Verona Celebrates 20 Years in the US

April 12, 2021

Since 1958 the family-owned, Italian-made line of ranges, ovens and cooktops has been a preferred appliance brand featured in upscale kitchens throughout Europe. This year, Verona celebrates 20 years in the U.S. market.

From 2001 to today, the brand has offered a wide range of cooking appliances suitable for any size kitchen on both sides of the Atlantic. To honor this milestone, Verona offers a journey through the evolution of its product line innovations – highlighting what makes Verona the chef-inspired appliance maker for those who want the look and functionality of a professional appliance for their home.

The one that started it all, Verona’s 12-in. gas cooktop, which featured one large and one small sealed burner with electronic ignition launched in the U.S. in 2001. Finish offerings included black, white, bisque and stainless steel. The compact model was part of a full cooktop collection that was available in up to a 36-in. size.

In 2011, Verona debuted a variety of color options for its range collection, including matte black, burgundy, antique white and white. The next year was a big one for the brand with the launch of a standard American-sized 30-in. Pro Style Deluxe Range. The new collection was engineered specifically for the U.S. market and was packed with professional quality features such as a convection gas oven, four-burner cooktop, a digital clock and timer, heavy-duty cast iron grates and more. Also launched that year was the VeronaPro line, which included upgraded 36- and 30-in. ranges, a 30-in. gas wall oven and 36-in. gas cooktop, all with powerful brass German-made burners and many aesthetic upgrades.

In 2019, Verona added two new colors and colored knobs to its line for the Designer series, as well as an online Designer Range Builder Tool that allowed designers to customize their Designer Series range. The Designer Range Builder provides users the option to preview any combination of fuel type, knob color and base color for their personalized appliance.

In its 20th year in the U.S., Verona celebrated with updated built-in collections, including the Designer Series 30-in. Gas Built-in Wall Oven, which has superior design upgrades including a soft-close door, commercial-style closed-door broiler, convection bake options and more. The brand also debuted the Designer Cooktop Collection with continuous cast-iron grates, high-power triple-ring brass burners and soft-touch rubberized round knobs.
