Summary: We had our our Electrolux Dual Fuel Slide in for almost 4 years and I would have raved about it. However 2 weeks ago in the middle of the night I heard a bang and went downstairs to investigate. My kitchen was filled with smoke. I evacuated my house and called 911. The stove/oven had been off all day but an electrical fire had started in the wires in the back of the oven. It had burned through the metal backing and scorched up the back of the wall on the backsplash.
Excerpt: OVEN LIGHT BULBS go out often and are difficult to change(poor design) OVEN BAKE: takes too long to reach desired temperature. BROILING ELEMENT works fine. STAINLESS STEEL is too soft, consequently scratches EASILY. CLEANING the stove-top not easy. Even just boiling water requires a WIPE-DOWN.. One BURNER KNOB is broken because of POOR DESIGN !!! (MOST PRICEY RANGE I HAVE EVER PURCHASED WITH BIG REGRETS).
Summary: After two year this range continues to far exceed my expectations! Performs beautifully, The cook top cleans up easier than any appliance I own! I have used many of the deluxe features (ie, bread proofing, temperature probe, roasting/baking) and all have performed well. Glass topped control panel cleans easily and seems robust.
Excerpt: I wish there was more heat from the burners. I tend to use only the largest one (right front) because it has the most heat. Very difficult to bring something to a boil in a hurry with any of the others, however, that makes them perfect for simmering and keeping things warm. I love he smaller oven on the bottom to make small items (pizza, etc) instead of heating up the large oven...which is very roomy!
Excerpt: While it looks nice, this stove has been a huge let down. For the multiple thousands of dollars spent on it, in about a year, only the gas top is currently working. The oven shuts itself off and displays an F15 error which after Googling appears to be something that has happened to many other disappointed Electrolux customers. We are now waiting for the repairman to come back for the fourth time in hopes to fix it.
Excerpt: This range is great, however buyers should be advised to carefully check a real model in the store and not rely on the specification sheet that is normally provided. The spec sheet is incomplete and contains misleading instructions which, if followed, will not allow the range to fit as advertised in a standard 24-inch deep cabinet.
Excerpt: I purchased this range after researching several brands and thought this one was the best choice even though it was a bit pricey. The first time I used the min/max burner, the glass cap turned black with soot. After the repairperson checked out the range, it was found to be inoperable as the oven was also warped and burner could not be adjusted. The range was replaced with a 2nd one and still have the burner problem.
Excerpt: When we remodeled our kitchen two years ago, we searched for slide-in ranges for features and design and selected this Electrolux. By the middle of the year, one of the digital numbers had gone out and I had to have a repair man - FORTUNATELY, I had purchased the extended warranty. Now, at Christmas 2010 (convenient time), the temperature is not holding in the oven.
Summary: We could not be more pleased. I was initially concerned about the price but The quality of materials and design features is far more than I expected. The SS top is so easy to keep clean -- better than ceramic. The lower drawer oven/warmer really works as both, and heats up fast. The sliding shelves are more that a gimmick and now I would never be without. The convection is the best I have ever used and extremely uniform and efficient.
