Kenmore 5-Burner Gas Grill
The Bottom Line
This is a full feature gas grill with side sear burner and infrared rotisserie burner (rotisserie kit not included). The side burner is a ceramic infrared sear burner for high temperature cooking. The 62, 000 BTUs of its main burners produce the high heat needed for this very large grill. This grill is built from low grade stainless steel. While it looks nice that appearance won't last.
At around $800USD (though the sale price is typically $700USD) this grill has a lot of competition from better quality grills and you would do well to look for those grills.

Guide Review - Kenmore 5-Burner Stainless Steel Model# 464224010
This model has been discontinued.
This is one of these big, shiny grills that look great on the showroom floor.
With infrared side burner, rotisserie burner and a huge cooking area this looks like the perfect grill for someone who wants to show off. Unfortunately the limited quality of the stainless steel and the thin materials used to construct this grill means it will not lost long and will lose its great appearance even faster.
If I were to go to all the expense of putting in an infrared rotisserie burner on a gas grill, especially one costing around $800USD, I would include the rotisserie kit (rod and forks). Unfortunately Sears (or Char-Broil) didn't include it with this grill so in addition to the full price of this grill (you can get it on sale for around $700 some of the time) you will have to pay another $35USD for the rotisserie kit (and another $30 for the propane tank). This is just one of the shortsighted thinking that goes into putting a big shiny gas grill on the floor or a Sears' showroom (or the floors of a lot of stores these days).
This Kenmore gas grill, built by Char-Broil in China has all the bells and whistles. You get a five burner grill with side sear burner, rotisserie burner, and a large enclosed cabinet. It's actually hard to think of what else could be added to this grill. Unfortunately to put all these features on this grill come at the cost of quality materials. If you don't believe me grab hold of the lid on the side burner unit. Lift and twist. See how it bends? That's the solid quality of this $800USD gas grill.See also:

Who makes sears Kenmore gas grills?
Sears makes sears Kenmore grills
Although Kenmore is a Sears branded name Sears doesn't really make anything. For years their appliances were made by Whirlpool and may still be manufactured by them. It would be nice to know who actually makes the Kenmore grills. It is highly unlikely that Sears manufactures them!
