Recommendation for 30" residential gas range?

Hi all - I am in the market for a 30" gas (LP) range, for a farm kitchen that will serve several purposes: canning large amounts of jam and other preserves (need high power burner for quick boiling), baking breads/muffins/etc to sell on our farmstand, and also doing cooking/preserving workshops. While there would be some advantages to a commercial range from a production perspective, I feel it's important for my workshops to use familiar equipment that anyone has in their own home and won't intimidate them, plus it will be easier not to run a 220V electric and deal with extra ventilation needs. I have spent a lot of time reviewing the pro-style models, which seemed like a good compromise and I have room for 36" width, but after reading countless horror stories I think I should probably go with something simpler and much less expensive - I am not about to spend $5-6K on something that will let me down, I'd rather spend $800-$1200 for a very good quality home appliance. I've found the discussion boards on this site to be full of great information so hoping folks can lend me their experienced advice. thanks!
