About - Kenmore 91312

The Kenmore 91312 is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the 91312 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.

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

Comment:
The setting panel collapsed into the stove body when using normally and shocked me resulting in a small burn on my finger and a powerless stove--when I called customer service they tried to sell me a $239 one year repair warranty--you have been warned!
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
