Ad says 1974....looks more like '80-85 to me but what do I know? I know it needs some cosmetic work and $120 is on the high side.

Smooth Top Range

If in fact is is from 1974, it wouldn't be Ceran. More like a Corning Top. A world of difference in performance between the two.

Ceran vs. Corning

funktionalart's profile picture do the two differ, anyway? Corning no good?? I'm curious to know. I've an 80s JennAir which did come with that same type white cooking surface cartridge (which I sold off before I ever even used it). It even had the same decorative pattern on the burner locations. I opted to keep the solid hob cartridges instead.

This model I remember.

It was Sears' answer to the GE Versatronic.

Having a fair amount of familiarity with Sears' ranges of that period, I can only say this:

You don't want it.

It wasn't exactly world-class when it was new, it was not as substantial as other brands and if you need parts for it, what's left of Sears will laugh at you.

I absolutely don't want the thing....way, way, WAY too happy with my range (and I have this lifelong policy of "No Wards, No Sears"). Thought I'd post it up here just in case there were any Kenmore completists....cannot recall the last time I saw one of these things in a Kenmore badge.

A Kenmore range/microwave combo.  Pretty rare to see still running around loose this far out of warranty.

I remember them from Sears.  They were HIGH dollar.  I never had one at home.

There is a cooktop at a local Goodwill with that top. It says Corning on it.

I am still laughing!

You have quite a gift for understatement, my friend.
