KitchenAid vs. Electrolux Gas Slide-in Ranges (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

September 24th, 2015 | 2 min. read

By Steve Sheinkopf

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.

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).

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.
