Electrolux E130EF45QS Electric Range: Design & features  

  • Freestanding
  • 30 inches
  • 4.6 cubic feet capacity
  • Self-cleaning function
  • Three-year warranty

The capacity of this oven is a little smaller than some of the others we’ve reviewed but it does feature five cooking elements on top. The cooktop is also made of glass making it easy to clean. 

Inside the oven, features have been well thought-out, even down to simple things like the oven rack shelf which has a ball bearing system, so that you can take things out of the oven with ease - especially handy when it’s a heavy dutch oven you need to take out of the oven.

The oven also has a Perfect Taste Dual Convection feature which makes the dual fan circulate air through the oven more evenly, providing a better bake for your food. 

The Electrolux E130EF45QS Electric Range has a self-clean mode but keeps other elements simple like the manual controls on the front. 

While the warming drawer may be useful for some, it does mean you miss out on some oven space. What you lack in oven space however, is accommodated for in the five elements on top.
