Conclusion

Clearly, this is an odd oven. As a borderline luxury brand with all that European flair, the Electrolux entered our domain with expectations as high as its $2,000+ price tag, on sale.

The performance results were downright bizarre. For half the criteria, we saw a work of engineering genius worthy of our highest praise: the broiler, the convection oven, the precision at 350°F, the rangetop temperature range. But for the other half, we saw ineptitude as the oven had trouble hitting the right temperature and staying there for most settings, and the boiling results were less than impressive.

Unfortunately, we don't think this is a particularly good use whatever budget the perspective buyer has assigned for their kitchen. If this range were half the price, we would give it a sitting golf clap and remarked that if your use matches up with the EI30EF55GS's fortes, then go forth and buy this oven. But until then, our standards remain as high as the price.
