Where to Buy
 

The Electrolux EW30GF65GS is rated highly by pros and users alike for its simmering, broiling and baking functions, though it's slower than some other ranges at bringing water to a boil. One expert reviewer praises this range highly for its quality and attention to details, such as the Luxury-Glide racks that slide smoothly on ball bearings and the quick preheat option for single-rack baking. Users also praise this range, especially the intuitive controls, adjustable burners and easy-glide racks. Their main complaint: The stainless-steel finish discolors and scratches easily. We saw a couple of other durability complaints as well, including rust and clogged burners. Although this Electrolux range is an excellent performer, the LG LRG3095ST (*Est. $1,500) gets equally good ratings and costs significantly less.

The Electrolux EW30GF65GS is included in range tests at ConsumerReports.org and earns a high overall grade from Good Housekeeping. We also found about 40 comments on the manufacturer's website. The J.D. Power and Associates' 2010 Home Appliance Study is useful for evaluating the performance of the Electrolux brand as a whole, though this specific model is not rated.
