Elux or Frigidaire Induction Range, please help decide.

Well, our old GE coil stove has basically kicked the bucket and we've decided to get a new stove. After a lot of research here, we're going with induction. I want to keep it under $2,000, so that kinda limits our choices. I have narrowed it down to the Frigidaire FGIF3061SS or the Electrolux EI30IF40SS. From what I've read here, I believe those to be the best 2 in my price range, but please correct me if I'm mistaken. My husband is the cook and he cooks at least 6 nights per week, so I want to get him something good.

I really don't know which to choose! I like the control knobs on the Frigidaire, but the Elux seems fancier or something. The price difference between them is fairly nominal. The warming drawer on the Elux is not something that I care if we have or not.

Now, I thought I read something about the blue interior of the Elux being problematic in some way, but I can't seem to find the thread I was reading.

Any advice in helping me choose between the 2 would be fantastic. Or if you have another model under $2k that you recommend instead, please let me know.
