Electrolux EI26SS30JS 26 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Stainless Steel Review
It's a decent fridge, so if you can find a good sale, go right ahead and buy it in good faith.
We were quite excited when we received a shipment containing the Electrolux EI26SS30JS. It's a brand new product, and the first Electrolux fridge that we've gotten into our labs; as such, we were very interested to see how it would hold up against the competition. As is often the case with a middle-of-the-road appliance—complete with a middle-of-the-road MSRP of $1899–it came as a bit of a surprise that a number of our tests produced results that we weren't terribly thrilled with. Unusually poor moisture retention, a slightly inaccurate thermostat, and only average energy efficiency meant there really wasn't anything terribly remarkable about this particular model. That's not to say it's not a good appliance: temperatures in both the fridge and freezer were excellent with respect to long-term consistency, and you get plenty of space in both compartments. However, when you throw in the lack of readily available discounts—the best we found was $1699 on Amazon Prime—there's just very little about this fridge that makes the effort needed to find one not worth it when you consider the vast number of other similarly designed models with slightly lower prices.
