The KERA205P features a True Convection Oven with a dedicated heating element, located around the fan in the back of the oven, in addition to the usual top and bottom elements. The T.H.E convection oven element is hidden by a baffle to help provide more even temperature management by channeling the air drawn in by the fan past the heating element and back into the oven.

  • The self-cleaning system with soil level/time selection automatically cleans your oven, and eliminates scrubbing and fumes. Plus, an automatic door lock secures the door during the self-clean cycle.
  • The CleanBake™ Hidden Element provides more evenly balanced heat distribution by warming both the bottom & the sides of the oven cavity, resulting in better baking performance.
  • Because it is hidden from view by the porcelain oven cavity, the bake element is protected from spills & drips that fall to the bottom of the oven.
  • The True Convection cooking system with a Third Hidden Element (T.H.E.™) utilizes both a rear element and a rear fan to circulate preheated air around the oven cavity for faster and more even cooking results than conventional cooking.
  • Our EasyConvect™ Conversion System offers you professional, even results every time. You simply enter your conventional cooking time and temperature, and the oven makes the precise conversion.
  • Maxi and econo thermal broiler settings feature two broiling elements so that you can choose the right setting for your needs.
  • The inner (econo) element can be used for smaller portions, while the inner and outer (maxi) feature is used when broiling an entire pan of food. Both are adjustable temperatures.
  • The Sabbath mode feature makes it possible to use the range on the Sabbath and other religious holidays without having to turn it on. Tones, lights and error messages are over-ridden, and a set temperature can be maintained for extended periods of time.

Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Well, Looks Poor I ordered this from a picture on the internet. When it arrived I was so disappointed. The stainless steel on the control top is a different shade than the body. It looks like gray painted metal. The stainless on the oven and bottom drawer is much nicer. My wife calls it the playschool oven because of how it looks. It works fine with the exception of it taking a bit longer to boil water than I would like. Would be a much better oven with a nicer looking control top. 11/24/08
Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy with it I've been using this range for 6 years. The standout feature is the cooktop, which is excellent. I'm impressed that the ceramic glass technology is as controllable as gas and unlike the traditional coiled electric cooktops. However, it isn't as easy to clean as I would have liked: any spills immediately "bake on" and you need to wait until everything is cool before removing it. The oven has been good and the convection conversion feature is useful. I've managed to spill liquid between the panes of the oven door glass and that has definitely detracted from the look. I'm not sure how I would clean this but I imagine I would need to take the door apart. No reliability issues - it has worked well. 11/3/12
