Verona 36-inch Range
Very pleased with the quality and function of this range. Has a nice clean professional look and feel. We shopped extensively and don't believe there's a better product for the money. The only reason for not giving 5-stars is that we've set it up at the top of it's height range and the legs could be a little more sturdy. But, once set up and in-place seems to be okay.

The Good and The Bad on my Verona
Obviously the fact that I gave my Verona five stars, shows there is much much more good than bad with this range.Before purchasing we looked everywhere for a review on the stove and could not find a decent one anywhere, therefore I am going to write a detailed one about how I feel of the Verona we purchased. It came on time and was in perfect condition. It's a beautiful looking range, looks much more expensive than we paid and its been commented on a few times by various people working on our kitchen as a beautiful stove. One small detail left out of the purchase was that it does not come with a plug. We bought one from home depot and had out electrician install it (he was at the house anyways, thank goodness). As the gas hookup was being done, a feature we didn't know about was pointed out by the installer; the gas does not release from the elements when you turn the knob if it is turned without igniting. A safety feature that doesn't allow the gas to leak if the knobs are turned by accident or in our case by kids. It's extremely reassuring. The oven door is a bit stiff, what I mean by this it's spring is strong.. when closing the door it shuts a bit hard. Nothing I wasn't used to within a week or so. When cooking: The top elements are amazing, the flame from the middle element is huge and boils an extra large pot of boiling water within a couple minutes. Cooking inside the oven is an experience everytime as I am trying out all the diferent options it comes with for cooking. Downside is that the oven temperature cannot be exact as the dial shows only the numbers 12, 170, 210, 260, 300, 350, 390, 440, and 480. Unless you are cooking at one of these temperatures, you have to guess where the dial should be. Something I am working with just fine.
Overall, I give this range a 4 1/2 star.
It was worth the chance we took in purchasing it and I havn't seen a range yet for this price that even compares, and out kitchen looks amazing with it!
