We understand how stressful a kitchen renovation or new build can be, and we are here to help you! Our first blog in this series covered dual fuel ranges, flame failure safety devices, BTUs and more. There is a great deal more industry lingo in the appliance world, so we’re bringing you part two to help guide you through appliance selection and terminology queries.
If you love cooking Asian-inspired dishes, you will want to have a cast iron wok ring accessory in your collection. A wok ring holds the round-bottomed pan steady and in its place while you’re stir-frying. It also regulates heat by concentrating it at the bottom of the wok.
Cylinder Legs, Plinth Legs, Wrap-Arounds and Toe Kicks – What’s the Difference?
In appliance design, furniture-style legs may be placed in each corner at the base of your appliance to give it a “floating” look. Appliance legs are normally in a sleek, cylinder style or a more decorative, squared plinth design.
The alternative to furniture-style legs is a toe kick (aka a wrap-around) that covers the gap between the bottom of the range and the floor for a solid base style. If you prefer uniformity and want to minimize cleaning under the range, then a toe kick/wrap-around would be your ideal choice. Or, if you would rather keep the space open to create an “airy” and decorative look in your kitchen, then cylinder or plinth legs would be the right option for you. Verona Appliances offers all three options, allowing a homeowner to design a range that best meets their kitchen space wants or needs.
One great aspect of Verona’s line of gas cooktops and ranges are the high-power burners. The burner heads are positioned close to the flame for rapid boiling or a high-heat sear.
While the BTU power can certainly be placed on a simmer level for more delicate recipes such as melting chocolate or slow simmered dishes, you may want a simmer plate for an even lower heat. Verona’s heavy-duty cast-iron simmer plate will cut BTU power down by 50% while also continuing to evenly disperse heat.

An LP Kit is necessary to convert a gas-powered cooking appliance from a natural gas connection to a liquid propane (LP) connection. The conversion should be performed by a qualified appliance installer or plumber, as a poorly completed conversion may prevent the appliance from functioning properly or could cause a dangerous gas leak.
