    Disappointed with the Electrolux entries and with Electrolux Design Group. More
    hype than bite and lacking any real credibility!

    To Electrolux I’d say, please no more decisions made against stylistic product gestures for the creation of yet again
    more plastic with meaningless content!

    Thanks!
