Slide-in ranges have become popular because they controls on the front. They sit on top of the countertops and give your kitchen a built-in look without “breaking the bank” on wall ovens and cooktops.

The main advantage is seeing your backsplash without looking at the stoves back.

Electrolux Gas Slide-In Range

Freestanding ranges have finished sides and could be placed anywhere in the kitchen. They do not require counter tops on both sides to hide the unfinished sides.They also fit in a 30" space without cabinet modification. 

Freestanding Gas Range

Slide-ins are more custom looking and should be considered especially for new construction, but are harder for existing replacements. You will need some cabinet modification. (Read more about Slide-in vs. Freestanding Ranges here).

Comparison

Oven

KitchenAid is the biggest of the ovens at 6.5 cubic foot versus 5.6 (total) for Electrolux. Have a look at both:


Electrolux oven drawer

KitchenAid warming drawer

The drawer on the Electrolux can bake, whereas the KitchenAid is just a warmer.

Burners

The Electrolux has 18,000, 16,000, 9,500, 9,500 and 5,000 BTU burners. KitchenAid has 19,000, 15,000, 9,200, 8,000 and a 5,000 BTU. The difference is less than 2,000 BTU and is not substantial.

Cooking Modes

Electrolux offers several pre-programmed cycles like Perfect Turkey, Dehydrate for drying fruits and veggies and several automatic convection modes as well as proofing for breads.

KitchenAid has Convection Conversion, so you type in your recipe and hit conversion for the correct time and temperature in convection. They also have a steam cycle where you add water into a trough inside the oven for steam veggies. 

Reliability

Electrolux is one of the most reliable products (number 10) at Yale with a 18% service call percentage within the first year. KitchenAid is an average at roughly 27% making our list for most serviced brands at Yale

Which Should You Buy?

It really depends, because rebates and package incentives may sway the price in either direction.

The ranges are extremely close. The size of KitchenAid is bigger, but the functionality and reliability on the Electrolux should be considered.

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.
