My Kenmore oven is a good oven, especially the cook top. I had a hard time getting used to oven part. It seems to be off on the temperature, I always have to drop the suggested temperature on foods about 15 degrees. The cooktop is great. The back left eye has a simmer select button, this makes it easy to cook stews, soups and other types of food that require simmering to make it taste perfect. It also has a warming eye in the back center, I try to cook beans first and then keep them on this eye until everything else is done. It keeps me from having to watch a bunch of pots and eventually burn something. I would recommend this oven to someone who just needs an oven not someone that likes to bake cakes, special items or make large meals a lot. The stove top works great but the oven seems to work right when it wants to.
