engineers who ended up agreeing with the repairman.  This is how it works... poorly designed.

Kenmore Elite 30" cooktop

Just purchased and installed this Kenmore Elite cooktop and absolutely love it ! Was a little concerned it would not sit flat after reading the reviews, however found with a little adjustment it sit perfectly in my island ! The turbo eye does actually heat up very quickly! Totally pleased with this purchase!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
