I couldn't find a recent thread on this subject and apologize if this is a dead horse. I would like to hear your opinion of budget-friendly pro-style freestanding gas ranges. $10,000 is the top limit of my budget for all of my kitchen appliances, 36-inch range, refrigerator, dishwasher, and hood. Because of Covid prices thus far, there is absolutely no wiggle room in this budget The budget goes further if I bundle them. What are your opinions of brands such as Kucht, Bertazzoni, Smeg, Verona, Z-line, Forno, Thor, Dacor, NXR...or any other appliance maker in this category. There are so many!

7 years ago we purchased a double oven, dual fuel, Verona. It had its issues, burners ran hot, uneven baking, heating coils burning out, complete disassembly to clean oven glass... but we really liked the look! I am hoping that more recent models have been improved. Please share your opinions/experiences!
