Electrolux, Kenmore Elite or KitchenAid oven?

nerdyhousewifeApril 22, 2012

Sears has a 50% off sale on their wall ovens right now. I was planning on buying the Electrolux because it is rated highly in Consumer Reports. However, the Kenmore Elite is actually made by Electrolux, has all the same features, and is $1200 cheaper for double oven ($2899 vs $1669).

On the other hand, it says Kenmore on it and it is, perhaps, even more modern looking than the Electrolux.

Here are the two options:

Electrolux ($2899 - even online):

Kenmore Elite ($1669 w/ Sears card):

I'll throw in the KitchenAid, which is rated half as good as the Electrolux on Consumer Reports but has the best appearance to me:

KitchenAid ($2294 online):

Which oven should I buy?

Have you gone to look at any of these in person to see if you like them or not, to me that is the biggest thing to do. I loved the look of one model but hated how the racks and doors felt and after that wouldn't consider it even if it was the best rated product on the market.

I personally am considering the 30" version in a single wall oven for the Electrolux and love the look and feel, though I am putting that up against a Wolf as to which we will end up buying to be honest.

I am headed to Sears tomorrow. I hope I like the Kenmore Elite. I am replacing a 22 year old GE which functions fine but is looking quite sad.
