Sears Gets the Summer Cooking with Its Huge Selection of Innovative Outdoor Grilling Options

The Family-Friendly Stores Offer a Wide Variety of Ways to Help Every Chef "Fire Up the Grill"

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For all those who can't wait to start dining outdoors, Sears' extensive offerings of grills and cooking accessories have something for everyone. Dinner is an art form for true aficionados, and Sears provides all the components discriminating diners need to serve up an artfully prepared meal from the comfort of an outdoor living area. Families also like to move meals to the backyard as the weather warms, and Sears provides countless options to make it easy for moms, dads and children to enjoy their freshly cooked burgers in the comfort of their outdoor space.

Sears is always in the know on house-and-home trends, and this summer the hottest grill trend is the combo of stainless steel and color for a sleek and exciting style. The Kenmore 5-Burner Gas Grill is available in red or black, with a stainless steel lid and finishes. This grill is packed with extras that make it popular for those who really want to be able to prep the entire meal on one grill—it has an LED-lit control panel, a built-in ceramic rotisserie burner, a side burner and a slide-out tank tray.

Another popular movement is to make grilling even healthier—the Kenmore Steam & Grill is the perfect answer. Outdoor chefs will find not only a side burner but also a built-in steamer. The steamer is perfect for cooking veggies and shrimp and is a great way to take grilling to the next level while maintaining a healthy diet.

Along with the back-to-healthy craze is the back-to-basics school of grilling. Charcoal is never out of style—and in fact, hardcore grilling fans won't settle for anything other than the smoky flavor of charcoal cooking. To address this ever-popular trend, Sears offers top-of-the-line Weber grills and combination gas/charcoal grills.

And for consumers who don't want to wait for summer to grill, there's the hardtop lighted grillzebo. With the convenient grillzebo, the grill chef can be "indoors" in case of rain, can store tools on shelves in the grillzebo or entertain guests at the attached bar. Plus, LED lights in each of the four posts mean never having to scramble for light when the party runs into the evening.

"Grilling is truly a great summer pastime, whether it's whipping up a quick weekday meal or a Fourth of July bash," said Dev Mukherjee, president, Appliances, Seasonal & Toys, Sears Holdings. "Sears is the best place to buy your grill with exclusives like our Kenmore Steam & Grill."
