Looking for a range with a broiler above the rangetop.

When my wife and I lived in Dublin, Ireland, many years ago, our apartment contained a very simple stove which had an open broiler located at the back of the range and raised to eye level. We are looking for a new range and she bemoaning the lack of this feature in all we saw. My wife liked how she could literally watch her flans cook.
Does anyone know if a range on the American side of the Atlantic features this type of broiler?

  1. You can buy salamander broilers which are designed for eye-level mounting:

          Thanks to all for the help. Checking the prices though, I have decided to retire and devote all my time to the creation of a time machine, which, when complete, will return me to those halcyon days in Dublin. Then, after I find my old landlord, I will offer to buy the stove my wife liked.
          On the other hand, I have enjoyed asking the salesmen at appliance stores about Salamanders.

            A simple, inexpensive option might be to install a stainless steel shelf at the desired height and place a good toaster-oven on it.

              That could have worked once, but I hear that the space above the range will be filled with cabinets and a vent. A small toaster over will be placed on a counter near the stove, but it is electric and the wife misses the flames of our Dublin broiler.
              Thanks for the idea though.

        2. Something like this?

            Other than being on its side that would be fine if it were it gas. I fear my wife and I have lost on this wish. I am resigned to be flanless.
            Thanks for the idea though.
