Propane range under $2k?

I just bought a house and need to swap out all the appliances. Right now there's room for a 30" range, but I can move some stuff around to fit a 36". I don't need anything fancy, and really have to keep it at 2k Max.

Looking for recommendations that'll work with an OTR microwave.

I saw a NXR 36" at a local discount/scratch and dent store for 1900, but I think it might be natural gas. It was manufactured in 2008 which might be good since I heard the newer ones use cheaper steel.

But, assuming that idea isn't available, what would you recommend in my price range?

    Most gas ranges can be configured for either NG or LP. The NXR conversion kit is $90. If you like it otherwise, conversion shouldn't be a big issue.

      Very interesting, thanks for that link.

      Would still like to consider some recommendations as well.
