Buying guide for best Electrolux ranges

Last Updated September 2020

Electrolux is a well-known brand name in home appliances, and their line of stainless-steel ranges is second to none. Whether you’re in the market for an electric, gas, or a dual-fuel range, you can likely find an Electrolux model that meets your needs.

Electrolux offers excellent ranges with several options and styles. Whether you’re looking for a free-standing range or a built-in one, they have models with a variety of features, including warmer drawers, advanced controls, multiple self-cleaning options, and up to seven different cooking modes. While any Elecrolux range is a significant investment, you can expect their models to last for many years and cook thousands of meals.

Deciding which Electrolux range to get can be an intimidating task, especially since this is an appliance you will likely use for decades. Here at Best Reviews, we can help. We’ve already done the research on the different options and features. Keep on reading and we’ll walk you through them to assist you in deciding which ones are right for you.

Most Electrolux ranges come with the Perfect Taste temp probe, which allows you to accurately measure the temperature of your food without a thermometer.

Key considerations

Gas or electric

If your home doesn’t have a gas connection, adding one for a gas range can be prohibitively expensive. In that case, you will probably need to get an electric range. The only exception is if you’re doing a home remodel and adding gas is part of the redo. If you’re remodeling your kitchen or your home already has connections for both, you’ll have to decide what type of range you want. Both types have their advantages and disadvantages.

Electric

Electric stoves, including induction ranges, generally cost a bit more than gas ranges because of their additional electronics. However, Electrolux has made enormous strides in this area, and the cost differences between their electric and gas models are negligible. What Electrolux can’t control, however, is the price of electricity. Except in unusual circumstances, electricity is more expensive than gas, so an electric range will cost more in the long run than a gas range.

Gas

Electrolux gas ranges give you a near-instantaneous response when you increase or decrease the temperature. You can also use a gas stove for charring, toasting, and flambéing — an impossibility on an electric range. Whether you get an electric or gas stove should be dictated more by the type of cooking you’re doing than anything else.

There is one unfortunate aspect of gas stoves that can’t be avoided: open flames. Stray napkins or towels set too close to the burners, or just waved over them, can catch fire. An astounding 49% of all home fires start in the kitchen, so this safety aspect is one you really can’t ignore.

Dual-fuel

Gas is great for cooking on the stovetop, but many people prefer a convection oven for roasting and baking. Electrolux dual-fuel ranges offer gas burners on top and electric ovens below, giving you the perfect combination to suit your style in the kitchen. As you might imagine, these are generally more expensive, but depending on your needs, they may be worthwhile.

Basic and reliable

If you need a modern range with a modern aesthetic, this popular model is an excellent choice. Its six cooking modes and efficiency make it a versatile and cost-effective model that works well for any kitchen.

Built-in or freestanding

Freestanding ranges were the norm for many years, but in recent decades, built-in ranges have taken over the market. If you’re replacing a built-in range, your only real choice is another built-in. If you didn’t have a previous built-in or you’re remodeling your kitchen, you can get a free-standing model. Fortunately, electrolux carries both. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a style.

Available space

Naturally, the available space will be important. Get out a tape measure and find out how much space you have for the stove to fit into. An accurate measurement to the nearest eighth of an inch is recommended.

Counter top height

If you’re getting a built-in, you need to make sure it is level with the height of the existing countertop. Get out your trusty tape measure once again and find out how high it is, then purchase accordingly.

EXPERT TIP

Many retailers will haul away your old range to facilities for recycling. When buying online, you’ll have to arrange the disposal yourself.

Features

Top of the range

Electrolux offers three types of surfaces on their kitchen ranges.

Smooth

Whether it uses electric burners or an induction method, the entire top of the range is one continuous, smooth surface. This makes cleaning it every easy. It also makes it easy to slide pans from one burner to another without any lifting.

Grates

Gas ranges require an iron grate to support the pots and pans over the flame. Normally, they are 1 to 2 inches higher than the rest of the stovetop.

Full-grate

Electrolux has several gas ranges that extend the grate over the full surface of the stove. This allows you to maneuver pots from burner to burner without lifting them, just like a smooth top range.

Oven capacity

If you like to cook whole turkeys and huge roasts, you need lots of room in the oven. Electrolux has large-capacity ovens to fit every need, with most of them ranging from 4.5 to 4.6 cubic feet in size.

Sealed burners

Some electrolux gas ranges feature sealed burners. “Sealed burner” is a bit of a misnomer. The burner isn’t truly sealed. Instead, there is a small central plate covering the burner components and the flames come up around the sides of the plate. The biggest advantage of sealed burners is the ease and convenience of cleaning. The flat surface of the plate catches anything that drops down from the pots and pans instead of becoming mired on the burner elements.

Self-cleaning options

There aren’t many tasks more unpleasant than cleaning an oven. Fortunately, most Electrolux ranges have self-cleaning options for a slightly higher price.

Controls and displays

Digital display
Digital displays are de rigueur these days. Electrolux offers them on all the models we looked at.

Touch screens
Touch screen controls on our smartphones have accustomed people to using touch screen controls on other devices too. As a result, some Electrolux models come with modernistic touch screen controls. The only disadvantage is that during cleaning, wiping a cloth over the screen may inadvertently activate something.

Knobs
There’s something innately satisfying about the tactile sensation of turning a knob and watching the stove come or the gas burners burst into flame with a reassuring whoosh. Electrolux has plenty of ranges with knobs.

Warming drawers

This is a nice feature that Electrolux has included on some of their ranges. A warming drawer will keep your food warm and ready to serve. You won’t have to set your pots and pans on the counter and cover them to keep the food warm. A warming drawer keeps all your prepared food in one place. This is a feature whose convenience is well worth the price.

DID YOU KNOW?

Glass, ceramic, aluminum, copper, and glass cookware will not work on induction ranges.

Electrolux range prices

Inexpensive: The low price range for Electrolux ranges starts around $1000 up to about $2000. Despite the low price, you’ll still see plenty of features, like warming drawers, self-cleaning options, digital displays, and easy-to-grasp knobs.

Mid-range: Mid-range electrolux ranges cost from $2,000 to $3,000. These ranges have dual digital and knob controls, sealed gas burners, full-surface grates, self-cleaning options, and multiple cooking modes.

Expensive: High-end ranges from Electrolux ranges start at $3,000 and go up from there. In addition to all the other features on the lower-priced models, these higher-priced models also have dual-fuel capabilities, large central burners, and extended options for both self-cleaning and cooking.

Low-priced yet versatile

This affordable electric range features a smooth five-burner cooktop and numerous other features found in Electrolux’s more expensive models. Its slightly larger oven size makes cooking larger meals easy.

Tips

  • An oven should have at least five or more rack positions to cover all the possible cooking options.
  • The default factory setting on Electrolux warmer drawers is 170ºF. You can change it yourself if you like, but never lower than 150ºF and never higher than 190ºF.
  • If you need to remove the warmer drawer for any reason, turn off the power at the circuit breaker. Pull out the drawer to its fully opened position. Pull up on the right-hand glide lever, push down on the left-hand glide lever, and then pull the drawer out of the range.
Electrolux recommends washing the grates in the dishwasher and coating them with a thin layer of cooking oil before putting them in the oven for 10 minutes at 350ºF.

FAQ

Q. Why is the flame on my Electrolux range orange instead of blue?
A.
This is usually due to dust in the gas line. The particles should burn away in a few minutes. If you live in a coastal area, it could be caused by salt in the air.
 

Q. What kind of pots and pans should I use with my Electrolux induction range?
A.
Only use cast iron, stainless steel, or pots and pans made especially for induction ranges.
 

Q. How do I register my Electrolux range?
A.
Call 1-877-4 ELECTROLUX, visit their website, or fill out the registration card and drop it in the mail.
