When we were remodeling our home, we also purchased a brand new stove for our secondary kitchen in the basement. I chose this range specifically for design and not at all for price. Electrolux Slide In Range was far from inexpensive but, the sales person said it was safer for the area we were installing it. I love the size of the range because it isn't really awkward to move. The top of the oven is made of a durable glass top. The good thing about that is there's no visible fire, just a warm eye so it's much more difficult for it to catch fire. The bad part about it is that if the glass breaks, you are in for an extreme bill because they are not easily replaced and I had to actually order one online and pay for installation. It's eyes seem to balance the temperature consistently. The very best thing about it is how simple it is to clean. It doesn't take much effort because instead of having to remove eyes and scrub, it can be sprayed and wiped down. It's a really great appliance but I would compare prices as well, it's pricey. Durability The glass top can be broken.
