In 1927, Kenmore first appeared on a Sears laundry appliance, an agitator type, wringer washing machine. By 1936, Sears had already sold 1 million Kenmore laundry items. Its popularity hasn’t slipped. Today, nearly one in every three American homes contains a Kenmore appliance. You can see why, when you look at Kenmore’s history. The Kenmore brand boasts a long list of firsts in automatic appliances, energy efficiency, and stylish, modern designs.
With nearly 99 percent of urban homes wired for electricity by the end of the 1920s, Sears recognized the huge untapped market in household appliances. To reach this market Sears offered a wide assortment of Kenmore appliances.
Over the decades new Kenmore products reflected consumer demand. Kenmore dishwashers, garbage disposals, and trash compactors joined ranges, washing machines and dryers. Kenmore added countertop appliances to the product mix. The Kenmore product line included everything from sunlamps, and electric baby bottle sterilizers, to vacuum cleaners, and electric blankets. Sears also sold a Kenmore 3-piece barber set and hair clippers, and a Lady Kenmore electric shaver. In 1977 Sears put the Kenmore brand name on refrigerators.
