Kenmore 72903 Stainless Steel Gas Range Review$1,199.99
Not the hottest oven we've reviewed.
The Kenmore 72903 looks a bit like it's in disguise. With the classic shape of a white freestanding range, it's dressed in stainless steel trimmed with black. Unfortunately, it's "stainlessness" is only in its look, as this oven is doesn't perform anywhere close to how it looks. If ovens were cars, and stainless steel ovens were convertibles, this oven would be a car that had the roof cut off by Cousin Joey with a Sawzall, and slapped with a higher pricetag at an MSRP of $1,199 (on sale for $1,049).
This oven does have some nice qualities, such as a very consistent convection oven and just sprints to the target temperature, limiting preheat time. We also liked the oval burner that can accommodate long stoveware or a griddle. Besides the existence of this burner, the rangetop is underpowered and under-performs, even with similar BTU/hr specs as some of its competitors. The oven on conventional mode also showed more fluctuation than we like.
