electrolux powerful induction freestanding range EI30IF40LS boiling waterI used to cook on an electric range. Come dinner time first I would make sure to put a pot of water on the stove. Next, I would proceed to prepare the rest of my meal, going into the refrigerator to get ingredients, cutting vegetables, and perhaps a quick phone call to my parents before the water even started to boil.

If you choose to switch to induction cooking do not be fooled by your former cooking methods. You will no longer be able to put butter on the pan and walk away to collect ingredients from the refrigerator, induction heats your pans very quickly!

What is Induction?

In the past induction was only available in professional brands but today induction is manufactured in a wider array of configurations and prices. Many affordable luxury brands are now producing free standing induction ranges. A freestanding range is 30 inches wide and has a backguard. This style range is owned by 90% of the range owning population. If you have a traditional electric freestanding range and are looking to replace it I would highly recommend an induction range. This article will address the most powerful freestanding induction ranges.

To be completely transparent we do not carry any General Electric products.

Which is the most powerful?

It is difficult to assess the relative power of induction cooking products because induction cooktops are designed with either individually powered burners, or shared power burners.

Induction ranges with individually powered burners (Electrolux) are better for people who like to cook with multiple pans simultaneously because all burners will have a full range of power at the same time, it is also said that these induction products are more reliable than induction products with shared power burners.

The GE Profile, KitchenAid and Samsung ranges all share power between burners. Induction ranges sharing burner power on the cooktop are able to borrow watts from other burners not in use. The Samsung range is able to boast that it has a 4,600 watt power burner capability but only when the other burners on the cooktop are turned off and the power burner is borrowing watts from other burners. Therefore although on paper it appears that this is the most powerful induction range, it can never have a total burner output of 16,300 watts.

Which Range Would I Buy?

Although the Electrolux range does not appear to have the most power on paper, its individual powered burners make it the most powerful induction range in terms of total capability. Aside from power it has great technological features to take the guesswork out of cooking, a large capacity oven with telescopic racks, and all at a great price point.

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.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
