Electrolux French Door Refrigerator

Written by Appliance Dude | June 15th, 2009

In the world of kitchen appliances, one of the best stories of 2009 has been the introduction and stellar sales performance of the Electrolux refrigerator line. Curto’s has sold a ton of these refrigerators and so far there hasn’t been any complaints, problems or bad reviews for any of the Electrolux refrigerators. In particular, the counter depth french door style, introduced a few months ago has been one of the top sellers on Curto’s appliance showroom floor. It seems that consumers are backing away from spending $5000-$9000 on a built-in refrigerator, and instead are opting for the counter depth Electrolux fridge which looks right at home in kitchens boasting other high end appliances. The recent top-seller has been the EW23BC70IS which has a UMRP price os $3699.

Bosch 800 Plus + Series Dishwashers

Written by Appliance Dude | June 15th, 2009

Bosch has raised the bar on dishwashers again with the introduction of the 800 Series Plus + line.

They are available in both Integra (no visible controls) and the Evolution (visible controls) lines.

These new dishwashers are squarely aimed at competing against Miele’s La Perla and Optima series dishwashers.

Check out this video of the 800 series Bosch dishwashers.

Electrolux French Door vs. GE Cafe French Door Refrigerator

Written by Appliance Dude | June 2nd, 2009

Since the economy crashed last fall, it’s been amazing to watch how consumers appliance preferences have changed.  The high-end lines have been displaced by the upper-middle tier. Bad news for Viking et al, good news for KitchenAid, JennAir and especially the new line of Electrolux appliances and the GE Cafe line.

At Curto’s we’ve extensively trained our sales force on both lines,  placed the GE Cafe and Electrolux displays back to back in a premium spot in the showroom and maintained the notion ‘let the best line win”.

We just had the GE cafe and Electrolux french door refrigerators added to the displays and it’s been interesting getting customer’s feedback. Here’s what I’ve heard from consumers:

Electrolux French Door Pros

– gorgeous design, interior lighting is “amazing”

– box seems well built

Electrolux French Door Cons

– price tag is a joke ($2899-$3699, set by Electrolux via UMRP policy)

– ice machine takes away valuable space in fridge (good point – why is the ice machine located in the refrigerator?)

GE Cafe French Door Pros

– Nice price! (over $800-1000 less than comparable stainless in Electrolux)

GE Cafe French Door Cons

– Feels “cheaper” in comparison to Electrolux when opening doors and drawers
