Summary: I didn't buy my Electrolux Slide-In dual fuel convection range thru Amazon. I bought a Sears Elite dual fuel range. But it was made by Electrolux. No matter what model you are looking at, you need to find out if the oven light is an old fashioned appliance bulb, or the new halogen bulb. In every model I've looked at since the oven bulbs in mine burned out, they have all been the halogen type.
Be very careful before you buy this one----something they don't tell you.

Summary: First off I'm not positive this is the exact model of range that we have---I can't find any model numbers on our range as I prepare to write this review----so check these facts against what you are about to buy. We have never had a gas range before----so didn't know enough to check some things about this one before we bought it. Of course the salesman told us it was top of the line---best quality product we could buy. MAYBE NOT.
Summary: We bought this range for a re-model as a replacement for a 30" Viking gas range; we loved the Viking's burners but hated the gas oven. With the Electrolux it is just the opposite; love the oven, hate the burners. We use propane so I know they're not going to be as hot as nat. gas, but these things are ridiculous. Compared to the Viking, these burners are under-powered and lack adjustment.
Summary: We purchased this dual fuel oven in 2008. The wave top is cool looking, but we are already having to replace the board that controls it. It started by the LED lights that seemed to burn out so you could not read the numbers. Then the oven automatically locked itself and we cannot get into it. For only being 2 years old, Electrolux offered no sympathy nor care. Their customer support is lacking.
Summary: We bought this range two years ago, when we sold our house of twenty years and moved. I am a fairly serious cook, and just over 60. We bought this with the idea that this was it: a top of the line tool, versatile and durable, a lasting enhancement to our kitchen. And, unless we win the lottery, the last chance to get a high-end range.
