Electrolux was once the icon of European appliance design. Smooth lines and European chic were the brand's trademark. But Electrolux has become very comfortable with the thought of selling their appliances worldwide. The Icon line -- "Designed for the Well-Lived Home"--is perfectly elegant for any kitchen, no matter which part of the globe it is located in. The Icon Microwave is exceptionally sleek, indicative of the rest of the line. Its stainless steel panels let it blend in with any modern kitchen. It also has all the features that have become a requirement for the microwave. … Read more

You must also use pots and pans made of magnetic material such as stainless steel or cast iron on induction burners. You can … Read more
This sounds too good to be true, but we're putting our faith in it anyway because we love the idea so much.
Electrolux, which has already invented the washing machine from the future (ultraviolet light), has outdone itself with the ultimate in next-generation dryers: one that helps with the ironing. The "Iron Aid" steam dryer doesn't exactly iron the clothes, according to Appliancist, but it does have "dewrinkling" feature that adds a steam phase at the end of the regular drying cycle. The 20-minute shvitz is enough to treat five shirts.
