Kenmore 95073 induction range

The Kenmore 95073 doesn't look much different than other stainless steel, electric ranges we've reviewed. What makes this model stand out is its price and induction cooktop. A range with this cooking technology usually comes with a $3,000 price tag, but Kenmore offers induction for $1,700, the lowest price we've seen so far for induction range.
