EW30DF65GS and C2S980SEMSS reliabality of dual fuel ranges
« on: October 09, 2008, 08:59:07 AM »
I am trying to decide which dual fuel range I want and I like both of these models (Electrolux and GE cafe)  I don't know about buying the Electrolux model because I can't find any reliability statistics and I know that this line was just introduced to the US this spring.   Do you have any advice?

Electrolux is the parent company of Frigidiare, so you have the same basic underwriters as with those appliances. They sold  only in Europe the past few decades, and are new to our market. After having reviewed a number of their products, I  have concluded they are a safe bet in todays market. You can look at some of their products here.

On the other hand, I discourage GE simply because their repair parts are  outrageous compared to  similar products on other brands.

A dual fuel stove would be ideal for hurricane alley. Top burners gas and oven electric. Nobody would bake with the power off and the house hot as heck anyway.
