Check List for Purchasing a Range by Jesse Bluma

Check List for Purchasing a Range

Electrolux was founded in 1919 in Sweden.  Their first product was a vacuum and have since become one of the largest manufacturers of appliances in the world.  I recently purchased an Electrolux range and will let you know what I think of it over time.  I am enjoying the convection option for baking, double oven feature, and large capacity.  If you are in the market for a range or will be, there are a few items to consider.

Range Checklist

2.  Gas, electric, or combination.  You will need to verify your connections or speak with a contractor to install the hookup.  

3.  Size.  Again you will need to verify the measurements for the width, height, and depth.  If you are seeking a larger model then you will need to speak with your kitchen designer and contractor.

4.  Test.  Ask friends, neighbors, and relatives for their opinions.  Ask to see if any will allow you a quick test drive with his or her model.

5.  Ratings.  Search for customer ratings on store websites and through Consumer Reports.

6.  Look for the *.  You need to know the total cost including delivery, installation, power cord, and haul-away of your old range.  Believe it or not the cord is usually not included.

7.  Cookware.  If you choose a ceramic top/flat top stove some of your cookware may not work with the surface.  Flat bottomed cookware, pots, pans, griddles, et cetera are required.
