Have you ever seen dear old Dad watching one of those competitive cooking shows on the food channels? Chances are, he’s been taking mental notes and would love the opportunity to create a culinary masterpiece like the pros do… if only he had pro-quality equipment.

Well, now’s your chance to make his gourmet dreams come true, with Kenmore appliances designed to elevate the home-chef experience.

Kenmore Ranges – Whether he prefers cooking with gas or easy-cleaning smooth-top electric, Kenmore’s freestanding ranges offer premium features like True Convection ovens for fast preheating and even baking and roasting, Air Fry mode, time-saving Turbo Boil® burner, and fingerprint-resistant stainless finish.

Kenmore Immersion Blender – The secret weapon in any fully equipped kitchen, a quality immersion blender makes quick work of blending and pureeing his favorite ingredients, with very little cleanup. And nothing makes better (or easier!) deliciously healthy smoothies from fresh fruits & veggies! Our powerful 400-watt model comes with durable stainless steel quad blades, food chopper, blending rod, whisk attachment and a 700 ml see-thru beaker with lid.

Kenmore Elite 10-Piece Stainless Cookware Set – Remember those competitive cooking shows we mentioned earlier? Guess what those hot-shot cooks are all using when the heat is on: heavy-gauge, solid stainless steel pots and pans that work great with any type of cooktop element or burner. Just like our pro-quality Kenmore Elite set. Bonus: we include heat-resistant glass lids so you can easily monitor what’s cooking with just a glance.

Kenmore Non-Stick Electric Skillet

This one-pot wonder with vented tempered glass lid makes it so easy to cook just about anything. It can do from crab cakes to stews, but breakfast is its time to really shine! Pancakes, bacon, eggs, sausage patties, frittatas… Dad can whip up all your breakfast favorites with one-pot simplicity and nearly effortless cleanup.

Kenmore Programmable 12-Cup Coffee Maker

The perfect gift for the serious coffee enthusiast, this coffee maker uses state-of-the-art Aroma Control technology to steep the grounds for extra-rich flavor. And a replaceable charcoal filter removes impurities from the water before brewing, because fresh, clean water makes the very best coffee!

Kenmore Griddle / Pizza Pan

This heavy-duty, 100% cast iron favorite has so many uses, the big guy might just lose count. Its flat, smooth 14-inch diameter surface is ideal for baking homemade pizzas anytime, and it works just as well as a stove-top griddle or a flat-top surface for the grill.
