Cook for a Crowd with the Kenmore Gas Grill with Oven
by Kathie Robitz
Summertime is party time, and there’s no better way to entertain a crowd than with a big backyard bash. Whether it’s for a holiday, a family reunion or a block party, great food prepared on a gas grill is always on the outdoor entertaining menu. And while most of us love a mouth-watering burger, today’s outdoor celebrations often call for more sophisticated fare ─ and the type of equipment required to prepare it.
The Kenmore Gas Grill with Oven lets you prepare a complete meal with all the trimmings. It offers a generous grilling surface, with a swing-out warming rack, for putting a delicious char on everything from meats to poultry, fish, vegetables and fruit. In addition to the convenience of a side burner for heating soups, sides and sauces, there’s an oven compartment where you can bake everything from beans to brownies, even while you’re grilling.
This all-in-one outdoor appliance is like having a high-end indoor range outdoors. Don’t want to heat up the house, or need an extra oven when you’re expecting a crowd? Heat appetizers or roast a chicken right on your patio; you can use the grill’s oven even when you’re not grilling. The oven’s pull-out rack lets you easily access the food you’re cooking with the assist of a barbecue oven mitt.
