Two Questions: Electrolux Double Oven and cleaning stainless steel stoves

Hi everyone,

I'm in the middle of the planning stages of my kitchen remodel. Because of space considerations, and the desire to have the occasional use of two ovens, I had settled on one of the GE Profile Double Ovens contained in a single oven platform.

You can see a link here:

When I was shopping recently, however, I discovered that Electrolux has begun a huge rollout of kitchen appliances. From what I've read, they've been one of the leading European appliance manufacturers for the past 70 years, best known in the States for their vacuum cleaners. The new Electrolux seems to blow the GE Profile out of the water (at least through it's appearances, which everyone knows can be deceiving). I'm wondering if anyone on Chowhound has any experience with these ovens. I'm leaning heavily towards this--it looks like it has all the functions I would ever want, plus some, and it's aesthetically very pleasing.

You can check it out here, if you're curious:

As well as at the Electrolux website here:

The one downside for me is the fact that the top is stainless steel...I'm a messy cook! :-)

Those of you who have stainless steel, how difficult is it to clean? As I've been contemplating it, I've thought that perhaps a good idea would be to use one of those hand held steam powered cleaners with the varying nozzles to get the caked on gunk off without resorting to using a scotch pad that might mar the surface.

I'd appreciate any feedback, and thanks ahead of time!
