Are both of these products made by Berta? I know a current thread running says the SMEG is, what about Verona?
Verona is a private label product built to spec for New England Associates, it is Italian manufacturing and was originally DeLonghi produced
Verona is imported from italy by a company called EuroChef (www.eurochefusa.com).
I hear they are cooking machines and that their service is unbeatable. The prices compared to SMEG are pretty reasonabl and the performance is said to be much better.
