Summary: Ours is (was) a nice shiny Stainless steel 1200 Watt top of the line Electrolux Microwave built in with fan vented to the outside. We bought it along with a top of the line Electrolux ($1200) Dishwasher and a $2600 dual fuel Electrolux Gas/Electric range. We bought them from RC Willey in Orem, Utah on the advise of the salesman that we were getting the very best and top quality of anything out there.
Summary: This microwave is very loud, two went out on me in a month. The magnetrons are bad. Can't see the buttons, noisy, very loud exhaust fans, interior light is very dim, hardly any chime to hear when item is done, no backlight to see buttons, the magnetron is very loud and will fail. More than 80% of these units fail within 16 months, etc. Very bad make. Don't buy. Please do research online and see for yourself. Not worth the money at all.
Pros: Attractive Design
Cons: Hard To See Display, Heats Unevenly, Noisy, Unreliable
Summary: The worst microwave I ever bought. I had this microwave for a year and it broke down on me 5 times! I had to deal with Electrolux over and over again and they refuse to exchange it for new one. Every single time it broke down on me they would send somebody to fix it. In the matter of three months after repair, same part was broken again. So finally, I got it exchange in January of this year for new unit. Guess what, broke down again, after 4 months and it is same part.
Summary: This is the second unit we've had in 8 months and it still doesn't act right. The magnatron failed the first time now it just seems like there's a problem with the internal motor or fan. It's terrible, listen to the other reviews, I wish I had.
Pros: style, cooking options
Cons: Low quality, Not durable, poor design, poor function
Summary: I have had this microwave for over a month. It replaces a KitchenAid that was on its second magnatron in less than two years. The Electrolux is very stylish as are all their appliances. It has nice features, which I expected, but it is also very quiet and very efficient. It is installed over my Electrolux range which I have had for three years--which replaced a troubled KitchenAid.
Summary: After dealing with as substandard microwave for years we finally purchased this model. Could not be happier! It matches our other appliances very nicely. Lowes installed the microwave in less than an hour. Very quiet as well. You can not go wrong with this model.
