Well, what concerned me about the Electrolux models they had at Costco a while back was just how damned CHEAP they felt (buttons and all). They seemed guaranteed to break upon arrival at home. The Cuisinarts seemed better, and ours has lasted, despite heavy use. The prices were not very different, either. It parallels our experience with better-made Dr. Goods ovens (Taiwan company controlling quality, made in China) vs. Kaiser (made in China, flimsy to the touch even when new, in Costco). I'd rather pay a couple hundred NT more for something that feels more solidly built, personally.
