Kenmore Elite 30" Gas Cooktop - Precision Gas Cooking

The Kenmore Elite gas cooktop 3230 brings your kitchen the power of gas cooking with the precision of an electric range. The multiple burners offer individual power settings to give you the most accurate temperatures. The TurboBoil Power Burner delivers 18,200 BTUs to bring water to a quick boil, while the dual ring burner can produce as much as 18,000 BTUs for sautéing or as little as 900 for a soft simmer. These ceramic grate burners are recessed to deliver both a sleeker look and an easy continuous cooktop, perfect for balancing multiple pots.

  • The 18,000 BTU Dual Ring Burner combines rapid heating and boiling with smaller flame options that simmer and warm to fit your skillet, pot and meal perfectly.
  • Designed to kick out serious heat, the Power Burner funnels 12,000 BTUs of flame power to your cooking surface, so steaks sear, eggs scramble and water boils quickly.
  • Designed to power you through dishes large and small, 9,500 BTU burners deliver heat for a wide range of cooking options, so you can simmer, sear, warm and boil all in one spot.
  • 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.
  • Crafted from cast metal and manufactured to high standards, these control knobs add a durable, premium touch to your range while putting you in control of the cooking.

Perfect - Exactly what we were looking for!!!

Love it - love it - love it!! We needed to replace our 4-burner stove top which was embedded in a 30-inch cut-out in a Granite countertop. I wanted and needed more burners but did not want the hassle of cutting the Granite nor did I want to loose counter space to accomodate a 36-inch stove-top. I wanted a quick, EASY solution. This worked out PERFECT!!! My favorite part is the 5th burner in the middle - it boils a large pot of water quicker than I ever imagined! If you are in a situation like ours - this is a perfect quick-fix and to our surprise, a true upgrade. The entire stove-top (each and every burner) works and operates more superior than our previous Jenn-Aire did. I do not have a problem with space because if I am using all the burners - I just turn the handles to the outside. We just couldn't be happier.

Kenmore Elite 30 Gas Cooktop - Very dissapointed

I would not recommend this product to anyone. We bought it one month ago and one of the burner is already not working. However, it looks very nice. I never had issues with kenmore until I bought this cooktop. My dishwasher, oven, washer, dryer and refrigerator are all kenmore and did not have to have one service call. Very dissapointed with this cooktop.

Don't Buy It!

This gas cooktop range operates ok. However, a few months after we purchased it, stains would appear on the "porcelain enamel cooktop" and we have not been able to remove them. The cooktop now looks like a complete mess. The stains are a result of normal cooking and there is no apparent reason why they cannot be removed. As the manual stated, we cleaned the cooktop with non abrasive mild cleaners and tried to clean the stains "with water and ammonia". Also the knobs have faded and the Kenmore logo has peeled off. Kenmore has deeply disappointed us this time.

I love this gas cook top

This 30 inch gas cook top is great, I love this stove. wow! the stove is a cooks dream; this stove heat up and cooks food quickly with it conventional quick speed, a mother dream. I have use that quick speed so often already that I am spoil by this stove. I can not tell you how great it is to have this type of stove in your household. It will remind you of the ones that you see at a restaurant but it is your and everything cooks so evenly, a cooks dream I have a very large family and I was always in the kitchen cooking now that I have this stove I can do other things when you have a large family, times is so rare and now that I have this conventional stove time is some thing I treasure and now I can cook food quickly I have time to enjoy my family that Is what I calling home cooking and family time what I am older woman and times fly by so quickly that any time I can free up and enjoy my family is worth the money spend for the conventional stove, ladies treat yourself this is something you buy for your family that will pay for itself in time that you have to engage in family activity instead of cooking a hot meal.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

awesome cooktop

Looked at many different gas cooktops in a varity of styles , brands, and price points and ultimately purhcased the kenmore elite gas 30 inch ccoktop. Bueautiful cooktop and fits perfectly in the kitchen. Great flexibilty with the different types of burner functions and versatility, would highly recommend to anyone looking to replace/upgrade their cooktop. Only down side is difficulty in keeping clean and mysterious brown spots under 2 of the burners that will not come clean.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Almost perfect

Bought this unit on September 9, 2014 to replace a Jenn-air cooktop. I measured and remeasured so as to ensure that it would fit the existing cut out in the granite. Oops, the existing cut out is square but this cooktop is curved . In addition the measurements given on the template are from the widest part of the cooktop(the middle) meaning that gaps exist at the corners, which are curved. I had it installed anyway with the intent of having a template made to fit the opening and have the cooktop sit on the template. Found a fill plate made expressively for this function, priced at $120.00. Until I order and have it installed there is a 1/4 inch gap at the rear between the cooktop and the backsplash. Insofar as the appearance of the cooktop is concerned, my wife and I both love it. I wanted the unit in black but it is not available. Having cooked on downdraft before I am aware that the flame and heat is pulled toward the fan. On this unit there is a rubber boot, at the center grate, that prevent the draft from being so great . This allows for better concentration of heat under the utensil . There was a trade off in that the previous cooktop had a modular grill unit meaning we only had two eyes to cook on, I did not purchase the $350.00 replacement module. My wife really likes having four eyes WHICH are sized for cooking function/temp. I did research and almost went with another Jenn-air but the owner ratings swayed me to the Kenmore elite and I feel that I made the right choice.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very Happy - great cooktop

Very happy with this cooktop - it has been installed and in use for over 6 months and absolutely no problems. I love the 5 burners and I do not feel it is crowded. I also have not had any issues with the knobs - I was concerned about the placement and coming in contact with hot pans, this is not the case and has not been an issue. Knobs are also very durable.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Do not use Scratch sponges!!!

I read in the directions not to use a sponge that scratches, but my husband went behind my back and decided to clean the stove and now my brand new stove has scratches on it. Shouldn't stainless steel be stronger than this???

I would recommend this product to a friend.
