Best all-electric slide-in or free standing range

Hi again,
I currently have a freestanding Frigidaire convection smoothtop with warming drawer that I love. Since I'm getting new counters I figured this would be the best time to replace my 10+year old range,but I would only be replacing it for the granite cutting to fit appliance situation, not because I really need a new range. I really do like my current range, but my next one will either be that GE Cafe freestanding that looks like a slide-in or an actual slide-in. Should I do this now or can I wait until the oven poops out? I wasn't sure how they go about changing a granite counter (which I'll be installing now) from freestanding TO slide in, or if it's a big or little deal.

ummmm sorry, I forgot that I was also asking your opinions on your fav electric range, too.

RE: Best all-electric slide-in or free standing range

I would love to have a slide in range but the only one that fits our budget is the electric Frididaire FGES3065. Does Frigidaire have a good reputation for electric ranges? Would it be better to stick with a stand alone to get better quality for less money?

We just got the GE 30" slide-in with the induction cooktop and convection oven. It is flat-out amazing to cook on compared to our old KA flattop electric. Superfast responsiveness, wider range of heat than electric or gas, HUGE oven, plus a warming drawer. Not to mention being able to place paper towels under the pan while you cook, to catch spills and spatters.

I would never go back to electric or gas after using this.

The important information is contained in the measurements for the slide-in installation instructions. Also consider your backsplash which will run to counter level behind the range. If you have deep counters there may be a segment behind the range.
