Product Description

Kenmore Elite 36" Induction Cooktop - Culinary Innovation

Revolutionize the way you make dinner with the Kenmore Elite 36" induction cooktop 3920. Featuring super-fast heating times, a pan detection feature and automatic shut-off; this induction cooktop is as functional as it is stylish. High-tech induction provides more responsive cooking by producing a magnetic field that heats the pan instead of the cooktop, saving energy and making it easier to clean spills. Bring your kitchen into the 21st century with the Kenmore Elite induction cooktop.

  • Enjoy the fastest, most flexible surface cooking available - induction delivers faster, more responsive cooking with near instantaneous temperature changes. It works by producing a magnetic field which heats the pan instead of the cooktop making spills much easier to clean-up off the cool cooktop surface
  • Enjoy super fast heating times using less energy - induction cooktop features Power Boost to let you go from a low simmer to a rolling boil twice as fast as gas or electric cooktops
  • Use the left side as two independent elements or as a bridge with a griddle
  • Gain more control over your cooktop - The Electronic Surface Element Controls (ESEC) allow each element to go from the lowest of simmer settings to highest of power settings and since the controls are digital the exact setting can be duplicated anytime
  • Always have the peace of mind your cooktop has turned off - thie pan detection feature only engages the element when a metal pan is present on the burner and the entire cooktop shuts off automaically after 12 hours of being left on
  • 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
  • Smart element provides 4,800W of power but also avoids wasting energy by sensing small pots or pans and only feeds current to one of its two elements

*Kenmore Elite received the highest numerical score for ranges, cooktops and ovens in the proprietary J.D. Power 2013 Kitchen Appliance StudySM. Study based on 12,497 total responses measuring 21 ranges, cooktops and oven brands and measures opinions of consumers about their ranges, cooktops and oven obtained new in the past 24 months. Proprietary study results are based on experiences and perceptions of consumers surveyed in January-February 2013. Your experiences may vary. Visit jdpower.com.

Wonderful way to cook!

Now that we have gotten through the 'learning curve', we can rave about induction cooking. Keeps the heat in the pot, not in the kitchen. Fast! Temp adjustment faster than gas. Easy to clean. If there is any drawback, it would be that you can accidently change the cooking temp by brushing across the controls. Some people have complained that their pots scratch the surface. We got a cut-to-fit oven liner, made a pot-sized circle, and put our rough-bottomed pot on it to cook. Our old cast iron works well on it, but we did have to invest in new saucepans. The warm/hold setting keeps food at a good eating temperature. So far, we are very happy with it!

Still not sure if I like it!
I have owned this product for 2 months. After investing in stainless steel and cast iron pots and pans, I was ready to start cooking. Overall I like the stove top but I am just struggling with everything sticking to the pan. Over easy eggs are a thing of the past! Everything sticks to these pans. I made veal Marsala today and they stuck to the pan... I have used the coconut oil to prepare all my pans but everything still sticks. I have to scrub endlessly to clean my pans. maybe I need more practice but so far if I could switch out to another cook top I would.

don't waste your money

We bought everything Kenmore Elite for our newly build house. 4 month later our oven/microwave combo failed (could not be fixed so we are getting a replacement). 3 more month later our cooktop failed. Now we are working with Sears to fix it. The Induction part of cooktop is great but I would go with a different brand next time. Sears team is good overall on trying to get it fixed. Definitely overpriced items with very poor quality .
