About - Kenmore 90112

The Kenmore 90112 is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the 90112 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.

Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects the ability of the lowest power element to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

Easy To Clean
Handle Falls off
Heats slowly
Time Display Disappears
Best Uses
We have a different model number, but the form factor is essentially the same, so my comments apply.<br />First, and most importantly, the oven has a horrible design flaw in the handle. The handle is only attache by two screws that thread into the plastic handle -- all the force of opening and closing the door goes against the handle, which loosens then falls off -- and breaks if your experience is ours. $70 to get a new one, with the same inherit fault. The rest of the issues are irritating but manageable. It takes over 20 minutes to heat. When the oven is on or the timer is used, the clock display disappears.
How long have you owned it:
