Sears Complaint - Weigh your options carefully
When shopping for a new stove last year I went with customer reviews, consumer reports, and which was top rated at the time. I purchased the sleek stainless steel Kenmore 30" electric range from Sears. Model 7909641340...It has functioned great so far, however, the construction of the door is less than desirable. The glass is double plated, one piece on the inside of the door, the other on the outside with a space between. The space is vented through slits along the top of the door so that the glass "does not shatter." Understandable, yet while you cook or clean you have to be extremely careful to never allow anything to drip through door slots because you can never get to it to clean. Lets be honest, we purchase these stainless steal appliances for their look as much their function, when you have grease, grim, and dirt you can't clean from the door that is always visible, the aesthetics go right out the window. If you wish to dismantle the door you can have sears repair service do this for anywhere between $70-100 and then additional for labor... talking 200.00 bucks.
So, before running out and buying, consider the inconvenient construction of this unit.
