Excellent Induction Range
By A. Forward
This is just a review of the stove itself, I didn’t buy it here.
If you’re looking for an induction stove, this is the probably the best looking and sleekest stove you can buy (in slide-in range configuration). I love the all black sleek look. The control panel only lights up when you first touch the panel to “wake” it up. The stove top and control panel is all black except for the clock which looks really sleek. It has a power boil feature which boils a quart of water in 90 seconds (I tested it). All of the other thoughtful touches like ball bearing smooth gliding oven racks, built in temperature probe (for cooking turkeys), and soft fading oven light (after you shut the door – I know big woop, but it looks cool), makes you wonder why no one else thought of these things. Most other stove oven’s have the racks still grinding against the oven wall. The oven racks on the Electrolux (except for one rack) have the “luxury” glide racks which glide like nice cabinet drawers. Overall, I love this stove. I never thought I would be excited about a stove.
The only troubles I ran into with the stove was during installation.
There didn’t seem like an easy way to get the stove off the wood crate. My kitchen is relatively small and there aren’t very many places to grab the stove to lift it off the wood crate.
Most stores only sell 6′ 50 amp range cords. If you buy this stove, I would recommend looking for a 4′ 50 amp range cord because 6′ (plus the size of the wires for 50 amps) is very stiff. I had some trouble getting the stove pushed up against the wall all the way no matter how much I tried to tie up with zip ties excess wire before pushing it back. Four feet 50 amp cords are a little harder to find so you may have to look around.
The back panel where the cord plugs in is flimsy. I’m guessing they don’t expect you to open and close the back panel very often. The back panel door which covers the nuts to connect the cord is simply a piece of sheet metal you bend (yes BEND) backwards to expose the nuts. If you bend it back shut and then back open again, it’s noticeably looser. One more bend back and forth and it breaks off. So why was I opening and closing it so many times, you ask? See the previous paragraph. I originally bought a 6′ cord and had trouble getting the stove up against the wall. So I had to swap out the cord for a shorter one.
If you’re on the fence about induction technology, read below:
Originally I had an old GE electric coil range and I wanted switch over to gas because of all the advantages (instant heat, and instant on/off (plus my wife hated electric). I came across induction stove tops which I thought was intriguing.
- Boils water (or heats anything) faster than any gas or reg electric stove.
- Smooth glass surface is easy to clean, especially since it doesn’t get hot (only heat radiating back from cookware to stove).
- Probably safer with young kids since the surface doesn’t get hot (less chance of fires and burns).
- Stove only heats cookware when cookware is placed on the stove.
- Induction is 70% more efficient than gas, and 20% more than reg electric (so they claim). I’m guessing that’s because all the heat goes straight to the cookware and the only wasted heat is the heat radiating off the cookware not going to your food. Think of it as microwave for your cookware. Microwaves heat the food and not the cookware. Induction stoves, heats only the cookware. There’s no heat wasted coming off the side of an open flame or electric coil.
- Need magnetic pans. So if you have aluminum or copper bottom pot/pan, it won’t work. Test your cookware by using a magnet on the bottom. If the magnet sticks, it will work.
- Glass surface might scratch if you drag cookware across it or drop something on it.
Do searches for induction stove on youtube.com for demo of induction stoves.

This is a great range
By G. Nolan
I came very close to not purchasing this range due to the lack of reviews, new technology and price. Now that I have it, I realise that would have been a mistake. I do remodels for a living and always try to buy the best construction tools I can. This is a great tool that will make you a better crafts-person.
So how fast is it you might ask. We have a very powerful microwave (remember I buy good tools). In a direct heat off the range wins the prize. It is faster than the microwave every time.
So is it better than gas you might ask. I believe it is. The response time is immediate whether your raising the heat or lowering it. It has incremental heat controls for precision. Unlike gas, the cook-top is smooth and cleans easily. Also, I like the safety of electric over gas. I almost put gas in which would have meant blowing holes in my basement ceiling then patching and repainting. I am glad I did not have to go there.
So is it really better at cooking you might ask. We fancy ourselves as pretty good cooks and we cook everyday. The first time I made a sauce, I kept calling my wife over because the sauce was coming out so amazing. I could not believe a good tool could make so much difference. Now every time I make a sauce or gravy I still get a thrill. I am not sure why there is such a big difference but there is. I think it has to do with lag time. With this tool there is no lag time. When you turn the heat up/down the response is immediate. It is the difference between driving a delivery van and a Mazaratti GT.
So how about build quality you might ask. The build quality seems great. The ovens heat up very quickly, they maintain the right temperature, and they bake/cook evenly. The oven racks and bottom oven drawer glide easily rather than bumping along a rail and track. The electronics give me many options with timed cooking, delay modes, sabbath modes, convection modes, and programed cooking saved into memory. Having said all that, I did take out the five year extended warranty. Remember, I was uneasy about this range. Although we have had it for three months and have had several dinner parties I probably would still take out the extended warranty yet I am the type of person that would rarely ever do so. I did read some reviews where people had some problems. That has not been my experience.
So would I buy this tool again you might ask. Come on now. Do you really need to ask?

front of stove is coming apart
I have had the stove for a week now and it seems that the front of the stove is separating from the top. there is now a 1/4 to 1/2 inch space on both sides of the stove (where it meets the countertop). It has dropped so much I can’t open the drawers on either side of the stove.
I had the technician out here and he spent 2 hours trying to repair. He called another technician who actually owned the same stove and the technician/owner was experiencing the same problem and sent photos of his stove to confirm the problem. I went back to the showroom to look at the model – and this stove was beginning to do the same thing.
So far no word from the store or Electrolux about what they are going to do about this. Anybody else notice this issue?
