electrolux freestanding induction range EI30IF40LS installedYou can now expect to buy a fully featured induction range anywhere between $1,500 (after rebates) to $2,100. With premium models from $2,100-$2,500 and slide-ins from $1,800-3,000. As induction has become more affordable (and it will continue) manufacturers are becoming increasingly competitive.

Today, we are comparing two of the worlds largest companies, Electrolux and Samsung. We will be looking at Electrolux's brand new induction range against the Samsung. Electrolux is now marketing an induction range under $2,000 for the first time in their history.

Samsung

Samsung is the largest South Korean conglomerate corporation. The company has played a major role in South Korean economic development, politics, media and culture. In the United States, Samsung is widely associated with Samsung Electronics cell phones, computers, and televisions. Appliances are a very small part of Samsung’s overall portfolio. Samsung is widely known for producing full size laundry and refrigeration and strives to incorporate technological features into their products.

Electrolux

Electrolux is a European brand best known for producing high quality products with innovative technological features at an affordable price. Electrolux is the second largest manufacturer of household appliances in the world. Electrolux also owns Frigidaire, a well-known brand in the US market. Electrolux is widely known for its laundry and vacuum cleaners, but produces high quality cooking products and refrigeration as well.

What is Induction?

Induction is a magnetic heat technology that transfers heat directly to the pan. You will prefer induction to traditional electric or even gas cooking because it heats the pan quickly, has more precise temperature control, and is the most child safe cooking product.

Induction technology is 90% efficient compared to gas at 60% and electric at 55%. It is energy efficient because the cooktop transfers heat directly to the pan causing less residual heat. Induction is the safest cooking product on the market because it cannot be activated without sensing metal on the cooktop. For those who cannot vent outside, induction cooking is a great option with less residual heat than a gas cooktop.

Previously, induction cooking was only manufactured in the high-end luxury brands. Today induction is available from a number of brands like Frigidaire, Samsung, KitchenAid, Maytag, Whirlpool, GE, and Electrolux.

Samsung vs Electrolux

From purely features, you have to like the Samsung. Samsung offers a warming drawer for refreshing leftovers and/or keeping food warm for up to three hours. They have a couple other neat features like steam self clean and tri convection, or three fans for more even baking versus one. We have not tested the range as of this writing.

Electrolux has a few intangibles especially on the cooking surface. It is more powerful at 4,000 watts versus 3,700 for the Samsung, and has a bridge element connecting two burners for odd sized dishes. From a service perspective, Electrolux is more responsive to issues with fewer stock problems on parts. Of the two, for service, Electrolux is a better range.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
