Electrolux or another range? OTR micro required.
We thought we wanted a electric Electrolux slide in range until we found too many negative reviews confirming my angst about an electronic panel right above the door opening = board failures.
We are about to install new granite tops and wanted the clean look of a slide in. We are not going to redo our custom cabinets that are configured for an OTR microwave and there is no option to vent the micro hood outside because this is an interior wall. That was the reason for electric.
After reading reviews on other brands like kitchen aid and Bosch who also appear riddled with problems we are totally frustrated and our project is on hold until we select appliances.
We have 32" between the range top and the bottom of the upper cabinet. That leaves only 15-17" clearance between the range and a OTR microwave. Could we go with a gas range at that clearance? Would you knowing we don't have the option of an exterior vent? Are there any reliable good looking slide in electric ranges?
