      Our old wall oven went bad after a lightning strike so we decided to go shopping for another. This Kenmore model was on sale at the local naval exchange for $658 after a 15% discount and $50 delivery fee. I would rather have had a model with turnable knobs but this was the only one that would fit into our available space and budget.

      It has a smooth glass control panel with push button controls. You can’t control or check on the temperature as easily

      with these as with knobs.

      As far as cooking goes it has performed well, holding an accurate and constant temperature when baking or broiling. My mother and I do a great deal of cooking so we use the oven daily.

      We often cook for large crowds and for extended periods of time. This oven does not do convection cooking, a function that allows for cooking several items at once.

      I miss being able to do that especially around the holidays. It has a warm and ...

      • hold function, is self cleaning, and has two different timer functions.

        One will cut the oven off after a set period of time and the other will simply sound a beeper when over. There is a delay function you can use to start cooking or self cleaning at a set future time.

        We have had some problems with this oven since we got it some 5 months ago. The door will spring back close unless you open it fully to the down position.

        This is

        dangerous and my mother has been burned by it once. There is a vent on the right side over the door and hot fluid will shoot out of it when the door is shut after cooking something for a long time.

        The steam that escapes through that vent condenses and when the door springs shut, hot liquid will spit out onto your arm. The repair service is coming out to check on the oven but we will probably return it due to these danger factors.
