Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Posted by luvhome (My Page) on

Hi everyone.

I'm doing a kitchen remodel, and am considering this Verona VEFSGG365D 36" double oven gas range. My main criteria is the ability to bake two things at different temperatures simultaneously, and the fact that for 99% of my cooking/baking needs, a full-size oven is not needed. I'm thinking the smaller ovens would use less energy and heat up faster. But I have two concerns: 1) I have heard next to nothing about this brand, and 2) I don't know if the specs on the ovens seem too low, btu-wise: 13K and 9K. Maybe it's okay, since the ovens are small.

Here are the specs: I would very much appreciate any and all feedback.

Thank you so much!

Hi Luvhome,

Your search sounds like mine: 2 ovens, but not 2 full-sized ovens. Like you, we want the flexibility to cook two things at different temperatures -- and have the extra cooking space for large gatherings. What have you learned about the Verona? It seems to meet my needs, but I'd like to know more.


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Hi. Have you learned anything about this range? I also am interested in it but have not been able to find any info from people who actually have it. Have you had any luck?


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

I considered this but felt that 2 small ovens would not fit our needs. 18" ovens are very small.


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

I'm also considering this. Here's the manufacturer's link:

Anyone have any experience with this model or brand?

Thanks!

RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

I could be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if the range is made for Verona by Fisher & Paykel (or vice versa)

The manuals for the Fisher Paykel:

http://www.fisherpaykel.com//admin/pdfs/pdf_usecares/599397AOR36LDBGXugmUSCAw.pdf

and Verona:

http://eurochefusa.com/photos/p/660.pdf

are pretty much identical.

So apart from the controls, styling and colors, I would bet that the two function pretty much the same. There are several reviews of the FP on AJMadison's site.

RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Oops-- it appears that the oven for the Verona is electric and the FP's oven is gas. So not the same model-- but perhaps the same cooktop.

RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

I considered this also but ovens too small.


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Does anyone have this Verona double oven? I just bought one on a whim which is very unlike me. Verona VEFSGG365D 36" double oven gas range.


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Dilly, I don't have one but would love a report once you've used it!


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Two too small ovens means you can't cook anything large. No turkeys, only chickens. BTU's are too low to get a good sear. No good stir frys. It's all about looks, not function. You can get higher BTU's and two ovens in a 30" GE range.

$2159 on sale at HD

Or there's the $3059 Cafe with the smaller oven on top and the controls on the front.

RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Was wondering about the few who mentioned they bought this Verona- posted last year-- any updates? love it? hate it? I'm shopping for a dual fuel range and the Verona meets my depth limitation of 25". Thanks for any info!

Eurostoves, (Trevor) carries the Verona Stoves.

Nobody better than Trevor to give you "Factual Information" about the Veronas.

To me , the stove seems a bit "Anemic", the burners and especially the broiler. That is really a low output for a broiler and indeed it may set the record for a low power broiler but maybe you can simmer on it?

Here's the Link to Eurostoves and the Verona.

AGA has an oven which you can divide in two. Sounds rare, but interesting

RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Hi: I am also considering the Verona now. Verona makes a Single Oven Model too. I like the idea of 2 ovens, but want to be able to fit larger pans or cookie sheets: 36" Pro-style, Model VEFSGEL65S Dual Fuel Range, which looks like the professional ranges. I actually like the looks of it a little better. I asked a local store about it. they said it was a good range, but they are selling it. There isn't much written about it on line. Does anyone have one to give a review?


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Dilly_NY how are you liking your Verona dual oven? I'm at that same decision point. Considered all the others and want two ovens without having to lift a turkey off the floor (the GE Cafe/Maytag/Whirlpool/Kitchen-Aid stacked ovens)! Have considered the dual fuel Cafe that puts a full-sz oven above a warming drawer that will cook (up to 450 degrees) but then I saw this Verona... but can't find a review to get a feel for how it performs in the home.


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Also considering this range....but there is a lack of consumer information! Definitely worried about the size of the ovens and the low BTUs.


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

You should also consider the slow preheat for baking. Electric ovens often have a fast preheat feature. It depends on how long you want to heat your ovens before you can use them for baking. Fast preheat is important to me. One of many features of import.

Even baking.

Convection bake, convection broil, convection roast.

Good, powerful broiler.

Cool outside oven. Good insulation will heat up your kitchen less.

Self clean.
These are a few of my favorite things. Investigate before you buy.

RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

im curious as to whether any more information on verona 36 inch range is out there. has anyone purchased one?


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

I'm also curious. About to pull the trigger on my range.


 o
RE: Thoughts on Verona 36' Double Oven Gas Range

Hi everyone,
I'm looking at this oven. What did you choose for the backsplash? I'm told I can choose the island trim even though it's not in an island and it will be flush in the back. That looks better to me. Or we can choose the 8" backspash - more practical but won't look as good. They are telling me the other trims will increase the depth by 1 7/8". Not good. This is confusing. Can anyone shed some light on the trims? Thanks!
