Introduction

Running over $2,000 on sale (MSRP $2,243), the Electrolux EI30EF55GS straddles the line between mid-end and high-end ranges. Unfortunately, this range reminds us that price and performance aren't always so correlated and while this was certainly a decent range, two grand seems excessive.

While its rangetop did exhibit a great temperature range and had no weak burners—all under twelve minutes to boil six cups of water—there weren't any effective power burners either.

The conventional oven definitely had some issues averaging the target temperatures, but the oven's broiler and convection mode had some of the best results we've ever seen.

This range seems to have very little that's just average about it, with some impressive aspects and some unimpressive ones. Before reading this review, think about what you need in a range. This may have it, or it may not.
