Which of these 30" cooktops ?
Model Number: 45209 Brand: Kenmore Age: Less than 1 year
We've had a GE Profile 30" electric cooktop for 16 years. Last week, I opened a cabinet above it and a shelf support gave out, sending several glass jars on my head and onto the cooktop. Well, my head had proven to be far stronger
The cooktop is now cracked - smashed is probably a better description - and the glass top is no longer available. As much as I hate to throw away a perfectly functioning unit, it's time for it to go...
So, I am trying to pick a replacement. Don't want to pay more than $500-600. We cook every day, and I want something that heats up quickly, doesn't scratch up too easily, and is reliable. I don't care for any bells & whistles like touch controls, and I need a couple of large cooking surfaces - too many cooktops have a few small 6" coils and one decent sized coil.
So, I narrowed it to these two cooktops:
Kenmore 45209 at Sears - right price, two large elements, but no reviews other than the few on their site.
This one has plenty of reviews, which means some bad ones...
So far I am leaning towards Kenmore, but would really appreciate your input.
(I looked at GE but they don't really have shiny reviews, the Profile series is very expensive now, and they seem to like goofy burner arrangements).
See inside of your appliance - diagrams and part photos for virtually every model.
