It has 5 large burners that cook at varying amounts of heat and it's taken some time to get used to this (previous range was also gas, but it was a cheap JennAir product)! The heat is even across the bottom of the pans and the temperature is easily controlled by the knobs.
One reason I wanted this particular brand is that there is no electronic control panel for the oven, so no malfunctions. Everything is knob-and-dial. What this means, though, is that the oven does not "ding" at you when it is at its set temperature. This has also taken some getting used to; first solving with an oven thermometer, and now just knowing how many minutes it takes to get to X temperature. It holds heat very consistently and cooks beautifully. I'm learning to use the convection mode (didn't have it on previous range), but the food tastes delicious.
I will note that the right oven is quite small. It holds a 9x13 baking dish, but nothing bigger. The left oven can hold something as wide as 16.5" but it will not hold an enormous turkey roasting pan, for example (the pan fits, but the handles make it too wide).
No issues with knobs, as the previous reviewer mentioned. Mine are metal, not plastic, so maybe that has changed since the review was posted.
Overall, I'd recommend this range for anyone who loves to cook!"

Review 2 for Verona 36" Freestanding Gas Range VEFSGG365D
Would Recommend: Yes
Beautiful stove, great value, cheap plastic knobs
Pros: great value and beautiful.
Cons: cheap plastic knobs difficult to find/replace.
"We've had the pleasure of owning this stove for 6 months. It is beautiful, functional, and a value at $3k. We love the mini oven which is as the standard size we need for our meals. Don't be fooled by the "small" size of the larger oven, it is big enough to bake a large turkey and comes with convection function.
Beware of the cheap plastic knobs that break often, particularly the middle "DUAL" knob that has broken twice on us in the 6 months that we've owned this stove. This knob broke within the first week of owning the stove. It took over a month to get a replacement knob from EuroChef. 5 months later the replacement knob broke and we are now waiting 5 days for another replacement. I'm a bit concerned at this point because upon asking EuroChef about the warranty on these knobs, I'm told I will need to buy a warranty extension for any more "repairs" after a year. EuroChef disagrees with me -- these are the same knobs that they've always made and feels I've just had bad luck with the knobs I received."
