Good proclaims LaCanche Ranges "both excellent and beautiful" and a must-have for serious cooks. Produced in the Burgundy region of France, the units come in several sizes with removable searing grills and griddle plates, plate-warming cabinets, and external rotisseries. The 18,000-BTU burners “give an intensity of heat and control that is unsurpassed,” adds Good. Choose from 10 colors. LaCanche, 800.570.2433; www.lacancheusa.com.
