If you have to cut your budget but still want a solid, great stove, this is my recommendation. My friend Brett, who is an architect for a real estate firm here in NYC, buys lots of appliances for the buildings he renovates and tipped me off to the Premier Pro Series. I have lived with two in the past two years and been totally impressed. A no-frills stove with a good bit of heft, clean stainless steel, solid grates and great gas burners, this is the best of the low end. Triple this price, and you'll start to get something better.
