for the price you are paying you will get a good residential gas stove, but I wouldn't call it high end. For that expect to pay more in the $3,000 range and up.
Now, you can still find a fine range for your money. All residential ranges should be insulated well enough to not burn you with regular use. However, on clean cycle, they all will get hot.
Frigidaire, JennAire, GE, Whirlpool, all make a variety of styles and price ranges.
Do you want 2 oven, 1 oven warming drawer, 4 burner 5 burner or bridgeburner (for a griddle). Once you get your must haves you will eliminate some brands.
I have had good results from Frigidaire and Whirlpool in the past. However, I currently own a Wolf so I am out of the price range you are looking for.
I am sure many others will share their experiences with you here.
