Kenmore: Attractive Grills, Over Priced, Some Quality Issues

 

       When a gas grill can almost always be found on sale, it’s never a good sign.  There are many reasons for grills to be put on sale, but more often than not it is due to slow sales, over pricing, or a bad reputation.  Kenmore grills are one such brand that are almost always on sale.  

 

      Kenmore has long been known as a leader in the home appliance marketplace. They made their first washing machine in 1927 and have been doing it well ever. They make great refrigerators, washing machines, and dishwashers.  So what’s with their line of gas grills?  It’s simple, they don’t make them. Kenmore grills are made primarily by Char-broil and other Chinese manufacturers.  In fact several Kenmore grills are nearly identical to their Char-broil counterparts. 

 

      Kenmore grills come in two main categories: Kenmore and Kenmore Elite.  The Kenmore Elite are higher quality and better performing grills, but come at a higher price.  The current lineup is priced from 199 to 1199 dollars.  Kenmore offers a wide variety of grills, with sizes ranging from 596 to 832 square inches and 49,000 to 72,000 BTU’s. 

 

      Kenmore grills have several things going for them.  They’re nearly all feature packed, high curb appeal grills, and are often on sale.  For many shoppers this is enough to open their wallets at their local Sears.  On the other hand, these grills are made from low quality components and are prone to rusting.  Plus, uneven heating, low power outputs, and ultra thin materials on the lower priced models leaves consumers with only the higher priced Elite series.  Luckily, however, parts are easy to get on all Kenmore grills and Sears offers great service and a good warranty reputation.



      Overall, while Kenmore does have some acceptable models, the overall lineup is of low quality and overpriced.  Even though their grills are usually on sale, and offer some great looking models, there are better options to be had at similar prices.
