Finally replaced our smashed up cooktop with this new one.

Learned about Sears Outlet stores (awesome) and picked it up refurbished but still in the box for 380 vs MSRP 680.

Some cool stats about the new cooktop –

  • it’s stainless steel so that it won’t shatter like the last one
  • it has a one huge burner that outputs the gas flame at 14,200 BTUs (the largest burner on the previous stove only output around 9,000 BTUs)
  • Kenmore was listed by Consumer Reports as the 2nd best in terms of repairs
  • all 4 burner grill covers are even height, so that you can move pots and pans around the cooktop without having to first pick them up and risk spilling
